From Library Journal: 
Many of the familiar images of artists and intellectuals living in this country following World War II are the work of German-born American photographer Hans Namuth (1915-90). The Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery is currently displaying its collection of 75 of Namuth's photographs. Although his work has appeared in magazines, books, and documentary films, little is known about him. Carr, the National Portrait Gallery's deputy director and organizer of the exhibition, has written the most comprehensive biographical study to date for this accompanying catalog. In 1950, Namuth took over 500 stills of Jackson Pollock working in his studio, which he described in Pollock Painting (LJ 3/15/81), and launched a career filming the "essence" of artistic creativity. Namuth's intimate, straightforward portraits chronicle the working techniques of such legendary figures as Frank Lloyd Wright, Walter Gropius, John Steinbeck, Edward Hopper, Andrew Wyeth, Louise Nevelson, Stephen Sondheim, and, most notably, the Abstract Expressionists. Recommended as a record of America's cultural achievements in the 20th century.AJoan Levin, MLS, Chicago
