Summary note:
  • The only comprehensive monograph on the artist whose abstract \u0027white\u0027 paintings have inspired generations. A much-revered figure in the art world, Robert Ryman has, over six decades, continuously and methodically experimented with the different possibilities inherent within a painting -- abolishing colour in order to focus on material, brushstroke, support, and scale. This, the only comprehensive monograph covering his career to date, places his famous square \u0027white\u0027 paintings with lesser-known but increasingly exhibited works, in order to show that he is not a reductionist, but in fact a restless experimenter.
