From Library Journal
Large canvases covered with a single color "zipped" apart by a vertical strip, bold color field paintings with frayed edges, slim columns of steel and hovering pyramidal forms, each providing the viewer with a subjective experience of self and an objective observation of the image: this is the genius of Barnett Newman. With an equally wide range of vision, Zweite offers a scholarly insight into the work, a formidable task quite successfully accomplished in this important volume. Originally published to accompany the first major exhibition of Newman's work in Germany, this is far more than a catalog of works. It is indispensable for anyone interested in understanding one of the major figures in American art of the last half of our century.-Paula Frosch, Metropolitan Museum of Art Lib., New York Copyright 2000 Reed...


Barnett Newman

From Library Journal
Time has served to make the laconic visual language of Barnett Newman (1905-70) ever more enigmatic. While the size of his paintings grants them powerful presence, and they fairly throb with voluble potential, Newman's specific messages remain decidedly unspoken. Temkin, curator at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and Richard Shiff (C‚zanne and the End of Impressionism) do much to give these works a distinct historical voice. They also illuminate Newman himself, the man who, though a forceful figure in the art world, was often eclipsed by his contemporaries Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, and Clyfford Still. Intended to accompany the first retrospective exhibition of Newman's work since the 1970s (at the Philadelphia Museum of Modern Art until this July), the catalog provides a rich reconstruction of Newman's...

Book Description
In April 2002 the Philadelphia Museum of Art held a symposium in conjunction with a major retrospective of the work of Barnett Newman (1905–1970). This volume publishes the proceedings of the event. With contributions from notable specialists in the field, including art historians, museum curators, critics, conservators, and fellow artists, the book pays homage to Newman and sheds new light on his work as a theoretician and innovator.
The essays collected in Rediscovering Barnett Newman discuss the artist’s famous “zip,” his late series of paintings “The Stations of the Cross,” the temporal aspect of his works, his painting technique, and his sculptural oeuvre, among other topics. As a whole, this wide-ranging collection provides new perspectives on one of the...

Will impress readers by the seriousness and thoroughness of its essays.

Review
“This catalogue raisonné definitively presents Newman’s entire oeuvre, from paintings, drawings and sculpture to graphics and architectural models; it also includes examples of unfinished works. . . . Shedding new light on many aspects of Newman’s career, the 736-page volume provides insight into the artistic legacy of this important 20th-century figure.”—Art in America

Review
"This is an excellent book for understanding the post-modern art scene and how the next generation of visual artists might proceed." Tampa Tribune

"Kuspit's view is persuasive...The End of Art didn't make my mind up for me; rather, it opened up room for debate with artist friends and fellow gallery hoppers about the definition of art, whether it can be judged according to a universal standard and where it's going. It made me more aware of my powers of perception and my power as a perceiver, and encouraged me to seek out art that pleases me, for whatever reason." The Nation

The Stations of the Cross

Book Description
From 1958 to 1966, master color field painter Barnett Newman created The Stations of the Cross - Lema Sabachthani, a cycle of fourteen canvas paintings, each of them 5 x 6 1/2 feet. Their scale is so large that the viewer is never able to take them all in at once. With The Stations of the Cross, Newman undertook one of the most demanding assignments in the history of modern art, namely to thematize, without the use of color and only in black and white, the tragedy of human existence vis-à-vis an almighty God--bringing it to new pictorial form. Accompanying texts consider the thematic content of the work, as well as the series' inaugural hanging in 1966 at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Writings on Art

From Publishers Weekly
Rothko's multiform and abstract expressionist paintings make him one of the most important artists of the 20th century. Gathering all of the artist's writings held in public collections as well as texts in Rothko's descendants' hands, this book brings to light many of his theoretical stances, practical considerations and personal revelations. Arranged chronologically from 1934, the year after his first solo show, to 1969, the year before his suicide, the approximately 100 texts consist of letters to curators and to artists like Barnett Newman, Herbert Ferber and Robert Motherwell; notes about his approach to the teaching of art; and writings that explore art as a means of communication. Editor López-Remiro's introduction contextualizes the writings and doubles as a handy chronology of Rothko's life and...

Review
"A welcome addition to the scattered and contradictory information previously published about the New York School, this volume allows the reader to hear directly from many of the musicians and artists who came together in New York during the first half of the 20th century . . . Highly recommended."
–R.L. Wick, University of Colorado at Denver, Choice, September 2002



Book Description
Musicians and artists have always shared mutual interests and exchanged theories of art and creativity. This exchange climaxed just after World War II, when a group of New York-based musicians, including John Cage, Morton Feldman, Earle Brown, and David Tudor, formed friendships with a group of painters. The latter group, now known collectively as either the New York School or the...

Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Originally published in 1975, this collection of Donald Judd's writings is a sought-after classic. His uncompromising reviews avoid the familiar generalizations so often associated with artistic styles emerging during the 1950s and 60s. Here, Judd discusses in detail the work of more than 500 artists showing in New York at that time, and provides a critical account of this significant era in American art. While addressing the social and political ramifications of art production, the writings focus on the work of Jackson Pollock, Kasimir Malevich, Barnett Newman, Ad Reinhardt, John Chamberlain, Larry Poons, Kenneth Noland, and Claes Oldenburg. His 1965 "Specific Objects" essay, discussions of sculptural thought in the 60s, is included as well as Judd's notorious polemical essay, "Imperialism, Nationalism, Regionalism." ...
