Other Publication Details:
"In canvases often enormous, there sit, crouch, writhe, and huddle, the emblematic everymen of our troubled times [...] Scared yet defiant, sometimes enclosed in white cubes like cells devised for a self-sought solitary confinement, at others imprisoned behind bars like metallic rain, they snarl at the beholder (of whose interest in them they seem rather conscious), neither revolting against their miserable condition, nor yet, it would appear, particularly enjoying it." p. 3
