Item description for Minimal Art (Taschen Basic Art) by Uta Grosenick, Daniel Marzona & Elena Carlini...

Founded as a backlash against abstract expressionism, minimalism was characterized by simplified, stripped-down forms and materials used to express ideas in a direct and impersonal manner. By presenting objects as simple objects, minimal artists sought to communicate without referring to expressive or historical themes. This critical movement, which began in the 1960s and branched out into land art, performance art, and conceptual art, is still a major influence today. Featured artists: Carl Andre, Stephen Antonakos, Jo Baer, Larry Bell, Ronald Bladen, Walter De Maria, Dan Flavin, Robert Grosvenor, Eva Hesse, Donald Judd, Gary Kuehn, Sol LeWitt, Robert Mangold, John McCracken, Robert Morris, Robert Ryman, Fred Sandback, Richard Serra, Tony Smith, Robert Smithson, Anne Truitt

Reviews - What do customers think about Minimal Art (Taschen Basic Art)?

review of Minimal Art  Feb 3, 2005
Due to its brevity (94 pages), this book should be considered a primer on Minimal Art. The book is divided into two sections; the first is a brief history of the artists who immediately preceeded and were contemporary with early Minimalism (the 1960s), such as the Abstract Expressionists, Pop artists, Jasper Johns, and Robert Rauschenberg. The origins of the term "Minimal Art" are discussed; the fact that all of the artists whose work is considered Minimal rejected that label demonstrates that Minimalism as an art style is entirely a critcal construct, rather than an artistic one. The author then discusses the attitudes and works of the five artists who he considers to be squarely within the Minimalist framework: Donald Judd, Robert Morris, Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, and Sol Lewitt.

The second part of the book illustrates individual works along with a brief commentary on each. This section is more inclusive of artists beyond the five discussed in the first section, embracing work by Robert Ryman, Robert Mangold, and Richard Serra, among others. It includes painting as well as sculpture, and works by more women artists than some other texts on Minimal Art.

Although the author's understanding of Minimal Art is obvious and insightful, overall this book breaks no new ground in contextualizing or explaining Minimal Art, or the motivations behind it, but rather re-presents established discourse in an essay length format.
