About

First edition, very scarce hardback, published by The Devin-Adair Co., 1957

35 American painters, sculptors and architects discuss their work and one another with Selden Rodman, drawing together several golden ages of American creativity, with figures such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Edward Hopper and Alexander Calder to Jackson Pollock and Franz Kline. The conversations paint a colorful picture of the 1950s American art world from the perspective of the artist, with surprising opinions, cutting remarks and a bunch of luxurious houses.
