Thomas B. Hess (Author). Armin Zweite's chronology of the life and work of Barnett Newman is absolutely fantastic.

Thomas B. Complete and well referenced, the book is as complete as one would wish without ever being overbearing.

In 1951 Hess published his first book, Abstract Painting: Background and American Phase, the first substantial book to address the development of abstract art in America. Ironically enough, it was Hess' posthumous treatment of Barnett Newman (who the critic only appreciated late in the artist's life) that irked Rosenberg and created a philosophical divide between these two friends.

Artwork page for ‘Adam’, Barnett Newman, 1951, 1952 From the mid-1940s Newman had been preoccupied with the Jewish myths of Creation. The vertical strips in his paintings may relate to certain traditions that present God and man as a single beam of light. It would appear, as Thomas B. Hess has pointed out, that his titles often had hidden meanings which were intended to hint at mystical religious experiences and Kabbalist thought. Mrs Newman said that Ben Heller, the first owner of this painting, was introduced to Newman by Jackson Pollock. He bought 'Adam' and 'Queen of the Night I' direct from the studio in 1957.

Barnett Newman is born on January 29 in his parents’ home at 480 Cherry Street on the Lower East Side of. .One of the paintings is vandalized. Thomas Hess in ARTnews writes: Newman is out to shock, but he is not out to shock the bourgeoisie-that has been done.

Barnett Newman is born on January 29 in his parents’ home at 480 Cherry Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Newman’s parents, Abraham and Anna (born c. 1874 and 1882, respectively), are Jewish immigrants who arrived in New York City from Lomza, Russian Poland, in 1900. Abraham makes a living selling sewing-machine heads to garment workers. A single painting, End of Silence, sells to a college friend of Annalee’s.

As the saying goes "you need to have a gimmick if you want to get ahead". Well, for Barnett Newmann, a major figure in the Abstract Expressionist movement and a precursor of Minimalism, the gimmick was the "zip"; a vertical line dividing the canvas. This feature is observed in many of his later works. Opinions are divided about Newmann's work. Clement Greenberg was an early enthusiast, Robert Hughes however is far less enthusiastic. Hughes caustically observes that "this minimal form came to be invested with powers one might hesitate to attribute to Paradise Lost or Beethoven's Ninth Symphony".

This volume, a catalogue of an exhibition held in Philadelphia in 2002, gives a comprehensive overview of Newmann's life and artistic output. The book begins with scholarly essays about Newmann and his work. This is followed by color illustrations of 109 exhibits. These are mainly paintings but there are a few sculptures and etchings. It is very interesting to observe the development in Newmann's painting style over the course of time. This book is is very well printed with high quality full page illustrations. This catalogue would serve very well as a comprehensive Barnett Newmann overview.

Excellent text, cluttered presentation and okay reproductions, but I was hoping for more. For what it is, excellent writing and informative comments about the artist and his relationship to to the times by a very important participant in the scene, it would be hard to beat.

Apart from the Catalogue Raisonné, this is the best contribution to the understanding of Newman's work in recent years. It is the catalogue for an exhibition held at the National Gallery in London and, therefore, carries no surprise: All the masterpieces are there, arranged in a chronological order, beautifully illustrated and accompanied by an enlightening text.

Wonderful book! I read it in my 20's and it confirmed my visual observations of paintings I saw in Europe and here in the USA.

Armin Zweite's chronology of the life and work of Barnett Newman is absolutely fantastic. Written in a compact style hitherto unknown by art commentators the book flows from one anecdote to another. Complete and well referenced, the book is as complete as one would wish without ever being overbearing. Given the limited scope of Newman's work I would have hope that all prints were in color but alas only about 50% are color. Still the works are presented logically and connections are made throughout the book. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommended for anyone. HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommended for the abstract art enthusiast.

Highly recommended. The essays and chronology are easy to read and well researched and the reproductions are of high quality.
Fine review of of the life and works of this master. This 1971
text was the first comprehensive study of this visionary artist.
In addition to excellent b/w plates many color illustrations.
Both thoughtful and insightful view into his life.
