Action/abstraction : Pollock, de Kooning, and American art, 1940-1976 ( Book )
14 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The abstract paintings of Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Barnett Newman, Lee Krasner, Clyfford Still, Helen Frankenthaler, and others revolutionized the art world in the 1940s and 1950s and continue to inspire passionate arguments to this day. What were these artists trying to achieve? Who were the critical voices of the time that rallied public interest in Abstract Expressionism and sparked rancorous debate?" "Drawing on recent critical, historical, and biographical work, this lavishly illustrated book offers a sharp new focus on a pivotal art movement. It also presents an extensive commentary on the two most influential critics of postwar American art - Clement Greenberg and Harold Rosenberg - whose powerful views shaped perceptions of Abstract Expressionism and other contemporary art movements. In one essay, Norman L. Kleeblatt traces the influence of Abstract Expressionism into the mid-1970s and examines its connection to subsequent art styles. Other essays range from the literary and intellectual culture of New York during that period and an analysis of sculpture and representation to a discussion of Jewish issues in relation to postwar American Art. In addition, the book features a magisterial essay by eminent critic Irving Sandler and a copiously illustrated cultural timeline by Maurice Berger."--Jacket
An expressionist in Paris : the paintings of Chaim Soutine by Norman L Kleeblatt ( Book )
15 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Masterworks of the Jewish Museum by N.Y.) Jewish Museum (New York ( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Masterworks of The Jewish Museum begins with two complementary essays: a lively overview of the museum's history by Joan Rosenbaum, documenting the evolution of the collection and the key figures who founded the institution; and a provocative discussion by Maurice Berger of the museum's significance within the context of collecting and exhibiting practices over the past century. The book features a range of artworks grouped thematically into four categories: memory and history; spirituality and faith; society and politics; and portraiture and identity. Each work is accompanied by a short essay providing description and interpretation. Together the reproductions and informative text reveal how Jewish culture has evolved through the centuries and across continents."--BOOK JACKET

Mel Bochner : strong language by Norman L Kleeblatt ( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mel Bochner (b. 1940) is celebrated as a key Conceptual artist of the 1960s. Less well-known are his paintings made after that period: complex works based on an exploration of language, often crowded with typography in lush, contrasting hues that both embrace and challenge the painterly tradition. Mel Bochner: Strong Language focuses on this important body of work, in which Bochner investigates the lines between text and image. Ranging from bold admonishments and witty emoticons to provocative floods of words, these works demonstrate conceptual seriousness, as well as delight in the playful potential of language. Norman L. Kleeblatt discusses the evolution of Bochner's art from his early word experiments through his return to painting, while Bochner offers a personal perspective. Both Kleeblatt and Bochner address the question of Jewishness in Bochner's work, particularly the ways in which the Jewish intellectual tradition embraces language as a visual expressive form.
