About the Author

Anne Middleton Wagner is Class of 1936 Chair of Modern and Contemporary Art at the University of California, Berkeley and Henry Moore Foundation Research Curator at the Tate. She is the author of Mother Stone: The Vitality of Modern British Sculpture and Three Artists (Three Women): Modernism and the Art of Hesse, Krasner, and O'Keeffe (UC Press) among other books.


"I found myself reading certain passages aloud, reveling in their conversational pace and cadence, their gentle wordplays and puns." Times Higher Education "The latter decades of the twentieth century were exciting, tumultuous years for the American art scene... Anne Middleton Wagner captures a great deal of this tension and excitement in these pieces." Zeteo (Cuny)
