Gene Davis: a memorial exhibition, with essays by Douglas Davis and Donald Kuspit

Washington, DC: Smithsonian Institution Press, 1987. Color frontispiece and 100 pls. (85 color) + 16 ills. (4 color). 190 pp. Red cloth with silver titling on spine, in dustjacket with Brodart sleeve. 24.8 x 26.9 cm. The catalogue illustrates 76 works. Figure 15, "Franklin's footpath," is perhaps the ultimate color-field painting, a spectacular treatment of the road leading up to the Philadelphia Museum of Arts' famous steps in a pattern of about 60 exquisitely chosen color stripes. Chronology; selected exhibitions; selected bibliography; lenders to the exhibition. Very good, with intermittent light foxing. The gray flyleaf bears the previous art-gallery owner's inconspicuous blindstamp. There is a trace of dampstaining at the bottom of the spine, but it is not visible during normal use. ISBN O-87474-954-2. **Free domestic shipping with direct order. Item #07030
