Painter’s Word

Thomas Hart Benton, Marsden Hartley and Ad Reinhardt as Writers

Series:

Edyta Frelik

This book adds a new perspective to the study of American art by reclaiming underrated writings of three 20 th -century masters, Thomas Hart Benton, Marsden Hartley and Ad Reinhardt. Their rich and diverse literary output was never before studied methodically in and beyond the context of their painting. The book’s first part sets the necessary framework for discussing their texts by outlining the long history of debates about inter-art analogies and rivalries. Through systematic close reading of Benton’s, Hartley’s and Reinhardt’s writings the study reveals novel and unique juxtapositions of visual and verbal elements at work which are present in both their paintings and writings and confirms the existence of a strong link between their painterly and writerly dispositions.
