Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

For years it seemed that the American abstractionist Arthur Dove was nearly forgotten. This book, compiled to accompany the first major exhibition of his work since the early 1970s, is a worthy tribute to his legacy. Dove's small, vibrant, enigmatic abstractions, like those of his good friend Georgia O'Keeffe, were tied to his observations of the world around him. There were always a few of his works on view at the Washington, D.C., Phillips Collection, which sponsored the exhibition in conjunction with the Addison Gallery of American Art. However, Dove's work rarely turned up in print--except for the witty yet uncharacteristic collage The Critic--a monocle on roller skates. This collection, long overdue, is chock-a-block with color plates of paintings, collages, drawings, family photographs, and other biographical material, all woven together by the exhibition's curators in three graceful essays.

If you like Dove's work, and want color copies of as many of his paintings as possible, this is the book to get. It's worth every penny of the $50!

This is 2014. To ship by carrier pigeon - taking nearly 30 days to a large shipping destination like NYC - is abominable. To add insult to injury, betterwoeldbooks left a red $5.00 Strand Bookdtore label snack dab on the front (a NYC Bookdtore..I could have gone to Strand myself..& had the book faster...) as well as an inside sticker price of $2.00 from an Arizona Library sale. I guess it's asking too much to remove the price stickers from where they bought it themselves... Library stickers all over the cover. Will never order again from this place.
