How New York Stole the Idea of Modern Art - Abstract Expressionism, Freedom, and the Cold War

Author(s): Serge Guilbaut; Arthur Goldhammer (Translator)

History & Theory

"A provocative interpretation of the political and cultural history of the early cold war years. . . . By insisting that art, even art of the avant-garde, is part of the general culture, not autonomous or above it, he forces us to think differently not only about art and art history but about society itself."-New York Times Book Review
