Reviews

"Exemplary....focuses not only upon the major figures of ascendant movements but also upon how a variety of independent-minded artists, energized by the vitality of the mid-century exchange of ideas, found individual means of expression."-The Washington Post Book World "The sort of grand marriage of criticism, history and biography that Edmund Wilson achieved in his finest books. . . . A thrilling achievement." -The Atlantic Monthly "Bound to stand as the definitive volume on this hectic and fertile period in American art for years to come."-Art News"Fascinating . . . by far the most thorough account of the 'triumph of American painting' that we have. . . . A splendid achievement and an exceptionally worthwhile read." -The Christian Science Monitor"Shows the incisiveness and pluck of George Bernard Shaw writing about music or Pauline Kael reviewing movies. . . . Opens onto new surprises at every turn."-San Francisco Chronicle"Few people write about art as beautifully, one might say as tenderly, as Jed Perl." -The Wall Street Journal
