"During the 1950s a few painters in the San Francisco Bay Area began to stage personal, dramatic defections from the prevailing style of Abstract Expressionism, creating what would come to be known as Bay Area Figurative Art. This study of the movement as a whole offers an account of the careers and interactions of ten Bay Area artists."
