Artworks that emphasize key elements of American Abstract Expressionism--such as the direct, tactile transferring of the artist's body movement to the canvas and ecriture or calligraphic abstractionism--are featured in this first-ever presentation of the privately held Daros Collection, soon to open its doors in Zurich to the public. An introduction by Daros curator and volume editor Fischer is followed by erudite yet easy-to-grasp essays by leading scholars on Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Joan Mitchell, Cy Twombly, Brice Marden, Andy Warhol, Jonathan Lasker, David Reed, Philip Taaffe, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. This unusual grouping, spanning four decades, is united by technique and conception. The catalog's layout and presentation are faultless. Striking reproductions, including many double foldouts, capture the paintings and details exquisitely. This unique work is highly recommended for research art collections.
