This anthology of personal tributes to Ellsworth Kelly is a companion volume to The Prints of Ellsworth Kelly: A Catalogue Raisonné. Gathering the reflections of men and women who have been close to Kelly and his art, particularly his prints, over the years, Letters to Ellsworth includes essays on Kelly’s prints by curators, art historians, publishers, printers, dealers, and collectors.
The 18 essays that make up this book are memorable testaments to Kelly's work. Authors write engagingly of curating and installing exhibitions, collaborating with the artist in his workshop, publishing, representing, selling, and collecting his prints, and the recollection of first acquiring a print by Kelly. Letters to Ellsworth offers an intimate look at the bonds between artist and friend.
