Summary The publication undertakes a comprehensive reappraisal of a hitherto nearly overlooked US-American art movement: Pattern and Decoration (1975-1985). By reclaiming color, variation of forms as well as sensuality, artists such as Valerie Jaudon, Robert Kushner and Miriam Schapiro radically distinguished themselves from the predominant Minimal Art and Concept Art at that time. Pattern and Decoration questioned not only traditional notions of art, but also addressed broader political and social issues like the position of women or ethnic minorities in the global art scene.
