'Richard Shiff's Between Sense and De Kooning is a tour de force. But of what precisely? It's a category of art writing for which there is no genre, like De Kooning famously said of Duchamp, he's a movement of one! This is not a survey or a biography but an extraordinarily deep conversation with the reader about what De Kooning painted and what he said about it. It is an absolutely unique and wonderful book.'- -- Jonathan Fineberg
