From inside dust jacket: "In The Drawings of Milton Avery several of Avery's paintings are shown along with the subject, the original painting, so the reader can trace precisely how he worked. Avery's concise and active line, his inspired use of distortion, his daring and lightheartedness--all make this selection a pleasure to own."
