Colaizzi, Vittorio. ROBERT RYMAN. 344 pages with 260 color and b&w plates. 4to, cloth. New York, Phaidon, 2017.
A much-revered figure in the art world, Robert Ryman has, over six decades, continuously and methodically experimented with the different possibilities inherent within a painting - abolishing color in order to focus on material, brushstroke, support, and scale. This, the most comprehensive monograph covering his career to date, places his famous square 'white' paintings with lesser-known but increasingly exhibited works, in order to show that he is not a reductionist, but in fact a restless experimenter.
