The first comprehensive monograph on American painter Nicholas Krushenick (1929– 1999) considers his important career and presents an expansive selection of his paintings and studies. Nicholas Krushenick is a key figure in the history of late 20th-century American art. Juxtaposing broad black lines with bold, flat Liquitex colors, Krushenick created hard-edged abstractions that fill his canvases from corner to corner. His energetic forms used experiments in cut paper collage as a springboard, creating an aesthetic all his own that earned him the title “father of Pop abstraction.” This book offers a mix of archival writings and interviews with new perspectives on the artist who is largely considered a precursor to Pop Art. Preparatory drawings, early collages, and scenes of Krushenick in his studio offer insight into the artist’s creative process, while newly commissioned essays take a fresh look at a remarkable oeuvre.
