The Painted Word

By Tom Wolfe
Narrated by Harold N. Cropp / 2 hours 6 minutes

No one skewers thepopular movements of American culture like Tom Wolfe. In 1975, he turned hissatirical pen to the pretensions of the contemporary art world, a world ofsocial climbing, elitist posturing, and ingeniously absurd self-justifyingtheorizing. He addresses the scope of Modern Art, from its founding days asAbstract Expressionism through its transformations to Pop, Op, Minimal, andConceptual. In the process he debunks the great American myth of Modern Art inan incandescent, hilarious, and devastating blast. Wolfe’s style has never beenmore dazzling, and his wit never more keen.
