In The Art of Albert Paley critic and art historian Edward Lucie-Smith assesses the work of this contemporary American artist from 1963 – 1996. "There was a sort of battle going on between the major and the minor arts," recalls Paley of his 1960s arts education. "It seemed to us that creativity alone should be the supreme consideration. We wanted to elevate what was seen as a minor endeavor and make it a major artistic statement."
