Product Description:

This catalog focuses on three American abstract artists who created works on spiritual themes from the 1940s through the 1980s. Although Jensen, von Wiegand and Gouverneur did not know each other, their works express common yearnings of the post–WWII generation. The Back to the Future Catalog aims to provide insight on these artists who, like many disaffected intellectuals in the 1960s, sought to fill a spiritual void by embracing Western mystical traditions and non-Western religions.
