Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This is a book about visual art written for the nonvisual person by an apparently nonvisual person. Former philosophy professor, noted for his biographical work on his mentor Ananda K. Coormaraswamy, Lipsey found an inspiration that puzzled him in the breakthrough exhibit and catalog The Spiritual in Art: Abstract Painting 1890-1985 ( LJ 3/25/87). His book on the subject plods along; dwelling on Pollock's alcoholism and seeing ``Seekers and Brats'' where one should read Postmodernists. Private symbolism may indeed lie behind the efforts of first-generation abstract artists, but Lipsey does not vivify this fact. Serious collections should opt for The Spiritual in Art . Mary Hamel-Schwulst, Goucher Coll., Towson, Md.
