Inventing Abstraction, 1910-1925 by Leah Dickerman and Matthew Affron

Details

Inventing Abstraction, published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, celebrates the centennial of this bold new type of artwork. It traces the development of abstraction as it moved through a network of modern artists, from Marsden Hartley and Marcel Duchamp to Piet Mondrian and Kazimir Malevich—sweeping across nations and across media. This richly illustrated publication covers a wide range of artistic production including paintings, drawings, books, sculptures, film, photography, sound poetry, atonal music, and non-narrative dance.
