"Alfred Jensen's art is significant, not because it is a representative signpost of art historical progression, but because it is almost uncategorizable in its uniqueness." Preface by Michael Govan, with essays by Lynne Cooke, David Anfam, Michael Newman, and Maria Reidelbach.
This volume documents 23 series and more than 1,400 individual works, including the well-known series Thirteen Most Wanted Men, the box sculptures, approximately 300 works in the Jackie series, and the 1964 and 1964/65 Flowers series, among others.
Documenting an installation by Jessica Stockholder with essays by Lynne Cooke, Michael Govan, Ann Lauterbach, Jessica Stockholder, and Lynne Tillman. Richly illustrated, including a pop-up collage by Stockholder.
As a self-taught sign painter in Congo, Cheri Samba built his own thriving business, then left it behind to enter the stranger enterprise of fine art. His work remains rooted in his first profession?s stylized mix of realism and typography. Among the choice bits of dialogue that appear here are, ?Personally, I have a very long nose,? and ?Aha, so you?re Cheri Samba.? He is, unmistakably.
