Mythic Giacometti by James Lord( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 453 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
Six exceptional women : further memoirs by James Lord( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 450 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
