"Peut-être à l'avenir, suggéra Man Ray à Duchamp, la photographie remplacerait tout art. La photographie de l'invention fait allusion à cet avenir en documentant une décennie d'un nouveau travail étonnant dans la photographie américaine: un travail qui remet en question la hiérarchie acceptée des arts et, sans doute, établit la photographie comme l'égal des autres arts.Pictures qui sont faits, , Sont au cour de cette collection passionnante d'ouvres de 90 artistes américains qui utilisent l'appropriation, la technologie informatique, la performance et de nombreuses autres sources d'inspiration pour étirer les limites et élargir les possibilités de l'art photographique. Cindy Sherman, Sherrie Levine, Richard Prince, Barbara Kruger, William Christenberry, Louise Lawler, Stefan Roloff et d'autres qui créent ou manipulent le sujet photographié. Traditionnellement utilisé pour capturer l'expérience et créer des images; Ces ouvres examinent cependant des images préexistantes ou des styles d'image qui dominent notre culture. Comme le souligne Joshua Smith, «les médias de masse et la publicité dans la culture populaire, les films de mode, la télévision, la vidéo et d'autres médias électroniques ont fait du monde photographique, devenu la langue commune et façonné le point de vue visuel et critique d'une génération. Plutôt que de commenter ou de représenter la vie, la photographie est maintenant une forme d'art indépendante qui a élargi le vocabulaire créatif des artistes contemporains. Ces images «fabriquées» englobent une variété de styles et de techniques: les artistes peuvent fabriquer ou organiser le sujet de la caméra ; Inventer ou subvertir les styles traditionnels; Se présentent dans des rôles fictifs invoquant l'allégorie ou le mythe, le fantasme et l'illusion; Rassembler les objets d'art existants dans de nouveaux contextes; Font apparaître le psychique réel et le réel hyperréal. Beaucoup de tableaux sont faits dans la manière habituelle optique / chimique, créant une tension entre le sujet évidemment manipulé et la ""vérité"" inhérente de l'impression photographique; Des photographies, des photocollages, des dessins de lumière, des images chimiques, marqués ou peints sur des négatifs, des films photosiligènes et des photolithographies, et de nouveaux ordinateurs de haute technologie générés par ordinateur Imagerie.Joshua P.

John Singer Sargent by Trevor J Fairbrother( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "John Singer Sargent," Trevor Fairbrother, Deputy Director for Art and John and Mary Shirley Curator of Modern Art at the Seattle Art Museum, presents a rich and thoughtful interpretation of Sargent and his art. Fairbrother explores the opposing elements that made Sargent a complex figure and a great artist: he accepted his New England Puritan heritage but, for the most part, lived grandly in Europe; he achieved wealth and fame as a portraitist while hoping that his murals in Boston cultural institutions would win him a loftier reputation; his art revels in the sumptuous effects of brilliant paint surfaces but Sargent himself was shy and retiring in public; the worldy, sophisticated persona of a preeminent artist of the Gilded Age may have concealed a conflicted sexuality

Metropolitan lives : the Ashcan artists and their New York by Rebecca Zurier( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New York at the turn of the century was a city in transition. At the junction of steamship lines from Europe and railroads from the interior, it was the hub of shipping, manufacturing, and corporate activity, as well as the leading port of entry for immigrants. This was the New York of the Ashcan artists. Fascinated with the contrasts and nuances of urban change, George Bellows, William Glackens, Robert Henri, George Luks, Everett Shinn, and John Sloan sought out the human drama of New York's streets - from life in immigrant neighborhoods, backlot football games, boxing matches, and bars to city parks where bums shared space with fashionably dressed young women. If their work contrasted with the genteel subjects typical of art in the 1890s, their subjects were familiar territory to those who turned to contemporary newspaper articles, illustrated magazines, even the vaudeville stage, interpretations of contemporary life. Like journalists, the Ashcan artists captured the breaking trends of their day. This book presents more than 100 paintings, drawings, and prints by the six artists whose earthy, urban subjects led critics to call them the "Ashcan School," along with reproductions of contemporary postcards, sheet music, advertisements, newspaper clippings, and magazine illustrations that show how clearly the artists reflected the current events of their times. The authors discuss the relationship between the artworks and changing social concerns and explain meanings that contemporary viewers understood but that are lost to us today. Robert Snyder examines the complex geographic and social transformations that made New York the symbol of early twentieth-century America. Rebecca Zurier describes the lives of the six artists, tracing the way each forged a distinctive vision that related art to "real life." Together Zurier and Snyder link the work of the Ashcan artists to pressing social concerns of the time - from the changes in urban geography that transformed the nature of neighborhoods and city parks to the changing roles of men and women. Virginia Mecklenburg examines the reactions of Ashcan-era critics to the artists' work and finds a greater degree of acceptance than has often been realized

Homecoming : the art and life of William H. Johnson by Richard J Powell( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This distinctive volume focuses on the memorable paintings of noted African American modernist William Henry Johnson. Born and raised in a segregated South Carolina town, Johnson (1901-1970) became an expatriate experimental painter in Paris, then Scandinavia. As an African American working in Europe, he drew on primitivism and his travels in North Africa, exploring styles ranging from Northern European expressionism to boldly colorful narratives. Returning to New York in 1938 with his Danish wife, Johnson captured the edginess of city life in bluesy, nervous paintings. Johnson was ultimately struck with a debilitating mental illness that confined him to a state hospital for the rest of his life, virtually removing his work from the American Art scene. This book resurrects the story of one of America's most original artist
