OP FRANZ KLINE: ART AND THE STRUCTURE OF IDENTITY. Fundacio Antoni Tapies, Barcelona, 1994. Published in association with Electa Espana, Madrid. 214 pp. with 90 ills. (69 col.). 32 x 25 cm. ISBN 848156026X In English.
A major review of the oeuvre of celebrated American Abstract Expressionist Kline (1910-1962), this catalogue features excellent full-page reproductions of 69 paintings and works on paper produced by the artist from 1947 to 1961, the selection encompassing many of his distinctive black-on-white calligraphic abstractions as well as examples of the polychromatic canvases that dominated his late work. A biographical text and an essay that rigorously reexamines Kline's achievements while challenging conventional critical assessments of the New York art world of the 1950s are supplemented by a discussion of the involvement of poets such as John Ashbery and Frank O'Hara with the Abstract Expressionist group, an interview with three of Kline's New York School associates, and an extensive bibliography incorporating excerpts from commentaries on his work.
