Alice Neel : painted truths by Alice Neel( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents a survey of the works of American artist Alice Neel (1900-1984). Neel became known for her oil on canvas portraits of friends, family, lovers, poets, artists and strangers. Her paintings are notable for their expressionistic use of line and color, psychological acumen, and emotional intensity. She was unique for her time because she was a portrait painter at a time when this was traditionally the role of a male artist. Although the book focuses on her portraits, it also covers the artist's early social realist paintings and cityscapes, tracing the evolution of Neel's style and examining themes that she revisited throughout her career

Failure by Lisa Le Feuvre( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Amidst current global uncertainty failure has become a central subject of investigation in recent art. Artists have actively claimed the space of failure to propose a resistant view of the world. Here success is deemed overrated, doubt embraced, experimentation encouraged and risk considered a viable position. Between the poles of success and failure lies a productive space where paradox rules and dogma is refused. This anthology establishes failure as a core concern in contemporary cultural production. Failure is one of a series documenting major themes and ideas in contemporary art."
