Book Brings Together Murals in New York City

Murals of New York City: The Best of New York’s Public Paintings from Bemelmans to Parrish is the first book to curate over thirty of the most important and influential murals located within New York City. Spanning over 100 years, the volume includes full-color images of works by Marc Chagall, Roy Lichtenstein, Maxfield Parrish and more.

From New Deal-era works to graffiti-influenced paintings, Murals of New York City explores the background of each masterpiece and the story behind those who commissioned and created the murals. Along with original photography, the book contains addresses and historical information on each mural, artist and location, including the circumstances in which they were created, restored and preserved.

Murals of New York City by Glenn Palmer-Smith will be available on October 8, 2013 from Rizzoli New York.
