Modigliani & the artists of Montparnasse by Kenneth Wayne( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Famous for his elongated forms, graceful portraits, and lush nudes, Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) is among the most loved of the extraordinary group of artists who lived in Montparnasse in the early twentieth century. Accompanying the first major Modigliani exhibition - culled from important collections in North America and abroad - in the United States in more than forty years, this book places Modigliani and his work in the context of his friends and contemporaries, all living and working in what Marcel Duchamp described as "the first truly international group of artists we ever had." The art is striking for its diversity: Cubist, Expressionist, and Primitivist, with Modigliani's art embodying all of these elements, in all mediums: painting, sculpture, and works on paper. The other Montparnasse artists featured include Alexander Archipenko, Constantin Brancusi, Giorgio de Chirico, Robert and Sonia Delaunay, Fernand Leger, Pablo Picasso, and Diego Rivera." "Moving beyond the artist's tragically brief life to provide a fuller and richer understanding of his art, this book is arranged thematically: the first essay explores Modigliani's relation with Montparnasse; the second addresses his relationship with the avant-garde movements and figures; and the third examines his lifetime exhibitions and their critical reception. These essays are illustrated not only with the works of Modigliani and his peers, but also with black-and-white photographs of Montparnasse and of the artists." "Also, presented here for the first time are excerpts from "Minnie Pinnikin," the Surrealist novella written by Modigliani's lover and model Beatrice Hastings about their experiences together. Hastings read excerpts from the novella at a literary event in Paris in 1916 and since then it has been considered lost. This striking volume, which includes extensive new documentation, provides a serious examination of Modigliani's work."--Jacket

Abstraction, geometry, painting : selected geometric abstract painting in America since 1945( Book )

11 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first book to fully explore the diverse perspectives that have formed one of the most significant developments in postwar American art-geometric abstract painting. Heavily influenced by the radical geometry of Piet Mondrian, the American Abstract Artists group of the 1930s and 1940s, and the geometric side of Abstract Expressionism, geometric abstraction has had a profound and controversial effect since it first came to American in the mid-1940s. Reproduced here are 81 illustrations, including 55 in full colour, by 25 of the most important artists to work in America. Michael Auping's essay traces the evolution of the movement and places it in relation to a larger twentieth-century tradition. Iluminating statements by the artists accompany reproductions, and a comprehensive bibliography for each artist, including a list of one-person and group exhibitions, rounds out the volume.

Michael Auping's valuable text provides an introduction to the life and art of Arshile Gorky as well as an insightful consideration of the grand psychological landscape The Liver is the Cock's Comb, 1944, a work pivotal to the development of Gorky's style. Dore Ashton writes a lucid account of this artist who tends to resist classification, contributing an art historical overview of Gorky's appreciation of such modern innovators of abstraction and Surrealism as Miro and Kandinsky. Matthew Spender provides biographical details of Gorky's early years, while a selection of Gorky's personal letters further sheds an intimate light on the artist and his achievements

James Tissot : Victorian life, modern love by Nancy Rose Marshall( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Tissot (1836-1902), the wry and urbane observer of manners and fashions, painted scenes from the life of "society" that simmer with undercurrents of sexual drama. This book presents nearly a hundred paintings, prints, and watercolors from every phase of Tissot's career, including such signature paintings as The Ball on Shipboard, Hush! (The Concert), and London Visitors." "Nancy Rose Marshall and Malcolm Warner explore Tissot's themes and interests and consider the influence on his work of Charles Baudelaite's brilliant essay on the aesthetics of modernity, Le Peintre de la vie moderne. They examine how Tissot dealt with the ways of modern love in Paris and London in the later nineteenth century."--Jacket
