Good paperbound (shelf soil and wear, small chip out of top of spine). ** The fourth-anniversary exhibition of this gallery, one of the first co-operative Tenth Street galleries on the Lower East Side.

They include the five founding artists, as well as Philip Pearlstein (the semi-abstract "Cliff" is illustrated).

The woman artists include Lois Dodd (illustrated), Joan Mitchell, Ann Ryan, and many others. Scarce. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate.
