Issued in conjunction with an exhibition held at Houston's Museum of Fine Arts in 1987, and in other museums, this volume presents some 200 paintings and sculptures by 30 contemporary Hispanic artists living and working in the United States. Beginning with a piece on what it means to be Hispanic and what in particular it means to be a Hispanic artist, the volume includes interpretive essays defining and illuminating the challenging variety of contemporary Hispanic art, ranging from folk-inspired religious carvings to politically-motivated satirical work, modernist abstraction, ethnically-infected Neo-Surrealism, and impassioned New Imagism. The authors also discuss the origins of Hispanic art and the influences that have shaped it, and provide biographical sketches of the artists. ISBN 0-89659-688-5: $45.00 (For use only in the library)

L'amour fou : photography & surrealism by Rosalind E Krauss( Book )

21 editions published in 1985 in 3 languages and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much has been written about Surrealist painting and sculpture, but most of the erotic, disorienting, and exquisite Surrealist photographs of Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Andre Breton, Brassai, Salvador Dali, Andre Kertesz, and Hans Bellmer have remained all but unknown--until now. Traditional criticism has viewed Surrealist photography as a pale imitation of authentic Surrealist work. The assumption has been that photography, a "realistic" medium, is fundamentally incompatible with a cause devoted to the wildly subjective, the world of dreams, and the unconscious. As a consequence, Surrealist photography, a major body of twentieth-century art, has remained largely unexplored. L'Amour fou is the first book to study the crucial role photography did in fact play in the Surrealist movement. It shows how photographers enlisted into the service of "subjective" Surrealism their medium's very claim to "objective" reality. Of greatest interest, of course, is the book's abundant reproductions of the fantastic and distorted photographic creations that must be acknowledged as an important part of the Surrealist oeuvre

The New York School : photographs, 1936-1963 by Jane Livingston( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and German and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New York School of Photography refers to a loosely defined group of photographers who lived and worked in New York City from the late 1930s to the early 1960s. In this volume, author Jane Livingston, former chief curator of the Corcoran Gallery of Art, defines this seminal episode in American photography by examining sixteen photographers and their influences, subjects, and stylistic earmarks. Included are Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Alexey Brodovitch, Ted Croner, Bruce Davidson, Don Donaghy, Louis Faurer, Robert Frank, Sid Grossman, William Klein, Saul Leiter, Leon Levinstein, Helen Levitt, Lisette Model, David Vestal, and Weegee. Many of these photographers worked for the magazines of the day but stretched the boundaries of their medium in their personal work as street photographers. Their subject was most often New York itself: the random choreography of the city's sidewalks, the crush of bodies on Coney Island's beaches, the glow of street lights, and the glare of Times Square. To some degree they all assimilated or transformed the photographic concerns of Lewis Hine, Walker Evans, and Henri Cartier-Bresson, whose positions set the stage for the emergence of the New York School. Many of them identified with the look and values embodied in film noir. In The New York School, each photographer's work is represented in a portfolio of approximately twelve images printed on one of four kinds of paper; varying shades and tones among the portfolios are achieved by the use of different duotone inks. Through an electrifying selection of both classic and rediscovered photographs and an irresistibly engaging text full of quotes from the photographers themselves, Jane Livingston shows the distinctive stylistic nature, of this newly understood group

Zelda, an illustrated life : the private world of Zelda Fitzgerald by Zelda Fitzgerald( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bruce Nauman : work from 1965 to 1972 by Bruce Nauman( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Diebenkorn : figurative works on paper by Richard Diebenkorn( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The work of Richard Diebenkorn (1922-1993) alternates between his two distinct and mutually masterful modes: the figurative and the abstract. Collected here for the first time are rarely seen and largely unpublished figurative drawings and paintings on paper which represent a period of exploration and innovation." "Dating from roughly the mid-nineteen fifties to the late sixties, these fully developed and important works do more than just illuminate Diebenkorn's mastery of the representational. Preceding, as they do, his famed Ocean Park era, they also highlight the influence of his figurative gifts on his wellknown abstract work." "Published in conjunction with John Berggruen Gallery, who first mounted a major exhibition of these pieces, this revealing collection features forty-two drawings, paintings, and gouaches, accompanied by an introduction by John McEnroe and essays by Barnaby Conrad III and Jane Livingston. Beautifully reproduced on the page, Richard Diebenkorn: Figurative Works on Paper fills a key gap in the literature of this premier American artist."--Jacket

Hospice : a photographic inquiry by Hospice( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hospice is health care that provides for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of dying patients; its goal is not to cure, but to ease the patient's passage out of life. However, many Americans are unaware of the choices hospice offers. In an effort to foster a broader understanding of hospice, the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the National Hospice Foundation created this remarkable book. They commissioned a series of visual essays from five well-known photographers - challenging each of them to express through his or her art the essence of hospice care. The resulting book is an extraordinary document: it draws the reader inside the full intensity and revelation of the hospice experience. Marilyn Webb's opening essay describes the little-known history of hospice and the increasingly humane attitude toward dying that is now emerging in America. Jane Livingston compares hospice and the art of photography, and Philip Brookman interviews the five artists. A detailed bibliography assists readers seeking hospice resources. But it is the photographers who guide us into the heart of the hospice world. Here are Nan Goldin's penetrating chronicle of patients in New York hospice care; Jack Radcliffe's frank look at the bond between patients and caregivers; luminous meditations on the experiences of hospice patients by Sally Mann; composite images by Kathy Vargas that evoke loss and remembrance; and Jim Goldberg's poignant examination of his own father's death. Woven through these portfolios are the words of the patients, the families, and the care providers. For those who seek to understand hospice, this book creates an unforgettable portrayal; for those already a part of that world, it is a moving testament
Richard Diebenkorn : the catalogue raisonné by Richard Diebenkorn( Book )

13 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The celebrated American artist Richard Diebenkorn (1922-1993) was a singular figure in postwar American art. Early in his career, he created abstract paintings that combined landscape influence, aerial perspective, and a deeply personal calligraphic language. Then, in late 1955, he began working in a representational mode (landscapes, figure studies, and still lifes) and was associated with the Bay Area figurative movement. Diebenkorn later abandoned figurative references in the 1960s and embarked on monumental abstract, geometrical compositions, including his celebrated Ocean Park works. This four-volume catalogue raisonné is the definitive resource on Diebenkorn's unique works, including his paintings, works on paper, and three-dimensional objects. The first volume gives an overview of the artist's career, featuring essays by noted scholars John Elderfield, Ruth E. Fine, Jane Livingston, Steven Nash, and Gerald Nordland, as well as an illustrated chronology, list of exhibitions, bibliography, and selection of studio notes. The second volume spans his student and early abstract works; the third volume features his representational works during the Berkeley period; and the fourth volume covers his later periods, as well as his drawings and sketchbooks. Many of the more than five thousand works illustrated in this catalogue are being published for the first time, and with new color photography that showcases his work like never before
Frame : a retrospective by Mark Cohen( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark Cohen is the quintessential street photographer, using an aggressive approach in which he closes in on strangers with a camera and flash before they re aware of being photographed. His stark images made on the streets of Wilkes-Barre and other working-class Pennsylvania towns capture moments, gestures, and emotions that, because they might be invisible to others sensibilities, testify to Cohen s innately superior perception, his gift of precise and ingenious visual ordering. His work received early recognition, with a one-person show at the Museum of Modern Art in 1973 when he was just thirty, and it has garnered critical acclaim ever since. Today, Cohen s work is held in over thirty prominent international collections, ranging from the Metropolitan Museum in New York City to the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. Frame is the first retrospective of Mark Cohen s career. It presents over two hundred and fifty images, about one hundred of which have never been published, and includes work from Spain, Ireland, England, Italy, and Mexico, as well as America. The book showcases both the black-and-white photography for which Cohen is best known and his occasional forays into color
