New York Mid-Century: Post-War Capital of Culture, 1945-1965, Hardback Book

New York Mid-Century: Post-War Capital of Culture, 1945-1965 Hardback


New York Mid Century is the story of how the Big Apple emerged as the cultural capital of the postwar world in all fields of creative endeavour art, architecture, design, music, theatre and dance.

It was a period of intense cross-fertilization, as poets and critics mixed with artists, dealers, musicians, designers, architects, dancers, and choreographers.

Richly illustrated with hundreds of paintings, drawings, photographs, elevations, plans, posters, programmes and ephemera, this is a stirring evocation of a remarkably fertile period in the city's history, the styles and aesthetics of which are now very much back in vogue.
