by Richard Vine

MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingConversations

"Dogancay's extensive body of work on paper, spanning half a century, is thoroughly illustrated and explored in this timely volume which coincides with the opening of the Dogancay Museum in Istanbul, Turkey. Divided into five sections, the artist's works in drawing, watercolor, fumage, collage, and mixed media are all surveyed with an eye to illuminating the unique combination of artistic independence and technical confidence that characterize his work. Born and raised in Turkey, this diplomat-turned-artist first studied in Paris, won a doctorate in economics, then toured the world before making his home, and the center of his artistic life, in New York. Throughout these pages Dogancay's love of travel, people and adventure are expressed as the festive collage his life continues to be. An essay by Richard Vine, managing editor of Art in America, and a foreword by Thomas M. Messer, former director of the Guggenheim Museum, as well as additional biographical and bibliographical materials, complete this picture of an important artist during a key period of our time."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
