Communicate : independent British graphic design since the sixties by Rick Poynor( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1960s youth culture and pop music became an important influence on British design. Key examples include the pop art collages of artists like Richard Hamilton and the psychedelic, punk, and new wave aesthetics of groups like Roxy Music and Pink Floyd. Images and illustrations were used in balance with letterforms to convey design concepts and ideas. The influence of popular culture is still relevant to contemporary British designers. Communicate focuses on the smaller independent design studios and teams that are credited with producing the most creative and innovative design over the past four decades and explores how and why British design has developed during this period."--Jacket
A bitter truth : avant-garde art and the Great War by Richard Cork( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The conflict was anticipated before hostilities began by the visionary and apocalyptic work of painters such as Meidner and Kandinsky, Chagall, Nevinson, Grosz, Beckmann, Kirchner, and other artists were quick to define war's essential tragedy with objective, expressionist, or allegorical art that alluded to their own wartime experiences. The harshest images of war were made in the later stages or after the Armistice, when artists such as Dix had time to consider their participation in the war

Tina Modotti & Edward Weston : the Mexico years by Sarah M Lowe( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tina Modotti and Edward Weston arrived in Mexico in 1923 at the start of an extraordinary period of artistic creativity that became known as the Mexican Renaissance. The book traces the interwoven lives and work of Modotti and Weston from the early 1920's in Los Angeles, where they met, until the 1930's, focusing in detail on their time together in Mexico, where virtually all of Modotti's photographs were taken. In bringing together for the first time close to 150 photographs by Modotti and Weston, it reveals the distinctive responses to Mexico of two photographers from widely different backgrounds. At the same time, like other Modernists in Mexico, these two artists self-consciously created work that broke wholly with the immediate past, and fashioned an idiom in defiance of traditional ideas. A selection of images by two Mexican photographers, Manuel Alvarez Bravo and Mariana Yampolsky, reveals how indigenous photography was influenced by these two foreigners
Ancient and modern by William Eggleston( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lee Krasner : living colour by Lee Krasner( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph accompanies the first European retrospective of the work of Lee Krasner (1908-1984). One of the original abstract expressionists, Krasner's importance has for too long been eclipsed by her marriage to Jackson Pollock. In fact, his death in 1956 marked her renaissance as an artist. Over the course of more than five decades, Krasner continually scrutinized and reinvented her practice, giving her work formidable energy and impact. Her accomplishments began to be recognized toward the end of her life and in 1984 she became one of the few women artists to be given a solo exhibition at MoMA. As Krasner quipped about her belated recognition: "I was a woman, Jewish, a widow, a damn good painter, thank you, and a little too independent". This volume features an outstanding selection of her most important paintings, collages and drawings, contextualized by photography from the post-war period, an illustrated chronology, and includes an unpublished interview with her biographer Gail Levin. Tracing her evolution as an artist--from her earliest self-portraits to the acclaimed 'little image' series, from her 1950s collages to epic painterly canvases--this book offers a vivid impression of one of the most tenacious women artists of the 20th century, whose work and life feels more relevant than ever today

The Americans : new art by Bruce Hainley( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The americans. newart. is the first book to survey the most recent wave of American contemporary art. The book features thirty of the most important artists to have emerged from the USA in the last five years, including some young artists who are just starting to establish their international reputations. The last time the American art scene was so active was in the eighties, which saw the emergence of a brat pack of celebrated artists. This phenomenon died along with the economic boom and international attention turned to other countries - including Britain. However, the wave of American artists that began to emerge in the later nineties is carving out a distinct identity for itself."--Jacket
