Surrealism in exile and the beginning of the New York school by Martica Sawin ( Book )
14 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this fascinating, detailed account of what was happening within Surrealism during the crucial years 1938-1947, Sawin documents the cultural transfer that took place when the greater part of the prewar Surrealist group was transplanted to the Western Hemisphere. Sawin's year-by-year narrative pieces together when and how the refugees arrived and their various points of contact with the future abstract expressionists. It documents conclusively the roots of the New York School - a hybrid of startling vigor that brought world attention to the new American art for the first time - the evolution of the artworks involved, and the last brilliant flowering of Surrealist art. Interwoven with the text are 250 photographs of people, places, and artworks

Nell Blaine : her art and life by Martica Sawin ( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This joyous volume, illustrating more than fifty years of work, also recounts - often in Blaine's own words - the artist's life history, from her excitement when a pair of eyeglasses suddenly allowed her to see the world around her at the age of two; to the thrill of her escape to New York at the age of nineteen; to the inspiring story of Blaine's heroic victory over the polio that almost killed her in 1959. It is also invaluable as a history of the postwar community of artists, writers, and musicians with whom Blaine lived, worked, and traveled
Alan Gussow : a painter's nature by Martica Sawin ( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Stephen Pace by Martica Sawin ( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Critical and biographical text summarize the artist's life and art from his early forceful abstract expressionist canvases to the luminous representational paintings of recent decades. Recollections of Depression-era farm life and vignettes of coastal Maine display Pace's radiant colour and agile capacity to distill the essence of a subject in succinct and telling strokes. - Publisher
Brian Rutenberg by Brian Rutenberg ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The landscape, complex in its layers, has guided abstract painter Brian Rutenberg's approach to composition and color for the entire development of his career. He draws on the landscape that he remembers from childhood, growing up between Pawleys Island and Charleston, South Carolina, where the rivers and lakes join the ocean. He adds to this a strong influence from the music of Glenn Gould and Celtic culture, as well as the painters Joan Mitchell and Hans Hofman. The resulting work elicits a profoundly visceral experience as he reinvents abstraction with a sense of spirituality." "This volume is the most comprehensive presentation of his work to date; it includes more than 90 illustrations of his paintings and drawings."--BOOK JACKET

James Marston Fitch : selected writings 1933-1997 by James Marston Fitch ( Book )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Revered as the father of historic preservation in the United States, architect James Marston Fitch was hailed by the New York Times at the time of his death in 2000 as "an architect whose writings and teachings helped transform historic preservation from a dilettante's pastime into a vigorous, broadly based cultural movement." In this anthology of his writings, spanning over sixty years of his professional career, Fitch's incisive ideas and observations on a range of subjects are brought to light in a single, readable volume. Whether a lament of the loss of functionalism in the wake of modernism, a celebration of the architectural perfection embodied in the University of Virginia campus, or an appeal to architects to heed factors of climate and environment in their designs, Fitch's essays are both provocative and pragmatic and always deeply rooted in the human element. In the face of contemporary concerns such as suburban sprawl, energy expenditure, and environmental degradation, Fitch's writings resonate today more than ever."--Publisher's website
