A focused, unique retrospective exhibition catalogue for the Bridget Riley: Paintings and Related Work 1983 – 2010 exhibition at Galerie Max Hetzler in Berlin (12 February – 16 April 2011), this large format book presents an exhibition curated by Bridget Riley herself, including works from private collections and some works never before shown in Germany. The focus is on the last three decades of the artist's work, and the book includes her 2009 essay, 'Work', and her 2005 conversation with Lynne Cooke. In 2009, Riley received Germany's most prestigious prize, the Goslar Award for Modern Art, and in 2012 she will be awarded the Rubenspreis der Stadt Siegen. The book includes crisp reproductions, several fold-out pages and a rare photographic portrait of Riley, in front of a study for her Composition with Circles series.
