HELEN LUNDEBERG: A RETROSPECTIVE. Michael Duncan and Malcolm Warner. Laguna Art Museum, Laguna Beach, 2016. Published by Grand Central Press, Santa Ana. 128 pp. with 89 ills. (78 col.). 26 x 26 cm. ISBN 9780935314892 In English.
Publisher's description: Laguna Art Museum is proud to organize the first comprehensive exhibition of the work of a key figure in twentieth-century California art, Helen Lundeberg (1908-1999). Featuring approximately sixty to seventy paintings, it will survey Lundeberg's career systematically, beginning with her landmark Post-Surrealist paintings of the 1930s. With her teacher and later husband Lorser Feitelson, she organized the Post-Surrealist group, the first of its kind in the United States, and wrote its manifesto. Though exploring psychology and personal expression, the Post-Surrealists aimed to bring a greater sense of order and control to European Surrealism and originally styled themselves New Classicists. By the late 1950s Lundeberg was working on a larger scale. She simplified her style into broad, flat areas of color and, though never a pure abstractionist, played a key part in the "hard-edge" tendency in mid-century painting. Bringing de Chirico-like ambiguities of space to architectural and landscape compositions, she preserved the enigmatic mood of her earlier, surrealistic imagery.
