Georgia O'Keeffe : American and modern by Charles C Eldredge( Book )

8 editions published in 1993 in English and Japanese and held by 1,164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Georgia O'Keeffe has become a legend in modern western culture. As an artist, she was able to garner and sustain the attention of the public and critics alike for well over six decades. Though O'Keeffe is particularly known for her canvases of large flowers and of bones and skulls, her oeuvre is far more extensive. Georgia O'Keeffe: American and Modern accompanies the first international retrospective of one of the most loved American artists. Charles C. Eldredge explores two qualities of the artist's work - the American and the modern - suggesting that they were the leading impulses for her extraordinary vision. Beginning with a discussion of O'Keeffe as an American artist, Eldredge describes the openly nationalistic billing that the photographer and art impresario Alfred Stieglitz, who later became her husband, gave to her one-woman exhibition in New York in 1923. Even in O'Keeffe's earliest works, her penchant for abstraction is evident. Eldredge also examines the artist's later preoccupation with common subjects such as barns, which reflected her desire to paint "something I know." He highlights these subjects as a mark of her modernism - her ability to borrow from the pedestrian world as a vehicle for transcendence. For the first half of the twentieth century, O'Keeffe was the preeminent woman artist of the United States. Eldredge explores this circumstance as well, discussing the psychoanalytic speculation surrounding the element of sexuality in the artist's drawings and paintings. In particular, her flower paintings grabbed the attention of the critics, who were quick to interpret them with the help of the increasingly popular Freudian theory. Despite the inclination to discuss O'Keeffe's art as feminine self-revelation, critics discovered that it transcended easy categorization. As Eldredge points out, her style and choice of subjects evolved from a variety of influences, not the least of which were the photographic techniques she adopted from Stieglitz. Other influences include the immensity of the American West, a profound commitment to nativism and modernism, and a true respect for American culture. As O'Keeffe's work suggests, her life was infused with a spirit reflecting a new outlook, a new approach that was wholly modern - and distinctly American. Eldredge further illuminates the artist's career with a chronology of her life, which is illustrated with photographs - portraits and snapshots - many of them unpublished, and drawn from O'Keeffe's personal archive and from those of renowned photographers. The chronology creates a historical and biographical context for O'Keeffe's career, emphasizing the maturity and talent of the artist, as well as the scope of her acquaintances and travels. This book, which reproduces more than eighty of O'Keeffe's paintings and drawings, and includes extended discussion of many of them, serves as the catalogue for the exhibition "Georgia O'Keeffe: American and Modern," shown at the Hayward Gallery, London; El Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes, Mexico City; and the Yokohama Museum of Art, Yokohama in 1993 and 1994
The Great age of fresco: Giotto to Pontormo; an exhibition of mural paintings and monumental drawings by N.Y.) Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Great Age of Fresco: Giotto to Pontormo," which was on view for only two months in the fall of 1968, was the first exhibition at the Museum to have corporate sponsorship. Olivetti's underwriting of the exhibition was seen as a model for the pursuit of corporate sponsors for the Centennial exhibitions being planned at that time. -- Excerpt from Wikipedia article "The Metropolitan Museum of Art Centennial."
Spectacular bodies : the art and science of the human body from Leonardo to now by Martin Kemp( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Investigating the wonders of the human face and body, Spectacular Bodies: The Art and Science of the Human Body from Leonardo to Now comprises an array of treasures from the worlds of art and science. Works of art spanning five centuries are considered in an unexpected context, alongside ancient medical books and instruments, and detailed life-size anatomical wax models. Artworks include anatomical drawings by Leonardo, Michelangelo, Durer and Stubbs; a unique group of 17th- and 18th-century portraits of Dutch surgeons at work; and masterpieces by Rembrandt, Gericault, Courbet, Degas and Frith." "Photography, sculpture, video and installations by eight contemporary artists, including Christine Borland, Tony Oursler, Marc Quinn and Bill Viola, provide new perspectives on the subject. Focusing on a variety of issues raised by the historical material, the contemporary works provide alternative ways of thinking about our relationship with science and medicine." "Illustrated and with essays by Martin Kemp, Spectacular Bodies reveals a new way of seeing ourselves."--Jacket

Goya : drawings from his private albums by Juliet Wilson-Bareau( Book )

14 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francisco Goya (1746-1828) is the first truly modern artist, whose penetrating vision of humanity is as relevant today as it was revolutionary in his own time. His most innovative works were created after a near-fatal illness that left him profoundly deaf at the age of forty-seven. Alongside a prodigious output in paintings and prints, he expressed his most private thoughts and feelings in eight remarkable albums of drawings. Made over a period of thirty years, the albums were split up after his death; their pages are now scattered in public and private collections throughout the world." "The album drawings reveal Goya's astonishing powers of invention and observation. They include amazing flights of fantasy, nightmare and biting satire, and show the artist's imagination at work on a vast range of subjects - the pageant of carnival and Holy Week, the upheavals of war, images of childhood and old age, witches and charlatans - in a reflection, both violent and tender, of the world around him." "In this book, Juliet Wilson-Bareau brings together 117 of the finest album drawings. They are shown here for the first time as full-page colour reproductions, all save the largest album as actual-size facsimiles. The drawings are accompanied by extensive commentaries, together with an introductory essay and texts on each of the albums."--Jacket
Salvador Dalí : the early years by Salvador Dalí( Book )

9 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book to explore in depth the development of Dali's early work up to about 1930 - work that led to his emergence as one of the greatest and most popular Surrealist painters. It shows how deeply his later images, obsessions, and attitudes were rooted in his youthful experiences in Catalonia and Spain, and makes a major contribution to the study of this period of Spanish art. Published to accompany an international exhibition of Dali's work to be seen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, London's Hayward Gallery and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, the book contains innovative essays by some of the best-known writers on Dali, Surrealism and contemporary cultural life in Spain, including Dawn Ades, Ian Gibson and Rafael Santos Torroella. Dali's upbringing in Figueres and Cadaques, his student years in Madrid, his relationship with the poet Federico Garcia Lorca, his collaboration with the filmmaker Bunuel, the critical reception of his work, and his ambivalent connection to the French Surrealists before 1930 are all discussed, illuminating in an unprecedented way the imagery of his paintings. This highly original reassessment of Dali's artistic complexity and importance as an innovator contains extensive, previously unpublished documentary material and has been designed to recreate the distinctive look of publications of the period. It includes an extended selection of his texts in translation, an illustrated chronology, many drawings and color plates of the most significant paintings of the period
