Ad Reinhardt

Post Cubist Abstractionist


Ad reinhardt

  • Ad Reinhardt was born Adolf Dietrich Frederick Reinhardt on December 13, 1913 in Buffalo, New York.

  • He studied art history at Columbia and the American Artist’s School throughout the 1930’s.

  • Ad Reinhardt’s influence as a teacher and writer were as important as his art work. He taught at Brooklyn College from 1946 to 1967.

The Red Painting, 1950

Untitled, 1950

As a pioneer of “hard-edge” painting, he would limit his work to a single color, moving from red to blue and eventually to his final series of black paintings.


Ad reinhardt

Reinhardt was brought up with socialist parents and he belonged to a left-wing artist’s union. He was an advocate for art being separate from social, political, and literary subjects. His work is mainly strong geometric structure, categorized as “rhythmic post-cubic abstractions.”

Ad reinhardt

He was a talented cartoonist as well as a serious student of oriental art. Although Reinhardt applied his paint with brushes, he was careful to leave no marks or visible signs of his instrument. Respected by minimalists, his work was called powerfully hypnotic.


Ad reinhardt

  • Reinhardt’s stance on “art as art” was controversial.

  • “What in hell on earth, or in heaven, is an artist up to when he says he has something to say? An artist-as-artist, has always nothing to say, and he must say this over and over again.”

  • “A fine artist has no use for use, no meaning for meaning, no need for any need.”

1913-1967

“Only emptiness, complete consciousness, disinterestedness”-is the way he characterized his understanding of the essence art. From 1953 until his death in 1967 he painted nothing but black paintings.
