The "wild beasts" : Fauvism and its affinities by John Elderfield( Book )

Diane Arbus : revelations by Diane Arbus( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and German and held by 1,107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book reproduces two hundred full-page duotones of Diane Arbus photographs spanning her entire career, many of them never before seen. It also includes an essay, "The Question of Belief," by Sandra S. Phillips, senior curator of photography at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and "In the Darkroom," a discussion of Arbus's printing techniques by Neil Selkirk, the only person authorized to print her photographs since her death. A 104-page Chronology by Elizabeth Sussman, guest curator of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art show, and Doon Arbus, the artist's eldest daughter, illustrated by more than three hundred additional images and composed mainly of previously unpublished excerpts from the artist's letters, notebooks, and other writings, amounts to a kind of autobiography. An Afterword by Doon Arbus precedes biographical entries on the photographer's friends and colleagues by Jeff I. Rosenheim, associate curator of photographs at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. These texts help illuminate the meaning of Diane Arbus's controversial and astonishing vision."--Jacket

"Artists continued to discover and explore the artistic and practical applications of photography at the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth centuries.

Picasso and American art by Michael C FitzGerald( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on extensive research, Michael FitzGerald's text provides valuable new information on the fundamental role that Picasso played in the development of modern American art - both through his friendships with individual artists and through the dissemination of his evolving work. This book also documents, for the first time, the accessibility of Picasso's work in the United States between 1910 and 1957 in exhibitions, collections, and publications through a comprehensive chronology."--BOOK JACKET

An uncertain grace by Sebastio Salgado( Book )

8 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From a Brazilian mine where 50,000 mud-covered men haul heavy bags of dirt up and down slippery ladders in search of a stray nugget of gold, to a former lake in western Africa now swallowed by the encroaching desert, where emaciated, starving people walk over its surface of sand, photographer Sebastião Salgado explores the live of the planet's often ignored people with a critical eye and an empathetic heart
Marc Chagall by Marc Chagall( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marc Chagall is one of the twentieth century's favorite artists, known and admired for his rich palette, his inventive approach, his accessible subjects, and the rich traditions behind his work. Combining fantasy, spirituality, and nostalgia with a distinctive modern painting style, Chagall's canvases are infused with a joyous, dreamlike simplicity. Even as styles shifted from Cubism to Suprematism to Surrealism, his work remained individual and idiosyncratic-sometimes harming his art world reputation, but never his popular appeal. Lavishly illustrated with more than one hundred and fifty color reproductions, Marc Chagall is the first full-scale survey of the artist's work in nearly twenty years. An introductory essay by exhibition curator Jean-Michel Foray contextualizes the Russian-born artist's work, while a heavily illustrated chronology of Chagall's life assembled by Meret Meyer Graber and Jakov Bruk details the many stages of his career. The work is organized into four sections, each with an introduction by Foray, to help make sense of the artist's prodigious oeuvre. This catalogue is published on the occasion of a major retrospective conceived by Reunion des Musees Nationaux, Paris, with the Musee National Message Biblique Marc Chagall, Nice, and co-organized with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
Frida Kahlo by Frida Kahlo( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frida Kahlo's paintings and person illustrate the inevitable intertwining of freedom and pain, embodying the heroic reclamation of self and the repudiation of social repression through the art-making process. She is a woman both of her time and ours. Born in 1907, on the cusp of a new century, she was a radical in imagining and then asserting a peculiarly adventuresome artistic, sexual, and political identity. In her paintings she blurred the realms of saints and shamans as well as the cosmological and the technological, often permitting shockingly personal depictions of her physical and psychological pain to bleed into the iconography of Mexico's Aztec, colonial, and revolutionary history. This overturning of traditional approaches to thinking, seeing, and fantasizing is clear in the fearless self-portraits Kahlo constructed as well as in the life she lived." "This richly illustrated catalogue features more than 80 of Kahlo's works, including the hauntingly seductive and often brutal self-portraits, as well as a selection of key portraits and still-lifes that span the years of her career, up to her death in 1954, New critical essays by Elizabeth Carpenter, Hayden Herrera, and Victor Zamudio-Taylor examine Kahlo's position within art history and visual culture. Also reproduced are more than 100 photographs that belonged to Kahlo and her husband, renowned Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, some taken by eminent photographers of the period such as Lola Alvarez Bravo, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Gisele Freund, Tina Modotti, and Nickolas Muray. More personal snapshots show Kahlo with family and friends, among them luminaries Andre Breton and Leon Trotsky, and many carry graphic inscriptions and interventions by the artist. An illustrated timeline, bibliography, and exhibition history offer added context."--Jacket

Sol LeWitt : a retrospective by Sol LeWitt( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, the first retrospective of LeWitt's work in more than twenty years, fosters a deeper understanding of the artist's career and its significance to American art and thought." "Including essays by a number of curators and art historians, this volume charts the evolution of LeWitt's art from his work in Conceptualism during the early 1960s through his turn toward a more lyrical and sensual form of abstraction round 1980. With over 450 images, the book provides a visual survey of LeWitt's oeuvre from 1960 to the present, including wall drawings, three-dimensional structures, works on paper and photographs."--Jacket
