Riassunto: From one of today’s most revered artists, this exquisite volume explores a critical facet of Ellsworth Kelly’s development as an abstractionist. Since the 1940s Ellsworth Kelly has developed a unique vocabulary of abstraction based on the observation of nature and the world around him. This book brings to light a key moment in Kelly’s artistic evolution, featuring gorgeous reproductions of works on paper in a variety of media, including ink, graphite, oil paint, and collage. Made in the years after Kelly returned to New York from Paris, where he lived after World War II studying on the GI Bill, these works are modest in scale, with no dimension larger than 20 inches. Yet these are crucial pieces that further the innovative visual vocabulary Kelly began to develop during his years in France. Kelly has returned to these drawings repeatedly, transforming them into large-scale paintings and sculptures―even as recently as 2013, on the cusp of his 90th birthday. Richard Shiff’s penetrating essay places these works in the context of Kelly’s groundbreaking oeuvre, offering perceptive insights into the artist’s technique, vision, and place in the pantheon of modern masters.
About the Author: Richard Shiff holds the Effie Marie Cain Regents Chair in Art and directs the Center for the Study of Modernism at the University of Texas at Austin. He is the author of numerous books.

Descrizione libro Matthew Marks Gallery, 2014. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. Condizione sovraccoperta: New. In this groundbreaking new study, Richard Shiff argues that Ellsworth Kelly's return to New York in 1954 initiated an important shift in the artist's work: a move from systematic to nonsystematic chance (a "chancier kind of chance," in the author's words). During the ensuing eight years, the visual vocabulary Kelly had begun developing in France — incidental compositions observed in bridges, windows, discarded envelopes — cohered in an important body of works on paper. Shiff's examination of these works yields new insights into the artist's oeuvre as a whole, an oeuvre that, to date, comprises nearly seven decades of drawings, paintings, prints, and sculptures. As Shiff explains, Kelly's vision is "a kind of intuition, a glimpse of what lies beyond habit and conditioning." Each of these artworks, by transmitting this vision, also transfer's Kelly's intuition, communicating his momentary sensations while still preserving their immediacy. In the intervening decades, Kelly has returned to these drawings repeatedly, transforming many of them into large-scale paintings and sculptures — even as recently as 2013, on the cusp of his ninetieth birthday. Although they originate in chance, chance alone can't make art; so where do these works come from? Kelly has described his process as "translating" rather than making. Perhaps this is why he stands alone in the history of modern art, uncategorizable and without parallel. "Kelly is one of a kind without trying to be," Shiff explains, "without resorting to the cultural signs of one-of-a-kind-ness."
