James Rosenquist : pop art, politics, and history in the 1960s by Michael Lobel ( Book )
8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: James Rosenquist's paintings, with their billboard-sized images of commercial subjects, are utterly emblematic of 1960s Pop Art. Their provocative imagery also touches on some of the major political and historical events of that turbulent decade-from the Kennedy assassination to the war in Vietnam. In the first full-length scholarly examination of Rosenquist's art from that period, Michael Lobel weaves together close visual analysis, a wealth of archival research, and a consideration of the social and historical contexts in which these paintings were produced to offer bold new readings of a body of work that helped redefine art in the 1960s. Bringing together a range of approaches, James Rosenquist provides a compelling perspective on the artist and on the burgeoning consumer culture of postwar America

James Rosenquist by Judith Goldman ( Book )

From the books cover: James Rosenquist's unlikely constellations of familiar, oversized images which took the art world by storm in the 1960s-when pop art had not yet found its name-remain today the primary icons of those years. Since that time, Rosenquist has proved that the flatness, the visual punning, the banality of pop can yield sensual, affecting, and profound images which wholly defy categorization. It has been twenty years since the oddly juxtaposed fragments of F-111 confounded critics, and in that time Rosenquist has distinguished himself for his versatility as he had initially for his vision; his endurance, along with his distinctive vocabulary, has made him seem to many the most American painter working today. In studying Rosenquist's work, Judith Goldman has had the advantage of many conversations with the artist. Coming as close as anyone has come to the source of the ubiquitous lipsticks and fingernails, tomatoes and gears, fragmented faces, razor blades, and fields of spaghetti, Goldman has followed Rosenquist from New York to Florida, to his native North Dakota, and back again. In James Rosenquist she paints a portrait of the hyperkinetic artist as he himself might have painted it. James Rosenquist's reputation has grown steadily over the years, and his influence can be seen on a generation of younger painters. In this elegantly written and lavishly illustrated book Judith Goldman marshals facts, feelings, aesthetics, wisdom, and humor to illuminate the nature of his achievement

Who gets to call it art? the legend of Henry Geldzahler, 1935-1994 ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Henry Geldzahler (1935-94), star curator and cultural impresario, lived a life worth examining. The first curator of the Department of 20th-Century Art at the Metropolitan Museum, first director of visual arts for the National Endowment of the Arts, and the first full-time commissioner of cultural affairs for New York City, his landmark 1969 show at the Metropolitan is still remembered with awe. "New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970" filled 35 galleries with more than 400 groundbreaking works of contemporary art. This film is not a full biographical examination of this singular figure's life, but rather a portrait in profile, as many of 'his' artists talk about Geldzahler and what his friendship meant to them

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: Lipsticks, automobiles, dishwashers, men in business suits, spaghetti, rockets, airplanes, hairdryers, ice cream cones and pigtailed girls. James Rosenquist has always known how to combine these seemingly disparate but always all-American elements into whirlwind, billboard-sized collages of airbrushed surreal euphoria, slamming colors, patterns and objects into one another with the eye of an advertising man and the heart of a Pop artist. This momentous catalogue, published to accompany the first in-depth survey of the artist's work since 1972, will give long-overdue, in-depth attention to Rosenquist's singular achievement in American art. Extensive illustrations cover major works in diverse media, including work on paper that reveals the artist's process, as well as extensive new and archival photography. Essays focus on areas that have only been superficially addressed in the literature to date, bringing the level of Rosenquist scholarship up to that of his Pop Art contemporaries. Curator Walter Hopps provides an overview of the artist's career; Julia Blaut considers the artist's source collages in the context of 20th-century collage; Ruth E. Fine addresses Rosenquist's prints; art collector and former aeronautics researcher Eugene E. Epstein relates the artist's work to scientific phenomena. Also included are a definitive biography, exhibition history and illustrated chronology
