Abstract Art

BOOKS
February 22, 1987 | John Dillenberger, Dillenberger, with his wife Jane, was responsible for the 1977 exhibition and catalogue "Perceptions of the Spirit in Twentieth Century American Art." His most recent book is "A Theology of Artistic Sensibilities: The Visual Arts and the Church" (Crossroad).
This is at once a book of essays and a catalogue accompanying the exhibition of the same title at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (through March 8), the inaugural exhibition of the museum's Robert O. Anderson Building. The exhibition has deservedly received major attention in the art world, both for its visual achievement and for the interesting questions it raises with respect to the spiritual, mystical and occult origins of abstract art.

Nineteen-fifty, for April Kingsley, marked a pivotal point in the development of Abstract Expressionism (AbEx). It was the year that many of the painters associated with AbEx (Arshile Gorky and Hans Hoffman), designated as AbEx (Newman, Rothko, Reinhardt, Brooks, Baziotes, etc.) or identified with AbEx (Pollack, De Kooning, Guston and Kline) all had found galleries and had exhibitions.

Lovers of abstract art and gourmet food were in their element Thursday night when the Newport Harbor Art Museum held a Founders Preview of "American Abstraction From the Addison Gallery of American Art." About 130 guests gathered at the Newport Beach museum for an after-hours reception staged by Cartier and museum trustees to ponder the abstract art, sip champagne and sample exotic hors d'oeuvres from the kitchen of Patina restaurant in Los Angeles.

The County Museum of Art needed a blockbuster to launch its new Robert O. Anderson Building for Modern and Contemporary Art. Not just your ordinary razzle-dazzle strew of twinkly treasures. Something smart. Something with a touch of originality. Something to plant the new LACMA's banner on the terrain of modern arts movers and shakers. Fat chance. Concocting such a brew within the harum-scarum din of bulldozers, cranes and cement mixers putty-putting around all that new construction?
