From Publishers Weekly
Piet Mondrian, the painter of architectonic grids who seemed to reject nature, had early on steeped himself in the study of landscapes and flowers. His haunting pictures of farms, windmills and factories treat nature as a dynamic interplay of forces. Influenced by Helena Blavatsky's Theosophical movement, the fastidious Dutch artist of strict Calvinist upbringing turned to mystical introspection, producing symbolist images like Dying Sunflower (1908). After experimenting with pointillist color and spare seascapes, Mondrian, who believed he had been reincarnated many times, moved to Paris and discovered cubism, which helped him to depict the underlying rhythm and structure of what he saw. From there it seems but a hop to Broadway Boogie-Woogie (1943). Milner ( Vladimir Tatlin and the Russian Avant-Garde ) has...

From Library Journal
Schapiro (emeritus, art history, Columbia Univ.) here repackages two of his notable essays on Piet Mondrian and abstract painting. In "On the Humanity of Abstract Painting" (1960), the author defends this art form as containing expressive qualities and intellectual power while disavowing that abstractionism is cold and detached. In "Mondrian: Order and Randomness in Abstract Painting" (1978), he explores and analyses in depth the artist's most notable works from "The Red Mill" to "Broadway Boogie-Woogie" in relation to Bonnard, Degas, Monet, Pissaro, and Seurat. This essay also includes a comparison to a computer-generated variation made in 1964 by physicist Michael Noll in Mondrian's artistic style. Based on lectures, both of these essays have already appeared in Modern Art: 19th & 20th Centuries (Braziller,...


Math-Terpieces: The Art of Problem-Solving

From School Library Journal
Grade 1-5-In his fifth visual math adventure, Tang uses the artwork of 12 famous painters as an aid in developing problem-solving skills through grouping. Each spread features a quality reproduction on the left side. The poem underneath it highlights an item in the picture and presents a math query. For example, on the spread titled "Dancing Shoes," illustrated with Edgar Degas's Ballet Rehearsal on Stage, readers are asked to combine the colorful pictures of varying numbers of ballet shoes on the opposite page into several groups of seven. ("Can you make 7 with these SHOES?/THREE clever ways earn rave reviews!") Clearly written solutions to these exercises are given at the end of the book along with art definitions and brief explanations. This math-concept book is far more appealing than most.Nancy A....

Mondrian: The Transatlantic Paintings
Harry Cooper

May 2001
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Just before World War II, Piet Mondrian fled from Paris to London and later to New York, where he lived until his death in 1944. Upon his arrival in Manhattan, the artist began reworking seventeen of the paintings he brought with him, many of which had already been finished and exhibited. He changed lines and added blocks and bars of color to give them what he called "more boogie-woogie." In this groundbreaking book, Harry Cooper, an authority on Mondrian's art, and Ron Spronk, an expert on the technical examination of paintings, investigate the artist's so- called transatlantic paintings and his unusual working method during this period. Their collaboration offers an intimate look into the studio of one of the greatest modern artists and establishes a new model for the integration of art history, theory, and...

"There is in the work of Kertész a sense of the sweetness of life, a free and childlike pleasure in the beauty of the world and the preciousness of sight."--John Szarkowski, Looking at Pictures


Symbolist Aesthetics and Early Abstract Art: Sites of Imaginary Space
Dee Reynolds
0521619351
February 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This book presents an innovative analysis of the role of imagination as a central concept in both literary and art criticism. Dee Reynolds brings this approach to bear on works by Rimbaud, Mallarmé, Kandinsky, and Mondrian. It allows her to redefine the relationship between Symbolism and abstract art, and to contribute new methodological perspectives to comparative studies of poetry and painting. The late nineteenth and early twentieth century was a crucial period in the emergence of new modes of representation, and is currently at the forefront of critical enquiry. This is the first book to examine Symbolism and abstraction in this way, and the first to treat these poets and painters together. It is an original contribution to interdisciplinary scholarship in art history, literary history, and comparative...
