Synopsis:

The enigmatic and charismatic John Graham (1886?1961) was an important influence on his fellow New York artists in the 1920s through 1940s. Graham and his circle, which included Stuart Davis, Arshile Gorky, and Willem de Kooning, helped redefine ideas of what painting and sculpture could be. They, along with others in Graham's orbit, such as Jackson Pollock and David Smith, played a critical role in developing and defining American modernism. American Vanguards showcases about eighty-seven works of art from this vital period that demonstrate the interconnections, common sources, and shared stimuli among the members of Graham's circle.

Three essays by notable scholars investigate the complex relationships among Graham and his New York artist-colleagues during this formative period. William C. Agee positions Graham and his circle within the movement of New Classicism, which drew upon classical and Renaissance examples in an attempt to overcome the devastation of World War I. Irving Sandler focuses on the social, political, and intellectual dynamics among Davis, Gorky, Graham, and de Kooning in the mid-1930s. Karen Wilkin discusses the circumstances that brought these artists together, their common commitment to modernism, and the fascinating artistic cross-fertilization evident in their work. This critical reconsideration sheds new light on the New York School, Abstract Expressionism, and the vitality of American modernism between the two world wars.

About the Author: William C. Agee is Evelyn Kranes Kossak Professor of Art History at Hunter College. Irving Sandler and Karen Wilkin are distinguished independent curators, scholars, and critics.

Book Description Der charismatische Künstler und Kunsttheoretiker John Graham (1886-1961) hatte von den 1920er bis zu den frühen 1940er Jahren einen immensen Einfluss auf seine New Yorker Kollegen, so beispielsweise auf Arshile Gorky, Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner und David Smith: Graham spielte eine entscheidende Rolle bei der Entwicklung der originär nordamerikanischen Moderne. Das vorliegende Buch präsentiert 87 Gemälde, Zeichnungen und Skulpturen aus dieser wegweisenden Periode, darunter selten gesehene, frühe Werke, die in ihrer Zusammenschau Beziehungen, gemeinsame Quellen und Inspirationen offenbar werden lassen. Die Autoren verdeutlichen die Bedeutung John Grahams, der bisher zu Unrecht im Schatten seiner weitaus berühmteren Protegées stand. (Text engl.) 24,5 x 30 cm, 242 S., 123 farb. und 11 s/w-Abb., Leinen. Bookseller Inventory # 688703
