E. Gallatin on purchases for his Gallery of Living Art, a crucial influence on the early phases of the developing New York School. In France after World War II, however, he evolved a unique language of painting, employing people and objects that are both contructivist and naturalistic--his own language of signs populated by shopwindow dummies, newspaper readers, and startling nudes. In his return to figuration he may be compared to his close friends Balthus and Alberto Giacometti, even though his style is unique.This book is the first in English on the artist for some thirty years.

It accompanies a retrospective exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, Paris, commemorating the hundredth anniversary of his birth. It travels to the National Academy of Design, New York, in summer 2005.
