This reproduction of Kelly's 1954 sketchbook offers a rare glimpse into the celebrated artist's rigorous exploration of line, form, and composition in a single continuous gestural mark, drawn in a blank book over 25 pages as the artist observed the changing fall of shadows while riding on a bus in Paris. Kelly's line pursues a path of eccentric discovery and distillation through subtle variations and bold transformations.
