A pair of Collectible volumes on Barnett Newman 1972 and 1992
1. 'Barnett Newman' Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York in 1971. Hardback with dust-cover. A point of interest of this volume is the dedication on the front (red) flyleaf. It is a signed dedication to Mr and Mrs Will Sandberg (Collector and former director of the Stedelijk Museum), "with love" from Annalee Newman (1972). Annalee Newman was particularly known for promoting her husband's work, both during his life and posthumously. Barnett died in 1970. She is represented in the book in a few photographs. This book is a nice record of her devotion.
2. Barnett Newman Zim Zum 2. Published by The Gogosian Gallery in 1992.
This book is unusual as it deals with Barnett Newman the sculptor. In 1969, he was invited to be part of a Sculpture project in Japan. This exhibition documented the results. The monumental work brings to mind Richard Serra. 'Very Good' condition.
