New Old Stock from Discontinued Book Shop 1 Copy Only. New but due to its age, there will be faint page yellowing and abrasion, Not for fussy buyers. This solid monograph is a FIRST EDITION in Phaidon's expanded "Themes and Movements" series, which examines major art movements of the 20th century. The books in the series will follow the same format, each providing a comprehensive survey, extended captions, documents, and primary texts by critics, historians, and theorists. Other Themes and Movements Titles Available (Photo 2) Review For more than 20 years, Gregory Battcock's Minimal Art: A Critical Anthology has been the book on this deceptively simple approach to art-making, which sought to remove any trace of the artist's hand or emotion from the work. (Detractors naturally found it ludicrous that such reductive sculpture, often consisting of no more than a few basic modular units attached to the wall or placed on the floor, generated such a voluminous and dense stream of critical analysis, beginning in the mid-1960s.) Part of Phaidon's Themes and Movements series, Minimalism offers the first straightforward and useful summary of the output and outlook of the artists associated with minimalism in its heyday, as well as its subsequent development into more nuanced visual forms and its relationship to postmodernism. Editor James Meyer is a specialist who has written extensively on Carl Andre, Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, and Sol LeWitt, four of the seminal minimalists (the fifth is Robert Morris). Despite the intellectual thorniness of this art, Meyer avoids the turgidity that marks much of the writing associated with it. Tracing the origins of minimalism primarily to Frank Stella's "Black Paintings" of 1959, Meyer outlines the shifting, often warring definitions of this new kind of art. Once sculptors Andre and Judd had made their mark, there was doubt that painters could be minimalists. Brice Marden and Robert Ryman made the cut because their work was believed to be purely about the process of painting. Interestingly, although this was overwhelmingly a male club, curators also initially embraced the work of several women artists (including Agnes Martin and Anne Truitt) who retained such minimalist no-noes as irregular, handmade marks, color that could be perceived independently of form, and a belief in transcendent meaning. The 141 pages of color and black-and-white photographs (including rare glimpses of early work by some artists) and a generous assembly of texts by such key commentators as Michael Fried, Barbara Rose, Rosalind Krauss, and the artists themselves (including previously unpublished or hard-to-find material) make this volume indispensable for anyone seriously interested in contemporary art. --Cathy Curtis Synopsis This beautifully illustrated book is internationally recognized as the most definitive survey of Minimalism, among the most influential movements in late twentieth-century art. Works and words by the once-maligned Minimalists Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, and Robert Morris are memorialized in this overdue survey, which updates and surpasses Gregory Battcock's popular Minimal Art: A Critical Anthology (1968; Univ. of California, 1995. reprint). First, Meyer (art and critical theory, Emory Univ.) surveys Minimalist sculpture, neon tubes, and geometric patterns created from 1959 onward. Works by two dozen Minimalists are then presented in 300 color and black-and-white reproductions on high-quality paper; the captions are informative, and the book's design and typography are attractive. The last third of the book, called "Documents," offers excerpts of texts and interviews by critics, theorists, historians, and artists themselves, followed by biographies of various participants.
