ELLSWORTH KELLY: THE YEARS IN FRANCE, 1948-1954. Yve-Alain Bois et al. National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., 1992. Organized in association with Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume, Paris. Published in association with Prestel-Verlag, Munich. 208 pp. with 222 ills. (106 col.). 31 x 27 cm. LC 92-15853 ISBN 3791311891 In English.
Provides an extensive examination of a pivotal stage in the career of renowned American artist Kelly (b. 1923), featuring excellent full-page reproductions of 95 paintings and relief constructions produced during his sojourn in France, including Picassoesque portraits and figure studies, schematic line abstractions, and hard-edge grid compositions of brightly colored panels. Supplemented with a detailed chronology of Kelly's activities in France, three critical essays analyze the formation of the artist's distinctive style, his experiments with "chance" modular grid formats, and his use of photography to record shadow patterns and architectural motifs.
