Bridget Riley: The Stripe Paintings 1961–2014

New David Zwirner Publication

Published on the occasion of Riley's exhibition at David Zwirner, London, this fully illustrated catalogue offers explorations of paintings and works on paper produced by the artist over the past 50 years, focusing specifically on her recurrent use of the stripe motif.


A range of texts about Riley’s original and enduring practice grounds and contextualizes the images, including new scholarship by Richard Shiff, an interview from 1978 with Robert Kudielka, and an essay on the artist’s wall paintings by Paul Moorhouse.

Additionally, the book features little-seen archival imagery of Riley at work over the years; documentation of her recent commissions for St. Mary’s Hospital in West London, taken especially for this publication; and installation views of the London exhibition itself.


Bridget Riley will be signing copies of the book at the David Zwirner Books stand at the London Art Book Fair on Friday, 26 September, 3pm.

To RSVP, please contact Electra Soutzoglou.
