Alice Neel : painted truths by Alice Neel( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 856 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 )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 498 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."

Hannah Höch by Hannah Höch( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book on the celebrated Dada artist Hannah Höch explores her use of collage as the artistic medium of choice for both satire and poetic beauty. World-renowned for her work during the Weimar period, Hannah Höch was a pioneer in many aspects, both artistic and cultural. She was the crucial female artist of the Berlin Dada movement - the riotous movement that deconstructed sound, language, and images to re-assemble them into new objects, texts and meanings. Höch was a pivotal force in the development of collage, paving the way for today's ubiquitous image editing techniques. A determined believer in artistic freedom, Höch questioned conventional concepts of partnership, beauty and the making of art, her work presenting acute critiques of racial and social stereotypes, particularly that of her native Germany. Focusing on Höch's collages, this book examines the artist's career from the 1910s to the 1970s, charting her oeuvre from early works influenced by fashion and mass media, through to her later compositions of lyrical abstraction. It reveals her rapid development of a personal style, which was both humorous and often moving, but also offered critical commentary on society at a time of tremendous social change."--Publisher's description

Hans Bellmer by Hans Bellmer( Book )

12 editions published in 2006 in English and German and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Surrealists' fascination for dolls and machines resembling humans is especially evident in the work of Hans Bellmer (1902-1975). Rejecting the Nazis' Aryan ideals, the artist began creating disturbing dolls from wax, wood, flax, plaster and glue in 1933. This comprehensive monograph, containing new analytical essays by curators Agnes de la Beaumelle and Alain Sayag, and historian Weiland Schmied, as well as a detailed chronology of the artist's life, provides insight into the work of this master of Surrealism."--Jacket

Faces in the crowd : picturing modern life from Manet to today = volti nella folla : immagini dell vita moderna da Manet a oggi by Whitechapel Art Gallery( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Italian and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking Edouard Manet as its starting point and moving through the work of major painters and sculptors such as Ensor, Boccioni, Duchamp, Kollwitz, Kirchner, Beckmann, Magritte, Picasso, Hopper, Warhol, Hamilton, Pistoletto, Richter, Acconci, Sherman, Schutte, Ofili and Kentridge, as well as photographers such as Atget, Brassai, Evans, Levitt, Arnold, Weegee, Giacomelli, Goldin and Keita, Faces in the Crowd traces a history of avant-garde figuration from the 1870s to today through the works of one hundred artists." "The great revolutions in twentieth century art tend to be associated with abstraction. Yet there is a parallel history, which is equally radical. Manet's vividly realist scenarios or Jeff Wall's cinematic tableaux offer a compelling pictorial illusion of the modern. By contrast, Edvard Munch or Francis Bacon present a tortured or exhilarated inner life. For Alexander Rodchenko, the figure can be an agent of social change, revolutionary transgressive or symbolic." "This catalogue accompanies the exhibition organised by the Whitechapel Gallery and the Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art."--Jacket
Adventures of the black square : abstract art and society 1915-2015 by Iwona Blazwick( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring how the universal visual language of geometric abstraction was influenced by different societies, this volume also demonstrates how the movement's revolutionary aesthetic continues to impact culture around the globe. It traces a century of abstract art from 1915 to the present day, celebrating the accomplishments of both men and women and includes sculpture, film, photography and painting. Organised around four distinct themes - communication, architectonics, utopia and everyday life - the book presents a chronological survey from Russia to Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Central America, Africa, South America, and the US. Each of the 100 works is featured in double-page spreads with brief artist biographies. Essays by Tanya Barson, Briony Fer, Tom McDonough, and Joshua Jiang, contextualize the various geographic and aesthetic stages of the development of geometric abstraction
Gillian Wearing by Gillian Wearing( Book )

16 editions published in 2012 in German and English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"British conceptual artist Gillian Wearing won the Turner Prize in 1997 while still in her mid 30. This comprehensive, copiously illustrated exhibition catalog documents the first major retrospective of her video and photography based works. One of the young British artists, Wearing is represented in important collections ranging from the Tate Modern to the Guggenheim and the Hammer Museum. The key to unlocking the work of Gillian Wearing is found not in art history but in reality television, writes Ben Luke in the London Evening Standard. Not so much the tabloid fodder of the 21st century but the tough stuff from the Sixties and Seventies. Always at the grittier end of the Young British Artists spectrum, she is in essence a documentary film maker and photographer, her work weaving around the line that documentary treads between fact and fiction." --Publisher description
