This-book-was-a-long-time-in-coming:-it-began-with-a-paper-in-1993-after-a-
chance-encounter-in-the-University-of-Chicago-library-stacks,-building-even-
tually-into-a-doctoral-dissertation,-and-then-assumed-its-final-form-after-
additional-years-of-revision-and-research.
- Along-the-way-I-have-benefited-from-the-generosity-of-so-many-people-
over-so-many-years-that-I-begin-these-acknowledgments-with-a-profound-
intuition-of-its-ultimate-inadequacy.-I-have-incurred-any-number-of-debts-in-
writing-this-work.-Not-obligations,-but-rather-responsibilities,-for-which-this-
work,-and-these-insufficiently-brief-words,-are-but-a-small-gesture-toward-
their-fulfillment.-I-wish-to-acknowledge-my-deep-appreciation-for-the-many-
people-who-so-generously-gave-of-their-time-and-support-in-bringing-this-
book-to-fruition.-Their-inclusion-in-the-following-is-an-insufficient-gauge-of-
my-gratitude.
- I- would- first- like- to- thank- the- many- artists,- critics,- and- experts- who-
granted-access-to-private-collections,-who-extensively-gave-of-their-time-and-
opinions,-and-who-patiently-answered-my-endless-questions.-In-the-process,-
ACknowledgments
