Little is known about Walter Leblanc (1932–1986), one of the key representatives of kinetic and optical art in the mid-20th century. This comprehensive monograph, the first on this artist for an international audience, includes unpublished materials, which provide insight not only into the art of LeBlanc, but also into the ZERO artist movement to which he was connected and with which he was in close dialogue beginning in the 1950s. Walter Leblanc is based on extensive studies of the artist’s work: with about 150 images of his paintings and sculptures, comparative works, historical photos and documents, it includes a selection of Leblanc’s writings, an iconographic mapping of selected works in museums around the world, and a bio-bibliographical appendix. Demonstrating the wealth of his creative output, the book reaffirms the enduring role Leblanc played in the development of modern and contemporary art on a global scale.

Francesca Pola is a historian and critic of contemporary art, and professor at the Università Cattolica in Milan and at Northwestern University in Chicago.
