Lee Krasner by Robert Carleton Hobbs( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 972 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a complete reappraisal of Lee Krasner (1908-1984), who, along with her husband, Jackson Pollock, was among the artists who launched the New York School of painting after World War II. One of the few critically recognized female Abstract Expressionists of her generation, she has emerged as an essential figure in postwar American art. This lavishly illustrated book, the companion to a major traveling exhibition, takes a fresh look at Krasner and highlights the striking originality and complexity of her work. Krasner saw her art as an open-ended exploration and a dialogue with a wide range of artistic, literary, and cultural voices. Complete with never-before-published excerpts from the diary of writer B.H. Friedman, a longtime associate of Krasner's who provides priceless insights into this pivotal period of American history, this book is essential for any art library. This book and the exhibition it accompanies were developed by Independent Curators International (ICI), a non-profit organization, that creates innovative, provocative traveling exhibitions of contemporary art that have been presented in museums and university galleries worldwide

Milton Avery : the late paintings by Robert Carleton Hobbs( Book )

13 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 627 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
Lee Krasner by Robert Carleton Hobbs( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in 3 languages and held by 625 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."--Jacket

Yinka Shonibare, MBE by Yinka Shonibare( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shonibare employs a wide range of media - sculpture, painting, photography, video, and installation pieces - to explore matters of race, class, cultural identity, and history. The artist is best-known for his use of a Dutch-wax fabric, which, though labeled as "African," actually originated in Dutch Indonesia and was introduced to Africa by British manufacturers via Dutch colonizers in the nineteenth century. Incorporating the fabric into Victorian dresses, covering sculptures of alien figures with it or stretching it onto canvases, Shonibare uses the fabric as a metaphor to address issues of origin and authenticity. Published as a companion to Shonibare's first retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, Australia, and the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York, this survey explores all aspects of Shonibare's work, offering a fully comprehensive portrait of his projects. Whether he is lampooning Victorian propriety or commenting on the latent ambiguities of the term "alien," Shonibare makes art."--Jacket

Beatrice Mandelman, Taos modernist by Robert Carleton Hobbs( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Hobbs calls Beatrice Mandelman one of the most original and important of the Taos abstract painters. An artist since the 1920s, she moved to Taos in the 1940s with her husband, Louis Ribak, and became one of the leaders of the third generation of New Mexico painters."--BOOK JACKET. "In the evolution of her work she has shown the influences of her early teacher Louis Lozowick and friends Willem deKooning, Jackson Pollock, and other New York abstract painters. She also studied with Fernand Leger and Francis Picabia in Paris, but painting in the relative isolation of northern New Mexico allowed her to create an important regional variant of the international modern style. This book is not only a close examination of the life work of a lively and dedicated Taos artist, it is also about how Modernism developed and flourished outside of New York and Paris."--BOOK JACKET
