During the early 1950s, Richard Pousette-Dart (1916-1992) created one of the most beautifully spiritual bodies of work of his career: graphite drawings on undercoats of blue or ochre, painted over a titanium white ground. For an artist known for his love of color and impasto, these predominantly white paintings constituted quite a departure. Twenty-five works were shown at Betty Parsons Gallery in 1955, in an exhibition titled Predominantly White; the artist returned to mine this vein in later paintings in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. This book was publsihed to accompany the exhibition of the same name at The Phillips Collection in the summer of 2010.
