Description

A native of Sumter, South Carolina, Robert Courtright had an intense, artistic interest in exploring other worlds beyond the Palmetto State's borders. This curiosity led him all around the world, where his collages and masks were eventually exhibited in galleries and museums. Robert Courtright: Collages, Collage Constructions and Masks, 1953-2008 is an in-depth catalogue of work focusing on the art of one of South Carolina's most internationally-recognised visual artists. When Courtright moved to Rome in 1953, he began creating collages using found paper and printed text. This medium provided him the unique ability to capture images of architecture of ancient and historic cities, which are reflected in his work. This illustrated catalogue displays Courtright's ability to combine the texture of time with the weathered corrosion of paper, which offers a unique quality to the creation of his architectural collages. This book features approximately seventy of Courtright's works. This survey of Courtright's work will captivate and inspire with pieces ranging from rarely seen collages to his most recent constructions.
