Munch by himself by Iris Müller-Westermann( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Best known for his iconic painting The Scream, the celebrated Norwegian painter and printmaker Edvard Munch (18631944) had the greatest impact on Expressionism of any Scandinavian artist. His intense, evocative treatment of psychological and emotional themes exerted a major influence on the art of the entire 20th century. Often biographical, his work offers a fascinating insight into the psyche of an artist. No artist observed and painted himself throughout his life as frequently as Munch, and few have revealed their weaknesses and anxieties as frankly. This handsome volume, which accompanies a major traveling exhibition, contains beautiful reproductions of 150 paintings, drawings, and rarely seen photographic self-portraits of startling originality. The texts set them in the context of the artist's life and career, and also examine how many of Munch's preoccupations remain relevant today

"This ambitious exhibition brings together works by J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851), Claude Monet (1840-1926) and Cy Twombly (1928-2011), three of the most prolific and well-known artists of all time.

The exhibition will also include a major work from Twombly's vibrant and well-received series, Blooming: A Scattering of Blossoms and Other Things, shown in the UK for the first time. Alongside Turner's compelling, atmospheric works and the beautiful and emotive art of Monet, Twombly's original contemporary style adds a fresh and exciting dimension to the exhibition.

Max Ernst : dream and revolution by Max Ernst( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Max Ernst (1891-1976) is one of the most significant and influential artists of the twentieth century. Influenced by two world wars, he repeatedly questioned and adjusted his repertoire of expression throughout his entire career and reflected on the potentials of art with vast inventiveness. His complex pictorial worlds now seem more relevant than ever before: a younger audience will be able to discover links between Max Ernst's fantasy worlds and their own travels to the cyber worlds of modern computer games." "This publication considers Max Ernst's revolutionary life's work from a new perspective. It examines in detail his Dada years in Cologne, his residence in France from 1921 to 1941 and his importance amid the Parisian Surrealists, the decade in American exile, and the period after his return to Europe until his death. Moreover the contributions by Ludger Derenthal, Julia Drost, Benjamin Meyer-Krahmer, Iris Muller-Westermann, Jurgen Pech, Werner Spies, and Tanja Wessolowski focus on central aspects of Max Ernst's manifold oeuvre."--Jacket
Hilma af Klint : a pioneer of abstraction by Hilma af Klint( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hilma af Klint (1862-1944), an artist whose work is still unknown to a wider public, eschewed representational painting as early as 1906. Between 1906 and 1915 she produced nearly two hundred abstract paintings, some of which are in monumental formats. Like Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian, and Kazimir Malevich, who have previously been regarded as the main protagonists of abstract art, Hilma af Klint was influenced by contemporary spiritual movements, such as spiritism, theosophy, and anthroposophy. Her multifaceted imagery strives to provide insight into the different dimensions of existence, where microcosm and macrocosm reflect one another. Hilma af Klint left more than one thousand paintings, watercolors, and sketches. This publication presents her most important abstract works as well as paintings and works on paper that have never before been seen in public, enhancing our understanding of her oeuvre."--The Publisher
Le Corbusier's secret laboratory : from painting to architecture by Jean-Louis Cohen( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, known as Le Corbusier, had an unparalleled influence on the design, function and construction of twentieth-century buildings, both public and residential. In addition, he was an artist and designer--an aspect of his creativity which was somewhat eclipsed by his architectural renown. Le Corbusier had originally intended to be a painter and his early studies were primarily focused on art and decoration. For more than five decades, Le Corbusier oscillated between contradictory poles: his fascination with mechanical objects on the one hand, and his search for poetic form on the other. The intermingling of his more private aesthetic pursuits and his more public works took place in his "secret laboratory," inside his artist's studio. This volume consolidates the diverse facets of his oeuvre, offering a more complete understanding of his paintings, drawings, sculptures, tapestries, furniture, architectural sketches and plans--as well as his books and photographs. In tying together these disparate strands, we gain greater insight into the path of his overall creative evolution. This unified overview is revealing both for scholars of Le Corbusier's work and for all those seeking a better understanding of this exceptionally talented and significant historical figure. The book's five chapters cover a wide spectrum, ranging from the purist paintings and early villas to Le Corbusier's later reinterpretation of his values and his final works. Perhaps the most important visionary of modern architecture, the Swiss-born Le Corbusier (1887-1965) broke new ground in reimagining residences, workplaces and urban environments--aiming to provide an enhanced quality of life for all--especially for the poorer classes. Prolific and an enthusiastic traveler, his work can be found at locations throughout Europe, India and America
Andreas Gursky : Werke 80-08 = works 80-08 : Kunstmuseen Krefeld, Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Vancouver Art Gallery by Andreas Gursky( Book )

Paul McCarthy : head shop, shop head : works 1966-2006 by Paul McCarthy( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Product Description: Although Paul McCarthy was born in 1945, has been working for nearly 40 years and is counted among the most influential figures of his generation, he didn't become known to the general public until the early 1990s. Because of this, and because he has frequently collaborated with younger artists like Mike Kelley and Jason Rhoades, many people think mistakenly that McCarthy belongs to a younger generation. Perhaps this is also because his portfolio includes works like the 1993 Spaghetti Man, a mannequin-like child figure with a penis so long it coils in front of him, who likes to stand around galleries in nothing but a T-shirt and a furry bunny face mask. Works like these--uneasy, funny, wise--undertake a critical processing of Western culture, its traumas and taboos, and the institutions that shape its denizens. Hollywood, Disney and the family are a few of McCarthy's direct sources of inspiration. Head Shop/Shop Head: Works 1966-2006 features seven large installations, 15 large sculptures, two inflatable ones, drawings, photos and film, all of which are featured at the important retrospective mounted by Sweden's Moderna Museet in the summer of 2006

2 editions published in 1996 in Swedish and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Irving Penn is one of our century's most influential and important photographers.

The choice of motifs ranges from the world of fashion to the world ot the nomads of Morocco, from urban elegance to discarded cigarette butts, from naked bodies to dressed up celebrities ... each subject, each human being appears to be detached, like a phenomenon; like a unique timeless moment

Pop art design by Pop Art Design( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the most influential art movement of the postwar era, Pop art continues to shape our visual culture today. A central preoccupation of Pop was its dialogue with design, extensively investigated for the first time in this volume, published in conjunction with Vitra Design Museum's exhibition of the same name. Here, key works of Pop art by Robert Indiana, Jasper Johns, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Niki de Saint Phalle and Andy Warhol are juxtaposed with design objects from the same period by the likes of Charles and Ray Eames, Alexander Girard, Gruppo Strum, George Nelson, Verner Panton, Studio 65 and Ettore Sottsass. These works are buttressed with a wealth of illustrations from everyday culture, interior design and contemporary history, while opulent image spreads are accompanied by comprehensive essays from renowned experts and scholars
Louise Bourgeois : I have been to hell and back by Louise Bourgeois( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dauntless, psychological, feminist -- the substantial oeuvre of Louise Bourgeois. Those who have stood under one of her Mamans, sculptures of spiders that symbolize maternal protection, understand the singularity of Louise Bourgeois's artistic approach. In terms of style, her pioneering body of work is complex, and she uses a wide variety of materials -- drawings, etchings, installations, works made of fabric, sculptures out of wood, marble, bronze, latex, plaster, hemp -- to deal with universal questions. The extensive monograph provides an overview of the overall artistic development of Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) and presents a large number of works, including some that have never before been published. The volume is grouped into themes that characterize her oeuvre, including memory, trauma, relationships, sexuality, fear, as well as the difficulty involved with being an artist and mother at the same time. Personal photographs furthermore document the artist's childhood and family life; several letters and documents are being made accessible for the first time."--Publisher's website

Explosion!( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the years following the Second World War, artists across the world began to attack the most basic premises of painting, in ways that were both aggressive and playful. The creative act itself was deemed as important as the painting that resulted from it, creating an energetic interzone between painting and performance in which chance procedures, the movement of bodies and the participation of spectators were all recruited as tools. "Explosion! Painting as Action" explores the connections and cross fertilizations between painting, performance and conceptual art from the late 1940s to the present. Examining painting, photography, video, performance, dance and sound art, this volume includes works by Lynda Benglis, Niki de Saint Phalle, Cai Guo-Qiang, the Gutai Group, Allan Kaprow, Yves Klein, Alison Knowles, Ana Mendieta, Rivane Neuenschwander, Yoko Ono, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, Carolee Schneemann, Shozo Shimamoto, Lawrence Weiner and many others."--Publisher's website
