AD REINHARDT AND COLOR by Margit Rowell
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1980, First edition, 72 pp., 8 1/2" X 10", Softcover
Exploring Ad Reinhardt’s influences and his obsession with color, this catalogue written by Margit Rowell presents Reinhardt as a “classical painter” striving towards, in the artist’s words, “the last paintings anyone can paint.” In addition to Rowell’s essay, this catalogue displays images of Reinhardt’s works in both color and black and white. The color images demonstrate the subtle modulations of hue that are typical of Reinhardt’s work. The catalogue also provides a selected bibliography and a list of selected exhibitions.
