Etel Adnan (b.1925) is a Lebanese-American poet, essayist and visual artist. This is the first book to present a full account of Adnan’s fascinating life and work, using the drama of her biography, the complexity of her identity, and the cosmopolitan nature of her experience to illuminate the many layers and dimensions of her paintings and their progress over several crucial decades.
Adnan came relatively late to painting—her first images were created in the mid-1960s in response to the Californian landscape. Her vocabulary of lines, shapes and colors has changed little since then, and yet there are huge variations in mood, texture, composition and material.
