First edition. Illustrated in black and white. Cloth. Near fine in dustjacket. Many of the photographs in this book were taken before the artists acquired fame and fortune. Instead of glamorous shots, taken paparazzi-style for a quick sale to the tabloids, these are insightful portraits, offering an exclusive glimpse into the world of art celebrity from 1957 to the present. Gruen's work in the 1950s for a New York photo agency put him into contact with some of the greatest photographers of the day, including Brassai, Robert Doisneau, Bill Brandt, Sabine Weiss and Man Ray. These relationships and his work as an art critic gave him exposure and experience. The result is a unique series of photographs which captures the essence of such well-known artists as Keith Haring. Jasper Johns and Yoko Ono.
