This now classic study maps the profound effect of primitive
art on modern, as well as the primitivizing strain in modern art
itself. Robert Goldwater describes how and why works by primitive
artists attracted modern painters and sculptors, and he delineates
the differences between what is truly primitive or archaic and what
intentionally embodies such elements. His analysis distinguishes
the romanticism of Gauguin; an emotional primitivism exemplified by
the Brucke and Blaue Reiter groups in Germany; the intellectual
primitivism of Picasso and Modigliani; and a "primitivism of the
subconscious" in Miro, Klee, and Dali. Two of Goldwater's related
essays--"Judgments of Primitive Art, 1905-1965" and "Art History
and Anthropology"--have been added for this new paperback
