The tradition of the new by Harold Rosenberg( Book )

119 editions published between 1959 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,890 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Harold Rosenberg was undoubtedly the most important American art critic of the twentieth century. It was he who first coined the term ”Action Painters” to refer to the American Abstract Expressionists such as Pollock, Kline, and de Kooning. Rosenberg’s seminal writings on this movement, as well as on other artists such as Newman and Rothko, appear in The Tradition of the New (1959), his first and most influential book; its effects on subsequent art criticism, and the practice of art itself, are still felt today. The essays in this book are not limited to the art world, however: He also discusses poetry, political and cultural theory, and popular culture. As wide-ranging, independent, and deeply probing as the essays of Walter Benjamin, Harold Rosenberg’s The Tradition of the New is a true classic of twentieth-century criticism

22 editions published between 1978 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Barnett Newman was the most original and influential artist to emerge in the United States in the decade following World War II. Following his "breakthrough" in 1948 in Onement I - a small painting with a red-orange vertical stripe centered on a red-brown ground - Newman developed his art organically and intensely, expressing his themes of creation and creativity over the next two decades in an astonishing number of true masterworks." "This abundantly illustrated volume, by the late Harold Rosenberg, dean of American art critics, brings together for the first time reproductions in color of almost every one of Newman's paintings, as well as most of the drawings, watercolors, works in mixed media, sculpture, etchings, lithographs, and architecture. Rosenberg's interpretive essay emphasizes the spirituality and metaphysical quality of Newman's art, and it shows how Newman's personae as citizen, polemicist, man of impeccable taste, and metaphysician molded his artistic personality and led to the extraordinary series The Stations of the Cross and to the superb final paintings." "More than most other American artists Newman influenced the course of art in the 1960s and 1970s. His enduring achievement - perhaps the greatest monument to artistic integrity ever created in the United States - is presented chronologically in this volume, medium by medium. Newman's statement of his life and art is fully assembled here, and his radiant paintings and colors shine forth from almost every page in a blaze of transcendent light."--BOOK JACKET

Arshile Gorky: the man, the time, the idea by Harold Rosenberg( Book )

19 editions published between 1962 and 1980 in 3 languages and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a good place to study Gorky. Much of what has been said of Gorky in recent books is not backed up by Rosenberg. This book did much to revive Gorky's reputation. The profile here is about his rapid development. The part played by his intellect is especially important: modern art& traditional work.rosenberg summarizes his values.allusion,parody,quotation were important to him. They separated him from many painters in NYC."--Amazon
