Twilight of Painting
Parnassus Imprints, 1990. Softcover. In this work, American artist R.H. Ives Gammell argues that the art of painting is in decline due to the rise of modernism and the abandonment of traditional painting techniques. Gammell asserts that modern art has lost its connection to the past and is focused solely on novelty and shock value, rather than skill and craftsmanship. He states that the art of painting has been reduced to a purely intellectual exercise, devoid of emotion and soul. Very Good. Item #8832
Quarto (11" tall). 133 pp. 72 black & white plates. In wraps. From private collection.
