Arshile Gorky : his life and work by Hayden Herrera( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Turkey around 1900. Vosdanik Adoian escaped the massacres of Armenians in 1915 only to watch his mother die of starvation and his family scatter in their flight from the Turks. Arriving in America in 1920, Adoian invented the pseudonym Arshile Gorky - and obliterated his past. Claiming to be a distant cousin of the novelist Maxim Gorky, he found work as an art teacher in Boston, then New York, and undertook a program of rigorous study, schooling himself in the modern painters he most admired, especially Cezanne and Picasso." "By the 1940s, Gorky had developed a style that is seen as the link between European modernism and American abstract expressionism. His masterpieces influenced the great generations of American painters who came of age after World War II, even as Gorky faced a series of personal catastrophes: a studio fire that destroyed dozens of his paintings, a wasting battle with cancer, and a car accident that temporarily paralyzed his painting arm. Further demoralized by the dissolution of his seven-year marriage, Gorky hanged himself in 1948"--Jacket

Arshile Gorky by Melvin P Lader( Book )

7 editions published in 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Arshile Gorkly was an unabashedly ambitious artist, 'apprenticing' himself to a series of masters - most notably Cézanne and Picasso - in order to become, at last, the master of his own personal style. His transformation of traditions into an utterly untraditional approach in turn inspired the Abstract Expressionists, who achieved a fame that Gorky died too young to enjoy ... Dr. Melvin P. Lader chronicles the artist's life from his bittersweet youth in Armenia through his precocious development as an artist and teacher to that long, purposeful evolution of his mature style."--Publisher's description

Matthew Spender provides biographical details of Gorky's early years, while a selection of Gorky's personal letters further sheds an intimate light on the artist and his achievements

Arshile Gorky : a retrospective by Arshile Gorky( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arshile Gorky was one of the central figures in American art's shift toward abstraction during the first half of the twentieth century. Accompanying the first major retrospective of his work in almost thirty years, this book traces the evolution of Gorky's arresting visual style. Nearly two hundred paintings, drawings, sculptures, and prints from all phases of his career--an number of them never before published or exhibited--are beautifully reproduced, including a large figurative painting from 1927 known previously only through its preparatory studies. Throughout the volume, some of Gorky's best-known and most powerful paintings are paired with related pieces and meticulous preliminary studies, shedding new light on his artistic process. Illustrated essays incorporating recently discovered biographical information and photographs examine his experience of the Armenian Genocide, his collaboration with the Works Progress Administration, and his explorations of abstraction and Surrealism, providing important reassessments of his life and career. Admired by many of his contemporaries and hugely influential for subsequent generations of artists, Gorky created a complex and deeply moving body of work that encompasses styles ranging from Impressionism to Cubism, Surrealism, and the beginnings of Abstract Expressionism
Arshile Gorky: the man, the time, the idea by Harold Rosenberg( Book )

3 editions published between 1962 and 1980 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a good place to study Gorky. Much of what has been said of Gorky in recent books is not backed up by Rosenberg. This book did much to revive Gorky's reputation. The profile here is about his rapid development. The part played by his intellect is especially important: modern art& traditional work.rosenberg summarizes his values.allusion,parody,quotation were important to him. They separated him from many painters in NYC."--Amazon
