From Manet to Marinetti, modern art has explored and espoused acceleration. It is rarely if ever acknowledged that a contrary trajectory of deceleration has been pursued, from the Romantic painters with their solitary reveries to the “slow painting” of a Mark Rothko or Franz Gertsch. This volume recruits sociologists and scientists alongside an array of artists.
