Alberto Giacometti by Alberto Giacometti( Book )

13 editions published in 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Blurb: One of the great masters of 20th century art, the Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti captured the existential loneliness of modern humanity with his spindly, attenuated figures whose life-like gazes pierce the vastness of space. Uniting more than 250 sculptures, paintings, drawings and graphic works, this extensive monograph is an exemplary overview of his oeuvre. The book underscores the continuity between the two remarkable bodies of work that characterize his career: the pre-1935 works, which included the finest of all Surrealist sculptures, and the post-war masterpieces. As a result of a profound artistic crisis that began in 1934, when Giacometti returned to working from the model and thus broke with the Surrealists, the artist began tackling the problem of situating figures in space in an entirely new way. Painting played a key role in the solutions that Giacometti found to this problem, and the discussion here of the relationship between his two- and three- dimensional works reveals him to have been as great a painter as he was a sculptor
Six exceptional women : further memoirs by James Lord( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the acute eye and the passion for truth that made his Picasso and Dora both "wickedly perceptive and daring" and "a real work of literature" (The New York Times Book Review), James Lord presents here six extraordinary portraits of women whose character and personal courage left an indelible mark on him. The devotion of Alice B. Toklas to the life she shared with Gertrude Stein; the heroic endurance of the great French actress Arletty, never allowed to forget her wartime sin of loving a German officer; the willful independence that made Marie-Laure de Noailles both a social iconoclast and an amazing collector, of art and individuals; the constancy and resilience of Errieta Perdikidi in the crucible of civil-war-torn Greece; and the untiring faith of his own mother, Louise Bennett Lord, in her wayward son's creative potential - each of these exceptional individuals is brought to memorable life with Lord's unique gift for the intimate portrait
Mythic Giacometti by James Lord( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) is likely to be remembered as the most eminent sculptor of the twentieth century. During his lifetime, his spiritual tenacity and intellectual perception were legendary. After his death, it became apparent - as James Lord persuasively demonstrated in Giacometti: A Biography - that Giacometti's most heroic triumphs lay in the modest and arduous achievements of meta-physical insight." "Giacometti has come to be considered a classic study of the creative life. It delves deeply into the matrix of genius but at the same time deliberately veils the mythological origins of Geacometti's achievement. Lord reveals the secret source of Giacometti's destiny - family legend, childhood memories, illnesses and injuries, crucial sexual encounters, intimations of morality - all of which mark him, in Lord's view, as a direct descendent of mythological heroes: Prometheus, Daedalus, Hercules, Ulysses, Oedipus."--Jacket

Picasso and Dora : a personal memoir by James Lord( Book )

16 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Picasso and Dora tells the story of Lord's intense but ambivalent relationship with the great artist. More important, however, it relates with detailed candor his long, intimate, complex relationship with Dora Maar, the mistress from whom Picasso was just parting when the young soldier met them. A legendary and reclusive figure, a gifted photographer and painter, still living today in the apartment and country house where Picasso installed her more than half a century ago, Dora Maar is at once the most important and least known of Picasso's loves. Lord's memoir brings her to life with the bold and incisive aptitude for psychological truth which has always characterized his work. The cast of secondary characters in this vivid evocation of the postwar Parisian art world includes Balthus, Jacques Lacan, Andre Masson, Giacometti, and numerous others. Picasso and Dora represents a new - and permanent - contribution to the history of art in our time
