The sexual perspective : homosexuality and art in the last 100 years in the West by Emmanuel Cooper( Book )

29 editions published between 1986 and 2006 in English and held by 977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1986 to wide critical acclaim, The Sexual Perspective was a ground breaking book, bringing together the work of artists who were gay.lesbian/queer/bisexual. For the first time painting, sculpture and photography which reflected the artist's sexual orientation was freely talked about and analysed, and placed within its artistic, social and historical context, challenging the conventional view that issues of sexual identity had no place within art. The Sexual Perspective traces the influence of Renaisssance artists on later generations of artists; it also looks at the way photography was appropriated to express a range of sexual interests, and scrutinises the codes to convey feelings which could not be openly shown. Artists discussed include Duncan Grant, Ethel Walker, Francis Bacon, David Hockney, Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplethorpe, Harmony Hammond and Jody Pinto. Emmanuel Cooper's broad approach includes the discussion of the lives of artists to illuminate their work, particularly in the view of social and legal constraints. Other themes include the linitations of representation and the role of art in defining and shaping attitudes.; Since the publicatio of The Sexual Perspective, two significant developments have taken place. In an original chapter, illustrated with new pictures, Cooper discusses increased Lesbian visibility within the visual arts, and the thoughtful response to the AIDS epidemic. Cooper writes clearly and entertaingly about art, sexuality and gender. Lavishly illustrated, often rarely seen images, the author's text is a vital contribution to current debates about art, gender, identity and sexuality

Bernard Leach : life and work by Emmanuel Cooper( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Widely recognized as the father of studio pottery, Bernard Leach (1887-1979) played a pioneering role in creating an identity for artist potters in Britain and around the world. Born in the East (Hong Kong) and educated in the West (England), throughout his life Leach perceived himself as a courier between the disparate cultures. His exquisite pots reflect the inspiration he drew from East and West as well as his response to the basic tenets of modernism - truth to materials, the importance of function to form, and simplicity of decoration." "Emmanuel Cooper draws on a wealth of previously unpublished documents and the recollections of the artist's family, friends and students to tell Leach's story. Cooper explores Leach's working methods, the themes of his pottery, his writings and philosophy, his recognition in Japan and Britain, and his continuing legacy, bringing into sharp focus a complex man who captured in his work as a potter the 'still centre' that often eluded him in his tumultuous personal life."--Jacket

People's art : working-class art from 1750 to the present day by Emmanuel Cooper( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work illuminates a currently unstudied element of our cultural heritage. For the first time ever it identifies and describes the abundance of visual art by skilled and unskilled workers from the Industrial Revolution through to the present day. With the coming of the Industrial Revolution, much of the traditional "folk art" of the rural societies disappeared for ever. But the void was soon filled by an urge to decorate and ornament in new ways as creative minds reponded to the different techniques and materials, reflecting the new living and working conditions of the industrial-based world. It is this work, made in, on and around the home and work place which is the subject of this book. Incorporating public celebrations, trade processions and festivals and the art of sailors, pensioners and canal boats, Emmanual Cooper not only delves into the past but demonstrates the vibrancy and creativity of people's art today. The fantastical grotto beside a basement, the giant ears on the side of a house, cultivated gardens, customized cars, the creation of a million private worlds, people's art has a rightful place in society
