The fate of a gesture : Jackson Pollock and postwar American art by Carter Ratcliff ( Book )
9 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing from twenty years of experience as an art critic in New York, Carter Ratcliff maps the Manhattan art world from Fifty-seventh Street to SoHo, revisiting the world of studios, galleries, and artists' bars where those personalities met and clashed. He follows the story of postwar American art from the late 1940s through the triumph of Abstract Expressionism and the sudden explosion of Pop Art, all the way to the boom of the 1980s, which brought stardom to an array of young artists. Over it all looms the monumental and tragic figure of Jackson Pollock, the measure of all who have felt compelled to challenge him

Thrown rope by Peter Hutchinson ( )
10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Although Peter Hutchinson has been working with land art since the 1960s, he has yet to receive his proper due. His work isn't found in galleries and he doesn't practice the kind of sensationalism that is typical of the art world. He is a refreshingly modest artist, and his delicate, fleeting work is extraordinarily beautiful, remarkably intelligent, and endlessly charming. It is our hope that Thrown Rope will place Hutchinson where he belongs: in the canon of modern art alongside Andy Goldsworthy and Robert Smithson. Hutchinson's works are ephemeral and evanescent, produced out in the open, where they are subject to the whims of nature. Much of it is the product of his "thrown rope" method--literally throwing ropes over an expanse of land, then placing lime or planting flowers along the lines determined by the ropes. The result is a snakelike garden or swerving lines of bleached land. Hutchinson has even thrown ropes underwater, planting flowers at the bottom of a lake or stringing oranges or onions beneath the water's surface. Such projects are just a slice of Hutchinson's many conceptual pieces. The photographs within Thrown Rope are all that exists to document Hutchinson's career. Reproduced here along with Hutchinson's own handwritten notes, they provide an inspirational look at one of the most under appreciated artists of our time."--Publisher's website

Fletcher Benton : an American artist ( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Towering large-scale painted steel forms that evoke grids, crystals, and the structural practicality of architecture, Fletcher Benton's sculptures can hold their own "amid the glass and steel towers of the contemporary city" while being equally compatible with the vineyards and fields where they are also often sited. His work has garnered attention and commissions from museums and collectors from California to Italy. In this career monograph, Benton's work is discussed in three different essays, each honing in on a specific period in his career. It is the first inclusive and thorough examination of this major American sculptor and how his work fits into the art timeline of the twentieth century
