how to look at modern art in america, 1946 a satirical cartoon by ad reinhardt. it was drawn as a response to a diagram that was circulated a decade earlier, attempting to explain cubism and abstract art. the original diagram, created by alfred h. barr, is below. i would have loved to see the notes that reinhardt took about where and how to place each artist. i wonder if warhol had one hanging up in his bedroom and cut and pasted in his own little leaf.
