American Visionaries is a landmark publication highlighting masterworks in the Whitney Museum's extensive and unparalleled collection of 20th-and 21st- century American art. Organized by artist, the book features over 280 artists and over 390 works in all media. Although each artist has at least one illustration, many are represented by images of several works in different media. Unlike other museum handbooks, this book underscores one of the Whitney's unique characteristics - its philosophy of collecting in-depth, across media boundaries- and distinguishes it from other museum collection books. In addition, each artist has a text of 200-500 words that discusses the artist, career, work, and provides a context for understanding each artist's work within a larger art historical framework. These texts are written by the Whitney's curatorial staff as well as outside writers, experts in the field of 20th century American art. An introductory essay by Maxwell L. Anderson, Director of the Whitney and identifies important moments in the story of 20th century American art as they relate to the Museum. This book is written for a general audience and serves as both a primer and required reading for anyone interested in American art. (view table of contents)

Bob Thompson (1937-1966) was a figurative expressionist painter active in literary, musical, and artistic circles in New York and Europe from the late 1950s until his death in 1966. In the first book devoted solely to Thompson, the life and work of this pivotal figure in modern American art history and African American culture receive the attention they deserve.Judith Wilson situates Bob Thompson within the context of both contemporary artistic production and cultural trends of the fifties and sixties. She uses interviews, Thompson's diary entries and letters to his family, and his work to give a thoughtful and thorough interpretation of his art and persona. She traces Thompson's development—psychologically, socially, and artistically—effectively portraying his first encounters with art and bohemian culture and his intensely active period in Europe shortly before his death in Rome at the age of 29.Bob Thompson's life intersects several important currents in recent American culture, and his work reveals an unfinished quest for communal identity, says Wilson. His use of postmodern techniques of appropriation and pastiche embraced both the Western tradition and cultural resources specific to the African American experience. The publication of Bob Thompson recognizes the important role of the artist in the vanguard of twentieth-century American art.

In 1980, mysterious chalk drawings of simple outline figures began appearing on unused advertising space in New York City's subway stations. Combining the appeal of Disney cartoons with the sophisticated "primitivism" of such artists as Jean Dubuffet, these underground artworks were bold, humorous, accessible, subversive--and unmistakably the work of one man, Keith Haring. This is the first look back at this singular talent. 325 illustrations, 175 in color.
