Albert York is the first monograph on the little known but intensely admired American painter who died in 2009 at eighty-one. York showed at Manhattan's Davis & Langdale Gallery beginning in 1963 and throughout his career. His shows had good reviews; his work sold but word of his special quality has just begun to spread into the wider world. His subjects are as ordinary—cows, trees in a meadow, flowers bunched in a tomato can—as his forms and paint handling powerful.
