This book contains over 150 paintings of George Tooker. The color reproductions capture the luminous quality of the artist's work in egg tempera, and his meticulous painting technique is described in detail through an intimate look into the artist's studio.

For more than forty-five years Tooker has painted haunting psychological landscapes exploring the human condition, all characterized by their use of symbolism, classical form, and masterful technique. His absorbing images both enchant and repel us in their forceful depiction of the complexities of our age while clearly demonstrating the artist's love of composition and human form. By Thomas H. Garver.
