The J. Paul Getty Museum handbook of the collections by J. Paul Getty Museum ( Book )
46 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,010 libraries worldwide
"This revised and updated Handbook of the Collections includes many major objects that recently have been added to the collections, as well as the more familiar masterpieces frequent visitors have become acquainted with over the years. Moreover, it marks the historic moment at which the Museum commences operating on two sites simultaneously - the dazzling site on a hilltop in the Santa Monica Mountains and the magnificently reimagined Getty Villa in Malibu devoted to Western antiquities. Readers who have not been among the millions of visitors to the two sites will find this Handbook an inducement for paying a visit; for those who have seen the collections, may it recall the experience and enrich their recollection."--BOOK JACKET.

The great empires of the ancient world ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 898 libraries worldwide
A team of internationally renowned scholars surveys the major imperial powers of the ancient world, from 1600 B.C. to A.D. 500, and ranging geographically from the ancient Mediterranean to East Asia. The authors investigate the nature of empires--including Egypt, Rome, Babylonia, Persia, India, and China--and their legacies in the modern age. Highlights include fascinating character profiles of great rulers such as the warrior pharaohs Thutmose and Rameses of Egypt, the self-obsessed First Emperor of China, who desperately tried to cheat death, and the brilliant Roman emperor Augustus, who created the most powerful empire the world had ever seen. "Witness to Empire" spreads bring these civilizations to life in the words of their leaders and inhabitants. Not only will this book appeal to scholars and students, but its accessible text and wealth of illustrations also will feed the popular interest in this subject matter reflected in the recent success of films, television series, and museum exhibitions showcasing ancient cultures.
A history of old age ( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 892 libraries worldwide
"Here six authors examine how the best thinkers and artists of each historical epoch in the West have treated old age. They examine, too, the myths that have grown up around it - especially in our own time, when we firmly believe that never have people grown so old as they now do! - and the images, both visual and verbal, that have been created to encapsulate that thing which we shall all become. Opulently and ingeniously illustrated with reproductions drawn from an astonishingly wide range of eras and media, A History of Old Age provides a welcome and refreshing look at what the subject has meant to the Greeks and the Romans, the medievals, the Romantics, and the modern men and women of rootless urban societies."--Jacket.

The book brings together images from the era and place most closely associated with Evans, namely, the rural South of the 1930s.

"Andrei Codrescu's essay brings a fresh perspective to this great photographer's passionate investigation of the signs he discovered in the urban North, the rural South, and beyond."--BOOK JACKET.

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 645 libraries worldwide
"Celebrating twenty years of collecting photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Photographers of Genius at the Getty and the exhibition it accompanies spotlight the genius of thirty-eight influential photographers whose work is held in depth by the Museum. From Hyppolyte Bayard to Diane Arbus, the innovative pioneers presented here span more than a century of photography from the early years of the new art in the 1840s to the early 1960s. Each advanced the art of photography and, in the process, brought about a change in the history of art, as well." "Many well-known names are included here, such as Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Eugene Atget, Brassai, Julia Margaret Cameron, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Andre Kertesz, Dorothea Lange, Gustave Le Gray, Man Ray, August Sander, Alfred Stieglitz, and Edward Weston. Others will be new even to experts: early innovators Anna Atkins, Henry Bosse, Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey, the Langenheim brothers, and Camille Silvy have been rediscovered in recent years, bringing to light the importance of their particular contributions to the history of art and photography. Each artist is represented by three related images and interpretive remarks by the author."--BOOK JACKET.

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 604 libraries worldwide
During a career that spanned more than fifty years, two continents, and work in many media, Man Ray (1890-1976) produced a large body of photographic images that continue to command our attention. This volume presents his early work in New York in the 1910s, selections from his sizeable Paris œuvre in the 20s, 30s, and 50s, and photographs taken during his time in Hollywood in the 40s. Though in later years he expressed a desire to be remembered as a painter, Man Ray continued to work with photography throughout his life, pushing the boundaries of the medium with cameraless images, solarized portraits, and other innovations. The Getty Museum's collection of three hundred works by Man Ray includes vintage prints from the 1910s through the 1960s. This volume presents more than fifty photographs, with commentary on each image by Katherine Ware, assistant curator of photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum. The volume also includes an overview of his life and the edited transcript of a symposium on his career.
Engaged observers : documentary photography since the sixties by Brett Abbott ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 581 libraries worldwide
Overview: In the decades following World War II, an independently minded, critically engaged form of photojournalism began to flourish. It was not destined for the morning papers or exclusively for newsmagazines, and it did not attempt to be neutral. This kind of photojournalism was self-assigned. It declared its independence from the mainstream media's editorial control, and it was disseminated to the public through books, exhibitions, articles, and, more recently, the Web. Engaged Observers focuses on nine photographers who have participated in the development of this documentary approach. Surveyed are Leonard Freed (Black in White America), Philip Jones Griffiths (Vietnam Inc.), W. Eugene Smith (Minamata), Susan Meiselas (Nicaragua: June 1978-July 1979), Mary Ellen Mark (Streetwise), Larry Towell (The Mennonites), Sebastiao Salgado (Migrations), Lauren Greenfield (Girl Culture), and James Nachtwey ("The Sacrifice"). Each section opens with an introductory essay that sets the work in its evolving historical context.
