Diego Rivera, Dorothea Lange, Adolfo P?rez Esquivel: artwork and activism have lengthy been intertwined, and the political fallout has led to a creative canon riddled with ancient holes. some of the most obvious omissions from so much listings of yank paintings masters is advert Reinhardt (1913–67). An artist who had major ties to the yank Communist move and leftist political corporations, Reinhardt and his contributions to fashionable paintings have been largely driven out of the highlight for political purposes. yet during this unheard of in-depth research of Reinhardt’s lifestyles and paintings, Michael Corris returns the artist to his rightful position within the background of contemporary paintings and culture.A pioneering avant-garde artist with fierce political views, Reinhardt immersed himself within the brilliant left-wing political and cultural circles of the Thirties and ’40s, simply to be marginalized by means of the social and cultural conservatism that arose in postwar the United States.

Sample text

Even Reinhardt’s achievement as a painter was set aside, as Conceptual artists of the 1960s attempted to recast artistic practice in terms of the framework of language or discourse. ’35 Initially playful and subversive notions like generic art, meta-art 29 30 and dematerialization in time gave way to grim and often tedious obsessions to discover the philosopher’s stone of art: the art ‘act’ divorced from any material support and rendered pure. For some artists, this was what Conceptual art meant and the humourless quest for a formless, style-less, content-less and timeless form for art defined their project.

With the completion of the s-curve, the line terminates at the neck of the bag. At the terminus of this arc, however, it changes direction yet again and abruptly generates a series of verticals that suggest the peaks of a crown, which is Reinhardt’s graphic shorthand for the closure and cathexis of the moneybag. 46 As an illustrator Reinhardt was a formidable all-rounder. 47 The artist was equally adept working with the traditional media of lithographic and Conté crayon on cold-pressed board, a technique incorporated in a frieze on the theme of Soviet industrialization.

As Reinhardt began to apply innovative graphic design tools and new systems of composition to his cartooning, the differences between his illustrations and those of other contributors to New Masses became especially pronounced. His chief innovations were the use of pre-printed, self-adhesive Ben Day screens and, of course, his adaptations of Dadaist collage. The Ben Day screens were a product designed to eliminate the drudgery of cross-hatching, of filling in an area of an illustration or graphic design with a consistent tonal value;58 their use dominated Reinhardt’s contributions to New Masses from 1941 to 1943.
