"From the outset, he indicated his preference for white paints and square formats. White, in optics, is not a color as such, but a manifestation of all colors enabled by light. Neutral, soft, inherently accumulative, white offers Ryman the possibility of unifying his surface as a whole, covering layers of other paints but also revealing white's nuances. The shape of the square, like white, is also neutral. With no references to the recognizable environment and free of any associations, it is a perfectly balanced, geometric structure on equal sides. Both the square and the white enabled Ryman to realize his paintings not in the traditional sense of picture or image but as objects in space."
Vesela Sretenovic, excerpted from Robert Ryman: Variations and Improvisations.

Text by Vesela Sretenovic.

For over 50 years, Robert Ryman (born 1930) has explored the materiality of paint and the surfaces to which he applies it, in white-on-white paintings that subtly attain the status of painted objects rather than patterned gestures or depictions of further objects. Published on the occasion of the Phillips Collection's Ryman exhibition in Washington, D.C., Robert Ryman: Variations and Improvisations presents approximately 25 small-scale works, all of which are drawn from private collections, and some of which have only rarely been shown in the U.S. An interview with the artist is included.

Robert Ryman: At Inverleith House, Royal Botanic Garden, EdinburghRobert Ryman: At Inverleith House, Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh

Published by Walther König/Raussmuller Collection.
Edited by Christel Sauer. Text by Urs Raussmüller, Meret Arnold.

On July 27, 2006, the important American Minimalist painter, Robert Ryman, and curator Urs Raussmüller conducted a public conversation in Edinburgh, discussing in detail the qualities that define Ryman's works and distinguish them from other paintings. The conversations took place in the garden next to Inverleith House--the eighteenth-century estate that now houses an innovative program of temporary exhibitions run by the Royal Botanic Garden--and touched on issues that rarely surface in the discourse on painting, from the feelings that a painting can engender to what the viewers can gain from the contemplation of an artwork. With generous photo documentation of Ryman's exhibition at Inverleith House, as well as the garden talk and other unguarded moments, this book-length conversation is essential fare for all fans of Ryman's work and working philosophy.

Robert Ryman: Works On Paper 1957-1964Robert Ryman: Works On Paper 1957-1964

Published by Peter Blum Edition, New York.
Essay by Peter Blum.

The works in this exhibition catalogue record the time when Robert Ryman, then in his early twenties, was formulating his disciplined approach to painting. On off-white and translucent materials including wallpaper, a circular coffee filter, newsprint and mylar, Ryman drew, tooled, brushed and pressed his marks using a flat table to support the work. His decision to use the square as a consistent format for non-narrative work was set, and while he sporadically used color in these earliest works, he subsequently chose white almost exclusively in the process of eliminating all that was superfluous to a painting.
