About this title


A few years ago, The New York Times's Ken Johnson wrote of a series of Pat Steir paintings that "Beauty and Intellect join forces" in them, and that "what saves them from being just pretty pictures is the way they weave together several strands of meaning into a more complex conceptual fabric." Over the decades Steir has been carrying on just the sort of A-list painting career that pulls in accolades like that, putting up installations of her paintings in Europe, Asia, and the U.S. This monograph contains complete biographical and bibliographical information, an essay and an extensive interview between Doris von Drathen and Steir.

About the Author:

Pat Steir has been painting and making prints and installations for decades, and exhibiting her work worldwide since the early 1970s, in which time she has had more than 145 solo exhibitions. She is the recipient of two NEA grants and one Guggenheim grant, and her work has appeared at venues including the Whitney Museum, the Brooklyn Museum, the Corcoran Gallery, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Tate Gallery. She has taught at Parsons School of Design, Princeton University, Hunter College and the California Institute of the Arts. She lives and works in New York and Amsterdam.

Doris von Drathen's art writing has been included in such publications as Pedro Cabrita Reis: Giving Heed to Silence, Rebecca Horn: Concert for Buchenwald, and Paolo Canevari. She lives in Paris.
