This richly illustrated book accompanies the first major museum survey of R. H. Quaytman’s paintings. R. H. Quaytman’s paintings are celebrated for their sumptuous beauty, complexity, and rigor. This book, the first museum publication to provide a critical overview of Quaytman’s work to date, includes new essays that contextualize her practice and examine the evolution of her chosen themes. Illustrated with the artist’s extensive archive of Polaroids, on which her work is based, the book focuses on the artist’s process of formatting her paintings onto wood panels, organizing them into exhibitions that she refers to as “chapters,” and her work’s site-specific nature, created in dialogue with each exhibition venue’s historical, architectural, or social aspects. This book presents a remarkable oeuvre that simultaneously provides opportunities for visual pleasure and scholarly inquiry.
