Chihuly : form from fire by Dale Chihuly( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chihuly's originality lies in his refusal to believe that there are fixed rules that must be adhered to," wrote the late Henry Geldzahler, former curator of contemporary art of New York's Metropolitan Museum, in his essay for this work. Accompanying the artist's traveling retrospective, the book documents 10 of Chihuly's rule breaking series from the Baskets, begun in the late 1970s, through the Pilchuck Stumps of 1992. Painter and art critic Walter Darby Bannard introduces the volume, which is more inclusive than a typical exhibition catalog, with a personal response to Chihuly and his glass. Seventy-five full-color reproductions and commentary on the individual series by the artist and noted authorities provide a visual and verbal overview of the artist's career. With listings of selected museum and public collections and permanent installations as well as an extensive bibliography, this book offers a definitive look at "Chihuly As of 1993," as Geldzahler titled his provocative essay in which he asserts that Chihuly "does go over the top at times."

A bigger splash by Jack Hazan( Visual )

10 editions published between 1974 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"1971: the artist David Hockney is well on his way to art world super-stardom. Filmmaker Jack Hazan, camera rolling, follows Hockney from London to New York to Los Angeles--capturing the artist as he struggles to create what would prove to be some of his most enduring works: those featuring Hockney's model and lover, Peter Schlesinger. Straddling the boundary between documentary and fiction, A bigger splash tells the story of Hockney's breakup with Schlesinger and its effect on Hockney, his work, and his close circle of friends"--Container
Larry Stanton : painting and drawing by Larry Stanton( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Larry Stanton was a portraitist. He was always drawing people. He didn't exhibit much. Like most portraitists he was shy about showing his work, the worry about 'likeness', (perhaps a wrong notion) always seems to intervene. A kind of naive notion that the portrait IS them seems to take place. Larry struggled with this and slowly his struggle was beginning to bear fruit, a fact which is visible in the selection of his drawings and paintings reproduced here

Subway by Bruce Davidson( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The intrepid documentary photographer Bruce Davidson, veteran of the civil rights movement and the ghetto ( East 100th Street ), has taken his camera into the New York subways, and has emerged, as might be expected, bereft of a camera. That was a small price to pay for these sensitive and intensely colorful pictures. He hopes that we will see the beauty he found there, but the gritty, seamy images reproduced here will not increase ridership. The bizarre inhabitants of the underground are the majority, with the sober nine-to-five'ers seeming distinctly out of place
