Folio. x, 653 (1)pp. Original dustjacket over red cloth with blue lettering on spine. Yellow endpapers. Frontispiece photograph. Newman's art assembled in this catalogue is presented by a most competent crew of experts starting with distinguished art historian Richard Shiff, who holds the Effie Marie Cain Regents Chair in Art at the University of Texas, Carol C. Mancusi-Ungaro, director of Conservation at the Whitney Museum, and Heidi Colsman-Freyberger, a noted researcher and bibliographer. Known as one of the major figures in abstract expressionism, particularly among the color field painters, Newman "attempts to create an abstract art as a moral reaction to the horrors of World War II" (Shiff). Profusely illustrated with full page color photographs by Bruce White including detailed information on medium, provenance, exhibition history, and bibliographical data for each work of art provided by Heidi Colsman-Freyberger. In addition the catalogue contains numerous in-text color and b/w photographs of artwork by other artists relevant to the understanding of Newman's place in art and art history.
