Diane Arbus : a biography by Patricia Bosworth( Book )

36 editions published between 1984 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 2,101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like Frida Kahlo and Georgia O'Keeffe, Diane Arbus exerts a fascination rooted in both her art and her life. Her startling photographic images of dwarfs, twins, transvestites, and freaks seemed from the first to redefine both the normal and the abnormal in our lives; they were already becoming part of the iconography of the age when Arbus committed suicide in 1971. Although her work continues to fascinate viewers years after her death, Arbus herself has remained an enigma." "In this first full biography, Patricia Bosworth examines the life and the world behind Arbus's eerie, mesmerizing images: the pampered New York childhood, her passionate marriage to Allan Arbus and their work together as fashion photographers during the fifties; her years as a conventional wife and mother; the emotional upheaval surrounding the end of her marriage; and the radically dark, liberating, and ultimately tragic turn her art took during the sixties. Bosworth's book is a compassionate portrait of the woman behind some of the most powerful photographs of our time."--Jacket

The men in my life : a memoir of love and art in 1950s Manhattan by Patricia Bosworth( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Acclaimed biographer Patricia Bosworth delivers a tale of family, marriage, tragedy, Broadway, and art, featuring a rich cast of well-known literary and theatrical figures from a golden era--New York in the 1950s. Bosworth and her soulmate, her brother, Bart Jr.--born into privilege in San Francisco as the children of famous attorney Bartley Crum and novelist Gertrude Bosworth Crum--lead charmed lives until their father's career is ruined when he defends the Hollywood Ten. The family moves to New York, where they entertain literary luminaries and the greatest artists of the day, but Bosworth's father finds it difficult to get work and his alcoholism worsens, while her mother lives in total denial. The family suffers even greater tragedy when Bart Jr. commits suicide. In the wake of her brother's death, Bosworth, a student at Sarah Lawrence, makes a life for herself in the glamorous art world of New York City. Married and divorced from an abusive husband before she's twenty, Bosworth joins the famed Actors Studio where she takes classes with Lee Strasberg alongside Marilyn Monroe, Paul Newman, and others. She works on Broadway opposite Paul Muni, Helen Hayes, and Elaine Stritch; Gore Vidal and Elia Kazan become her mentors. At the zenith of her career, about to film The Nun's Story with Audrey Hepburn, Bosworth faces a decision that will change her life forever. Full of fascinating, never-before-told tales and deep insight, The Men in My Life is a beautifully rendered and utterly engaging account by an insider who defied repressive 1950s conventions while being shaped by the notable men in her life--a story about survival, achieving your goals, and learning to love."--Jacket
Dreamer with a thousand thrills : Tom Palumbo, the rediscovered photographs by Patricia Bosworth( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the 1950s and 60s, Tom Palumbo was part of an influential group of young photographers working for the best fashion magazines in America - Harper's Bazaar and Vogue. Tom perfected his craft under the guidance of legends like Alexey Brodovitch, Carmel Snow, Diana Vreeland, and Alex Liberman. Tom's serene style contrasted with Richard Avedon's jazzed-up images and Lillian Bassman's soft blurred effects. Often Tom's particular layouts provided the balance in an issue. His pictures invariably enhanced the fashions of the 50s, where women were thought of as objects of worship, and beauty was thought of as an ideal. Tom photographed every day, producing unique images like jazz legend Miles Davis laughing. He loved taking pictures of artists like next-door neighbors Comden and Green; the young Mia Farrow and Jane Fonda; novelist Jack Kerouac. Late in life, Tom worked in theatre. But to him there was never much difference in the photographs he took or the plays he directed since both contained drama. Paradox and revelation-these two elements energized Tom Palumbo's life. These rediscovered photographs, celebrated in their time but not seen in decades, are presented here in book form for the first time ever, by award-winning author and Palumbo's widow, Patricia Bosworth--Publisher's description
