Two major American
artists from the second half of the 20th century are
highlighting our fall list. Both of them gained early
recognition in Europe and only late in their careers were they
discovered in the US.
Cy Twombly is one of
them, the other one is Ronald B. Kitaj. We are proud to announce
that with Volume 8, covering the years 1990 to 2011, the
publication of the Cy Twombly: Catalogue Raisonné of Drawings
will be completed in June. Two boxes containing four volumes
each will carry these graphic treasures into American bookstores
and libraries. Cy Twombly’s œuvre of over 60 years is an
artistic sensation. It appeals to both visually and literary
So does Ronald B.
Kitaj’s illustrated autobiography entitled Confessions of an
Old Jewish Painter.
Up until now unpublished
and found only recently in his estate, it is a breathtaking read
and unique in the history of arts, comparable only to Benvenuto
Cellini’s autobiography, My Life, and Salvador Dalí’s
Secret Life of Salvador Dalí.
Thomas Struth’s expanded
jungle book New Pictures of Paradise will also be
available in fall, Stefan Gronert’s monograph on the
Düsseldorf School of Photography is available in a new
printing. And last but not least, August Rodin’s Erotic
Watercolors will be published on the occasion of the 100th
anniversary of the master’s death on November 17, 2017.
We wish you and your
clients a lot of success with our forthcoming fall titles.
