Ida Kohlmeyer: Systems of Color

Front Cover
Hudson Hills, 2004 - Art - 174 pages
Rooted in the groundbreaking culture of American art in the 1950s and 1960s, and continuing through the late 1990s, Ida Kohlmeyer's long career reveals the continually evolving work of a prolific artist committed to the new principles of modernism and abstract expressionism, as well as the thoughtful assimilation into her own work of minimalism and other later influences and styles.
In this illustrated volume, Tulane University art historian Michael Plante thoroughly explores Kohlmeyer's life and art. More than 100 large color illustrations document the development of her career. A full chronology, bibliography, and listing of exhibitions, collections, and commissions complete this long overdue treatment of an important second-generation abstract expressionist and one of the first of a generation of influential women artists to emerge on the American scene in the second half of the 20th century.
