Anfan, David. FRANZ KLINE: Black & White 1950-1961. 120 pp., 66 color and 19 b&w illustrations. 4to, cloth. Houston, The Menil Collection, 1994.
This catalogue accompanies the first exhibition since Franz Kline's death in 1962 to focus solely on his black and white abstract painting of the 1950s. Exploring the work of what is recognized as his classic period, David Anfam traces the artist's development and innovations utilizing a black-and-white palette and establishes his influence on painters of his generation like Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock, and on the next generation of American artists, including Robert Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, and Brice Marden among others.
