An informative historical and critical overview of postwar abstract art in Eastern Europe, this catalogue features some 90 paintings, reliefs and sculptures by Henryk Stazewski, Ryszard Winiarski, Vaclav Bostik, Karel Malich, Dezso Korniss and six other artists whose works range from constructivist compositions to monochromatic gestural paintings and minimalist color field abstractions. Augmented by interviews with and statements by several of the featured artists, ten critical essays examine the differing aesthetic concerns underlying Polish, Czech and Hungarian abstraction, describe the complex influence of state control on developments in Eastern European art, and discuss individual figures and trends in the three countries.
