Mies and modern living : interiors, furniture, photography by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) is not only one of the most important architects of the twentieth century, his furniture designs are also considered milestones in the history of design. Even today, his tubular and flat-bar steel furniture, such as the famous Barcelona Chan, are to a large extent still in serial production. Based on the most recent scholarship and taking new material into consideration, this publication devotes itself to these modern classics and in doing so, discusses the progressive concepts of interior space developed by Mies van der Rohe, who invariably understood the interior-design aspect as part of an overall architectural plan. Well-informed experts not only look back on the artistic highlights of Mies's career and their developmental history, their contributions also bring to life the atmosphere that prevailed in Berlin in the twenties and thirties. In addition, this book contains a series of previously unpublished photographs of Mies's work."--Jacket

Michaël Borremans : eating the beard by Michaël Borremans( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The paintings, drawings and films of Belgian artist Michaël Borremans (born 1963) seem to suspend humans above the logic of their actions, so that the simplest gesture or movement is emptied of sense and made arbitrary, tense and uneasily beautiful. Sometimes Borremans makes a garment the hero of the work, as in his well-known painting of a young woman with a bow: eye-catching as the subject's introspective facial expression undoubtedly is, the almost Pop-ish boldness of her bright white bow throws the whole composition into a bizarre tension between moody inwardness and mischievous extroversion rarely seen in contemporary art. The title of this first comprehensive overview hints at the submerged streak of wicked Belgian wit throughout Borremans' oeuvre, and presents the most coherent portrait of the artist to date. It assembles more than 100 works made over the past ten years, showing how motifs and allusions migrate across media, unifying the oeuvre into a singular investigation of atmospherics, humor and the unexpected communicative possibilities of a restrained palette of beiges, browns and greys. The particular advantage this overview offers is precisely in the presentation of such cross-media unity, also revealing how much each medium verges upon becoming the other (the cinematic qualities of the paintings, the painterliness of the films). With more than 120 color plates, Eating the Beard is the essential Borremans monograph."--Publisher's description
