About the Author

Kim S. Theriault is Associate Professor of Art History, Theory, and Criticism at Dominican University.


"Kim Theriault's remarkable scholarly reassessment of Gorky comes as a breath of fresh air and will be considered in years to come as a landmark publication in the field of modern art and criticism. Theriault's critical study represents the first attempt to link the horrific and traumatic circumstances of Gorky's early life with his abstract paintings of the 1940s, which she persuasively argues to be a visual manifestation of displacement and trauma rather than simply the assimilation of modernist painting practices." - Michael Taylor, The Philadelphia Museum of Art"
