Editorial Reviews

Robert Storr
One is grateful to those who invest in the economically doubtful business of republishing the work of major critics, and Max Kozloff's Cultivated Impasses: Essays on the Waning of the Avant-Garde 1964-1975 is a welcome rescue operation of just this kind. An American formalist of the old-school radicalized by the 60's, Kozloff wrote the first monograph on Jasper Johns and was the first to blow the whistle on foreign policy uses of American-type painting in the '50's. His essays have an unapoligetic high-mindedness that holds up well, and the prose is good.
