Very Good. Quarto in dust jacket, 59 pp. Foreword by Hugh M. Davis. With the article "Breath of Air, Breath of Stone, " by Pier Luigi Tazzi. Kapoor's minimalism is both physical and purist. This humble volume tries to match that aesthetic. Kapoor was born in Mumbai to a Hindu father and Baghdadi Jewish mother. It was during his time in Israel as a young man that he decided to become an artist. There is no attempt that I am familiar with to relate the artists origins to his body of work.
