Barnett Newman : a catalogue raisonné by Richard Shiff( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing upon extensive documentation at the Barnett Newman Foundation, New York, Richard Shiff explains how Newman attempts to create an abstract art as a moral reaction to the horrors of World War II. Rejecting figuration and decoration alike, the artist became convinced in the mid-1940s that content emerges through the act of painting. As a result, the content of his works of the 1940s and 1950s is conveyed in what was at that time an entirely new way." "The majority of the illustrations in Shiff's essay are of works by European and American artists that Newman may personally have been familiar with. Also included is a selection of installation views and studio shots that cast interesting light on the artist and his practice."
Barnett Newman : paintings, sculptures, works on paper by Armin Zweite( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The central works of Barnett Newman's oeuvre - many of which are reproduced here as full-page color plates - are the subject of an analytical study by Armin Zweite. This study not only gives a comprehensive appraisal of Newman's paintings, from his beginnings through his later works - predominantly large-format, monochromatic paintings - but also deals in detail with all of Newman's sculptures - "Here I", "Here II", and "Here III", "Broken Obelisk", "Lace Curtain for Mayor Daley", and "Zim Zum I" and "Zim Zum II"--as well as with Newman's Model for a Synagogue. The book affords a more differentiated insight into Newman's hermetic oeuvre than would ever be possible in separate treatises on individual parts or periods of Newman's work."--Jacket

Who gets to call it art? : the legend of Henry Geldzahler, 1935-1994 by Peter Rosen( Visual )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Geldzahler (1935-94), star curator and cultural impresario, lived a life worth examining. The first curator of the Department of 20th-Century Art at the Metropolitan Museum, first director of visual arts for the National Endowment of the Arts, and the first full-time commissioner of cultural affairs for New York City, his landmark 1969 show at the Metropolitan is still remembered with awe. "New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970" filled 35 galleries with more than 400 groundbreaking works of contemporary art. This film is not a full biographical examination of this singular figure's life, but rather a portrait in profile, as many of 'his' artists talk about Geldzahler and what his friendship meant to them

Barnett Newman : the late work, 1965-1970 by Bradford Epley( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of Barnett Newman (1905-1970) has come to define the spiritual aspirations and material innovations of American painting in the mid-20th century. Best known for his zip paintings--in which thin vertical lines rise through large, bold planes of color--Newman's work was an abrupt departure from his contemporaries' gestural abstraction, yet anticipated Color Field painting. During the last five years of his life, Newman worked primarily in acrylic rather than oil paint, used increasingly vibrant colors, and experimented with shaped canvases. When he died at the age of 65, he left a group of works hanging in his studio, some deemed unfinished. Centered on three of these works, this book builds upon ten years of exhaustive technical research to provide a rare glimpse of Newman's relatively mysterious artistic process. The first scholarly publication devoted to the last years of Newman's oeuvre, it features more than 20 paintings from this period and earlier. The authors present eye-opening analysis of these unfinished works as well as rich insight into Newman's full body of work. This striking volume also includes photographic close-ups and scientific imaging that reveal previously unknown aspects of Newman's mediums and techniques

Looking at Barnett Newman by Jeremy Lewison( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Barnett Newman's paintings are instantly recognisable and impossible to categorise. His fields of colour, interrupted by contrasting vertical 'zips' or bands, can seem forbidding but his work is as compelling and intriguing as it is austere. Previously Newman has been described as a romantic, an artist of the sublime, a precursor of Minimalism, an existentialist and a spiritual painter obsessed with Judaism. In this book Jeremy Lewison puts forward a new approach to understanding Newman's work. The book also features key examples of Newman's writings on art."--Publisher description
