Excerpt

For over twenty years Richard Pousette-Dart has been an important figure in the development of abstract painting in the United States, yet he is still only forty-seven. Therefore, this monograph, published on the occasion of the first retrospective exhibition of the artist's work, can be but an interim report. Drawings, watercolors and sculpture are not included here because of limited space.

The exhibition was selected with the close collaboration of the artist. Marie Hartley of the Betty Parsons Gallery and Mrs. Pousette-Dart have given invaluable assistance.

On behalf of the Whitney Museum, I would like to thank the following who so generously lent works to the exhibition and allowed them to be reproduced here: Equitable Life Assurance Society, New York; Mrs. Albert Greenfield, Philadelphia; Mrs. Frederick W. Hilles, New Haven; Museum of Modern Art; Frederick Ossorio, Greenwich, Conn.; Mrs. Maximillian Rose, New York; Mr. and Mrs. Robert C. Scull, Great Neck, N. Y.; and Mr. and Mrs. James W. Singer, Jr., St. Louis.

Special thanks are due to Mrs. Frederick W. Hilles and to Mr. and Mrs. Robert C. Scull for generously contributing color plates of their pictures for use in these pages, and also to the Betty Parsons Gallery for making it possible to reproduce Blood Wedding in color.

LLOYD GOODRICH, Director . . .
