Top Customer Reviews: 5.0 out of 5 stars
An incredible monograph!
By Stootz, Art Lover on September 20, 2016
Format: Library Binding
This isn't my first review of a NY School Press book. I get incredibly excited and anxious when I hear a new title comes out. Ms Herskovic's books are incredibly accurate due to her research. Its not what "Joe tells Susan". Its digging for the truth. What appears is a sumptuous, fact filled, tour d'force. I have always heard of Albert Kotin but had no idea of the breadth of his work. From his easel paintings and murals with the WPA to his breathtaking Abstract Expressionist canvases, you get to see the journey of an incredibly gifted artist. You do not have to know that he was one of the major artists of the New York School and participated in all the Annuals. Just turn the pages and you know you are in the midst of greatness. Large color photographs, over 350 pages, and artist's statements, letters from his famous artist friends, fine portraits, and period photos, take you on a journey through the difficult hard working life of a very special talent!

Clarion Rating: 5 out of 5

"This book does much to elevate Albert Kotin into his rightful place alongside the other greats of abstract expressionism.

Marika Herskovic has gifted the art world with a well-researched monograph on Albert Kotin, a Russian-born American artist who was one of the first generation of abstract expressionists working and exhibiting in postwar New York City. Albert Kotin: American Abstract Expressionist of the 1950silluminates its subject’s prolific artistic output, and details his relationships with other New York School artists and writers during this exciting period.
.........Herskovic’s survey of Kotin’s oeuvre is not only a well-documented work of scholarship, but it also heralds the importance of this previously fairly unknown modern American artist. It includes an unearthed 1964 New York Herald-Tribune review of a one-man exhibition of Kotin’s work at the Byron Gallery: “Though neglected, Kotin’s statement has the unmistakable ring of truth and conviction.” This book does much to elevate the artist into his rightful place alongside the other greats of abstract expressionism."
