AROUND HOME : Notes on Hooked Rugs, Front Doors, Cooing Doves and Restaurant-Supply Stores : Post-Modernism: The New Classicism in Art and Architecture by CHARLES JENCKS (Rizzoli, 1987)

April 10, 1988|Lois Gibson and DR

JENCKS ANALYZES FREE-form neoclassic art, sculpture and architecture--the metaphysics of Magritte and Mariani, the narratives of Hockney and Longo, the allegories of Costanis and McKenna, the photo-realism of Pearlstein and Ben Johnson, plus the satiric, eclectic post-modern buildings of Rossi, Stirling, Philip Johnson, Venturi, et al--to prove that depicting recognizable forms can be futuristic. Copious illustrations include L.A.'s Westside Pavilion; $60.
