Donald Judd by Donald Judd( Book )

34 editions published in 2004 in 3 languages and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning as a critic and painter, Donald Judd moved into three dimensions in the early 1960s, with box-like structures arranged on the gallery floor or mounted on the wall. Initially constructed by hand, his sculptures were later industrially manufactured in such materials as galvanised iron, steel, Plexiglas and plywood. His use of brightly hued lacquers, vibrant colours and polished metals ran counter to the public's understanding of what 'minimalist' sculpture should look like." "The authors explore the conflicts between previous critical interpretations of Judd and his own philosophical, political and moral understanding of his work. They also examine the importance of colour and new man-made materials in Judd's work. The inclusion of a section on Judd's own permanent installations at the remote town of Marfa, Texas, a full chronology and a major essay by the artist on his own use of colour, completes a comprehensive survey of this compelling artist."--Publisher's description

Cy Twombly : cycles and seasons by Cy Twombly( Book )

24 editions published in 2008 in 3 languages and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cy Twombly (b.1928) is one of the leading figures from the generation of American artists that also included Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol. Unlike them, he left America early in his career to live and work in Italy where he drew inspiration from European literature and classical culture. He swiftly built an international reputation with his uniquely expressive abstract paintings, works on paper and sculpture." "Accompanying a major, touring retrospective spanning over fifty years of Twombly's work, this book provides a long-needed critical overview of his career, focusing on his paintings, drawings and sculpture. There is also a rare and wide-ranging interview with the artist and a newly commissioned text by the artist Tacita Dean, as well as an illustrated chronology and extensive bibliography." "Combining the latest scholarship with numerous colour illustrations, this will be the most thorough examination of the life and work of this artist for years to come."--Jacket

Treasure palaces : great writers visit great museums by Maggie Fergusson( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this exuberant celebration of the worlds museums, great and small, revered writers like Ann Patchett, Julian Barnes, Ali Smith, and more tell us about their favorite museums, including the Lower East Side Tenement Museum in New York, the Musée Rodin in Paris, and the Prado in Madrid. These essays, collected from the pages of The Economists Intelligent Life magazine, reveal the special hold that some museums have over us all. Acclaimed novelist William Boyd visits the Leopold Museum in Vienna--a shrine to his favorite artist, Egon Schiele, whom Boyd first discovered on a postcard as a University student. In front of her favorite Rodins, Allison Pearson recalls a traumatic episode she suffered at the hands of a schoolteacher following a trip to the Musée in Paris. Neil Gaiman admires the fantastic world depicted in British outsider artist Richard Dadds "The Fairy Fellers Master-Stroke," a tiny painting that also decorated the foldout cover of a Queen album, housed in the Victorian room of Tate Britains Pre-Raphaelite collection. Ann Patchett fondly revisits Harvard Universitys Museum of Natural History--which she discovered at 19, while in the throes of summer romance with a biology student named Jack. Treasure Palaces is a treasure trove of wonders, a tribute to the diversity and power of the museums, the safe-keepers of our worlds most extraordinary artifacts, and an intimate look into the deeply personal reveries we fall into when before great art. --

Experience or interpretation : the dilemma of museums of modern art by Nicholas Serota( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How do we see art? How is it displayed? One hundred years ago, art was displayed in a way intended to educate. Galleries reflected the curator's view of history at the expense of differing viewpoints. Today, not only do museums and galleries celebrate these differences of expression, they also welcome the collaboration of living artists, both in displaying art and providing a 'home' for artists' work, promoting an active dialogue between the present and the past. In an age where culture is more voraciously consumed by a wider public than ever before, galleries and museums are no longer just repositories. They are sites of experience where the mind is often engaged as much as the eye." "This is the first coherent historical account of the changing attitudes to the way art is presented in the modern museum of art. Nicholas Serota examines the relationship between the artist, the public and the curator. He takes us into the artist's studio, itself a paradigm of display, and then on a knowledgeable and wide-ranging international tour of museums, galleries and installations. With authority and insight, he provides an expert view of the ways we can expect art to be displayed in the twenty-first century."--BOOK JACKET

Tracing Hirst's career from his emergence on the art scene in the Young British Artists movement to his present status as one of the most controversial and highly regarded artists of his generation, this volume offers a complete overview on his wide-ranging practice, which includes installation, painting, sculpture, and drawing and challenges the boundaries between art, science, and popular culture. The catalog gathers over one hundred works, combining historic oeuvres with more recent projects: from The Kingdom to The History of Pain, from Pharmacy to For the Love of God, to the spot, spin, and butterfly paintings. With an essay by Francesco Bonami, an interview with the artist by Nicholas Serota, director of the Tate Britain, and essays by the Qatari writer Sophia Al Maria and the Pakistani writer Mohsin Hamid, the volume offers an original point of view on Hirst's oeuvre, whose works have become collective icons of our civilization"--Amazon.com, viewed December 12, 2013
