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.
