This monograph surveys the paintings, murals, and works on paper of one of the first American artists to renounce abstract expressionism for realism. His works resonate with passionate morality and sensuality, visual poetry and emotional density. Here are glorious nudes set in backgrounds of complex patterns and shapes; still lifes; portraits; landscapes; and allegories.
