Lee Krasner by Robert Carleton Hobbs ( Book )
10 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and held by 1,602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Abstract Expressionist painter Lee Krasner (1908-1984) was the only critically recognized woman artist among the founders of the New York school of painting after World War II. Although her historical importance was understood at an early date, the significance of her work - and her position as an essential figure in postwar American art - has been appreciated only in recent decades." "Unlike her male colleagues, who viewed painting as a primal expression of the self, Krasner saw her art as an open-ended exploration. Her complex and original works were dense with intellectual and cultural suggestion, incorporating human and foliate forms, allusions to myth and ancient script, and deliberate ambiguity." "This lavishly illustrated book, which accompanies a major traveling exhibition of Krasner's paintings, brings new insight to her remarkable achievements. Art historian Robert Hobbs takes a fresh look at her work, examining its forms and iconography to reveal the impressive originality and complexity of her creation. Beginning with Krasner's experiences at art school in the 1930s, and continuing through fifty years of her creative work, Hobbs traces the artist's development as she gradually came to terms with a maturing self. Drawing on a variety of sources, including in-depth interviews with Krasner and her friends, Hobbs reveals Krasner as one of the most remarkable figures in postwar art."--BOOK JACKET

Milton Avery : the late paintings by Robert Carleton Hobbs ( Book )
8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The painter Milton Avery is the among the most beloved of American artists. A cool modernist, he is known chiefly for his vividly colored landscapes and intimate scenes of family life. Long overshadowed by Abstract Expressionism, his art has recently begun to be reassessed and its place in the history of modernism restored." "Robert Hobbs explores the development of Avery's painting in this crucial phase and draws insightful connections between it and Wallace Stevens's innovative poetry, written during the same period. This comparison will intrigue devotees of American poetry and American art." "A 1958 essay on Avery by the renowned critic Clement Greenberg, reprinted here, places the artist in the vanguard of an art that unites abstraction and representation, American ingenuity and an international sensibility. Altogether, this book takes a many-faceted approach to the presentation of an exquisite group of artworks."--Jacket

Earl Cunningham : painting an American Eden by Robert Carleton Hobbs ( Book )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The seductively bright colors, naive frankness, and highly detailed imagery of the paintings of American artist Earl Cunningham (1893-1977) are hard to resist. Whether depicting the Maine coast or Florida's Everglades, harbor scenes with Norse ships or American schooners, or Seminole Indian encampments, Cunningham's work comprises a major contribution to America's artistic heritage. Great attention has recently been focused on folk and outsider art, and among these artists Cunningham is remarkable, both for the length of his career and for his development from a more traditional "American Primitive," as he labeled himself in the 1930s, to a sophisticated vernacular artist in the 1960s and 1970s. In Earl Cunningham: Painting an American Eden author Robert Hobbs gives a vivid picture of the adventurous and controversial life of this self-taught artist. Choosing not to view Cunningham's work as separate from mainstream cultural trends, Hobbs shows how the artist carried on a dialogue with modern art and culture. He traces the intriguing mix of sophistication and naivete present in all of Cunningham's paintings and suggests how he might have drawn on sources such as 19th-century American marine painting, Fauvism, the art of Charles Burchfield or Milton Avery, and even Walt Disney's animated characters. Special attention is given to the artist's series, including his meditations on trains, lighthouses, storms and hurricanes, angel Gabriel weather vanes, and exotic wildlife. Earl Cunningham's intensely colored landscapes are American Edens filled with wonder. In the book's foreword Lynda Roscoe Hartigan provides critical insight into Cunningham's life and artistic odyssey. The 74 brilliant color images are accompanied by more than 25 black-and-white illustrations, which include whimsical drawings by the artist, family snapshots, and several outstanding photographs by the award-winning photographer Jerry Uelsmann, who knew the artist in the 1960s. A large number of Earl Cunningham's paintings and other personal documents survive together today in the collection of Marilyn and Michael Mennello, who have dedicated themselves to the life of this artist. Earl Cunningham: Painting an American Eden accompanies a major traveling exhibition curated by Robert Hobbs and organized by the High Museum of Art in Atlanta

Mark Lombardi : global networks by Robert Carleton Hobbs ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A few weeks after the September 11 terrorist attacks, an FBI agent called the Whitney Museum of American Art and asked to see a drawing on exhibit there. The piece was by Mark Lombardi, an artist who had committed suicide the year before. Using just a pencil and a huge sheet of paper, Lombardi had created an intricate pattern of curves and arcs to illustrate the links between global finance and international terrorism. In other drawings, Lombardi explored subjects ranging from the collapse of the Vatican bank to the Iran-Contra scandal. The results are not only detailed slices of history, but also works of art - some looking like constellations of stars on a dark night, others swirling clouds of abstract lines and points."
