‘A Wistful Dream of Far-Off Californian Glamour’: David Sylvester and the British View of American Art

2017

Abstract

David Sylvester’s criticism from the 1950s and 1960s combined enthusiasm for the vitality of new American art with ambivalence about its influence on British artists. This essay investigates Sylvester’s complex attitude towards American art through his writing, broadcasting and artist interviews.
