Cezanne and the dawn of modern art by Paul Cézanne( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in German and English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cezanne and the Dawn of Modern Art presents selected paintings by Paul Cezanne alongside works by younger artists that reveal the powerful influence of the founder of modern painting. The driving forces in the reception of Cezanne's art were not art critics or art historians, but rather other artists: primarily the Fauves - led by Matisse, de Vlaminck, and Derain - and the Cubists - including Picasso, Braque, and Leger - all of whom absorbed and elaborated on Cezanne's revolutionary ideas about color and composition." "Against this background of Cezannisme, the book presents key works by Cezanne and younger artists in revealing juxtapositions. Readers will discover analogies and variations between the works of the "father of modern art" and those of his successors in series of related motifs - portraits, still lifes, and landscapes - a compact history of the icons of modern art."--Jacket
Street & studio : an urban history of photography by Ute Eskildsen( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in German and English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The photographic portrait has two parallel histories that run side by side, from the birth of photography to the twenty-first century; one of portraits made in the studio, the other of those taken in the street. The advent of small, easily concealed cameos allowed photographers to capture subjects in the street unaware. In contrast, the studio offered the opportunity to present carefully composed images to the world, making use of the elaborate staging and technical devices at the photographer's disposal." "With celebrities today expected to pose for the paparazzi in the street, and the studio being used increasingly for informal and intimate shots, these traditions have been subverted. Accompanying a major exhibition at Tate Modern, Street & Studio explores the fascinating contrasts, tensions and connections between these two traditions."--Jacket
Hold still, keep going by Robert Frank( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Frank not only ranks among the most important of living photographers but is also widely recognized as a seminal figure in the development of experimental cinema. And yet, the continuity and consistency of his work in both photography and film has been barely explored. "Hold still-keep going" fills this obvious void by illustrating and analyzing the underlying aesthetics that have guided Frank's work in both media. From the very outset of his career, Frank distrusted the single photographic image and its claim to freeze moments of truth: time and again he gravitated to the moving image and serial photography, be it in book form or as a panel of photographs. Reproducing more than 100 collages, film stills and serial works, this volume will certainly become a new standard publication on Robert Frank, innovative photographer and experimental filmmaker. The book also contains an illustrated bibliography and biography featuring dozens of previously unpublished images of Robert Frank, his family and his friends. Published in conjunction with a major traveling exhibition, this is an essential addition to all photography and film collections."--Jacket

Monet, Gauguin, Van Gogh ... : Japanese inspirations by Claire Guitton( Book )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and German and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die japanische Kunst ist für die Entwicklung der europäischen Moderne von grundlegender Bedeutung. Nahezu alle großen Meister von Manet, Degas, Cézanne, Monet bis Gauguin, van Gogh, Bonnard und Vuillard haben sich von japanischen Bildmotiven und Stilmitteln begeistern und inspirieren lassen. Ihre Faszination zeigt sich in vielerlei Hinsicht: Sie stellen aus Japan importierte Kunst und Gebrauchsgegenstände in ihren Werken dar, übernehmen japanische Bildsujets für die Darstellung ihrer eigenen Umwelt, und – weit folgenreicher – sie verinnerlichen die Bildsprache des japanischen Holzschnitts. Gerade diese Verinnerlichung führte die Künstler in Verbindung mit der eigenen Bildtradition und den Erfahrungen ihrer Zeit zu einem motivierenden und schöpferischen Prozess, aus dem sie vielfältigste Ausdrucksformen entwickelten, die weit ins 20. Jahrhundert hinein nachwirkten.00Das Museum Folkwang, das eine früh angelegte Sammlung japanischer Kunstobjekte besitzt, widmet diesem faszinierenden Kapitel der Kunst des ausgehenden 19. Jahrhunderts nun eine umfassende Ausstellung. Der Fokus0liegt auf dem Zeitraum von 1860 bis 1910, der Anfangs und Hochphase der Rezeption japanischer Kunst in Frankreich – dem sogenannten „Japonisme“. Die Ausstellung präsentiert Hauptwerke der wichtigsten Künstler jener Zeit0aus internationalen Museen und Privatsammlungen im Dialog mit Farbholzschnitten und Kunstgegenständen japanischer Meister. 00Exhibition: Museum Folkwang, Essen, Germany (27.09.2014-18.01.2015)

Paul Graham : photographs 1981-2006 by Paul Graham( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and German and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A pioneer in the reinvention of contemporary photography as art photography, Paul Graham was one of the first photographers to bring the possibilities of color to the genre of social documentary as we now understand it. His work in the early 1980s prompted photographers like Martin Parr to switch to color, and a new style of photography soon evolved in the works of Richard Billingham, Tom Wood, Simon Norfolk, Jem Southam and many others. Since then, Graham has continued to push the envelope, demonstrating a commitment to expanding photography's artistic space, and to the unity of documentary and artistic considerations in an unblinking engagement with life as it unfolds. Today, he ranks alongside figures like Nan Goldin, Andreas Gursky, Philip-Lorca diCorcia and Rineke Djikstra as a precursor and an eminence. Graham's most recent volume, A Shimmer of Possibility (published in 2007 and already a collector's item - and available below in a new paperback edition), was hailed by critics as a paradigm shifter at a time when art photography is increasingly staged or seems to hold the world at arm's length. This volume, which coincides with a touring European retrospective, appraises 25 years of Graham's work, from 1981 to 2006, tracking his steady expansion of our notions of what photography can say, be or look like."--Jacket
Conflict, time, photography by Tate Britain (Gallery)( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the seconds after a bomb is detonated to a former scene of battle years after a war has ended, this moving exhibition focuses on the passing of time, tracing a diverse and poignant journey through over 150 years of conflict around the world, since the invention of photography. In an innovative move, the works are ordered according to how long after the event they were created from moments, days and weeks to decades later. Photographs taken seven months after the fire bombing of Dresden are shown alongside those taken seven months after the end of the First Gulf War. Images made in Vietnam 25 years after the fall of Saigon are shown alongside those made in Nagasaki 25 years after the atomic bomb. The result is the chance to make never-before-made connections while viewing the legacy of war as artists and photographers have captured it in retrospect. The immediate trauma of war can be seen in the eyes of Don McCullin's Shell-shocked US Marine 1968, while the destruction of buildings and landscapes are documented by Simon Norfolk's Afghanistan: Chronotopia 2001. Different conflicts will also reappear from multiple points in time throughout the exhibition. The Second World War for example is addressed in Jerzy Lewczyński's 1960 photographs of the Wolf's Lair / Adolf Hitler's War Headquarters, Shomei Tomatsu's images of objects found in Nagasaki, Kikuji Kawada's epic project The Map made in Hiroshima in the 1960s, Michael Schmidt's Berlin streetscapes from 1980 and Nick Waplington's 1993 close-ups of cell walls from a Prisoner of War camp in Wales. The exhibition is staged to coincide with the 2014 centenary and concludes with new and recent projects by British, German, Polish and Syrian photographers which reflect on the First World War a century after it began.--Tate website
