This massive 288 page monograph includes over 250 color plates and is published to accompany an exhibit of Mitchell Johnson's paintings at the Bakersfield Museum of Art in 2015 as well as several San Francisco exhibitions. Essays written by Alexander Nemerov, Jennifer Samet, John Seed, John Goodrich, Claude Pichevin, Marilena Pasquali, Sofie Filt Læntver and Peter Campion establish a context for Johnson's color and shape driven work. The book also includes a 2009 interview by Art Historian Peter Selz from the Smithsonian Archives of American Art. Numerous color reproductions of paintings by Bonnard, Vuillard, Morandi and Josef Albers explore Corot's relationship to Modernism and contemporary painting and suggest a separate branch to 20th century art history as first identified by Fairfield Porter.
