Description - Fairfield Porter by John Wilmerding

A must-have for those who love Andrew Wyeth, Wayne Thiebaud, and Milton Avery, this book on the American painter Fairfield Porter will be highly regarded. It is the first monograph of the artist to be published since 1992. The first new comprehensive survey on the beloved figurative realist painter Fairfield Porter to be published in more than two decades. With virtually all of the artist's previous publications now out of print, this much-anticipated volume is an important addition to the literature on this great American master.
