About the Authors
  • These essays on abstract painting by eleven of its most incisive critics 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.

    • Analyzes contemporary abstract painting from critical and philosophical perspectives
    • Includes major essays by well-known critics covering critical developments in abstraction since 1959
    • Surveys a broad range of issues of abstraction in the second half of the twentieth century
