Alberto Giacometti by Christian Klemm( Book )

14 editions published in 2001 in 3 languages and held by 869 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."--BOOK JACKET
Fernand Léger by Fernand Léger( Book )

21 editions published in 1998 in English and German and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fernand Leger is the only major modern artist to choose modernity itself as his subject. From his early series "Contrastes de formes," of 1913-14 - the first fully abstract works to emerge from Cubism - through his paintings of construction workers from the late 1940s and early 1950s, his enduring subject was the pulse and dynamism of everyday life. Leger saw the twentieth-century environment as "a state of contrasts," a condition that he translated into art through forceful juxtapositions of shape, color, and line. His attempt to reconcile the formal concerns of artmaking with issues of social responsibility continues to be relevant to the art world of today." "This book is published to accompany a retrospective exhibition appearing at The Museum of Modern Art in the winter and spring of 1998 - New York's first in-depth survey of Leger's work in over forty years. The essays include Carolyn Lanchner's account of Leger's experience of and interest in America (he visited the United States several times, and lived there during World War II), and also of America's interest in him. Jodi Hauptman explores refractions of Leger's interests in the work of more recent artists, and Matthew Affron discusses Leger's ambition to make an art reflecting the "new visual state" of modern life. The plate section reproduces over eighty of Leger's paintings and drawings, and is accompanied by a series of short essays tracing formal and thematic developments in his art."--Jacket

Paul Klee, his life and work by Paul Klee( Book )

12 editions published in 2001 in 3 languages and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the course of his creativity, Klee developed his artistic will slowly, almost hesitantly. His work formed organically. Undogmatic and open to all graphic life, he let himself be inspired by the art of the past and the present. Fairytale lyrics and grotesque satire, tender jesting and real demonism, profound mysticism and sober romanticism live in Klee's work, which always radiates his personal sphere with all its variety. In this monograph, an immensely compressed picture of the artistic as well as the human side of his career evolves by way of the extensive pictorial material and accompanying essays, a picture which gives information about "Klee's contribution to the expansion of artistic articulation"."--BOOK JACKET
Jackson Pollock by Carolyn Lanchner( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents eleven works selected from the nearly one hundred pieces by American painter Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art (New York City). Pollack was a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. His groundbreaking "drip" paintings of the late 1940s and early 1950s are here, along with early and late works demonstrating the fluid interaction between figuration and abstraction in his art and the direction of his painting at his untimely death. A lively essay by Carolyn Lanchner, a former curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum, accompanies each work, illuminating its significance and placing it in its historical moment in the development of modern art and in Pollock's own life
