Berkeley: University of California Press, 1989. First edition. Hardcover. 232p, many ills., most in color. Photo is cropped on right. Jacket lightly shelfworn. Very good / very good. Item #31119

Comprehensive study of an important generation of California painters, who turned away from abstraction to colorful figurative painting; also a few sculptors. Includes Diebenkorn, Bischoff, David Park, Nathan Oliveira, Joan Brown, and many others. The author argues that their "synthesis of modern expressionist paint handling and ostensibly traditional subjects constituted a new vernacular that was more coherent and unified than the responses of other artists to the crisis in abstract painting after 1945." Published to accompany an exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and elsewhere. Heavy; shipping/handling may be more than the default rate. Please keep this in mind when ordering.

Price: $35.00
