Edward Kienholz
1960-1970



The fantastic Edward Kienholz “1960-1970” book-object/catalogue, published for a show curated by Pontus Hulten that toured to Städtische Kunsthalle, Düsseldorf in 1970. Designed by Kienholz himself, this book functions as a sort-of bound archive/artist’s book of Kienholz’s major sculptural works and installations throughout the 1960’s. Wrapped in a printed, soft, silver “faux-leather” cloth cover, bound with metal screws into a galvanised metal case, this folio compiles and surveys the work of American installation-artist/sculptor Ed Kienholz between 1960-1970, each work illustrated through colour fold-out gloss pages and multiple black and white images, accompanied by introductory texts by Jürgen Harten in English and German and a foreword by Karl Ruhrberg. Also features a biography and bibliography. An incredible, rare book on Kienholz and an enormously valuable reference source on the artist’s amazing early works. First edition.

Edward Kienholz (October 23, 1927 – June 10, 1994) was an American installation artist and assemblage sculptor whose work was highly critical of aspects of modern life. From 1972 onwards, he assembled much of his artwork in close collaboration with his artistic partner and fifth wife, Nancy Reddin Kienholz. Throughout much of their career, the work of the Kienholzes was more appreciated in Europe than in their native United States, though American museums have featured their art more prominently since the 1990s.

Art critic Brian Sewell called Edward Kienholz “the least known, most neglected and forgotten American artist of Jack Kerouac’s Beat Generation of the 1950s, a contemporary of the writers Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs and Norman Mailer, his visual imagery at least as grim, gritty, sordid and depressing as their literary vocabulary”.

Nicholas Krushenick
Pace Gallery 1969


Scarce 1969 exhibition edition published on the occasion of Nicholas Krushenick at Pace, New York, April 26 – May 21, 1969. This rare Krushenick catalogue comes in the form of 11 colour postcards, each reproducing a painting from the exhibition of the exhibition and housed in their original colour card wallet.

Nicholas Krushenick (May 31, 1929 – February 5, 1999) was an American abstract painter whose artistic style straddled the line between Op Art, Pop Art, Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism and Color Field. He was active in the New York art scene in the 1960s and 1970s, before he withdrew and focused his time as a professor at the University of Maryland for almost thirty years until his death in 1999. Initially experimenting with a more Abstract Expressionist inspired style and cut paper collage, Krushenick is more well known for his paintings which use bold Liquitex colors and juxtaposing black lines, which fall under the category of pop abstraction. In fact, he is a singular figure within that style.

* Condition: Good (very good throughout, only residue from card sticking to back cover) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.
