Exhibition catalogue for Kenzo Okada (1902-1982) at the Betty Parsons Gallery in New York from March 11-29, 1969. The catalogue features six plates (3 in color), followed by a list of 15 paintings that appeared in the show.

Okada received considerable critical acclaim. John Canaday, the art critic for The New York Times, wrote in 1967: "Mr. Okada practices superlatively a quiet, poetic abstract landscape painting that seems almost old-fashioned nowadays. But for viewers seeking a meditative retreat from works that hop, op, pop, jiggle or rumble, time spent in the presence of these low-keyed canvases should be most rewarding.''

Copies of this exhibition catalogue are scarce to the market.

CONDITION: Some small paint spots to the front cover and spine, light soiling to white areas of the wrappers. Internally clean and bright. A Very Good or better copy. Item #1446
