Berman, Avis (ed). WILLIAM GLACKENS. 288 pages, fully illustrated in color. 4to, cloth. New York, Rizzoli, 2014.
This long-awaited publication accompanies the first major exhibition in fifty years on the artist William Glackens (1870-1938), an early proponent of modernist painting in America and a founding member of the Ashcan School. The catalogue is arranged chronologically in thematic chapters, and thorougly examines his career as a part of "The Eight" and subsequently as his aesthetic transitioned towards the post-impressionism of Prendergast and Maurer. Also included are prints, etchings, watercolors, and archival photographs (Glackens and Albert Barnes sitting on a log in 1920, a treasure), all crisply reproduced in this outstanding catalogue.
