David Hockney : portraits by Marco Livingstone( Book )

98 editions published between 1981 and 2006 in 6 languages and held by 3,344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Hockney (b. 1937) is one of the most significant artists exploring and pushing the boundaries of figurative art today. Hockney has been engaged with portraiture since his teenage years, when he painted Portrait of my Father (1955), and his self-portraits and depictions of family, lovers, and friends represent an intimate visual diary of the artist's life." "This illustrated book examines Hockney's portraits in all media - painting, drawing, photographs, and prints - and has been produced in close collaboration with the artist. Featured subjects include members of Hockney's family and private circle, as well as portraits of such artists and cultural figures as Lucian Freud, Francesco Clemente, R.B. Kitaj, Helmut Newton, Lawrence Weschler, and W.H. Auden. The authors reveal how Hockney's creative development and concerns about representation can be traced through his portrait work: from his battle with naturalism to his experimentation with and later rejection of photography, and from his recent camera lucida drawings to his return to painting from life in oil." "Featuring more than 250 works from the past fifty years, David Hockney Portraits illustrates not only the fascinating range of Hockney's creative practice but also the unique and cyclical nature of his artistic concerns."--Jacket

Kitaj by Marco Livingstone( Book )

33 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and German and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"R. B. Kitaj is recognized as a modern master whose powerful, controversial and highly personal paintings, pastels and drawings reflect his unfashionable commitment to the human figure as a subject, and his complex involvement with the art of the past, with political and social issues, and with his own Jewish identity." "Marco Livingstone's monograph on Kitaj is based on a series of interviews and letters between the artist and the author, and provides full and up-to-date documentation of Kitaj's life and work. The artist himself has participated actively in the design of the book, and has written for it a series of articulate and revealing 'prefaces' to his own paintings." "For this expanded third edition, the author has written a new chapter surveying Kitaj's work in the 1990s, a tragic period dominated by his now famous confrontation with the critics of his 1994 retrospective exhibition, the subsequent death of his wife the artist Sandra Fisher, and his eventual return to the United States. This text is complemented by a new plate section illustrating 22 recent works, and three additional 'prefaces' written by the artist."--Jacket
Jim Dine flowers and plants by Marco Livingstone( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jim Dine, renowned for his wit and creativity as a Pop and Happenings artist, has a restless, searching intellect that leads him to challenge himself constantly. In the 1970s he began to focus on flowers and plants, sometimes from his own garden. Always a superb draftsman, Dine revealed a hitherto untapped precision and depth of expression in his botanical drawings and paintings, which are collected here for the first time. Many of these works have never before been published; the impetus for them came from this projected book. In this extraordinary and intense series, he extends traditional botanical illustration and flower painting to encompass a new subjectivity, deriving from artistic and personal sources. Familiar garden and house plants yield unsuspected qualities in Dine's work. Gardeners as well as art lovers will find his wide knowledge of plants and flowers delightful and rewarding
The essential Duane Michals by Duane Michals( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since taking his first pictures four decades ago, Duane Michals has established himself as an artist who has reinvented the medium of photography from an instrument for recording the visible world to an agent of thought and emotion. Michals has made use of all the tricks of the camera and darkroom--including double-exposure, blurred movement and photomontage--in order to construct images that provide his visions with the veracity of a witnessed event. From the 1960s he began to supplement photographs with texts and to create narrative sequences of images. Highly influential among photographers, these innovations have led to other inventive strategies: texts without photographs, or photographs paired with drawings or obscured in paint. But formal and technical considerations have never become an end in themselves; rather they have served Michals's need to communicate themes of growing subtlety and to express his ideas on such matters as the spirit, mortality, desire, human relationships, politics, time and memory. The works brought together in this book--whether commissioned or made for himself, and whether previously unpublished or already familiar to his admirers--demonstrate the rare ability of an artist to be freed of all restraints and preconceptions while remaining always true to himself."--Book jacket

Author Marco Livingstone, who has curated two Dine retrospectives and written about his art on numerous occasions, has documented and analyzed the evolution of both the man and his work.

Livingstone then turns to a discussion of themes and practices that illuminate the art in unexpected ways
