Published in conjunction with the Bridget Riley: The Stripe Paintings 1961–2012 exhibition at Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin, key paintings and studies of Riley's stripe works are collected for the first time. This well-illustrated title demonstrates how Riley reguarly returned to this seemingly simple pictorial device to achieve complex, surprising results.


The volume includes full-colour illustrations alongside important texts by John Elderfield and Paul Moorhouse – in both English and German – which situate these exhiliarating works within the artist's ouevre and a broader art historical context.
