Isamu Noguchi : master sculptor by Valerie J Fletcher ( Book )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the most versatile artists of the modern era, Isamu Noguchi explored many areas of art and design. Both Isamu Noguchi: Master Sculptor and the exhibition of the same name, which this book accompanies, focus on his sculpture as the nexus of his creativity. From the late 1920s through the mid-1980s, Noguchi changed direction frequently and delighted in exploring diametrically opposed ideas and styles."--BOOK JACKET
Picasso : the cubist portraits of Fernande Olivier by Jeffrey S Weiss ( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Between spring and winter 1909, Picasso executed more than sixty portraits of his companion, Fernande Olivier. In their tenacious pursuit of a single subject, these works reveal a level of experimentation that stands out in the history of portraiture. Even more significant, the Fernande series coincided with the invention of cubism. Published to accompany a major exhibition originating at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, this richly illustrated volume illuminates Picasso's radical reformulation of human physiognomy." "Containing eighty-two color illustrations and sixty-eight duo-tones, the catalogue explores the Fernande portraits and related works as a single oeuvre culminating in the magnificent Head of a Woman (Fernande) - one of Picasso's rare pre-1912 excursions into sculpture. By so doing, it allows us to examine Picasso's process in an unprecedented fashion. What emerges is a new picture of the artist developing a single portrait motif with obsessive repetition and struggling to resolve artistic problems during a time of crisis in his work. Also included are studio photographs that offer further insight into the conceptual nature of the artist's process. The next narrates the internal development of the Fernande portrait series, with particular emphasis on the sculpted Head, and relates it to other themes, including likeness, serial repetition, and the history of melancholy. The book also addresses the complex nature of Picasso's interest in the work of Paul Cezanne."--BOOK JACKET

Alberto Giacometti by Christian Klemm ( Book )
3 editions published in 1998 in English and French and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Today, one hundred years after his birth and a generation after his death, Alberto Giacometti is recognized as one of the small group of modern masters who dominated art during much of the twentieth century. This centennial volume both celebrates his achievement and reexamines his work, and thus contributes to a more focused concentration on the art itself" "The importance of reassessing Giacometti's work resides not only in each new generation finding a somewhat different artist than its forebears, but also in that each fresh look tends to impede the spread of myths and generalizations that shield us from the complexities of a great artist's oeuvre. This publication is meant to extend popular and critical understanding of Giacometti's achievement and to return the reader to the center of Giacometti's work, where new insights can only be revealed by the objects themselves."--BOOK JACKET
