Ratcliff, Carter, with an essay by John B. Ravenal. DONALD SULTAN: The Theater of the Object. 272 pages, beautifully illustrated throughout in color. Large 4to, cloth. New York, Vendome Press, 2008.
"What is it that art gives to us? Art transfers the unknown to the known without losing the spirit in the transfer. The object radiates the history of art and transfers it again back to the eye of the viewer. This is not a trick, but a dialogue with the spirit and the intellect. We choose our medium. And this is the theatre of the object". (From a commencement address given by Sultan in 2007). This beautifully produced volume documents Sultan's distinguished 30 year career.
