Very Good. No Dj. Folio, near fine, no prints in pocket. The painter and the world we never see. Whistler's Mother is appealing from abstract elements as well as the subject; the abstract element there is the arrangement of the various objects in the picture areas. Whistler called it "arrangement in gray and black". Renoir's portrait of his wife reduced natural form to geometrical equivalents of ovals and cylinders. Picasso goes further and get really abstract and revolutionizes painting. Emotional expression by Mondrian, Kadinsky, Turner and others are discussed and illustrated.
Very Good. No Dj. Folio, near fine, with framable prints in pocket at front and notes from publisher. Abstract painting is the most puzzling and infuriating kind of modern art. We are often unable to identify the lines, angles, shapes and colors of abstract art with anything we know and recognize. It may seem meaningless at first. But it is not. It is meaningful in other terms--line, shape and space...Here you will see how this is crucial to all paintings, traditional and modern. Plates of paintings, framable, in pocket at front of book.
