By the twentieth century, the window had transformed into a motif that would test the limits of painting. With his 1920 “Fresh Widow”--a replica of a French window with panes covered in black leather--Marcel Duchamp postulated a farewell to illusionist painting. This publication presents the development of window painting by artists such as Robert Delaunay, Henri Matisse, Marcel Duchamp, René Magritte, Ellsworth Kelly, Eva Hesse, Gerhard Richter and many others.

Featured image, Matisse's "Red Interior, Still Life on a Blue Table" (1947), is reproduced from Fresh Widow: The Window in Art since Matisse and Duchamp.
