Roberto Marquez was born in Mexico, but has spent most of his career living and working in the United States, first in Arizona, then in New Jersey. His large classical canvases combine symbols taken from history, legend and the folk arts of Mexico with a strong autobiographical element. Taken together, his qualities have led critics to see him as the natural successor to the legendary Frida Kahlo. Increasingly regarded as perhaps the most important artist to have emerged from Mexico since the generation of Kahlo and Rivera, Marquez looks set to become a key name in American art for the 21st Century.

NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. Folio. 90pp. 44 duotone illustrations; 38 color plates. Twentieth Century Masters Series. First published in 1970 in Italy. No attribution of the presumed translation. Hardback with DJ. One of a series of monographs on great 20th-century artists, this title is concerned with Oskar Kokoschka, a major figure in the Expresionist movement. After studying in Vienna, where he was strongly influenced by Art Nouveau, he painted the first of his Expressionist portraits, characterized by restless draughtsmanship and broken patterns of colour. Seriously wounded in World War I, Kokoschka produced little work until 1924 when he began a series of journeys through Europe to refresh his creative spirit. During this period he embarked on a number of colour experiments, particularly in landscape paintings. Condemned as "degenerate" by the Nazi regime, his paintings in public collections were confiscated, and Kokoschka subsequently moved to London, and then to Switzerland. His late paintings retain the Expressionist qualities of his best mature work, and their increasing abstraction reveals a kinship to Abstract Expressionism. This book presents 82 of Kokoschka's works, 38 in color, in an interspersed accessible text.
