Jasper Johns by Michael Crichton ( Book )
13 editions published between 1977 and 1994 in English and held by 1,883 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This extraordinary book pairs two major talents of our time, the painter/sculptor/printmaker Jasper Johns and the physician/novelist/filmmaker Michael Crichton. Since it first appeared in 1977, Michael Crichton's Jasper Johns has been considered the preeminent study of one of America's foremost living artists. Abrams is proud now to publish this completely revised, expanded, and updated version of a modern classic. Jasper Johns has often been called an "artist's artist." In his use of found objects and commonplace imagery, he creates tantalizing, intellectually demanding works of unparalleled originality and uncommon beauty. His new work, with its puns, optical illusions, and embedded images ranging from George Ohr pots to the Isenheim Altarpiece to Picasso etchings, has attracted an unprecedented level of intense critical attention. Here Michael Crichton, author of The Andromeda Strain, Jurassic Park, and Rising Sun, among other bestsellers, brings to bear his own extraordinary gifts, particularly his analytic skill and his superior abilities as narrator and storyteller. Crichton, who has known Johns and collected his work for more than twenty years, offers a dazzling succession of intimate glimpses of Johns' potent and seemingly contradictory aspects, many of them highlighted by interviews with the artist, his dealers, and distinguished contemporary critics. He also conducts a powerful, sensitive, and wide reaching critique of Johns' work - and in so doing offers an intriguing investigation into the very nature of the artistic response. Accompanying Crichton's text are 186 black-and-white illustrations, including works by Johns, photographs of him, and comparative examples. Then comes a spectacular display of 231 paintings, prints, sculptures, and drawings by Jasper Johns, ranging from his earliest pieces to his most recent works, some forty years later. Of these, 128 are reproduced in duotone and 103 in full color, including six magnificent foldout pages - the most lavish view of the artist's work ever assembled between book covers. Meticulous scholarship supports this presentation of Jasper Johns by Michael Crichton in every respect. Notes, a selected bibliography, and an index of illustrated works complete this extraordinary volume - a book for the layman, for the art specialist, and for all who love contemporary art

The American century : art & culture, 1950-2000 by Lisa Phillips ( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The second half of the twentieth century has been a time of rapid change and accelerated cycles of creativity. In this volume, Lisa Phillips keeps pace with the dizzying energy of these decades by focusing on the avant-garde - the artists who propelled American art after World War II and who continually challenge our basic assumptions about what art is and what the role of the artist should be within the turbulent social atmosphere of twentieth-century America. Sidebar essays by a variety of experts in related fields highlight the broad cultural context - from rock 'n' roll to underground film to postmodern dance - in which vanguard American art flourished."--BOOK JACKET

Shaker design by June Sprigg ( Book )
12 editions published between 1966 and 1986 in English and held by 1,116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Shaker movement in America began in 1774 when Mother Ann Lee emigrated from Manchester, England, with a small group of followers, and settled in New York State. Despite impoverished beginnings, the Shakers flourished in the early nineteenth century, and by 1840 there were four to six thousand members living in eighteen principle communities from Maine to Kentucky. Turning away from society, they lived in large families that were both celibate and communal. In striving for heaven on earth, they created a visual environment of such harmony and quiet power that it continues to impress observers today, when the Shakers have all but passed from the American scene. The many works presented in this beautiful volume reveal the Shaker commitment to excellence in all matters. The chairs, cases of drawers, work stands, baskets, oval boxes, wheelbarrows, stoves, looms, and even tailoring tools have a purity of form that transcends mere utility and elevates our appreciation beyond a sense of function."--Amazon

Unknown terrain : the landscapes of Andrew Wyeth by Beth Venn ( Book )
3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,072 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume, which accompanies a landmark exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, is the first to focus exclusively on the exquisite landscape paintings and watercolors that Wyeth has been creating throughout his long career. Fluid, expressionistic, often breathtaking in their abstract beauty, these landscapes enable us to view Wyeth's work without the usual focus on narrative and anecdote. By revealing the art behind the story, they offer a fresh basis for understanding Wyeth's genius

Alice Neel by Alice Neel ( Book )
9 editions published between 1974 and 2000 in English and held by 1,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume accompanies a landmark exhibition organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art to celebrate the centennial of the artist's birth. It reviews the full range of Neel's paintings, from her early watercolors to the late work for which she finally achieved renown. Three essays, by Ann Temkin, Susan Rosenberg, and Richard Flood, examine Neel's indirect presence in her paintings, the roots of her work in the culture of the 1930s, and her portrayal of the contemporary art world. The transcript from a roundtable discussion among Neel's sitters and a richly illustrated chronology provide much new information on the artist's life and work."--BOOK JACKET

Picasso and American art by Michael C FitzGerald ( Book )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 964 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Picasso and American Art is a publication juxtaposing works by Picasso with the paintings, sculptures, and drawings created in response by an extremely diverse group of his contemporaries and successors, including Max Weber, Stuart Davis, Arshile Gorky, John Graham, Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, David Smith, Roy Lichtenstein, and Jasper Johns." "Based on extensive research, Michael FitzGerald's text provides valuable new information on the fundamental role that Picasso played in the development of modern American art - both through his friendships with individual artists and through the dissemination of his evolving work. This book also documents, for the first time, the accessibility of Picasso's work in the United States between 1910 and 1957 in exhibitions, collections, and publications through a comprehensive chronology."--BOOK JACKET
