       Conclusion : "how to look at modern art in America" 
520    "'What if we ascribe significance to aesthetic and social 
       divergences rather than waving them aside as anomalous? 
       What if we look closely at what does not appear central, 
       or appears peripherally, or does not appear at all, 
       viewing ellipses, outliers, absences, and outtakes as 
       significant?' Eccentric Modernisms places queer demands on
       art history, tracing the relational networks connecting 
       cosmopolitan eccentrics who cultivated discrepant strains 
       of modernism in America during the 1930s and 1940s. 
       Building on the author's earlier studies of Gertrude Stein
       and other lesbians who participated in transatlantic 
       cultural exchanges between the world wars, this book moves
       in a different direction, focusing primarily on the gay 
       men who formed Stein's support network and whose careers, 
       in turn, she helped to launch, including the neo-romantic 
       painters Pavel Tchelitchew and writer/editor Charles Henri
       Ford. Eccentric Modernisms shows how these 'eccentric 
       modernists' bucked trends by working collectively, 
       reveling in disciplinary promiscuity, and sustaining 
       creative affiliations across national and cultural 
       boundaries"--Provided by publisher
