Kelly Baum, Haskell Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, and Preston H. Haskell ‘60 will be available to sign copies of Rothko to Richter: Mark-Making in Abstract Painting from the Collection of Preston H. Haskell. Published by the Princeton University Art Museum, this richly illustrated publication features twenty-seven paintings by some of the most important American and European artists of the mid- to late twentieth century, and serves as a window into the evolution of process, mark-making, and abstraction between 1950 and 1990.

Following the book signing, Pulitzer Prize–winning author and art critic Mark Stevens ’73 discusses the collecting of modern and contemporary art with Preston H. Haskell ’60 in conjunction with the exhibition Rothko to Richter: Mark-Making in Abstract Painting from the Collection of Preston H. Haskell. A reception in the galleries will follow.
