Color, Myth, and Music: Stanton Macdonald-Wright and Synchromism
“These color harmonies, limited in number with Cézanne, but of singular justness of vibration, we three made precise in studying the solar spectrum, and it is now as easy for a painter to strike a perfect chord in any color scheme on his palette as for a pianist to do the same thing on the piano.”

Color, Myth, and Music: Stanton Macdonald-Wright and Synchromism

Near Fine. Item #10490
ISBN: 0882599860

Raleigh: North Carolina Museum of Art, 2001. First Edition. Tall Quarto (30.5x23x1.5cm); xviii + 229pp, including chronology, bibliography, and index. Some 60 reproductions of works in the exhibition, with many additional background and documentary images; one double gatefold spread.

Illustrated card card covers over sewn gatherings. Near Fine, just short of As New because of a slight bump and tear at the foot of the card spine, which is otherwise uncreased and uncracked. Textblock impeccable.

"Synchromy" means, simply, "with color," and that's vividly irrefutable in the works reproduced, since Macdonald-Wright (1890-1973) inhabits a visual space somewhere between that of Chagall and Delaunay. This is the catalog of his retrospective at the North Carolina Museum of Art from 4 March to 3 July 2001, later traveling to Los Angeles and Houston.
