by Deniz Tekiner

In Modern Art and the Romantic Vision, Deniz Tekiner describes several prominent features of German Romanticism and explores the presence of these features in later art forms including French Symbolist art, the early abstract art of Mondrian and Kandinsky, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Pop art, and Earthworks. He considers the social and philosophical contexts of these art forms and demonstrates that they offer a Romantic critique of the disenchantment of the modern world, the alienation of nature, and the subordination of individuals to an emerging 'collective mechanical life.' Tekiner also argues that several of these art forms provide a prescription for ameliorating the conditions of modern life by evoking a heightened sense of spiritual reality and a greater connection with nature. Stimulating and insightful, this book will appeal to anyone interested in the intellectual foundations of modern art.
