Image duplicator : Roy Lichtenstein and the emergence of pop art by Michael Lobel( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roy Lichtenstein's distinctive paintings of the early 1960s are synonymous with the Pop art movement. These bold, oversized images inspired by newspaper advertisements and comic book scenes have been taken as reflecting the artist's fascination with the links between art and popular culture. In this book, Michael Lobel challenges this circumscribed view of Lichtenstein's work, offering a set of compelling new interpretations that reveal the artist's confrontation with a far wider range of issues." "This illustrated book makes available for the first time an array of archival materials about Lichtenstein and his work, including photographs of the artist and many newly discovered sources for his imagery in the comics and advertisements of the early 1960s. It also provides new information on the context of the artist's Pop paintings in relation to contemporary developments in advertising culture, mechanical reproduction, and visual technologies."--Jacket
James Rosenquist : pop art, politics, and history in the 1960s by Michael Lobel( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: James Rosenquist's paintings, with their billboard-sized images of commercial subjects, are utterly emblematic of 1960s Pop Art. Their provocative imagery also touches on some of the major political and historical events of that turbulent decade-from the Kennedy assassination to the war in Vietnam. In the first full-length scholarly examination of Rosenquist's art from that period, Michael Lobel weaves together close visual analysis, a wealth of archival research, and a consideration of the social and historical contexts in which these paintings were produced to offer bold new readings of a body of work that helped redefine art in the 1960s. Bringing together a range of approaches, James Rosenquist provides a compelling perspective on the artist and on the burgeoning consumer culture of postwar America
John Sloan : drawing on illustration by Michael Lobel( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American realist artist John Sloan (1871-1951) is best known for his portrayals of daily life in early 20th-century New York and as a member of The Eight and the Ashcan School, alongside peers like Robert Henri, Everett Shinn and George Luks. Sloan's artistic approach was shaped by his experience as a commercial illustrator, a type of work that inaugurated his professional career - at newspapers like the Philadelphia Press and later for mass-market magazines - and which he pursued even after he turned his focus to painting. Michael Lobel explores the impact of Sloan's illustrating on his wider output, including his paintings, his drawings for the radical journal 'The Masses', and his response to the watershed 1913 Armory Show

Sturtevant : double trouble by Peter Eleey( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known for her early repetitions of the work of her contemporaries including Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, James Rosenquist and Andy Warhol, Elaine Sturtevant (1924-2014) turned the visual logic of Pop art back on itself, using Duchamp's model of the readymade to probe uncomfortably at the workings of art history in real time. Yet the aspect of her work that allowed her to be described as the one artist who can't be copied--her chameleon-like embrace of other artists' art--is also what has allowed her to be largely overlooked in the history of postwar American art. Featuring previously unpublished drawings and sketches from the artists archive, the book includes an essay by the exhibition curator that provides a comprehensive overview of the artist's practice while situating it more concretely within American culture
Lifelike by Siri Engberg( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is it real? Lifelike invites a close examination of art since the late 1960s based on commonplace objects and situations that are startlingly realistic, often playful and sometimes surreal--works that investigate the quieter side of the quotidian. While artists such as Vija Celmins, Rudolf Stingel and Paul Sietsema employ illusionistic painting and drawing, others' use of materials is surprising--Thomas Demand's video of what appears to be a rainstorm is made from animated candy wrappers; Susan Collis' sculpture of construction debris is fashioned from exotic hardwoods, mother of pearl and silver. What binds these artists together is their rejection of the easy route technology might offer in favor of labor-intensive fabrication. Featuring painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, video and installations by more than 40 artists, Lifelike is the first publication to address the recent history of artists using these strategies across media

Subversion and surrealism in the art of Honoré Sharrer( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers the first critical reassessment of an artist whose mature oeuvre constitutes a rich and often disquieting critique that is equal parts wit, seduction, and bite. Honoré Sharrer (1920-2009) was a major figure in the years surrounding World War II, though her commitment to leftist ideals and an alternate trajectory of surrealism put her at increasing odds with the political and artistic climate of the time"--
