Morning: Chapter 30
R. H. Quaytmans paintings are celebrated for their sumptuous beauty, complexity, and rigor. This book, the first museum publication to provide a critical overview of Quaytmans work to date, includes new essays that contextualize her practice and examine the evolution of her chosen themes. Illustrated with the artist’s extensive archive of Polaroids, on which her work is based, the book focuses on the artists process of formatting her paintings onto wood panels, organizing them into exhibitions that she refers to as chapters, and her works site-specific nature, created in dialogue with each exhibition venues historical, architectural, or social aspects. This book presents a remarkable oeuvre that simultaneously provides opportunities for visual pleasure and scholarly inquiry.
