Most widely held works by Adam D Weinberg
Unknown terrain : the landscapes of Andrew Wyeth by Beth Venn( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, which accompanies a landmark exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, is the first to focus exclusively on the exquisite landscape paintings and watercolors that Wyeth has been creating throughout his long career. Fluid, expressionistic, often breathtaking in their abstract beauty, these landscapes enable us to view Wyeth's work without the usual focus on narrative and anecdote. By revealing the art behind the story, they offer a fresh basis for understanding Wyeth's genius
Edward Hopper and the American imagination by Deborah Lyons( Book )

12 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume includes fifty-nine of Hopper's most important works in full color as well as original works by fiction writers and poets that pay homage to, or make reference to, the ways in which Hopper pictured our world. Hopper's themes of alienation and loneliness, empty cityscapes and countrysides, the stark light of Cape Cod, silent hills and houses - all have been indelibly imprinted on our collective sense of ourselves and our country. This work celebrates the impact Hopper's imagery continues to have on contemporary culture and is dedicated to a fuller understanding of Hopper's place in the American mind

Terry Winters : paintings, drawings, prints 1994/2004 by Richard Shiff( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A look at the recent work of Terry Winters, whose diverse and creative output continues to challenge and surprise the art world. Terry Winters's work of the past decade weaves disparate strains of idea, object, and physical operations into the primary logic of his art. His art contains an astonishing array of forms and demonstrates the equally surprising breadth of his artistic language. This retrospective volume continues where the mid-career survey (1992) at the Whitney Museum concluded, presenting the past decade of Winters's innovative work in paintings, prints, drawings, and artists' books. Terry Winters presents the ways in which the artist creates sets and subsets of distinctive works that interact with bodies of previous and current work. Also included are images by the artist that have not previously been exhibited or published. Winters's work is frequently included in conversations and studies relating to the interplay of art and science, and his recent paintings, drawings, and prints reflect his engagement with scientific and computational systems of thought and presentations of information. For Winters, abstract art has become a vehicle not for "reproducing and inventing form but for harnessing forces." By utilizing expressive means, "data becomes pictorial and spatial." This superbly illustrated volume displays the full range of Winters's newest works and the complex relationships that link them to one another

Frank Stella : a retrospective by Frank Stella( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Showcasing works from all of his major series, the book surveys the full sweep of Stella's career, from his artistic beginnings in high school and college to today. The plates section comprises more than 100 works, including paintings, sculptures, reliefs, and works on paper. Notable inclusions are his seminal Black Paintings, recent high-relief aluminum works, and a selection of drawings, maquettes, and digital renderings--many of which are reproduced here for the first time--that offer fresh insight into Stella's thinking and process. Essays discuss topics such as the artist's early years at Phillips Academy in Andover and Princeton University, and his late-career architectural pieces created with the aid of computer software. An interview with Stella conducted by American painter Laura Owens allows Stella to illuminate his artistic practice in his own words. Additional resources include a chronology with extensive bibliographic and exhibition references

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This all-new handbook, a fresh look at the Whitney Museum of American Art’s collection, highlights the museum’s extraordinary holdings and its fascinating history. Featuring iconic pieces by artists such as Calder, Hopper, Johns, O’Keeffe, and Warhol—as well as numerous works by under-recognized individuals—this is not only a guide to the Whitney’s collection, but also a remarkable primer on modern and contemporary American art. Beautifully illustrated with abundant new photography, the book pairs scholarly entries on 350 artists with images of some of their most significant works. The museum’s history and the evolution of its collection, including the Whitney’s important distinction as one of the few American museums founded by an artist, and the notion of “American” in relation to the collection, are covered in two short essays. Published to coincide with the Whitney’s highly anticipated move to a new facility in downtown New York in the spring of 2015, this book celebrates the museum’s storied past and vibrant present as it looks ahead to its future."--Publisher's description

From the heart : the power of photography, a collector's choice by Adam D Weinberg( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collecting photography can be immensely enjoyable. In fact, it can become an all-consuming passion, as it is for Sondra Gilman, who began collecting in the 1970s when she was "thunderstruck" at an exhibition of Eugène Atget's photographs. After twenty-five rewarding years of building one of the foremost photography collections in America--after "shuddering" when she made that seemingly expensive initial purchase of an Atget--Sondra Gilman is now showing her collection for the first time, offering a new generation the chance to feel the intense contact with visual things that she herself felt at the outset of her life as a collector of photography and continues to experience today. Noted for its uncommon vision and aesthetic clarity within a wide reach of photographic medium, the Sondra Gilman Collection provides an invaluable introduction to the art of photography, to where it has been and where it is going. Within this volume are some of the finest examples of photography produced over the last one hundred years, from the great masters to the newcomers making their mark. The Preface by Mark Haworth-Booth, curator of photography at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, discusses the important collections of the past. Adam Weinberg, curator of the permanent collection for the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, comments on the Sondra Gilman Collection in particular, providing themes to help understand the images: instantaneous time versus the eternal, appropriating other works into a picture, taking the common and making it strange, the self divided as one sees oneself in relation to others, and he includes pointers on developing a collector's eye. Award-winning novelist Marianne Wiggins plays with the idea of the power of photography. For each of the photographers featured in the book, there is a perceptive thumbnai biograpy and a significant quote by the photographer about the making of pictures. From the Heart: The Power of Photography--A Collector's Choice provides an inside look at the art of photography and sends a message that you too can collect photography
Reinventing the West : the photographs of Ansel Adams and Robert Adams by Ansel Adams( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1976, Robert Adams shot "Fort Collins, Colorado," a nighttime picture of a lone tree in a Colorado parking lot, the crescent moon hanging in the sky above. More than 30 years earlier, Ansel Adams had captured "Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico," showing a magnificent vista of desert scrub and clustered buildings, snow-capped mountains in the distance, the full moon majestically presiding in the expansive sky overhead. These two pictures could be neither more different nor more similar; nor could the younger Adams have made his photograph without knowledge of his greatly admired predecessor's. If Ansel Adams created singular images in search of a platonic ideal of nature, Robert Adams explored repetition and conformity; both were responding, in their own personal and aesthetic way, to the landscape of the American West. The first book to juxtapose bodies of work by these two twentieth-century master photographers, Reinventing the West reveals how their photographs reflect changing attitudes toward the western landscape and the natural world
