Description - Richard Anuskiewicz by David Madden
Richard Anuszkiewicz is now considered America's 'foremost colourist and geometric abstractionist'. In this lavishly illustrated catalogue, David Madden and Nicholas Spike document the chronology, series, provenance, publications and exhibitions of the artist's more than 1,000 paintings and sculptures in museums and private collections. Prepared in collaboration with Richard and Sally Anuszkiewicz and using the artist's personal archive, this comprehensive book is a fundamental resource on this major artistic personality and on post-war geometric abstraction in general. Among the artists referenced are Josef Albers, Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Stella and Sol Lewitt. In the introductory essay, John T. Spike covers the artist's formative studies with Josef Albers at Yale, his discovery by Alfred Barnes, Jr. and the Museum of Modern Art, and his status in the early Sixties as the 'New Wizard of Op'. The essay proceeds through the Sidney Janis years, and the development of such signature series such as the Temples and Centered Squares in the 1980s and his Translumina sculptures in the 1990s.
