Sales Points

The first complete monograph of the artist, which includes a full survey of 50 of Anne Truitt’s sculptures and over 40 two-dimensional works made during the artist's 40-year career, up to her death in 2004 Features essays by organizing curator Kristen Hileman and leading scholar James Meyer that interpret Truitt’s career and her place within the broader context of American abstraction

About the Book

Anne Truitt, an artist based in Washington, D.C. for most of her career, remains an under-recognized force in art post-1960, partly because she pursued a staunchly independent course in her art: not only did she take a different path from the Color Field artists often associated with Washington, D.C., but she created reduced geometric abstraction that deviated from the approaches of Minimalist artists in some significant ways. This volume, which accompanied the first major retrospective exhibition of Anne Truitt’s work in over 30 years, at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden 2009, forms an important part of the re-evaluation of Truitt’s art, due to the scope of work which it presents. Whilst Truitt’s work has featured as part of larger surveys of Minimalism, as well as in Truitt’s own artist’s journals it has never before been the subject of a complete monographic survey. Anne Truitt: Perception and Reflection significantly increases our understanding of post-1960’s art.
