Working Space (The Charles Eliot Norton Lectures)
by Frank Stella
Publisher's Description
Stella's first book of art criticism offers the opportunity to see painting problems from the point of view of one of the world's most prominent abstractionists . In Working Space, Stella develops the thesis that the crisis in modern abstrction is analogous to that in representational art in sixteenth-century Italy, and similarly requires a renewed attention to creating a potent, flexible pictorial space such as Caravaggio developed to propel painting forward. A provocative discussion of critical problems in contemporary art, fueled by a nontraditional reevaluation of the work of prominent figures in art history
