Arshile Gorky : his life and work by Hayden Herrera( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Turkey around 1900. Vosdanik Adoian escaped the massacres of Armenians in 1915 only to watch his mother die of starvation and his family scatter in their flight from the Turks. Arriving in America in 1920, Adoian invented the pseudonym Arshile Gorky - and obliterated his past. Claiming to be a distant cousin of the novelist Maxim Gorky, he found work as an art teacher in Boston, then New York, and undertook a program of rigorous study, schooling himself in the modern painters he most admired, especially Cezanne and Picasso." "By the 1940s, Gorky had developed a style that is seen as the link between European modernism and American abstract expressionism. His masterpieces influenced the great generations of American painters who came of age after World War II, even as Gorky faced a series of personal catastrophes: a studio fire that destroyed dozens of his paintings, a wasting battle with cancer, and a car accident that temporarily paralyzed his painting arm. Further demoralized by the dissolution of his seven-year marriage, Gorky hanged himself in 1948"--Jacket
Frida Kahlo by Frida Kahlo( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and German and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frida Kahlo's paintings and person illustrate the inevitable intertwining of freedom and pain, embodying the heroic reclamation of self and the repudiation of social repression through the art-making process. She is a woman both of her time and ours. Born in 1907, on the cusp of a new century, she was a radical in imagining and then asserting a peculiarly adventuresome artistic, sexual, and political identity. In her paintings she blurred the realms of saints and shamans as well as the cosmological and the technological, often permitting shockingly personal depictions of her physical and psychological pain to bleed into the iconography of Mexico's Aztec, colonial, and revolutionary history. This overturning of traditional approaches to thinking, seeing, and fantasizing is clear in the fearless self-portraits Kahlo constructed as well as in the life she lived." "This richly illustrated catalogue features more than 80 of Kahlo's works, including the hauntingly seductive and often brutal self-portraits, as well as a selection of key portraits and still-lifes that span the years of her career, up to her death in 1954, New critical essays by Elizabeth Carpenter, Hayden Herrera, and Victor Zamudio-Taylor examine Kahlo's position within art history and visual culture. Also reproduced are more than 100 photographs that belonged to Kahlo and her husband, renowned Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, some taken by eminent photographers of the period such as Lola Alvarez Bravo, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Gisele Freund, Tina Modotti, and Nickolas Muray. More personal snapshots show Kahlo with family and friends, among them luminaries Andre Breton and Leon Trotsky, and many carry graphic inscriptions and interventions by the artist. An illustrated timeline, bibliography, and exhibition history offer added context."--Jacket

Julie Taymor's brilliantly realized movie Frida comes to life in this magnificent visual book that features more than 170 illustrations, including full-color paintings and drawings by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, archival photographs, and stunning images from the making of the film. Shot entirely on location in Mexico, Frida explores the true story of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, the larger-than-life painters who became the most acclaimed artists in Mexican history and whose tempestuous love affair, landmark journeys to America, and outrageous personalities have made them icons of the twentieth century. Included in this gorgeous book are essays by Kahlo biographer Hayden Herrera, award-winning (The Lion King) director Julie Taymor, and actress/producer Salma Hayek, who spent years shepherding this film into production. In addition to the illustrated screenplay, biographies of the real-life characters in the movie, intereviews with cast and crew members, and production notes on the locations, music, costume design, and art direction take fans behind the scenes of this seminal movie. Also featured are excerpts from the diaries and letters of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, along with fascinating quotes from many of their published biographies. Covering the years from Kahlo's unbridled high school days to her death at age 47 in 1954, Frida is a celebration of an extraordinary life that took years and years of passionate devotion to bring to the screen, and this book shows why and how that was accomplished. For fans of Frida--the artist, the woman, and the film--this book is both a fabulous treat and an invaluable collector's item
Joan Snyder by Hayden Herrera( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although Joan Snyder's compelling paintings are often placed under various art-movement umbrellas - Abstract Expressionism, Neo-Expressionism, and Feminist Art - her work has always been difficult to categorize. In the first major book on this influential artist, Hayden Herrera brings new insight to Snyder's mixed-medium works and their combination of female imagery, dynamic brush strokes, and accomplished formalism." "Through rich illustrations and illuminating text, Joan Snyder details the complex evolution of the artist's works, from her evocative brush strokes in Symphony and Summer Orange, which drip with 'rivulets of feeling,' to her slow progression toward the formal structures of grid landscapes like Symphony III, to her bold historical and political works like Women In Camps. Since the 1980s, Snyder's paintings have taken on an autobiographical and often deeply personal tone, as expressed in Love's Pale Graves. Her latest paintings, such as the majestic Women Make Lists, represent a culmination of the grief, jubilation, and, finally, transcendence that reside in the heart of Snyder's work."--BOOK JACKET

Frida fue una figura mítica creada por sí misma, el centro exótico de una esfera que incluía a amigos (en algunos casos, amantes) como Leon Trotsky y Nelson Rockefeller, Isamu Noguchi y Andre Breton, Dolores del Río y Paulette Goddard; fue esposa del gran muralista mexicano Diego Rivera y artista brillante por derecho propio. Esta biografía de la pintora mexicana nos revela a una mujer de magnetismo y originalidad legendarios, cuya vida fue tan dramática y obsesiva como las imágenes que pintaba.--Desde la descripción de la editorial

Frida : a biography of Frida Kahlo by Hayden Herrera( Recording )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and Danish and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in 1907 of a Mexican mother and a German father, Frida Kahlo's relatively short life (she died in 1954) was punctuated by the Mexican Revolution, a bout with polio, and a terrible bus accident during her teenage years. Pierced by a steel handrail, Kahlo underwent some 30 surgeries that failed to mend her, and she spent much of her life bedridden. In response, she began to paint self-portraits with the aid of a mirror suspended above her bed. Herrera's biography chronicles and critiques her artistic development and invites us into Kahlo's fascinating circle of acquaintances, including husband Diego Rivera, Andre Breton, and Pablo Picasso.--Container
