I saw the book about three weeks ago at my favorite Princeton Book Store. It was selling for full price which is about $40 and I wrote down the name to see later if I could get it on Amazon which I did with a seller for about $25. Being an artist myself, I always like to stay current with whats going on either nationally or internationally artistically as I am still working my way into the art world at a late stage in life. I thought the work was kind of cool and interesting and thought it could be inspirational as well as comparative and liked it at the book store but after I got it, I looked through it a few times and felt really unimpressed with the work and actually starting feeling sad about art. Most of the paintings were very greyed down, lots of black and whitish feelings, depressed. Others were too bright and too primary colored for me. I actually ended up giving the book to a friend for her birthday.

This is a wonderful book, filled with many interesting artists and good illustrations. Barry Schwabskys introductory essay is very thought provoking. Highly recommended.

Hmmm, disappointed in this book. Many pieces I wouldn't consider painting and the majority of them are strange. Now I like contemporary work so don't get me wrong. I paint abstracts and non-objective pieces, am pretty up on new and upcoming artists and read the art magazines but I really don't like this book much. The first one was much better.
