Kitaj by Marco Livingstone( Book )

24 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"R. B. Kitaj is recognized as a modern master whose powerful, controversial and highly personal paintings, pastels and drawings reflect his unfashionable commitment to the human figure as a subject, and his complex involvement with the art of the past, with political and social issues, and with his own Jewish identity." "Marco Livingstone's monograph on Kitaj is based on a series of interviews and letters between the artist and the author, and provides full and up-to-date documentation of Kitaj's life and work. The artist himself has participated actively in the design of the book, and has written for it a series of articulate and revealing 'prefaces' to his own paintings." "For this expanded third edition, the author has written a new chapter surveying Kitaj's work in the 1990s, a tragic period dominated by his now famous confrontation with the critics of his 1994 retrospective exhibition, the subsequent death of his wife the artist Sandra Fisher, and his eventual return to the United States. This text is complemented by a new plate section illustrating 22 recent works, and three additional 'prefaces' written by the artist."--Jacket

"Kitaj is a painter who has always worked against the grain, generating massive controversies in the process. His talent as an artist, however, has secured him a place at the forefront of European and American painting for nearly half a century." "Ronald Brooks Kitaj was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1932. His early education culminated in a period of travel as a merchant seaman, after which time he served in Europe in the United States Army (1956-58). As a mature student Kitaj enrolled at the Ruskin School of Art, Oxford University, before transferring in 1959 to the Royal College of Art in London. There he assumed the informal leadership of an exceptionally talented group of students which was to become the Pop generation, and included David Hockney, Allen Jones and Patrick Caulfield. Kitaj's first solo exhibition was in London at Marlborough Fine Art in 1963, the gallery he continues to show with. From student days he made his home in London, until the public fracas surrounding his Tate Gallery retrospective (1994) and the sudden tragic death of his second wife, the painter Sandra Fisher, persuaded him to abandon England. In 1997 he moved to Los Angeles, where he continues to live and work."--Jacket

American-born artist R.B. Kitaj (1932-2007) was one of the most controversial artists of the second half of the twentieth century. His distinctive, highly personal and often challenging works drew on many influences ranging from literature to politics and film. The British museum holds a near complete set of the artist's proofs, the best representation of the artist's graphic works in the UK. Kitaj worked in England for almost forty years. It was in London that he had developed his early style and influenced many of his friends, including David Hockney, Lucian Freud and Frank Auerbach. This led Kitaj to coin the term 'school of London', later associated with this group of purely figurative artists. Exhibition: British Museum, London, UK (30.5.-1.9.2013)

Before he was gunned down in the Palace Chop House in Newark, NJ, October 1935, Arthur Flegenheimer, alias Dutch Schultz, was generally considered New York's Number One racketeer.

Three colours Cézanne by Matthew Collings( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Cézanne is considered the father of modern painting. In the South of France, his obstinacy as man and artist made him a pioneer of a new way of seeing. Returning always to the same subjects, the Mont Sainte-Victoire, bathing figures, or still lives, he abandoned central perspective, distorted body-shapes, and broke all the traditional rules of landscape painting. Now, a wide range of historians and commentators examine many of Cézanne's works in detail
