American artist Brice Marden has had a profound impact on painting today. While there has been a sea change in art movements, Marden has unwaveringly adhered to modernist principles of abstraction. From his early monochrome paintings to landscapes of China or the Greek island, Hydra, composed of vivid and calligraphice loops and webs, Marden's deeply personal work incorporates multiple art historical and cultural inspirations. This book explores his work.

About the Author:

Eileen Costello has studied Marden's work closely over the past decade through numerous studio visits and discussions with the artist. She has contributed towards the production of a number of books and exhibition catalogues on the artist, and in 2003 initiated the catalogue raisonne of Marden's drawings and paintings. A specialist in post-war American and European art, she is also the Project Director for The Catalogue Raisonne of the Drawings of Jasper Johns, at The Menil Foundation, Houston.

Review:

On the Phaidon Focus series "Excellent introductions to modern masters series."-The Observer Magazine "Satisfyingly hardback yet not too hefty. Tastefully simple, encased in a plastic cover to protect them from all those crayons and paints that you're sure to whip out in a frenzy of inspiration after browsing these pages. Each contains a trove of images of artwork and educational focus chapters on themes and techniques."-It's Nice That "Concise yet spirited introduction... Plenty of colour plates make it brilliantly useful as a reference tool."-The Sunday Telegraph "Eschewing the heavyweight doorstop format of many art books, these beautiful and compact Phaidon Focus artist monographs are small and slick, and refreshingly affordable... Designed by Julia Hasting, the Zurich-based design director at Phaidon Press, who manages to create a clean, fresh look that - as art book design should - put the artists' work centre stage... Coated in a translucent grey plastic with a clear window, the book's pared back approach continues with clean, black typography on a white background. Never cluttered, but resolutely in-depth, the series manages to condense some of the 20th century's most famous artists' work into small, but by no means diminutive introductions."-DesignWeek.co.uk "Beautifully designed... The most iconic artists of the modern day... Bring you the essentials in a concise manner."-It's Nice That "Phaidon are adept at packaging up key artists and movements in contemporary art, ensuring each generation has a familiar and forward-thinking way of immersing itself in visual culture. The newest tranche of introductory monographs is Phaidon Focus. [...] The Focus series is an extended primer, a handsome hardback designed to provide an in-depth overview of an artist's life, plus a more concentrated focus on key works from the artist's career to date."-Wallpaper.com "Amazing... An essential addition to any art lover's collection."-Grazia
