Matisse : father & son by John Russell( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 872 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 Art critic John Russell has created a seamless narrative based on exclusive access to Pierre Matisse's vast unpublished archives, which hold 30 years of near-daily letters between father and son as well as a vast correspondence with the artists he represented.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

This volume presents the conversations he had with Francis Cremieux, in which he discusses his life, beliefs, practices, friendships with the great artists and writers of his day, all providing a sense of the fertile intellectual ground in which Cubism developed. Originally published as Mes Galeries et mes peintres by Editions Gallimard, Paris, in 1961. Includes an extensive additional interview conducted shortly before Kahnweiler's death.

In the garden by Jennifer Bartlett( Book )

6 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jennifer Bartlett: In the Garden takes a focused look at the work she produced between 1980 and 1983, a series now referred to as her In the Garden pieces. The genesis of In the Garden was Bartlett’s year spent at a friend’s villa in Nice, France. Initially disappointed with the grey weather and the run-down house, she channeled her energy into working with what she had—a small backyard with a pool, a dense line of cypresses, and a small sculpture of a boy urinating into the water. The ultimate result was a group of almost 200 drawings of the same scene, in a dizzying range of styles and executed in ten mediums, from pointillism in colored pencil to impressionistic pastels and Matisse-like gouaches."
