    "Franz Kline spent years struggling to find a style for himself and then achieved "overnight success" with his dramatic black and white abstractions. They were, in fact, so successful that they overwhelmed every other aspect of Kline's art, and as a result he has been oversimplified and underestilated. Now, after nearly twenty years of research, Harry F. Gaugh has writen the definitive volume on Kline, which provides the first comprehensive view of his life and work, and reveals how unexpectedly complex they both were… With its detaield yet thoroughly readable text and 170 illustrations (many never before published) this comprehensive volume brings to light much new information about Kline and enriches the reader's appreciation and understanding of his art."
