The pioneering conceptual artist John Baldessari (b. 1931) began his career as a painter in the 1950s, but in the subsequent decades he expanded his practice in a new and groundbreaking direction by juxtaposing texts with found photography or appropriated images. These texts questioned the nature of art and the art-viewing experience, suggesting new meanings for the images they accompanied. This interaction of words and images remained a critical aspect of Baldessari’s work, even as he branched into other media, such as site-specific installations, drawings, video, sculpture, prints, and multiples.

The first of a projected four-volume set, this lavishly illustrated book features about 500 works and chronicles an important shift in Baldessari’s thinking during these formative years.
