"Fairfield Porter (1907-1975) is one of the great American artists of the postwar period. His work is widely loved for its lyricism and apparently realist subject matter: still lifes, studio and other interiors, landscapes in Southampton, N.Y., and Great Spruce Head Island in Penobscot Bay, Maine, and portraits - including his many friends among the leading poets and artists of the New York School. Yet he was as concerned with color, light, paint handling, and composition as the Abstract Expressionists. The "natural" look of his paintings was achieved after a lifetime spent at his craft. In line with a long American tradition, Porter's art insists on the concrete and the specific rather than on the European heritage of the ideal and the general." "This project documents every known painting by Porter, more than 1,300 in all, dating from 1924 to 1975. Three essays by leading authorities place the work in the context of Porter's biography and ideology: "The Thought behind the Painting" by Rackstraw Downes; "An American Painter 'Dense with Experience'" by William C. Agee; and "A Life in Art" by John T. Spike. This definitive reference also includes a Chronology, Selected Bibliography, list of Museum and Corporate Collections, and Index."--BOOK JACKET
