    One Reply to “Joan Snyder”

    1. The visionary work of Joan Snyder makes it abundantly clear that painting is not dead. Her abstracts truly flirt with the "real world." There is a child-like innocence about her work, and there is an emotional gulf that separates her from ordinary reflection and ordinary experience. She is quite astute when it comes to the translation of mood and bodily energy. This book is something to enjoy with a magnifying glass.

    2. Actually worked with this artist! Hayden Herrera is an wonderful writer and art historian. Her biography of Arshile Gorky is a must read for Modern Art lovers. Joan Snyder has true artistic vision and a delight to work with!

    3. I love Joan Snyder's style, and this book represents a cross-section of her work so thoroughly, tho making you want more.
