Thomas Crow is the Rosalie Solow Professor of Modern Art and Associate Provost for the Arts at New York University. He has authored two influential studies of eighteenth-century French painting while subsequent publications, including The Rise of the Sixties: American and European Art in the Era of Dissent and the essay collection Modern Art in the Common Culture (both 1996), examine the later twentieth century, and The Intelligence of Art (1999) analyzes specific moments in the history of art. Crow’s most recent texts focus on single artists including Gordon Matta-Clark (2003), Robert Smithson (2004), Robert Rauschenberg (2005), Ed Ruscha (2008), Bob Dylan and Harry Smith (both 2009), and Roy Lichtenstein and Damien Hirst (both 2010).
