Contemporary ArtistsBook - 1989
The second edition (1983) is cited in Sheehy, BCL3 and ARBA. It shares the size and format of Contemporary architects and Contemporary photographers, and, to its discredit, the fragile plasticized paper-over-boards cover (a book of such bulk and subject to heavy use should have sturdy buckram-covered boards). ARBA has warned buyers of the second edition to retain the inclusive first. The change of greatest scholarly importance in the third is the revised literature citations. No respectable art reference collection can do without this title. The impecunious may choose to buy every other edition. The substance is admirable, detailing brief vital statistics, exhibitions by year, major collections of the artist's work, publications by, and on the artist, and a dense biography.
