From Booklist:

This exciting monograph applauds and embraces the art of Adja Yunkers, who was born in Latvia and spent many years teaching in New York City. In documenting the artist's pioneering woodcuts, deft collages, and compelling paintings in oil and acrylic, Bartelik interweaves facts and stories of Yunkers' long life with commentary on his prodigious output. Not content to be pigeonholed into categories, Yunkers remained true to himself by pursuing an artistic path of new ideas, thus liberating his work from a static stylistic trajectory. Toward the end of his days, Yunkers created sublime compositions imbued with a serene presence that could be likened to the inner tranquility experienced in a garden. Bartelik's well-researched effort presents a revelatory portrayal of this significant artist. Alice Joyce
