First Edition, so stated. Near Fine in Near Fine DJ: Both book and DJ show only minute indications of use. Book shows just a hint of shelf-soiling along the bottom edge of the black cloth over boards; two small coffee-like stains at the fore-edge; the binding shows barely discernible lean, but remains perfectly secure; text clean. The DJ shows only the mildest rubbing; the price remains unclipped; mylar-protected. Overall, while no longer pristine, this book is structurally sound and tightly bound, showing barely discernible wear and a single small flaw: very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 236pp. Edited by Barbara Rose. Liberally illustrated with photographs in black & white. (The Documents of 20th-Century Art Series, Edited by Robert Motherwell). Hardback with DJ. Ad Reinhardt was the epitome of the late modernist painter. He polished his craft and his concept until it was air tight and nearly impervious to criticism. Though we can deny that his paintings are the 'last paintings, ' we cannot deny that they altered the course of modern art. Nor that they are sublime, spiritual, human accomplishments. Reinhardt...remains an urgently contemporary figure in art and the life of art. He has already been a major subterranean influence in the generation of Minimal and Post-Minimal art, and seems ready for wide recognition as one of the most significant cultural figures of the past quarter-century. This writing shines a light in the darkness that is Ad Reinhardt. Though especially useful for a Reinhardt scholar or enthusiast, the writings will enlighten any painter or student of twentieth century art. How far can an artist go into the furnace of self discovery? How much of a painting is truth and how much seduction? Open these pages and discover the answers to these questions and many others. "Dark within dark; the gateway to all understanding."--Tao te Ching.
artist and art historian Reinhardt coments in essay, poetry, and tweets!!! way before the electronic age. One of mid-20th most influential artists, possibly father of conceptual art, the guy who did the Black Paintings everyone likes to joke about, but no joke to 20th c. artists.
