Mark Rothko : toward the light in the chapel by Annie Cohen-Solal( Book )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mark Rothko was not only one of the most influential American painters of the twentieth century; he was a scholar, an educator, and a deeply spiritual human being. Born Marcus Yakovlevich Rotkovitch, he emigrated from the Russian Empire to the United States at age ten, already well educated in the Talmud and carrying with him bitter memories of the pogroms and persecutions visited upon the Jews of Latvia. Few artists have achieved success as quickly, and by the mid-twentieth century, Rothko's artwork was being displayed in major museums throughout the world. In May 2012 his painting Orange, Red, Yellow was auctioned for nearly $87 million, setting a new Christie's record. Author Annie Cohen-Solal gained access to archival materials no previous biographer had seen. As a result, her book is an extraordinarily detailed portrait of Rothko the man and the artist, an uncommonly successful painter who was never comfortable with the idea of his art as a commodity"--

Existentialism by Jean-Paul Sartre( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was to correct common misconceptions about his thought that Sartre accepted an invitation to speak on October 29, 1945, at the Club Maintenant in Paris. The unstated objective of his lecture ("Existentialism Is a Humanism") was to expound his philosophy as a form of "existentialism," a term much bandied about at the time. Sartre asserted that existentialism was essentially a doctrine for philosophers, though, ironically, he was about to make it accessible to a general audience. The published text of his lecture quickly became one of the bibles of existentialism and made Sartre an international celebrity. The idea of freedom occupies the center of Sartre's doctrine. Man, born into an empty, godless universe, is nothing to begin with. He creates his essence - his self, his being - through the choices he freely makes ("existence precedes essence"). Were it not for the contingency of his death, he would never end. Choosing to be this or that is to affirm the value of what we choose. In choosing, therefore, we commit not only ourselves but all of mankind. This edition of Existentialism Is a Humanism is a translation of the 1996 French edition, which includes Arlette Elkaim-Sartre's introduction and a Q & A with Sartre about his lecture. Paired with "Existentialism Is a Humanism" is another seminal Sartre text, his commentary on Camus's The Stranger. In her foreword, intended for an American audience, acclaimed Sartre biographer Annie Cohen-Solal offers an assessment of both works"--Jacket

New York mid-century 1945-1965 : art, architecture, design, dance, theater, nightlife by Annie Cohen-Solal( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New York Mid-Century, 1945-1965 is the story of how the Big Apple emerged as the cultural capital of the postwar world in art, architecture, design, and the performing arts. It was a period of intense cross-fertilization, as poets and critics mixed with artists, dealers, musicians, designers, architects, actors, dancers, and choreographers. Annie Cohen-Solal, a best-selling author whose books include a biography of kingmaker art dealer Leo Castelli, brings alive the artistic ferment of those years: the legendary galleries and watering holes, the landmark exhibitions and happenings, the influential critics and collectors, and the artists themselves, from Abstract Expressionists Pollock, Rothko, de Kooning, and Kline, to Color Field artists Frankenthaler, Noland, and Louis, to Johns and Rauschenberg, to Minimalists Judd and Flavin, to Pop Artists Oldenburg, Lichtenstein, and Warhol. Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic Paul Goldberger guides us on a tour of the Modernist masterpieces that gave the city a sleek new profile: Gordon Bunshaft's Lever House, Mies van der Rohe's Seagram Building, Le Corbusier and Wallace Harrison's United Nations, Philip Johnson's Four Seasons restaurant and New York State Pavilion at the 1964 World's Fair, Frank Lloyd Wright's Guggenheim Museum, Eero Saarinen's TWA Terminal at Idlewild Airport, and of course, Lincoln Center, New York's answer to the great piazzas of the world. He also takes us into the swank shops, offices, and apartments of the era, the furnishings designed by Modernist icons from Charles and Ray Eames to Florence Knoll and George Nelson, and he tantalizes us with the work of the pioneering advertising executives, graphic designers, and photographers who gave the period that Mad Men look. He concludes the section with a lively recounting of the philosophical battle between the urban planners who believed in tearing down and building anew (the Robert Moses camp) and the preservationists who believed in retaining the character of old neighborhoods (the Jane Jacobs camp). And finally, Robert Gottlieb, former editor of The New Yorker and current dance critic of The New York Observer, invites us to the theater, both on and off Broadway, to relive the heyday of the musical, from Carousel to The King and I, from My Fair Lady to West Side Story, as well as the searing dramas of Williams, Albee, and Miller, and Joseph Papp's wildly innovative Shakespeare in the Park productions; to the great jazz clubs of Harlem and 52nd Street to meet the likes of Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Billie Holiday, and Dizzy Gillespie; to the studios and stages of the dance world, where George Balanchine and the New York City Ballet were revolutionizing ballet and Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, José Limón, Paul Taylor, and Alwin Nikolais were wowing audiences with the purely American idiom of modern dance; and to the legendary cabarets and nightclubs, from the Blue Angel and Café Society Downtown to the Latin Quarter and Copacabana, where stars as diverse as Pearl Bailey, Barbra Streisand, Mike Nichols and Elaine May, Harry Belafonte, Carol Burnett, and Woody Allen got their start. And when all the art exhibits, plays, revues, and dance performances come to an end, Mr. Gottlieb treats us to nightcaps at the Stork Club and El Morocco."--Publisher's description

La valeur de l'art contemporain by Annie Cohen-Solal( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in French and Undetermined and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ce livre est présenté par Annie Cohen-Solal, docteure ès lettres, professeur à l'université de Caen-Normandie et chargée de cours à l'École normale supérieure. Elle est l'auteure d'une biographie de Jean-Paul Sartre, traduite dans plus de quinze langues. Son dernier ouvrage est consacré à Mark Rothko (Actes Sud, 2013). Ce volume est coordonné par Cristelle Terroni, agrégée d'anglais, docteure en civilisation américaine et ATER à l'université Paris-Est Créteil. Elle est l'auteure de New York seventies. Avant-garde et espaces alternatifs (Presses universitaires de Rennes, 2015). Ont contribué à cet ouvrage Annie Cohen-Solal, Anne Martin-Fugier, Nathalie Moureau, Cléa Patin et Cristelle Terroni. Depuis son émergence clans les années 1970, l'art contemporain se confronte à la question de sa valeur, dans le double sens du terme : la contestation des normes esthétiques traditionnelles a, d'une part, rendu difficile l'attribution d'une valeur artistique stable à des oeuvres n'ayant pas encore fait l'épreuve du temps, tandis que le marché de l'art établit, d'autre part, ses propres critères, en valorisant avant tout la nouveauté et l'originalité. Le décrochage entre valeur économique et valeur artistique semble ainsi être devenu l'une des caractéristiques de l'art contemporain. Loin des polémiques, cet ouvrage propose de comprendre les processus d'évaluation de l'oeuvre contemporaine à partir des acteurs du monde de l'art."--Page 4 of cover

New York mid-century : post-war capital of culture, 1945-1965 by Annie Cohen-Solal( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of how the Big Apple emerged as the cultural capital of the postwar world in all fields of creative endeavour art, architecture, design, music, theatre and dance. It was a period of intense cross-fertilization, as poets and critics mixed with artists, dealers, musicians, designers, architects, dancers, and choreographers. Richly illustrated with hundreds of paintings, drawings, photographs, elevations, plans, posters, programmes and ephemera, this is a stirring evocation of a remarkably fertile period in the city's history, the styles and aesthetics of which are now very much back in vogue
Mark Rothko by Annie Cohen-Solal( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pendant l'année 2011, Mark Rothko (1903-1970) devint le héros de Red, une pièce de théâtre à succès sur Broadway qui gagna six Tony Awards, tandis que, dans les maisons de ventes aux enchères, la cote de ses tableaux n'en finissait pas de monter, dépassant celle de ses collègues américains de la même période Pollock, de Kooning, Newman, Still. Quant aux expositions de ses oeuvres, elles circulent dans les musées du monde entier, attirant un public de plus en plus enthousiaste. Né Marcus Rotkovitch à Dvinsk, dans l'Empire russe, il émigre à l'âge de dix ans aux États-Unis, emportant avec lui son éducation talmudique comme ses souvenirs des pogroms et des persécutions de son enfance. Il a tout juste trente ans lorsqu'on lui offre sa première exposition individuelle et, dès les années 1950, il est célébré au MoMA, à l'Art Institute de Chicago, ainsi que dans les plus grands musées européens. Alors que le judaïsme n'a produit que très peu d'artistes plasticiens jusqu'au XX ̀siècle, l'héritage laissé par Rothko éclate sans conteste aujourd'hui. Son oeuvre la plus aboutie est sans aucun doute la chapelle Rothko, un lieu de méditation oecuménique à Houston, Texas. Dans ce livre, Annie Cohen-Solal dévoile la trajectoire de cet artiste majeur qui fut également un érudit, un intellectuel, un éducateur et, bien sûr, un passeur, dont la dimension spirituelle reste ancrée dans la complexité et la richesse de sa propre généalogie."--Page 4 of cover
