Most widely held works by John Yau
Ed Paschke by Neal David Benezra( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deborah Butterfield by Robert Gordon( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Deborah Butterfield transforms pieces of scrap metal and found wood into majestic, life-size horse sculptures that are, as art historian Wayne L. Roosa has written, "like ancient, noble archaeological remains, skeletal and grand." Her sculptures also may be the first works to explore the interior lives of horses - a long overdue answer to centuries of martial and monumental equine art." "This volume presents a retrospective look at this important American artist. At the core of the book are color photographs of the sculptures, installed in galleries, in the artist's studios, and at Walla Walla Foundry. An insightful essay by novelist and horsewoman Jane Smiley sensitively captures the depth of Butterfield's passion for horses both living and sculpted. John Yau, poet and art critic, adds a formal analysis of the artist's work. In a selection of poems, the late poet Vicki Hearne, a close friend of Butterfield's, translates this world of horse-human dialogue. Robert Gordon has followed the artist's career for a quarter century and brings unique insight and vision to her body of work."--Jacket
A thing among things : the art of Jasper Johns by John Yau( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author focuses his attention on how the artist's pioneering paintings relate to life as it is lived and on what they tell us about what it means to be mortal and alive in time. He clears a path through the tangle of narrowly self-reflexive interpretations that have plagued so much critical writing on Johns's work during the past half century, providing a fresh approach and opening our eyes to Johns's accomplishment in revealing ways.--P. 2 of dust jacket

The United States of Jasper Johns by John Yau( Book )

5 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

And Minimalism, as well as a hermetic figure whose work has confounded critics for nearly forty years. Yau's view of Johns's paintings not only makes many aspects of the artist's work accessible for the first time, but also reveals the profoundly emotional tenor of this supposedly aloof figure. Yau's descriptions and meditations are united with Johns's own thoughts, culled from conversations between poet and artist over the past ten years. The result is fresh insight

Donald Judd's Marfa, Texas( Visual )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An artist and critic, Donald Judd was the embodiment of considerable duality - at once a man of intellectual rigor and a multidisciplinary conceptualist who deftly moved toward a new minimalism. In 1971, he relocated from New York to the prairies of Presidio County in southern Texas, 20 miles from the Mexican border. It is here, in Marfa, Texas, that Chris Felver interviews Judd, providing insights into his process, his materials - aluminum, brass, Plexiglas, and concrete - and the freedom he sought to achieve from institutions trying to define what art is. A rare visit with an exceptional talent and a compelling destination for art aficionados

Dazzling water, dazzling light by Pat Steir( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paradiso diaspora by John Yau( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the anagram of its title suggests, the poems, prose, lyrics, and memoir in Paradiso Diaspora focus on an inescapable duality. It is the duality of living in both painted gardens and in the shadows of historic events that sweep one along. John Yau explores the language of telling, of biography, auto and otherwise, of landscapes that are simultaneously imaginary and real, of ways to enter and leave "the kingdom of poetry." This is a book of displacements and unpredictable associations, of "last confessions" and "coming attractions," at once haunted and haunting. Book jacket."--Jacket
