OP THINKING IS FORM: THE DRAWINGS OF JOSEPH BEUYS. Ann Temkin and Bernice Rose. Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1993. Organized and published in association with Philadelphia Museum of Art. 280 pp. with 254 ills. (133 col.). 30 x 25 cm. LC 92-81535 ISBN 0876330898 In English.
A major study of the central role of drawing in the evolution of Beuys's seminal oeuvre, this substantial catalogue provides fine reproductions of more than 170 diverse works spanning the career of the renowned German artist (1921-1986), among them expressive early renderings of human and animal figures, gestural and geometric abstractions, Fluxus-related textual pieces from the 1960s, and several of the diagrammatic blackboard sketches produced by the artist in the 70s and 80s. Four extensive essays trace Beuys's emergence as a preeminent figure in postwar European art, analyze his conceptual approach to drawing as a process, and examine the humanistic themes and complex iconography reflected in the featured works.
