Walter Leblanc
208 pages | 28 × 24 cm | 150 illustrations

Little is known about Walter Leblanc (1932–1986), one of the key representatives of kinetic and optical art in the mid-twentieth century. Edited by Francesca Pola, this comprehensive monograph on the artist is the first conceived for an international public. It includes significant unpublished materials which provide insight not only into the art of Leblanc, but also into the extraordinary ZERO artist movement that he was connected to and in close dialogue with starting in the 1950s. Walter Leblanc is based on extensive international studies of the artist’s work. With about 150 images of his paintings and sculptures, comparative works, historical photos and documents, it includes a selection of Leblanc’s writings, an iconographic mapping of selected works in museums around the world, and a bio-bibliographical appendix. In demonstrating the outstanding wealth of his creative output, the book reaffirms the enduring role Walter Leblanc played in the development of modern and contemporary art on a global scale.
