RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 53973471 LA English T1 Looking at Barnett Newman A1 Lewison, Jeremy., Newman, Barnett,, PB August Media PP London YR 2002 SN 1902854209 9781902854205 AB "Barnett Newman's paintings are instantly recognisable and impossible to categorise. His fields of colour, interrupted by contrasting vertical 'zips' or bands, can seem forbidding but his work is as compelling and intriguing as it is austere. Previously Newman has been described as a romantic, an artist of the sublime, a precursor of Minimalism, an existentialist and a spiritual painter obsessed with Judaism. In this book Jeremy Lewison puts forward a new approach to understanding Newman's work. The book also features key examples of Newman's writings on art."--Publisher description.
