Harold Ancart: Paintings

Regular price Regular price $60

This book was published on the occasion of Harold Ancart: Paintings at Gagosian, 541 West 21st Street, New York, the artist’s debut solo exhibition at the gallery. Juxtaposing figurative and abstract components, and making repeated use of a tree motif, the works feature vigorous patchworks of color and explore natural and constructed locations. Made with oil stick and pencil, they are distinguished by their highly nuanced color and texture, as well as their atmospheric compositions that blur the boundaries between observed and imagined realities.

Fully illustrated with color reproductions of the eleven paintings in the exhibition, the book features an essay by Andrew Winer that traces the genesis and significance of Ancart’s work, in part through his fascination with other artists. Ancart is, writes Winer, “a true painter, what some people call a painter’s painter. He is also a philosopher, a real one.” Winer also contributes a wide-ranging interview with the artist.
