The publication of Lisa Ruyter: One Million Postcards
(Skarabaeus Press, $26) offers a virtual catalog raisonné of 14 years of Lisa Ruyter’s work. The book has a very October
-magazine-style essay, printed in English and German, by Martin Prinzhorn and an interview with Ruyter, also in both languages, by Michael Cohen. One revelation: Lisa had quit painting at age 28 and was enjoying her work as a publicist (!) when Marilyn Minter forcibly sent her to Peter Halley’s studio to work there.
