Sculpture for a Large Wall, 1957
Out of Print


Essays by Dave Hickey and James Meyer.

In 1957 Kelly was commissioned to produce a 65-foot-long wall sculpture for a building in Philadelphia, his largest work to that date. Largely forgotten, the sculpture was eventually dismantled. This catalogue, published on the occasion of the sculpture's first exhibition in New York, includes an essay fully documenting its history and a four-page color fold-out reproduction. Sculpture for a Large Wall, 1957 is now in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, New York. The book is presented in a slipcase paired with a catalogue reproducing seven recent single-panel shaped canvases by the artist.

40 pages. 24 plates (13 color and 11 b&w) and 1 color fold-out. Wraps.
