Primitivism in modern art by Robert Goldwater( Book )

"This now classic study maps the profound effect of primitive art on modern, as well as the primitivizing strain in modern art itself. Robert Goldwater describes how and why works by primitive artists attracted modern painters and sculptors, and he delineates the differences between what is truly primitive or archaic and what intentionally embodies such elements. His analysis distinguishes the romanticism of Gauguin; an emotional primitivism exemplified by the Brucke and Blaue Reiter groups in Germany; the intellectual primitivism of Picasso and Modigliani; and a "primitivism of the subconscious" in Miro, Klee, and Dali. Two of Goldwater's related essays - "Judgments of Primitive Art, 1905-1965" and "Art History and Anthropology"--Have been added for this new paperback edition."--BOOK COVER

Space and dream by Robert Goldwater( Book )

15 editions published between 1967 and 1968 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Space, dream, constellation, these words which carry so much significance for twentieth century science, also opened new and wonderful worlds for the artist. In this volume, Robert Goldwater, Professor of Fine Arts, New York University, and Chairman, Administrative Committee of the The Museum of Primitive Art, New York, examines art conceived in the period between the two world wars by men whose remarkable interpretations of these words are clearly manifest in their work. The artists created a ne kind of space-not real or classical or Cubist, but floating (dream). This concepts, which is germane to so much art activity today, is analyzed in detail as it occurs in the paintings, sculpture, and writings of Arp, Brancusi, de Chirico, Ernst, Kandinsky, Klee, Masson, Miró, Picasso, Tanguy, and others. More than seventy works are reproduced, eight of which are in color -- Front flap, dust jacket
