Georgia O'Keeffe : the poetry of things by Elizabeth Hutton Turner ( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Georgia O'Keeffe's extraordinary still-life paintings - of apples, leaves, flowers, shells, trees, rocks, crosses, bones, and doors - reinvented the genre through a new language of color and form that synthesized Eastern thought and a Western style of painting. This book is the first in-depth exploration of O'Keeffe's unique contribution to still-life painting."--BOOK JACKET

Georgia O'Keeffe : abstraction by Georgia O'Keeffe ( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although Georgia O'Keefe (1887-1986) has long been celebrated as a central figure in twentieth-century art, the abstract works she created throughout her career have remained overlooked by critics and the public in favor of her representational subjects. In 1915, O'Keeffe leaped into abstraction with a group of charcoal drawings that were among the most radical works of art produced in the United States at that time. In these and subsequent abstractions, O'Keeffe sought to transcribe her ineffable thoughts and emotions. While her output of abstract work declined after 1930, she returned to abstraction in the mid-1940s with a new vocabulary that provided a precedent for a younger generation of abstractionists. By devoting itself to this largely unexplored area of her work, Georgia O'Keeffe: Abstraction is an overdue acknowledgment of her place as one of America's first abstract artists. In addition to rethinking O'Keefe's contribution to the development of abstract American art, this book chronicles the shifts and changes in subject matter and style over the span of her long career. It adds significant new insight into her work and life, reproducing excerpts of previously sealed letters written by O'Keeffe to photographer and gallerist Alfred Stieglitz, whom she married in 1924. These previously unpublished letters, along with other primary documents referenced by the authors, offer an intimate glimpse into her creative method and intentions as an artist
Modigliani : beyond the myth by N.Y.) Jewish Museum (New York ( Book )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) is one of the best known - and most misunderstood - artists of the twentieth century. His incisive portraits, erotically charged nudes, elegant drawings of caryatids, and primitivistic sculpture have been admired for decades. Modigliani's work, however, has typically been examined in the limited context of his so-called bohemian, anti-intellectual lifestyle. This book revises this approach toward Modigliani's art, presenting a revisionist examination of the unique historical, social, religious, and cultural significance of his oeuvre." "Modigliani: Beyond the Myth looks at the artist and his art from a variety of important perspectives: his proud heritage as a Sephardic Jew, whose spirituality embraced non-Western, classical, and Christian iconography while retaining its own ethnic identity; his critical engagement and melding of tribal and ethnographic art with Judaism in his portraiture; the representation of the female nude in his works from a feminist cultural perspective; the remarkable reception of his work in Italy after his death, and the failure of traditional art history to account for or analyze these important aspects of his life and work."--Jacket
Jacob Lawrence : the migration series by Jacob Lawrence ( Book )
3 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Through a series of paintings, Jacob Lawrence illustrates the mass exodus of African-Americans who moved to the North in search for a better life. Lawrence's parents were among those who migrated between 1916-1919, considered the first wave of the migration. The Great Migration was the largest movement of black people since slavery removed Africans to the Americas. The paintings are accompanied by captions that combine history, sociology, and poetry
Margaret Bourke-White : the photography of design, 1927-1936 by Stephen Bennett Phillips ( Book )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Margaret Bourke-White is best known as the first staff photographer of Fortune magazine, the first female war correspondent, and the woman whose photographs made the covers of Life magazine famous. But before she began traveling throughout the world to document history in the making, Bourke-White was creating evocative abstract photographs of American industry and architecture." "Margaret Bourke-White: Photography of Design, 1927-1936 is an exploration of the first decade of the career of a remarkable photographer. An essay by Stephen Bennett Phillips chronicles these years and interprets the work produced, much of which has never before been published. This book is the companion to the nationwide traveling exhibition of the same name, organized by The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C."--BOOK JACKET

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two lives : Georgia O'Keeffe & Alfred Stieglitz : a conversation in paintings and photographs by Georgia O'Keeffe ( Book )
5 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Photography historian Belinda Rathbone, the author of a forthcoming biography of the American photographer Walker Evans, looks at the couple's life together from the perspective of Stieglitz who, at the age of fifty-two, was thoroughly rejuvenated when Georgia entered his life. Art historian Elizabeth Hutton Turner examines the relationship from O'Keeffe's point of view. She portrays how a gifted but inexperienced artist came into Stieglitz's world at the age of twenty-nine and in a short space of time evolved from apprentice to collaborator and finally to a leading artist in her own right. As Associate Curator at The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., Dr. Turner organized the traveling exhibition that accompanies this book." "Two Lives reproduces the work of both artists with the stunning quality and fidelity for which Callaway books are known. Together, the reproductions and the three essays form a unique account of two lives and two artists."--Jacket

Arthur Dove : a retrospective by Debra Bricker Balken ( Book )
5 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The American artist Arthur Dove (1880-1946), purportedly the first artist to have produced an abstract painting, has always occupied a central place in writings on early American modernism. This book accompanies the first major exhibition on Dove since 1974. The exhibition, organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art and The Phillips Collection, covers the period from 1908, the year after Dove took up painting, through 1946, the year of his death. It is comprised of approximately eighty paintings, collages, pastels, and charcoal drawings."--BOOK JACKET
Calder/Miró by Alexander Calder ( Book )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Sculptor Alexander Calder (1898-1976) and painter Joan Miro (1893-1983) became lifelong friends after their first meeting in Paris in 1928. This book and the exhibition it accompanies are about their extraordinary friendship and the early years of their careers." "The charming correspondence between Calder and Miro is published here for the first time. It begins in 1928 with Calder's letter introducing himself to Miro and continues after Calder's death with Miro's poetic homage to his old friend. Rare photographs of the two men together and of the gifts of artwork they exchanged document the friendship. An extensive chronology highlights the intersecting lives of the two artists and, with the correspondence, opens a window into the personal and professional lives of these two giants of artistic invention." "Calder and Miro shared many artistic interests, and the catalogue is organized around common themes such as the circus, bestiary, universe, and constellations. The artists shared an ambition to create monumental works for public spaces, but while waiting for those opportunities their unique approach to their work allowed them to achieve monumentality on a reduced scale. Miro's small Constellations evoke the tradition of Romanesque frescoes, while Calder's earliest stabiles and mobiles occupy space in a way that transcends their size, paving the way for later monumental works. The editors, in their two essays and in their organization of the color plates, focus on the first two decades of the artists' careers, culminating in the monumental public commissions that Calder and Miro received for the decoration of the Terrace Plaza Hotel, Cincinnati, in 1947."--BOOK JACKET

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Snapshot : painters and photography, Bonnard to Vuillard ( Book )
6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The advent of the Kodak camera in 1888 made photography accessible to amateurs as well as to professionals. Artists were not immune to its allure, and many began experimenting with the camera as a means of capturing images as studies for final works and of observing the world and the people in it. Snapshot investigates seven Post-Impressionist painters and printmakers: Pierre Bonnard, George Hendrik Breitner, Maurice Denis, Henri Evenepoel, Henri Rivière, Félix Vallotton, and Edouard Vuillard. Although celebrated for their works on canvas and paper, these artists also made many personal and informal snapshots. Depicting interiors, city streets, nudes, and portraits, these photographs were kept private and never exhibited. As a result, most have never been published. Juxtaposing personal photographs with the related paintings and prints by these Post-Impressionist artists, Snapshot offers a new perspective on early photography and on the synthesis of painting and photography at the end of the 19th century."--Provided by publisher
