This title offers a superbly illustrated overview of the works, writings, and interviews of Arshile Gorky, one of the most influential artists of his generation. Born on the shores of Lake Van in Armenia, Arshile Gorky (1904-1948) emigrated to the United States in 1920 where he established himself as one of the greatest painters of the period and a seminal figure in the Abstract Expressionist movement. Although Gorky's life and artistic career were cut short by his suicide in 1948, the incredible body of work he left behind, which managed to synthesise Surrealism and the sensuous colour and mastery of the School of Paris with his own personal artistic form, secured his reputation as one of the last great surrealist painters and one of the first abstract expressionists.
