Robert Storr is a critic, curator and artist. From 1990 to 2002, he was Curator and then Senior Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

I would like to thank Rob Storr, Dean of the Yale University School of Art, who I think was the fourth busiest person in NYC when the catalogue essay was needed. He met the deadline with prose that is both poetic and insightful. I would like to thank Meryl Cohen, Director of Registration and Art Services at the Solomon R. Gugenheim Museum, my wife, for her unquestioning patience and angelic patience. Also, thank you to Tom Greisel who photographed the images for the catalogue in a desperately limited space. Also, thanks to Pete Omslor at the Museum of Modern Art.
