The First American Avant-Garde
Art, like politics, makes for strange bedfellows indeed, and the development of an avant-garde in the U.S. depended as much on socializing as on aesthetics. This lively social history recounts the adventures and amours of America’s first practitioners of the modern arts. Diagrams of the convoluted relationships, a chronology, a cast of characters, and much more shed additional light on an immensely appealing period.
