Diego Rivera, Dorothea Lange, Adolfo Pérez Esquivel: Art and activism have long been intertwined, and the political fallout has resulted in an artistic canon riddled with historical holes. One of the most glaring omissions from most listings of American art masters is Ad Reinhardt (1913–67). An artist who had significant ties to the American Communist movement and leftist political organizations, Reinhardt and his contributions to modern art have been largely pushed out of the spotlight for political reasons. But in this unprecedented in-depth study of Reinhardt’s life and work, Michael Corris returns the artist to his rightful place in the history of modern art and culture.
A pioneering avant-garde artist with fierce political beliefs, Reinhardt immersed himself in the vibrant left-wing political and cultural circles of the 1930s and ’40s, only to be marginalized by the social and cultural conservatism that arose in postwar America. Corris examines Reinhardt’s work against this historical background, charting the development of his entire oeuvre, ranging from his abstract paintings to his popular graphic artwork, illustrations and cartoons. Ad Reinhardt also re-evaluates Reinhardt’s role and influence in the art world, chronicling his time as an artist and educator at the California School of Fine Arts, University of Wyoming, Yale University, and Hunter College, and examining his influence on younger artists who created successive avant-garde movements such as minimal and conceptual art.
A long-awaited examination of a less-heralded American master, Ad Reinhardt is a fascinating portrait of an artist whose political radicalism infused his art with a poignant resonance that stretches, through this rediscovery, into the present.

About the Author:

Michael Corris is professor of fine art at the Art and Design Research Centre at Sheffield Hallam University. He is editor of Conceptual Art: Theory, Myth, and Practice and coauthor of David Diao: Works, 1969–2005. He was a member of the conceptual art group Art & Language in New York in the 1970s.

Review:

“Because of his background as a conceptual artist, designer, and art historian, Michael Corris is wonderfully equipped to undertake a thoroughgoing art historical analysis of Reinhardt’s work, and he does so with great sensitivity and thoughtful analysis, employing a wide-angle lens that takes into consideration Reinhardt’s forays in the areas of popular and fine art as well as politics and culture.” (Robert Hobbs, Virginia Commonwealth University 2007-09-01)

Book Description Reaktion Books, United Kingdom, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Born in Buffalo, New York, Ad Reinhardt (1913 - 1967) was a highly influential pioneer of conceptual and minimal art. His influence as teacher, writer, activist and critic was as significant as his art - Reinhardt taught at Brooklyn College from 1947 to 1967, and during this time also lectured at the California School of Fine Arts, the University of Wyoming, Yale University and Hunter College, New York. In latter times Ad Reinhardt has largely fallen out of the spotlight, and in this much-needed book Michael Corris gives a comprehensive account of the artist s life, works and contributions to modern art. An artist with definite political beliefs, Ad Reinhardt immersed himself in the vibrant left-wing political and cultural circles of the 1930s and 40s, only to find himself marginalized by the social and cultural conservatism that arose in postwar America. Corris examines Reinhardt s art in this historical context, tracking the development of his entire oeuvre, ranging from his abstract paintings to his popular graphic artwork, which took the form of illustrations and cartoons. Ad Reinhardt also evaluates Reinhardt s role in the art world as younger artists created successive avant-garde movements, such as Minimal and Conceptual art, and the impact his political beliefs ultimately had on his reputation and reception in the art world. This long-awaited book is a major contribution not only to Reinhardt scholarship, but also to the history of contemporary art in America. Seller Inventory # AAS9781861893567
