Beschreibung:

Untitled abstract on Masonite (which Rexroth referred to as "Beaver Board"), 12 1/4" wide x 17 3/8" high, ca. 1926, with a double frame (inner frame is glazed and is by Rexroth, outer frame is contemporary and executed to style). Some minor surface abrasion at top-edge (perhaps from the frame), otherwise in fine condition. Some minor surface abrasion at top-edge (perhaps from the frame), otherwise in fine condition In 1944 Rexroth specified on the back of a photo of this painting what is the top and the bottom. He dated it "1926" and noted the colors: "blues, yellows on blue and blue green, white and black circles." The composition uses Mondrian';s palette of primaries with black and white, and is a good example of Rexroth';s use of solar and lunar polarities (the white and black circles) combined with the magnet form, which also carries the association of musical notation (as in linked eighth notes). Rexroth was particularly interested in music because (like mathematics) its complex interrelationships are recorded in a precise, universal notation. San Francisco Museum of Art label on the back, title given is "Abstraction"; date "in" is "6/29/42". There is a remnant of another label on the back, the little bit of text remaining is illegible.

Buchbeschreibung Wax, silica, and pure decorator colors on wooden board or Masonite, 15 7/8" wide x 18" high, ca. 1925-1930, signed "Kenneth Rexroth" in pencil, and framed by the artist. Undated and untitled. Loose in the frame, some cracks in the paint, otherwise in fine condition. Loose in the frame, some cracks in the paint, otherwise in fine condition This piece was given the date 1925-1930 for the UCSB Rexroth retrospective in 1981. A slightly North-of-centre white square is contained within a black magnet, with a red horizontal bar encasing the magnet, and a yellow magnet is poised at the bottom of the composition. The simple, flat geometrical forms are presented against a grey background. The magnets that appear in this piece are a recurring motif in Rexroth's paintings of this period, at times in fragmented or partial form, often used with geometric lines, shapes or grids, and contrasting tones or colors to suggest fields of opposing forces.
