Divided into three sections, the writings reveal Riley’s relationship to different topics over time, including the term ‘abstract’; the influence of Georges Seurat and Paul Cézanne; the role of colour and painting throughout art history; the importance of perception and much more.


The book includes interviews with preeminent art historians such as David Sylvester, Mel Gooding and Lynne Cooke, as well as in-depth studies of other artists: Piet Mondrian, Bruce Nauman and Georges Seurat.
