about

To quote Robert Hughes, ”All critics concerned with American painting will be Kuh's debtors from now on.” Interviewed in the 1960s, the painters and sculptors Katharine Kuh spoke with provide insights into their work that remain illuminating and relevant. The author allows the artists to comment—in their own words—on their inspirations, philosophies, and creative processes and to debunk common myths about their work. Sometimes the results are surprising: abstract painter Josef Albers confesses to being a realist, while realist painter Ivan Albright firmly denies the charge. Marcel Duchamp professes surprise over the controversy stirred by his Nude Descending a Staircase, and Edward Hopper insists that his supposed themes of loneliness and nostalgia are entirely unintentional.
Katharine Kuh (1904–1994) was the first curator of modern painting and sculpture at the Art Institute of Chicago, an art editor of the Saturday Review, and the author of Léger, Art Has Many Faces, Break-Up: The Core of Modern Art, and The Open Eye: In Pursuit of Art.

From Our Editors

For getting into the hearts and minds of some of the most exciting and prolific artists of the 20th century, Katharine Kuh, the first curator of modern painting and sculpture at the Art Institute of Chicago, has done an admirable job. The Artist's Voice gathers the words of 17 modern artists as they talk about their inspirations, personal philosophies and creative processes, all the while intimating sometimes surprising things about themselves and debunking common myths about their work. This is a fascinating exploration of the artist's psyche.
