Joan Miró : the ladder of escape by Joan Miró( Book )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joan Miró's paintings are among the most widely recognized of any modern artist, reproduced everywhere from books to T-shirts to posters. While he is most often seen as a surrealist or a postwar abstract painter, terms he rejected, this book brings new insights into Miró's work by framing it in the context of the turbulent times in which he lived. Miró's contemporary, Picasso, left Spain, promising never to return under a Fascist government. In contrast, Miró chose internal exile, removing himself to the island of Mallorca, a decision that has led to his being viewed as a less political artist. This book challenges that impression by focusing on Miró's politically engaged works, from the rural, anarchist tradition and strong Catalan nationalism reflected in early paintings like The Farm and Head of a Catalan Peasant to the triptych The Hope of a Condemned Man (1974) through which he publicly declared his opposition to Franco. Drawing on new scholarship from an international group of experts, the book accompanies the first exhibition in nearly half a century to show work from throughout Miró's career. It sheds new light on the life and achievements of one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century--Publisher

Sean Scully : a retrospective by Sean Scully( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Irish-born Sean Scully is one of the most important abstract painters alive today. Over the course of more than thirty years, he has produced a vibrant, compelling and constantly inventive body of work in a range of media that is widely collected and internationally exhibited. His familiar signature style of lines or bands of color alluding to architectural elements such as portals, windows and walls is instantly recognizable." "Published to accompany a major European exhibition tour, Sean Scully: A Retrospective includes work in all media - painting, photographs, prints, drawings and watercolors - from the early 1970s to the present, the only book to cover Scully's entire career to date. Texts by respected curators Danilo Eccher, Lorand Hegyi and Maria Lluisa Borras and award-winning American critic and art historian Donald Kuspit position the artist in his rightful place within the traditions of earlier abstraction and of painting in general, while discussing the spiritual, emotional and very human nature of his art."--Jacket

Flying over water = Volar damunt l'aigua by Peter Greenaway( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explosion!( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the years following the Second World War, artists across the world began to attack the most basic premises of painting, in ways that were both aggressive and playful. The creative act itself was deemed as important as the painting that resulted from it, creating an energetic interzone between painting and performance in which chance procedures, the movement of bodies and the participation of spectators were all recruited as tools. "Explosion! Painting as Action" explores the connections and cross fertilizations between painting, performance and conceptual art from the late 1940s to the present. Examining painting, photography, video, performance, dance and sound art, this volume includes works by Lynda Benglis, Niki de Saint Phalle, Cai Guo-Qiang, the Gutai Group, Allan Kaprow, Yves Klein, Alison Knowles, Ana Mendieta, Rivane Neuenschwander, Yoko Ono, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, Carolee Schneemann, Shozo Shimamoto, Lawrence Weiner and many others."--Publisher's website
Behind the facts : Interfunktionen 1968-1975 by Gloria Moure( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cet ouvrage accompagne l'exposition "Behind The facts. Interfunktionen 1968-1975" organisée par la Fundacio Joan Miro, Barcelone et coproduite avec le Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves, Porto, et le Museum Fridericianum, Kassel. Cette exposition revient sur la création occidentale des années 70 très marquée par la performance. La revue Interfunktionen dont 12 numéros ont été publiés entre 1968 et 1975 fournit la trame chronologique de l'exposition. Interfunktionen était une revue interdisciplinaire sans restriction de media et ouverte à tout style artistique. L'objectif de cette exposition est de documenter une période artistique très riche, au cours de laquelle de nouveaux concepts et de nombreuses préoccupations, encore d'actualité dans l'art d'aujourd'hui, ont vu le jour. Elle s'appuie sur les arts visuels, sur les fims mais aussi sur les créations musicales
