Summary

Summary

Time and again in recent decades, art world denizens have celebrated or mourned the demise and subsequent resurgence of painting. In The Power of Painting invites you to take a look at painting above and beyond the rather tiresome modernist myth of the end of painting It proposes to consider the challenges and problems facing painters in the age of photography not as an omen of painting's eventual final exhaustion, but rather as a source of its lasting vitality In the Power of Painting traces how six seminal postwar artists -- Andy Warhol, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Cy Twombly, Brice Marden, and Ross Bleckner -- developed their signature approach to painting in response to the art form's perceived crisis The six groups of works from the Daros collection impressively demonstrate how these painters re-wrote the rules of painting, from their initial experimenting to the canvases that heralded their maturity. A handsome and splendidly reproduced book, indispensable for all those looking for ways out of the restrictions and limitations of modernist and postmodernist approaches to art.
