By Kelly Baum, Andrea Bayer, and Sheena Wagstaff

This remarkable book explores the evolving notion of unfinishedness, both intentional and accidental, and argues that it is essential to understanding art movements from the Renaissance to the present. Featuring more than 200 works created in a variety of media, by artists ranging from Leonardo, Titian, Rembrandt, Turner, and Czanne to Picasso, Warhol, Twombly, Freud, Richter, and Nauman, this catalogue unites far- reaching works through their unfinished aspects. Interviews with contemporary artists such as Tuymans, Celmins, and Marden demonstrate that this theme continues to be a driving force and inspiration for artists working today.

Andrea Bayer is Jayne Wrightsman Curator in the Department of European Paintings, Kelly Baum is curator, and Sheena Wagstaff is Leonard A. Lauder Chairman, both in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art, at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
