Ellsworth Kelly : the years in France, 1948-1954 by Ellsworth Kelly( Book )

21 editions published in 1992 in 4 languages and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late 1950s, Ellsworth Kelly emerged as a major figure in the vanguard of so-called "Hard Edge" New York abstraction. Noted for their articulate, sharply contoured planes, unified perspective, and shifting balances between foreground and background, Kelly's works expanded the language of both figuration and abstraction, establishing him as one of the leading postwar American artists. Earlier in his career, Kelly had spent six years in France, from 1948 to 1954, a time that proved decisive to the evolution of his art. Sponsored by the G.I. Bill, the artist closely studied contemporary and historical art, architecture and culture in Paris and various regions of France, as well as meeting with several other European and American artists. These were all critical stimuli at a time when Kelly was developing his distinct mature style. Published in connection with an exhibition co-organized by the Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume, Paris, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., this scintillating volume presents the first complete and accurate portrait of this pivotal stage in Kelly's career, drawing on previously unpublished work and observations by the artist. Excerpts from interviews and correspondence, and a chronicle of the artist's activities are included. The essays address the creative and interpretive issues of Kelly's work in relation to modern abstraction, his use of the "chance" and the modular grid, and the role of his photographs in recording motifs in nature. This volume reproduces for the first time all Kelly's paintings and low-relief sculpture of the period, as well as a selection of his earlier paintings done in New Jersey and Boston. A number of his photographs, drawings, sketchbooks, and collages are also featured. Comparative illustrations include portraits of his artist friends, photographs of Paris, and works by Matisse, Picasso, and others. Ironically, Kelly sold only one painting during his years in Paris although he participated in several avant-garde exhibitions. Yet the achievements of this period are recognized today as Kelly's first important works and have clearly established his international reputation
A modern patronage : de Menil gifts to American and European museums by Marcia Brennan( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Simon Hantaï by Simon Hantaï( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in French and English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This catalogue offers the opportunity to discover the complete oeuvre of one of the most important artists of the second half of the 20th century: Simon Hantaï. From the first paintings after Hantaï's arrival in Paris in 1948 to the pliage paintings, this publication, which covers sixty years of the painter's life and accompanies the first retrospective of Hantaï's work since 1876, reveals the complexity and extreme diversity of his creation: from the Surrealist paintings to the writing-paintings, from the Mariales (the first series of works created using the pliage or folding method) to the Laissées. Hantaï's approach is analyzed at each stage of its development. Essays, accounts by those closest to the artist, and a detailed chronology, as well as numerous hitherto unpublished illustrations, complement this first major reference work on the artist."--Page 4 of cover

Multiple modernities, 1905-1970 : from the collections of the National Museum of Modern Art by Catherine Grenier( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Multiple Modernities posits a renewed and enlarged vision of modern art. For the first time, the Centre Pompidou delves into the riches of its collections to present a global history of art. Taking into account not only the various countries of the world, but also the multiplicity of artists and aesthetics, this history transports us into the heart of the exceptional diversity of artistic forms created between 1905 and 1970. The contributing authors, curators, and scholars, uncover the major movements of multiple avant-gardes within the networks of exchanges and emulations characterstic of this period, with its profusion of inventions and re-examinations. They analyse the complex and dynamic relationship between universality and vernacular culture, purity and hybridity, extending throughout the adventure of modern art. Revealing the intersections and fusions of different arts, they also demonstrate the interaction of modern art with traditional practices and extra-artistic expression."
