James Turrell : a retrospective by Michael Govan( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published in conjunction with a major retrospective, this comprehensive volume illuminates the origins and motivations of James Turrell's incredibly diverse and exciting body of work--from his Mendota studio days to his monumental work-in-progress Roden Crater. Whether he's projecting shapes on a flat wall or into the corner of a gallery space, James Turrell is perpetually asking us to "go inside and greet the light"--Evoking his Quaker upbringing. In fact, all of Turrell's work has been influenced by his life experiences with aviation, science, and psychology, and as a key player in Los Angeles's exploding art scene of the 1960s. Enhanced by thoughtful essays and an illuminating interview with the artist, this monograph explores every aspect of Turrell's career to date--from his early geometric light projections, prints, and drawings, through his installations exploring sensory deprivation and seemingly unmodulated fields of colored light, to recent two-dimensional experiments with holograms. It also features an in-depth look at Roden Crater, a site-specific intervention into the landscape near Flagstaff, Arizona, which will be presented through models, plans, photographs, and drawings. Fans of this highly influential artist will find much to savor in this wide-ranging and beautiful book, featuring specially commissioned new photography by Florian Holzherr"--

Revelation : representations of Christ in photography by Nissan Perez( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the course of the development of photography individual artists have made frequent use of Christian iconography, and some of the resulting images have become milestones in the history of the medium. While addressing the issue of the influence of other art forms on photographic representations of Christ, this book also examines the independent evolution of photography's tradition of portraying scenes from the New Testament over a century and a half of image-making. The entire photographic tradition of representing Christ is explored, including the representation of Christ in films. From the contemplative to the controversial, the images represent the work of an outstanding cast of international photographers, including Paul Strand, Julia Margaret Cameron, Man Ray, Lewis Hine, Robert Mapplethorpe, Pierre et Gilles, Annie Leibovitz, Sam Taylor-Wood and many others
Holy Land in maps by Ariel Tishby( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The map of the Holy Land reflects the religious and political outlook, as well as the scientific and aesthetic sensibilities, of the mapmakers and the society in which they lived. Thus, this 2001 Israel Museum exhibition- the first to bring together maps of the Holy Land from antiquity up until modern times- traced not only the history of cartography but also the development of religious, scientific and artistic thought over the last two millennia. The accompanying publication presents cartographic depictions by Jewish, Christian and Muslim pilgrims, scholars, clergymen, and scientists. These maps are remarkable not only for the religious and geopolitical world they draw, but also for their artistry and beauty

Displaced visions : émigré photographers of the 20th century by Nissan Perez( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The early practitioners of photography in the late 19th century and first decades of the 20th century shaped the evolving language of the medium by expanding the limits of the photographic vision. Many of these pioneers were immigrants - people displaced by choice or, quite often, by necessity. These photographers became observers and interpreters of their new surroundings through the filters of their different cultures, languages and religions. Photography in the 20th century (particularly the Modernist vision) is deeply indebted to them. Displaced Visions reconsiders the work and influence of key figures in modernist photography from the point of view of their status as immigrants, considering how this condition affected their vision and creativity and enhanced the development of the photographic language in general
Man Ray : human equations : a journey from mathematics to Shakespeare by Man Ray( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does one make sense of a purported link between mathematics, William Shakespeare, and art? The answer lies within the oeuvre of Man Ray (1890-1976). The publication sets out to unravel the Surrealist puzzle beginning with his photographs of mathematical models he encountered at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris in the thirties. Moreover, it charts a path culminating in his Shakespearean Equations (1947-1954) series of oil paintings, which were inspired by the photographs and painted in Hollywood over a decade later. The arc the images strike from painting back to photography reveals the ease with which Man Ray moved between various disciplines and forged his own path. An inveterate experimenter, he pioneered artistic activities in the realms of painting, object making, film, and photography, challenging conventional boundaries and blurring established aesthetic categories

The Jewish Wardrobe : from the collection of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem by Muzeʼon Yiśraʼel (Jerusalem)( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and Italian and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fashion, history, and development of Jewish dress tells a story that spans the globe and crosses many cultures. In this colorful volume, Jewish communities—particularly those established for centuries in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa—are revealed through their garments. Stunning photographs spin tales of family traditions and religious devotion, with a special section dedicated to jewelry worn by brides and grooms. Superb photographs of specific garments, with many close-up details, are juxtaposed with rare contextual photographs from the Israel Museum’s archives to create a tapestry of a people revealed through textiles, costume, and images. More than 350 revelatory illustrations tell us how these precious articles of dress were originally worn

The Israel Museum, Jerusalem by Muzeʼon Yiśraʼel (Jerusalem)( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a guide to the extensive and varied collections of the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. Housing a world-acclaimed collection of biblical archaeology - of which the highlight is the famous Dead Sea Scrolls, exhibited in the Shrine of the Book - the Museum is also home to fine works of art from all over the world. These include Old Master paintings, Impressionist, Israeli and contemporary art, holdings in photography, design and ethnic arts, and an impressive sculpture garden displaying, among others, works by Rodin, Henry Moore, David Smith and James Turrell. The world's most comprehensive collections of Judaica and Jewish Ethnography bring to life 2000 years of the communities of the Diaspora through the display of religious and ritual artifacts, clothing, jewellery and objects of everyday life. The vast archaeological collection records the cultures of the Holy Land and neighboring countries - their art, religion, funerary rites, trade and industry - from prehistoric times until the advent of the Muslim era."--BOOK JACKET. "Divided into four chapters covering Archaeology, Art, Judaica and Ethnography, and the innovative Ruth Youth Wing, with its interactive approach aimed at encouraging younger visitors, the book provides a fascinating tour of this unique and beautiful Museum."--BOOK JACKET
