Abstract painting meets theosophical spirituality in 1930s New Mexico: the first major publication on a radical, astonishingly prescient episode in American modernism. Founded in Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico, in 1938, at a time when social realism reigned in American art, the Transcendental Painting Group (TPG) sought to promote abstract art that pursued enlightenment and spiritual illumination.
The original members of the TPG were Emil Bisttram, Robert Gribbroek, Lawren Harris, Raymond Jonson, William Lumpkins, Florence Miller Pierce, Agnes Pelton, Horace Towner Pierce, and Stuart Walker, later joined by Ed Garman. This volume provides a broad perspective on the group's work, positioning it within the history of modern painting and 20th-century American art.
