Interviews with American Artists

David Sylvester, Author Yale University Press $42 (387p) ISBN 978-0-300-09204-2
Robert Rauschenberg, Louise Nevelson, Willem de Kooning, Helen Frankenthaler, Phillip Guston, Jasper Johns and many other luminaries of postwar 20th-century art were part of a celebrated series of interviews British art critic David Sylvester (Looking at Giacometti) recorded for the BBC during the 1960s. Transcribed, edited and collected here as Interviews with American Artists (along with a handful of more recent interviews with Jeff Koons, Alex Katz, Cy Twombly, and others), the interviews transport readers back to a moment of boundless artistic confidence and possibility.
