Paths to the absolute : Mondrian, Malevich, Kandinsky, Pollock, Newman, Rothko, and Still by John Golding( Book )

28 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 1,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this survey of the origins and development of abstraction in twentieth-century painting John Golding, himself a noted painter, teacher and art historian, analyzes the ambitions and careers of seven major artists, each of whom 'had been inspired by the fact that he was on the path to some new, ultimate pictorial truth or certainty, to a visual absolute'." "In his discussion of each artist the author has chosen key works to illustrate a visual progression away from figurative painting; each is described and analyzed in terms of colour, medium, content and scale, supplemented by a range of comparative material demonstrating stylistic influences, especially the pivotal role and impact of Cubism in general on Mondrian and Malevich. In the case of each painter attention is drawn to specific factors, such as the effect on Malevich of Futurism and its concern with depicting movement, and particular sources of inspiration or use of symbolism, for example the importance of water and the sea for Jackson Pollock or of shamanistic motifs present in works by Clyfford Still."--Jacket

Visions of the modern by John Golding( Book )

18 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Golding is one of the most highly regarded living writers on modern art. Visions of the Modern assembles many of his most important essays: some long out of print, others first published in journals inaccessible to the average reader, still others which started life as lectures. Taken together they create an authoritative, deeply informed and original account of this century's art. A distinguished painter in his own right, John Golding taught for many years at the Courtauld Institute in the University of London and at the Royal College of Art. He brings to his scholarship a particular understanding of the way in which the pioneering giants of artistic modernism - Picasso, Matisse, Leger, Malevich, Brancusi, Duchamp and others - faced challenges and achieved their individual goals. An appendix to the book, in the form of a dialogue between Golding and the philosopher Richard Wollheim, casts new light on the origins and aims of abstract art
