The loft generation : from the de Koonings to Twombly : portraits and sketches, 1942-2011 / Edith Schloss ; edited by Mary Venturini ; photo editing by Jacob Burckhardt.
"A bristling and brilliant memoir of the mid-twentieth-century New York School of painters and their times by the renowned artist and critic Edith Schloss"-- Provided by publisher.
An artist at the center of a landmark era in American art, Schloss writes about the artists, poets, and musicians who were part of the postwar art movements in America. She covers both her life as an artist in America and later in Italy, where she continued to paint and write until her death in 2011. Both a working artist and an incisive art critic, Schloss was a candid observer of the close-knit community that was redefining American art. -- adapted from jacket.
