The Outlaw Bible of American Art

$ 39.95

The Outlaw Bible of American Art is a 700-page revolutionary art world alternative canon of marginalized or famed audodidactic  paint-slinging loners who followed their own outrageous, sometimes catastrophic visions to the heights of fame or the depths of Hell.

Documenting movements from the Post-war to the present, this anthological barbaric yawp contains manifestos, essays, interviews, and biographies from some of the most cutting edge American art writers plus hundred of full color and black and white images and rare photos that bring together everything from NO!artists, Blackstract Expressionists, Beats and Beckettian Distortionists to Dystopic Futuristic Pranksters, Subcultural Gonzo Anthropologists and Self-Mutilating Visionary Unigenderists in a rollicking visually gorgeous celebration of the reclaimed no-holds-barred spirit of American Art.
