For over three decades, Peter C Ruppert and his wife Rosemarie assembled a private collection of some 245 artworks which vividly document the development and spread of Concrete Art throughout Europe from 1945 to the present. This publication provides a comprehensive survey of the various styles and approaches represented in the works of 171 artists from 22 countries. The spectrum ranges from the geometric forms and pure colours in the painting of Josef Albers, Max Bill and Victor Vasarely to the beginings of computer art as seen in the work of Manfred Mohr, from the virtual sculptures of Gerhard Mantz to the latest examples of Concrete Photography.

This is a seriously interesting book (I have to keep a copy) that will inspire anyone interested in art that is both colourful and graphic.
