Screening the Sexes

New York: Holt Rinehart and Winston, 1972. First Edition. INSCRIBED by Parker Tyler to Harold Rosenberg on the front endpaper: "Dear Harold / Many thanks! / As ever / Parker." Harold Rosenberg was an American writer, educator, philosopher and art critic, best known as the art critic for the New Yorker during the 1960s. He coined the term "Action Painting" in 1952 for what was later to be known as abstract expressionism, and was identified in Tom Wolfe's 1975 book "The Painted Word" as one of the three "kings of Cultureburg", so named for the enormous degree of influence their criticism exerted over the world of modern art."Screening the Sexes" is something of a milestone for Tyler, as it brought together what were probably the two most important facets of his life: film criticism and homosexuality. Fine in a Near Fine dust jacket. A superb association. Full provenance available.
