About this title:

Synopsis: This series of images from contemporary photographers including Sugimoto and Gursky, and painters including Rothko, Martin, Mondrian and Friedrich, juxtaposes horizontal landscapes with horizontally structured abstract works. Its concentrated selection reveals formal analogies and similarities of both content and effect: the horizontal reads as a synonym for calm, concentration, and transcendental experience.

About the Author: Andreas Gursky was born in 1955 in Leipzig, East Germany, and studied at the prestigious Kunstakademie, Dusseldorf. His first solo gallery show was held at Galerie Johnen & Schottle, Cologne, in 1988. A solo museum exhibition followed the next year, at the Museum Haus Lange, Krefeld. By this time, Gursky was increasing the scale of his photographs, and by the 90s was using the largest photographic paper available; by 2000 he was combining sheets to make images larger still. In the early 1990s Gursky began to use digital technology for retouching and altering negatives, and more recently he has produced work entirely fabricated by computer. Gursky has had recent solo exhibitions at Matthew Marks Gallery, New York, and White Cube, London. A major mid-career retrospective traveled the world in 2001, with U.S. stops at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Mark Rothko was born in Russia in 1903 and emigrated to the United States as a child. He studied at Yale University and the Art Students League in New York. He was a founder of the expressionist group The Ten in 1935. He continued to work and exhibit until his death by suicide in 1970. His work has been shown in solo exhibitions during his lifetime and posthumously at major public institutions throughout the United States and is in most major collections of modern art.

Agnes Martin was born in Saskatchewan, Canada in 1912, and she moved to the United States in 1931. Her first solo exhibition was held in 1958 at the Betty Parsons Gallery, New York. In 1967 she moved to New Mexico and abandoned painting for seven years. The early 1990s saw her work exhibited in solo shows at the Stedelijk Museum, and at the Whitney, New York, and later in the Menil Collection, Houston, in 2002. Martin died in 2004.

Robert Rosenblum is a curator at the Guggenheim Museum and a professor at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. He is the author of multiple volumes on modern and contemporary art, including The Paintings of August Strindberg and Paintings in the Musee d'Orsay. Rosenblum is the recipient of a Frank Jewett Mather Award for Distinction in Art Criticism.
