Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Tuttle has long been considered an artist on the cutting edge, often mentioned in the same sentence as Eva Hesse and Richard Serra. His 40-year career has consistently been about making people think about art "outside the box." The word playful is often applied to his work, and it is a very apt description indeed. This catalog is produced by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and published in conjunction with a six-city traveling retrospective of 300 pieces, including paintings, sculptures, artist books, and wall reliefs. It contains more than 260 reproductions, documentary images of Tuttle's working methods and past installations, an exhibition history, and a bibliography. Full-sized plates of the works in the exhibition accompany insightful essays and case studies by numerous art historians that help the reader better understand Tuttle's oeuvre. Recommended for larger academic libraries with strong contemporary art collections. [The exhibition kicked off in San Francisco in July and will be traveling over the next two years to New York, Des Moines, Dallas, Chicago, and Los Angeles.-Ed.]-Sheila Devaney, Univ. of Georgia Libs., Athens Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
