The definitive monograph, created in close collaboration with the artist (1923-2015), a pioneer of abstract art, who influenced subsequent generations of artists such as Tauba Auerbach, Matt Connors and Alex Israel.

This definitive monograph, and the last book to be created in close collaboration with the artist, a pioneer of abstract art and one of the most distinctive and influential artists of our time, maps his prolific and diverse oeuvre from the 1940s to his final projects before his death in late 2015.

Encompassing his paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, postcards and prints, and including the iconic monochromatic paintings for which he has become best known, this monograph includes a chronological survey by Kelly expert Tricia Y. Paik. Enriched with in-depth interviews with Kelly, images from his personal archive, artworks by the artists who have inspired him and his own works, this survey celebrates Kelly's individual approach to his art.

This monograph also features short essays by leading writers and critics, Robert Storr, Richard Shiff, Gary Garrels and Gavin Delahunty, and an illustrated narrative chronology mapping Kelly's life and work, with many never before published images.
