Understanding installation art : from Duchamp to Holzer by Mark Rosenthal( Book )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and French and held by 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This examination of installation art demystifies and deconstructs the artistic medium most likely to induce the question, But is it Art?" "When we think of installation art we imagine enormous, perhaps bewildering, multi-media environments. But the world's earliest known installation projects were created millenia ago on the walls of caves in Lascaux, France. Although the genre has been evolving ever since, its primary impulse - a dialogue between artist and space - remains the same. In Understanding Installation Art, Mark Rosenthal offers an historical interpretation and concise critical analyses that will help deepen readers' appreciation of this often confusing medium." "Citing examples as diverse as the Sistine Chapel, Colonial Williamsburg, Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty, and Vito Acconci's Seedbed as well as works by Richard Serra, Rebecca Horn, Claes Oldenburg, Jenny Holzer and Bruce Nauman, the author defines installation art as a medium with broad possibilities for expression, universal appreciation, and democratization. He creates a new taxonomy of his subject, identifying four specific forms - enchantments, impersonations, interventions, and rapprochements - and shows how installation art is steering the concept of art spaces in new and exciting directions. Most importantly he helps readers feel more comfortable with site-specific art, a genre that dates back to man's earliest artistic expression."--Jacket

Joseph Beuys : actions, vitrines, environments by Mark Rosenthal( Book )

28 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Italian and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joseph Beuys (1921-86) - the German sculptor and performance artist - became one of the most influential figures in modern and contemporary art. His charismatic presence, extraordinary life, and unconventional artistic style (incorporating ritualized movement and sound, and materials such as fat, felt, earth, honey, blood, and even dead animals) gained him international fame and notoriety from the 1960s through the 1980s. Beuys's innovative influence is particularly felt in the field of sculpture, whose definition he expanded to encompass performance art, vitrine cases, and site-specific environments." "With a comprehensive chronology of Beuys's activities as an artist and activist, this book is essential for those interested in the life, work, and legacy of one of the art world's most intriguing figures."--Jacket

The surreal Calder by Alexander Calder( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Alexander Calder (1898-1976) is a key presence in the history of modern art, and yet he is rarely seen or remembered in the context from which he initially emerged as an artist. When Calder became "Calder"--Well known for his signature mobiles and stabiles-it was due to a unique variety of presiding influences. His artistic parentage consisted of Marcel Duchamp, who provided the name of and concept for the mobile; Piet Mondrian, who introduced pure abstraction to him; and Joan Miro, who communicated the central theses of Surrealism. Although Calder went on to play a major role in Surrealist manifestations during the formative years of the movement, including being shown in the defining 1936 "Exposition surrealiste d'objets" in Paris, he has since been separated from those beginnings. Indeed, at this point in time, Calder is never included in exhibitions of Surrealist art, even though he was incubated by that phenomenon and contributed mightily to it. This book will put the artist back in midst of Surrealism so that his achievement is more profoundly understood within that context. Works by artists such as Miro, Max Ernst, Yves Tanguy, and Rene Magritte will delineate the Surrealist milieu and some of its chief aspects. The following theses are also explored: Calder's wit, caricature, and linear flights of fancy; his marvelous personages and fantastic creatures; biomorphic forms from an imaginary vision of nature; and his constellations, apparent views of celestial space

Anselm Kiefer : the seven heavenly palaces, 1973-2001 by Anselm Kiefer( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Austrian writer Christoph Ransmayr has contributed an inspired literary investigation of the work and life of this artist living near the French village of Barjac. He takes us through La Ribaute, the artist's studio compound, past glass houses and leaden installations, through poppy fields and dense scrub, through underground passages and containers filled with pictures and sculptures. Meanwhile, the photographer Thomas Flechtner has captured fleeting visual impressions of this creative terrain. Markus Bruderlin, Mark Rosenthal and Katharina Schmidt, each with a deep knowledge of Anselm Kiefer's work, have provided illuminating introductions to the individual chapters that go to make up this detailed compendium which, focusing on four major areas of Anselm Kiefer's work, offers the reader an insight into the specific emblematics used by this artist as well as into the process of his pictorial production and the many-faceted nature of his artistic output."--Jacket

Lucian Freud drawings by Lucian Freud( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From his earliest years as a child prodigy, Lucian Freud prided himself on his virtuoso drawing skills. The interplay in his work between paper (for both drawing and etching) and canvas was a defining feature of his creative habits throughout his career, as Freud's foremost scholar and curator, William Feaver, establishes with this masterful overview of Freud's drawing output. The fruit of Feaver's privileged access to Freud's studio, Lucian Freud Drawings includes more than 100 drawings, around half of which have never been exhibited or published, from the 1940s up to the artist's death in July 2011. Examined here are portraits of Freud's mother and father, his children and close friends-among them the painter Francis Bacon and artist Leigh Bowery-as well as landscapes and studies of animals. Spanning more than seven decades, this beautifully produced volume illuminates the very foundations of this master draftsman's oeuvre
