Beyond Geometry: Experiments in Form, 1940s-70s, Zelevansky, Lynn
21 Zelevansky, Lynn Beyond Geometry: Experiments in Form, 1940s-70s
Los Angeles/Cambridge Los Angeles County Museum of Art/The MIT Press (c.2004) 0-262-24047-5 / 9780262240475 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ 
(silver paper-covered boards; no dust jacket, as issued) [minor bumping to a couple of corners, shallow dents at bottom edges of both covers, general light surface wear to covers]. The book, and the art exhibit it was published to accompany, look "at the history of post-World War II abstract art, examining the role of radically simplified form and systematic strategies in vanguard work from Central and Western Europe and North and South America. An essay rather than a survey, [the exhibition/book] tracks parallels, intersections, and divergences in the evolution of what, by the late 1960s, had become an expansive international discourse. At the same time, it questions the precedence often given to U.S. minimalism in previous accounts of the period." Includes contributions by: Valerie L. Hillings, Miklos Peternak, Brandon LaBelle, Peter Frank, Ines Katzenstein and Aleca Le Blanc.

The Art of Mark Strickland, {Mark Strickland} Gilbert, B.R., ed.
23 {Mark Strickland} Gilbert, B.R., ed. The Art of Mark Strickland
Sierra Madre CA Art Works Fine Art Publishing, Inc. 2011 061548106X / 9780615481067 First Edition Hardcover Fine in Fine dj 
[book and jacket both in flawless condition; clear plastic jacket overlay shows a bit of scuffing]. (color art reproductions) "A figural classicist at heart, Strickland is an immensely gifted and versatile artist, comfortable with epic narrative, yet equally capable of producing work synergistically informed by the immediacy of its incongruent opposite -- gestural abstraction. Straddling High Expressionism and New Traditionalism, Strickland's work conveys a perspective filtered through a prism of humanitarian force and emotional intensity." Introductino by Peter Clothier. ***Additional shipping charges for this heavy book will apply for non-U.S. customers; please inquire before placing your order.***
