Want to know all about the beginning of the FUNK art movement and the Artists that started it and all, the great (and some forgotten) Artists from the Bay Area? This book is a treasure trove of information that is a must read. I was around while all this was happening and never knew half the story. Reading this publication is actually a mind enhancing experience and I would recommend it for anyone interested in Art (especially if you are an Art Student and want to expand you knowledge).

Format: Hardcover
ART IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA 1945 - 1980 is the last written document by the highly regarded, departed writer and critic Thomas Albright. Always an elegant writer, even when his message was quircky, Albright has left us with the definitve volume on the important art of San Francisco in the peak of its heyday. The chapters each represent a lecture presented by Albright and include indepth studies of Clyfford Still and the Explosion of Abstract Expressionism, Before the Storm: The Modernist Foundation, The Watershed: Funk, Pop, and Formalism, "Back to Nature": The Bay Area Figurative School, Conceptualism, Photorealism, etc. The written word is well illustrated with selected examples, but therein lies the only weakness of this book. In an overview this solid it would be so much finer were there double the number of examples of the artists being discussed. Still in all this is a magnificent volume and should be a part of every art library.

Albrights book touchrs on Who's Who in Bay Area Art. Which is a good start. Of course the book was written in the 80's and the author died about the time as the books publication. The research is first rate and he had the luck of knowing so many of the then contemporary Bay area artist personally.
