Full Description

Addie Herder created small-scale collages for which she relied on compositional principles of balance and dynamism. These rigorous, found paper compositions earned the artist well-deserved respect from other artists, dealers, and collectors. Although Herder’s work invites comparisons with well-known artists like Joseph Cornell, she eschewed prevailing 20th-century artistic trends such as painterly abstraction, minimalism, and conceptualism. This beautifully illustrated book, the first to examine the art of this dynamic artist, introduces her multilayered practice to new audiences and offers a critical analysis of her intricate and intriguing “assemblage” constructions and ephemera.
