Frank Gehry, architect by Frank O Gehry( Book )

12 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the 1997 completion of what many consider his greatest achievement - the stunning Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain - Frank O. Gehry has soared to the forefront of contemporary American architecture. Long recognized by his peers for his innovative designs, Gehry now enjoys a new level of prominence in the popular imagination. This book, the catalogue of the first large-scale retrospective of Gehry's work in 15 years, examines the architect's unique vision and provides the historical perspective with which to interpret the audacious accomplishments." "Essays by noted museum curators and architectural historians explore his iconoclastic spirit and trace his melding of unconventional materials and forms. Photographs, drawings, plans, and scale models communicate the breadth and complexity of Gehry's work and show how, in his view of architecture as sculptural space, Gehry has opened up a world of new possibilities for architecture."--Jacket

The emergent decade; Latin American painters and painting in the 1960's by Thomas M Messer( Book )

10 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 832 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalogue accompanied the first American museum retrospective of the English artist Francis Bacon. In his essay, Senior Curator Lawrence Alloway explores the essence of Bacon's painting beyond the usual associations with the grotesque. Instead, he offers a different argument: Bacon was a realist painter of his time, closely tied into the Grand Manner and painters such as Manet, Van Gogh, Velasquez, and Titian. Bacon continued and evolved the central tradition of European figure painting at a time when abstraction was dominating the art world. Also included are an exhibition checklist, 64 color and black-and-white reproductions, and a bibliography
Constantin Brancusi, 1876-1957 : a retrospective exhibition by Constantin Brancusi( Book )

3 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Picasso and the war years, 1937-1945 by Pablo Picasso( Book )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book draws upon new research and works that, in some cases, were held out of public view in Picasso's own collection to explore the critically important - but still under-studiedperiod of his life from the time of the Spanish Civil War through World War II and the Nazi occupation of France. This span of years is marked by some of the most intensely personal and expressive work of his long and diverse career." "This book is published in conjunction with a major exhibition organized by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. It traces Picasso's responses to the cataclysm of war as manifested in a lengthy series of figure paintings, still lifes, portraits, and cityscapes, amplified by prints, drawings, and photographs, drawn from collections all around the world."--Jacket
Africa, the art of a continent : 100 works of power and beauty( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspired by a landmark exhibition of art on view at the Guggenheim Museum, this book provides an accessible overview to one of the world's great art traditions. Africa is the birthplace of human civilization, and produced some of humankind's earliest art objects. This book presents masterworks organized into seven geographical areas - Ancient Egypt and Nubia, eastern Africa, southern Africa, central Africa, western Africa and the Guinea Coast, Sahel and Savanna, and Northern Africa. Spectacular sculptures in wood, bronze, and stone provide stunning proof of the aesthetic strength of African traditions, even in the case of utilitarian works that were not made to be "art". In some cases, the very concept of art was foreign to their makers, as Kwame Anthony Appiah explains in his essay. In an epic overview of Africa's earliest history, Ekpo Eyo makes a strong case for dispensing with the popular misconception that northern Africa, Northwestern Africa and Egypt - is somehow not an integral part of the African continent. Peter Mark addresses the religious and cultural interaction between northern and sub-Saharan Africa during the spread of Islam and Christianity. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. explores the reception of African art in the West in the early part of this century, outlining how these works - like most everything from Africa - provoked "a certain anxiety" in the Western imagination. Suzanne Preston Blier elucidates the myths surrounding the art of Africa. And an international team of scholars explores the significance of each of the objects reproduced. The volume is rounded off with a selected bibliography
Josef Albers : a retrospective by Josef Albers( Book )

9 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accompanying these stunning images are essays by Neal Benezra, Mary Emma Harris, Charles E. Rickart, and Nicholas Fox Weber. The catalogue also includes a selected exhibition history, bibliography of works on and by the artist, and a chronology with photographs of the Albers at various stages of life [Publisher description]
Oskar Kokoschka, 1886-1980 by Oskar Kokoschka( Book )

19 editions published in 1986 in German and English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joan Miró : a retrospective by Joan Miró( Book )

4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book emphasizes Miro's lifelong exploration of innovative media and methods, as well as his interest in the relationship of primitivism to modernism and of Surrealism to abstraction. Works representing all stages of Miro's long career are reproduced and discussed, ranging from realistic early paintings and drawings depicting his native Spain through later examples revealing the development of his imaginative and highly personal imagery"--Jacket

The great utopia : the Russian and Soviet avant-garde, 1915-1932 by Amsterdam (Netherlands)( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and German and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the years 1915-32, Moscow and Petrograd (from 1924, Leningrad) witnessed revolutions in art and politics that changed the course of Modernist art and modern history. Though the great revolution in art - the radical formal innovations constituted by Vladimir Tatlins "material assemblages" and Kazimir Malevich's Suprematism - in fact precede the political revolution by several years, the full weight of the new expressive possibilities was felt only after, and to a large extent because of the social upheavals of February and October 1917. As avant-garde artists, armed with new insights into form and materials, sought to realize the utopian aims of the Bolshevik Revolution, art and life seemed to merge."
The worlds of Nam June Paik by John G Hanhardt( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No artist has had a greater influence in imagining and realizing the artistic potential of video and television than Nam June Paik. Through a vast array of installations, videotapes, global television productions, films and performances, Paik has reshaped our perceptions of the temporal image in contemporary art. The Worlds of Nam June Paik is a celebration of the moving image and an appreciation of Paik's impact on the art of the late twentieth century. The full range of Paik's singular achievement is represented--from his early 1960s performance pieces through his videotapes, installations, megatrons and celebrated robot portraits--including his recent, spectacular laser-projection installations in the rotunda of Frank Lloyd Wright's Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. In an informative and personal essay, John G. Hanhardt, a longtime supporter of Paik's work, provides an overview of the artist's career while focusing on his important place in the history of the moving image. Also included are a selected exhibition and performance history as well as a selected bibliography [Publisher description]
