Ellsworth Kelly, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 1
Written by Kelly scholar Yve-Alain Bois in direct collaboration with the artist
This comprehensive multivolume publication contains exhaustive documentation of each of Kelly’s paintings, sculptures, and reliefs. The catalogue includes thorough and insightful texts, high-quality images of individual works, and preparatory drawings, along with provenance information, exhibition history, and biblio- graphic information, creating what is sure to be an irreplaceable reference tool for institutions, collectors, and admirers.
This first volume is a stunning beginning to this extensive publication, with the subsequent volumes scheduled for release over the next several years. encompassing Kelly’s work up to his return to the United States from France in 1954, the present volume covers the artist’s formative years as a student at the school of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and as a young artist living in Paris, where he began painting the abstract forms that would later de- ne his career.
