Description

"One of the most significant artists to emerge from post-Independence India, Nasreen Mohamedi (1937-1990) had a singular and sustained engagement with abstraction. This catalogue, first published by Reina Sofía on the occasion of the 2015 exhibiton Nasreen Mohamedi in Madrid, accompanies the inaugural exhibition at The Met Bruer, the artist's first museum retrospective int he United States. In her work, Mohamedi drew upon twentieth-century global modernisms while also referencing the longer history of geometric abstraction and calligraphy in Islamic art. Bringing together new scholarship,l this essential volume illustrates over 200 works spanning Mohamedi's entire career, including paintings, works on paper, photographs, and diaries. By xploring her work's conceptual complexity and visual subtlety, the book reveals this extraordinary artist's aesthetic approach and artistic evolution, situating her minimalist practice within the history of transnational modernism."… (more)
