About this product
- DescriptionGreenwich Village is a collection of short essays and art by the hip and well-kwn artists, writers, musicians, dancers, actors, restaurateurs, and other neighbourhood habitues who have lived or live in the Village - from Mario Batali to Donna Karan, and John Guare to Sarah Jessica Parker. Every corner of the Village is represented in the book: There are recollections of jazz clubs and existentialism on Bleecker Street, edgy rock music at St. Mark's Place, folk singers and Hootenannies in Washington Square Park. And there are stories of Hans Hofmann teaching modern art on 8th Street, Ed Koch campaigning for Adlai Stevenson in Sheridan Square, and Lotte Lenya performing in The Three-Penny Opera on Christopher Street. The stories are illustrated with a variety of photographs, paintings, prints, and ephemera, including the paintings of Hans Hofmann, Franz Kline, and other abstract expressionists, as well as the photographs of Allen Ginsberg, Rudy Burckhardt, and Morris Engel. Ephemera include album covers from folk singers, pictures of masks and puppets created for the Village Halloween parade, theater posters of Karen Finley and John Leguizamo, and a map from 1961 showing the remarkable Tenth Street Galleries.
