Reviews

"As a journal of record, the volume fills in innumerable lacunae. The post-war New York art scene has dominated the text books for far too long; this necessary resource redresses the balance with authority, wit and academic rigour, convincing the reader that it is indeed time for this history to be set down."--"The Art Newspaper"

"The book is heavy on gorgeous reproductions of iconic L.A. artwork, and, ambitious in scale and scope, represents a significant effort and achievement."--"Publishers Weekly "

"It is, to date, the most comprehensive effort to document L.A.'s emergence as a major locus of important art creation and presents an irresistibly rich panorama."--"Library Journal", starred review

"With informative, insightful chapters, this book is an excellent addition to the developing history of 20th-century art in the U.S. Highly recommended."--"Choice "

"As "Pacific Standard Time" amply documents, L.A. had its share of epochal moments during the three and a half decades following the end of World War II."--Peter Plagens, "Los Angeles Review of Books"
