Richard Cork shows how avant-garde artists from Europe, Russia, and the United States challenged the recruiting posters and other propagandist views of the struggle by producing art that reflected the degradation of the trenches. Many of their images are now counted among the landmarks of early twentieth-century art, but his pioneering and lavishly illustrated book also examines a wealth of far less familiar work

"With an extensive account of the artist's life and work and hundreds of colour photographs throughout, Michael Craig-Martin is the definitive book on one of the most popular artists today and essential reading for anyone interested in the development of art in Britain over the past four decades."--Jacket

Wild thing : Epstein, Gaudier-Brzeska, Gill by Richard Cork( Book )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Epstein, Gill and Gaudier-Brzeska were pioneers of modern Bristish sculpture. In a burst of daring creativity before World War I, they revolutionized their field. The three artists produced sculpture whose sexual explicitness and boldness of form shocked contemporary viewers. Examples of their works illustrate this text, including Epstein's robotic masterpiece, 'Rock Drill', Gill's 'Ecstasy' and Gudier-Brzaeska's 'Birds Erect'.--Publisher

Rebecca Horn : moon mirror : site-specific installations, 1982-2005 by Doris von Drathen( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication focuses on an aspect of Rebecca Horn's extraordinarily diverse oeuvre that plays an important role in the formal constitution of her large sculptures and installations - the relationship between the work of art and its architectural setting. The book presents a selection ranging from works of the 1980s to sculptures and installations realized in 2005. In the early Measure Box (1970) and Rooms meet in mirrors (1974/75a) the human body is the measure of spatial perception. In the installation entitled Concert in Reverse (1987), the artist works in a building with a dubious political background - the "Zwinger," where countless people were tortured during the Nazi regime - exploring its history and creating a place of remembrance. In Moon Mirror (2003), a work installed in Pollenca, the artist creates a column of air between a fountain constructed with mirrors and an eddy of light beneath the dome of the convent church. At the point at which the Orient and the Occident meet, the moon is captured as a "vehicle of human vision and expressions." The viewer descends into the depths of the fountain and transcends his own horizon in order to survey the heavens anew. -- Dustjacket

Talking to artists is like embarking on voyages of discovery"--Award-winning art critic and curator Richard Cork was 18 when he chanced upon Picasso, drew his portrait and talked to him. This meeting sparked a life-long enthusiasm for talking to artists which has continued throughout Cork's distinguished career as an art writer and broadcaster. This collection of revealing conversations brings together for the first time interviews first recorded for BBC radio and as live events and takes in the pantheon of contemporary British artists, from Richard Hamilton and David Hockney to Grayson Perry and Tacita Dean. Whether drawing out Francis Bacon's musings on the afterlife, or the story behind Tracy Emin's My Bed, Cork is an insightful and sympathetic interviewer
