"This book focuses on a central but relatively unexamined aspect of the work of Salvador Dali: his fascination with optical effects and visual perception. The book examines Dali's use of various pictorial techniques, photography, and holograms to further his exploration of visual perception and the ways that optical illusion affects our sense of reality." "This book is the catalogue for an exhibition at the Wardsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, Connecticut; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; and at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh."--Jacket

German expressionist sculpture by Stephanie Barron( Book )

12 editions published between 1983 and 1985 in English and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume presents a survey of German expressionist sculpture. Expressionism was a modernist movement, initially in poetry and painting, originating in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century. Its typical trait is to present the world solely from a subjective perspective, distorting it radically for emotional effect in order to evoke moods or ideas. Expressionist artists sought to express meaning or emotional experience rather than physical reality. The term is sometimes suggestive of emotional angst. The Expressionist emphasis on individual perspective has been characterized as a reaction to positivism and other artistic styles such as naturalism and impressionism. This work contains more than one hundred and twenty examples of German Expressionist sculpture by thirty-three artists. Included are sculptures by artists recognized for their work in this medium -- Ernst Barlach, Wilhelm Lehmbruck, Georg Kolbe, Renee Sintenis, Gerhard Marcks -- as well as sculpture by such figures as Kathe Kollwitz, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Erich Heckel, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Emil Nolde, Max Beckmann, Egon Schiele, and Otto Freundlich, whose reputations are based on their painting and graphic oeuvres. A significant number of works by lesser-known artists, who belonged to the second generation of Expressionism in the twenties among them Herbert Garbe, Conrad Felixmuller, Paul Rudolf Henning, William Wauer, and Christoph Vollare also examined. Included in the catalog are examples of the artists' varied writings as well as evaluations by contemporary critics, scholars, writers, and poets. Seven essays and excerpts from contemporary texts, published in translation for the first time, highlight the German Expressionists' concern with particular materials and their attraction to African and Oceanic art

Jean Dubuffet 1943-1963 : paintings, sculptures, assemblages : an exhibition by Jean Dubuffet( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book also includes several essays on the artist and his work, and numerous quotes from Dubuffet's writings are in the catalogue section. Susan J. Cooke discusses the artist's portraits from 1946 to 1947, noting their continuing ability to startle, disturb, and amuse. Jean Planque reminisces about his long relationship with the artist, describing Dubuffet as a man of extremes - spontaneous, impatient, discreetly generous, with a love of contradiction and an extraordinary capacity for work. Peter Schjeldahl provides a succinct overview of Dubuffet's work and identifies Dubuffet's career as a long explosion that, as the artist said it would, defied the mainstream tradition of Western painting still in touch with the pictorial genres and aesthetic ideals inherited from the Renaissance. In addition to more than ninety full-page color plates of Dubuffet's works, a select bibliography and chronology are included

Ai Weiwei : according to what? = Ai Weiwei by Weiwei Ai( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A leading figure among the Chinese artists of his generation, Ai Weiwei creates art that transcends East/West cultural dualities and focuses on fundamental artistic, cultural, and social questions. Published in conjunction with the first North American survey of this celebrated and provocative artist's career, this volume offers a valuable introduction to the full spectrum of Ai Weiwei's work--from photographs and sculpture to documentation of several of his most well-known projects, including his collaboration with Herzog & de Meuron on the "bird's nest" stadium for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. More recent works, several made specifically for this tour, address his ongoing investigation of the aftermath of the Sichuan earthquake, as well as his responses to his detention and continual surveillance by Chinese authorities. The book contains essays by exhibition curator Mami Kataoka, art historian Charles Merewether, and an interview between the Hirshhorn's chief curator Kerry Brougher and the artist
