Alberto Giacometti by Christian Klemm( Book )

17 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 935 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today, one hundred years after his birth and a generation after his death, Alberto Giacometti is recognized as one of the small group of modern masters who dominated art during much of the twentieth century. This centennial volume both celebrates his achievement and reexamines his work, and thus contributes to a more focused concentration on the art itself. The importance of reassessing Giacometti's work resides not only in each new generation finding a somewhat different artist than its forebears, but also in that each fresh look tends to impede the spread of myths and generalizations that shield us from the complexities of a great artist's oeuvre. This publication is meant to extend popular and critical understanding of Giacometti's achievement and to return the reader to the center of Giacometti's work, where new insights can only be revealed by the objects themselves."--Jacket

The original copy : photography of sculpture, 1839 to today by Roxana Marcoci( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The exhibition and book were conceived by Roxana Marcoci ... who organized them around distinct conceptual ideas. Examining the rich historical legacy of photography, and the aesthetic shifts that have taken place in the medium over the last 170 years, she also built on extensive conversations and collaborations with living artists to explore its uses within contemporary art practice. At the same time she asked the question, 'What is sculpture?, ' tracing it through a selection of 300 outstanding pictures that tap on a broad spectrum of expressions, ranging in subject from inanimate objects to the performing human body. The Original Copy incorporates impressive groups of works by many key figures of modernist and avant-garde art"--Page 7

Francis Picabia : our heads are round so our thoughts can change direction by Anne Umland( )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the great modern artists of the past century, Picabia is one of the most elusive, given his extreme eclecticism and persistent acts of self-contradiction. Though known as a Dadaist, Picabia's ongoing stylistic shifts, from Impressionism to radical abstraction, from mechanical imagery to pseudo-classicism, and from photo-based realism to art informel remain to be assessed in depth. Similarly, the breadth of his practice, which encompassed poetry, film and performance is under-recognized. Each makes him a figure relevant for contemporary artists, while the career as a whole challenges familiar narratives of modernism. Francis Picabia presents over 100 paintings, complemented by works on paper, publications, and film. Featuring some 500 illustrations and 14 essays, it examines the full range of Picabia's oeuvre

Ferdinand Hodler, landscapes by Ferdinand Hodler( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ferdinand Hodler (1853-1918) is one of the most important Swiss painters. His work, influenced by Realism and Symbolism, was and is widely shown all over Europe and prefigured art nouveau and modernist abstraction. His landscape paintings remain the most vital part of his oeuvre to this day. This book shows around 70 of his most beautiful and important landscape paintings and examines the importance of landscape in the creative development of this seminal Swiss painter. In his beginnings, Hodler was influenced by the late Romantics and French landscape painting. He later developed his own quietly monumental style. In the last two decades of his life, he created a landscape oeuvre counting among the major achievements of modern European painting. An indispensable introduction to the work of this often neglected Swiss master."--BOOK JACKET
Sigmar Polke : Werke & Tage by Bice Curiger( Book )

15 editions published in 2005 in German and English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dadaglobe reconstructed by Adrian Sudhalter( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dadaglobe was to be the definitive anthology of the Dada movement. Had it been published in 1921 as planned, it would have constituted more than one hundred artworks by some thirty artists from seven countries, showing Dada to be an artistic and literary movement with truly global reach. Yet, mainly due to a lack of funding, it remained unpublished, leaving a remarkable void in the literature on this early twentieth-century movement. On the one-hundredth anniversary of the founding of Dada in Zürich, Dadaglobe Reconstructed restores this fascinating literary artifact with reproductions of the works of art received for the original book by the Romanian poet and cofounder of the Dada movement Tristan Tzara. Tzara's call for submissions in four categories--drawings, photographs of artworks, photographic self-portraits, and book layouts--was met not merely with existing works. In fact, the parameters for production also served as a catalyst for the creation of many new ones, including some of the Dada movement's most iconic works. For the first time, the collection is presented here in full color and alongside essays examining Tzara's concept and the history of Dada and Dadaglobe. Based on years of extensive research by American scholar Adrian Sudhalter, Dadaglobe Reconstructed provides a remarkable view of Dada, with a wealth of previously unpublished material. It will be essential--and fascinating--reading for anyone interested in the first truly international avant-garde movement."--Publisher's description
Fuseli : the wild Swiss by Franziska Lentzsch( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In England, Henry Fuseli was known as the 'Wild Swiss', but he was nevertheless seen as a very British artist, famous for his illustrations of the works of William Shakespeare and John Milton. This lavishly illustrated collection examines Fuseli's most famous paintings, populated by elemental spirits, goblins, and other deliciously strange creatures, as well as the artist's early sketches, his monumental historical paintings, and his rarely seen erotic drawings. Accompanying critical essays trace Fuseli's own evolution - from his forced exile at twenty-five after publishing a volatile pamphlet against the local Zürich government, to his later activities as a member of the British Royal Academy of Arts
