    • Pictures of Nothing: Abstract Art since Pollock


    • VARNEDOE, KIRK. Pictures of Nothing: Abstract Art since Pollock. Foreword by Earl A. Powell III, preface by Adam Gopnik; xvii and 302 pp., roughly 20 color and b&w illustrations. 4to, cloth. Princeton and Oxford, Princeton University Press, 2006.
      These A.W. Mellon lectures, edited and reproduced here with their illustrations, were delivered to overflow audiences at the National Gallery of Art in Washington in the spring of 2003, just months before Kirk Varnedoe died. Conceived as a statement of his faith in modern art, he addresses the skeptical attitudes and misunderstandings that we often bring to our experience of abstract art, and challenges the received wisdom about distinctions between abstraction and representation, modernism and postmodernism, minimalism and pop. A fascinating and engaging tour of half a century of art.
