Georgia O'Keeffe, art and letters by Georgia O'Keeffe( Book )

10 editions published in 1987 in English and German and held by 1,859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a catalog accompanying the centennial exhibition of American artist Georgia O'Keeffe's (1887-1986) work at the National Gallery of Art. This work includes color reproductions of the 120 pieces in the exhibition, as well as 125 letters O'Keeffe wrote during her lifetime. This survey includes charcoals and pencil drawings on paper, but most is devoted to her work in color -- water colors and pastels on paper, and oils on canvas. O'Keeffe's letters are grouped according to four periods in her life: 1915-1918, when she was an art teacher in Virginia, South Carolina and Texas; 1919-1929, when she lived with Alfred Stieglitz in New York; 1929-1946, a period of time when she became more attached to the Southwest, and broke with the way of life in New York City and the east coast; and 1947-1981, when, after Stieglitz's death, she moved to and took up residence in New Mexico permanently. Through the personal letters that form the core of the book, O'Keeffe emerges as an even more complex and passionate person than she herself was willing to reveal before her death in 1986

On the art of fixing a shadow : one hundred and fifty years of photography by Sarah Greenough( Book )

25 editions published in 1989 in 3 languages and held by 1,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a catalogue of an exhibition held at the National Gallery of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. At this sesquicentennial celebration, it has been our intention in both the exhibition and the catalogue to present and analyze those photographs that, regardless of why they were made, seem the most visually significant. Limiting ourselves, for the most part, to American and European photographers, we have attempted to chart the development of an understanding of photography as a pictorial device. - Introduction
Alfred Stieglitz, photographs & writings by Alfred Stieglitz( Book )

21 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents seventy-three of American photographer Alfred Stieglitz's finest works. The photographs span Stieglitz's entire career; his early European studies from the 1880s and 1890s; his views of New York City from the turn of the century; the portraits of the many artists and writers he supported; the extended portraiture of Georgia O'Keeffe; his photographs of clouds, the Equivalents; and his final studies of New York City and Lake George from the 1920s and 1930s. This book focuses on Stieglitz's central vision of photography ("search for objective truth and pure form") which increasingly was about "antiphotographs" or images that move beyond simple representation. Originally published as a complement to the exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in 1983

All the mighty world : the photographs of Roger Fenton, 1852-1860 by Gordon Baldwin( Book )

16 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roger Fenton (1819-1869) was England's most celebrated photographer during the 1850s, the young medium's most glorious moment. After studying law and painting, Fenton took up the camera in 1851 and immediately began to produce highly original images. During a decade of work he mastered every photographic genre he attempted: architectural photography, landscape, portraiture, still life, reportage, and tableau vivant." "This volume presents ninety of Fenton's finest photographs, exactingly reproduced. Six leading scholars have contributed nine illustrated essays that address every aspect of Fenton's career, as well as a comprehensive, documented chronology."--Jacket
Looking in : Robert Frank's The Americans by Sarah Greenough( Book )

23 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in France in 1958, then the United States in 1959, Robert Frank's The Americans changed the course of twentieth-century photography. In eighty-three photographs, Frank looked beneath the surface of American life to reveal a people plagued by racism, ill served by their politicians, and rendered numb by a rapidly expanding culture of consumption. Yet he also found novel areas of beauty in simple, overlooked corners of American life. And it was not just his subject matter - cars, jukeboxes, and even the road itself - that redefined the icons of America; it was also his seemingly intuitive, immediate, off-kilter style, as well as his method of brilliantly linking his photographs together thematically, conceptually, formally, and linguistically, that made The Americans so innovative. More of an ode or a poem than a literal document, the book is as powerful and provocative today as it was fifty years ago."--Jacket
Harry Callahan by Sarah Greenough( Book )

Callahan has consistently explored new ways of looking at the world around him - from high-contrast photographs of trees silhouetted against snow, to double exposures of his wife's nude figure merging into landscapes, to minimal abstractions - but he has used these experiments to reveal his relationships to the world around him

André Kertész by Sarah Greenough( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andre Kertesz (1894-1985) is one of the most important photographers of the twentieth century. In a career that spanned more than seventy years, he made some of the most deceptively simple yet compelling photographs ever created. He sought to capture the poetry of modern urban life, revealing its quiet incidents and odd, occasional comic, even bizarre juxtapositions." "This book chronicles his art, from his first works taken in his native Hungary just shortly before World War I, to his highly celebrated photographs of Paris in the 1920s and 1930s, and his studies of New York from the late 1930s to the early 1980s. Greenough and her colleagues have examined the extensive archive of diaries, letters, date books, clippings, and other memorabilia preserved by the artist himself. In their essays and an illustrated chronology, they provide new insights into the development of Kertesz's life and art, and its significance for twentieth-century photography. This book includes more than 250 reproductions and numerous excerpts from the photographer's previously unpublished correspondence and diaries."--BOOK JACKET
The memory of time : contemporary photographs from the National Gallery of Art by National Gallery of Art (U.S.)( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Memory of Time presents work by contemporary artists who investigate the richness and complexity of photography's relationship to time, memory, and history. In the last two decades, as the world has undergone an unprecedented technological revolution, photography itself has changed profoundly. With the advent of the digital age, people around the world are recording every aspect of their lives through photography, sharing their pictures with friends and strangers online and through the burgeoning social media. Yet digital photography has not only changed the way people make and circulate photographs, it has also shattered enduring notions of the medium as a faithful witness and recorder of unbiased truths, for now everything in a photograph can be fabricated; nothing need be real. Photography -- once understood as verifying specific facts, capturing singular moments of time, and preserving explicit memories -- is now recognized to have a multifaceted and slippery relationship to the truth and to the past. By embracing this complexity, contemporary artists have placed photography at the center of a renewed discussion around the construction of history and memory and the perception of time

Sally Mann : a thousand crossings by Sarah Greenough( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than four decades, Sally Mann has made experimental, elegiac, and hauntingly beautiful photographs that explore the overarching themes of existence: memory, desire, death, the bonds of family, and nature's magisterial indifference to human endeavor. What unites this broad body of work - including figure studies, landscapes, and architectural views - is that it is all bred of a place, the American South. Fully immersed in its literary and visual culture, Mann - a native of Lexington, Virginia - has long written about what it means to live in the South and to be identified as a southerner. Using her deep love of her homeland and her knowledge of its fraught heritage, she asks powerful, provocative questions - about history, identity, race, and religion - that reverberate across geographic and national boundaries. Presenting essays both personal and scholarly, this richly illustrated monograph constitutes an in-depth exploration of the evolution of Mann's art, with more than one hundred photographs, including several previously unpublished ones. 'Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings" considers how Mann's relationship with her native land has shaped her work and how the legacy of the South - as both homeland and graveyard, refuge and battleground - continues to inform American identity and experience."
Beat memories : the photographs of Allen Ginsberg by Sarah Greenough( Book )

13 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most visionary writers of his generation, Ginsberg was also a photographer. From 1953 to 1963 he frequently had his camera close by when he was with friends in his apartment or traveling with them, ready to record 'certain moments in eternity, ' as he wrote. For years many of these photographs languished among Ginsberg's papers. When he finally recovered them in the 1980s, he reprinted them and added handwritten narrative inscriptions. Inspired by this early work, he began to photograph again, recording both long-time friends and new acquaintances. Some eighty of these photographs are collected and brilliantly reproduced in this book, which also features the first scholarly essay on Ginsberg's photographs, written by Sarah Greenough, addressing the relationship of his photographs to his poetry and to works by other photographers of the period. Ginsberg's photographs depict many of his contemporaries, including his closest friends and lovers, such as Jack Kerouac, William S. Burroughs, Neal Cassady, Gregory Corso, and Peter Orlovsky. They capture days walking the streets of Manhattan, San Francisco, and Paris as well as grand tours of Africa and Asia."--Jacket flap

Irving Penn : platinum prints by Sarah Greenough( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a career that spans more than fifty years, American photographer Irving Penn (born 1917) has created some of the most arresting portraits, influential fashion studies, and provocative still lifes of the twentieth century. In the early 1960s when he turned from magazine work to platinum printing, he reinterpreted his earlier photographs, transforming them into the independent works of art that have been celebrated for the last thirty years. Extensively with the platinum process, making innumerable test strips in his quest to achieve remarkably subtle, rich tonal ranges and luxurious textures. When Penn rediscovered these test trips in the late 1980s, he arranged them in seventeen provocative collages, the Platinum Test Materials, which represent timeless meditations on his entire career: in demonstrating his search for perfection - and the difficulties in obtaining it - he has made this quest the very subject of his art." "This book reproduces the seventeen Platinum Test Materials, as well as the eighty-five platinum prints that are represented in these collages. Some of Penn's most important photographs are included, from portraits of Marcel Duchamp, Pablo Picasso, David Smith, and Saul Steinberg; to studies of indigenous peoples in New Guinea; innovative still lifes; and celebrated fashion studies."--Jacket
