3 Golub, Leon; Lynne Warren, Lanny Silverman Leon Golub: Works Since 1947

From the Broad Art Foundation web page on the artist, "As a leader of Chicago's figurative movement in the 1950s, Leon Golub challenged the dominant styles of that time, Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. Described as an existential and activist painter, Golub's interest in the depiction of the figure never waned, and he has recently regained recognition for his large-scale, politically charged works that directly address issues of war, racism, sexism and power. Political terror and man's abuse of power are the primary subjects rendered in his monumental and highly topical paintings."

4 Madsen, Axel The Marshall Fields: The Evolution of an American Business Dynasty
John Wiley & Sons 0471024937 / 9780471024934 Hardcover New 
New unread hardcover in dust jacket. First Printing, with no marks or flaws. 384 pages.

FROM THE JACKET: "A classic American success story?with a twist. Like J. P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, and Andrew Carnegie, Marshall Field was one of the overlords of triumphant capitalism in the Gilded Age of the late nineteenth century. However, his phenomenal wealth and generous philanthropy masked a disastrous personal life. Deserted by his wife and alienated from his children, the founder of the Field dynasty left a legacy of immense wealth and misery to match. The Marshall Fields recounts the classic tale of Field's spectacular success as well as the tragic story of a man who, while making millions by knowing what women wanted, had no inkling of his own wife's emotional needs. This revealing account follows the next five generations of the Field family, concentrating on the most important and controversial figures in each generation. What emerges is a startling saga of money, madness, and mystery. From the son who may have been shot by a chorus girl to the great-great grandson who used his millions to create Hollywood fantasies, Field's descendants have caromed wildly between rebellion and folly. Their story offers a new and penetrating take on wealth, success, and the nightmare that often accompanies the American dream."
