The radical camera : New York's Photo League, 1936-1951 by Mason Klein( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Artists in the Photo League, active from 1936 to 1951, were known for capturing sharply revealing, compelling moments from everyday life. Their focus centered on New York City and its vibrant streets--a newsboy at work, a brass band on a bustling corner, a crowded beach at Coney Island. Though beautiful, the images harbor strong social commentary on issues of class, child labor, and opportunity. The Radical Camera explores the fascinating blend of aesthetics and social activism at the heart of the Photo League, tracing the group's left-leaning roots and idealism to the worker-photography movement in Europe. Influenced by mentors Lewis Hine, Berenice Abbott, and Paul Strand, artists in the Photo League worked within a unique complex comprising a school, a darkroom, a gallery, and a salon, in which photography was discussed as both a means for social change and an art form. The influence of the Photo League artists on modern photography was enormous, ushering in the New York School. Presenting 150 works of the members of the Photo League alongside complementary essays that offer new interpretations of the League's work, ideas, and pedagogy, this beautifully illustrated book features artists including Margaret Bourke-White, Sid Grossman, Morris Engel, Lisette Model, Ruth Orkin, Walter Rosenblum, Aaron Siskind, W. Eugene Smith, and Weegee, among many others"--Provided by publisher
George Tooker by Robert Cozzolino( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and German and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Tooker first came to prominence for imaginative visions that expressed the uncertainity of the Cold War era. Over the past sixty years, using his own particular blend of figuration and abstraction, he has continued to create radiantly illuminated yet disquieting images. Imbued with moral, spiritual, and sensual power, they quietly demonstrate his passion for issues of social equality, and have garnered admiration from critics and peers alike for their acuity and virtuoso technique." "This book, the first representative overview of Tooker's work for thirty years, provides a much-deserved and comprehensive examination of the scope of his art. In essays comprising new research and offering fresh insights, it explores his passion for composition, his spirituality and his exploration of identity. Featuring superb reproductions of more than eighty of the artist's timeless images, the book also enables readers to see the unexpected ways in which Tooker's work echoes what has been considered avant garde in American art and to appreciate the depth of his resonant, prescient imagery. A major new study of one of America's most influential modern painters, George Tooker celebrates the lifetime achievement of an artist whose work subtly challenges conventinal prejudices and captures the essential mystery at the heart of the human experience."--Jacket

Optic nerve : perceptual art of the 1960s by Joe Houston( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The abstract art movement Op art came to international attention in the mid-1960s, an era of global social and technological change. The movement, which placed emphasis on viewer perception by exploring optical effects in painting, sculpture and light installation, quickly gained in popularity but met with considerable criticism. This important book published to accompany the first major Op art exhibition by on American museum in twenty-five years, examines the development of the movement, its cultural context and its widespread impact on advertising, fashion and film-making. Featuring visually stunning works by such key figures as Josef Albers, Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely, Optic Nerve offers a timely reappraisal of this highly influential movement."--Jacket

Renoir's women by Ann Dumas( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking as its starting point two very different but equally engaging female portraits, which Renoir painted twenty years apart - Madame Henriot en travesti, a portrait of the Parisian actress dressed as a pageboy, and Christine Lerolle Embroidering, showing the daughter of Renoir's friend the painter Henry Lerolle in a scene from her everyday life - Renoir's Women brings to life the major themes of Renoir's captivating pictures of women with enlightening text and over eighty beautiful illustrations, including some of the most perceptive and intimate portrayals of women ever painted."--Jacket
George Bellows : an artist in action by Mary Sayre Haverstock( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Wesley Bellows (1882-1925) painted American life in action. From prizefights and polo matches to children playing on the banks of a river, his subjects reflect his vivacious approach to the world around him. A major realist painter, his vigorous brushstrokes also compose landscapes of remote areas of natural beauty, scenes of bustling city streets, and intimate portraits of society figures, friends, and family. All dynamics of early twentieth-century America fill Bellows's canvases and prints." "Bellows studied at the New York School of Art under Robert Henri and became one of the leading artists of the Ashcan school. His technical brilliance and vibrant realism were celebrated from early in his career, and at the age of twenty-six he became one of the youngest artists ever to be elected to the National Academy of Design in New York. Bellows exhibited often, to great acclaim, and completed many significant commissions, achieving a powerfully impressive body of work before his sudden death in his early forties." "This book brings together the most important works of Bellows's short but prolific career, combining them with an in-depth biography of the artist. Photographs of family and friends, as well as of Bellows himself throughout his life, illuminate the text and complete this portrait of George Bellows, the artist and the man."--Jacket

Shared intelligence : American painting and the photograph by Barbara Buhler Lynes( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shared Intelligence, companion catalog to the exhibition of the same name, explores the stimulating and productive relationship between painting and photography in American art. The essays in this beautifully illustrated book describe how this dynamic developed, beginning in the nineteenth century and continuing to the twenty-first--from Thomas Eakins to the Stieglitz circle and Georgia O'Keeffe to contemporary art. The book shows that while the initial proponents of photography were struggling to secure its place among the fine arts, photography's inherent expressiveness was leading painters t

Edgar Degas : the last landscapes by Ann Dumas( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The great French Impressionist Edgar Degas (1834-1917) is best known for his images of Parisian life-for his superb renditions of cafe society, the ballet, and horse racing-and for his intimate interior scenes of bathing women. As this beautifully illustrated book reveals, however, he also maintained a lifelong interest in landscape subjects that until now has gone largely unrecognized. Despite taunting his friend Henri Rouart for "painting on the edge of a cliff," commenting "painting is not a sport," his love of this genre inspired him to create many paintings, pastels, and prints; it was, after all, the theme that the fifty-eight-year-old artist chose for his only solo show in France." "Edgar Degas: The Last Landscapes examines in detail this little-known aspect of Degas's work, focusing on his sensitive depictions of the scenery of northern France, and in particular the small coastal town of Saint-Valery-sur-Somme, which the artist had known since childhood. It analyzes Degas's energetic experimentation with both painting and print-making techniques, and, with the aid of his sketchbook drawings and accompanying notes, cogently reassesses the importance of landscape painting to his career." "In bringing together close to one hundred works by Degas, this book offers fresh insight into the work of a much-loved artist and an invaluable addition to our understanding of Impressionist art.

Toulouse-Lautrec and La Vie Moderne : Paris 1880-1910 by Phillip Dennis Cate( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accompanying a major traveling exhibition, this catalogue celebrates the groundbreaking avant-garde artists whose works embody the spirit and decadence of fin de siècle and Belle Époque Paris. Toulouse-Lautrec and La Vie Moderne is a celebration of the work of a generation of avant-garde artists at the turn of the nineteenth century in Paris who fought for artistic liberation against the strict codes of the Academy. Like the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists who preceded them, the Nabis, Incohérents, Symbolists, and Naturalists sought to reinterpret a rapidly changing society that was no longer easily definable. Artists such as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Édouard Vuillard, Pierre Bonnard, Mary Cassatt, and Félix Vallotton, among others, render with naturalism and vivacity modern Parisian life and its café-concerts, cabarets, and brothels; street scenes and landscapes; and intimate domestic interiors.
