PRECISIONISM IN AMERICA, 1915-1941: REORDERING REALITY. Montclair Art Museum, 1994. Published in association with Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 160 pp. with 175 ills. (56 col.). 30 x 23 cm. LC 94-4368 ISBN 0810937344 In English.
An in-depth investigation of the Precisionist movement and its role in the evolution of modernism in American art, this catalogue documents 137 paintings, drawings, photographs and prints by Charles Sheeler, Charles Demuth, Joseph Stella, Morton Schamberg, Paul Strand, Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O'Keeffe, Preston Dickinson, Ralston Crawford and some 30 other artists, the selection encompassing urban views, depictions of industrial subjects, still lifes and studies of rural architecture distinguished by the artists' use of simplified colors and sharply delineated geometric forms. Good reproductions of the exhibited works are prefaced by a lengthy discussion of the origins and development of the Precisionist aesthetic and four essays examining the links between Precisionist painting and photography, the appeal of America's dynamic urban culture to European artists in the decades following World War I, the impact of the cultural values of the Machine Age on early 20th-century American art, and the connections between the Precisionists and such poets of the period as William Carlos Williams and Marianne Moore.
