A love of color has driven Reinhard Ernst’s activities as an art collector for the past thirty years. Dazzled by Color offers a lavishly illustrated overview of 160 artworks from his collection, including exceptional abstract expressionist paintings from Europe, Japan, and the United States.

The more than 130 artists represented in this book include Katharina Grosse, Robert Motherwell, Jackson Pollock, Kazuo Shiraga, Pierre Soulages, Frank Stella, and Atsuko Tanaka. Particular focus is paid to Hubert Berke and Helen Frankenthaler, Japanese artists from the Gutai group, and the practitioners of and successors to the art informel movement. In all, the extraordinary collection boasts art from the postwar period up to the present day.

The Museum Reinhard Ernst in Wiesbaden, Germany, designed by star architect Fumihiko Maki and currently slated to open in 2021, will soon showcase Ernst’s collection of abstract expressionist art. This book offers a tantalizing early glimpse of the exhibition—with two hundred color plates and engaging commentary, Dazzled by Color will heighten anticipation by bringing a taste of the museum experience to readers wherever they may be.
