The art of Richard Diebenkorn by Jane Livingston( Book )

14 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Diebenkorn (1922-1993) quietly constructed a place for himself in the history of twentieth-century art with his singular vision and intense commitment to the idea and practice of both figuration and abstraction. In this book, which accompanies the Whitney Museum's 1997 Diebenkorn retrospective exhibition, the most comprehensive survey of his work ever held, Diebenkorn emerges as an artist who restored to late modernism the sense of the sublime that seemed to fade with each successive decade after World War II. In the 1940s and early 1950s, he forged an impressive abstract vocabulary - and then suddenly abandoned it in 1955 for a representational mode that encompassed still lifes, landscapes, figures, and interiors. Along with painters David Park and Elmer Bischoff, he established what has come to be known as the Bay Area Figurative School. Twelve years later, in 1967, Diebenkorn moved back into abstraction, embarking on the renowned Ocean Park series of paintings and drawings that he continued to develop until the end of his life

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

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 694 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

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

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 429 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
