Reviews about Larry Rivers (2):
Rivers' lengthy book gives a detailed depiction of NY's post-Abstract Expressionist scene, providing vivid scenarios of the painters, poets, musicians, gallery owners, and writers of 40s, 50s, and 60s Manhattan and Long Island. It can sit alongside volumes such as the Stevens and Swan biography of De Kooning, Sandler's memoir, and Digressions On Some Poems By Frank O'Hara as an evocation of post-War urban life for artists (forget Broyard or Dore Ashton's NY School). He writes in an entertaining way, observant of his scene and often self-deprecating if naive. His style is one filled with wit and verve. He offers reflections of his two marriages, relationship with Frank O'Hara, and other important attachments. He works through the steps of creating art and his sources of inspiration.

Rivers appears willing to explore any facet of his varied, high-achieving, often debased life. He seems not to realize that he also is providing a between-the-lines portrait of more than two decades of heroin-alcohol-marijuana addiction in all its attendant insanity, including shooting up during school, spending a fortune on intoxicants for himself and others, making pan-sexual advances toward mother-in-law, sister, homeless persons, triggering drug-induced health damage like cardiac irregularities and thyroid injuries. He relates his work on several continents and in numerous mediums. The book has ample color and B&W reproductions of the works he discusses.

In the mood for a tell-all contemporary artist autobiography? Feel like meeting a creative, loquacious, self-deprecating, and ruthlessly honest art super-star of the 1940's to the 1980's. Larry Rivers created himself, made 3200 art works (many enormous), and lived a life equal to ten peoples', yet somehow, despite revolving addictions, and no journals, remembered it all in breathtaking detail. The fastest 500 pages you'll find: a life in jazz as a saxophonist, international art icon, beloved teacher, imperfect parent, looney husband, and sex-addled crazy man. Treat yourself to a ring-side seat of the New York City art world as it once was, and can never be again, and enjoy cultural history at it's most vivid, most colorful, most robust
