This review is from: Inventing Abstraction 1910-1925: How a Radical Idea Changed Modern Art (Hardcover)
This is a beautifully illustrated book. Its greatest strength is in covering just 15 years of this subject. It surveys a broad variety of artists with succinct essays, which are excellent tasters for further, in-depth research. A superb addition for anyone interested in the studying the early foundations of abstraction in painting, sculpture, design and lens-based media. Also a comprehensive springboard for practitioners who believe that the modernist ideology did not die, but still has much to offer our understanding of Arts' place in society.
