Description
Born on the shores of Armenia's Lake Van, Arshile Gorky immigrated to the United States in 1920, where he became a forefather of the abstract expressionist movement; years before Pollock and Motherwell, he found ways to extend Surrealist dream imagery into a uniquely American abstraction, simply by pursuing Surrealism's insistence on the authenticity of interior experience freely transcribed on canvas. For Gorky this was no easy endeavor; critic Meyer Schapiro called him a "fervent scrutinizer" of paintings, an ability corroborated by his close friend Willem de Kooning (whose own painting owes much to Gorky). With 126 illustrations, this book offers reproductions of key works by Gorky, accompanied by his own writings and a collection of interviews.
