Painting and Understanding Abstract Art
An Approach to Contemporary MethodsBook - 1964
The author "explains the dynamics of abstract art, from its development over the years through present day (1964), touching on examples of surrealism, expressionism and cubism. He explains the use of negative and positive space, thrust and pull of compositions and understanding the abstract "alphabet" when tackling your own canvasses. He also touches on collage, texture, color, mixed media and new techniques when painting, like using pipe cleaners or cardboard cutouts instead of paintbrushes."--Amazon.
