From the Publisher:
Superb oversize tribute to beloved American realist master. Lavishly produced. 120 colorplates.This superb oversize volume is the first that truly does justice to the immensely influential work of one of America's great artists. A friend and colleague of the Abstract Expressionists, he nevertheless maintained his commitment to representation, producing some of the most beloved images in American art history and a distinctly American brand of modernism.
