George Antheil was an American avant-garde composer, pianist, author and inventor whose modernist musical compositions explored the modern sounds – musical, industrial, mechanical – of the early 20th century. This minimalist, beautifully designed picture book tells of the premier of one of Antheil’s most famous works. Robert Lockwood lives and works in Maine. He studied painting and design at the Philadelphia College of Art, and painting, drawing, and classical guitar in Madrid, Spain. He received a BFA and MFA at the Tyler School of Art, Temple University. He taught drawing and design at the Philadelphia College of Art and has shown his paintings and drawings at the former Marian Locks Gallery in Philadelphia and the O.K. Harris Hundred Acres Gallery in New York City. His work is in several museum and private collections.
