Georgia O'Keeffe : abstraction by Georgia O'Keeffe ( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although Georgia O'Keefe (1887-1986) has long been celebrated as a central figure in twentieth-century art, the abstract works she created throughout her career have remained overlooked by critics and the public in favor of her representational subjects. In 1915, O'Keeffe leaped into abstraction with a group of charcoal drawings that were among the most radical works of art produced in the United States at that time. In these and subsequent abstractions, O'Keeffe sought to transcribe her ineffable thoughts and emotions. While her output of abstract work declined after 1930, she returned to abstraction in the mid-1940s with a new vocabulary that provided a precedent for a younger generation of abstractionists. By devoting itself to this largely unexplored area of her work, Georgia O'Keeffe: Abstraction is an overdue acknowledgment of her place as one of America's first abstract artists. In addition to rethinking O'Keefe's contribution to the development of abstract American art, this book chronicles the shifts and changes in subject matter and style over the span of her long career. It adds significant new insight into her work and life, reproducing excerpts of previously sealed letters written by O'Keeffe to photographer and gallerist Alfred Stieglitz, whom she married in 1924. These previously unpublished letters, along with other primary documents referenced by the authors, offer an intimate glimpse into her creative method and intentions as an artist
Robert Indiana : beyond Love by Robert Indiana ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With essays by René Paul Barilleaux and Sasha Nicholas Robert Indiana's popular LOVE works have made the esteemed Pop artist a household name. Their fame and ubiquity have also served to eclipse the rest of his dynamic, conceptually charged work. 'Robert Indiana: Beyond LOVE' is a compelling reassessment of the artist's contributions to American art during his long and prolific career. Indiana has explored the power of language, American identity and personal history for five decades. Although visually dazzling and apparently cheerful on the surface, his imagery has a depth and a darkness that draws on his own biography as well as on the myths, history and literature of the United States.
