"This is volume IV of Improvisations. First conceived in 1950 from an idea by Julio de Diego, "Improvisations" has been accepted as a novel and original medium by advertisers in sympathy with the ideals of the Artists Equity Association*. The member-artists who illustrated this journal were in most cases selected by the advertisers from our membership list and were given complete freedom of expression. Each page was designed by the artist directly on the litho plate, thus making this a collection of original lithographs." (From the Editor).

Includes works by artists Milton Avery, Chaim Gross, Jack Levine, Reginald Marsh, and Marcel Vertès.

Texts include an introductory letter from AEA New York Chapter President, Henry Botkin, program notes, lists of directors, committee members, sponsors and patrons. Lithographs printed on a variety of colored stocks.

This edition is limited to 2000 copies of which this is number 1.

* Founded in March 1947, Artists Equity's original mission was to promote opportunities for artists and address business and economic issues affecting American artists.
