Alex Katz : a retrospective by Alex Katz ( Book )
4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This retrospective study is the definitive survey. The author, a distinguished art critic, teacher, and historian, has known Katz almost as long as the artist has been painting, and the two worked together to select the paintings, prints, and sculptural cutouts that are reproduced here. Sandler traces the artist's upbringing, his education in art, and his influences among other visual artists, writers, and especially poets

In memory of my feelings; a selection of poems by Frank O'Hara ( Book )
8 editions published between 1967 and 2005 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Frank O'Hara: In Memory of My Feelings explores a key period in modern art, and highlights 30 artists who collaborated with O'Hara to produce poem-paintings--a single work of art paired with a single poem. The artists included Nell Blaine, Norman Bluhm, Joe Brainard, John Button, Giorgio Cavallon, Allan D'Arcangelo, Elaine de Kooning, Willem de Kooning, Niki de Saint Phalle, Helen Frankenthaler, Jane Freilicher, Michael Goldberg, Philip Guston, Grace Hartigan, Al Held, Jasper Johns, Matsumi Kanemitsu, Alex Katz, Lee Krasner, Alfred Leslie, Roy Lichtenstein, Marisol, Joan Mitchell, Robert Motherwell, Robert Nakian, Barnett Newman, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers and Jane Wilson. After being published by MoMA in 1967 as a collection of slipcased sheets, the original art-literature pairings of In Memory of My Feelings were thought to be lost. Last year, the works were rediscovered in the museum's archives, and this bound version was planned to re-present a seminal document of the beauty of collaboration in the arts."--Amazon.com
Tantra song : Tantric painting from Rajasthan by Franck André Jamme ( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection of rare, abstract Tantra drawings was conceived when the French poet Franck André Jamme stumbled on a small catalogue of Tantric art at a Paris bookseller's stall. The volume included writings by Octavio Paz and Henri Michaux, and Jamme became fascinated by the images' affinity with modern art and poetry. He read voraciously and even journeyed to India, searching in vain for Tantric practitioners, until a bus accident on the road to Jaipur sent him home to France with serious injuries. When he returned a few years later, he met a soothsayer who proclaimed that Jamme had now paid sufficient tribute to the goddess Shakti and required him to take a vow: he must visit the tantrikas alone or only in the company of a loved one. Since then, Jamme has gained extraordinary access to very private communities of adepts and their intensely beautiful works. These contemporary, anonymous drawings from Rajasthan are unlike the more familiar strands of Tantric art--the geometric yantras, or erotic illustrations of the Kama Sutra. The progeny of seventeenth-century illustrated religious treatises, these drawings have evolved into a distinct visual lexicon designed to awaken heightened states of consciousness and are imbued with specific spiritual meanings (e.g. spirals and arrows for energy, an inverted triangle for Shakti). A revelatory volume on this occluded genre of Indian art, Tantra Song is a convergence of east and west, the spiritual and the aesthetic, the ancient and the modern
