Aaron Douglas : African American modernist by Aaron Douglas( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In paintings, murals, and book illustrations, Aaron Douglas (1899-1979) produced the most powerful visual legacy of the Harlem Renaissance, prompting the philosopher and writer Alain Locke to dub him the "father of Black American art." Douglas's role, as well as that of the Harlem Renaissance in general, in the evolution of American modernism deserves close scholarly attention - attention it finally receives in this illustrated book on his life and work. Its authors argue that Douglas's work opened doors for African American artists in Harlem and beyond, and that it invited a dialogue with modernism that put African American life, labor, and freedom, along with African traditions and motifs, at its center. New information emerges from these pages, reflecting the rich interchange between the visual arts, music, dance, literature, and politics that shaped Douglas's work and also defined the Harlem Renaissance."--Jacket
Japanese ghosts & demons : art of the supernatural( Book )

4 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japan has perhaps the most lively and richly developed tradition of supernatural lore of any civilization. It is comprised of some of the most relentlessly fearsome goblins, demons, metamorphosed animals and ghosts ever known to man. Japanese poets, actors, dancers, and artists have all delighted in portraying these monsters, often with a playfulness and humor that mitigates the demons' more ferocious qualities, but also with a bold, dramatic fervor designed to impress upon their audiences the lessons of folklore. For, like our own mythological and fairy-tale characters, Japan's supernatural inhabitants suggest much about the morals of the Japanese people and of their efforts to understand the mysteries of the world. This is the first book devoted to the study of the supernatural world and its representation in Japanese art. From the 17th to the 19th centuries many of Japan's most brilliant artists, including Hiroshige, Hokusai, Yoshitoshi, and Zeshin, allowed their imaginations free rein to present these mysteries in a variety of media, including paintings, woodblock prints, screens, netsuke and inrō sculptures, and fans. The 49 color plates and 75 black and white illustrations presented here show a stunning array of Japan's most fiendish figures. Each of the ten chapters focuses on one of the most important themes in Japanese lore, discussing its anthropological meaning and literary and artistic interpretations. -- from back cover

Robert Motherwell on paper : drawings, prints, collages by Robert Motherwell( Book )

Reproduced in color and in a generous format are more than a hundred of the artist's finest works on paper. The book is published to accompany an exhibition at the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery at Columbia University - an exhibition that was conceived and developed in discussions with the artist during the final year of his life.

The prints of Roger Shimomura : a catalogue raisonné, 1968-2005 by Emily Stamey( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This catalogue raisonne begins with Roger Shimomura's first Andy Warhol-inspired screen prints, made while a graduate student in the late 1960s, and ends with his 2005 suite Mistaken Identities, published by the Lawrence Lithography Workshop. Featuring color reproductions of all the artist's extant prints to date, along with an introductory essay and artist's notes, this is the first publication to systematically examine a specific body of work within Shimomura's larger oeuvre. In his prints, as in his paintings and theatre pieces, Shimomura employs a vibrant and provocative stylistic combination of twentieth-century American Pop art and traditional eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Japanese woodblock prints. In his work one finds a personal iconography of popular images and ordinary objects that the artist uses to explore both his own Japanese American identity and the complexities of contemporary American culture."--Jacket

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Comprised of some three hundred objects, the collection of Asian textiles in the Spencer Museum of Art at the University of Kansas has remained a hidden treasure since its inception nearly a century ago. This small but important collection, which includes textiles from East, South, and Central Asia dating from the fifteenth through the twentieth centuries, displays remarkable geographical breadth, great diversity of technique, and a broad range of functions. With highlights including late Persian textiles, Indian embroideries, Kashmir shawls, Chinese court costume, and Japanese folk garments, the Spencer's Asian textiles are rich in history and design, offering a wealth of information and beauty for both the collector and the art lover alike. The first comprehensive publication of the collection, this volume provides an overview of the textile history of four principal regions as well as detailed discussions of individual pieces, bringing these fascinating objects to life in the context of their traditions and times." "Flowers, Dragons, & Pine Trees includes a full catalogue of the collection, glossary, and five maps. This comprehensive volume brings the hidden treasures of the collection to light with beautiful illustrations, compelling history, and new viewpoints on the rich and ancient textile traditions of Asia."--Jacket
A carved Loango tusk : local images and global connections by John M Janzen( Book )

"This volume features a late 19th century carved ivory elephant tusk from the Loango coast of Equatorial Africa given to the University of Kansas in 2004 by Susan and Wolfgang Hamburger of St. Joseph, Missouri. The volume incorporates the papers of a 2005 mini-conference held at the University of Kansas to review the intertwined stories of the ivory's original production, context, and use, as well as its century as a Hamburger family holding. Scholars from the University of Kansas and beyond illuminate the cultural, economic, and political history of Western Equitorial Africa and the manner in which that history, the region, its peoples and cultures have been received in Europe and in North America."--Publisher's description
