Pictures of Nothing

Item #: 5240

Author: Kirk Varnedoe

Pictures of Nothing examines how, while names like Jackson Pollock, Piet Mondrian, and Willem de Kooning are immediately recognized for their significance in modern culture, the importance of depicting squares or splattered paint is not as widely understood. With humor and candor, Kirk Varnedoe illuminates the meaning behind nonrepresentational works of the past 50 years—the contradictory intentions of Josef Albers's and Carl Andre's shared geometry or the minute artistic details of Robert Smithson's massive Spiral Jetty .
