Named one of the Best Art Books of 2022 by Hyperallergic, this fully-illustrated catalogue features 17 canvases drawn from the artist’s remarkable oeuvre in documentation of the most comprehensive solo presentation of her painting for US audiences in decades. Staged in 2022 in New York, Doesn’t the Paint Say It All? was the first exhibition at Kasmin dedicated to the work of Tanning, whose pioneering explorations into the space between abstraction and figuration continue to influence vital painters today. Included in the publication are newly-commissioned essays by Mary Ann Caws, Kate Conley, and Victoria Carruthers, as well as a text by Tanning herself titled, “To Paint”.
