The Spiritual in art : abstract painting 1890-1985 by Maurice Tuchman ( Book )
7 editions published between 1986 and 1996 in English and Dutch and held by 1,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Traces the use of geometric signs by the Nabis and other French artists and relates this to the development of abstraction. The author describes some of the sources of ideas about the symbolism of geometric signs, in particular the writings of Helena P. Blavatsky, and traces the impact of these on the Nabis, possibly through the stimulus of Gauguin whose paintings from his Brittany period encouraged a mystical conception of art in which sacred geometry figured as one component. He goes on to discuss in detail the paintings of Paul Serusier, Paul Ranson, Maurice Denis, Charles Filiger, Jean Delville, Frantisek Kupka and Mondrian
Mondrian : the art of destruction by Carel Blotkamp ( Book )
15 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume analyzes the interrelation between Dutch artist Piet Mondrian's (1872-1944) paintings and his theories on art and life as expressed in public writings and (largely unpublished) letters. Mondrian was an important contributor to the De Stijl art movement and group, which was founded by Theo van Doesburg. He evolved a non-representational form which he termed Neo-Plasticism. This consisted of white ground, upon which was painted a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines and the three primary colors. The author concentrates on his paintings, the artist's major achievement, examining the influences that shaped his art: Fauvism and Cubism, the work of Bart van der Leck, De Stijl and the Parisian art world during the 1920s. The author concludes that Mondrian appears not as an isolated figure, but as an artist who took a keen interest in the world around him, a veritable avant-garde painter who saw his role as a creator of a new, modern culture
