Uniquely situated outside the mediums of painting and sculpture, the majority of Flavin's work after 1963 consists of art made from light.

This landmark book - the first retrospective publication of Flavin's art since 1969 - includes around 45 of the artist's most important light works, beginning with a pivotal series of constructed boxes with attached incandescent or fluorescent lights, called "icons," made from 1961 to 1963. Works spanning Flavin's career are discussed in depth, including examples that integrate light with the surrounding space and show the particular characteristics of blended fluorescent light, large-scale installations, and constructed corridors. The book also includes reproductions of Flavin's drawings, which show his thought processes and working methods. New scholarship and interpretation of Flavin's work appears in the form of three critical essays by experts, an extensive chronology, comprehensive bibliography, and exhibition history. In addition, Flavin's seminal text ". . . in daylight or cool white." an autobiographical sketch," originally published in Artforum in 1965, is included.

Exquisitely designed and produced, with many new stunning color reproductions, Dan Flavin: A Retrospective captures the brilliance of this artist's contribution to and challenges of the art world and will be the authoritative volume on Flavin for years to come. This book is published in conjunction with a major exhibition on view at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. (October 3, 2004 to January 9, 2005); Museum of Modern Art, Forth Worth (February 25 to June 5, 2005); Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (July 1 to October 30, 2005).

The years 1955-1965 saw artists wreaking havoc with the parameters of painting. If Abstract Expressionists had proposed art as the manipulation of paint on a flat plane, the American artist Dan Flavin further refined art as the manipulation of light itself.
