Arthur Dove: Nature As Symbol. Sherrye Cohn.

Arthur Dove: Nature As Symbol

Out of print publication providing an analysis of Dove's paintings and their break with representation along with the character and symbolism within his work in relation to the cultural context of the time of their making. Cohn seeks to fill the gap in the scholarship on Dove's work and draws upon correspondence between Dove and Stieglitz in the Beinecke library, the artist's writings, scrapbooks, poems amongst other compelling original source material. In the text Cohn argues that Dove's concerns included science, the occult and a search for an American identity. Item #915.
