This elegant and distinguished book showcases the unique and mesmerizing art of mid-century American artist, Gray Foy. Long eclipsed from public and private view, this large cache of drawings was discovered after Foy's death, mostly hidden in drawers and closets. The five-year effort to prepare the astonishing discovery for publication culminates in this stunning volume of drawings whose rare beauty will appeal to cognoscenti and general readers alike. Born in 1922 in Dallas, Foy spent his youth in Los Angeles and went on to study art at Southern Methodist University in Texas and Columbia University in New York. His drawings appeared in numerous group exhibitions (including several Whitney Annuals), and he received a Guggenheim Fellowship. Foy's drawings are executed with a draftsmanship whose meticulously detailed qualities challenge the viewer's visual acuity. His early work, related to both Magic Realism and Surrealism, conveys affinities with artists as varied as Salvador Dali and M.C. Escher, and is characterized by complexly interwoven compositions in which human figures, flora and fauna, and terrains and interiors morph into vivid dreamscapes. His mature drawings focus on botanical and geological forms in the process of transformation, metaphorically suggestive of the passage of time and the mutability of perception. There has been renewed interest in Gray Foy's art as a result of a 2004 article in the New York Times by Steve Martin about the artist and his 1942 masterpiece, Dimensions, which Martin acquired and donated to the Museum of Modern Art. Now for the first time, Gray Foy's work has been collected in Gray Foy: Drawings 1941-1975, which includes sixty-one full-color plates, an exhaustive chronology, and a selection of Foy's commercial illustrations for book jackets, magazines, and record album covers.

At some point today you will have to influence or persuade someone - perhaps ask a colleague a favour, negotiate with a contractor or get your spouse to put out the recycling. In The small BIG, three heavyweights from the world of persuasion science and practice - Steve Martin, Noah Goldstein and Robert Cialdini - describe how, in today's information-overloaded world, it is now the smallest changes that lead to the biggest differences in results.
Offering deceptively simple suggestions and explaining the extensive scientific research behind them, the small BIG presents over fifty small changes - from the little adjustments that make meetings more effective to the costless alteration to correspondence that saved a government millions.
the small BIG is full of surprising, powerful - and above all, tiny - changes that could mean the difference between failure and success.
Since its publication in 2007, Yes! has shown how small changes can make a big difference to everyone's powers of persuasion - both at work and at home.
Every day, we face the challenge of persuading others to do what we want. But what makes people say 'yes' to our requests? Based on decades of research into the psychology of persuasion, this book reveals many remarkable insights that will help you be more persuasive both at work and at home.
Co-written by the world's most quoted expert on influence, Professor Robert Cialdini, Yes! contains dozens of tips that you wouldn't want to miss out on - all of them scientifically proven to boost your powers of persuasion.
This special tenth Anniversary edition features ten new chapters of updated research and fresh secrets of persuasion.

Whether you want someone to promote you, take their medicine, reduce their carbon footprint or even give you their vote, Yes! shows how small changes in your approach can have a dramatic effect on your success.
Most of us are only too aware that, whatever roles we have in today's fast-moving world, much of our success lies in getting others to say 'Yes' to our requests. What many people might not be aware of, though, is the vast amount of research that has been conducted on the influence process. What factors cause one person to say 'Yes' to the request of another? Yes! is full of practical tips based on recent academic research that shows how the psychology of persuasion can provide valuable insights for anyone interested in improving their ability to persuade others - whether in the workplace, at home or even on the internet. It combines the counter-intuition of Freakonomics with the popularising of Does Anything Eats Wasps? For each mini-chapter contains a mystery which is solved in a way that provides food for thought for anyone looking to be more persuasive, and for anyone interested in how the world works.
This is a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the making of a post-war masterpiece and its restoration. In many ways, Mural, Jackson Pollock's (1912-1956) first large-scale painting represents the birth of his legend. The controversial artist's creation of this painting has been recounted in dozens of books and dramatized in the Oscar-winning Pollock. Rumours about its creation abound - such as it being painted in one alcohol-fuelled night and at first didn't fit the intended space. But never in doubt was that it was pivotal, not only for Pollock but for the Abstract Expressionists who would follow his radical conception of art - "no limits, just edges." Mural, painted in 1943, was Pollock's first major commission. It was made for the entrance hall of the Manhattan duplex of Peggy Guggenheim who donated it to the University of Iowa in the 1950s where it stayed until its 2012 arrival for conservation and study at the Getty Center. This book unveils the findings of that examination providing a more complete picture of Pollock's process than ever before and includes an essay by eminent Pollock scholar Ellen Landau and an introduction by comedian Steve Martin.
