The visionary work of Joan Snyder makes it abundantly clear that painting is not dead. Her abstracts truly flirt with the "real world."

This book is something to enjoy with a magnifying glass.

Actually worked with this artist! Hayden Herrera is an wonderful writer and art historian. Her biography of Arshile Gorky is a must read for Modern Art lovers. Joan Snyder has true artistic vision and a delight to work with!
