Capturing his life's work, this retrospective of Sam Feinstein offers a glimpse into the art, philosophy, and teachings of an artist who painted for more than 70 years—the last 40 in self-chosen obscurity—while he explored the infinite potential of the visual language and continually refined color-forms in his dynamically expressive compositions. This collectible edition includes a DVD of Feinstein's 1950 documentary, Hans Hofmann, a 28-minute, black-and-white film focused on Hofmann's philosophy and principles of art that includes a sequence of Hofmann painting The Window, now in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum.


"Clearly and elegantly written." —Irving Sandler, author, Art of the Postmodern Era
