Robert Ryman


The only comprehensive monograph on the artist whose abstract 'white' paintings have inspired generations


Vittorio Colaizzi


Editions:

Price: USD$150.00

The only comprehensive monograph on the artist whose abstract 'white' paintings have inspired generations.

A much-revered figure in the art world, Robert Ryman has, over six decades, continuously and methodically experimented with the different possibilities inherent within a painting - abolishing colour in order to focus on material, brushstroke, support, and scale. This, the only comprehensive monograph covering his career to date, places his famous square 'white' paintings with lesser-known but increasingly exhibited works, in order to show that he is not a reductionist, but in fact a restless experimenter.
