Five distinct bodies of work by artist Pat Steir are considered: her minimal and intimate word/image drawings (1970–1974), richly delineated serial investigations of line (1975–1976), heroically scaled wave drawings (1983–1986), four interrelated series of waterfall drawings (1991), and a series of broad, gestural marks that often serve as a background for pastel grids (2007–2008). Steir’s wall drawings are also represented.

This volume complements the exhibition Pat Steir: Drawing Out of Line, shown at the RISD Museum February 19 through July 3, 2010.

Proceeds from RISD Museum publications support the work of the museum.
