Constantin Brancusi, 1876-1957 by Friedrich Teja Bach( Book )

27 editions published in 1995 in English and French and held by 928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In twentieth-century sculpture, one name towers above all others: Romanian-born Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957). This book accompanies a major retrospective exhibition of Brancusi's sculpture, drawings, and photographs, organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. Profusely illustrated throughout, with photographs by the artist and images culled from a wide range of archival sources, it is the most definitive work yet published on this influential artist. The authors provide a detailed reassessment of Brancusi's work, incorporating and extending the profound revisions in scholarship that have been taking place since the last major retrospective in 1969-70
The Russian avant-garde book, 1910-1934 by Margit Rowell( Book )

25 editions published in 2002 in English and German and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus of this study is the book format as produced by Russian avant-garde artists and poets from 1910 to 1934. This period saw a remarkable proliferation of books in which artists were involved, and such books played a fundamental role in the aesthetic thinking of the day. Radical new forms appearing in both painting and poetry in the teens, offered by a close-knit community of artists and poets, provided the impetus

Sigmar Polke : works on paper 1963-1974 by Margit Rowell( Book )

20 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sigmar Polke's thirty-five-year career, during which he has produced a vast range of work in all mediums, has earned him a reputation as one of the most significant artists of his generation. Born in 1941, he began his creative output around 1963 in Dusseldorf during a time of enormous social, cultural, and artistic changes in Germany and elsewhere. Few of his works demonstrate more vividly his imagination, sardonic wit, and subversive approach than the drawings, watercolors, and gouaches produced during the 1960s and early 1970s. Embedded in these images are incisive and parodic commentaries on consumer society, the postwar political scene in Germany, and classic artistic conventions." "This book is published to accompany the first American museum exhibition of Polke's drawings from this period, shown at The Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1999. More than 300 works are illustrated, virtually all of them in color. They include small sketches in ballpoint and felt-tipped pen, larger sheets in watercolor and gouache, and still others stamped with a dot screen process."--Jacket
Cotton puffs, Q-tips, smoke and mirrors : the drawings of Ed Ruscha by Margit Rowell( Book )

15 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gunpowder, tobacco, coffee, rose petals, lettuce and blood are just a few of the unorthodox materials used by California-based artist Ed Ruscha, whose work is featured in this sumptuously produced monograph of drawings. Produced in conjunction with a career retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art, this catalog features over 200 reproductions of the artist's sly and meticulously rendered drawings of stock phrases from pop culture (e.g. "Hollywood Calif," "Babycakes," "20th Century Fox"). The drawings are accompanied by two rather disjointed essays by exhibit curator Rowell and MoCA LA curator Butler. Rowell's essay focuses on the artist's working process, explaining that one reason Ruscha drew with gunpowder was because it was an easier medium to manipulate than graphite. She also points out some salient links between the artist's drawings and his interest in photography. Butler takes a more conceptual approach, examining the content of Ruscha's drawings and his working materials through a theoretical and thematic lens. While both essays offer welcome insights into the work of a highly mercurial artist, Rowell's reliance on stiff art historical jargon and Butler's disorganized presentation make for dense reading. Part of their difficulty may be that the drawings themselves, with their sparklingly light irony and deft, masterly touch, have strange, otherworldly resonances that are difficult to pin down with words. Ultimately, it's the strength of the work itself that makes this book a must-have for any Ruscha fan."--Publisher's Weekly review
