"Discussing more than a hundred years of art history, "Monochromes: From Malevich to the Present" is a lavish visual journey through some of the most iconic and visually stunning works of twentieth-century art. It offers very clear and understandable interpretations of an important and little understood artistic movement with international scope, and presents a cogent argument for the centrality of the monochrome to modern art. Historical survey, theoretical examination, illustrated chronicle, and aesthetic exploration-the four main texts-offer a thorough and fascinating account of this major artistic trend, tracing its evolution from its origins in revolutionary Russia to its numerous and diverse manifestations throughout the world."--Terry Berne, cultural critic for "Art in America"
