Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The effects and influence of MinimalismÑthe art movement in which artists removed personal
expression and decorative detail from their workÑcontinue to be felt today as art produced
by its proponents continues to be exhibited and artists continue to use the style.
Beginning in the 1960s, artists like Frank Stella, Donald Judd, Carl Andre, Dan Flavin,
Sol LeWitt, Robert Morris, Robert Smithson, Walter De Maria, Richard Serra, Eva Hesse, and
Joel Shapiro reacted against the flamboyance and self-indulgence of Abstract Expressionism
by pursuing materials, forms, and procedures that remove the personal mark of the fabricator.
The art they produced has been called obstinately cerebral and unapproachably cold by some,
but revolutionary by others, who recognize an unprecedented immediacy in it. This book
examines how the Minimalists removed illusion and habits of perception from their art,
essentially starting with nothing, and forced viewers to do the same. Illustrated with works
ranging from small-scale sculpture to massive earthworks, the text traces the trends
Minimalism succeeded, as well as those that succeeded it. The result is a comprehensive
critical history of one of the century's most important and long-lived art movements.
Kenneth Baker is the art critic for the San Francisco Chronicle and has been published in
many major journals, including the New York Times, Art in America, Artforum, and many others.
He has taught at Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design, and Boston College.
