WHY ABSTRACT? by Hilaire Hiler

WHY ABSTRACT?

KIRKUS REVIEW

A loose discussion on the theory behind abstract painting, the role of the creative artist in our social economy, the nature of 'genius', the influence of scientific discoveries on the technique of painting, the relation of painting and politics and other problems close to analytical artists and students. Its limited appeal is rather wan -- though Hilaire Hiler can claim some following as an abstract painter and color theorist. And the Saroyan name may attract some of the curious.
