Art & Abstraction: April 12th
Reading: PDF uploaded to blackboard- This represents the last chapter from a book by Kirk Varnedoe, titled Pictures of Nothing Abstract Art Since Pollock. The book was made to capture a series of Mellon lectures given at the National Gallery of Art in 2003. Acting as head curator of painting and sculpture at MoMA, he also held a professorship at Princeton University. These lectures were devised in response to E.H. Gombrich's highly successful series in 1956, titled, Art and Illusion: A Study in the Psychology of Pictorial Representation. I hope you enjoy!
