9780520052567: Theories of Modern Art: A Source Book by Artists and Critics (California Studies in the History of Art)

Herschel B. Chipp's Theories of Modern Art: A Source Book By Artists and Critics is a collection of texts from letters, manifestos, notes and interviews. Sources include, as the title says, artists and critics—some expected, like van Gogh, Gauguin, Apollinaire, Mondrian, Greenberg, just to name a few—and some less so: Trotsky and Hitler, in the section on Art and Politics. The book is a wonderful resource and insight into the way artists think and work.

About the Author:

Herschel B. Chipp is Professor of Art History at the University of California in Berkeley and the author of Theories of Modern Art.

Review:

"The richest, most thorough and authoritative anthology of theoretical source materials on painting and sculpture since Cezanne which has so far appeared." (Alfred Frankenstein San Francisco Chronicle 1984-06-01)

"Once in a great while one discovers a book that is unusual in approach, scope, and content. This is such a book . . . From the words of the artists, . . . one gets an insight concerning their art, a feeling of knowing the artists, and an awareness of their humanness -- added dimensions that make viewing their art work even more meaningful. . . . This book is a significant contribution and is an important source for anyone interested in or involved with modern art." (Art Education 1984-06-01)

"A rich feast of letters, manifestos, reviews, interviews, and other writings relating to the study of modern art, carefully searched and methodically selected. . . . He wrote the book to fill a need often cited by art historians and students -- to put the study of modern art on a sounder ideological basis. This he does. . . . Other collections of documents of art by modern artists have been printed, but this source book has the advantages of objectivity and large scope. . . . highly recommended for art collections and also for its relevance to humanities in general." (Library Journal 1984-06-01)
