Robert Ryman

£40.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Light yellowing to fore-spine, minor scuffs to corners and small inscription from previous owner inside front cover, otherwise in good condition.
126 illustrations, including 81 plates in full color.

Robert Ryman is one of the foremost American abstract artists of his generation. He is known as the painter of white paintings ("white paint is my medium"), but this is in no sense limiting. His works explore a myriad of possibilities, and range from rich and succulent surfaces to equally beautiful but more coolly sensuous paintings, where edge, relief, ways of fastening to the wall,synthetic or natural materials, and delicate or
tough surfaces, are explored and juxtaposed. Ryman would like the viewer to enjoy "an experience of delight, and well-being, and rightness. It's like listening to music." Robert Storr, Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, has interviewed Ryman on a number of occasions over a period of several years. His stimulating essay provides an insightful account, augmented by new quotes from the artist, of the development of Ryman's work from the first paintings of the mid-1950s to the present
day. Storr shows how it has been convenient but erroneous to regard Ryman as a minimalist painter. Ryman refers to himself as a "realist"; rather than imitating something that already existsor relying on the conventions of picture-making,his art has its own reality.
Catalog entries for eighty-one works draw extensively on recent interviews with the artist,and all these works are illustrated in color; they range from small early collages to large recent paintings. A detailed chronology places Ryman's work in the context of his major contemporaries. Also included is a glossary of the terms for the principal materials Ryman uses to make his paintings and a bibliography. This publication has been produced toaccompany the major retrospective exhibitionorganized jointly by the Tate Gallery, London andThe Museum of Modern Art, New York, and also touring to the Museo Nacional Reina Sophia, Madrid, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art,
and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.
