Byzantine women and their world by Ioli Kalavrezou-Maxeiner( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mondrian: the transatlantic paintings by Harry Cooper( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Harry Cooper, an authority on Mondrian's art, and Ron Spronk, an expert on the technical examination of paintings, investigate the artist's unusual working method during this period. Their collaboration offers an intimate look into the studio of a great modern artist and establishes a new model for the integration of art history, theory, and technical analysis."--Jacket

Ellsworth Kelly : the early drawings, 1948-1955 by Yve-Alain Bois( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In fact, a look through this book’s reproductions does reveal substantial exuberance and generosity—a wonderfully lively visual and intellectual inquiry, in fact. But it’s not clear how much of that typically makes it into what Kelly would consider finished work, as opposed to these “drafts, or rather exercises,” as Bois calls them—where the artist may be all too rigorously pursue “the grail” of “his own effacement” (17). Perhaps I’m asking for more than a 24-page essay can accomplish. But even if Bois’s findings someday make their way into a book-length examination of Kelly’s work, this volume will remain essential for libraries on contemporary art, thanks to its 185 color reproductions—but it’s not quite the one to cure a Kelly-ambivalence like mine

Mastery & elegance : two centuries of French drawings from the collection of Jeffrey E. Horvitz( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The leading French artists of the period - Jacques-Charles Bellange, Jacques Callot, Simon Vouet, Claude Lorrain, Nicolas Poussin, Jean-Antoine Watteau, Jean-Baptiste-Simeon Chardin, Francois Boucher, Jean-Honore Fragonard, and Jacques-Louis David - are all here, but the importance of the collection lies in its broad representation of the many brilliant draftsmen active during these two crucial centuries in the history of French art. The catalogue incorporates the results of years of research on these drawings and will make a significant contribution to this relatively unstudied field

Long life cool white : photographs & essays by Moyra Davey( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photographer Moyra Davey takes quiet but ravishing photographs of typically overlooked and banal objects. Newspapers, dust, books, money, empty bottles, and the things on top of refrigerators all figure in series of pictures that bring viewers into a state of increased sensitivity to their everyday lives. Long Life Cool White features forty-five of the artist's photographs from the past two decades. Davey's relationship to such traditions as street and conceptual photography and French surrealism can be seen throughout these pages. Noted scholar Helen Molesworth examines the domestic content of Davey's work as well as Davey's burgeoning career as a writer. The book also includes Davey's insightful essay "Notes on Photography and Accident," in which she discusses the themes of chance, death, and the poetic that occur in the writings of three major theorists of photography: Roland Barthes, Walter Benjamin, and Susan Sontag
