    This is an excellent exhibition catalogue with lots of colour images published for the Truitt show at the Hirshhorn Museum There are two very interesting scholarly essays based on extensive research One by the curator Kristen Hilemen and the other by James MeyerMeyer continues his consideration of Truitt started in his superb book on minimalism Minimalism Art and polemics in the sixties When I read that book I was at first skeptical of the way he positioned Truitt in relation to minimalism it seemed like a strange sort of 'feminist recovery inclusion Now I am think that positioning Truitt in relation to minimalism really opens up that history letting colour and sensuality back in Her work needs to be seen in the flesh but it is nonetheless very well represented by the catalogue uite a feat in itself

    I have definitely been curious about Anne Truitt's body of work and though I missed the exhibition this catalog definitely does the job well of showing her sculptural and 2D work It also points out the influences and origin of ideas the overlapping between the pre MinimalismColor Field days to a Minimalist lite ? designation thrust upon her In the end the sculptures only got better over time and the paintings were certainly ahead of their time

    With two lucid essays this book makes it clear that reproductions of Truitt's work are far from the real thing that her works are meant to be circled inspected from top to bottom experienced As good as the photography is it often struggles to represent the texture and slight gradations of color that are so important to her work
