really liked it
Recommended for: artists and designers
Read in January, 2000

One of the best artist biographies I've ever read. What can I say? I love sullen, abusive, self-hating, inarticulate, drunken visionaries who, despite their many personality flaws, changed the course of modern art forever. It just goes to show that good connections and lucky breaks paved the way to creating the illusion that he was a brilliant artist. Makes me wish I knew Peggy Guggenheim.
