"Franz Kline, one of the most celebrated painters of the twentieth century, once described his hometown as a "little Dutch settlement wrapped up in a cloud of coal dirt ... " He was referring to Lehighton, Pennsylvania, a railroad town nestled amid mountains rich with quartz and anthracite coal. And like the mineral deposits, Kline's later "action paintings" are infused with energy. The black-and-white lines command the kind of tension that transforms coal into diamonds, and single works have sold for over forty million dollars. Franz Kline in Coal Country is the first biography to examine Kline's formative years in Lehighton, Philadelphia, Boston, and London, before he became a founding member of the New York School, the ragtag group who stole the art world away from Paris after WWII. This book, according to Kline's sister, Dr. Louise Kline-Kelly, sets the record straight in more than one place. Compiled over three decades, Franz Kline in Coal Country also contains over 100 of his earliest drawings, cartoons, letters, photos, paintings, and linoleum-block prints. Most of these little-known works, rescued from the attics and scrapbooks of friends, appear here for the first time."

Smith College art professors Davis and Leshko showcase 100 paintings and sculptures from their institution's vaunted collection, encompassing Americans from Gilbert Stuart to Louise Nevelson and Europeans from Corot to Henry Moore. In the introduction, how and why Smith became steward of such a fine body of work is ascribed to the school's high-minded mission and its generous alumni donors. The rest of the book is divided into two sections, one American and the other European. Each individual full-color reproduction is accompanied by an informative one-page essay and a brief reading list. During several years of renovations at Smith, the items featured in this book are traveling to diverse sites, which should increase the book's appeal. 118 colour & 1 b/w illustrations

Franz Kline (1910?1962) was a leading figure among the Abstract Expressionists: his energetic black strokes on a white field are as recognizable as Jackson Pollock's drips or Mark Rothko's rectangles of glowing color. Kline's mature works of the 1950s display an astonishing mastery, locking contending forces into architectonic configurations that seem even larger than their actual size, which is considerable. According to an oft-repeated story, Kline arrived at his signature style in a single moment of inspiration, when he saw the individual strokes of one of his figurative drawings blown up to an enormous size with an opaque projector. The reality, of course, was somewhat more complex, as Harry F. Gaugh reveals in this sensitively written account of Kline's career. Drawing on extensive interviews with Kline's associates, Gaugh traces the artist's development through his early training as an illustrator in Boston and London; his penniless years in Greenwich Village, turning out figurative canvases for a few devoted patrons (and murals for barroom walls); and the progressive experiments with abstraction that finally led to his famous breakthrough. Gaugh also reminds us of the depth of Kline's oeuvre; in truth, the artist had never confined himself entirely to black and white, and before his untimely death he had begun a series of vibrantly colored canvases. The text is complemented by 170 illustrations, reproducing an ample selection of Kline's work, as well as notes on conservation and technique, and a detailed chronology. A model of art-historical writing, Franz Kline is, remarkably, still the only available monograph on its subject. It belongs on the book shelf of everyone with an interest in American painting.

Five women revolutionize the modern art world in postwar America in this "gratifying, generous, and lush" true story from a National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize finalist (Jennifer Szalai, New York Times). Set amid the most turbulent social and political period of modern times, Ninth Street Women is the impassioned, wild, sometimes tragic, always exhilarating chronicle of five women who dared to enter the male-dominated world of twentieth-century abstract painting -- not as muses but as artists. From their cold-water lofts, where they worked, drank, fought, and loved, these pioneers burst open the door to the art world for themselves and countless others to come. Gutsy and indomitable, Lee Krasner was a hell-raising leader among artists long before she became part of the modern art world's first celebrity couple by marrying Jackson Pollock. Elaine de Kooning, whose brilliant mind and peerless charm made her the emotional center of the New York School, used her work and words to build a bridge between the avant-garde and a public that scorned abstract art as a hoax. Grace Hartigan fearlessly abandoned life as a New Jersey housewife and mother to achieve stardom as one of the boldest painters of her generation. Joan Mitchell, whose notoriously tough exterior shielded a vulnerable artist within, escaped a privileged but emotionally damaging Chicago childhood to translate her fierce vision into magnificent canvases. And Helen Frankenthaler, the beautiful daughter of a prominent New York family, chose the difficult path of the creative life. Her gamble paid off: At twenty-three she created a work so original it launched a new school of painting. These women changed American art and society, tearing up the prevailing social code and replacing it with a doctrine of liberation. In Ninth Street Women, acclaimed author Mary Gabriel tells a remarkable and inspiring story of the power of art and artists in shaping not just postwar America but the future.
