Amy Sherald: The World We Make Book

Excl. tax

The long-awaited first major monograph on Amy Sherald, the iconic portraitist of Black Americans.

This is the first comprehensive monograph on acclaimed painter Amy Sherald, whose distinctive style of simplified realist portraiture features African American subjects rendered against colorful monochrome backdrops or in everyday settings. Sherald rose to fame after being chosen by former first lady Michelle Obama to paint her official portrait for the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC, in 2018, becoming the first African American woman to receive this honor. In addition to reproductions of Sherald’s recent works, the book—published to accompany her solo exhibition at Hauser & Wirth London in fall 2022—includes illustrations of earlier paintings, as well as an intimate glimpse into Sherald’s process and practice through a series of in-studio photographs.

Hardcover, 9.75 x 11.75 in. / 196 pgs / 106 color / 2 bw.

Pub Date 1/17/2023
