David Hockney : portraits by David Hockney ( Book )
14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 892 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."--BOOK JACKET
Redgrooms by Arthur C Danto ( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Kitaj by Marco Livingstone ( Book )
27 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 675 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."--BOOK JACKET
Jim Dine flowers and plants by Marco Livingstone ( Book )
4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Unusual techniques underlie the uniqueness of much of Dine's botanical work. On several ceramic jars created to his specifications, Dine has drawn towering foxgloves or a clump of crocuses or a strong old trunk with a tangled network of branches - giving these plants an unexpected context that provokes new thinking. His eagerness to get down his ideas leads Dine to press any blank surface into use: two handsome wooden panels, purchased to become doors, now provide the backgrounds for an imposing thicket of weeds and a glorious bunch of gladiolas
David Hockney by Marco Livingstone ( Book )
10 editions published in 1996 in 3 languages and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The relationship between art and life has been of overriding importance in the work of David Hockney, who has perhaps enjoyed greater popularity than any other British artist this century. Here Marco Livingstone traces those connections from the beginning of the artist's career in the early 1960s through to the more recent works that have contributed to Hockney's international reputation. These include his photocollages and highly acclaimed stage designs for the opera, not to mention his embrace of technology - namely the fax drawings and color laser prints - which show the continuing preoccupation with invention and artifice that has made the artist's work at once popular and enduring
The essential Duane Michals by Duane Michals ( Book )
12 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 556 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."--Jacket
Jim Dine : the alchemy of images by Marco Livingstone ( Book )
5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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. The book opens with a brief overview, from the experimental works of the late 1950s to the mature period inaugurated by Dine's return to life drawing in the mid-1970s, a development characterized by a consistent search for and development of an individual, highly personal voice. Livingstone then turns to a discussion of themes and practices that illuminate the art in unexpected ways

Allen Jones : prints by Allen Jones ( Book )
10 editions published in 1995 in English and German and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Prints form an integral part of Allen Jones's creative processes and are as important to him as painting and sculpture. It is therefore scarcely surprising that, ever since his student days, he has produced a steady stream of graphic works, mainly lithographs, but also screenprints and some etchings. Centring on the human figure, Jones's images exude a guilt-free eroticism and an unrestrained joie de vivre rare in British art. Sometimes misinterpreted as sexist, this imagery, like that of Derek Boshier, David Hockney, R.B. Kitaj and Peter Phillips, Jones's contemporaries at the Royal College of Art, London, in the early 1960s, is both a eulogy and a critique of consumerism
