Balthus by Balthus( Book )

35 editions published in 2001 in 3 languages and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Balthazar Klossowski, known as Balthus, is largely regarded as one of the twentieth century's most important painters - as well as the most scandalous. His dreamlike canvases populated with pubescent girls in provocative poses garnered him both praise and scorn from artists and critics alike. This volume, edited by renowned scholar Jean Clair, includes more than 400 color plates and includes essays by the premier experts on Balthus's work and life as well as recollections of the artist by his colleagues and friends."--Jacket

Henri Cartier-Bresson by Henri Cartier-Bresson( Book )

31 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henri Cartier-Bresson published a photographic collection entitled "The Europeans" in 1955, a portait of the postwar continent whose occupants lived among ruins and still bore the mark of hunger. In this new volume of images spanning a period from the late 1920s to the 1970s, the celebrated photographer has surveyed a region whose separate parts have, over the years, begun to take on a "family likeness." Documenting the face of Europe at a time when the boundaries between individual countries appeared to be breaking down, Cartier-Bresson traveled from the Scandinavian shield to the Yugloslavian "karst," from the Breton granites to the Irish bogs, scorning frontiers and custom posts and finding fragments of a greater identiy that defied the sometime dangerous pursuit of nationalism. The unity and compassion of his eye are imposed on the infinite diversity of cultures, on the complexity of hills and valleys, on the variety of fields and foliage, and on the jumble of roads and rivers. In both countryside and city, people inhabit the landscape, sometimes alone, a face, a single gaze, but often couples, twin figures, mirrored individuals, linked solitudes. These photographs speak of the same daily ceremony, of the sweet and painful doggedness of people in the on going business of living, whether English opera-goers in formal evening wear, Polish priests in alb or cassock, or Abruzzi peasant shrouded in the black of their cloaks and hats. With his remarkable ability to capture the fragile reality of European life, Henri Cartier-Bresson once again underscores his reputation as one of the twentieth century's most influential and original photographers

The great parade : portrait of the artist as clown by Jean Clair( Book )

12 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The circus is a dazzling world filled with acrobats and harlequins, tumblers and riders, monsters and celestial creatures. Now this engaging book sets that world in a new light, examining how painters, sculptors, and photographers from the eighteenth century to the present have used the circus as a springboard for their imaginative expression and have envisioned the clown as a metaphor for the modern artist. The book presents more than 175 works by such artists as Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Rouault, Picasso, Chagall, and Leger. Some of these are masterful works shown for the first time rangiing from the 18-meter stage curtain Picasso designed in 1917 for Erik Satie's ballet Parade to more intimate works such as Nadar and Tournachon's photographs of Pierrot as played by celebrated mime Charles Debureau

La exposición aborda la iconografía de la melancolía -el humor negro-, ofreciendo una nueva aproximación a la historia de la enfermedad saturnina y mostrando cómo ese humor sagrado ha configurado el genio europeo: si la melancolía es la conciencia de la limitación del conocimiento humano frente a un mundo que se percibe como ilimitado, una de los anhelos esenciales del arte es superar esa barrera y alcanzar nuevos horizontes. La melancolía y el genio inherente a ella hacen posible el arte

The 1930s : the making of "the new man" by Jean Clair( Book )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the heels of the Roaring Twenties, the 1930s, which spanned from the economic crisis of 1929 to the outbreak of the Second World War, was a dark decade. Beyond similiar governmental, mechanisms, these regimes shared an ideology: the will to create what they called the "New Man."" "This decade began with a more or less innocent dream of the theme of the original egg, germination, the harmonious growth of a fabric both biological and social, but ended with the nightmarish discovery of the corpses in the concentration camps by the armies of liberation in 1945"--Jacket
