Concepts of modern art : from Fauvism to postmodernism by Tony Richardson( Book )

71 editions published between 1974 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 2,440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No other book on modern and contemporary art presents in as authoritative and concise a manner the ideas that underlie the diverse and radical developments of the last hundred years. In this new edition, an important essay, "Postmodernism and the Art of Identity," not only brings the story of modern art right up to the present, but also introduces the unexpected development of returning to art the day-to-day meaning it may have lost, through engagement with issues raised in the representation of gender, sexuality, and AIDS. In other essays by some of the most internationally acclaimed writers on art, the extraordinary challenges of twentieth-century art are introduced and discussed with unparalleled lucidity, intelligence, and factual accuracy

David Hockney by David Hockney( Book )

40 editions published between 1976 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Hockney CH RA (b. 1937) has always been closely associated with Pop Art and California, where he has lived for much of his life. This major study of his work redefines him as an important painter of the English countryside, presenting his recent landscapes for the first time. In an attempt to renew contemporary art, Hockney has returned to painting in the open air, observing with honesty and intensity the scenery of his childhood in East Yorkshire. These works convey the drama and splendour of nature and the pathos of our relationship with it, an age-old subject treated by Hockney with a modern and spirited eye, often informed by his interest in photography and digital media. Exhibition: Royal Academy of Arts, London, 21 January - 9 April 2012

Paper pools by David Hockney( Book )

19 editions published between 1980 and 1986 in 4 languages and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paper Pools is the most recent major group of works by David Hockney, demonstrating his fascination with new techniques in the service of his passionate pursuit of creative representation. In 1976, Hockney had become obsessed with the technique of coloured etching, which he had been taught by the French print-maker Aldo Crommelynck and which resulted in the Blue Guitar series, among other inventive works. Now Hockney has applied himself with infectious enthusiasm to the making of Paper Pools, in which painting and paper-making are totally fused."--Preface

Antología de algunos artículos y ensayos de John Berger escritos a lo largo de la década de 1960.
