From back panel: "This is Evergreen Gallery book number five in a series of art books devoted to contemporary painters and sculptors, both American and foreign. Each work, perceptively presented by a leading authority, is richly illustrated...The color, in which color seems afloat in a fluid, frameless space, comprise a major part of Van Velde's limited output. Through them we can trace the evolution of an artist whose singularity of purpose has always made him something of an enigma to his contemporaries."
