Masterpieces in detail : early Netherlandish art from van Eyck to Bosch by Till Borchert( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Forty works by early Netherlandish masters from van Eyck to Bosch--reproduced in exquisite detail--are the subject of this breathtaking book that leads readers deep into the paintings to reveal each artist's astonishing technique and brilliant application of color. The longer we gaze at the paintings of the old masters, the more we appreciate the subtlety and artistry of the painters who created them. This beautiful book offers readers an opportunity to learn and study the art of Jan van Eyck, Rogier van der Weyden, Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, and many other masters of this period and region. It also explores their influence on later artists from the Baroque period. Each of the works is briefly presented along with its historical and contextual background and importance. Then in a series of full-page illustrations, specific details are enlarged to guide the reader carefully and thoughtfully through the piece's nuances and often overlooked features. The result is the next best thing to a private viewing at a museum--a truly sensuous and emotional experience that will engage both the novice and the expert. Till-Holger Borchert's texts are informative and engaging as he shares his singular passion for these great works in a magnificent book that will inspire viewers to form their own opinions and exercise their own powers of observation within the context of this important period in art history." -- Publisher's description
Expressionism by Norbert Wolf( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considered the first art movement originating in the Americas to have a worldwide influence, abstract expressionism spawned two very different sub-categories: action painting (exemplified by Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock) and color field painting, made most famous by Mark Rothko. Abstract expressionists strove to express emotions and ideas directly on canvas via color, form and texture, the quality of brushstrokes and other marks, the dripping of paint, for example while embracing accident and chance, and celebrating the very act of painting. Featured artists: William Baziotes, Helen Frankenthaler, Arshile Gorky, Adolph Gottlieb, Philip Guston, Hans Hofmann, Franz Kline, Willem de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Robert Motherwell, Barnett Newman, Jackson Pollock, Ad Reinhardt, Mark Rothko, David Smith, Theodoros Stamos, Clyfford Still, Mark Tobey, Bradley Walter Tomlin

Overzicht in woord en beeld van de Art-Deco-kunstenares
Oskar Schlemmer : visions of a new world by Oskar Schlemmer( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oskar Schlemmer (1888-1943) was one of the most versatile all-rounders of the last century and as unusual as a painter as he was as a sculptor, draughtsman, graphic artist, stage designer, wall designer, creator of epochal dance projects and author. His vision was the new man living in functional architecture, thinking clearly and acting clearly in the modern age which would never again sink into the chaos of war. The catalogue includes the seven original costumes of the Triadisches Ballett (Triadic Ballet) together with rare documents of the time. The connection between the all-encompassing attempts at reform of the Bauhaus are discussed as well as Schlemmer's vain attempts to reconcile his unpolitical art with the Nazi dictatorship's ideas of state-controlled art. The focus will be directed towards Schlemmer's lofty ethical demands, which always regarded man, typified as a Kunstfigur (artistic figure) as the measure of all things

John Baldessari : picture in a frame by John Baldessari( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The extensive oeuvre John Baldessari (b. National City, Calif., 1931; lives and works in Santa Monica) has built over more than six decades defies conventional classification.
