With the second printing of this estimable 1990 book, the extraordinary oeuvre of one of America's great artists is made available, along with an introductory essay by Hilton Kramer, fully developed text by Robert Hobbs, a chronology, and a combined bibliography and exhibition history. The format is oversize (12x12"), allowing for luxurious display of 120 color plates and 38 b&w illustrations. Avery (1885-1965), became a serious full-time painter at the age of 40, lived in New York for the next 35 years, and created a body of work that engaged with the Abstract Expressionists yet found its own path and has been enormously influential.
