This deluxe 3-volume edition offers an engaging, visually stunning, and highly informative analysis of the 49 artists featured in over 900 full-color plates. The title of this work takes its inspiration from Towards a New Abstraction, the catalog of an exhibition organized by Ben Heller in 1963 at the Jewish Museum in New York. The theme unites the artists of this "New Abstraction" through their spirit, as opposed to through the "spirit of the times" reflected in other movements such as Minimalism and Pop Art. "New Abstraction" is not to be taken as a movement, but as a meeting of similar artistic sensibilities. This major achievement is an authoritative contribution to what has been called "New Abstraction" and an essential addition to any collection on 20th-century art.
