Japanese-born, New-York-based On Kawara (b.1933) is one of the world's best-known Conceptual artists, a major international figure since the 1960s. Kawara's existence is documented solely through his daily art-making practice. Best known are his Date Paintings (1965-ongoing), in which he methodically creates a single painting a day, with simply the date written on it.


This book is a rare chance for his followers to unravel more of the mystery of this cult figure, and for less familiar readers to be introduced to his fascinating life and work. A unique feature of this book is the Tribute section, which reflects the artist's lifelong commitment never to be personally documented in his own words.

Condition | Near Mint,  - Excellent second hand condition - very carefully looked after. Sold as a Phaidon 'non-mint' copy and stamped with this information on the inner front page. There is one very small tear to the bottom right hand corner of the front cover, as pictured and reflected in low price (at time of valuation - lowest on Amazon is £78 for worse condition)
