Modigliani : beyond the myth by Ont.) Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) is one of the best known - and most misunderstood - artists of the twentieth century. His incisive portraits, erotically charged nudes, elegant drawings of caryatids, and primitivistic sculpture have been admired for decades. Modigliani's work, however, has typically been examined in the limited context of his so-called bohemian, anti-intellectual lifestyle. This book revises this approach toward Modigliani's art, presenting a revisionist examination of the unique historical, social, religious, and cultural significance of his oeuvre." "Modigliani: Beyond the Myth looks at the artist and his art from a variety of important perspectives: his proud heritage as a Sephardic Jew, whose spirituality embraced non-Western, classical, and Christian iconography while retaining its own ethnic identity; his critical engagement and melding of tribal and ethnographic art with Judaism in his portraiture; the representation of the female nude in his works from a feminist cultural perspective; the remarkable reception of his work in Italy after his death, and the failure of traditional art history to account for or analyze these important aspects of his life and work."--Jacket
Golem! Danger, deliverance, and art by Emily D Bilski( )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Action/abstraction : Pollock, de Kooning, and American art, 1940-1976 by Norman L Kleeblatt( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The abstract paintings of Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Barnett Newman, Lee Krasner, Clyfford Still, Helen Frankenthaler, and others revolutionized the art world in the 1940s and 1950s and continue to inspire passionate arguments to this day. What were these artists trying to achieve? Who were the critical voices of the time that rallied public interest in Abstract Expressionism and sparked rancorous debate?" "Drawing on recent critical, historical, and biographical work, this lavishly illustrated book offers a sharp new focus on a pivotal art movement. It also presents an extensive commentary on the two most influential critics of postwar American art - Clement Greenberg and Harold Rosenberg - whose powerful views shaped perceptions of Abstract Expressionism and other contemporary art movements. In one essay, Norman L. Kleeblatt traces the influence of Abstract Expressionism into the mid-1970s and examines its connection to subsequent art styles. Other essays range from the literary and intellectual culture of New York during that period and an analysis of sculpture and representation to a discussion of Jewish issues in relation to postwar American Art. In addition, the book features a magisterial essay by eminent critic Irving Sandler and a copiously illustrated cultural timeline by Maurice Berger."--Jacket
The Dreyfus affair : art, truth, and justice by Norman L Kleeblatt( Book )

8 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dreyfus Affair engaged the minds and passions of artists and intellectuals as few other political scandals ever have. In France at the turn of the century every important issue, truth, justice, honor, faith, and national pride, was tied to the question of Dreyfus' guilt or innocence and the manner in which he had been 'tried'. This book documents an exhibition at the Jewish Museum in New York City to provide a visual record of responses to the Affair. -- Publisher description
Common man, mythic vision : the paintings of Ben Shahn by Susan Chevlowe( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ben Shahn (1898-1969) has long been renowned for his Social Realist paintings of Depression-era America. Equally striking, however, are Shahn's extraordinary later works, which reveal a more introspective style as well as the evolution of a new allegorical and mythical pictorial language. This book combines beautiful reproductions of Shahn's art with essays by leading experts on his life and career to present a survey of his powerful and engaging mature style. The volume is published in conjunction with a major traveling exhibition organized by The Jewish Museum, New York, to commemorate the centenary of Shahn's birth
Eva Hesse : sculpture by Elisabeth Sussman( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of sculptor Eva Hesse (1936-1970), one of the greatest American artists of the 1960s, continues to inspire and to endure in large part because of its deeply emotional and evocative qualities. Her latex and fiberglass sculptures in particular have a resonance that transcends the boundaries of minimalist art in which she had her roots. Hesse's breakthrough solo exhibition - Chain Polymers at the Fischbach Gallery in New York in 1968 - was a turning point in postwar American art. "Eva Hesse: Sculpture" focuses on the artist's large-scale sculptures in latex and fiberglass and provides a rare opportunity to look at Hesse's artistic achievement within the historical context of her life in never-before-seen family diaries and photographs. Essays consider Hesse's art from a variety of angles: Elisabeth Sussman discusses the sculptures shown in the 1968 solo exhibition; Fred Wasserman delves into the Hesse family's life in Nazi Germany and in the German Jewish community in New York in the 1940s; Yve-Alain Bois examines Hesse's works within the context of the art and aesthetic theories of the 1960s; and Mark Godfrey analyses the importance of Hesse's celebrated hanging sculptures of 1969-70. In addition to colour reproductions of the artist's sculpture, the book features a copiously illustrated chronology of the artist's life

A century of ambivalence : the Jews of Russia and the Soviet Union, 1881 to the present by Zvi Y Gitelman( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Empire contained the largest Jewish community in the world, numbering about five million people. Today, the Jewish population of the former Soviet Union has dwindled to half a million, but remains probably the world's third largest Jewish community. In the intervening century the Jews of that area have been at the center of some of the most dramatic events of modern history-two world wars, revolutions, pogroms, political liberation, repression, and the collapse of the USSR. They have gone through tumultuous upward and downward economic and social mobility and experienced great enthusiasms and profound disappointments. In startling photographs from the archives of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research and with a lively and lucid narrative, A Century of Ambivalence traces the historical experience of Jews in Russia from a period of creativity and repression in the second half of the 19th century through the paradoxes posed by the post-Soviet era. This redesigned edition, which includes more than 200 photographs and two substantial new chapters on the fate of Jews and Judaism in the former Soviet Union, is ideal for general readers and classroom use. Zvi Gitelman is Professor of Political Science and Director of the Jean and Samuel Frankel Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Michigan. He is author of Jewish Nationality and Soviet Politics: The Jewish Sections of the CPSU, 1917-1930 and editor of Bitter Legacy: Confronting the Holocaust in the USSR (Indiana University Press).

Convivencia : Jews, Muslims, and Christians in medieval Spain by Vivian B Mann( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Middle Ages in Spain - the period from the Muslim Conquest in 711 to the expulsion of the Jews and the defeat of the last Muslim ruler in 1492 - witnessed an extraordinary "Golden Age" through the intermingling of its Jewish, Muslim, and Christian inhabitants. This volume explores the nature of their coexistence (termed convivencia by Spanish historians), which embraced not only ideological interchange and cultural influence, but also mutual friction, rivalry, and
Image before my eyes : a photographic history of Jewish life in Poland, 1864-1939 by Lucjan Dobroszycki( Book )

New York : capital of photography by Max Kozloff( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most of these photographers were Jewish. New York: Capital of Photography examines their responses to their environment in the context of a Jewish sensibility, as manifested especially by the depiction of viewer-viewed relationships in the public - and not so public - spaces of the city. This book recognizes and newly analyzes the influence of Jewish consciousness on the photographic vision of a great metropolis."--Jacket
An expressionist in Paris : the paintings of Chaim Soutine by Norman L Kleeblatt( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and German and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born near Minsk in White Russia, the painter Chaim Soutine (1894-1943) created his major works in France between the two World Wars. He is identified with the School of Paris, the group of artists, many of them foreign-born and Jewish, who lived and worked in the French capital between the wars. Known as a "painter's painter", Soutine worked with unreserved gesture and emotion, using exuberant color, thickly applied paint, and sweeping brushwork. Chaim Soutine is a comprehensive, ground-breaking book that rediscovers this important artist, providing an overview of his life, work, and aesthetic influence, as well as his critical reception. Essays by leading scholars and curators assess Soutine's art from new vantage points, including the changing critical reception of his work in Paris between the wars, as well as in the US and France in the aftermath of World War II and the Holocaust. The essays also examine the influence of Soutine's Jewish and French immigrant background on his work and reception, and introduce us to his important patrons and major collectors. These included Albert Barnes, the famous Philadelphia collector, who discovered Soutine's work in 1922-23 and purchased 52 of his paintings. The book features presentations and information never published before, including a photo-essay composed of rare photographs of the artist, newly discovered correspondence between Soutine and the French art historian Elie Faure, and the first radiographic analysis of the artist's work, which brings to light new evidence about Soutine's use of materials and his process of painting

The art of William Steig by Claudia J Nahson( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known for his brilliant cartoons and award-winning children's books, William Steig (1907-2003) leaves a legacy that spans much of the twentieth century. This lavishly illustrated book features over 280 of Steig's drawings, many of them previously unpublished, and examines every aspect of his work, from the "Small Fry" cartoons, his earliest submissions to the New Yorker, and haunting symbolic drawings of the late 1930s and 1940s, to his later, bitingly funny cartoons and celebrated books for children. In the seventy-three years that Steig worked for the New Yorker, the magazine published over 120 of his covers and more than 1,600 of his drawings in a wide range of styles, including classic cartoons, psychologically fraught pen-and-ink renderings, and Picasso-esque representations. He brought a new voice to the magazine by creating cartoons that drew on his experience as a son of immigrant Eastern European Jews. In his sixties, Steig embarked on a second career as a writer and illustrator of children's books, including Sylvester and the Magic Pebble and Shrek! These remarkable projects bring together numerous key elements of Steig's work: his evocative use of reverie, his interest in cranks and complainers, and his belief in the redeeming power of love, nature, and art. The story of Steig's work is told by the author, as well as the cartoonist's fellow artists and writers, and his family members. Together they create a portrait of a penetrating social observer with a restless imagination and a love for his craft
The radical camera : New York's Photo League, 1936-1951 by Mason Klein( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Artists in the Photo League, active from 1936 to 1951, were known for capturing sharply revealing, compelling moments from everyday life. Their focus centered on New York City and its vibrant streets--a newsboy at work, a brass band on a bustling corner, a crowded beach at Coney Island. Though beautiful, the images harbor strong social commentary on issues of class, child labor, and opportunity. The Radical Camera explores the fascinating blend of aesthetics and social activism at the heart of the Photo League, tracing the group's left-leaning roots and idealism to the worker-photography movement in Europe. Influenced by mentors Lewis Hine, Berenice Abbott, and Paul Strand, artists in the Photo League worked within a unique complex comprising a school, a darkroom, a gallery, and a salon, in which photography was discussed as both a means for social change and an art form. The influence of the Photo League artists on modern photography was enormous, ushering in the New York School. Presenting 150 works of the members of the Photo League alongside complementary essays that offer new interpretations of the League's work, ideas, and pedagogy, this beautifully illustrated book features artists including Margaret Bourke-White, Sid Grossman, Morris Engel, Lisette Model, Ruth Orkin, Walter Rosenblum, Aaron Siskind, W. Eugene Smith, and Weegee, among many others"--Provided by publisher
Joan Snyder by Hayden Herrera( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although Joan Snyder's compelling paintings are often placed under various art-movement umbrellas - Abstract Expressionism, Neo-Expressionism, and Feminist Art - her work has always been difficult to categorize. In the first major book on this influential artist, Hayden Herrera brings new insight to Snyder's mixed-medium works and their combination of female imagery, dynamic brush strokes, and accomplished formalism." "Through rich illustrations and illuminating text, Joan Snyder details the complex evolution of the artist's works, from her evocative brush strokes in Symphony and Summer Orange, which drip with 'rivulets of feeling, ' to her slow progression toward the formal structures of grid landscapes like Symphony III, to her bold historical and political works like Women In Camps. Since the 1980s, Snyder's paintings have taken on an autobiographical and often deeply personal tone, as expressed in Love's Pale Graves. Her latest paintings, such as the majestic Women Make Lists, represent a culmination of the grief, jubilation, and, finally, transcendence that reside in the heart of Snyder's work."--Jacket
Alias Man Ray : the art of reinvention by Mason Klein( Book )

New York Dadaist, Parisien surrealist, international portraitist & fashion photographer, this work considers how the career of Man Ray was shaped by his turn-of-the-century Jewish immigrant experience & his lifelong evasion of his past
The Jewish identity project : new American photography by Susan Chevlowe( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While American Jews are commonly considered a homogenous ethnic group, the reality today is far more complex. Conversion, adoption, intermarriage, and immigration have transformed the fabric of Jewish communities, as they have the United States as a nation. This book explores questions of American Jewish identity and how Jews fit today into larger discourses of race, ethnicity, and religion. Featuring ten photographic and video projects by emerging and mid-career artists, all commissioned by The Jewish Museum, the book presents a range of provocative discussions of the nature of Jewish identity in twenty-first-century America."--BOOK JACKET
