Summary "Literary Nonfiction. Art. Award-winning journalist, artist, and educator Patricia Rosoff offers a first-hand tour of the sometimes shocking, often challenging ideas and approaches that continue to fuel the art of today. Rosoff describes the sources of contemporary painting, sculpture, photography, and mixed media in the works of such radicals as Monet, Kandinsky, and Joseph Cornell, who are now part of the tradition but who keep on catalyzing experimental innovators such as Ellen Carey, Spencer Finch, Janine Antoni, and Iñigo Manglano-Ovale. With close (and sympathetic) consideration of conceptualists, including works by Sol LeWitt and Mierle Ukeles, and with special excitement about the inexhaustible potential in abstract art, Pat Rosoff is the gallery or museum guide you've always wished to have along"-- Provided by publisher
"Contemporary painting, sculpture, photography, and mixed media have sources in the works of such radicals as Monet, Kandinsky, and Cornell, who are now part of the official tradition but who continue to catalyze artistic innovation, especially among conceptual and abstract artists"-- Provided by publisher
