Felix Gonzalez-Torres: Catalogue Raisonee (2 Volume Set)User Review - Book Verdict
The outgrowth of a retrospective exhibition touring Austria and Germany, this book sets out to encompass the short but highly original and prominent career of the Cuban-born American artist Gonzalez-Torres (1957-96). The first volume presents six essays, in both German and English, from the curators of various museums as well as his gallerist. Competent, if not always engaging, the writers concentrate on the work rather than the life of the artist, examining his use of diverse materials and sometimes sentimental metaphors. The second volume attempts to catalog the full output from his barely decade-long career, addressing the particularly thorny issue of certain pieces that were never fully sanctioned or were later disavowed. Compiled with the full cooperation of his gallery, the second volume illustrates and provides exhibition and publication history of nearly 300 works and also documents the current owners of most items as well as their provenance. Scholars, curators, and collectors will appreciate this comprehensive approach, and academic and specialized art libraries should acquire this important document; medium-sized general libraries should have a copy of the more accessible Felix Gonzalez-Torres (LJ 5/1/94).--Eric Bryant, "Library Journal"
