Maldonado, Guitemie. NICOLAS DE STAËL. 320 pages, including 320 color plates. Folio, boards, slipcase. Paris, Citadelle et Mazenod, 2015.
This lush, oversized publication (11" x 16") pays hommage to the French artist de Staël, who died in 1955 at the age of 41. The quality of the images is superb; most of the paintings were photographed specifically for this book, and there are numerous close-ups of the textured surface of his canvas. The color reproductions are vibrant and pop off the page. Text in French.
