Dawsey, Jill. NIKI DE SAINT PHALLE in the 1960s. 248 pages with 135 color and b&w plates. 4to, boards. New Haven, Yale University Press, 2021.
This volume is a focused look at two bodies of work, the Tirs ("shooting paintings") and Nanas ("dames"), in the experimental 1960s practice of the French-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002). A poetic response and four essays highlight the artist's transatlantic projects and collaborations. A chronology with photo-documentation and known participants details for the first time all Tirs shooting events in Europe and the United States, and another timeline recaps Saint Phalle's life in the 1960s.
