Hiroshige : birds and flowers by Hiroshige Andō( Book )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This large-format coffee-table book offers an introduction to the work of Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858), master Japanese print maker and artistic force during the Edo period. The 91 spectacular color plates, reproduced from the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Collection at the Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, highlight Hiroshige's refined color sense, economy of composition and delicate, never-sentimental renderings. Haiku or kyoka translations accompany most plates, and an informative introduction by Bogel gives a short history of the Edo period, describing its roots and symbolism, and placing Hiroshige and his influence in historical context

What nerve! : alternative figures in American art, 1960 to the present by Dan Nadel( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What Nerve! reveals a hidden history of American figurative painting, sculpture and popular imagery. It documents and/or restages four installations, spaces or happenings, in Chicago, San Francisco, Detroit and Providence, which were crucial to the development of figurative art in the United States. Several of the better-known artists in What Nerve! have been the subject of significant exhibitions or publications, but this is the first major volume to focus on the broader impact of figurative art to connect artists and collectives from different generations and regions of the country. These are: from Chicago, the Hairy Who (James Falconer, Art Green, Gladys Nilsson, Jim Nutt, Suellen Rocca, Karl Wirsum); from California, Funk artists (Jeremy Anderson, Robert Arneson, Roy De Forest, Robert Hudson, Ken Price, Peter Saul, Peter Voulkos, William T. Wiley); from Detroit, Destroy All Monsters (Mike Kelley, Cary Loren, Niagara, Jim Shaw); and from Providence, Forcefield (Mat Brinkman, Jim Drain, Leif Goldberg, Ara Peterson). Created in collaboration with artists from these groups, the historical moments at the core of What Nerve! are linked by work from six artists who profoundly influenced or were influenced by the groups: William Copley, Jack Kirby, Elizabeth Murray, Gary Panter, Christina Ramberg and H.C. Westermann. Featuring paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs and videos, as well as ephemera, wallpaper and other materials used in the reconstructed installations, the book and exhibition will broaden public exposure to the scope of this influential history. The exuberance, humor and politics of these artworks remain powerfully resonant. Much of the work in this book, including installation photos, exhibition ephemera and correspondence, is published for the first time. What Nerve! represents the first historical examination of the circumstances, relationships and works of an increasingly important lineage of American artists."--Publisher's web site
Possession obsession : Andy Warhol and collecting( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fascinating and visually exciting exhibition catalog reflects the more personal side of Andy Warhol's celebrity persona, that of the compulsive and obsessive collector. With a little help from Frederick Hughes and Jed Johnson, Warhol became a collector extraordinaire with an eye for everything from fine art to furniture to kitsch. This catalog chronicles the diversity of Warhol's obsession, based on the historic Sotheby's auction of his personal collection in April 1988. Essays by a range of contributors focus on Warhol's life as a collector, his important museum installations, and various collection genres. Highlighted are notable objects from art deco to Americana, including Native American and folk art, as well as jewelry and shoes, photographs and cookie jars, and his unique "time capsules."
