Tony Candido: Drawings Paintings 1956.


CANDIDO. Shkapich, Kim.

Cl. New York, 1993

Book ID: 66592

Published to coincide with an exhibition in the Arthur A. Houghton Jr. Gallery presenting a selection of the work of this painter/architect and member of the faculty of The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture. While the exhibition presented a selection of Candido's monumental painting and drawing oeuvre from between 1955 and 1993, this volume reproduces drawings from a 1956 sketchbook which, in the words of the artist, are "the seeds of insight-the beginning of the fulfillment of a vision. Every mark is clearly there in drawing out the content." The mastery of CandidoÍs calligraphic brushwork creates subtle nuances of form in gesture, these brooding figures provoke and evoke the night of these drawings.

48 pp., color and b&w photos.
