Rate this:
"Jacquelyn Serwer, assistant curator at the National Museum of American Art, gives an overview of Davis's thirty-five-year career. Artist and author Douglas Davis, who serves as critic for Newsweek magazine, discusses how Davis's work relates to issues of the avant-garde, postmodernism, and originality. Donald Kuspit, professor of art history at SUNY at Stony Brook, focuses on the stripe paintings. Kuspit, who sees music as a metaphor by which to understand the stripes' perceptual and emotional effects, examines the improvisational quality of Davis's work." --P. [3] of cover.
