Barnett Newman Drawings and Prints
Barnett Newman (1905–70) was a prominent Abstract Expressionist who famously strove to create an art of 'pure idea' that would strip away narrative, figuration and extraneous detail from painting. Newman made drawings throughout his career and began making prints in 1961. His graphic work reflects his quest to represent his 'pure idea' while also revealing an experimental, even playful, side to the artist which is rarely glimpsed in the serious, minimal language of his paintings.
This richly illustrated book, published to accompany a show at the Kunstmuseum Basel, celebrates Newman’s achievements in the graphic arts and is the first publication to provide an overview of the artist’s entire print oeuvre.
