Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Len Lye: A Biography tells for the first time the story of a unique, charismatic artist who was an innovator in many areas--film, kinetic sculpture, painting, photography, and poetry. Born in New Zealand in 1901, Len Lye gained an international reputation in the arts and had friendships with many famous people, including Dylan Thomas, Robert Graves, Gertrude Stein, John Grierson, Norman McLaren, Oskar Fischinger, John Cage, Robert Creeley, Laura Riding, Stan Brakhage, and the artists of the New York School. A colorful bohemian, Lye lived in London from 1926 to 1944 (where he made highly original hand-painted films for John Grierson's GPO Film Unit), then moved to New York for the last 36 years of his life.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 392-429) and index.
