"The painter Milton Avery is the among the most beloved of American artists. A cool modernist, he is known chiefly for his vividly colored landscapes and intimate scenes of family life. Long overshadowed by Abstract Expressionism, his art has recently begun to be reassessed and its place in the history of modernism restored." "Robert Hobbs explores the development of Avery's painting in this crucial phase and draws insightful connections between it and Wallace Stevens's innovative poetry, written during the same period. This comparison will intrigue devotees of American poetry and American art." "A 1958 essay on Avery by the renowned critic Clement Greenberg, reprinted here, places the artist in the vanguard of an art that unites abstraction and representation, American ingenuity and an international sensibility. Altogether, this book takes a many-faceted approach to the presentation of an exquisite group of artworks."--Jacket

Milton Avery & the end of modernism by Karl Emil Willers( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Milton Avery and the End of Modernism looks at work by the artist who brought the sketch, with its spontaneity, movement, and fleetingness, to the status of a finished painting. The works reproduced in this exhibition catalog feature Avery's intense saturated color fields, the simplification of form, and figures that emphasize the flatness of canvas surface. In the four chapters that open the catalog, Karl Emil Willers takes a concerted look at the contributions of Milton Avery as a significant figurative painter from the late 1920s through the early 1960s, and at the development of Avery's signature paintings from his idiosyncratic drawing style that captures the essence of a person, place, or time. Placing Avery's work within a long history of modernist practice that recognizes the artist's sketch as a "final, complete and a self-sufficient work of art," Willers argues that, within the emergence of his avant-garde style, Avery can be seen as one of the preeminent American painters of his time, exerting great influence among both his contemporaries and subsequent generations of artists." -- SUNY Press
