Latin American art in the twentieth century by Edward J Sullivan( Book )

28 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and held by 1,249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first comprehensive survey of an important and increasingly popular field. Because each of the contributors is an expert on his or her own national art, it is also the first to present a genuinely Latin American viewpoint. Seventeen scholars, critics and curators provide an exciting and challenging new assessment of twentieth-century Latin American art. The wider public and scholars alike will welcome the full and authoritative treatment of the different histories and cultural traditions that have given each country its own character. Major artists such as Wifredo Lam, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Fernando Botero are seen in a wider context, and the exploration of the rich and important heritage of previously overlooked countries such as Ecuador, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Paraguay and Bolivia will be a revelation to many. Springing from complex cultural roots, Latin American art is fresh, varied and often startling in its originality. Its range and quality are here represented in over 300 outstanding images
The Baroque world of Fernando Botero by John Sillevis( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 867 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Accompanying the artist's first American retrospective in more than thirty years, The Baroque World of Fernando Botero is the most extensive study of his life and work to date. Drawn exclusively from Botero's private collection, the one hundred works featured in this book, including previously unpublished paintings and drawings, represent the full scope of his oeuvre from a uniquely personal perspective. Many of these - portraits of friends and family members and remembered scenes - have remained in the artist's possession since their creation, while others he has bought back over the years as markers of significant developments in his career. Three essays examine the artist's creative life, from the aesthetic environment in which Botero developed his unique style to his catalyzing influence on the Colombian art world of the 1960s and '70s."--Jacket

The language of objects in the art of the Americas by Edward J Sullivan( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book consists of a series of individual yet interrelated studies about the development of art and visual culture in the Americas. The main geographical and cultural focus is on the Spanish- and Portuguese- speaking nations, as well as the regions of the United States that possess a substantial population identifying with their Mexican, Cuban, Puerto Rican, or other Latino backgrounds"--Page viii

Fernando Botero : drawings and watercolors by Edward J Sullivan( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The drawings and watercolors handsomely illustrated in this volume provide a comprehensive overview of Fernando Botero's work in this media, which has seldom been reproduced. An introductory essay by Prof. Edward J. Sullivan of New York University, and biographical notes complete the catalogue and provide a framework for these superb but less well-known works by Botero. With consummate technical ability, this important twentieth century artist has revived the use of ancient materials: sanguine, charcoal, sepia pencil, wash and ink. Most of his drawings are executed on paper, sometimes on canvas, with great attention paid to the quality of the support. Botero uses a variety of drawing techniques. Some pieces are preparatory drawings for entire compositions - usually quick sketches of a drawing or sculpture - but the majority are independent works of art that rarely, if ever, repeat a composition the artist has executed in oils. Botero draws with affection. Each stroke of the pen or brush is applied with the knowledge that it will create another small but important part of the rich world populated by sensuous figures that has evolved throughout the years in the imagination of the artist. These drawings compel us to confront Botero's art and personality even more directly than in his paintings. In examining them with care, we are privileged to receive a glimpse into the creative mind and fertile imagination of this master. Looking at his drawings we can almost follow the genesis of the artist's ideas. It is as if we were seated at his side in intimate dialogue with him, watching his hand create the simulacra of his inner imagination
Carmen Herrera : lines of sight by Dana Miller( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cuban-born artist Carmen Herrera (b. 1915) has painted for more than seven decades, though it is only in recent years that acclaim for her work has catapulted the artist to international prominence. This handsome volume offers the first sustained examination of her early career from 1948 to 1978, which spans the art worlds of Havana, Paris, and New York. Essays consider the artist's early studies in Cuba, her involvement with the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles in postwar Paris, and her groundbreaking New York output, as well as situate her work in the context of a broader Latin American avant-garde art. An essay by Dana Miller considers Herrera's New York work of the 1950s through the 1970s, when Herrera was arriving at and perfecting her signature style. Personal family photographs from Herrera's archive enrich the narrative, and a chronology addressing the entirety of her life and career features additional documentary images. Over eighty works are illustrated as color plates, making this book the most extensive representation of Herrera's work to date."
Latin American women artists = artistas latinoamericanas : 1915-1995( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Catalog of the exhibit sponsored by the Philip Morris Companies, organized by the Milwaukee Art Museum. Pérez de Mendiola provides perhaps the best and most enlightening text. As a whole, the exhibit appears to be extremely uneven due to the questionable inclusion of certain artists and the notable absence of other, more relevant artists. The personal preferences of the curators and advisors are too obviously perceived. Illustrated in b/w and color. Complemented with annotations about each of the 35 artists included"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
Claudio Bravo : paintings and drawings (1964/2004) by Paul Bowles( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Arranged in more or less chronological order, this newly updated volume traces Claudio Bravo's four decades of painting and drawing, covering his use of color, which seems to become more extravagant with the passage of time, and the increasingly mysterious arrangement of objects in his photo-perfect still lifes. A marvelous technician, Bravo has a great knack for surprise and a bold sense of composition." "The book also includes a catalogue raisonne, lists of exhibitions and collections, and bibliography, making it an invaluable resource for scholars as well as a highly readable profile of a remarkable man."--BOOK JACKET

From San Juan to Paris and back : Francisco Oller and Caribbean art in the era of impressionism by Edward J Sullivan( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francisco Oller (1833-1917) was a Puerto Rican painter whose work was admired on both sides of the Atlantic. A native of San Juan, Oller spent over twenty years in Europe, establishing himself as one of the most distinguished transatlantic painters of his day. Oller participated in the pioneering movements of Realism, Impressionism, and naturalism, and he developed mutually influential relationships with such artists as Camille Pissarro and Gustave Courbet. These artistic trends informed his novel Realist-Impressionist approach, with which he would revolutionize the school of painting in his native Puerto Rico. In this original and important book, Edward J. Sullivan advances close readings of works spanning Oller's entire career and offers insights into the development of the Caribbean basin in the nineteenth century. With rich illustrations, From San Juan to Paris and Back recasts Oller as a central figure in nineteenth-century art and restores the significance of Oller's work and his influence in shaping a uniquely Caribbean aesthetic."--Publisher's website
