2005 WRITERS NOTES BOOK AWARD, April 19, 2005:

"Herskovic overviews American abstract expressionism with this hefty volume of plates. Beyond the names you'll immediately recognize (Pollack,  De Kooning, Gorky, etc.)
this alphabetically arranged set takes a fair and complete look, including commentary from the artists.... We like Kline's ideas on size and space and also when De Kooning says, "spiritually I am wherever my spirit allows me to be." 

American Abstract should be a  fixture in libraries and the homes of the lovers of the form."
