This visually stunning book will be a revelation to admirers of Northwest visionary artist Morris Graves (b. 1910) who know him chiefly through his profoundly original, metaphysically charged paintings of chalices, birds, snakes, and other small creatures. Graves' national reputation began with the Museum of Modern Art's exhibition "Americans 1942 - 18 Artists from 9 States". Throughout his long career as one of America's most highly regarded painters of the transcendental, Graves has been less well known for his later flower paintings, represented here in more than fifty full-page color plates encompassing selected works from 1938 through 1992. A number of these paintings first captured public attention in 1983-84, during the course of a retrospective, "Morris Graves, Vision of the Inner Eye", organized by the Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C., which traveled to six major American museums. In the past decade, Graves' flower paintings have continued to command increasing critical and public acclaim. In the view of noted art critic Theodore F. Wolff, whose superb analysis informs this presentation, Graves has created several dozen of the finest American flower paintings of the century. A product of Graves' later years, these serene and radiantly beautiful paintings show distinct compositional parallels with a significant number of his early symbolic and metaphoric works. At the same time, they incorporate the dramatic shift in emphasis that took place in his art during the 1970s, when flowers and light began to embody his evolving sense of what color could be and could do. To a very real degree, notes Wolff, the flower paintings are Graves' culminating work, epitomizing andsummarizing his lifelong attempts to translate the spiritually ineffable into pictorial form

"Renowned as both choreographer and dancer, Merce Cunningham also revolutionized dance through his partnerships with the many artists who created costumes, lighting, films and videos, and décor and sound for his choreographic works. Cunningham, together with partner John Cage, invited those artists to help him rethink what dance could mean, both on the stage and in site-responsive contexts. His notion that movement, sound, and visual art could share a 'common time' remains one of the most radical aesthetic models of the 20th century and yielded extraordinary works by dozens of artists and composers, including Charles Atlas, John Cage, Morris Graves, Jasper Johns, Rei Kawakubo, Robert Morris, Gordon Mumma, Bruce Nauman, Ernesto Neto, Pauline Oliveros, Nam June Paik, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank Stella, David Tudor, Stan Vanderbeek, Andy Warhol, and La Monte Young, among many others. These collaborations bring to the fore Cunningham's direct impact upon postwar artistic practice. This volume reconsiders the choreographer and his collaborators as an extraordinarily generative interdisciplinary network that preceded and predicted dramatic shifts in performance, including the development of site-specific dance, the use of technology as a choreographic tool, and the radical separation of sound and movement in dance. It features ten new essays by curators and historians, as well as interviews with contemporary choreographers--Beth Gill, Maria Hassabi, Rashaun Mitchell, and Silas Riener--who address Cunningham's continued influence. These are supplemented by rarely published archival photographs, reprints of texts by Cunningham, Cage, and other key dancers, artists and scholars, several appendices, and an extensive illustrated chronology placing Cunningham's activities and those of his collaborators in the context of the 20th century, particularly the expanded arts scene of the 1960s and 1970s. This book is an essential volume for anyone interested in contemporary art, music, and dance."--
