Item description for Al Taylor: Drawings by Michael Semff...
The playful ease and subtle humor of Al Taylor's drawings made him an artist's artist par excellence. When he died of lung cancer at age 51 in 1999, he left a large body of work--of the constructions he thought of as three- dimensional drawings, made of broomsticks and wires and tin cans and linoleum and other clean-lined debris, with which he "drew" in the air; and then piles upon piles of drawings themselves, of which Charles Yoder has written that they are "softly nuanced, surely handled and ever changing." The illustrations here offer highlights from both his estate and private collections, including The Museum of Modern Art, as well as a few sculptural works.
