Published in conjunction with the exhibition "Enrico Donati: Prima Materia" at the Weinstein Gallery in San Francisco from February 20 to April 9, 2016. From essay: "Enrico's artistic career is one of the very few real-life examples of the shift in the art world from Surrealism in Paris to Abstract Expressionism in mid-century New York. It is our hope the exhibition and this recent scholarship will provide viewers an opportunity to rediscover this artist and consider these paintings and sculptures, not just for their importance as works of art, but for their significance in the context of the historical period in which they were created."
