Anne Truitt: Perception and Reflection

Anne Truitt: Perception and Reflection (Giles, $55), by Kristen Hileman and James Meyer, is the catalog for the current retrospective of this pioneering Washington sculptor’s work (at the Hirshhorn through January 3). Here are full-color images of her abstract sculptures in two and three dimensions. Hileman, curator of the Truitt show, provides a biographical essay and overview of the sculptor’s growth as an artist; Meyer, an art historian who has written extensively on Minimalism, places Truitt in the wider context of abstract minimalism. We knew Truitt as a frequent customer in the store, where her modesty masked this immense talent so wondrously portrayed in this new volume.
