Saving Abstraction

Morton Feldman, the de Menils, and the Rothko Chapel

Ryan Dohoney

  • Traces the connections between French Catholic Modernism and U.S. experimentalism
  • Draws upon a wide range of unpublished archival materials on Feldman, the de Menils, and the Rothko Chapel
  • Argues that pluralist American ecumenism needed a modernist experience to convey powerful religious feeling in a time of profound spiritual, economic, and political uncertainty
