A nest of ninnies by John Ashbery( Book )

38 editions published between 1969 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The denizens of Kelton, New York - a bedroom community some fifty miles from Manhattan - are a well-heeled bunch who spend an awful lot of time playing rummy. There is Alice, an unfulfilled cellist, and her complacent brother Marshall, who doesn't like his friends to confide in him. There are the bumbling and overindulged Fabia and Victor, another sibling duo, and their friend Irving, a meek mama's boy. Into their cloistered lives come Claire and Nadia Tosti, two sisters from Paris, whose take-charge tactics stir the winds of enterprise, romance, and change. Through them, Alice is led to a swarthy Italian who helps her orchestrate a successful restaurant business. Irving pairs up with Claire, finally winning freedom from his eccentric, cat-loving mother. Victor embraces Nadia and the antiques trade, while Fabia discovers a potential romance with Victor's French pen pal. Only Marshall finds himself eluded by love, a predicament that will lead him from the snug environs of Kelton to the crude energies of the Midwest. In bistros, galleries, bars, and theaters, the protagonists eat, drink, criticize each other, and debate the worlds of art, music, literature, life, and love

The crystal lithium by James Schuyler( Book )

7 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alex Katz paints Ada by Robert Storr( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For almost fifty years, the American artist Alex Katz (b. 1927) has painted a series of portraits of his wife, Ada. This beautifully illustrated book is the first to focus on these iconic paintings, which are unprecedented in their focus on a single figure over many years." "In this volume, leading scholars explore the allure of Ada as a subject and the art-historical importance of Katz's portraits, asking fascinating questions about Katz's methods and intentions: What do these paintings reveal and conceal about their subject? What does Katz do in the studio to convey such vitality on his canvases? How does Katz's work fit into the history of portraiture and the art movements of the 1960s and beyond? Acclaimed art critic and curator Robert Storr examines Ada's alluring persona, comparing her to other "goddesses" who have captivated centuries of portrait painters. James Schuyler recounts a day in Katz's studio, and the late British art critic Lawrence Alloway explores the role of repetition in the Ada portraits, which he views as a cycle of images with antecedents in Velazquez and Rembrandt." "Featuring the renowned series of Ada portraits, this book demonstrates the cumulative power and enduring delight of Alex Katz's achievement, as well as his devotion to his greatest muse."--Jacket
