About the book:

Stephanie Busuttil's second book inspired by a color, White takes you on a visual journey, allowing you to recognize white as not just a color but also as an aesthetic and moral value. From snow-topped glaciers to virginal conception. From Duchamp's porcelain urinal to the shrouds of the dead. From the peaceful white of the Zen gardens to the luminous white of Robert Morris. From the pure white of Fontana, Manzoni, LeWitt, Ryman or Twombly to the stained glass of Soulage. This book explores the multiple facets of this color and its relation to religion, the moon, flesh, emptiness and light. White can be perceived in many ways, as negative or positive space, as a background or foreground. A non-color, like the blank page itself, it remains elusive. With over 200 images, Stephanie Busuttil has selected powerful and varied images that all share white as the common factor. Pierre Sterckx, professor at the Beaux-Arts in Paris, introduces the book with an overview of the history of the color and its many incarnations.
