Dan Flavin: Drawing
With texts by Tiffany Bell, Isabelle Dervaux,Â and Jennifer Raab
This publication documents the first retrospective of the artistâ€™s drawings, which was held at The Morgan Library & Museum, New York, in 2012 (it then traveled to the Kunsthalle Bielefeld, Germany, in 2012-2013). The catalogue explores the central role that drawing played in Flavinâ€™s practice, and includes essays by exhibition curator Isabelle Dervaux, noted Flavin scholar Tiffany Bell, and art historian Jennifer Raab. Excerpts from Flavinâ€™s journal, in which he writes about his relationship to drawing, are published here for the first time. This richly illustrated catalogue features over 190 plates, including selections from the artistâ€™s personal collection of nineteenth-century Japanese drawings, Hudson River School landscape studies, and drawings by other twentieth-century artists, from Piet Mondrian to Donald Judd.
