Philip Guston retrospective by Philip Guston( Book )

21 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, the most comprehensive survey of Guston's art to date, is published on the occasion of a major international exhibition. It brings together for the first time the different bodies of the artist's work, exposing the connective threads between each of his developmental stages. In-depth essays by a noted group of critics and art historians explore Guston's early influences and the emergence of symbols that resurfaced and played prominent roles in his late work. They provide insight into Guston's philosophy regarding abstraction, his role within its development, and the social and art historical context from which his so-called "Klan" paintings emerged. In addition, one of Guston's own essays on art and innovation is reprinted." "Also included are selections of drawings that act as both prelude and restatement at each stage of the artist's career; a number of works from Guston's Estate that have never been exhibited before and that shed new light on his development; an extensive illustrated chronology of the artist's life and career; and a comprehensive bibliography."--Jacket
Abstraction, geometry, painting : selected geometric abstract painting in America since 1945( Book )

22 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first book to fully explore the diverse perspectives that have formed one of the most significant developments in postwar American art-geometric abstract painting. Heavily influenced by the radical geometry of Piet Mondrian, the American Abstract Artists group of the 1930s and 1940s, and the geometric side of Abstract Expressionism, geometric abstraction has had a profound and controversial effect since it first came to American in the mid-1940s. Reproduced here are 81 illustrations, including 55 in full colour, by 25 of the most important artists to work in America. Michael Auping's essay traces the evolution of the movement and places it in relation to a larger twentieth-century tradition. Iluminating statements by the artists accompany reproductions, and a comprehensive bibliography for each artist, including a list of one-person and group exhibitions, rounds out the volume. INSIDE COVER JACKET
Anselm Kiefer : heaven and earth by Anselm Kiefer( Book )

19 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A retrospective volume of Anselm Kiefer's work, this book addresses the artist's entire career through the lens of one compelling theme." "From his earliest sculptures to his recent highly textured paintings, Anselm Kiefer has woven themes of heaven and earth into his work, exploring the polarities of these ideas while struggling to define the transcendent quality that places art squarely in between. Destruction and rebirth, glory and shame, sin and redemption all figure largely in Kiefer's often controversial depictions of Germany's physical and cultural landscape. This book of more than fifty reproductions includes Kiefer's first work, The Heavens, as well as numerous other rare early works and recent works being presented for the first time. It features an interview with the artist, which is accompanied by rich black-and-white photographs of his ongoing monumental installations on his property in Barjac, France."--Jacket

Arshile Gorky : the breakthrough years by Dore Ashton( Book )

18 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michael Auping's valuable text provides an introduction to the life and art of Arshile Gorky as well as an insightful consideration of the grand psychological landscape The Liver is the Cock's Comb, 1944, a work pivotal to the development of Gorky's style. Dore Ashton writes a lucid account of this artist who tends to resist classification, contributing an art historical overview of Gorky's appreciation of such modern innovators of abstraction and Surrealism as Miro and Kandinsky. Matthew Spender provides biographical details of Gorky's early years, while a selection of Gorky's personal letters further sheds an intimate light on the artist and his achievements
Lucian Freud portraits by Sarah Howgate( Book )

26 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and French and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Portraits were central to the work of Lucian Freud (1922-2011). Working only from life, the artists claimed, "I could never put anything into a picture that wasn't actually there in front of me." This major retrospective catalogue surveys Freud's portraits across the seven decades of his career. Featuring the finest portraits from public and private collections around the world, the book explores the stylistic development and remarkable technical virtuosity of an artist regarded as one of the most innovative figurative painters the medium has known. Freud's chosen subjects were often his intimates--family members, friends, and artistic colleagues such as Frank Auerbach, Francis Bacon, Leigh Bowery, and David Hockney. Freud was a private man who rarely gave interviews, and his thoughts on the complex relationship between artist and sitter and the challenges of painting nudes and self-portraits are published here for the first time, documented in a series of interviews with Michael Auping, conducted between May 2009 and January 2011. An illustrated chronology of the artist's life provides fascinating insights into Freud's background as a grandson of Sigmund Freud, and his unorthodox artistic education

Phenomenal : California light, space, surface by Michael Auping( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1960s and 1970s, a loosely affiliated group of Los Angeles artists--including Larry Bell, Mary Corse, Robert Irwin, James Turrell, and Doug Wheeler--more intrigued by questions of perception than by the crafting of discrete objects, embraced light as their primary medium. Whether by directing the flow of natural light, embedding artificial light within objects or architecture, or playing with light through the use of reflective, translucent, or transparent materials, each of these artists created situations capable of stimulating heightened sensory awareness in the receptive viewer. Phenomenal: California Light, Space, Surface, companion book to the exhibition of the same name, explores and documents the unique traits of the phenomenologically engaged work produced in Southern California during those decades and traces its ongoing influence on current generations of international artists
