DONALD SULTAN: THE DISASTER PAINTINGS. Ed. by Alison Hearst. Lowe Art Museum, Coral Gables, 2016. Published in association with DelMonico Books, Prestel Publishing, New York. 152 pp. with 70 col. ills. 29 x 26 cm. ISBN 9783791355740 In English.
Publisher's description: Working at the intersection of abstraction and realism, Donald Sultan has created a unique painting technique that defies categorization. This multifaceted consideration of Sultan's Disaster Paintings includes an expansive critical essay that situates the series within the tradition of landscape painting and draws connections to the Italian Arte Povera movement of the 1960s. The book also features an in-depth conversation between the author and Sultan, a poetic response to the work by his longtime collaborator Max Blagg, and numerous illustrations of the works along with archival drawings and photographs. The book provides readers with a deep understanding of the underlying themes of Sultan's iconic series, his elaborate technique, and the catastrophic events that inspired the paintings.
