Minimilism and Conceptual Art
The painting came with a very powerful quote, “art no longer cares to serve the state and religion; it no longer wishes to illustrate the history of manners, it wants to have nothing further to do with the object as such, and believes that it can exist, in and for itself, without things”
(quoted Gablik in Stangos 1981, p. 244)
It was the least popular revolution amongst art buyers and critiques. It laid low for decades until artist in the 60's bought it back into vogue, noting that they were bored with the modern day action paintings and preferred to paint with intuition rather than a form or light painting.
For me? A revelation...
