Come as you are : art of the 1990s( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Come as You Are: Art of the 1990s is the largest and most ambitious contemporary art exhibition ever to be mounted by the Montclair Art Museum. The exhibition and book spotlight a pivotal moment in the recent history of art. Chronicling the "long" 1990s between 1989 and 2001-from the fall of the Berlin Wall to 9/11-"Come As You Are" examines how the art of this period both reflected and helped shape the dramatic societal events of the era, when the combined forces of new technologies and globalization gave rise to the accelerated international art world that we know today"--
Conversion to modernism : the early work of Man Ray by Francis M Naumann( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Conversion to Modernism highlights Man Ray's production from 1907 to 1917. This book is the first comprehensive, fully illustrated work to examine this artist's seminal years, beginning with his high school years in Brooklyn, his studies at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design in New York, and the time he spent in life drawing classes at the more progressive Ferrer Center."--Jacket
Paris 1900 : the "American school" at the Universal Exposition by Diane Pietrucha Fischer( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In essays by Diane P. Fischer, Linda J. Docherty, Robert W. Rydell, Gabriel P. Weisberg, and Gail Stavitsky, Paris 1900 examines the campaign sponsored by the U.S. Department of State proving the existence of a distinct "American school" of art and refuting earlier French criticism that American art was primarily a reflection of French art. At this exposition, the McKinley administration's crusade emphasized paintings that exuded "American character," such as images of virile men, wholesome women, pristine landscapes, and technologically superior cities. Paintings by still-powerful American expatriates were also included: Exhibiting only native themes would have smacked of a provincialism inconsistent with the new outward-looking agenda of American foreign policy." "Featuring more than 140 color and black-and-white illustrations, Paris 1900 is the companion volume to a major exhibition of over 80 paintings, sculptures, and decorative art objects at The Montclair Art Museum, which will travel later to museums in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Columbus, Ohio; Madison, Wisconsin; and Paris, France."--Jacket

Anxious objects : Willie Cole's favorite brands by Patterson Sims( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication accompanies the first survey of Willie Cole's work from the late 1980s to the present. Cole was born and raised in New Jersey and has resided in the state his entire life. The exhibition and catalogue focus on Cole's mixed media sculptural works made from salvaged irons, blow dryers, ironing boards, high-heeled shoes, lawn jockeys, and bicycle parts; paintings and drawings made of iron scorch marks, and prints. Cole's consumer and domestic objects assume the appearance of objects from another time, culture, or place, transformed into powerful cultural and spiritual evocations referencing African and global culture. His art is solidly based in studious appreciation rather than humorous imitation or ironic appropriation." "The exhibition was organized by Patterson Sims. In this catalogue, Sims offers a broad introduction to Cole and detailed descriptions of the works included in the show. The text traces Cole's thinking, process, and evolution and the influence of his life-long residency in New Jersey. This catalogue also includes an insightful interview between the artist and Leslie King-Hammond, Dean of Graduate Studies, Maryland Institute College of Art; a short essay by Lowery Stokes Sims, President of the Studio Museum in Harlem, related to Cole's pivotal 1988-89 artist residency there; and an extensive chronology and professional history of the artist."--BOOK JACKET

Will Barnet : a timeless world by Gail Stavitsky( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Painter and printmaker Will Barnet has actively participated in the New York art world for nearly 70 years. A leading figure in the Indian Space painting movement of the late 1940s, Barnet stressed the spatial structures of Northwest Coast Indian art. Throughout the 1950s and into the 1960s, he made a series of hardedged, totemic abstractions marked by their "all-positive" space, which he described as austere, classical expressions of Indian culture. He then moved on to new art forms in the 1960s and 1970s, creating a series of family and art world portraits that achieved a remarkable balance between the formal demands of abstraction and the humanist aspects of representation. Will Barnet: A Timeless World is the first substantial publications to unify Barnet's prodigious output. Art historian Gail Stavitsky provides an overview of this artist's entire career. Twig Johnson, the museum's curator of Native American Art, discusses the relationship of Barnet's work to this important indigenous artistic tradition. Jessica Nicoll, chief curator at the Portland Museum of Art, explores the profound impact of New England upon Barnet and his work. Many of Barnet's works are beautifully reproduced in this catalog, containing 43 color and 20 black-and-white illustrations
Man Ray / Lee Miller : partners in Surrealism by Phillip Prodger( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Surrealist artists Man Ray and Lee Miller lived together in Paris between 1929 and 1932, first as teacher and student, and later as lovers. Historically, Miller has been described as Ray's muse, but their brief, mercurial love affair was in fact a key source of mutual and sustained inspiration, resulting in some of the most powerful work of each artist's career. Bringing together unique and rarely seen photographs, paintings, sculpture, and drawings by Ray and Miller, as well as those of other renowned artists in their circle, including Picasso, Roland Penrose, Dora Maar, and Alexander Calder, this ... book tells the story of the tumultuous relationship between the two."--Jacket

The new spirit : American art in the Armory show, 1913 by Gail Stavitsky( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The International Exhibition of Modern Art, better known as the Armory Show, consisted of more than 1,300 works of art by American and European artists. During its original run in New York, Chicago, and Boston from mid-February to mid-May of 1913 and in the subsequent scholarship on the topic, most attention has centered on the avant-garde European artists, particularly Marcel Duchamp, Constantin Brancusi, and Henri Matisse, even though art by Americans comprised two-thirds of the works on view in this legendary show. The New Spirit is the first exhibit and catalogue to focus primarily on the American art in the Armory Show. While works by such renowned artists as Edward Hopper, Robert Henri, John Marin, Charles Sheeler, and George Bellows are included, this book highlights paintings, sculpture, watercolors, and prints by artists like Leon Kroll, Middleton Manigault, D. Putnam Brinley, Jerome Myers, Allen Tucker, Jonas Lie, E. Ambrose Webster, Chester Beach, and George Grey Barnard
