2005 WRITERS NOTES BOOK AWARD, April 19, 2005 “Herskovic overviews American abstract expressionism with this hefty volume of plates. Beyond the names you’ll immediately recognize (Pollack, DeKooning, Gorky, etc.) this alphabetically arranged set takes a fair and complete look, including commentary from the artists…. We like Kline’s ideas on size and space and also when DeKooning says, “spiritually I am wherever my spirit allows me to be.” American Abstract should be a fixture in libraries and the homes of the lovers of the form.”
“Researchers will seek out this well designed selection.” ~Library Journal August 2003. Amazon .com opinion

Readers’ opinion: It is an important contribution to the study of Abstract Expressionism. 58 painters and sculptors are featured. Each of these artists have 2 works shown (full page) one abstract and one figurative work and an artist’s statement. The reproductions are excellent. There is also a Bio, and a listing of solo exhibitions and group exhibitions for each of these artists. An amazing amount of research and love went into this new production of the New York and Californian Schools abstract and figurative expressionism. You can see that these schools were actually a bonafide community of artists. This 254 page book was sumptuously printed and has a 12 x 9 1/2 inch format. The book has a black cloth binding and a handsome dust jacket with ALL the names of the listed artists. This platinum dust-jacket has black and red lettering which pops-out and is a stunning tribute to the artists. Ed. by Marika Herskovic, ISBN: 0967799422 New York School Press, 2009.
