The Art of Rivalry focuses on four pairs of artists, their relationships, their rivalries, their influence on one another. Very interesting. I especially enjoyed the chapter on DeKooning and Pollock.
This book was recommended in a column in the Houston Chronicle of recent great books to read, so I read it, so I read it. Great? More like bizarre. I recommended it to my book club, so I'll see what they think later today. For now...waste of time.
