Edith Schloss 

Hardcover | 13.72 x 2.29 x 20.83 cm | 336 pp

Picador | 2023 | 9780374190088

A bristling and brilliant memoir of the mid-twentieth-century New York School of painters and their times by the renowned artist and critic Edith Schloss, who, from the early years, was a member of the group that shifted the centre of the art world from Paris to New York.

This is an invaluable account by an artist at the centre of a landmark era in American art. Edith Schloss writes about the painters, poets, and musicians who were part of the post-war movements and about her life as an artist in New York and later in Italy, where she continued to paint and write until her death in 2011.

Schloss was born in Germany and moved to New York City during World War II. She became part of a thriving community of artists and intellectuals that included Elaine and Willem de Kooning, Larry Rivers, John Cage, and Frank O'Hara. She married the photographer and filmmaker Rudy Burckhardt. She was both a working artist and an incisive critic, and was a candid and gimlet-eyed witness of the close-knit community that was redefining the world of art. In Italy she spent time with Giorgio Morandi, Cy Twombly, Meret Oppenheim, and Francesca Woodman.

Schloss creates a rare and irreplaceable up-close record of an era of artistic innovation and the colourful characters who made it happen. Her canny observations are indispensable reading for all critics and researchers of this vital period in American art.
