NOTES:

Love this work. The way the cloth wraps in and out and under and around her leg and arm - the painting in the shawl on the leg.

Modernism in painting (and elsewhere)
One will start with a short introduction to abstracted painting, that the critic Clement Greenberg, in a famous article, preferred to call "modernistic painting". The reading with accompanying notes of this article will carry out us to question us on the origin of the modernism in painting, much older than the abstraction itself, since it actually goes up at the institution of the Show of painting, in France, at the end of the XVII E century. The prehistory of "modernistic painting" passes by emergence, during the XVIII E, of a public space for the appreciation of painting, and is completed in the many quarrels of the artists with the Show to the XIX E. The Show of refused of 1863 crystallizes the context in which were born the pictorial avant-gardes which prepared avénement abstraction. Manet, that Greenberg describes as first modernistic painter, will be then studied cursively via five tables which culminate in its will, a bar with the Madness-Shepherdess, of 1882. Is worked out new a tableau/spectator report/ratio, bases there of a new pact between the corporation of the painters and the more not resting public on the representation and the representativeness but on the address of the painters to their medium. It is this address which constitutes the essence of the modernism in painting, and it is of it that rises the renouncement from painting abstracted of the figuration. Through the example of some abstract painters (Mondrian, Pollock, Ryman...), one will try to include/understand of what the new pact consists whose Manet was the pioneer, before reconsidering the article of Greenberg, "Modemist Painting", to give a new interpretation of it. This second reading will primarily result in replacing the concept greenbergien of flatness by that of jacingness. In other words: the progressive reduction of "modernistic painting" to the flatness of the support results from the face-to-face discussion of the artist and his medium. Usually considered like a company aiming at releasing the purely pictorial specificity of the medium, the modernism in painting appears now like an attitude completely transposable with other médiums. One will see to finish how certain contemporary artists, who do not practise painting but well the photograph, it video or the cinema (Jeff Wall, Gary Hill, Sylvie Blocher, Roni Horn, Bill Viola...) take again on their account the new tableau/spectator report/ratio set up by Manet and transform it in their turn .
