Best Art Books of 2021 – ‘Erna Rosenstein: Once Upon a Time’

by Roberta Smith | 9 December 2021

‘Especially impressive is the museum-caliber show introducing the multifaceted Polish artist Erna Rosenstein (1913-2004), organized by the intrepid Alison M. Gingeras at Hauser & Wirth (through Dec. 23). More than 40 works range from 1946 to 2001, stretching Surrealism, realism, assemblage and even fairy tales into new shapes.’

Best Art Books of 2021 – ‘Marcel Duchamp’

by Jason Farago | 9 December 2021

‘He first declared a bicycle wheel to be a work of art in 1913, but it took nearly half a century — with the 1959 publication of Robert Lebel’s catalogue raisonné of his early painting, his ready-mades and his cryptic notes — for the New York art world to crown the discreet and debonair Duchamp as King Marcel. Long out of print, it’s now been re-editioned and bundled with a supplement that maps the influence of Lebel’s book over the decades, all housed in a handsome slipcase.’

Die Rätsel des Künslters Marcel Duchamp

by Ulrike Hug-Stüwe | 26 November 2021

‘Die Publikation, die auch Duchamps erste Monografie war, ist in vielerlei Hinsicht eine Investition, die sich lohnt. Einerseits gibt sie einen sehr umfassenden und auch persönlich anmutenden Einblick in die Entwicklung und Arbeitsweise des Künstlers, der beileibe nicht nur ein Künstler des Readymade's war, wie seine Arbeiten vor 1913 und später zeigen. Andererseits wird man mit der Publikation in eine Zeit reisen, deren Dynamik im Hinblick auf die Weitung des Kunstbegriffes auch heute noch einmalig ist.’

Erna Rosenstein’s Dreamlike Forms Resist Interpretation

by Peter Brock | 9 November 2021

‘Rosenstein’s work feels nourishing precisely because it is difficult to summarize. Engaging with these paintings takes time because she never settles into a uniform graphic strategy, and the shifting beauty of her restless imagination pushes against the reductive tendency and impatience that characterizes the attention economy.’
