By Robert Storr, edited with text by Francesca Pietropaolo

The second volume of Focal Points takes as its subject the work of American artist Ad Reinhardt (1913–67). An American abstract painter, he worked in New York alongside artists including Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Willem de Kooning. Renowned art critic and historian Robert Storr curated the award-winning 2013 exhibition of Reinhardt’s work at David Zwirner gallery. 

This book brings together, for the first time, Storr’s writings on Reinhardt’s abstract painting—for which the artist became hugely influential on the younger generations of Minimal and Conceptual practitioners—his satirical cartoons addressing political and social issues and advocating for abstract art, and his famous slide lecture series. With introductory texts by Storr and art historian Francesca Pietropaolo, this book features an essay previously published in How to Look: Ad Reinhardt, Art Comics (2013) and a companion text, also written in 2013, that appears in print for the first time.
