From Library Journal
This book is published to accompany the first major exhibition of Still's work since his death in 1980. The artist's own monomaniacal control over his work has contributed to its relative obscurity compared with that of his coevals in the Abstract Expressionist school. Adding significantly to the literature on the artist, a general essay by Thomas Kellein (director of the Kuntshalle in Basel) describes the genesis of Still's unique contribution to Abstract Expressionism. Additional essays by Michael Auping, of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, and Susan Landauer, for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, discuss in detail the works in these collections that make up the exhibition. Patricia Still, the artist's widow, contributes a chronology of his life liberally sprinkled with quotes from the artist...

Writings on Art

From Publishers Weekly
Rothko's multiform and abstract expressionist paintings make him one of the most important artists of the 20th century. Gathering all of the artist's writings held in public collections as well as texts in Rothko's descendants' hands, this book brings to light many of his theoretical stances, practical considerations and personal revelations. Arranged chronologically from 1934, the year after his first solo show, to 1969, the year before his suicide, the approximately 100 texts consist of letters to curators and to artists like Barnett Newman, Herbert Ferber and Robert Motherwell; notes about his approach to the teaching of art; and writings that explore art as a means of communication. Editor López-Remiro's introduction contextualizes the writings and doubles as a handy chronology of Rothko's life and...

Review
"A welcome addition to the scattered and contradictory information previously published about the New York School, this volume allows the reader to hear directly from many of the musicians and artists who came together in New York during the first half of the 20th century . . . Highly recommended."
–R.L. Wick, University of Colorado at Denver, Choice, September 2002

Book Description
The aged ranks of eastern Washington's old-time warriors and women of the chief Joseph band of Nez Perce, Chief Moses' Sinkiuse, and the San Poil-Nespelem, Yakima, Palouse, and other tribes were rapidly dimishing in the late 1930s. To compile an artistic and historical record of these people and their modern-day descendants, Washington State College established the Nespelem Art Colony. In summer sessions from 1937 to 1941, students and instructors took up residence in and around Nespelem, the headquarters of the Colville Confederated Tribes in north-central Washington. It was a colony in the true sense of the word, producing a prodigious amount of regional art. Close friendships developed between the artists and their subjects. During the eight-week sessions, some artists took quarters in Indian houses while others...

Christopher Knight, Los Angeles Times
"The thesis that Landauer lays out is completely convincing....I, for one, will never look at the origins of AbEx painting in quite the same way as before." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description
A free-spirited wave of creative energy swept through the San Francisco art community after World War II. Challenging accepted modes of painting, Abstract Expressionists produced highly experimental works that jolted the public out of its postwar complacency. Susan Landauer's comprehensive examination of this dynamic movement provides the first clear picture of the artists and influences that came together in San Francisco's invigorating world of Abstract Expressionism.
Landauer argues that Abstract...
