" a basic sense art cannot be taught, and we do not try to. Yet paradoxically, it can be learned--in the beginning from other artists, and then from oneself."--Robert MotherwellThis is another deep and broad examination of one of the currents in 20th century art. Like Kay Larson's examination of John Cage, it reflects history and a much larger cultural reach than just the tiny community that was for 25 years Black Mountain College.It's amazing that so much ground can be covered in 300 pages.

Thisis is my all time favorite art book.

This is a great book on Black Mountain College, a fascinating place. There's a lot of stuff out there & this is a good one to start with.

Underwhelming. Only the barest mention of Ruth Asawa?
