Anselm Kiefer by Daniel Arasse ( Book )
26 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Anselm Kiefer (b. 1945) is one of the most important and controversial artists of the twentieth century. This book, the first to analyze the essence of his work, begins with Kiefer's arrival on the international art scene at the 1980 Venice Biennale, when he sparked heated debate and controversy over the "Germanity" of his pieces. Since that time, through such diverse mediums as painting, gouache and watercolor, photography, artist's books, engravings, installations, and sculpture, Kiefer has created a body of work that is protean, theatrical, monumental, or intimate, depending on the period. He has interpreted the great political and cultural issues at the heart of the modern European sensibility: the connections among memory, history, and mythology; war; the Holocaust; and ethnic and national identity."--BOOK JACKET
Piero Manzoni by Piero Manzoni ( Book )
75 editions published between 1972 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Piero Manzoni was the enfant terrible of the post-war Italian avant-garde before his untimely death in Milan in 1963 at the age of just twenty-nine. Curated by Germano Celant, the artist's premier scholar and author of the two editions of the Manzoni catalogues raisonne's (Milan, 1975 and Milan, 2004), this stunning catalogue spans Manzoni's entire oeuvre, including works belonging to the Manzoni archives as well as several international museums and private collections. In addition, it presents several works by Manzoni's American and European contemporaries. Manzoni's alignments and responses to other artists active at the time, from Robert Rauschenberg to Yves Klein, Lucio Fontana to Robert Ryman, and Cy Twombly to Jasper Johns, demonstrate his own decisive contribution to the art of the late fifties and early sixties. The book is published on the occasion of the first complete retrospective in the U.S. on this artist, installed at the Gagosian Gallery, New York, from January 24 to March 7, 2009. This volume is a must-have for every conceptual art fan."--BOOK JACKET

Vertigo : a century of multimedia art from futurism to the Web ( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and Italian and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The twentieth century was marked by the fall of all specific artistic disciplines. Painting and sculpture began to intertwine with other artistic languages - architecture and photography, cinema and design - through the unbridled use of all techniques and all media. Vertigo: A Century of Multimedia Art, from Futurism to the Web aims to document multimedia overlays created through the use of new technologies - radio and television, the telephone and gramophone, film and the computer - that have marked the artistic practices of the historic and contemporary avant-gardes, from futurism to constructivism, dada to surrealism, pop art to conceptual art. It features a long line-up of images and thoughts, books and manifestos, films and photographs, discs and videos produced by the major protagonist of art - both yesterday and today, from Balla to Marinetti, Schwitters to Duchamp, Warhol to Beuys, Nauman to Kiefer and Paik to Anderson - for an aesthetic view completely free of all spatial, temporal and media-based confines."--Jacket
