"In this book, Harry Cooper, an authority on Mondrian's art, and Ron Spronk, an expert on the technical examination of paintings, investigate the artist's unusual working method during this period.

Ellsworth Kelly : the early drawings, 1948-1955 by Yve-Alain Bois( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are some exceptions, of course; in particular, Yve-Alain Bois is an art historian who has worked consciously as a critic, even when writing about the art of the past. Essays like those in his book Painting as Model (MIT, 1990), especially the ones on Matisse, Polish Unism, or Barnett Newman, have been exemplary in showing how the historian’s empirical and methodological scrupulousness can be inseparable from the critic’s indispensable leap into interpretive speculation. Among currently productive artists, the ones with whom Bois seems to have the deepest affinity are Robert Ryman and Ellsworth Kelly. On the latter, Bois has previously written in the catalogue Ellsworth Kelly: The Years in France (Neues,1992) and in the catalogue for a 1994-95 exhibition of new work in London and New York. Now he examines Kelly’s French years again in his densely detailed introduction to the catalogue for an exhibition that began its tour at Harvard last year

Mastery & elegance : two centuries of French drawings from the collection of Jeffrey E. Horvitz by Alvin L Clark( Book )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The leading French artists of the period - Jacques-Charles Bellange, Jacques Callot, Simon Vouet, Claude Lorrain, Nicolas Poussin, Jean-Antoine Watteau, Jean-Baptiste-Simeon Chardin, Francois Boucher, Jean-Honore Fragonard, and Jacques-Louis David - are all here, but the importance of the collection lies in its broad representation of the many brilliant draftsmen active during these two crucial centuries in the history of French art. The catalogue incorporates the results of years of research on these drawings and will make a significant contribution to this relatively unstudied field

Long life cool white : photographs & essays by Moyra Davey( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photographer Moyra Davey takes quiet but ravishing photographs of typically overlooked and banal objects. Newspapers, dust, books, money, empty bottles, and the things on top of refrigerators all figure in series of pictures that bring viewers into a state of increased sensitivity to their everyday lives. Long Life Cool White features forty-five of the artist’s photographs from the past two decades. Davey’s relationship to such traditions as street and conceptual photography and French surrealism can be seen throughout these pages. Noted scholar Helen Molesworth examines the domestic content of Davey’s work as well as Davey’s burgeoning career as a writer. The book also includes Davey’s insightful essay “Notes on Photography and Accident,” in which she discusses the themes of chance, death, and the poetic that occur in the writings of three major theorists of photography: Roland Barthes, Walter Benjamin, and Susan Sontag
