Jasper Johns : an allegory of painting, 1955-1965 by Barbara Hess( Book )

16 editions published in 2007 in English and German and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume was published to accompany an exhibition of the works of American contemporary artist who works primarily in painting and printmaking, Jasper Johns (b. 1930). In the late 1950's, Johns emerged as force in the American art scene. His richly worked paintings of maps, flags, and targets led the artistic community away from Abstract Expressionism toward a new emphasis on the concrete. Johns laid the groundwork for both Pop Art and Minimalism. The exhibition of works depicted in this book was held at the National Gallery in Washington, concentrating on the pivotal decade 1955-1965 when Johns produced his most famous works. Alongside the full color reproductions of Johns' works are analysis of various diverse aspects of these early years of his career that established him as one of the great figures in modern art and stimulated much in art created by others
The drawings of Jasper Johns by Nan Rosenthal( Book )

8 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donald Judd by Donald Judd( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in German and English and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning as a critic and painter, Donald Judd moved into three dimensions in the early 1960s, with box-like structures arranged on the gallery floor or mounted on the wall. Initially constructed by hand, his sculptures were later industrially manufactured in such materials as galvanised iron, steel, Plexiglas and plywood. His use of brightly hued lacquers, vibrant colours and polished metals ran counter to the public's understanding of what 'minimalist' sculpture should look like." "The authors explore the conflicts between previous critical interpretations of Judd and his own philosophical, political and moral understanding of his work. They also examine the importance of colour and new man-made materials in Judd's work. The inclusion of a section on Judd's own permanent installations at the remote town of Marfa, Texas, a full chronology and a major essay by the artist on his own use of colour, completes a comprehensive survey of this compelling artist."--Jacket

De Kooning : paintings, 1960-1980, kunstmuseum basel by Willem De Kooning( Book )

16 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Willem de Kooning is celebrated in the United States as one of the most significant artists of the 20th century and a leading Abstract Expressionist. In Europe, however, the artist has yet to be fully recognized, particularly with regards to his work of the 1960s and 1970s, when he retreated from urban life to live and work on Long Island. This segment of de Kooning's oeuvre bears the imprint of a fundamental experience of the landscape, for it was in these Long Island works that he developed a new style of figuration, characterized by a transformed sense of color and energetic gesture. This period of vigorous, pioneering creativity is illuminated for the first time in this volume, which features a concentrated selection of large-format paintings. In images and essays by Klaus Kertess, Harold Rosenberg, and others, the book illustrates how de Kooning's paintings--although recognizable as landscapes--grew abstract under the influence of his intense experience of nature
Andy Warhol : drawings, 1942-1987 by Mark Francis( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kandinsky : the path to abstraction by Shulamith Behr( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wassily Kandinsky (18661944) pioneered abstract art and is a key figure in the history of modernism. This groundbreaking, fully illustrated study of Kandinsky's formative years follows his move from figurative painting to abstraction. Inspired in his early years by folklore scenes from Russia and the heightened colors of the landscape of southern Germany, he want on to co-found the Expressionist "Blaue Reiter" (Blue Rider) group of painters with Gabriele M]nter, Alexej Jawlensky, and Franz Marc. Gradually he stripped away the descriptive detail in his painting, hiding visual imagery behind fields of bright color encompassed by strong lines. He felt that what he had discovered was a path to a new spiritual reality, more akin to music than the physical world
Andy Warhol : the early sixties : paintings and drawings, 1961-1964 by Andy Warhol( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: After a successful career in advertising design, Andy Warhol (1928-1987) change course to pursue a career in art. His concerns, however, did not change, remaining centered on the world of consumerism and mass production. This publication illuminates Warhol's early years as a painter and producer of drawings, from 1961 to 1964. During this period, Warhol gradually replaced his somewhat individualized visual language with purely media-derived (and therefore collective) subject matter, and developed the mechanical painting process of silkscreening on canvas for which he became so well known. This fascinating process--in essence the gestation of Pop art--is examined here through several series, such as the Campbell's soup can paintings and the Dollar Bills, the star series of Elvis and Liz, the Death and Disaster pictures and the Flowers series from 1964. By concentrating on Warhol's early years, this publication makes it possible to comprehend the scope of his impact
Hans Holbein the Younger : the Basel years, 1515-1532 by Hans Holbein( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in 3 languages and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contains nearly the entire creative output of Hans Holbein the Younger's Basel period, i.e. the productive and innovative years between 1515 and 1532. In contrast to his later work in England, where he was active primarily as a portraitist and a designer at court, the Basel years were varied and multifaceted." "This publication also includes a series of essays by distinguished Holbein scholars. These cover Holbein's artistic development, analyze his graphic works, shed light on his religious panel paintings and focus on individual works and work complexes such as the woodcut series of the Images of Death. Holbein's artistic career, his patrons and his relationship to antique and contemporary art theory are also discussed."--Jacket

Canto d'amore : classicism in modern art and music, 1914-1935( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composers such as Picasso or Stravinsky after the First World War were not a return to the status quo before Cubism or before the new music but a continuation of modernism by other means. Reference back to the classical tradition (or traditions) by such artists and composers did not mean imitation or academicism but necessarily involved a profound alteration of the classical content and form. The complex theme, 'classicism in modern art and music 1914-1935', which is
Andreas Gursky by Andreas Gursky( Book )

9 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Famed worldwide for his epically proportioned photographs, Andreas Gursky is one of very few contemporary artists able to represent cultures of excessive information--which he does through images of supermarket wares, crowds, trash, architecture and nature. The extreme detail of Gursky's final image--achieved by digital restructuring--produces a vertiginous effect on the viewer, as it oscillates between total representation and total abstraction. It could be said that Gursky updates the eighteenth-century sublime for our times. This publication surveys the artist's most recent creations, on display at the renowned Kunstmuseum Basel throughout the winter of 2007/2008. Two new groups of works in particular, one on Formula 1 races and the other on the famous Arirang Festival (a closely choreographed mass spectacle in North Korea's capital of Pyongyang), are gathered here."--Publisher description
