Dada : Zurich, Berlin, Hannover, Cologne, New York, Paris by Leah Dickerman( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dada includes many of the key figures in the history of modernism, such as Hans Arp, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Hannah Hoch, John Heartfield, Francis Picabla, Kurt Schwitters, and Sophie Taeuber, and introduces artists who are less well known. This book explores the variety of art-making practices that emerged between 1916 and 1924 in the movement's primary centers: Zurich, Berlin, Hannover, Cologne, New York, and Paris. Six city essays by scholars of the movement; an illustrated chronology; more than forty artists' biographies; period photographs; and extensive plate sections document a provocative and influential artistic era." "This illustrated book accompanies Dada, the most comprehensive museum exhibition of Dada art ever mounted in the United States, on view in 2006 at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and The Museum of Modern Art, New York. The exhibition was on view at the Musee national d'art moderne-Centre Pompidou in Paris in 2005"--Jacket
Constantin Brancusi, 1876-1957 by Friedrich Teja Bach( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in French and English and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In twentieth-century sculpture, one name towers above all others: Romanian-born Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957). This book accompanies a major retrospective exhibition of Brancusi's sculpture, drawings, and photographs, organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. Profusely illustrated throughout, with photographs by the artist and images culled from a wide range of archival sources, it is the most definitive work yet published on this influential artist. The authors provide a detailed reassessment of Brancusi's work, incorporating and extending the profound revisions in scholarship that have been taking place since the last major retrospective in 1969-70
Balthus by Sabine Rewald( Book )

5 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a thorough overview of the work of Balthus (b. 1908), the elusive painter whose fascinating images of young women were first greatly admired by the Surrealists, and have remained so today. This controversial artist is exceedingly reclusive, and until the last decade rarely gave interviews or allowed himself to be photographed. As a result, both his life and his work have been the subject of much intrigue and speculation. Now, his eldest son, Stanislas
Alexander Calder : the Paris years, 1926-1933 by Alexander Calder( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alexander Calder: The Paris Years, 1926-1933 follows Calder's progression from painter to sculptor in Paris in the 1920s and early 1930s - a unique and critically important period of artistic, cultural, social, and political dialogue between the United States and Paris."--Sponsor's statement
Brassaï : the monograph by Brassaï( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here are Brassai's iconic scenes of nocturnal Paris with its prostitutes and thugs, its night workers, cafes, dance halls, and theaters; here are the fog-shrouded streets, monuments, and bridges; and here is the literary and artistic elite of the Parisian avant-garde, whom Brassai counted among his friends. Alongside these images, and providing a deeper understanding of his working method, are many previously unpublished contact prints and variations of familiar shots taken from a different angle, differently framed, or as part of a sequence that constitutes a veritable short story on film. Beyond these, there are examples of Brassai's nude studies and magnifications of commonplace objects, the engraved photographic plates that he called "transmutations," his drawings and sculpted pebbles, the graffiti he found so fascinating - indeed, everything to which he turned his imaginative mind throughout a long, productive life." "With the close cooperation of Mme. Gilberte Brassai, the artist's widow, and with the support of Jean-Jacques Aillagon, president of the Centre Pomidou, and of Werner Spies, director of the Musee National d'Art Moderne in Paris, Alain Sayag and Annick Lionel-Marie have succeeded in producing the definitive summary of this important oeuvre. As an extra dimension, the book includes penetrating excerpts from the writings of Brassai himself and of his friends and admirers Henry Miller, Jacques Prevert, and Roger Grenier; an interview with Gilberte Brassai and a biography compiled by her; and an extensive bibliography and list of exhibitions."--Jacket
Formless : a user's guide by Yve-Alain Bois( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yve-Alain Bois and Rosalind E. Krauss convincingly introduce a new constellation of concepts to our understanding of avant-garde and modernist art practices. In Formless: A User's Guide, Bois and Krauss present a rich and compelling panorama of the formless. They chart its persistence within a history of modernism that has always repressed it in the interest of privileging formal mastery, and they assess its destiny within current artistic production

Max Beckmann by Max Beckmann( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Max Beckmann (1884-1950) is widely acknowledged as one of Germany's leading painters of the twentieth century. His work has affinities with Expressionism and, in the 1920, with Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity)." "This collaboration, an association between the Pompidou Centre, Tate Modern and The Museum of Modern Art, marks the first occasion since the 1960s that Paris, London and New York have hosted comprehensive surveys dedicated to Beckmann's work. This book, shared between Tate Modern and The Museum of Modern Art, is the first comprehensive English-language catalogue on the artist published since Beckmann's centenary retrospective in 1984. It contains new research by German, American and British scholars, using documentary material published over the past decade. There are, too, several distinctive essays by practicing artists, for whom Beckmann's contribution to art has special significance."--Jacket
Kandinsky by Wassily Kandinsky( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in French and English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents abstract Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944). It reproduces scores of recently rediscovered paintings that had languished for decades in Soviet museums and in private collections. The author provides new details on Kandinsky's life and art, discussing his little-known experimental stage plays which strove for a synthesis of all the arts, and his friendships with Paul Klee, Arnold Schonberg and composer Thomas von Hartmann, who introduced the artist to Sufism, the mystical offshoot of Islam. Most chapters include excerpts from Kandinsky's newspaper articles, essays and unpublished letters, creating the impression of a tolerant nonconformist who saw art as inseparably linked with the higher laws of the cosmos. The reproductions provide an exciting glimpse of Kandinsky's leap into abstraction after his early absorption of folk and religious art, fauvism and neo-impressionism
Joan Miró, 1917-1934 by Joan Miró( Book )

14 editions published in 2004 in French and English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the English-language edition of an exhibition only at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, March-June 2004. Memorable exhibitions at the Grand Palais in 1974 and in Barcelona and New York in 1993 sought to embrace the entirely of an oeuvre that developed across more than sixty years, but the intention here is to scrutinize and document the most important years of Miro's art, his self-questioning formation and his first and finest masterpieces."--Jacket

Simón del Desierto by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in Spanish and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tells the story of an early Christian ascetic -- modeled on Saint Simon Stylites -- who has lived atop a pillar, surrounded by a barren landscape, for six years, six months, and six days to prove his devotion to God. But the Devil, in the figure of the beautiful Silvia Pinal, huddles below, trying to tempt him down. A skeptic's vision of religious conviction, Luis Buñuel's short and sweet satire is one of his most renowned works of surrealism." -- Container
