Black Mountain College Dossier No.8 - Gregory Masurovsky
Gregory Masurovsky attended Black Mountain College as an impressionable teenager. Thus began his lifelong commitment to progressive graphic art. He and his late wife, the abstract painter Shirley Goldfarb, decided on their first visit to Paris to remain permanently. They encountered intellectual and artistic luminaries like de Beauvoir, Giacometti, and Sartre, and rising art stars like David Hockney, who painted a significant double portrait of them. The closest of their artistic and intellectual associations was with Michel Butor, a legendary French critic and philosopher. This BMC monograph features a rare gathering of important new texts, reflecting the collaboration that has always characterized Butor's work with Masurovsky.
