This beautiful volume is a complete, thorough work on the colorful art of Morris Louis. The expert text and the magnificent catalog present him once more as the unique and original artist that he is, emerging between two generations: the abstract expressionist generation and the color field minimalist generation.
Morris Louis (1912-1962) was an American artist, who became one of the chief exponents of Color Field painting. Together with Kenneth Noland and other Washington painters he formed an art movement known today as the Washington Color School.
