Romare Bearden, American modernist by Romare Bearden( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fourteen essays by curators, art historians, and artists consider the work of painter Romare Bearden (1911-1988) in the contexts of American and international modernism as well as African-American art history. Topics fall into four main areas: the relationship of Bearden's work to literature, jazz, and modern dance; the sources of his imagery, including radical politics, religion, and southern black culture; his professional development and influence; and the influence of the avant-garde, including cubism and Pop Art, on his paintings and collages
Figuring history : Robert Colescott, Kerry James Marshall, Mickalene Thomas( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary artists Robert Colescott (1925-2009), Kerry James Marshall (b. 1955), and Mickalene Thomas (b. 1971) are distinguished by their attention to a history of representation, which they re-visit and revise to reflect on individual and collective Black experience. Equally engaged with social and political histories, and the history of art, Colescott, Marshall, and Thomas have created works that at times poignantly and satirically critique dominant narratives and posit alternatives. By considering these artists together, this thought-provoking book expands our understanding of contemporary history painting, a genre first defined during the 17th century and known for didactic paintings that often depicted Biblical or mythological subjects, and expressed the tastes and narratives of a ruling class. Colescott, Marshall, and Thomas marry appreciation of these traditional forms of representation to a deep understanding of contemporary American culture to create insightful works that disrupt historic narratives and read canonic art history against the grain

Horace Pippin : the way I see it by Horace Pippin( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Horace Pippin's response to the question of what made him a great painter: "I paint it the way I see it." This exciting new publication will look closely at Pippin (1888-1946) as an artist who was embraced by the art world, yet remained independent, creating and upholding a unique aesthetic sensibility while also candidly, if subtly, expressing his opinions on a wide range of social issues. A self-taught master of form, colour and composition, Pippin vividly depicted a range of subject matter, from scenes of war, history and religion, to sporting scenes, floral still lifes and intimate family moments. Accompanying a major exhibition at the Brandywine River Museum of Art, the book will be the first examination of the artist's work in twenty years and is an opportunity to re-examine Pippin with fresh eyes. His development as a self-aware, self-taught artist will be explored in-depth, looking at the rich pictorial language and multi-layered narratives of his paintings. 00Exhibition: Brandywine River Museum of Art, Chaddsford, USA (25.04. - 19.07.2015)
Procession : the art of Norman Lewis by Norman Lewis( Book )

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

Procession: The Art of Norman Lewis (1909-1979), is the first comprehensive museum overview of this influential artist, who explored multiple styles and whose extraordinary work spanned several decades of the 20th century. Norman Lewis was a pivotal figure in American art, a participant in the Harlem art community, an innovative contributor to Abstract Expressionism, and a politically-conscious activist. Bringing together works from major international public and private collections, the exhibition is organized with the full support of Lewis' family. It includes approximately 90 paintings and works on paper dating from the early 1930s through the late 1970s, as well as archival materials from the artist's estate. The exhibition highlights the diverse visual apparatus Lewis explored in parallel groups of works over the course of his career.The "procession" in the exhibition's title evokes Lewis' intriguing painterly process and highlights a prominent thread that runs through his oeuvre: the procession ritual. Processions were both celebratory and terrifying for Lewis, equally carrying allusions to carnevale and Ku Klux Klan marches. Such duality was at the heart of his artistic practice, which consistently employed modes of representation and abstraction; geometric and organic form; and emotional content ranging from joy to rage.Procession considers the complexity of Lewis' art in its entirety: It examines the role of figuration within Abstract Expressionism, considers how Lewis integrated social issues with abstraction, and highlights the surprising and expressive palette the artist championed throughout his career. -- Text from PAFA's website (see link)
