Peggy Guggenheim : a celebration by Karole P. B Vail( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born into a wealthy New York family, Peggy - whose Uncle Solomon would establish the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation - participated in the cultural ferment of life in London and Paris during the 192Os and 193Os. Her friends included many of the most significant avant-garde figures of the era, such as Samuel Beckett and Marcel Duchamp. In London, she ran Guggenheim Jeune, her cutting-edge gallery devoted to contemporary art. During the months surrounding the outbreak of World War II, Peggy accelerated her purchases of abstract and Surrealist art until she was buying virtually one work every day, eventually amassing one of the most important collections of Modern art in private hands. After escaping to New York in the company of Max Ernst, she established the gallery Art of This Century, which from 1942 to 1947 featured her collection as well as the first or early solo exhibitions for such artists as Robert Motherwell, Jackson Pollock, and Mark Rothko." "In 1948, Peggy settled permanently in Venice, where her home, the eighteenth-century Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, would become the Peggy Guggenheim Collection after her death in 1979. The collection is now one of the most celebrated for visitors to Venice. Vail's essay provides important new information on the Venice years, during which Peggy kept guest books that record the visits of an astonishing array of international personalities. Pages from these guest books - published here for the first time - include unique drawings by such artists as Marc Chagall, Jean Cocteau, and Saul Weinberg."--Jacket

Robert Motherwell : early collages by Robert Motherwell( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1944, Robert Motherwell described collage as "the greatest of our [art] discoveries" after a revelatory encounter with the technique. This volume accompanies an exhibition devoted exclusively to Motherwell's papiers colles and the related works on paper that were executed during his first decade of art making (1941-51), while at the same time it explores the origins of his unique style. By cutting, tearing, and layering pasted papers, Motherwell reflected the tumult and violence of the modern world, which established him as an essential and original voice in postwar American art. Throughout the 1940's, he produced both abstracted figural collages and pure abstract collages. By 1952, however, the Surrealist influence prevalent in these first works had given way to his distinctive, mature style that was firmly rooted in Abstract Expressionism. Motherwell's enthusiasm for and dedication to the collage medium for the remainder of his career sets him apart from other artists of his generation. Reproducing fifty-eight artworks, the catalogue's four essays investigate collage in the first half of the twentieth century; Motherwell's early career with patron Peggy Guggenheim; the artists underlying humanitarian themes during World War II; and his materials. Robert Motherwell: Early Collages offers a vital reassessment of Motherwell's work in the collage medium

V.S. Gaitonde : painting as process, painting as life by Sandhini Poddar( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A seminal colorist whose career remains unparalleled in the history of South Asian modern art, V.S. Gaitonde was known to fellow artists and intellectuals as well as to later generations of students and collectors as a man of uncompromising integrity of spirit and purpose. Accompanying an exhibition at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, this book of major paintings and works on paper serves as a means to explore the context of Indian modern art as it played out in the metropolitan centers of Mumbai and New Delhi from the late 1940s through the end of the 20th century. It also introduces readers to a reclusive genius who developed a unique nonobjective style that employed palette knives and paint rollers. The exquisite reproductions reveal Gaitonde's extraordinary use of color, form, and texture, as well as symbolic elements and calligraphy to create works that seem to glow with an inner light. A comprehensive essay relates Gaitonde's nuanced understanding of color to major American, European and Asian traditions and movements, analyses the artist's use of the term "nonobjective" within its historical context, and provides valuable insights into Gaitonde's life and work in the context of Indian modernism." -- Publisher's description

Mystical symbolism : the Salon de la Rose Croix in Paris, 1892-1897 by Vivien Greene( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Mystical Symbolism: The Salon de la Rose+Croix in Paris, 1892-1897' accompanies the first-ever museum presentation examining the Salon de la Rose+Croix (R+C), a series of annual exhibitions established by eccentric French author, critic, and Rosicrucian Joséphin Péladan. The R+C convened an international group of Symbolist artists around a shared refutation of Realist aesthetics and philosophy, frequently in favor of the Ideal. Among the participants were Pierre Amédée Marcel-Béronneau, Jean Delville, Fernand Khnopff, Charles Maurin, Armand Point, Alexandre Séon, and Félix Vallotton.0Bound in red velvet with gold stamped lettering to conjure the sensorially evocative atmosphere of the Salons, the catalogue features essays about the history, themes, and often transcendent aims of the R+C (Greene), its reception by the press and the public in the 1890s (Jumeau-Lafond), and the importance of spiritualism to early 20th-century abstraction (Silver). This richly illustrated volume also contains 46 color plates, entries on each exhibited artist, and a bibliography of contemporary sources on Symbolist art
