Color 1941-1980(15 views)
Description: FIRST EDITION containing color reproductions of Callahan's works from 1941 through 1980. "I started color almost as soon as I got started going -- around 1941... And a lot of times that would happen to me. I would do something and I'd think, 'that would be nice in color'. I think I remember now... reality seemed kind of dumb in those days. I'd try to do abstract things like torn signs and pieces of signs -- imitating paintings or something. It's like when I wanted to deal with reality I'd use black and white." -- Harry Callahan. Note: This copy comes with its original shipping box. Because it has been stored in the box, it has not experienced the spine fading usually associated with this title.
