Sobre o livro
This book will present a comprehensive view of the work of American painter Philip Taaffe b.1955, who has expanded the parameters of painting through his use of silkscreen, linocuts, collage, stencils, gouache, chine-coll, marbling, acrylic, enamel, watercolor, and gold leaf. Yaus insightful text is the first to look at every part of Taaffes artistic development, from the works he made at Cooper Union, while a student of Hans Haacke, to the present. It pays special attention to Taaffes acquisition of different techniques, as well as investigating his various sources of inspiration.
