More than 15 years after Italian artist Alighiero Boetti's death, 2011 marks the opening of a major international retrospective of the work of the Arte Povera master, sponsored by MoMA NY, the Tate Modern and Madrid's Reina Sofia. Adding to the new appreciation of Boetti's joyous work is this dazzling, multi-layered photo essay on the unseen story behind the making of his seminal arazzi (embroidered works). For the first time, the international web of artisans who made the arazzi comes into focus, through the work of American photographer Randi Malkin Steinberger.
Uncompromising and remarkably innovative, Bridget Riley is one of the most respected artists working today. This comprehensive survey of Riley's 40-year career, published to accompany a major exhibition at Tate Britain, London, includes key examples in lush color-plates of all phases of her work.
For 50 years Bridget Riley has been regarded as one of Britain's most important abstract artists, renowned for large paintings that feature complex, repetitive geometric shapes and undulating linear patterns. It is fascinating to discover that she sees her decidedly modern paintings as following in an Old Master pictorial tradition. This affinity stems from a lifelong passion for paintings in the National Gallery, London, with which she was first associated as a young student, and later as a Trustee and exhibiting artist.
This book celebrates the artist's long engagement with the National Gallery.
