“Artists Unframed” Serves Up the Ultimate Snapshot

BY Catherine D. Anspon // 05.22.15

Hot off the press this month is Merry A. Foresta‘s scintillating art tome/photo album Artists Unframed (Princeton Architectural Press, May 20150, $24.95). Foresta, former photo curator at the Smithsonian Institution, raided the venerable institution’s Archives of American Art to select more than 100 largely unknown images that reveal candid moments in the lives of our country’s top creatives. The images encompass Warhol from pre-Factory to Superstar days, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo (in languid repose), the enigmatic Marcel Duchamp, edgy John Waters, and even Ab-Ex titan Jackson Pollock, who graces this volume’s cover, side-by-side with painter/wife Lee Krasner, captured in casual threads one afternoon in the country. Order a copy of the book here.
