Unveiling a fresh view of 20th-century art, this insightful, straightforward text, with many b/w reproductions, traces the emergence of a major American painter from childhood through schooling, professional success, and personal crises which sparked re-evaluation, a maturing of the artist and his masterful skills in draftsmanship and painting and, in turn, a startling metamorphosis. A splendid selection of color plates illuminates an engrossing discussion of iconographic, intuitive, and mystical elements which combine in the Igneous Man series of 1970. (P.H. Vandegrift).
