The definitive monograph, created in close collaboration with the artist, a pioneer of abstract art, who influenced subsequent generations of artists such as Tauba Auerbach, Matt Connors and Alex Israel.
The only complete monograph to cover Kelly’s entire career from the 1940s to today.
Includes all of his major works and periods, from his early figurative art to his distinctive paintings featuring blocks of single, flat colours and silhouetted shapes; from his prints and drawings to his large scale outdoor sculptures.
A survey text and narrative chronology by Kelly expert Tricia Y Paik features new insights from the artist following in-depth interviews, as well as never-before-published images, sketches and other material from his personal archives.
Features additional short essays by leading art historians, curators and writers.
