Robert Ryman: Critical Texts Since 1967
Through an extremely restricted vocabulary, Robert Ryman became a leading figure on the fringes of Minimalist and Conceptual art. This anthology of essays reviews and charts the evolution of the artist's critical reception. A comprehensive selection of over 60 essays and exhibition reviews has been collated into one volume, including texts by some of the most influential art historians, art critics, and cultural commentators, like Lucy Lippard, Dan Cameron, Ernesto Pujol, and Robert Storr. The writers look at Ryman's work within the context of the 'challenge to painting' during the 1960s, the artist's work in relation to other influential painters in art history, and contemporary cultural trends. Drawing upon the words of key contemporary thinkers, an introduction by Vittorio Colaizzi explores the importance of elements of 'support, color, brushstroke' in Ryman's paintings. [Amazon.com]
