ANSEL ADAMS AT 100 will be published in conjuction with an outstanding international exhibition that will open in August 2001 at the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco and travel for more than two years to Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Berlin and London. This exhibition and the book that accompanies it will present, along with a fresh look at Adams' classic images, an unexpected and sometimes unfamiliar body of his work, offering the first serious effort to reconsider Adams' contribution to the art of photography in half a century. A critical and interpretive essay on this master photographer by John Szarkowski speaks of the importance of Adams as a modern artist. The book boasts extremely high production values, featuring 110 tritone images printed on a special paper, a linen cloth binding with matching slipcase and a reproduction print (suitable for framing) embossed with the AA seal and inserted in an envelope at the back of the book. Without a doubt, this will be the most important and influential book yet published on Ansel Adams.

The first biography of visionary artist Agnes Martin, one of the most original and influential painters of the postwar period Over the course of a career that spanned fifty years, Agnes Martin’s austere, serene work anticipated and helped to define Minimalism, even as she battled psychological crises and carved out a solitary existence in the American Southwest. Martin identified with the Abstract Expressionists but her commitment to linear geometry caused her to be associated in turn with Minimalist, feminist, and even outsider artists. She moved through some of the liveliest art communities of her time while maintaining a legendary reserve. “I paint with my back to the world,” she says both at the beginning and at the conclusion of a documentary filmed when she was in her late eighties. When she died at ninety-two, in Taos, New Mexico, it is said she had not read a newspaper in half a century. No substantial critical monograph exists on this acclaimed artist—the recipient of two career retrospectives as well as the National Medal of the Arts—who was championed by critics as diverse in their approaches as Lucy Lippard, Lawrence Alloway, and Rosalind Krauss. Furthermore, no attempt has been made to describe her extraordinary life. The whole engrossing story, told here for the first time, Agnes Martin is essential reading for anyone interested in abstract art or the history of women artists in America.

The quality of the large, crisp white pages are conducive to a range of applications, while a middle margin keeps all the artwork fully colorable. A dozen meditative mandalas created from the drawings round out this gorgeous adult coloring book.
