Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Including and augmenting the exhibition catalogue on Dan Flavins art (see opposite page), this remarkable book features a complete catalogue of over 750 of the artists light works. Presenting all of Flavins lights together for the first time, this is the only publication to document the artists entire career. Flavins art has not been widely reproduced, and this definitive volume includes hundreds of images—featuring exquisite new photography—of well-known pieces as well as many rarely seen and unknown works. Each light work is illustrated by a beautiful color reproduction and/or a graphic diagram. Comprehensive information on each work, including title, date, medium, dimensions, edition, exhibition history, bibliography, and a brief discussion, reveals new insights into the artists working methods and provides an invaluable resource for students, scholars, dealers, and collectors.
