Master drawings from the Yale University Art Gallery by Yale University( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book highlights the collection of European drawings at the Yale University Art Gallery, one of America's premier university museums. From intimate studies to exquisite finished compositions, this selection of works documents the history of European drawing practices beginning with late-medieval model books and progressing to the verge of the modern period. The accompanying text - written by a team of scholars - offers a unique introduction to various critical and technical aspects of the study of master drawings, brought to life through drawings from a range of national schools and in a variety of media." "Among the drawings examined in this handsomely produced volume are an animated pen and ink sketch by Giulio Romano, a pastoral landscape by Claude Lorrain, a forceful and humorous caricature by Guercino, a scene from the epic poem Orlando Furioso by Jean-Honore Fragonard, and a delicate portrait by Edgar Degas."--Jacket
Witness : art and civil rights in the sixties by Teresa A./ Jones, Kellie/ Choi, Connie H./ Scruggs, Dalila/ Young, Cynthia A Carbone( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over 100 works by African American artists and others from the 1960s Civil Rights Movement show powerful responses in art to events of black history. Marking the fiftieth anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Witness accompanies an exhibition organized by the Brooklyn Museum and demonstrates the array of aesthetic strategies through which 1960s artists engaged in the struggle for racial justice. Personal recollections from artists including Mark di Suvero and Jack Whitten intertwine with rich illustration, engaging essays, and documentary photos--including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and freedom marchers on the Selma-to-Montgomery March, and Gordon Parks's photos of the Black Panther Party and Muhammad Ali--along with a comprehensive chronology of the period from 1954 to the 1970s. African American artists featured include Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, David Hammons, and Melvin Edwards. Represented as well are notable artists who recorded aspects of the Civil Rights struggle, including Richard Avedon, Bruce Davidson, Andy Warhol, Robert Indiana, and Philip Guston. This collection of emotionally resonant artworks lets us see the Civil Rights movement with new eyes and is a fitting tribute to a turbulent period in history, whose struggles continue to shape America."--Publisher information
Birth of the cool : California art, design, and culture at midcentury by Elizabeth Armstrong( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Converging lines : Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt by Lucy R Lippard( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt formed a close friendship between the late 1950s and Hesse's death in 1970. Converging Lines celebrates this friendship and offers an illuminating look at their close-knit New York circle. Whereas previous scholarship has examined LeWitt's impact on Hesse, this is the first publication to demonstrate that the artists influenced each other's art and lives in reciprocal and profound ways. Richly documented, this book includes a personal recollection by Lucy R. Lippard, a distinguished American art writer and critic who was a close friend of both artists. Also included are reproductions of 39 postcards LeWitt wrote to Hesse during his international travels, along with a poignant five-page letter that he sent Hesse, attesting to his belief in her talent; a previously unpublished interview from 2001 with LeWitt about his relationship with Hesse; and an illustrated chronology drawing upon interviews, photographs, and primary documents from the time. Shedding new light on the careers and personal lives of Hesse and LeWitt, this publication explores the deep connections between two of the 20th century's most important artists.'--Publisher's website

Lifelike by Siri Engberg( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 218 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
Epic tales from ancient India : paintings from the San Diego Museum of Art by San Diego Museum of Art( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Exploring the topic of narrativity in Indian art, this beautiful and deeply researched book considers illustrations to the Bhagavata Purana, the Ramayana, the Ragamala, and a range of texts in the Persian language, notably the Shahnama. Featuring stunning reproductions of paintings made between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries from the Edwin Binney 3rd Collection at The San Diego Museum of Art, the publication includes thorough and fascinating explanations of the narrative of each text, including how that narrative is visually conveyed. Essays examine why these particular stories are so enduring, why patrons may have chosen to have a copy of a particular text made for their own collections, and how artists responded to the challenge of creating new versions of venerable classics"--
Luca Cambiaso, 1527-1585 by Luca Cambiaso( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Luca Cambiaso was one of the major figures in the artistic panorama of the mid-16th century, when Genoa, in a period of great vitality and flourishing economy, confirmed its leading role and the prestige of its aristocracy both in Italy and in Europe. This text provides a comprehensive overview of Cambiaso's life and work
Recovering beauty : the 1990s in Buenos Aires( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this first comprehensive presentation of art from the 1990s in Argentina, Recovering Beauty places the Centro Cultural Rojas (CCR) at the core of this creative period. The CCR, or "El Rojas" as it was later known, opened in 1989 as a venue for emerging artists. The "El Rojas" artists epitomized a collective will to move beyond a grim recent past by creating introspective narratives that looked towards the ordinary as a source of inspiration. Artists such as Feliciano Centurión, Sebastián Gordin, Jorge Gumier Mier, Miguel Harte, Graciela Hasper, Benito Laren, Marcelo Pombo, Cristina Schiavi and Omar Schiliro espoused conceptions of beauty, color and fantasy, and the projection of psychology as artistic expression. Recovering Beauty is the first sustained examination of this fascinating moment in Argentine culture, which chimes with trends towards the fantastical and the decorative in American art of the late 1990s and 2000s."--Amazon

Nina Katchadourian : curiouser( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nina Katchadourian: Curiouser accompanies the Blanton Museum's mid-career survey of the work of Brooklyn-based artist Nina Katchadourian, organized by Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art Veronica Roberts. The book reveals the artist's humor, ingenuity, and ability to unearth the creative potential that "lurks within the mundane," to use her words. The diverse range of art it highlights includes Mended Spiderwebs, a series of photographs documenting the artist's attempts to weave red string into dilapidated spiderwebs, and Under Pressure, a recent video that Katchadourian took of herself lip-synching to David Bowie and Freddy Mercury's duet using her mobile phone in the cramped quarters of an airplane lavatory. We learn about art projects she has made with the assistance not only of arachnids and rock stars, but also United Nations translators, birdcall experts, librarians, sports announcers, parking lot attendants, an accent elimination coach, and even her own parents. This exhibition catalogue marks the first significant publication on Katchadourian's work and features essays by Jeffrey Kastner and Veronica Roberts, as well as an interview between the artist and Stuart Horodner. In addition, it includes Katchadourian's accounts of fourteen individual works paired with creative essays from a multidisciplinary team of contributors including artist Ann Hamilton, animal behavior expert Laurel Braitman, and sound art scholar Christoph Cox. Through these diverse perspectives, readers are introduced to Katchadourian's unbridled curiosity and puckish wit"--

Reimagining space : the Park Place Gallery Group in 1960s New York by Linda Dalrymple Henderson( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teresita Fernández : blind landscape by Teresita Fernández( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teresita Fernández is internationally known for her immersive installations and evocative large-scale sculptures that address space, light, and the perception of change. The exhibition is curated by USF Institute for Research in Art Chief Curator, David Louis Norr and will present a spectrum of the artist's most recent and ambitious projects, including a new sculpture and a room sized installation created specifically for this exhibition. Teresita Fernández, one of the most accomplished artists of her generation, is recognized for her deft ability to transform common materials and processes into dazzling cinematic illusions, blending abstraction, reflection, and transparency into potent configurations of projection and play. Nature and perception are the schematic sources for Fernandez' picturesque materializations. Clouds, trees, water, and fire--in patterned formations of polished stainless steel, glass, plastic, and thread--double as screens, mirrors, and lenses, and vacillate between object and optical phenomena. Much like shadows or ghosts, Fernandez' doubled forms reside in the folds and margins of perception--a tangled overlay of absence and presence, nature and artifice. "I am interested in the projection of the body, in an imaginary, kinesthetic way, penetrating history and distance cinematically, almost like a daydream," she explains. "It's as if, through visual pleasure, your gaze positions you in a place without actually being there." Indeed, for Fernández, how one sees is as relevant as what one sees. Featured among the works in the exhibition is Vertigo (sotto en su) from 2007. Made in collaboration with USF Graphicstudio, Vertigo is comprised of layers of precision-cut, highly polished metal, woven into a reflective and intricate arboreal pattern suspended high above the viewer--not unlike an immense, cascading tree branch. The multiple planes of space, through which the viewer looks, become visible simultaneously, vacillating between object and optical phenomena, continuously disassembling and reassembling. "The idea that one must turn away from nature in order to see it is a loaded concern at the crux of Fernández' new works," states David Norr. "Nature, for Fernández, is a fabrication of culture where cinematic illusions, industrial design and lasting ephemeral experience intertwine--collapsing artifice and nature into prismatic experience
Francisco Matto : the modern & the mythic( Book )

Tales of the Brothers Grimm by Jacob Grimm( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For 'Tales of the Brothers Grimm' thirty-six celebrated and lesser-known of the unsanitized fairy tales collected by the illustrious brothers were carefully chosen by artist Natalie Frank, re-interpret-ed in seventy-five gouache and chalk pastel drawings, and cast in a Surrealist dreamscape. This will be the largest collection of Grimm's Fairy Tales ever illustrated by a fine artist. Frank's irreverent palette, sophisticated use of color, and inventive depiction of these dark, far from storybook narratives, capture the original stories with a contemporary and unflinching eye. Each of the tales opens with a handdrawn title page, is framed by a unique border, and small drawings punctuate each story, all in the tradition of classic fairy tale editions. The foremost Grimm scholar, Jack Zipes, introduces the book and contextualizes these stories and drawings within a history of the Brothers Grimm, its illustrations, and the tradition of the fairy tale. A complex and unique world of the imagination emerges from the pairing of these tales with Frank's drawings, assembled by the celebrated designer, Marian Bantjes. Additional texts include a conversation between the artist and director Julie Taymor, as well as essays by Feminist art historian Linda Nochlin and curator Claire Gilman"--Publisher's description
1242 : anatomy of drawing and space (brain trash) by James Drake( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Three years ago, the artist James Drake (born 1946) began the ambitious project of creating 1,242 drawings that would trace and reference all of the developments of his multifaceted career. Known as both a sculptor and video artist, Drake has always considered draftsmanship to be a key to his process, and this body of drawings does not disappoint. It is both a fascinating tour of Drake's creative thinking and a testament to the simple power of graphite and ink on paper in the hands of a master of the craft. The volume is published to accompany a touring exhibition (titled The Anatomy of Drawing and Space) opening at The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego in July 2014--the largest show of Drake's work to date" -- Publisher's website
