A leading light of the Art Informel generation that also included Tapies and Dubuffet, Alberto Burri (1915-95) continues to exert a huge influence on artists today, as the popularity of his 2015 Guggenheim show and the perpetual scarcity of Burri monographs attests. This volume-the most comprehensive book on the artist in print-explores the beauty and complexity of the creative process, material poetry, that undergirded all of his work. Burri worked with the most varied materials with an inexhaustible creative energy: tar, paper, fabric, jute sacks, combustions of plastic, wood and iron all found their way into his picture plane, transfiguring the vocabulary of painting for the postwar sensibility. This affordable volume introduces Burri's poetical vocabulary of materials for a new audience.
