About this title


Richard Pousette-Dart (1916-1992), one of the founding members of the Abstract Expressionist movement of the 1940s and 1950s, has been creating paintings, drawings, sculpture, and photographs, infused with an intense personal vision, for more than fifty years. This catalog, including 112 color and 42 duotone reproductions is the first comprehensive consideration of this important American artist's multifaceted work.

"... one of the last and most remarkable artists of an extraordinary generation—the Abstract Expressionist painters of the New York School who made their debut in the war years of the 1940’s." —Hilton Kramer, The New York Times

"Well written, literate, visually descriptive, this important and thoroughly scholarly work provides a fascinating exploration of Pousette-Dart's oeuvre and adds to understanding of postwar American modernism. Color plates are generous and of excellent quality. Layout is clean, clear, and readable. Highly recommended." —Choice

From the Inside Flap:

This groundbreaking volume on Richard Pousette-Dart is the most comprehensive publication on his painting to be published since the artist's death. It provides fresh insights into his oeuvre by five outstanding, contemporary art historians, who have interpreted the artist's creative output from the 1930s to 1992.
Richard Pousette-Dart, one of the founding members of the New York School, created paintings, drawings, sculptures, and journals for over sixty years. The youngest member of the first generation of American Abstract Expressionists, Pousette-Dart shared with his fellow artists' interests in psychology, myth-making, anthropology, and both African and American tribal art. Along with Pollock, Rothko, de Kooning, Motherwell, and others, Pousette-Dart created the art movement known as The New York School.
This book presents the evolution of Richard Pousette-Dart's styles and philosophy and provides an in-depth look at his ever-evolving painting techniques. The essays focus on his major themes and periods, and include his contributions to the complexity of the intellectual and stylistic language of the Abstract Expressionist movement.
