The first volume of the collected writings on art by renowned American art critic and curator Robert Storr, edited by Francesca Pietropaolo.
Following on from the much-lauded Interviews on Art, HENI presents the first in a two-volume publication featuring the collected writings on art by Robert Storr, one of the world's leading art critics and curators.
Featuring the best of Storr's criticism, reviews, essays and other writings from the 1980s to the mid 2000s, the book includes his essays on artists such as Eva Hesse, Martin Puryear, Eric Fischl, Arshile Gorky, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Bruce Nauman and Adrian Piper. Written with his signature intellect and wit, his writings range from essays on gender in the work of Louise Bourgeois to reviews of Art Spiegelman's comic strip memoir Maus.
Expertly curated from his prolific output, and illustrated with 161 images to accompany the texts, Writings on Art is the definitive collection of Storr's multi-faceted writing -- a must-read for curators and students, artists, exhibition-goers and all those interested in the art and culture of today.
