Steven Naifeh

Steven Naifeh (born June 19, 1952) is a Pulitzer Prize-winning American biographer of both Jackson Pollock and Vincent van Gogh. In addition to writing 18 books with Gregory White Smith, Naifeh is a businessman who founded several companies, including Best Lawyers that spawned an industry of professional rankings.

He is also an artist whose geometric abstractions, many large in scale, have been exhibited widely throughout the world over a period of 45 years.

''Jackson Pollock: An American Saga'' was published on December 24, 1989. ''The Philadelphia Inquirer'' called the book "Brilliant and definitive … so absorbing in its narrative drive and so exhaustively detailed that it makes everything that came before seem like trial balloons." ''Van Gogh: The Life'', which Michiko Kakutani of ''The New York Times'' called "magisterial," was published in 2011 with a companion website hosting over 6,000 pages of notes.

His co-author, partner, and husband, Gregory White Smith, died in 2014 at the age of 62, having lived with a rare brain tumor for four decades. Provided by Wikipedia
