about

The only comprehensive monograph on the artist whose abstract 'white' paintings have inspired generations.

A much-revered figure in the art world, Robert Ryman has, over six decades, continuously and methodically experimented with the different possibilities inherent within a painting - abolishing colour in order to focus on material, brushstroke, support, and scale. This, the only comprehensive monograph covering his career to date, places his famous square 'white' paintings with lesser-known but increasingly exhibited works, in order to show that he is not a reductionist, but in fact a restless experimenter.

Editorial Reviews

"Vittorio Colaizzi?s new tome on Robert Ryman... is a thing of beauty, filled with pristine reproductions of Ryman works."—Andrew Russeth, Executive Editor, ARTnews"This is the first ever monograph on the ground-breaking conceptual/minimalist artist Robert Ryman... This volume, edited by Vittorio Colaizzi, is both art historical and narrative in its approach, exploring the artist through his works and words, interviews and musings. Owning the book, with its embossed cloth cover, is almost like having your own Ryman painting." —elephant.art"Ryman's exploration, documented in this monograph, is proof that restraint?not necessity?is the mother of all invention. The result? A riveting range of variations on a theme." —Domino Online
