Editorial Reviews

Review

'Absorbing and illuminating collection of essays - should appeal to all scholars of contemporary art.' de Arte

Book Description

Includes seminal essays on abstract painting by eleven of its most incisive critics that trace the development of such critical issues as hard-edge painting, deductive and serial structure, monochrome abstraction, the psychological analogy, regionalism, and the "death of painting" in Postmodernism. The introduction and commentary by Frances Colpitt situates the essays historically and examines their philosophical sources and influences, from formalism and phenomenology, to structuralism and poststructuralism. What emerges is a coherent and optimistic picture of abstract painting, the definitive contribution of modern art.

I bought this book to go along with a class that Dr Colpitt was teaching. It was an excellent read and supplement to any modern/contemporary class.

4 of 7 people found the following review helpful By GiovanniGF on October 29, 2006
Format: Paperback
A great selection of critical essays about Post-War abstraction, ranging from the introduction of hard-edged abstraction to the post-Post Modern pluralism of the late 90s. Also serves as an interesting study of the academic concerns of the past four decades.
