"In the final essay, Schapiro shows that, although the greatest political work of art of the twentieth century, Guemica nevertheless embodies many of Picasso's artistic obsessions. Painted in the course of one month (May 1937) to memorialize the bombing of a rural town during the Spanish Civil War, Guemica reflects Picasso's fantasies of himself and his family; it contains analogues of his own rage, anxiety, and feelings about death, as well as his awareness of the place of the work in the history of art."--Jacket

Words, script, and pictures : semiotics of visual language by Meyer Schapiro( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second text, "Script in Pictures: Semiotics of Visual Language," is published here for the first time. For generations, medieval book art served as a prime field for the invention of styles of art and as the expression of individual sensibilities. Against this background, Schapiro elaborates on the intricate ways in which medieval artists transformed writing and images in their books, often integrating them to convey, in highly concise formats, their powerful messages. In some cases, a physical bond with language even determined pictorial factors. While Professor Schapiro focuses on medieval examples, he extends his investigation to modern art by analyzing script in the works of Goya, Picasso, Homer, and Manet

Mondrian : on the humanity of abstract painting by Meyer Schapiro( Book )

14 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "On the Humanity of Abstract Painting," Schapiro systematically dismantles the criticism of abstraction as cold, detached, and inartistic. Instead, he proves that this art form is capable of great expressive and intellectual power, endowed with lyricism and grace. He proposes new ways of viewing and thinking about abstraction, in the end establishes it as "an obvious and necessary enrichment of our lives." With "Mondrian: Order and Randomness in Abstract Painting," Schapiro analyses many of the painter's most important works, from The Red Mill to Broadway Boogie-Woogie. He articulates the subtleties of Mondrian's formal strategies and his innate lyricism. He proceeds to map Mondrian's relation to his predecessors, and shows that this archetypal abstractionist was in fact indebted to the formal compositional strategies of such leading late nineteenth century artists as Degas, Monet, Seurat, and Toulouse-Lautrec
