O'Keeffe's O'Keeffes : the artist's collection by Barbara Buhler Lynes( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,066 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Georgia O'Keeffe was one of America's pre-eminent artists, and the first to experiment with abstraction, though she never abandoned her deep response to and observation of nature. Enormously popular, she became identified and respected as an independent spirit for both her art and her life." "This book explores the significance of O'Keeffe's collection of her own work. Approximately 75 seminal works, dating from about 1910 to the end of the 1960s document the range and quality of the art that O'Keeffe either chose to retain in her estate or consciously distributed in her lifetime as bequests. It provides a unique perspective from which to understand O'Keeffe as artist and collector."--Jacket
Milton Avery : the late paintings by Robert Hobbs( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The painter Milton Avery is the among the most beloved of American artists. A cool modernist, he is known chiefly for his vividly colored landscapes and intimate scenes of family life. Long overshadowed by Abstract Expressionism, his art has recently begun to be reassessed and its place in the history of modernism restored." "Robert Hobbs explores the development of Avery's painting in this crucial phase and draws insightful connections between it and Wallace Stevens's innovative poetry, written during the same period. This comparison will intrigue devotees of American poetry and American art." "A 1958 essay on Avery by the renowned critic Clement Greenberg, reprinted here, places the artist in the vanguard of an art that unites abstraction and representation, American ingenuity and an international sensibility. Altogether, this book takes a many-faceted approach to the presentation of an exquisite group of artworks."--Jacket

Color rush : American color photography from Stieglitz to Sherman by Katherine A Bussard( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From magazine pages to gallery walls, from advertisements to photojournalism, Color Rush charts the history of color photography in the United States from the moment it became available as a mass medium to the moment when it no longer seemed an unusual choice for artists. The book begins with the 1907 unveiling of autochrome, the first commercially available color process, and continues up through the 1981 landmark survey show and book The New Color Photography, which hailed the widespread acceptance of color photography in contemporary art. Color Rush brings together Ansel Adams, William Eggleston, Eliot Porter, Cindy Sherman, Edward Steichen, Stephen Shore, and many more."--Publisher's website
Gabriele Münter : the years of expressionism, 1903-1920 by Reinhold Heller( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of Gabriele Munter (1877-1962) shines like a jewel in the male-dominated avant-garde Expressionist movement. Most accounts of the frenetically creative years in Munich and Murnau fail to recognize the uniqueness of Munter's vision: her work is unjustly eclipsed by that of her colleagues, not least Vassily Kandinsky's. This book redresses the balance. Some one hundred of the artist's most seminal works are reproduced in this lavishly illustrated volume; they include several from private collections that have never before been published. Gabriele Munter: The Years of Expressionism, 1903-1920 is an exploration of Munter's crucial contribution to German Expressionism in the genres of landscape, portrait and still-life painting. Her place and significance in the development of this movement are critically examined, with particular attention paid to the iconography of her paintings and the lyrical strength of her work
Jan Lievens : a Dutch master rediscovered by Arthur K Wheelock( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jan Lievens (1607-1674) was one of the most fascinating and enigmatic Dutch artists of the 17th century. Daring and innovative as a painter, printmaker, and draftsman, he created powerful character studies, genre scenes, landscapes, formal portraits, and religious and allegorical images that were widely praised and valued during his lifetime. This beautiful book, the first overview of the full range of Lievens' career, features more than 50 paintings - many of them newly discovered in private collections - and more than 75 prints and drawings, providing a reassessment of his place in the history of art." "Lievens began his career in his native Leiden, where he worked closely with his compatriot Rembrandt, who admired and collected Lievens' works. Lievens then moved to London, Antwerp, and Amsterdam, and his peripatetic career and multitude of working styles, say the authors of this book, may explain why his reputation today is not as high as it should be. This book offers a necessary corrective, returning to Lievens the esteem he deserves."--Jacket

For centuries, China's Forbidden City has captured the world's imagination.

This title gives an analysis of the garden, which is one of the most refined and elegant of imperial Chinese gardens
Rembrandt and his time : masterworks from the Albertina, Vienna by Marian Bisanz-Prakken( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In conjunction with the 400th anniversary of Rembrandt's birth in 2006, the Milwaukee Art Museum presents an exhibition of many of the greatest drawings and prints ever produced by Netherlandish artists. The exhibition and this accompanying publication include 112 masterworks on paper from the Albertina in Vienna - one of the finest graphic arts collections in the world. The book, which features twenty-seven important works by one of the greatest masters of all time, explores the pivotal and influential role of Rembrandt as a draftsman in mid-seventeenth-century Holland. His iconic images demonstrate his exceptional facility in different media and with a variety of subject matter - landscape, religious themes, and studies of everyday life." "Equally significant are a number of drawings by Roelant Savery, David Vinckboons, Jacques de Gheyn II, Hendrick Avercamp, Jan van Goyen, and Esaias van de Velde that provide the earliest examples of an emerging naturalism. There are also works by Rembrandt's contemporaries, followers, and by later artists whose innovative approach to recording the Dutch world takes the work of Rembrandt a step further. These artists include Jan Lievens, Lambert Doomer, Philips Koninck, Nicolaes Maes, Salomon de Bray, Govaert Flinck, and Adriaen van Ostade. Marine themes and Italianate landscapes are also explored as a means of fully explaining Rembrandt's broad influence."--Jacket
Kandinsky : a retrospective by Angela Lampe( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This spectacular five-decade survey of paintings, drawings and prints by Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) features over 100 works drawn primarily from the outstanding collections of the Centre Pompidou and the Milwaukee Art Museum. The comprehensive catalogue traces the artist's development from his formative period in Munich and his co-founding of the Blue Rider group and pivotal turn towards abstraction, to his return to Russia during the war, to his prolific work at the Weimar Bauhaus and final years in Paris. New scholarship illuminates murals Kandinsky designed in 1922, contextualizing this project at the transition from his Russian period to his time at the Bauhaus, where he taught mural painting and plunged fully into abstraction. Close examination of the works of art, Kandinsky's rich body of theoretical texts, and their pedagogical significance provides the foundation for essays on the celebrated artist's promotion of abstraction and on the reception of his work in the 21st century; today his artistic and theoretical output continues to inspire students, scholars and artists. Short texts on key works of art and timelines generously enhanced by archival photographs augment the catalogue.

Leonardo da Vinci and the splendor of Poland : a history of collecting and patronage by Laurie Winters( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents an array of Western European and Polish paintings from Poland's most important national and private museums. A testimony to the remarkable history of collecting and patronage in Poland, the book showcases Leonardo da Vinci's magnificent Lady with an Ermine (Portrait of Cecilia Gallerani), but also includes important works by Hans Memling, Jusepe de Ribera, Bernardo Bellotto, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Elisabeth-Louise Vigee-LeBrun, Johann Friedrich Overbeck, and others." "In addition to commentary on each painting, the book brings to light Poland's long-overlooked cultural history."--Jacket
Elusive signs : Bruce Nauman works with light by Joseph D Ketner( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intrigued and inspired by the neon beer signs on shopfronts in his San Francisco neighborhood, Bruce Nauman created his first neon piece, Window or Wall Sign, in 1967. He wanted, he said, to achieve "an art that would kind of disappear--that was supposed to not quite look like art." Light offered Nauman a medium both elusive and effervescent, but one that could also aggressively convey a message. Over the first three decades of his career, Nauman used the medium of light to explore the twists and turns of perception, logic, and meaning with the earnest playfulness that characterizes all his art. Elusive Signs focuses on the discrete body of Nauman's work that uses neon and fluorescent light in signs and room installations, and includes images of nearly all Nauman's work with light. After Window or Wall Sign, Nauman embarked on a series of neons that grappled with the semiotics of body and identity, and with My Name as Though it Were Written on the Surface of the Moon (1968), he forces the viewer to contemplate the role of naming in forming identity. Language--signs and symbols--plays an important role in Nauman's art. His later neon works emphasize the neon as a sign, presenting provocative twists of language and offering harsh and humorous sociopolitical commentary in such pieces as Run from Fear, Fun from Rear (1972). This series culminates in the monumental, billboard-size One Hundred Live and Die (1984), which employs overwhelming scale to bombard the viewer with sardonic aphorisms. In incisive essays that accompany the images of Nauman's work, Joseph Ketner II of the Milwaukee Art Museum (which originated the exhibit this book accompanies) and critics Janet Kraynak and Gregory Volk analyze the works in light both as a body of work and as an access point to Nauman's entire career

Byrdcliffe : an American arts and crafts colony by Ellen Denker( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Byrdcliffe was, and remains, a place of haunting beauty. One hundred years ago, it was established as an Arts and Crafts colony in the heart of the Catskill Mountains. Craftsmen, writers, and musicians came, lured by the atmosphere of creativity amid like-minded people. Furniture, pottery, paintings, metalwork, and textiles were all made there and the people themselves became an interwoven part of the fabric of the place. This is the story of the first years of the colony, the artists who visited, and the artistic community they fostered in Woodstock, New York."--BOOK JACKET
