William Eggleston : democratic camera, photographs and video, 1961-2008 by Elisabeth Sussman( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elvis's Graceland, a freezer stuffed with food, a Gulf gasoline sign standing in a deserted rural landscape, these are only a few of the iconic images captured by the "democratic camera" of photographer William Eggleston. Not only has he drawn upon images so telling of American culture, he has produced them with an intensity and balance of color that have helped elevate the entire field of color photography to a fine art, especially since his 1976 exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. Drawing together Eggleston̕s famous and lesser known works, this lavishly illustrated catalogue is the first to examine both his photography and videos. Of particular relevance are his black and white images from the late 1950s and 1960s, which helped shape his color photography, as well as the relationship between his provocative video recordings of 1970s Memphis nightlife and his later work. Included are reproductions of newly restored prints, executed specifically for the exhibition. Filled with new and challenging contributions to scholarship and accompanying the first major U.S. survey of his work, this catalogue will prove the standard reference for Eggleston's photographs for years to come

Ellsworth Kelly : a retrospective by Ellsworth Kelly( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive monograph - published on the occasion of the first complete retrospective of Kelly's work since 1973, organized at the Guggenheim Museum by Diane Waldman, the museum's Deputy Director and Senior Curator - is a definitive investigation of Kelly's career, from his earliest works to the present. Waldman, author of numerous monographs on Modern and contemporary art, has brought together more than 399 of Kelly's most important paintings, sculptures, and works on paper (including several that have never been published): early abstract paintings and reliefs; figurative drawings; collages; photographs; paintings featuring a synthesis of biomorphic and geometric form; single-panel and multipanel paintings; shaped panels; and many of his sculptures, including the first two (from 1959) through the most recent (from 1996). her essay - an overview of Kelly's entire career - and four additional essays on various aspects of his oeuvre by Roberta Bernstein, Carter Ratcliff, Mark Rosenthal, and Clare Bell (plus a Chronology, Exhibition History, and Bibliography) explain the important relationships among his works in various mediums, and reveal why and how Kelly has produced some of the most distinctive art of our time
Lovis Corinth by Lovis Corinth( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in German and English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lovis Corinth was one of the most exciting artists to emerge from turn-of-the-century Germany. Together with Max Beckmann and Oskar Kokoschka, he became one of the greatest figurative painters of the early twentieth century. An outsider of astonishing individuality, he has resisted categorization by art historians in terms of Impressionism, Expressionism, and other movements." "Corinth began his career in the realist tradition in the 1880's, but he was soon at the vanguard of change. Following a period in Munich when his religious and mythological paintings brought him his first taste of fame, Corinth moved to Berlin in 1901, where he spearheaded the protest against Kaiser Wilhelm II's official policy on art." "Towards the latter part of his career, Corinth's work clearly reflects his reactions to his own illness and to World War I. Objects are caught up in a play of broad, energetic brush strokes, the paste-like layers of paint applied in sweeping, parallel movements to produce the characteristic hatching that became his hallmark. These later works - mainly landscapes, portraits and self-portraits - continued to be an inspiration to representatives of later movements." "Lovis Corinth provides a comprehensive analysis of the artist still little known outside Europe. The Munich and Berlin years, his sources and inspiration, his subject matter, his painting and drawing are examined by authors from America, Britain, and Germany. The book is beautifully illustrated with numerous colour reproductions of his oil paintings, watercolours, drawings, and graphic works, providing the definitive illustrated reference on the artist."--Jacket

Merz : in the beginning was Merz : from Kurt Schwitters to the present day by Kurt Schwitters( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Typologies by Bernd Becher( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bernd and Hilla Becher's photography can be considered conceptual art, typological study, and topological documentation. Their work can be linked to the Neue Sachlichkeit movement of the 1920s and to such masters of German photography as Karl Blossfeldt, August Sander, and Albert Renger-Patzsch. Their photographs of industrial structures, taken over the course of forty years, are the most important body of work in independent objective photography. A keynote of their contributions to "industrial archaeology" has been their creation of typologies of different types of buildings; this book, which accompanies a major retrospective exhibition, collects all known Becher studies of industrial building types and presents them as a visual encyclopedia." "Each chapter is devoted to a different structure - water towers, coal bunkers, winding towers, breakers (ore, coal, and stone), lime kilns, grain elevators, blast furnaces, steel mills, and factory facades. These are organized according to typologies, most of which are presented as tableaux or suites of about twelve images each. The book contains more than 1,500 individual images. The accompanying text by Armin Zweite is an essential art historical consideration of the Bechers' work. This ultimate Becher book stands as a capstone to the Bechers' unique body of work."--Jacket

Move : choreographing you : art and dance since the 1960s by Haus der Kunst München( Book )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Move : choreographing you explores the interaction between visual art and dance since the 1960s. Focusing on visual artists and choreographers who create sculptures and installations that direct the movements of audiences, making them dancers as much as active participants, Move sets out to show that choreography is not merely about the notation of movement on paper or in film, but that it may be equally implied by sculptural works and installations. The publication presents some of the diverse yet interconnected ways that visual art and choreography have come together over the last fifty years

Turning back : a photographic journal of re-exploration by Robert Adams( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two hundred years ago Lewis and Clark reported finding in the American Northwest a vast forest of ancient evergreens. In Turning Back Robert Adams looks again at the region's trees, discovering evidence both of America's failure and of a continuing promise." "President Jefferson's primary charge to Lewis and Clark was to prepare the way for American commerce. They tried to do this, as well as make money for themselves. Historians still speculate about why, upon his return, Lewis lapsed into depression and apparently committed suicide. "Going east," Adams suggests, "was more difficult than going west."" "What is the future? Turning Back documents two kinds of predictive evidence. On the one hand we observe the results of greed so unrestrained that they are indistinguishable from those of nihilism. On the other we see what still lives unharmed, whether by our design or neglect or Providence; in these pictures the tone is celebratory, as in a prayer book."--Jacquette

Postwar : art between the Pacific and the Atlantic, 1945-1965 by Haus der Kunst München( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Accompanying the exhibition "Postwar: Art between the Pacific and the Atlantic, 1945 1965," this extensive catalogue presents the work of more than 200 artists from over 50 countries. Uniquely, it understands the term postwar as a truly global condition, focusing on the increasingly interdependent nature of the world as the result of new geopolitical affinities and technological realities. The catalogue illuminates how these epochal social changes manifested worldwide across the practices of painting, sculpture, installation, performance, cinema, and music, through eight thematic sections: Aftermath: Zero Hour and the Atomic Era; Form Matters; New Images of Man; Realisms; Concrete Visions; Cosmopolitan Modernisms; Nations Seeking Form; and Networks, Media, and Communication. Key historical texts, visual essays, color illustrations, and over 35 original contributions by leading international art historians, curators, and scholars offer new insights into the complex legacies of artistic practice and art historical discourses that emerged in the aftermath of World War II s devastation. Artists biographies, a comprehensive bibliography, and chronologies of the postwar period further supplement what will become an indispensable resource for future research."
