    Review ------ "A word about the show's catalog: It's one of the best I've ever seen. Its size (generous, but not clumsily large), weight (hefty but not uncomfortable), fonts, paper, interior images and cover illustration (a 1968 work on paper by Hesse that gracefully sums up the show's premise) are just about perfect. The essays—by the show's curator, Veronica Roberts; art historian Kirsten Swenson; and Ms. Lippard, the veteran critic—are informative and argot-free. . . . The 'Converging Lines' catalog should be a model for museum publications to come."—Peter Plagens, Wall Street Journal "Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt were the closest of friends, their bond informing much of their work. A new book, Converging Lines, chronicles their kinship through personal photos, affectionate letters and . . . postcards from across the globe."—T: The New York Times Style Magazine "Historians have made much of the influence of conceptualist Sol Lewitt on artist Eva Hesse, but this book—and its corresponding exhibition—effortlessly proves that this inspiration went both ways."—Publishers Weekly "The exhibition is accompanied by an excellent catalogue co-published by the Blanton and Yale University Press. It reproduces not only numerous works by the two artists, but marvelous examples of their correspondence."—Tyler Green, Modern Art Notes Read more ( javascript:void(0) ) Book Description ---------------- This book celebrates a remarkable friendship between two of the 20th century’s most significant artists, and reveals the indelible impact they had on each other’s artistic practices and lives.
