Morandi's objects by Joel Meyerowitz( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Spring 2015, the photographer Joel Meyerowitz sat at the work table in Giorgio Morandi's Bologna home, in the exact spot where the painter had sat for over 40 years making his quiet, sublime still lifes. Here Meyerowitz looked at, touched, studied and connected with the more than 250 objects that Morandi painted. Using only the warm natural light in the room, he photographed Morandi's objects: vases, shells, pigment-filled bottles, silk flowers, tins, funnels, watering cans. In the photographs, each object sits on Morandi's table, which still bears the marks the painter drew to set the positions of his subjects. In the background is the same paper that Morandi left on the wall, now brittle and yellow with age. Meyerowitz's portraits of these dusty, aged objects are not only works of art themselves, but they offer insight into the humble subjects that Morandi transformed into his subtle and luminous paintings.--From publisher's description
Cézanne's objects : Joel Meyerowitz by Joel Meyerowitz( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some years ago, while working on a book commission about Provence, Joel Meyerowitz visited Cézanne's studio in Aix-en-Provence. While there, he experienced a flash of understanding about Cézanne's art. Cézanne had painted the studio walls a dark gray, mixing the color himself. Consequently, every object in the studio seemed to be absorbed into the gray of the background. There were no telltale reflections around the edges of the objects, so there was nothing that could separate them from the background itself. Meyerowitz suddenly saw how Cézanne, making his small, patch-like brush marks, moved from the object to the background, and back again to the objects, without the illusion of perspective. After all, Cézanne was the original voice of 'flatness.' Meyerowitz decided to take each of the objects in Cézanne's studio and view them against the gray wall (managing to obtain permission from the Director of the Atelier no-one had touched these objects in ages). His impulse was to place each one in the exact same spot on his marble-topped table and just make a 'dumb' record of it. He then decided to arrange them in rows, almost as if they were back on his shelf above the table, and made a grid of five rows with five objects on each row, with Cézanne's hat as the centerpiece

Morandi's objects by Joel Meyerowitz( Book )

Meyerowitz's portraits of these dusty, aged objects are not only works of art themselves, but they offer insight into the humble subjects that Morandi transformed into his subtle and luminous paintings. Joel Meyerowitz (born 1938) is a street photographer and portrait and landscape photographer. The New York native began photographing in color in 1962 and was an early advocate of the use of color at a time when there was significant resistance to the idea of color photography as serious art. Many of his photographs are icons of modern photography, and he is considered one of the most influential modern photographers and representatives of the New Color Photography of the 1960s and '70s. His work has appeared in over 350 exhibitions around the world and is in the collections of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art, New York and many other museums worldwide
From dusk to Dawn by Maggie Barrett( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If you had to choose one thing to believe in and defend its validity in today's world, what would it be? In From Dusk to Dawn six characters trapped in an isolated inn on the edge of a cliff at the turn of the millennium make up a game to play until they're rescued. Reminiscent of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf From Dusk to Dawn explores the nature of personal belief and its effect on strangers and loved ones. In the process, relationships teeter and family secrets are exposed. Over the course of twelve hours, a British ex-military man and his wife of thirty years, a New York surgeon and his artist lover, a recently jilted thirty-year-old lawyer and a twenty-year-year old waitress who isn't always what she appears to be come to understand that belief often has nothing to do with truth. Literally a cliff-hanger, From Dusk to Dawn will keep you on the edge of your seat and inspire you to think about what you believe in as opposed to believing in what you think
