Newman makes "environmental portraits" that refer by surroundings or design to the person's life or work oras in his demonic portrait of the German Arms manufacturer Kruppsoul. Ollman's introduction analyzes Newman's aesthetics. The photographs are arranged roughly chronologically; reproduction quality would please even master printer Newman. The book begins with early documentary work and collage photographs, and proceeds to the (indexed) portraits of painters, composers, architects, scientists, writers, political and religious leaders, and others that make up a gallery of familiar mid-20th century faces known best through Newman's portraits. The latest Shaker work and two-dimensional abstractions are included as well. This highly recommended book best shows Newman's development and range. Kathleen Collins, Library of Congress
