Book Description

22 Aug 1994
Harold Rosenberg was undoubtedly the most important American art critic of the twentieth century. It was he who first coined the term "Action Painters" to refer to the American Abstract Expressionists such as Pollock, Kline, and de Kooning. Rosenberg's seminal writings on this movement, as well as on other artists such as Newman and Rothko, appear in The Tradition of the New (1959), his first and most influential book; its effects on subsequent art criticism, and the practice of art itself, are still felt today. The essays in this book are not limited to the art world, however: He also discusses poetry, political and cultural theory, and popular culture. As wide-ranging, independent, and deeply probing as the essays of Walter Benjamin, Harold Rosenberg's The Tradition of the New is a true classic of twentieth-century criticism.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent criticism 30 Oct 2006
By GiovanniGF - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I was surprised at how well these essays held up, and what a terrific writer Rosenberg was. Very witty as well, and not nearly as portentous as his better-remembered rival Clement Greenberg.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book of advised reference! 24 Nov 2005
By Hiram Gomez Pardo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In the last Century, the art has ran vertiginously from vanguard in vanguard, in frank rupture not only with the tradition, but also with every movement immediately anterior. Rosenberg scrutinizes the different tendencies and besides, makes a itemized analysis about the form and expression around several issues; painting, literature, social behavior, conventionalisms, in a mesmerizing account of the most representative expressions and protagonists.

A fundamental book, that, despite its years, maintains actual interest.
