This comprehensive monograph - published on the occasion of the first complete retrospective of Kelly's work since 1973, organized at the Guggenheim Museum by Diane Waldman, the museum's Deputy Director and Senior Curator - is a definitive investigation of Kelly's career, from his earliest works to the present. Waldman, author of numerous monographs on Modern and contemporary art, has brought together more than 399 of Kelly's most important paintings, sculptures, and works on paper (including several that have never been published): early abstract paintings and reliefs; figurative drawings; collages; photographs; paintings featuring a synthesis of biomorphic and geometric form; single-panel and multipanel paintings; shaped panels; and many of his sculptures, including the first two (from 1959) through the most recent (from 1996). her essay - an overview of Kelly's entire career - and four additional essays on various aspects of his oeuvre by Roberta Bernstein, Carter Ratcliff, Mark Rosenthal, and Clare Bell (plus a Chronology, Exhibition History, and Bibliography) explain the important relationships among his works in various mediums, and reveal why and how Kelly has produced some of the most distinctive art of our time
