Stefan Sulzer - The Day My Mother Touched Robert Ryman


The book by Stefan Sulzer tells the story of a visit by the author’s mother to the Dia Art Foundation in Beacon, NY, to see Ryman’s white paintings on display. Once there, the mother felt so offended by the elegant, simplicity of Ryman’s paintings, that she slowly, but in a focused manner let her hand slide across one of the paintings. Stefan Sulzer combines this story with statements and information about Ryman’s work to create a selective and poetic narration of the analytic and emotional reception of art.
