Ebook Version of Greg Masters’ For the Artists: Critical Writing, Volume 1

Crony Books is pleased to announce the publication of an ebook version of For the Artists: Critical Writing, Volume 1, by Greg Masters, with photos by Barry Kornbluh.

This collection of art reviews, critical essays and interviews with artists chronicles an exhilarating time in the art world of 1980s Manhattan when a burgeoning gallery scene in the East Village evolved to rival the more established gallery outposts on 57th Street.

And, Greg Masters, writing for a number of publications, covered it all — the well-known names as well as the lesser-recognized and younger painters, photographers, sculptors, filmmakers and creative folks working in various media — many of whom would gain lasting influence and market significance.

Complementing the text are 10 artist portraits by acclaimed photographer Barry Kornbluh, and reproductions of artists’ work, including two never-before-published drawings by Jean-Michel Basquiat.

The e-book is available right now for $2.99 on BookBaby. It can be pre-ordered on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks and other e-book platforms (for delivery July 10).
