"Pollock Matters explores, for the first time, the personal and artistic interrelationship between American Abstract Expressionist painter Jackson Pollock and noted Swiss-born photographer and graphic designer Herbert Matter. Featuring visual and documentary evidence in over 100 illustrations, this book demonstrates a critically important chain of influence between these two creative individuals not considered in previous studies of their respective careers. The book reveals the crucial role that Herbert Matters' technical innovations played in Pollock's radical artistic conception of "energy made visible." Also presented, with scientific analyses of their paints, are a previously unknown body of small drip paintings labeled by Herbert Matter as "Jackson experimental (gift + purchase).""--Jacket

The visual language of Herbert Matter by Reto Caduff( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Herbert Matter was a man who seemingly fit many lives into one by excelling in the creative disciplines of design, photography and film. The documentary The Visual Language of Herbert Matter profiles his extraordinary life and seminal work. With the help of historical footage, vintage photographs, never-before-seen film excerpts (some shot by Matter himself) and a broad overwiew of his extensive body of work, the feature length documentary helps in bringing the picture of an almost forgotten creative genius back into focus."--Container
