"Thanks to art, instead of seeing a single world, our own, we see it multiply until we have before us as many worlds as there are original artists."
I really like this, and it is new to me. Thanks.
Clem Greenberg called first Hans Hofmann and then Kenneth Noland to be 'the greatest colourist after Matisse'...I really think that this definition suits better just on Frankenthaler (who invented the definition of nothing but 'colour field'!!) An issue, for Martha: as you're a very expert of this time there's a paul serusier's 1888 painting called 'talisman' (Paris, Musee d'Orsay) that seems to be the first production that I can remember of a complete abstract intention in a painting... upon your experience, are there the conditions to pull the birthline of abstraction back of 20 years before Kandinsky's watercolours (keeping also in mind the coeve Denis' theorical words regarding figuration/abstraction ?
Looks like Michele just gave me tomorrow's YDA - we'll pick this back-up then.Thank you for the compliment but I am no where near an expert, I am what is termed a "generalist" -heavy on British Victorian.Martha
