This important text with 96 pages and 103 color illustrations is devoted to an important formative phase of Arshile Gorky’s career. Melvin P. Lader, leading scholar on the artist’s work, establishes new critical ground expanding upon his extensive research and previous writings on the life and work of Arshile Gorky. With significant new insights and revelations into his early years, Mel Lader’s essay and Jack Rutberg’s preface bring to greater light a profound artistic relationship between Gorky and artist Hans Burkhardt, which would have an enduring impact. All of the works in this book were from Burkhardt‚s collection, with the majority of these – more than 100 works – having never before been exhibited or reproduced.
