JOSEPH STELLA. Barbara Haskell. Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 1994. Distributed by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 280 pp. with 219 ills. (97 col.). 31 x 23 cm. LC 93-43033 ISBN 0810968134 In English.
A significant review of Stella's individualistic oeuvre, this catalogue features full-page reproductions of 52 paintings and an equal number of works on paper produced by the Italian-born American modernist (1877-1946) from 1907 to 1944, including a selection of his famous Futurist-influenced studies of the Brooklyn Bridge and other urban subjects as well as portraits, religious images, semi-abstract renderings of exotic plants and animals, and visionary floral landscapes. Augmented by a substantial anthology of Stella's writings, a lengthy text closely examines the artist's career and stylistic development, discussing the metaphorical and spiritual dimensions of his work from his early dynamic portrayals of the modern city through his adaptation of Renaissance artistic models to depict an idealized world of nature.
