This is the most comprehensive publication to date on the painter Lennart Anderson (1928-2015). Anderson was described by the New York Times as one of the “most prominent and admired painters to translate figurative art into a modern idiom.” John Yau calls Anderson a “masterful colorist whose sensitivity to tonality and to tonal groupings is unrivaled,” and Hilton Kramer succinctly wrote that Anderson was a “Degas of our time.” This illustrated and scholarly publication pairs more than fifty full color reproductions of work, some never seen before, with essays by leading contemporary painters and art historians. 9780578252919 Inventory Number: I00211104
