CARMEN HERRERA. Dana Miller. Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 2016. Distributed by Yale University Press, New Haven. 232 pp. with 140 ills. (125 col.). 32 x 27 cm. ISBN 9780300221862 In English.
Publisher's description: Cuban-born artist Carmen Herrera (b. 1915) has painted for more than seven decades, though it is only over the past 12 years that acclaim for her work has catapulted the artist to international prominence. This handsome volume offers the first comprehensive look at her life and career, which spans the art worlds of Cuba, Paris, and New York. Essays situate her work in the context of Latin American avant-garde art and also examine the artist's early studies in Cuba, her involvement with the Salon des Realites Nouvelles in Paris, and her groundbreaking New York output. An essay by Dana Miller places Herrera within the context of Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism, and notes her relationships with important midcentury artists such as Barnett Newman. Personal family photographs from Herrera's archive enrich the narrative, and a chronology addressing the entirety of her career features additional documentary images. Over 80 works are illustrated, including many published here for the first time.
