Marco Livingstone


Publisher:Phaidon Press Ltd

R. B. Kitaj (1932-2007) is recognized as a modern master whose powerful, controversial and highly personal paintings, pastels and drawings reflect his commitment to the human figure as a subject and his complex involvement with the art of the past, with political and social issues and with his own Jewish identity. Marco Livingstone's definitive and much-praised monograph on Kitaj, based on an extraordinary series of interviews and letters between the artist and the author, provides full documentation of Kitaj's life and work. The artist himself participated actively in the design of the book, and a series of articulate and revealing 'prefaces' to his own paintings are also included here. For this fourth and final edition, the author has written a new chapter surveying Kitaj's work from 1997 to 2007, an extremely productive period following the tragic death of his wife the artist Sandra Fisher and his return to the United States. This text is complemented by a new plate section illustrating 30 works from this final phase and 20 images of previously unillustrated earlier works, as well as 25 additional 'prefaces' written by the artist.The Bibliography has been updated and the Catalogue of Works completed, and finally many illustrations that were black and white in earlier editions are now reproduced in full colour. As the definitive monograph on one of art's modern masters, this authoritative monograph is indispensable for all admirers of the artist.
