Chihuly by Diane Charbonneau( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in French and English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dale Chihuly has been exploring the plastic potential of blown glass for more than 40 years. His spectacular pieces challenge the apparent fragility of the medium and transport us to a magical world. This exquisite volume follows Chihuly's career through photographs of his series works as well as his monumental site-specific installations. Inspired by nature, Chihuly's pieces explode with color and vibrate with life. Their expressiveness and spontaneity recall Jackson Pollock's action paintings, yet their visceral physicality and playfulness have made these pieces some of the most broadly acclaimed works in contemporary art. As this book shows, Chihuly's work is at once mesmerizing, thought provoking, and visually seductive

Otto Dix by Otto Dix( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and French and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than almost any other German painter, Otto Dix and his works have profoundly influenced the popular notion of the Weimar Republic. His paintings were among the most graphic visual representatives of that period, exposing with unsparing and wicked wit the instability and contradictions of the time." "The particular role that Dix played as an artist in the Weimar Republic can only be understood against the backdrop of the painter's experiences during the First World War, from 1914 to 1918. The essay in the present volume by Dietrich Schubert discusses this theme using Dix's war-era self-portraits as examples. The artist's wartime experiences also shaped his shockingly brutal depictions of sexual attitudes and his paintings of prostitutes, the subject of another of the essays in this publication." "This catalogue accompanies an exhibition that will run from March 11 through August 30, 2010, at Neue Galerie New York, before travelling to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, where it will be on view from September 24, 2010, to January 2, 2011. It includes the paintings that Dix is best known for - paintings from the so-called "golden Weimar years"--But to contextualize them, it also includes Dix's work from the early 1920s, as well as his later more allegorical work, produced as veiled protest against the Third Reich."--Jacket

Metamorphoses in Rodin's studio by Auguste Rodin( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Metamorphoses in Rodin's studio reveals the work of Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) and the materials he used to accomplish it, along with his collaborators, models, studio assistants and founders, as observed by eyewitnesses, photographers and writers. The theme of metamorphosis plunges us directly into the secrets of the studio to unveil the constantly shifting creative process of this revolutionary sculptor. Rodin is a pivotal figure not only because of his expression, of a rare emotional and psychological complexity, but also because of his profound renewal of the language of sculptural practice. One of the most striking aspects of his vision lies in his ascribing greater value to the act of creation, which he placed in the forefront, than to the imperious dogma of a necessarily completed work: no sculpture was ever immutably final in Rodin's mind
