The first English catalogue raisonnť on the influential creator of the abstract landscape
The first catalogue raisonnť in English, this 800-page volume documents all 1,120 works by French painter Nicolas de StaŽl (1914Ė55) in full color. Expanded and updated from the French catalogue raisonnť of 1997, it is augmented with classic texts on de Stael's work, exhibition histories, provenance for each work and essays by, among others, former chief curator of the Phillips Collection, Eliza Rathbone. Made (and exhibited) contemporaneously with American abstract expressionism, de StaŽl's works are characterized by thick impastoed bricks of color that oscillate between landscape and abstraction, compact composition and a singularly intense sense of light.
A major influence on American painters such as Richard Diebenkorn and Etel Adnan, de StaŽlís earliest American champion and collector, Duncan Phillips, founder of the Phillips Collection, called de StaŽl "the most gifted, the most influential and the most painterly" of modern European painters.

Nicolas de StaŽl (1914Ė1955) was one of the most celebrated European painters of the postwar period. His career was brief but intense; in the span of about 15 years he became a leading figure of what is now called the School of Paris. This catalogue documents his most prolific decade, the 1950s.
