Albert Ràfols -Casamada (Barcelona 1923) is without doubt one of the foremost artists working today in Lyrical Abstraction, a style that is of undisputed international importance, in which Ràfols-Casamada stands alongside artists such a Helen Frankenthaler and Richard Diebenkorn, with whom he shares an esprit de finesse Dore Ashton, a refined sensibility and a formal asceticism. His sensibility is also given expression in his poetry and serves in this wide-ranging study by J.f. Yvars less as a structural element and more as a kind of pause, establishing the unerring cadence of a discourse of images begun more than 50 years ago.
Vision and Sign. The painting of Ràfols-Casamada is the most complete monograph on this artists and an essential reference book for anyone wishing to study his work.
