Description

 

In a new approach to the subject, Mel Gooding rejects the widely accepted notion that the story of abstraction can be traced as a succession of stylistic trends each set within its own art historical context. He offers instead readings of specific works by artists as diverse as Kasimir Malevich, Wassily Kandinsky, Naum Gabo, Piet Mondrian, Willem de Kooning and Lucio Fontana, treating them as exemplary of particular tendencies within the overlapping histories of abstraction.
