Dalí's optical illusions by Salvador Dalí( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on a central but relatively unexamined aspect of the work of Salvador Dali: his fascination with optical effects and visual perception. The book examines Dali's use of various pictorial techniques, photography, and holograms to further his exploration of visual perception and the ways that optical illusion affects our sense of reality." "This book is the catalogue for an exhibition at the Wardsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, Connecticut; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; and at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh."--Jacket
Paul Klee rediscovered : works from the Bürgi collection by Paul Klee( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Inside Flap: Known for their subtle and vibrant color, their fantastic dream images, their wit, and their playful imagination, the works of painter Paul Klee are among the most famous and recognizable of modern art. In this ground-breaking new volume, an essential group of 150 oils, watercolors, drawings, and prints, representative of Klee's entire career, is released to the public for the first time. These unpublished works are held in the Burgi Collection. Hanni Burgi (1880-1938) and her son Rolf (1906-1967) were intimately bound to Paul Klee and his family, and during the two and a half decades Hanni knew the artist, she built up the second largest collection of his pictures in the world: as early as 1938, it was described as "a very beautiful, full collection of [Klee's] works, which reflects the whole of his development as an artist." Rolf Burgi continued to add to it after his mother's death. It was Rolf, also, who, as the Klees' closest friend and adviser, made possible their escape from Nazi Germany in 1933, and, after Paul Klee's death, administrated his estate, saved it from liquidation, and set up the Paul Klee Foundation. Offering new art-historical insight into Klee's career-from his early Impressionist-inspired works, through his Expressionism with Kandisky and his Bauhaus period between the wars-this book contains the only reproduction of these important but little-known pieces collected by the Burgis, and will become essential to all enthusiasts of the art of Paul Klee and the modern period. The Burgi Collection represents a legacy of enduring loyalty and commitment to Paul Klee and his work that this lavishly illustrated volume handsomely honours

Tracey Emin : 20 years by Tracey Emin( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tracey Emin is one of the most famous artists working in Britain today. Born in London in 1963, she grew up in Margate and experienced a difficult childhood. Her teenage years provided the inspiration for much of her later work, which is autobiographical and often shockingly frank. This book accompanies her first retrospective exhibition in the UK, at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh and covers the full range of her work over the past twenty years, including embroidered blankets, paintings, sculptures, films, neons, and drawings. It features a biographical introduction by Patrick Elliott, Chief Curator at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, and a text by the artist Julian Schnabel."--Jacket

Tony Cragg sculptures and drawings by Patrick Elliott( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in 1949, Tony Cragg is one of today's most celebrated and popular sculptors. Before studying art he worked as a laboratory technician, which has had an enormous influence on his practice. His work fuses art and science in a rich and arresting way, and he works in an astonishing variety of styles and materials, including bronze, glass, plaster, wood, fibreglass, and plastics. In 1988 he won the Turner Prize. This beautiful book, celebrating the work of one of the world's most successful and respected artists, concentrates on works made in the last ten years, but it includes also examples of earlier work, and has been produced in close consultation with Cragg
Surrealism and after : the Gabrielle Keiller collection by Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elizabeth Blackadder by Elizabeth Blackadder( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This extensively illustrated book is devoted to the art of Dame Elizabeth Blackadder, one of Scotland's best-loved painters. Blackadder's art explores a diverse range of subjects through many mediums. The artist draws on experiences of foreign travel, as well as plant forms and animals closer to home, to produce highly original works that appear to breathe with their own life. Her deeply analytical eye allows her to see the underlying structure, design and colour harmony in both the exotic and the everyday. This book tells the fascinating story of her career, from her early days as a student in Edinburgh, and her friendships with Scottish painters William Gillies, William MacTaggart and Anne Redpath, to her very recent work. Exhibition: National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh, July/Jan 2011/12

S.J. Peploe by Samuel John Peploe( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Samuel John Peploe (1871-1935) was the eldest of the four artists popularly known as 'The Scottish Colourists'. Born in Edinburgh, he was drawn to France and returned to paint there frequently, moving in 1910 to Paris, where he moved in artistic avant-garde circles. His painting style gave way to a more contemporary and expressive approach, and he used rich colours applied with more structured brushstrokes. In 1912 Peploe returned to Edinburgh and slowly began to build a successful career as an exhibiting artist. From around 1914 until his death, he sought to paint the perfect still life. A modest selection of props, including roses or tulips, fans, books, fruits and Chinese vases, were carefully placed in infinite varieties on patterned drapery. In 1929 he explained: 'There is so much in mere objects, flowers, leaves, jugs, what not - colours, forms, relation - I can never see mystery coming to an end'
Howard Hodgkin : large paintings, 1984-2002 by Richard Kendall( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Howard Hodgkin is respected internationally as one of the most significant painters - and certainly the greatest colourist - working in Britain today. 'My pictures', he has said, 'are narrative paintings which describe specific moments and very definite people.' These paintings of remembered experiences - the product of years of anxious effort - are layered, sweeping compositions of magnificent colour and vivacious style. The works included here are large-scale paintings from the last two decades; a number have only recently been completed and are illustrated for the first time. The essays that accompany the paintings have been written by the eminent art historians, Robert Rosenblum and Richard Kendall, who have long been admirers of Howard Hodgkin's work."--BOOK JACKET

Richard Long : walking and marking by Richard Long( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Long is one of the most influential artists of our time. His innovative, beautiful and thought-provoking work can be seen in museums all over the world. Born in 1945, Long is a pioneer of Land Art. His art has its origins in walking: his works of the 1960s record the walks, while subsequent works, made in predominantly remote and wilderness landscapes, use simple, natural materials such as stones, sticks and water. Employing the universal forms of lines, circles and spirals, his art speaks of man's relationship with the natural world. This book, designed in collaboration with the artist, focuses primarily on work he has made in the past decade. It includes a selection of photographic and text works, mud and China clay drawings, and works made on driftwood and found objects. It also documents some of his recent, major projects."--BOOK JACKET
The unpainted landscape by Simon Cutts( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

« When we think of the landscape and of an art derived from it, we may bring to mind first of all the activity of drawing and painting. The image is redolent, of a solitary wind-blown figure in front of an easel. It is almost as inherent a cliché as the garret or attic for the isolate artist in an urban parallel. With the selection presented here, we hope to show the work of some artists who, whilst working with the landscape, do so in another way. They do not try to reproduce the appearance of the landscape by way of painted effects. The intrinsic correspondance between the devices of painting and the imposing scene in front of us, as in the traditions and effects of watourcolour, has been central to our experience of art. Nonetheless, in the period of the last twenty years, some artists have established new procedures for an art of landscape, and have chosen to work with wider means at their disposal. They have used the recording photograph, the idea of time and sequence to make a journey, the notion of change and substitution in a place. In fact they have re-examined the composition of an art related to landscape. »--
