50 New York Artists
About this item...
Published by Chronicle books in 1986, with an introduction by Richard Marshall.
From the flap: "50 New York Artists: A Critical Selection of Painters and Sculptors working in New York" is a striking selection of fifty internationally significant painters, sculptors, and photographers living and working in New York today. Whitney Museum of American Art curator Richard Marshall outlined the role these artists have played in the aesthetic development of the major movements of contemporary art, from abstract expressionism to new image painting. A compelling portrait of each artist by Robert Mapplethorpe (including a Self Portrait) combined with a representative work and a personal statement offer fascinating clues into each artist's highly individual vision."
