Irving Penn : beyond beauty by Irving Penn( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Famous for his fashion portraits and experimentation with still life images, Irving Penn (1917-2009) ranks as one of the foremost photographers of the 20th century. In an illustrious career that spanned nearly 70 years, Penn was a master of both black-and-white and color photography, and his revival of platinum printing in the 1960s and 1970s was a catalyst for significant change in the art world. Drawing from the extensive holdings of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, including a major gift from The Irving Penn Foundation, this magnificent catalogue compiles 161 of Penn's iconic images, including a number of unpublished works. Beautifully designed and illustrated, this book accompanies the first retrospective exhibition of Penn's work in nearly 20 years and features photographs from all stages of his career, including street scenes from the late 1930s, celebrity portraits, Parisian fashion photographs, and more private studio images. Merry A. Foresta's captivating essay introduces this photographer to a younger generation and delves into Penn's use of photography to respond to social and cultural change, speaking to the depths of human existence

The artistic journey of Yasuo Kuniyoshi by Tom Wolf( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Artistic Journey of Yasuo Kuniyoshi is a long-overdue study of this complex artist's career. Born in Japan, Yasuo Kuniyoshi (1889-1953) arrived in the United States as a teenager and studied art in New York. Although thoroughly integrated into American life, immigration laws prevented him from becoming an American citizen. The early success he achieved with his distinctive modern figural works developed into a compelling and powerful late style. This new survey, the first full retrospective of his works since the Whitney Show of 1948, features seventy of Kuniyoshi's best paintings and drawings, chosen from leading public and private collections in America and Japan. Tom Wolf is professor of art history, Bard College, New York, and the leading Kuniyoshi scholar."--

Renwick Invitational 2016 : visions and revisions by Renwick Invitational (Exhibition)( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the seventh instalment of the biennial Renwick Invitational, this striking volume, presents the work of Steven Young Lee, Kristen Morgin, Jennifer Trask, and Norwood Viviano. The four selected artists work in a remarkable variety of media including porcelain, raw clay, bone, gold, glass, metal, found objects and mineral pigments. Their visual sensibilities draw on sources ranging from traditional Asian pottery to vintage Americana, and from the romance of the Victorian Era to the algorhythmic precision of the computer. Together, they engage a current fascination in American craft with change, transformation, ruin, and reinvention.00Exhibition: Smithsonian American Art Museum, Renwick Gallery, Washington, USA (09.09.2016 - 16.01.2017)

Childe Hassam, American impressionist by H. Barbara Weinberg( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Childe Hassam (American, 1859-1935) was a pioneer of American Impressionism and perhaps its most devoted, prolific, and successful practitioner. He caught the spirit of the new painting in Paris in the late 1880s, while most of his compatriots were still ignoring it. He contributed to the full flowering of American Impressionism in the United States in the 1890s and rode the great wave of enthusiasm for the style to fame and fortune. This volume accompanies a major exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum, the first retrospective presentation of Hassam's work in a museum since 1972. Essays by H. Barbara Weinberg and other experts reconsider his formative period in Boston and student years in Paris, analyze his rural and urban scenes in terms of their Impressionist formal values as well as measured against his determination to portray modern life, and explore other topics to shed new light on the artist's achievements. An unprecedented lifetime exhibition record, a chronology of Hassam's life, and a checklist of works in the exhibition are also included. -- Metropolitan Museum of Art website

William Christenberry by William Christenberry( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"His documentation of vernacular architecture, country churches and graveyards, signage, and landscape captures moments of quiet beauty in a sometimes mythic terrain that, with its worn iconography and buildings turned ramshackle, evokes the form and power of the passage of time. Since relocating to Washington, D.C., in 1968, Christenberry has dutifully returned home to photograph and consider the same locations annually - the green barn, the palmist building, the Bar-B-Q Inn, among others - fulfilling a personal ritual and documenting the physical changes wrought by the passing of a year. More than half the work in this comprehensive publication is previously unpublished."--Jacket
Curious Worlds( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Curious Worlds: The Art & Imagination of David Beck pulls back the curtain on the singular artist David Beck: a master sculptor, carver, and miniature architect who works in a fantastical genre all his own, creating intricate worlds that are alive with magical and brilliant observations. His intricate, kinetic sculptures resemble objects within a dream - fanciful buildings and hollow animals containing detailed scenes rendered on a tiny scale. ... This documentary captures the artist at work in his studio and reflecting on his art. It is an intimate insight into what it takes to create a masterwork: extraordinary ideas, an almost eerie ability to focus on the work, and patience. Beck submits to the camera invasive scrutiny with a wit and charm that is both inviting and ambivalent. Ultimately, he comes across as the smartest, most creative artist you e never heard of"--Website
June Schwarcz : invention & variation by Bernard N Jazzar( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than sixty years, June Schwarcz (1918–2015) advanced the art of enameling—fusing glass to metal through a high-temperature firing process—while creating works that combine rich textures and luminous color. Her technical experiments earned her national awards and generations of followers. June Schwarcz: Invention & Variation celebrates this pioneering artist with fifty-nine full-color plates representing a wide selection of her work, from traditional vessels and boxes to wall-mounted panels and modernist sculpture. An essay by Bernard N. Jazzar and Harold B. Nelson explores her groundbreaking methods and varied sources—including Japanese calligraphy, ancient Peruvian textiles, European painting and sculpture, Islamic architecture, and high fashion."--Publisher's description
