Art since 1940 : strategies of being by Jonathan David Fineberg( Book )

68 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 2,518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book helps us understand the "strategies of being" of the greatest postwar artists, and by extension other artists both well-known and little celebrated. Professor Fineberg focuses on artists' lives and how they intersected with broader cultural issues. Individual artists looked at in depth include Calder, Hofmann, Gorky, Motherwell, de Kooning, Pollock, Newman, Rothko, David Smith, Dubuffet, Giacometti, Bacon, Rauschenberg, Oldenburg, Johns, Beuys, Klein, Warhol, Rosenquist, Westermann, Arneson, Hesse, Nauman, Christo, Polke, Guston, Bearden, Aycock, Kiefer, Clemente, Borofsky, Basquiat, and Wojnarowicz." "Professor Fineberg's thematic discussion treats ideas and events that are critical to understanding how social and cultural climates have affected creative people from the 1940s to the present. The accent is on individual artists and their experience. Interspersed are fascinating considerations of scores of major tendencies - from the CoBrA, art informed, British Pop Art, Bay Area figurative painters in the 1950s, and the artists and writers of the Beat Generation to the Minimalists, the impact of feminism, minority artists, conceptual art. European neo-expressionism. East Village scene-makers of the 1980s, recent artists of appropriation, and the return to the body in the art of the 1990s."--Jacket

The innocent eye : children's art and the modern artist by Jonathan David Fineberg( Book )

12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jonathan Fineberg here explores the importance of children's art to the work of key modernists from Matisse to Jackson Pollock. Fineberg's inquiry unfolds in this handsome book, which juxtaposes modern masterpieces with the drawings by children that directly influenced them. Fineberg discusses the effect of primitivism and Freudian thought on some of these artists, and demonstrates how they valued children's art for many reasons, including its naive spontaneity and celebration of the moment, imaginative use of visual language, universality and candor. For each of the masters who collected child art the reasons for doing so were as varied as his or her unique style
Imagining America : icons of 20th-century American art by John Carlin( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How did artists of the twentieth century use their work to respond to their unique personal experiences and moment in history? This provocative question is explored in this new book on American art. By focusing on broad, defining themes, embodied in the work of such pivotal artists as Georgia O'Keeffe, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol, the authors look at how art provided a means for re-imagining America, visualizing what it had become, and where it might go in a century of turbulent change."
Discovering child art : essays on childhood, primitivism, and modernism( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together thirteen distinguished critics and scholars to explore children's art and its profound but rarely documented influence on the evolution of modern art. It shows that children's art and childhood have inspired major works of art, served as central metaphors for artistic spontaneity and honesty, and provided a window into the fundamental human qualities explored by modern artists

A troublesome subject : the art of Robert Arneson by Jonathan David Fineberg( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tells the fascinating story of how a high school art teacher transformed himself into an artist of international stature and ambition. Representing the full scope of Arneson's career in a rich survey of color reproductions, this book is at once a study of the trajectory of contemporary culture, the work of Robert Arneson, and the relationship between the two. It shows how Arneson's work articulated the crisis of narcissism that has defined American culture since 1970. Jonathan Fineberg develops his ongoing work toward a psychosocial history of art as he proceeds through Arneson's career--chronicling his early life, the formation of a personal style, and finding a unique subject matter in his famous post-1970 turn to self-portraiture."--Amazon
Modern art at the border of mind and brain by Jonathan David Fineberg( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human beings have made images continuously for more than thirty thousand years. The oldest known cave paintings are between six and ten times older than the first forms of written language. Images help us organize our thoughts and represent them in our memory. We make images, Jonathan Fineberg argues, because we need them to aid not only in structuring our social and psychological self-conceptions but also in developing the circuitry of our brains. Modern Art at the Border of Mind and Brain is a broad investigation by one of the foremost scholars of modern art of the relationship between modern art and the structure of the mind and brain. Based on Fineberg's Presidential Lectures at the University of Nebraska, his book examines the relationship between artistic production, neuroscience, and the way we make meaning in form. Drawing on the art of Robert Motherwell, Joan Miró, Alexander Calder, Christo, Jean Dubuffet, and others, Fineberg helps us understand the visual unconscious, the limits of language, and the political impact of art. Throughout, he works from the conviction that looking is a form of thinking that has a profound impact on the structure of the mind
Lipchitz and the avant-garde : from Paris to New York by Jacques Lipchitz( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alice Aycock drawings : some stories are worth repeating by Alice Aycock( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alice Aycock (b. 1946) emerged onto the New York art scene in the 1970s and is best known for her large-scale public sculptures that often combine an industrial appearance with references to weightlessness as well as to science and cosmology. Aycock also has embraced the practice of drawing throughout her enormously productive career. Alice Aycock: Drawings is the first exploration of her spectacular drawings, which include elements of mirage, fantasy, and science, and evoke both abstract thinking and bodily sensation. The works on paper featured in this handsome volume highlight the major themes that have governed her artistic practice: the role of architecture as a founding point of reference; the importance of mechanics and structure; and references to nature. As author Jonathan Fineberg demonstrates, Aycock is an artist who thinks on paper. Her works are often equal parts engineering plan and science fiction imagining. Visualizing such contradictions allows us to, in her words, transport ourselves 'farther into another place.'"--Publisher's website

Mit dem Auge des Kindes : Kinderzeichnung und moderne Kunst by Jonathan David Fineberg( Book )

22 editions published in 1995 in German and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Viele der Protagonisten der Moderne sammelten Kinderzeichnungen und suchten in Kinderkunst neue gestalterische Impulse. Wassily Kandinsky und Gabriele Münter zum Beispiel legten eine Sammlung mit über zweihundert Zeichnungen an, Paul Klee nahm eigene Zeichnungen aus der Kindheit in sein OEuvreverzeichnis auf und organisierte zusammen mit Kandinsky im Jahr 1929 eine Ausstellung von Kinderzeichnungen am Bauhaus. Den Einfluss von Kinderzeichnungen auf die Künstler dokumentiert der vorliegende Band. Sie stammen fast ausschließlich aus den von Künstlern selbst angelegten Sammlungen und werden moderner Kunst unseres Jahrhunderts gegenübergestellt, um einen neuen Einblick zu ihrem Verständnis zu gewähren. Die Konfrontation mit Werken von Chagall, Dubuffet, Miró, Klee, Kandinsky, Münter, Picasso, der Cobra-Gruppe und Arbeiten zeitgenössischer Kunst lässt enge Bezüge sichtbar werden
