Overview

Among the most highly regarded of contemporary painters, Pat Steir has in recent years reached a new level of achievement. In the present volume, which reproduces in color seventy-seven of her most important paintings, Thomas McEvilley surveys the whole of her career as an artist, giving special emphasis to her remarkable recent work. Steir has long been admired for pictures that quote the history of painting. Outstanding among these "quotational" pictures is the virtuoso Brueghel Series of 1982-84, a group of sixty-four panels each executed in the style of a different artist or period. That group, reproduced here, formed the climax of an earlier book on Steir published 1986. Since then, her work has moved into a more fluid abstraction with The Moon and the Wave of 1986-87. Again she has drawn freely on the history of art - both Western (Courbet's The Wave) and Eastern (Hokusai's The Great Wave) - now with a new sovereignty, mastering the difficult format of the tondo.

    One Artist's Communion with Nature

    Pat Steir is an artist whose works have been mutating and gaining in impact for a number a years now. Her initial works quoted art history in a most unique way: at one point she created an ongoing series of 'self-portraits' in the style of great artists, a beautiful series of monoprints made at Crown Point Press. That preoccupation with painters of yesteryear continued in her famous water paintings ' in the style of ...' - splendid abstractions of ocean waves, water falls, sea vantages, etc - each of which paid homage to painters known for their affinity for water (Turner, Hokusai, Courbet, etc). Though this book was published in 1995, it remains the only volume that comprehensively covers Steir's life and art. Sadly missing from the libraries now is the wondrous Carter Ratcliff essay/interview book 'Pat Steir Paintings'. But McEvilley's prose and selection of images is superb. Even though many of Steir's works are huge in size, the reproductions are so fine that the magic remains intact. An artist respected among the cognoscenti for decades, Pat Steir deserves more recognition from the public for her quality, spiritual approach to the canvas and paper. And this book is highly recommended for those who are familiar with her work and those who have never heard her name! Grady Harp
