Frank Moore’s remarkable artistry was cut short by AIDS. Moore (1953-2002) is best known for large, highly detailed figurative paintings filled with fantastic and symbolic images. This catalogue includes a complete bibliography, chronology and excerpts from Moore's own writings. It also features more than 50 color artwork reproductions and 40 reproductions of sketchbooks and documents selected from the Frank Moore Papers at New York University's Fales Library. Klaus Kertess’s essay considers Moore's recurrent themes, situating the artist within New York City’s vibrant downtown scene; AICA-USA board member Susan Harris addresses the artist's working methods.

Headquartered in New York, AICA-USA's membership comprises over 400 critics, curators, scholars, and art historians working throughout the United States.
