Homemade esthetics : observations on art and taste by Clement Greenberg( )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 1,818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this work, which gathers previously uncollected essays and a series of seminars delivered at Bennington in 1971, Greenberg provides his most expansive statement of his views on taste and quality in art, arguing for an esthetic that flies in the face of current art world fashions." "Greenberg maintains - despite the attempts of some artists from Marcel Duchamp onwards to escape the jurisdiction of taste by producing an art so disjunctive that it cannot be judgedthat taste is inexorable. He argues that standards of quality in art, the artist's responsibility to seek out the hardest demands of a medium, and the critic's responsibility to discriminate, are essential conditions for great art. The obsession with innovation and the epidemic of newness leads, in Greenberg's view, to the boringness of so much avant garde art. He discusses the interplay of expectation and surprise in aesthetic experience, and the exalted consciousness produced by great art." "Homemade Esthetics allows us, particularly in the transcribed seminar sessions, never before published, to watch the critic's mind at work, defending (and at times reconsidering) his theories."--Jacket

Pablo Picasso : the legacy of a genius( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring the breadth of the artist's achievements through the insights and speculations of fellow artists, close relatives, historians, and critics, the film centers on thirteen key works which vividly represent the major turning points in Picasso's career. Robert Rosenblum, an art historian and a noted authority on Picasso, introduces us to these key works. Dominique Bozo, founder of the Musée Picasso, visits the places in Paris and the south of France where the artist lived and worked, and discusses the relationship between his milieu and art. Critic Clement Greenberg and Picasso's biographer Roland Penrose present their views on many important issues in Picasso's career. Several generations of painters and sculptors have had to contend with the scope of Picasso's vision. Among others, Henry Moore, Matta, Anthony Caro, David Hockney, George Segal, and Roy Lichtenstein comment on the ways in which Picasso's oeuvre has affected their own artistic sensibilities. Pablo Picasso: the legacy of a genius is an assessment of the 20th century's best known artist and his vast achievements
The New York school( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American art came of age with the first important modern movement by a group of New York painters who became known as abstract expressionists. In the 1940s and 50s their aggressive action painting challenged the School of Paris. Tenaciously American (though several were born abroad), these painters were not content to imitate European masters and styles. They were struggling to express their own transcendental values that emphasized freedom, impulse, and instinct, and favored large-scale canvases with broad, improvisational brushwork. Harold Rosenberg, author of the phrase "action painting," offers his valuable insights, as does fellow critic Clement Greenberg. Predictably, the two differ in their opinions, keeping alive the issues raised by the paintings themselves
