About this title


This retrospective of Anne Truitt’s works on paper spans the four decades of her career, from the early 1960s--when Truitt first developed the totemic sculptures in painted wood for which she is best known--to the last years of her life. Many of the drawings are reproduced here for the first time, and cover the full range of her drawing techniques, from graphite, ink and pastel to acrylic on paper. Edges are variously taped, rolled or sliced; Truitt’s line is sometimes bold, and at other times subtle enough to seem almost invisible. In one group of works from 1976, paint is applied in layers of subtle color (a signature of her work in all media); a 1966 series of distilled, hard-edged abstractions evoke the architecture of the artist’s childhood home with its white clapboard siding and picket fence. This volume offers the first overview of Truitt’s drawings to date.
