Women of Abstract Expressionism

by: Irving Sandler
A long-awaited survey of female Abstract Expressionist artists revealing the richness and lasting influence of their work

The artists Jay DeFeo, Helen Frankenthaler, Grace Hartigan, Elaine de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, and many other women played major roles in the development of Abstract Expressionism, which flourished in New York and San Francisco in the 1940s and 1950s and has been recognized as the first fully American modern art movement.

Abstract Expressionism

by: Carter Ratcliff, Jeremy Lewison, Susan Davidson
Abstract Expressionism will forever be associated with the energy and vibrancy of 1950s New York. Artists injected a new sense of confidence in painting, experimenting with improvisation, spontaneity and color. This bold publication and the major exhibition it accompanies seek to reevaluate the movement, making the case that far from being unified, Abstract Expressionism was in fact complex and ever-changing. The volume includes works by the most celebrated artists associated with the movement―not just Pollock, Rothko and de Kooning, but also Kline, Newman, Still, Smith, Reinhardt and Gorky.

Agnes Martin: Paintings, Writings, Remembrances by Arne Glimcher

by: Arne Glimcher
Agnes Martin's career spanned over seven decades. Though a major influence on Minimalist painters, Martin saw her own work, more closely related to Abstract Expressionism, her paintings being 'meditations on innocence, beauty, happiness and love.' More than 130 of these works can be found in this book. Agnes Martin: Paintings, Writings, Remembrances is the first and only complete career retrospective publication of the visionary painter. This important and beautiful book brings together 130 of Martin's paintings and drawings, with her previously unpublished writings and lecture notes, which vividly illuminate her art.
