Question and answer
Q: Why was Barnett Newman's painting Cathedra attacked in 1997?
A: American abstract painter Barnett Newman wrote in 1943, ?The painter is concerned . . . with the presentation into the world mystery. His imagination is therefore attempting to dig into metaphysical secrets. [ To that extent, his art is concerned with the sublime. It is a religious art which through symbols will catch the basic truth of life.? Newman?s work has been thrust into the spotlight
through a strange and unfortunate sequence of events, episodes of vandalism, which are the risk of the public presentation of art. The principle of museum exhibition begs the question of what is ?the public?s art.? Museums serve the public interest by collecting and preserving works, and then presenting them for all who pass through their doors. The work of Barnett Newman offers a case study in the idea of art preserved for public interest, in a rather troubling way because of the attacks on his work. Most people are believed to be afraid of the painting that was done by Barnett Newman's while others were just jealous of his work. The expressions on his art work were at times composed of frightening ideas. ]
