It explores the full range of periods, artists, and movements: New York in the Forties; Calder, Hofmann, Gorky, Motherwell, De Kooning; Existentialism (Pollock, Newman, Rothko, David Smith); The New European Masters of the Late Forties (Dubuffet, Giacometti, Bacon), plus so much more. For anyone interested in Postwar Art.

From the Back Cover:

The premise of this book is that artists use their art to think about their experience; it gives them a language in which to work out a way of existing in the world. So the front and back of the cover are illustrated with some of the great artists featured in the book doing their work.
