About this title


Published in association with the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, USA this is a major retrospective of Larry Rivers. Rivers, one of the original Pop artists on the 1950s art scene, is known for his rich and eclectic style. Inspired by sources as diverse as the impressionists, Napoleon and Hollywood movies, Rivers' work shows a keen sense of history and adventurous spirit. He was active not only in the visual arts but also in jazz, poetry and theatre. Rivers was a pivotal figure linking together the art scenes in Paris and New York. Still going strong at age 76, he remains the key artist in the East Hampton, New York scene where he lives and works. David Levy, director of the Corcoran and long-standing friend of Larry Rivers contributes the introduction, distinguished art critic Barbara Rose has written the lead essay and an additional essay on the themes of Rivers' work has been contributed by Jacquelyn Days Serwer, Chief Curator at the Corcoran Gallery.

About the Author:
