Adolph Gottlieb: A Retrospective Reviews
Interesting introduction to an artist with whom I was not currently familiar (found during Corita research). Like his friend Mark Rothko, Gottlieb was an abstract painter. After a few short introductory essays, the bulk of the volume is photographs of the work, much of which involves flat surfaces and geometric shapes. The paintings on cardboard cutouts, which are then assembled into mini-sculptures (done during the 1970s) are most curious, because they look so simple and childlike, and yet not at all as if a child had made them. Also contains the text of the letter Gottlieb and Rothko sent to the NYT about their philosophy of art, and a radio interview with the duo in which they do the same. Neat stuff, would definitely want to read more about Gottlieb.
