Book Description
Over the past three decades, private collectors Peter and Rosemarie Ruppert have amassed an enormous range of works focused on the definition of concrete art as an aesthetic form that stands only for itself, and not for an abstracted or symbolic representation of the visually perceptible. Taken together, the works serve to illustrate the expansion and development of concrete art throughout Europe from 1945 to the present. The collection, featuring more than 240 works by 171 artists from 22 countries, includes paintings of geometric forms and pure colors by Victor Vasarely, Josef Albers, and Max Bill, early computer art by Manfred Mohr, virtual sculptures by Gerhard Mantz, and recent works of concrete photography. Essays by Dietmar Gaderian, Serge Lemoine, Hella Nocke-Schrepper and Margit Weinberg-Staber. Hardcover,...
