Charles E. Burchfield the sacred woods by Nancy Weekly ( )
3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Surprisingly, during the 1920s when Burchfield still harbored the doubts of his youthful apostasy, he produced a small number of prints, drawings, and paintings based on Biblical subjects. After designing wallpapers for the M.H. Birge & Sons Company in Buffalo, New York from 1921 to 1929, the artist resigned to devote himself fully to his painting, encouraged by Frank K.M. Rehn of New York, who offered to be his art dealer. Burchfield became known as a painter of the American Scene, the champion of unpretentious small town life, as well as the urban documentarian who recorded the ennui of a man-made landscape, often being compared with his Rehn Gallery colleague, Edward Hopper
Plains Indian drawings, 1865-1935 : pages from a visual history by Janet Catherine Berlo ( Book )
5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This lavish volume is the most comprehensive treatment to date of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Plains Indian drawings. It is published on the occasion of the first extensive exhibition of this material, organized by The Drawing Center, New York, and The American Federation of Arts. Featured are thirty-six artists from the Lakota, Cheyenne, Kiowa, and Arapaho tribes, such as Black Hawk, Making Medicine, Wohaw, Little Shield, and White Bull. Many of the artists were previously unknown even to experts in the field, and dozens of the drawings are published here for the first time. The eight essays, four artist statements, and catalogue entries on 153 works provide a wealth of information on Plains Indian culture, religion, and individual artists during the reservation era
Eva Hesse drawing by Eva Hesse ( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Eva Hesse (1936-1970) was a highly experimental artist who continually challenged the conventions of her time. For Hesse, drawing played a unique role, providing the nexus between her works in all media. "Eva Hesse Drawing" is the first book to explore her drawing process, following her work from drawing to painting and sculpture, and always back to drawing. The book features important, recently rediscovered 'working drawings', providing an intimate look at Hesse's everyday practice and methodology. An accomplished draftswoman, Hesse began to develop her wandering, tentative line while studying at Yale University in the late 1950s. Her early 1960s works on paper engaged with visual vocabularies from geometry to biomorphic abstraction. In 1965, Hesse combined her tactile sensibility for materials with her stringlike line to achieve a breakthrough in her astonishing reliefs, bridging the space between two and three dimensions. Balancing the disembodiment of line with its intensified materialisation, Hesse went on to develop one of the most innovative oeuvres of the twentieth century, anticipating the hybridisation of media and crossing borderlines linking one impossible space to another

Louise Bourgeois : drawings & observations by Louise Bourgeois ( Book )
3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Though known primarily for her sculpture, Louise Bourgeois has displayed a lifelong passion for drawing and considers it to be essential to her oeuvre. This exceptional book is the first to combine over fifty years of the artist's drawings with her own observations. Not merely preparatory studies for her sculptures, Bourgeois's drawings are fully realized, independent works of art that rank as some of her most powerful and emotive creations. In the text accompanying the illustrations, Bourgeois, a highly autobiographical artist, describes and explains the sources for each work - and in the process provides fascinating insights into her life and art

Between street and mirror : the drawings of James Ensor by James Ensor ( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Early in his career, Belgian painter James Ensor (1860-1949) broke away from Impressionism, rejecting its prettiness in favor of an original, highly dramatic style. Incorporating elements of satire, caricature, masquerade, and the grotesque, Ensor was a sharp observer of his social and political milieu and a skilled controversialist. Bridging the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and not easily fitting into one particular movement or group, his drawings are increasingly valued for their innovative subjects and techniques, as well as the strong social criticism at their heart. This volume, published to accompany the first major New York exhibition of Ensor's drawings, includes more than one hundred plates, most of them in color. Essays by Susan M. Canning (College of New Rochelle), Marcel De Maeyer (University of Ghent), and Robert Hoozee (Museum of Fine Arts, Ghent), along with a chronology by Xavier Tricot, serve to place Ensor's drawings in the context of both artistic and historical developments of his time and his oeuvre."--BOOK JACKET
