Library JournalPublished to accompany a major exhibition at the National Gallery in Washington, this book reproduces all works in the show in full color. The reproductions are augmented by Kelly's preliminary sketches and black-and-white photographs taken by the artist to document the sources of these works, as well as an illustrated appendix detailing Kelly's work in America from 1940 to 1948. The three essays in this volume by noted modern art historians explore Kelly's early work in France and its impact on his later work. Complementary textual matter includes a chronology of Kelly's early career, detailed notes on each of the paintings executed in France, and an extensive bibliography. Recommended for art libraries and strong collections of American or contemporary art.-- Martin R. Kalfatovic, Natl. Museum of American Art/Natl.
