Primitivism in Modern Art (Paperbacks in art history)
by Robert Goldwater
Publisher's Description
"This now classic study maps the profound effect of primitive art on modern, as well as the primitivising 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."--the publisher. This new paperback edition is further enriched by Goldwater's essay "Judgements of Primitive Art, 1905-1965." A profoundly significant analysis of the asumptions inherent in our century's primitive underpinnings.
