Ad Reinhardt was one of the most significant American artists of
the twentieth century. He was also one of the few artists of the
Abstract Expressionist generation to have painted abstractions from
the start. "To him abstraction was not a genre or style," "New York
Times" art critic Holland Cotter writes of him: "it was an ethos."
This extensively illustrated catalogue--the first comprehensive
Reinhardt overview in 13 years--reproduces the artist's signature
"black" paintings (his 60 x 60 inch canvases of the 1960s, which he
considered to be his "ultimate" aesthetic expression, and "the last
paintings that anyone can paint"), as well as his cartoons and
photographic slide presentations. Published to document a
critically lauded exhibition at David Zwirner in New York in 2013,
the monograph includes new scholarship by curator Robert Storr, in
addition to an extensive chronology of the artist's life.
Ad Reinhardt (1913-1967) was born in Buffalo, New York, and studied
art history at Columbia University, where he forged lifelong
friendships with the authors Thomas Merton and Robert Lax. After
studies at the American Artists School, he worked for the WPA and
became a member of the American Abstract Artists group, with whom
he exhibited for the next decade; later he was also represented by
Betty Parsons. Throughout his career Reinhardt engaged in art-world
activist politics, participating in the famous protests against The
Museum of Modern Art in 1940 and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in
1950 (among the group that became known as "The Irascibles").
