Ellsworth Kelly is the definitive monograph of this pioneer of abstract art and one of the most distinctive and influential artists of our time.
Made in close collaboration with the artist, this is his first monograph since 1971. It features all of his major works and periods, from his early figurative art to the iconic monochromatic paintings for which he has become best known; from his prints and drawings to his large-scale outdoor sculptures and commissions for architecture.
Ellsworth Kelly includes a compelling survey text by Kelly expert Tricia Y. Paik that draws on in-depth interviews with the artist; images from his personal archive; and artworks by other artists who have inspired him.
The main text is punctuated with shorter essays by four leading writers and curators and contains 150 colour plates. Ellsworth Kelly features an illustrated narrative chronology mapping Kelly's life and work over nine decades.
