Comprehensive catalogue from the acclaimed exhibition at the East Village gallery, Karma, that reintroduced New York to the lonely, poignant art of an overlooked American Surrealist painter from the Midwest. Gertrude Abercrombie (1909–77), a key figure in midcentury American surrealism from the late 1930s until her death, Abercrombie made paintings populated by objects of personal significance—moons, towers, cats, pennants, Victorian furniture, shells, snails and doors—to create allegories for her own often precarious psychological states. Often presiding over these symbols was Abercrombie herself, who appears in numerous pictures as proud observer or witchy caricature. Edited by Dan Nadel. Text by Robert Storr, Susan Weininger, Robert Cozzelino, Dinah Livingston. Interview with Studs Terkel. Item #18246
