about this book

A richly detailed portrait of the founders of the New York art culture scene, The Last Avant-Garde provides a historical and personal perspective on an artistic movement that changed the world. From Frank O'Hara and John Ashbery to Jane Freilicher and Fairfield Porter, this colorful book brings to life the extraordinary creative ferment of the time and place, how these personal friendships affected the art itself and the powerful influence that a group of visual artists had on the literary efforts of the New York School.
