This book is published to accompany the first major exhibition of Still's work since his death in 1980. The artist's own monomaniacal control over his work has contributed to its relative obscurity compared with that of his coevals in the Abstract Expressionist school. Adding significantly to the literature on the artist, a general essay by Thomas Kellein (director of the Kuntshalle in Basel) describes the genesis of Still's unique contribution to Abstract Expressionism. Additional essays by Michael Auping, of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, and Susan Landauer, for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, discuss in detail the works in these collections that make up the exhibition. Patricia Still, the artist's widow, contributes a chronology of his life liberally sprinkled with quotes from the artist himself. Of great value are the color reproductions of the 33 works from the Buffalo collection and 30 from San Francisco's. Recommended for art libraries and strong collections of American or contemporary art.-- Martin R. Kalfatovic, Natl. Museum of American Art/Natl.
