Rubens and his Legacy by Nico van Hout( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rubens is undoubtedly the most influential Flemish painter. Through reproductions in print, his compositions had an immense impact, even during his lifetime. Himself indebted to Titian, Rubens became a role model to Van Dyck, Rembrandt and Velázquez, and influenced artists well beyond his time, including figures such as Cézanne, Picasso, Bacon and Freud. This stunning new volume explores Rubenss legacy thematically, through a series of sections devoted to Violence, Power, Lust, Compassion, Elegance and Poetry. Illustrating some of the artists most famous paintings alongside great works that bear his influence, each section will link artists across the centuries in their references to Rubens, from Van Dyck and Watteau to Manet, Daumier, Renoir and Van Gogh, as well as Gainsborough, Constable and Turner.--
Magritte and photography by Patrick Roegiers( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in 3 languages and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rene Magritte, the great Surrealist painter, begin experimenting with photography at an early age. While still a young student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels, he posed in a three piece suit, standing before his easel with brush and palette in hand - already projecting the carefully constructed image of the artist he wanted to become. His finely calibrated, bourgeois persona eventually entered into his own paintings, becoming a uniform image of the dark, dark-suited man with umbrella and hat. But it was in photographs that Magritte first incarnated the figure of himself as a great painter, instantly recognizable and before long, universally celebrated." "Magritte and Photography is an illuminating and enjoyable study of the ways in which the photographic medium played a constant role in Magritte's social and artistic life. Beginning with turn-of-the-century pictures of his parents and siblings, running through surrealist scenarios involving friends Louis Scutenaire and Paul Nouge, and ending with haunting portraits taken by Duane Michals, this volume explores both Magritte's life and his construction of it - though the camera lens."--Jacket

Abstraction : the Amerindian paradigm by Mary Frame( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and Spanish and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La muestra pretende reflejar la emergencia de un arte abstracto enraizado en la herencia precolombima, que rompe con la creencia dominante del arte abstracto como prerrogativa occidental. Las nociones de central-marginal se interpretan a partir de una nueva lectura de las formas abstractas surgidas a partir de prácticas como el tejido y la cerámica, o las técnicas de construcción básica consideradas en Occidente como humilde artesanía. La geometría inamovible y los colores vivos de los antiguos tejidos andinos se proclaman así como el paradigma textil de la abstracción, predecesora de la retícula vanguardista de Occidente

Views on Europe : Europe and German painting in the nineteenth century( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a superb selection of over a hundred and fifty masterpieces, ranging from Neoclassicism and Romanticism to Realism, academic experts from three great institutions impressively show how the thread of Europe was woven into German art. They outline the wide variety of themes painters picked up from the European literature and political or intellectual debate of the time, the aspects and events they recorded as observers and chroniclers, and how the painters criss-crossed Europe in every direction - from the Nordic countries to Spain, and from Greece to Russia - absorbing artistic influences and making their own contribution abroad at the same time. German nineteenth-century art was European in the best sense. Over three hundred and eighty coloured illustrations in this volume illustrate the masterpieces of this multi-faceted period."--Jacket
A useful dream : African photography, 1960-2010 by Simon Njami( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Photography has proved a particularly essential art in the African continent's postcolonial era, both for recording the numerous seismic moments in its recent history, and for reclaiming the imagery of Africa from its colonial portrayers. As Africa has begun to step beyond its colonial subjugation, photography has also assumed a leading role in providing African countries with individual identities. Tracking the blossoming of postcolonial photography in Africa from 1960 to the present, and accompanying an exhibition at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, A Useful Dream: African Photography 1960-2010 celebrates 50 years of African photography. Among the 34 photographers gathered in its pages are Rui Assubuji, Nabil Boutros, Loulou Cherinet, James Depara, Samuel Fosso, David Goldblatt, Bob Gosani, Pierrot Men, Zwelethu Mtethwa, Eileen Perrier, Ricardo Rangel, Malick Sidibe and Patrice-Felix Tchikaya. The volume includes an introduction by Simon Njami and a text by Frank Vanhaecke."--Amazon

The Great Workshop : pathways of art in Europe, 5th to 18th centuries by Roland Recht( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and French and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Long before its emergence as a political entity, Europe was distinguished by its intense traffic in goods and people. Artist, art-lovers, and rich patrons made arduous journeys not only by road but also by river to far-flung locales as they sought to satisfy their appetite for beauty. This is the world of The Great Workshop, in which the editors develop a number of themes analyzing the circulation of art and the artistic community over a substantial geographic area ranging from Dublin to Palermo, from Cordoba to Stockholm, Rouen to Sofia. Short, focused essays treating the peregrinations of those conducting the business of art are crucial to our understanding of the migration of themes and formal motifs." "With its remarkable and often spectacular selections, The Great Workshop illustrates the complex web of European artistic exchange and production. The book contains 350 full-color examples from well over one hundred European collections and essays from distinguished art historians who elucidate a long stretch of art history from the fall of the Roman Empire to the birth of the first great museums of Europe."--Jacket

Jeff Wall : the crooked path by Jeff Wall( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in 4 languages and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The photography of Jeff Wall (born 1946) is consciously and profoundly saturated in the social: in the Vancouver art community from which he first emerged, fully formed, in the late 1970s; in the racial and gender politics of our times, which he analyses with marvelous clarity in his huge photographic light boxes that declare an equal status with painting through their scale and their carefully plotted depth and grandeur; in the art history pantheon that informs his staged compositions, from Hokusai to Velásquez and Manet; and in his influence on at least two generations of photographers, most notably the Düsseldorf school (Andreas Gursky once cited Wall as "a great model for me"). Jeff Wall: The Crooked Path examines the cultural context for Wall's tremendous achievement in photography. Wall himself has chosen 25 of his own photographs, taken between the late 1970s and the present, and has constellated them among the visionary company his work keeps, alongside reproductions of works by Marcel Duchamp, Diane Arbus, Eugene Atget, Wols, Andreas Gursky, David Claerbout, Thomas Struth, Frank Stella, Robert Smithson, Rodney Graham, Ian Wallace, Lawrence Wiener and R.W. Fassbinder. The Crooked Path orients Wall's photography across ten themed chapters, each of which is prefaced with an interview with Wall by Hans De Wolf. Also included are testimonies and essays by fellow artists and art historians, such as Luc Tuymans, Lawrence Weiner, Michael Fried and David Campany."--Amazon website
