Kitaj Prints - A Catalogue Raisonné

Kitaj Prints - A Catalogue Raisonné

Looking at Kitaj's early prints almost fifty years later, one is struck by how bold, fresh, witty and incisive they are. Undoubtedly they are riddled with obscure references, but this is what makes them so intriguing: they are like maddening visual crossword puzzles to be decoded, interpreted, savoured, and relished.' Jennifer Ramkalawon curated a catalogue raisonné that reflects her observation on Ronald Brooks Kitaj and is published by The British Museum Press.
Featuring all the prints by the American artist, who chose England as his adopted home, the contrasting layout of the catalogue reflects the diversity of Kitaj's works, lending emphasis to each of the inimitable pieces of art and making the book a covetable object in its own right.
