The work of the Russian-American artist Ary Stillman (1891-1967) attracted great critical acclaim during the mid-twentieth century, but until recently his contribution to modern art has been largely overlooked. This lavishly illustrated volume -- the first major monograph ever devoted to Stillman -- traces the artist's development from his early impressionist and representational painting to his striking post-war Abstract Expressionist works. The book explores all the stylistic phases of Stillman's career, with essays on his Paris period, his innovative white-line drawings, his visit to Palestine and his final years in Mexico, and offers new perspectives on the history of American modernism.
