Georgia O'Keeffe, art and letters by Georgia O'Keeffe( Book )

28 editions published between 1977 and 1989 in 4 languages and held by 2,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a catalog accompanying the centennial exhibition of American artist Georgia O'Keeffe's (1887-1986) work at the National Gallery of Art. This work includes color reproductions of the 120 pieces in the exhibition, as well as 125 letters O'Keeffe wrote during her lifetime. This survey includes charcoals and pencil drawings on paper, but most is devoted to her work in color -- water colors and pastels on paper, and oils on canvas. O'Keeffe's letters are grouped according to four periods in her life: 1915-1918, when she was an art teacher in Virginia, South Carolina and Texas; 1919-1929, when she lived with Alfred Stieglitz in New York; 1929-1946, a period of time when she became more attached to the Southwest, and broke with the way of life in New York City and the east coast; and 1947-1981, when, after Stieglitz's death, she moved to and took up residence in New Mexico permanently. Through the personal letters that form the core of the book, O'Keeffe emerges as an even more complex and passionate person than she herself was willing to reveal before her death in 1986

Ellsworth Kelly : the years in France, 1948-1954 by Ellsworth Kelly( Book )

19 editions published in 1992 in 4 languages and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late 1950s, Ellsworth Kelly emerged as a major figure in the vanguard of so-called "Hard Edge" New York abstraction. Noted for their articulate, sharply contoured planes, unified perspective, and shifting balances between foreground and background, Kelly's works expanded the language of both figuration and abstraction, establishing him as one of the leading postwar American artists. Earlier in his career, Kelly had spent six years in France, from 1948 to 1954, a time that proved decisive to the evolution of his art. Sponsored by the G. I. Bill, the artist closely studied contemporary and historical art, architecture and culture in Paris and various regions of France, as well as meeting with several other European and American artists. These were all critical stimuli at a time when Kelly was developing his distinct mature style. Published in connection with an exhibition co-organized by the Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume, Paris, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., this scintillating volume presents the first complete and accurate portrait of this pivotal stage in Kelly's career, drawing on previously unpublished work and observations by the artist. Excerpts from interviews and correspondence, and a chronicle of the artist's activities are included. The essays address the creative and interpretive issues of Kelly's work in relation to modern abstraction, his use of the "chance" and the modular grid, and the role of his photographs in recording motifs in nature. This volume reproduces for the first time all Kelly's paintings and low-relief sculpture of the period, as well as a selection of his earlier paintings done in New Jersey and Boston. A number of his photographs, drawings, sketchbooks, and collages are also featured. Comparative illustrations include portraits of his artist friends, photographs of Paris, and works by Matisse, Picasso, and others. Ironically, Kelly sold only one painting during his years in Paris although he participated in several avant-garde exhibitions. Yet the achievements of this period are recognized today as Kelly's first important works and have clearly established his international reputation
