Reviews - What do customers think about James Bishop: Paintings on Paper?
The quiet but powerful art of James Bishop Jul 12, 2008
James Bishop was part of the nineteen seventies group of minimalists that included Brice Marden, Robert Mangold, Robert Ryman and Agnes Martin. His paintings from that time were subtle and austere examples from the period. This book focuses on the small paintings on paper that broke him apart from the artists mentioned above. He still lives and works near Paris and,since the seventies, has produced beautifully subtle paintings on paper that sometimes measure within ten to fifteen inches(or less). The pieces recall Giorgio Morandi, Cezanne and early Renaissance masters in their sense of space and scale. This is a great introduction to his work and the essays are also outstanding.
