Book Description:
A magisterial presentation of all the works of Barnett Newman, along with fascinating new insights into his artistic achievement

Barnett Newman (1905 1970), one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, has captivated critics, scholars, and the general public for decades. This highly anticipated catalogue raisonn presents Newman s entire oeuvre paintings, drawings, sculpture, graphics, an architectural model, lost and unfinished works, and ephemera in one stunning and definitive volume. Featured elements include color reproductions of unparalleled quality; extensive provenance, exhibition, and publication histories; and a listing of the contents of the artist s library at the time of his death.

In addition to the catalogue raisonn prepared by Heidi Colsman Freyberger, the book offers revelatory essays on the artist, his career, and his working methods and features fascinating photographs of Newman, his studios, and his installations. Richard Shiff draws on new documentation to explain why Newman chose to create abstract art, how he achieved fullness in his paintings, and how his works exemplify the social functions of an artist. Carol C. Mancusi Ungaro reveals extraordinary details about Newman s studio practice and materials and techniques, information not available to the public before because Newman only allowed his wife to observe him at work. Mancusi Ungaro also discusses the fate of works that were damaged while traveling to exhibitions or by vandals.

Produced and designed to the highest possible standards, this magnificent catalogue raisonn is a critical purchase for anyone interested in twentieth century art.

Richard Shiff is Effie Marie Cain Regents Chair in Art and Director of the Center for the Study of Modernism at the University of Texas; Carol C. Mancusi Ungaro is Director of Conservation at the Whitney Museum of American Art; and Heidi Colsman Freyberger is an independent scholar, researcher, and bibliographer.
