Summary
  • "Meyer Schapiro, legendary art historian, multidisciplinary critic, and inspiring teacher, was a leading figure in the intellectual and artistic life of New York from the early days of his association with Columbia University in the 1930s as a lecturer and then a professor, until his death in 1996 at the age of 91. Here, for the first time, Meyer Schapiro's own paintings, drawings, and sculpture are reproduced, providing a fascinating glimpse into the broad and interrelated interests of this Renaissance man."
  • "A preface by well-known author and New York Times art critic John Russell sets the stage for this unprecedented opportunity to view the art of a major art historian, and an introduction by Dr. Lillian Milgram Schapiro, his widow, offers insights into Meyer Schapiro's early art education." "The main portion of the book consists of over 200 of Meyer Schapiro's own artworks, reproduced in both color and black-and-white, that have been carefully selected by Dr. Lillian Milgram Schapiro, with the assistance of her nephew, Daniel Esterman."--BOOK JACKET
