Black sun : the eyes of four : roots and innovation in Japanese photography by Mark Holborn( Book )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japanese photography abounds, yet we have few published monographs that chart the growth of art photography in that country. To help fill this gap, Aperture has just published an unusual anthology of work by four of Japan's leading photographers. The most familiar of the four, Eikoh Hosoe, has produced an essay that dramatizes the legend of Kamaitach--a demonic spirit that visits rice fields and slashes its victims to death. Shomei Tomatsu has been absorbed with documenting the effects of the nuclear bombings of Japan along with other newsworthy events. Masahisa Fukase has produced an epic series on crows as a symbol of evil. And Daido Moriyama presents us with his graphic interpretation of Japan's culture. Also included is Mark Haworth-Booth's essay on the Japanese photographic climate
Richard Prince by Nancy Spector( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1977, Prince's deceptively simple act of re-photographing advertising images from The New York Times Magazine and presenting them as his own ushered in an entirely new, critical approach to making art--one that questioned notions of originality and the privileged status of the unique aesthetic object. Prince's technique involves appropriation, and he pilfers freely from the vast image bank of popular culture to create works that simultaneously embrace and critique a quintessentially American sensibility, with images stemming from the Marlboro Man, muscle cars, biker chicks, off-color jokes, gag cartoons and pulp fiction novels, among many other sources. Organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, this major traveling retrospective brings together Prince's photographs, paintings, sculptures and works on paper in the most comprehensive examination of his work to date

La muestra presenta un centenar de obras -pinturas, dibujos, grabados, objetos pintados, pitura mural- que muestran la trayectoria artística de Palermo, quien exploró de manera exhaustiva los límites de la pintura abstracta, cuya fuerza residía para él en las posibilidades del color para evocar una gran diversidad de sensaciones y para traspasar los límites de formato de la pintura tradicional.

"Composed of bright monochrome squares randomly arranged in a grid to create stunning sheets of kaleidoscopic color, Gerhard Richter's 4900 Colors (2007) - the latest result of the artist's long-term exploration of seriality - was created just following the completion of his design for the south transept window of Cologne Cathedral, unveiled in August 2007, which is made of 11,500 hand-blown squares of glass in 72 colors. 4900 Colors consists of 196 panels of 25 different colored squares that can be reconfigured in 11 variations, from one large-scale piece to multiple, smaller paintings. Version II - 49 identically sized paintings, each 38 x 38 inches - was produced for Richter's 2008 Serpentine Gallery exhibition, also catalogued here, alongside texts by critics Benjamin Buchloh, Peter Gidal and Birgit Pelzer as well as Serpentine Director, Julia Peyton Jones and Serpentine Co-Director of Exhibitions Hans Ulrich Obrist."--BOOK JACKET
