Frank Auerbach : paintings and drawings, 1954-2001 by Catherine Lampert( Book )

18 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of Britain's pre-eminent postwar painters and among the most internationally collected of living artists, Frank Auerbach has spent all of his adult life in London and delights in the city's colours and forms. Both his oil paintings and his drawings reveal the intense observation and furious mark-making that he employs to arrive at the essence of his subjects." "This book is published to accompany a major retrospective held at the Royal Academy of Arts to mark Auerbach's seventieth year. Norman Rosenthal considers Auerbach's paintings in the contexts of London and of Western art. Catherine Lampert, curator of the exhibition, contributes an essay on the painter and his sitters, and Isabel Carlisle introduces each of the four sections of catalogue plates. The book illustrates in full colour many works in private collections, providing the most comprehensive survey in print of Auerbach's unique and compelling work."--Jacket

The volume reproduces every known oil painting by Uglow - a total of more than 440 works, some 80 of which are here reproduced for the first time. In addition to full bibliographic references and exhibition history, the catalogue entries provide many other details and illuminating notes about the paintings, including the artist's own observations and the recollections of models, friends and critics."--Jacket
Peter Doig by Peter Doig( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most comprehensive monograph on Turner Prize-nominated artist Peter Doig. In every generation of artists, there are a few-or perhaps just one-who propose a new set of questions and alter the way we understand art. Peter Doig is such an artist. While stories of painting's demise in the early 1990s deemed painters and their work quaintly anachronistic, Doig-looking ahead as much as back for inspiration-forged a new painterly language: an ironic mix of Romanticism and post-impressionism to create haunting and sometimes dreamlike landscape vistas. In this lavish new volume devoted to his entire career-which includes paintings, drawings, and reference material, such as found photographs-art historians Richard Shiff and Catherine Lampert mine the artist's rich and varied work. Doig's landscapes have been inspired by the many places the artist has lived-England, Canada, Trinidad. So, too, does memory, or the idea of memory, inform much of his production. This handsome slipcased volume is designed in close collaboration with the artist, with Doig specially creating the cover and various elements of the interior. Every facet of the painter's singular vision is explored, from his earliest paintings of the early 1990s to the most recent series of works. Published in association with Michael Werner Gallery.-- Product Description
Frank Auerbach : speaking and painting by Catherine Lampert( Book )

15 editions published between 2015 and 2019 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in Berlin in 1931 to Jewish parents, the eight-year-old Auerbach was sent to England in 1939 to escape the Nazi regime. His parents stayed behind and died in a concentration camp in 1943. Now in his eighties, Auerbach is still producing his distinctly sculptural paintings of friends, family and surroundings in north London, where he has made his home since the war. The art historian and curator Catherine Lampert has had unique access to the artist since 1978 when she first became one of his sitters. With an emphasis on Auerbachs own words, culled from her conversations with him and archival interviews, she provides a rare insight into his professional life, working methods and philosophy. Auerbach also reflects on the places, people and inspirations that have shaped his life. These include his experiences as a refugee child, finding his way in the London art world of the 1950s and 1960s, his friendships with Lucian Freud, Francis Bacon and Leon Kossoff, among many others, and his approaches to looking and painting throughout his career. For anyone interested in how an artist approaches his craft or his method of capturing reality this is essential reading

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

London calling : Bacon, Freud, Kossoff, Andrews, Auerbach, and Kitaj by Elena Crippa( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between the postwar years and the 1980s in Britain, and in particular in London, a number of figurative painters simultaneously reinvented the way in which life is represented in art. Focusing on the depiction of the human figure, these artists rendered the frailty and vitality of the human condition. 00Offering a fresh account of developments that have since characterized postwar British painting, this catalogue focuses on Michael Andrews, Frank Auerbach, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, R.B. Kitaj, and Leon Kossoff? artists who worked in close proximity as they were developing new forms of realism. If for many years their efforts seemed to clash with dominant tendencies, reassessment in recent decades has afforded their work a central position in a richer and more complex understanding of postwar British art and culture
