Modernism's history : a study in twentieth-century art and ideas by Bernard Smith( Book )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The history of twentieth-century visual arts can no longer be written as a succession of avant-garde movements, contends eminent art historian Bernard Smith in this stimulating book. He argues that a return to the concept of period style is inevitable and that modernism—the dominant “style” of art that emerged at the end of the nineteenth century and continued through the 1960s—deserves recognition as a period style. Smith renames this period Formalesque since it is no longer modern and since it emphasizes the formal values of art more than any previous period does."--Publisher's information

Imagining the antipodes : culture, theory, and the visual in the work of Bernard Smith by Peter Beilharz( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bernard Smith is widely recognised as one of Australia's leading intellectuals. Yet recognition of his work has been partial and defined in terms of two key disciplines: art history and anthropology. In this book, Peter Beilharz argues that Smith's work offers us more - that it contains a social theory or a way of thinking about Australian culture and Identity and the world system that is unparalleled. Part intellectual history, part biography and part interpretative argument, Imagining the Antipodes presents a new way of thinking about Australia
