Also featured are Morris Louis, Noland, Oldenburg, and other Americans of the succeeding generation as well as a selection of works by early European modernists such as Arp, Giacometti, Léger, and Miró. With color illustrations throughout, the book features texts by 22 leading scholars, including David Anfam, Diane Kelder, and Richard Shiff.
