Minimalism

  • Comment
By James Meyer, Phaidon,2000, 304pp. £39.95

Following Land and Environmental Art and Arte Povera, this is the third volume in Phaidon's Themes and Movements series: large-format hardbacks which bring together key images and texts (by both practitioners and critics) to document major tendencies in post-war art.

They make serious works of reference but are attractive just to browse. Mimimalism considers not only the obvious artists - Andre, Flavin, Judd, LeWitt etc - but several who are less familiar in the UK (Ann Truitt, David Novros). It illustrates their careers from the formative 1960s up to the present.

Pictured left is Anne Truitt's Knight's Heritage (made of painted wood),1963.
