Art In America 1945 1970 Writings From The Age Of Abstract Expressionism Pop A. Experience the creative explosion that transformed American art, in the words of the artists, writers, and critics who were there: In the quarter century after the end of World War II, a new generation of painters, sculptors, and photographers transformed the face of American art and shifted the center of the art world from Paris to New York. Signaled by the triumph of abstraction and the ascendancy of painters such as Pollock, Rothko, de Kooning, and Kline, this revolution generated an exuberant and contentious body of writing without parallel in our cultural history. In the words of editor Jed Perl, “there has never been a period when the visual arts have been written about with more mongrel energy—with more unexpected mixtures of reportage, rhapsody, analysis, advocacy, editorializing, and philosophy.” Perl has gathered the best of this writing together for the first time, interwoven with fascinating headnotes that establish the historical background, the outsized personalities of the artists and critics, and the nature of the aesthetic battles that defined the era. Here are statements by the most significant artists, and major critical essays by Clement Greenberg, Susan Sontag, Hilton Kramer, and other influential figures. Here too is an electrifying array of responses by poets and novelists, reflecting the free interplay between different art forms: John Ashbery on Andy Warhol, James Agee on Helen Levitt, James Baldwin on Beauford Delaney, Truman Capote on Richard Avedon, Tennessee Williams on Hans Hofmann, Jack Kerouac on Robert Frank. The atmosphere of the time comes to vivid life in memoirs, diaries, and journalism by Peggy Guggenheim, Dwight Macdonald, Calvin Tomkins, and others. Lavishly illustrated with scores of black-and-white images and a 32-page color insert, this is a book that every art lover will treasure.

Jasper Johns. At the pinnacle of Abstract Expressionism, then 24-year-old Jasper Johns covered an entire canvas with a painted version of the American flag, and altered postwar American art forever. In just one work, a work which hung on the wall both like any other flag and like any other abstract painting, Johns had summed up the positions of Abstract Expressionism and European Concrete Art, and had pointed the way for both geometric hard-edge painting and American Pop Art. Nevertheless, Johns cannot be reduced to this one, iconic artwork. With a view toward revealing the complexity and grace of his oeuvre, this book presents oil and object paintings, and drawings from the estate of the artist, and allows a focused view onto the pictorial workshop and world of ideas of Jasper Johns.

Modern Art At The Berlin Wall. The proximity and shared history of East and West Germany has made Berlin an endlessly fascinating site of the Cold War. Here Claudia Mesch uncovers the dynamic history of art produced in divided Germany, and presents a new picture of the Cold War border between East and West as a dynamic and international cultural space._x000D_ _x000D_ At the end of World War II, both Germanies faced the common problem of recovering and redefining modern art - museum buildings lay in ruins and Nazi confiscations and plunder had decimated every major public collection of modern art. A wide group of artists, American, Jewish and German, struggled to take visual art beyond the crude separations of the ‘Iron Curtain’, and to transcend the first global cultural divide of the twentieth century. The group included Joseph Beuys, Allan Kaprow, Gerhard Richter, Carolee Schneemann, Ed Kienholz, Yvonne Rainer, Jörg Immendorff and Nam June Paik. Their artwork engaged critically with imposed national and global identities, and with issues of memory and trauma that is far less known than official memorials and ‘counter-memorials’ to World War II. Mesch analyzes artworks across a number of different mediums including performance, painting and film, and also how some of these artworks were disseminated on television. _x000D_ _x000D_ Artists refashioned West Berlin as a center for avant-garde art that was constantly renewed by a stream of Eastern defectors and Western visitors. They forcefully contested the absolute demarcation of socialist and capitalist ideology forwarded by each state’s art institutions, yet both seemed struck by amnesia about the vast trauma of World War II and the Holocaust. Mesch tracks major East and West German debates around modernism, and uncovers for the first time the existence of a critical socialist modernism in the former Soviet Bloc, practiced in East Germany by artists such as Manfred Butzmann, Wolfgang Mattheuer, A.R. Penck, and the artists’ group Clara Mosch. An epilogue considers the recurring issues of cultural division and memory as they have been addressed in major artworks created in the united Berlin during the 1990s, including Peter Eisenman’s ‘Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe’. _x000D_ _x000D_ ‘‘Around the Berlin Wall’ presents a new chapter in the history of modern art in considering the cultural struggles of artists as they coped with the wide-scale trauma of World War II and the global ideological divide of the Cold War era. It challenges the perception that an absolute cultural separation existed between the capitalist West and the communist Soviet Bloc. With penetrating insights into the cultural coordination of new national identities and modernism’s many legacies, this book is indispensable for all those interested in art history, modernism, the Cold War and the cultural history of the twentieth century.
