William Eggleston : democratic camera, photographs and video, 1961-2008 by Elisabeth Sussman( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elvis's Graceland, a freezer stuffed with food, a Gulf gasoline sign standing in a deserted rural landscape, these are only a few of the iconic images captured by the "democratic camera" of photographer William Eggleston. Not only has he drawn upon images so telling of American culture, he has produced them with an intensity and balance of color that have helped elevate the entire field of color photography to a fine art, especially since his 1976 exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. Drawing together Eggleston̕s famous and lesser known works, this lavishly illustrated catalogue is the first to examine both his photography and videos. Of particular relevance are his black and white images from the late 1950s and 1960s, which helped shape his color photography, as well as the relationship between his provocative video recordings of 1970s Memphis nightlife and his later work. Included are reproductions of newly restored prints, executed specifically for the exhibition. Filled with new and challenging contributions to scholarship and accompanying the first major U.S. survey of his work, this catalogue will prove the standard reference for Eggleston's photographs for years to come

Ellsworth Kelly : a retrospective by Ellsworth Kelly( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive monograph - published on the occasion of the first complete retrospective of Kelly's work since 1973, organized at the Guggenheim Museum by Diane Waldman, the museum's Deputy Director and Senior Curator - is a definitive investigation of Kelly's career, from his earliest works to the present. Waldman, author of numerous monographs on Modern and contemporary art, has brought together more than 399 of Kelly's most important paintings, sculptures, and works on paper (including several that have never been published): early abstract paintings and reliefs; figurative drawings; collages; photographs; paintings featuring a synthesis of biomorphic and geometric form; single-panel and multipanel paintings; shaped panels; and many of his sculptures, including the first two (from 1959) through the most recent (from 1996). her essay - an overview of Kelly's entire career - and four additional essays on various aspects of his oeuvre by Roberta Bernstein, Carter Ratcliff, Mark Rosenthal, and Clare Bell (plus a Chronology, Exhibition History, and Bibliography) explain the important relationships among his works in various mediums, and reveal why and how Kelly has produced some of the most distinctive art of our time
Lovis Corinth by Lovis Corinth( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in German and English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lovis Corinth was one of the most exciting artists to emerge from turn-of-the-century Germany. Together with Max Beckmann and Oskar Kokoschka, he became one of the greatest figurative painters of the early twentieth century. An outsider of astonishing individuality, he has resisted categorization by art historians in terms of Impressionism, Expressionism, and other movements." "Corinth began his career in the realist tradition in the 1880's, but he was soon at the vanguard of change. Following a period in Munich when his religious and mythological paintings brought him his first taste of fame, Corinth moved to Berlin in 1901, where he spearheaded the protest against Kaiser Wilhelm II's official policy on art." "Towards the latter part of his career, Corinth's work clearly reflects his reactions to his own illness and to World War I. Objects are caught up in a play of broad, energetic brush strokes, the paste-like layers of paint applied in sweeping, parallel movements to produce the characteristic hatching that became his hallmark. These later works - mainly landscapes, portraits and self-portraits - continued to be an inspiration to representatives of later movements." "Lovis Corinth provides a comprehensive analysis of the artist still little known outside Europe. The Munich and Berlin years, his sources and inspiration, his subject matter, his painting and drawing are examined by authors from America, Britain, and Germany. The book is beautifully illustrated with numerous colour reproductions of his oil paintings, watercolours, drawings, and graphic works, providing the definitive illustrated reference on the artist."--Jacket

Ed Ruscha : fifty years of painting by Edward Ruscha( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Regarding beauty : a view of the late twentieth century by Neal David Benezra( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lavishly illustrated Regarding Beauty surveys late twentieth-century Western art to address why the timeless notion of beauty has recently been so hotly contested and, in the 1980s and 1990s in particular, so highly politicized. Are there accepted standards of beauty, or does beauty exist solely in the mind? Is beauty eternal, or a fleeting experience subject to changing fashion and tastes? Can one find beauty in ugliness? Hirshhorn Museum curators Neal Benezra and Olga M. Viso, analytical philosopher Arthur C. Danto, and Haus der Kunst curator Hubertus Gassner contribute essays regarding these questions in this volume, which accompanies an exhibition of approximately eighty paintings, sculptures, and installations by thirty-four artists. Emphasizing parallel approaches rather than trends or movements, illustrations juxtapose works by well-known Europeans and Americans of the past with the creations of a broad and diverse group of international contemporary artists to dramatize the fertile field of beauty as it relates to the figure, landscape, and abstraction. Regarding Beauty argues that beauty has not disappeared from the dialog of art and that, on the contrary, it has persisted as an essential element in the evolution of art as the 20th century passes into history

Typologies by Bernd Becher( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bernd and Hilla Becher's photography can be considered conceptual art, typological study, and topological documentation. Their work can be linked to the Neue Sachlichkeit movement of the 1920s and to such masters of German photography as Karl Blossfeldt, August Sander, and Albert Renger-Patzsch. Their photographs of industrial structures, taken over the course of forty years, are the most important body of work in independent objective photography. A keynote of their contributions to "industrial archaeology" has been their creation of typologies of different types of buildings; this book, which accompanies a major retrospective exhibition, collects all known Becher studies of industrial building types and presents them as a visual encyclopedia." "Each chapter is devoted to a different structure - water towers, coal bunkers, winding towers, breakers (ore, coal, and stone), lime kilns, grain elevators, blast furnaces, steel mills, and factory facades. These are organized according to typologies, most of which are presented as tableaux or suites of about twelve images each. The book contains more than 1,500 individual images. The accompanying text by Armin Zweite is an essential art historical consideration of the Bechers' work. This ultimate Becher book stands as a capstone to the Bechers' unique body of work."--Jacket

Richard Lindner : paintings and watercolors, 1948-1977 by Judith Zilczer( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Lindner (1901-1978), a German-born refugee from Nazi oppression who settled in New York, created a bold and deeply disturbing body of work completely at odds with that city's vanguard of the 195Os. A former commercial artist, Lindner drew on personal memory and his emigre cultural heritage to fashion images of a bizarre and lurid humanity. Grotesque children, automaton couples, and denizens of the urban underworld populate his canvases. While his bold, precision-tooled figurative paintings found an appreciative audience in the 196Os with the advent of Pop Art, Lindner nonetheless remained a resolutely independent artist whose paintings speak to the alienation and moral crises of this century and evoke the absurdity of the human condition." "Richard Lindner: Paintings and Watercolors, 1948-1977 includes 73 oil paintings and watercolors in full color, some of which have never before been exhibited or published. The book is based on the first exhibition of Lindner's work in a generation, organized by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, which reexamines Lindner's life and traces the unfolding thematic content of his art from the late 194Os until his death in 1978. Essays are by organizing curator Judith Zilczer, Curator of Paintings at the Hirshhorn Museum, and Peter Selz, Professor Emeritus of the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Zilczer explores the biographical and cultural sources for Lindner's figurative symbolism, while Professor Selz analyzes Lindner's controversial images of women."--BOOK JACKET
Adrian Piper : a synthesis of intuitions, 1965-2016 by Christophe Cherix( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adrian Piper has consistently produced groundbreaking work that has profoundly shaped the form and content of conceptual art since the 1960s. Strongly inflected by her longstanding involvement with philosophy and yoga, her pioneering investigations into the political, social, psychological and spiritual potential of conceptual art have had an incalculable influence on artists working today. Published in conjunction with the most comprehensive exhibition of her work to date, this catalog presents more than 280 artworks that encompass the full range of Piper's mediums: works on paper, video, multimedia installation, performance, painting, sound and photo-texts. Essays by curators and scholars examine her extensive research into altered states of consciousness; the introduction of the Mythic Being - her subversive masculine alter-ego; her media and installation works from after 1980, which reveal and challenge stereotypes of race and gender; and the global conditions that illuminate the significance of her art. Previously unpublished texts by the artist lay out significant events in her personal history and her deeply felt ideas about the relationship between viewer and art object. This publication expands our understanding of the conceptual and post-conceptual art movements and Piper's pivotal position among her peers and for later generations
Louise Bourgeois : structures of existence: the Cells by Louise Bourgeois( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on a signature phase of Louise Bourgeois's oeuvre, this volume includes in-depth examinations of a selection of the sculptor's Cells series while also studying the innovative series in its entirety. Like the majority of Bourgeois's pieces, her series of Cells are at once enigmatic and extremely personal. Constructed during the last two decades of the artist's life, these complex and sophisticated works are daring and provocative. Many are small enclosures into which the viewer is prompted to peer inward at arrangements of symbolic objects; others are small rooms into which the viewer is invited to enter. In her Cells, Bourgeois uses sculptural forms that she made, found objects, and personal items that held significant meaning for her. Six Cells from throughout the series are given close scrutiny, revealing the enormous diversity of Bourgeois's vision as well as recurring themes of physical and emotional pain, voyeurism, integration, and disintegration. A section of color reproductions includes images and details of the entire series. Together with extensive essays on the Cells' evolution and an interview with the artist's assistant, Jerry Gorovoy, this volume offers a holistic appreciation of a crucial phase in Bourgeois's highly influential career" --
Turning back : a photographic journal of re-exploration by Robert Adams( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in 3 languages and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two hundred years ago Lewis and Clark reported finding in the American Northwest a vast forest of ancient evergreens. In Turning Back Robert Adams looks again at the region's trees, discovering evidence both of America's failure and of a continuing promise." "President Jefferson's primary charge to Lewis and Clark was to prepare the way for American commerce. They tried to do this, as well as make money for themselves. Historians still speculate about why, upon his return, Lewis lapsed into depression and apparently committed suicide. "Going east," Adams suggests, "was more difficult than going west."" "What is the future? Turning Back documents two kinds of predictive evidence. On the one hand we observe the results of greed so unrestrained that they are indistinguishable from those of nihilism. On the other we see what still lives unharmed, whether by our design or neglect or Providence; in these pictures the tone is celebratory, as in a prayer book."--Jacket
