ARMAN, 1955-1991: A RETROSPECTIVE. Alison de Lima Greene and Pierre Restany. Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1991. 144 pp. with 98 ills. (61 col.). 29 x 23 cm. LC 91-32597 ISBN 0890900523 In English.
Featuring full-page reproductions of 70 works ranging from sculptural objects composed of garbage embedded in plastic to reliefs variously formed from masses of pliers, broken musical instruments, tubes of paint, nails, clock hands and diverse found objects, this catalogue provides a thorough review of the singular oeuvre of French-American assemblage artist Arman (b. 1928). Two critical essays discuss Arman's involvement in the Nouveaux Realistes group in 1960s Paris, the principles of accumulation and deconstruction that have informed all of his work, and his links to Dada, Pop art and Abstract Expressionism.
