Review Text

  • By W. Seals on June 29, 2012

    If Milton Avery is on your list of great painters, as it is mine, I recommend getting this book.It is a massive book of very high quality; the color plates are indeed phenomenal and Robert Hobbs' essay on Avery is insightful, although somewhat hagiographic.In my recent, growing collection of art books, it one of the best purchases I have made.

    Avery's work has always appealed to me -- simultaneously "simple" and complex. I was interested to learn he would sit and ponder a long time before he began painting, then paint his canvas decisively. Good habit for thoughtful work.

    this is the one- fantastic big reproductions and I can not get over what a talented painter he was. Love his work. Highly recommend this book !

    The book has lovely illustrations. If one is a fan of Avery, this is a good book to get and I recommend it.

    A bit disappointed.

  • By Drew J Panckeri on August 16, 2017

    This book is very irritating - there are hardly any color reproductions of Avery's work! The ones they've chosen to put in color are definitely not the ones I would have chosen.The text is good - very informative of his life, his contact with fellow artists, and the ups and downs of his career as the art world's attention wavered, never really settling on his work. This is worth it for the text if you're interested in Avery's life, but it is utterly disappointing when it comes to repros of his work. Most of my favorite works are not in the book, and the ones that are, are in black and white - which is pointless.

    This is a wonderful book with very nice reproductions of Avery's work. Also, the story of his life that is very interesting - especially the part about his wife who gave up her career to foster his. And his daughter, March, obviously a subject of many of his paintings. The only other book I have on Avery is centered on his later paintings, this book has more examples of his work and also tells of his wife's influence on his work. I googled her, Sally Michel, and was amazed at her talent. I love this book.
