- Includes bibliographical references (pages 312-315) and index.Summary: James Bartos offers a compelling account of the rich history and enduring aesthetic power of geometric abstract art. Writing with the passion of a committed collector and the sensibility of an art historian, Bartos doesn't just chart his subject, he defends its place within the contemporary art world and provokes larger questions about what makes art meaningful. All this is only the backdrop to the real subject of his book, the six "not very British" artists who are presented through a series of insightful new interviews with the artists and their gallerists. Bartos's unusual combination of art history, critique and artist testimony thoroughly reinvigorates one's appreciation of geometric abstract art today.
