Matisse : father & son by John Russell ( Book )
15 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The relationship between Post-Impressionist artist Henri Matisse and his son, art dealer Pierre Matisse (1900-1989), is at the heart of this revealing biography. Pierre Matisse moved from France to New York in his 20s to establish a gallery, where he introduced such major European artists as Miró, Giacometti, Balthus, and Dubuffet to the United States. Art critic John Russell has created a seamless narrative based on exclusive access to Pierre Matisse's vast unpublished archives, which hold 30 years of near-daily letters between father and son as well as a vast correspondence with the artists he represented. The result is an insider's look at the lives and creative efforts of some of the 20th century's most important artists

John Russell's memoir of London goes back to before the great fire of 1666, when the modern city was formed.

It offers a privileged peek inside Buckingham Palace as well as a leisurely stroll through John Nash's Regent's Park

Max Ernst : a retrospective by Max Ernst ( Book )
10 editions published between 1960 and 1967 in 4 languages and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: Max Ernst (1891-1976) was a pivotal figure in the history of twentieth-century art. A leader of the Dada movement in Germany, he later joined the circle of writers and artists gathered in Paris around Andre Breton, the unofficial founder of the Surrealist movement. At the outset of World War II, Ernst fled Germany for the United States, first going to New York and eventually settling in Sedona, Arizona. Ernst returned to Europe in 1950 and continued to explore Surrealist imagery and methods throughout his life. This important book accompanies the first retrospective exhibition of Ernst's work held in the United States in thirty years. It examines his pioneering accomplishments in painting, collage, and sculpture and considers his use of the techniques of frottage, grattage, and decalcomania. Also featured are Ernst's unique collage novels-narratives comprising disparate images culled from nineteenth-century engravings and combined in surreal, unsettling compositions. Leading scholars write on various aspects of Ernst's life and art: Werner Spies on Ernst in America; Ludger Derenthal on Ernst and politics; Pepe Karmel on Ernst and contemporary art; Thomas Gaehtgens on Ernst and the old masters; and Robert Storr on the collage novels
