    “The first monographic exhibition on the artist in Spain and one of the most complete surveys ever curated in Europe, this title illustrates Ad Reinhardt’s tremendous influence on Abstract Expressionism as well as subsequent contemporary art styles. This catalogue includes a selection of approximately 50 paintings and works on paper, spanning Reinhardt’s career from early works to later art characterised by a progressive reduction of colour and form. Reinhardt’s paintings are rarely representational and are instead composed of geometrics and eventually only colour: canvases of all red, all blue, all black. Another focal point of the volume is Reinhardt’s passions and artistic pursuits beyond painting, including his slides, writings on art, illustrations in newspapers, books, magazines and pamphlets, and his comics satirising the art world and politics.Ad Reinhardt (1913-67) was born in Buffalo, New York, and studied art history at Columbia University from 1931 to 1935, after which he participated in the WPA Federal Art Project initiative. Reinhardt soon became an official member of the newly formed American Abstract Artist group alongside painters such as Josef Albers and Jackson Pollock. He exhibited regularly and taught at Brooklyn College for the remainder of his life.” (publisher’s blurb)
