"Presented in a [...] spirit of lively, unstuffy curiosity... Thought-provoking."―Michael Glover, The Independent
"Each of the essays accompanying the artists is thoughtful... There is an intimacy about the writing, and the artists, that one does not expect from a large, heavy [book]... Perhaps this is the element that lifts the book beyond a standard survey."―Laura McLean-Ferris, ArtReview
"Lively survey? A useful tool in forming a sharper, broader sense of what is going on in the world of abstract painting."―Roberta Smith, The New York Times
"Pictorially jazzy work? the visual energy and variety of these reproductions burst all pigeonholes. It's a wild ride of a reference book."―San Francisco ChronicleAbout the Author:
