This first monograph of paintings by Romain de Plas arrives nine years after his untimely death. The seventy reproduced works reveal the progression from de Plas's earliest mature paintings to the fullflowering of his talent as he reached his early thirties. Written contributions by Agnes Gund, David Frankel, and Michael Whittaker Martin, along with a recently discovered interview with the artist himself, place the work within a broader cultural context while revealing de Plas's unique personal history. The book is available for purchase at The Museum of the City of New York, Archivia Books, and Amazon.
