Van Gogh and Gauguin : the studio of the south by Douglas W Druick( Book )

19 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 1,419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The friendship of Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin - including an intense, two-month collaboration in Aries, in the south of France - is one of the most revealing and dynamic relationships in the history of modern art. When they first met in Paris in late 1887, they were two of a number of artists seeking a way to move beyond impressionism. They found common ground in the belief that progressive art should be created at a distance from urban decadence, a conviction that led Gauguin to Brittany and van Gogh to Aries in the early months of 1888." "Published on the occasion of a landmark exhibition organized by The Art Institute of Chicago and the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, the book is a provocative study of influence and innovation. With a wealth of illustrations, it offers a new perspective on some of the best-known masterpieces of modern art, as well as fresh insight into two of its central personalities."--Jacket

Gustave Moreau : between epic and dream by Gustave Moreau( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and French and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gustave Moreau (1826-1898) was one of the most influential and idiosyncratic painters of the nineteenth century. He developed a reputation as an artistic hermit, committed to a highly personal vision of painting that combined myth, mysticism, history, and a fascination with the bizarre and exotic. Yet Moreau was also a prominent public figure in the Paris art world, winning praise for exhibits at the Salon, becoming a respected teacher at the Ecole des beaux-arts, and exerting a powerful influence on Henri Matisse, Georges Rouault, and the schools of Symbolism and Surrealism. This book, published to coincide with a spectacular international exhibition that marks the centenary of Moreau's death, presents a wide range of the artist's most famous and beautiful works along with penetrating essays and catalogue entries that explain his unique achievements in all their intellectual complexity and visual richness."--Jacket

Renoir by Douglas W Druick( Book )

11 editions published in 1997 in English and French and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pierre Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) is one of the best-loved artists of the French Impressionist circle. During his long and highly productive career, he created works ranging in subject matter from scenes of modern life to portraits, nudes, landscapes, and still lifes. The collections of The Art Institute of Chicago embrace every aspect of his art, including such masterpieces as Lunch at the Restaurant Fournaise, Acrobats at the Cirque Fernando, and Two Sisters (On the Terrace). This book represents twenty-six works by Renoir in full color, highlighting his activities as painter, draftsman, printmaker, and sculptor. Douglas W. Druick's essay on the artist's life and achievements provides insight into the historical significance and visual appeal of his imagery."--Jacket

Invisible man : Gordon Parks and Ralph Ellison in Harlem by Gordon Parks( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By the mid-1940s, Gordon Parks was a successful photographer and Ralph Ellison began work on his acclaimed novel Invisible Man (1952). It is relatively unknown, however, that the two men were friends and that their common vision of racial injustice inspired collaboration on two important projects, in 1948 and 1952. Parks and Ellison first joined forces on an essay titled “Harlem Is Nowhere” for '48: The Magazine of the Year. Conceived while Ellison was already writing Invisible Man, this illustrated essay was centered on Harlem's Lafargue Mental Hygiene Clinic - the first non-segregated psychiatric clinic in New York City - as a case study for the social and economic conditions of the neighborhood. He chose Parks to create the accompanying photographs and during the winter months of 1948, the two roamed the streets of Harlem. In 1952 they worked together again on "A Man Becomes Invisible" for the August 25 issue of Life magazine, which promoted Ellison's newly released novel. This is the first publication on Parks' and Ellison's collaboration on these two projects, one of which was lost while the other was published only in reduced form. The catalogue provides an in-depth look at the artists' shared vision of black life in America, with Harlem as its nerve center. Book published to coincide with an exhibition of the same name originating at The Art Institute of Chicago, 21 May to 28 August 2016." -- from artist's website

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Gauguin is among one of the most popular artists of the Modern period. His lush, colorful works created a stir within the art world at the turn of the century and helped form the basis for Modern painting. Gauguin's unconventional lifestyle brought him to experience rural Brittany, Panama, Martinique, Tahiti, and later, the Marquesas Islands. His travels inspired some of the most exquisite and paradisiacal visions in painting."--Amazon
