LONDON.- Michael Werner Gallery, London is presenting an exhibition of new paintings and works on paper by the eminent American painter Peter Saul (b. 1934). The exhibition coincides with a special limited-edition monograph on Peter Saul. Published by Rizzoli and overseen by Saul himself, it is the first major monograph on the artist and features essays by Los Angeles–based critic Bruce Hainley, renowned art historian Richard Shiff and Annabelle Ténèze, Chief Curator and Director of Les Abattoirs in Toulouse, France.

At 87 years old, Saul continues to make important work that feels urgent to our time. Throughout his over six-decade career, the artist has addressed critical topics of the day with unbridled courage, including American post-war consumerism, the Vietnam War, the trial of Angela Davis, almost every American President from Nixon to Trump, Saddam Hussein, and the art world itself. Shown as a whole, his work documents the history of America in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

Since his first solo exhibition in 1961, Peter Saul’s work has been exhibited throughout the world. His paintings are found in numerous museum collections worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Art Institute of Chicago; Carnegie Museum, Pittsburgh; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Museum Ludwig, Cologne; and Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. Recent important exhibitions include Peter Saul at the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, Pop, Funk, Bad Painting and More at Les Abattoirs in Toulouse and Le Delta in Namur, and his first retrospective in New York, Peter Saul: Crime and Punishment at the New Museum.
