Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This catalogue documents the current exhibition held at the National Gallery in Washington of one of the best private collections of post-war art: the Robert and Jane Meyerhoff Collection. Since 1958, this Maryland couple has amassed some of the best examples of works by such masters as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Jean Dubuffet, Clyfford Still, Philip Guston, Brice Marden etc, all of which are destined to be on permanent display in the museum, thanks to the generosity of their owners.

The book starts with an essay by curator Harry Cooper, studying the works by dividing them into various themes such as "Scrape" (Dubuffet, De Kooning...), "Concentricity" (Albers, Noland...), "Line" (Marden...), "Gesture" (Kelly, Stella...), etc. The magnificent color plates that follow are arranged according to this same classification, which can sometimes seem too arbitrary, if not confusing (a work by Brice Marden appears in the chapter "Line", but might as well have been classified in "Gesture", and this is just one example).

Now, in spite of this debatable choice by the author of the somewhat pedantic introductory essay, this book is worth it because of its marvelous illustrations (and the quality of the paper used).
