Je suis le cahier : the sketchbooks of Picasso by Pablo Picasso( Book )

51 editions published between 1986 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 1,469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Picasso considered all of his works to be entries in his diary; he excluded nothing. The sketchbooks are generic chapters inextricable from his oeuvre. In Picasso's paintings the spontaneity of gesture is deceptive since the manner is which he leaves his tracks visible superficially suggests minimal preparation. Although most of Picasso's solutions appear to be immediately worked out on the canvas, this was far from the fact. Many paintings sprang fully formed as the fulfillment of preconscious models, but very often others were the product of the process of trial solution and discovery through drawing. There are eight sketchbooks for Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, five for the saltimbanques, four for the Luncheon on the Grass series, and two for The rape of the Sabines. In sketchbook No. 171, Picasso inscribed: "La peinture est plus forte que moi elle me fait faire ce qu'elle veut" ("Painting is stronger than I am; it makes me do what it wants"). The sketchbook itself is the statement's validation."--Publisher

Picasso and Braque go to the movies( Visual )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film advances an interesting thesis: if the static visual arts affected early cinema's vocabulary, did moving pictures inspire Cubism's two towering giants, Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque? Cinema and Cubism were born during the birth of modernity itself, and filmmaker Arne Glimcher argues that films, from the earliest days of Thomas Edison and the Lumière Brothers, were a crucial formative influence on Modern painting, particularly on Picasso and Braque. The movies' revolutionary portrayal of time, space, and motion was the engine behind the modernist revolution in fine art. Through interviews with art historians, practicing plastic and visual artists, poets, and filmmakers, it traces the effects of technological revolution--specifically the invention of aviation and the creation of cinema--and their interdependent influence on the art dubbed Modern

Agnes Martin : paintings, writings, remembrances by Agnes Martin( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Agnes Martin's career spanned over seven decades. Though a major influence on Minimalist painters, Martin saw her own work, more closely related to Abstract Expressionism, her paintings being 'meditations on innocence, beauty, happiness and love.' More than 130 of these works can be found in this book. Agnes Martin: Paintings, Writings, Remembrances is the first and only complete career retrospective of the visionary painter. This important and beautiful book brings together 130 of Martin's paintings and drawings, with her previously unpublished writings and lecture notes, which vividly illuminate her art. Letters and facsimiles are reprinted in Martin's own hand, and cut to notebook size, adding an element of intimacy for the reader. The Pace Gallery founder, Arne Glimcher's illuminating introduction, his personal remembrances of visits to Martin at her studio, and their correspondence throughout her career, reveal much about the artist's life and work." -- Publisher's description
