The realist paintings of New York-based artist Stone Roberts resemble those of the Old Masters, yet his art is unmistakably contemporary. While his exquisitely detailed canvases -- primarily still lifes and figural scenes -- exhibit a wealth of narrative complexity and subtlety, it is his ability to inject into his work a mystery and commentary on modern society that sets him apart from other artists of his generation. This expanded hardcover edition of Abrams' 1993 paperback has been updated to include the past seven years, during which Roberts's output has nearly doubled, he has had a highly successful one-man gallery show, and his work has enjoyed increasing attention and acclaim.

This new edition -- with 31 new colorplates -- includes cultural critic Charles Michener's original essay on the individual works and on Roberts's peculiarly American sensibility. New commentary on the artist's recent paintings is provided by the noted writer Verlyn Klinkenborg.
