Needs some refinement[edit]

I would think that Formalism dominated modern art from the late 1800s through the 1960s. is much too simplistic. It is unclear if that means formalism in art criticism or formalism in the making of art. Either way, it would be wrong. Formalists would like to think that it dominated modern art for that long.Brosi 21:37, 28 December 2006 (UTC)


I also find it suspect to refer to Duchamp as a Post Structuralist. He was a dadaist, Modernist, Surrealist.... anti art Chess master. (Billyvamp4 (talk) 01:49, 17 December 2007 (UTC))

one more thing[edit]

Clement Greenberg needs at least a paragraph.Brosi 21:38, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Clement Greenberg Quote[edit]

I am concerned that the large Greenberg quote deals less with Formalism (art) and more his personal involvement and opinion--even though he has an important role in art criticism. Should this be scaled down, or perhaps paraphrased with a footnote to the original text? Chad.Decker801 (talk) 16:29, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
