Item description for Ellsworth Kelly: 1954, Drawings on a Bus (Sketchbook S.) by Ellsworth Kelly & Roberta Bernstein...
This reproduction of Ellsworth Kelly's 1954 Sketchbook 23 offers a rare glimpse into the celebrated artist's rigorous exploration of line, form and composition. Drawn into a blank book and forming a single continuous gesture over 25 pages as the artist saw and captured the changing fall of shadows while riding on a bus in Paris, Kelly's line pursues a path of eccentric discovery and distillation through subtle variations and bold transformations.

More About Ellsworth Kelly & Roberta Bernstein
Ellsworth Kelly was born in Newburgh, New York in 1923. His first one-person exhibition was held in 1951 in Paris, where he was studying on the G.I. Bill following World War II. Kelly returned to the United States in 1954, renting a studio in downtown New York, and his position among America's most esteemed painters began to take form. Since that time, the artist's work has been the subject of numerous major retrospectives worldwide and is presently included in all of the most important public collections of contemporary art. The drawings reproduced in this volume were on view at Matthew Marks Gallery in November, 2006, accompanying a major exhibition of new paintings and sculpture. Kelly currently lives and works in upstate New York.
