Geslce Describes Stages
In Revolution Of US Art
Influence Of Three Men Discussed
"Three stages in the revolution
of American art are represented
in the works of Gwathmey,
Knaths and Pereira," explained
Norman Geske, acting director of
the university Art Galleries in a
It is their treatment of subject
which shows the forces operating
in American art in the last cen
tury, he said. Gwathmey is pri
marily concerned with subject
matter, Knaths trys to achieve a
compromise between subject and
abstract form and Pereira almost
completely eliminates conven
tional subjects, Geske added.
AFTER GIVING Historical in
formation on the revolution by
"The Eight" at the turn of the
century, and subsequent modifr
cations and influences operative
in modern art, Geske analyzed
the individual painters and their
relative positions in the art revo
"Gwathmey is the most inter
esting of the three to many ob
servers, he stated, "because he
is closest to the conservative tra
ditional art." Observers are first
of all impressed, he continued, by
the painter s subject, which is the
southern Negro. .
"Do not make the mistake,
however, of regarding Gwathmey
simply as a subject matter paint
er," he warned. "He is also
a superb painter in technique."
"K.NATHS KEr RESENTS a
middle ground in terms of sub
ject matter. He has been called
the most distinguished of Ameri
can cubists," Geske pointed out.
He then went on to define cub
ism as "an intellectual analysis
of the visual world." The cubist
artist, he explained attempts to
dissect the visual and put it back
together in a "new reality."
Geske cited "Fiddle" as a good
example of Knath's cubism, be
ing a near monotone in color, and
actually an analytical exercise in
lines, planes and tones using the
fiddle as an excuse. This paint
ing shows more of the French
cubist influence than the other
Knaths paintings in the show, be
ing more restricted in use of
A NEW picture by Knaths was
analyzed by the lecturer. Titled
"Frightened Deer," it shows
greater freedom in its use of color
and brush strokes than the earlier
work, Geske said. It also evi
denced more spontaneity and vi
vacity than the other paintings,
be said. Geske stated that the new
painting is one of the less liked
ones in the show, perhaps because
the public is not accustomed to
Concerning Pereira, the only
true abstractionist in the show,
Geske said, "She is not concerned
with reproducing any subject
which we knew previously. Her
subject is the color design, line
and form which she conveys on
EXPLAINING HER technique,
fce said that she uses the rectan
gle as a frame with the use of
intense color relations. She is con
cerned with the spatial relation
ship between color and light,
which plunges the observer into
a deep maze of space and color.
In conclusion, Geske read a
statement on the philosophy of
art which Pereira had written at
