1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although American artist Lucas Samaras?s reputation rests primarily on his sculptures and photographs, he is also a remarkable draftsman who has produced a considerable body of work on paper throughout his career. Attracted to pastel for its bright colors and shimmering surface ? and because it was an unfashionable medium during the heyday of Abstract Expressionist painting ? Samaras began working in pastel in the 1950s and returned to it at various periods during the following 25 years. The publication features many of Samaras?s favorite subjects: still lifes, interiors, self-portraits, and abstract compositions. With their dreamlike imagery, erotic suggestion, and mystical overtones, Samaras?s pastels express on an intimate scale his moods and mental states throughout the first three decades of his career.00Exhibition: Morgan Library & Museum, NYC, USA (06.05.-21.08.2016)
