Mumford on modern art in the 1930s by Lewis Mumford( )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 1,891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Lewis Mumford is widely acknowledged as the seminal American critic of architecture and urbanism in the twentieth century, he is less known for his art criticism. He began contributing to this field in the early 1920s, and his influence peaked between 1932 and 1937, when he was art critic for the New Yorker. This book, for the first time, assembles Mumford's important art criticism in a single volume. His columns bring wit and insight to bear on a range of artists, from establishment figures like Matisse and Brancusi to relatively new arrivals like Reginald Marsh and Georgia O'Keeffe. These articles provide an unusual window onto the New York art scene just as it was casting off provincialism in favor of a more international outlook. On a deeper level, the columns probe beneath the surface of modern art, revealing an alienation that Mumford believed symptomatic of a larger cultural disintegration. Many of the themes Mumford addresses overlap with those of his more familiar architectural criticism: the guiding role of the past in stimulating creativity in the present, the increasing congestion of the modern metropolis, the alarming lack of human control over modern technology, and the pressing need to restore organic balance to everyday living. Though he was open to new movements emanating from Europe, Mumford became the chief advocate of a progressive American modernism that was both socially aware and formally inventive
Sidewalk critic : Lewis Mumford's writings on New York by Lewis Mumford( Book )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher Fact Sheet Lewis Mumford (1895-1990) is still revered as one of America's leading cultural critics & an international authority on architecture & urbanism. Praise for Princeton Architectural Press's hardcover edition of Sidewalk Critic: "Here, at last, is a selection of Mumford's Sky Line pieces from 1931 through 1940, the body of work that made him the prince of America's architecture critics."--New Yorker "Robert Wojtowicz has done the public a service in republishing these essays & columns [of] one of America's greatest & least appreciated twentieth-century thinkers."--Harper's Magazine "Mumford's wonderfully stylish & incisive writing remains the unsurpassed model for an engaged architectural criticism. Lewis Mumford--whose eye was as good as his conscience--is our greatest critic. These pieces are among his best."--Michael Sorkin, architect & critic "For those of us who missed Lewis Mumford's 1930s articles in the New Yorker the first time around, this book provides a wonderful opportunity to 'catch up' & to consider again how this remarkable scholar could be at once so perceptive & so maddening."--Kenneth T. Jackson, editor of The Encyclopedia of New York
Lewis Mumford and American modernism : Eutopian theories for architecture and urban planning by Robert Wojtowicz( Book )

21 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and Italian and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mumford was one of the first to write appreciatively of the achievements of the Chicago School, and he was a fervent supporter of Frank Lloyd Wright, whose buildings embodied the organic qualities that Mumford admired. Indeed, Mumford's writings have proved to be prescient, posing many challenging questions for architects and planners in a period of transition at the end of the twentieth century

Frank Lloyd Wright & Lewis Mumford : thirty years of correspondence by Frank Lloyd Wright( Book )

11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A fallout over isolationist politics in the early 1940s led to a 10-year gap in their exchange, and when it resumed, the two were on an entirely different footing: Wright, the elder dean of American architecture at the height of his creative powers, and Mumford, an established critic in late middle age deeply committed to rebuilding a humanist outlook in the aftermath of World War II." "Frank Lloyd Wright & Lewis Mumford offers an intimate look inside the minds and hearts of these two cultural giants, deepening our understanding of the men and the society they helped shape."--Jacket
