Ellsworth Kelly. Catalogue Raisonné of Paintings, Reliefs, and Sculpture. Volume 1 1940-1953
Written by Kelly scholar Yve-Alain Bois in direct collaboration with the artist, this comprehensive multivolume publication contains exhaustive documentation of each of Kellys 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 bibliographic information, making it sure to be an irreplaceable reference tool for institutions, collectors, and admirers.\nThis first volume is a stunning beginning to this extensive publication, with the subsequent volumes scheduled for release over the next several years. Encompassing Kellys work up to his return to the United States from France in 1954, the present volume covers the artists 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 which would later define his career.
