Clement Greenberg Between the Lines: Including a Debate with Clement Greenberg

Clement Greenberg (1909-94), champion of abstract expressionism and modernism - of Pollock, Miro, and Matisse - has been esteemed by many as the greatest art critic of the second half of the twentieth century, and possibly the greatest art critic of all time. This volume, a lively reassessment of Greenberg's writings, features three approaches to the man and his work: Greenberg as critic, doctrinaire, and theorist. The book also features a transcription of a debate between de Duve and Greenberg that took place at the University of Ottawa in 1987. Clement Greenberg: Between the Lines will be an indispensable resource for students, scholars, and enthusiasts of modern art.
