David Salle's work is deeply imbued with the context of contemporary and modern culture, while being one of the most forward-looking and innovative example of its time. "Restating the essence of figurative painting while forsaking its idealized conventions," it challenges all the previous concepts of art as we know and perceive it, while affecting a powerful factor of change and influence in modern times. This first full monograph on the artist covers the period from 1979 to the 1994 exhibition, showing this unique work in all its importance, and shining a light on the ways it shaped modern culture and is yet a typical example of it. 223 pages. 10.75 x 12.5 inches.
FIRST EDITION. Lavishly illustrated in full-color and B&W. Includes numerous quotes as well as a biographical and historical text. Includes a chronology, a bibliography and an index to plates.
