About the Book
In these paintings we see the influence of former teacher and lifelong friend Clyfford Still who he studied under at the San Francisco School of Fine Art but also the frenetic energy of the New York School. When the artist moved to Manhattan in 1952 he quickly became a central figure of the downtown art community. He was a regular at the Cedar Bar alongside Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline and enjoyed three solo exhibitions at the seminal Stable Gallery.
