From back panel: "This is Evergreen Gallery book number three in a series of art books devoted to contemporary artists and sculptors, both American and foreign. Each work, perceptively presented by a leading authority, is richly illustrated...'De Stael was a painter: he had the true sense of painting. His material, for example. Then, too, he was always seeking freedom. His was an evolution. Basically, painting is like love. It is direct, it is powerful. And it was that way for De Stael.' These are the words of Georges Braque." Heavy and oversized items may require additional shipping.
