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

7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 692 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

Lee Miller, photographer by Jane Livingston( Book )

15 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In addition to tracing Zelda Fitzgerald's personal history, this is the first book to focus extensively on her creative achievement, her painting in particular, on which she concentrated in the last fourteen years of her life. Although many of her works were lost and others were burned after her death by a jealous sister, Zelda's daughter, Scottie, saved more than 100. That legacy forms the basis of this book, which reproduces 80 of her best paintings. They range over a variety of themes: figures, landscapes, cityscapes, flower still lifes, and biblical tableaux. In addition, there are vivid fairy-tale paintings made for Scottie, and a group of intricate and beautiful paper-doll constructions created for her grandson late in her life. Also dating from that last decade, before her tragic death at the age of forty-eight in a hospital fire in North Carolina, is a group of fanciful cityscapes that portray her travels with Scott twenty years earlier
Bruce Nauman : work from 1965 to 1972 by Bruce Nauman( Book )

11 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 435 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

Frame : a retrospective by Mark Cohen( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 138 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
