"Presented in a [...] spirit of lively, unstuffy curiosity... Thought-provoking."-Michael Glover, The Independent "Each of the essays accompanying the artists is thoughtful... There is an intimacy about the writing, and the artists, that one does not expect from a large, heavy [book]... Perhaps this is the element that lifts the book beyond a standard survey."-Laura McLean-Ferris, ArtReview "Lively survey? A useful tool in forming a sharper, broader sense of what is going on in the world of abstract painting."-Roberta Smith, The New York Times "Pictorially jazzy work? the visual energy and variety of these reproductions burst all pigeonholes. It's a wild ride of a reference book."-San Francisco Chronicle
