Dan Flavin : Drawing

description

Exhibition catalogue published in conjunction with show held February 17 - July 1, 2012. Traveled to Kunsthalle Bielefeld, Bielefeld, Germany, December 16, 2012 - March 3, 2013. Texts by Isabelle Dervaux, Tiffany Bell, Jennifer Raad, and Dan Flavin. "Although Minimalist artist Dan Flavin (1933 - 1996) is best known for his brightly colored installations of fluorescent lights, he was also an avid draftsman. Not only did he produce numerous sketches for his light installations, he also regularly drew from nature, like a traditional landscape painter. Published in conjunction with the first museum retrospective of Flavin's drawings, this richly illustrated publication explores the central role drawing played in his art. Extensive excerpts from the artist's journal, in which he wrote about his passion for drawing, are published here for the first time. In addition, Flavin's interest in the medium is illustrated with selections from his personal collection of nineteenth-century Japanese Drawings, Hudson River school landscape studies, and drawings by twentieth-century artists, from Piet Mondrian to Donald Judd." -- publisher's statement.
