John Hoyland: The Last Paintings | Author: Natalie Adamson

In the decade before his death in 2011, John Hoyland began to reckon with mortality. Confronting his own demise, he painted elegies to departed artist friends and tributes to illustrious artistic forebears. Imagery of the void looms large, but it is a void faced with defiance and vitality, less a rumination on the end than a celebration of life.

This publication explores the paintings Hoyland made in this decade, including his final series, the Mysteries. Richly illustrated, the book extends our understanding of Hoyland's late work within the story of modern painting as a whole.
