Read full description of the books:
After the previous Taschen book, which sometimes felt like "Picasso for dummies", I found this one to be too dense for my little brain. The theories built in here were very interesting, but the way they were exposed was not always friendly for the neophyte I am in the history of American painting, psychanalisis, and so on, which left me slightly irritated at my own self, and wanting to read more about those topic - when I already had other plans. I hate when an author takes his readers' knowledge "for granted" (I somehow feel I'm not being taken care of) or when a book leaves me with a feeling of being uncomplete (or the other way around)
Remains a few, wonderful, full size - or even, better double pages - prints of his masterworks, a source of inspiration (jealousy ?) from the aspiring photographer and the discovery of one work I didn't know, and fell in love with (and made the book worth it) : http://www.nga.gov/exhibitions/2007/h...
