Kahlo by Gerry Souter( )

34 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 3,811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Behind Frida Kahlos portraits, lies the story of her life - a body of work drawn from cries of anger and fury, blended into a potent, and artistically exceptional, combination. At six years of age, she suffered a bout of polio, and she was just 18 when a terrible bus accident changed her life forever, leaving her handicapped and burdened with constant physical pain. But her explosive character, raw determination and hard work helped to shape her artistic talent. Frida Kahlo managed to forge a place for herself in the macho society of Mexico, despite the double handicap of her crushed body and her sex. Frida Kahlos work plays an important part in the artistic heritage of Mexico, her native country, with both its novelty and its multi-cultural values. The story and the paintings that Frida created provide a rare and courageous account of a woman on a voyage of constant self-discovery

Edward Hopper : light and dark by Gerry Souter( )

34 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 2,358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his works, Hopper poetically expressed the solitude of man confronted to the American way of life as it developed in the 1920s. Inspired by the movies and particularly by the various camera angles and attitudes of characters, his paintings expose the alienation of mass culture. Done in cold colours and inhabited by anonymous characters, Hopper's paintings also symbolically reflect the Great Depression. Through a series of different reproductions (etchings, watercolours, and oil-on-canvas paintings), as well as thematic and artistic analysis, the author sheds new light on the enigmatic and tortured world of this outstanding figure"
Georgia O'Keeffe by Gerry Souter( )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1905 Georgia travelled to Chicago to study painting at the Art Institute of Chicago. In 1907 she enrolled at the Art Students' League in New York City, where she studied with William Merritt Chase. During her time in New York she became familiar with the 291 Gallery owned by her future husband, photographer Alfred Stieglitz. In 1912, she and her sisters studied at university with Alon Bement, who employed a somewhat revolutionary method in art instruction originally conceived by Arthur Wesley Dow. In Bement's class, the students did not mechanically copy nature, but instead were taught the principles of design using geometric shapes. They worked at exercises that included dividing a square, working within a circle and placing a rectangle around a drawing, then organising the composition by rearranging, adding or eliminating elements. It sounded dull and to most students it was. But Georgia found that these studies gave art its structure and helped her understand the basics of abstraction. During the 1920s O'Keeffe also produced a huge number of landscapes and botanical studies during annual trips to Lake George. With Stieglitz's connections in the arts community of New York - from 1923 he organised an O'Keeffe exhibition annually - O'Keeffe's work received a great deal of attention and commanded high prices. She, however, resented the sexual connotations people attached to her paintings, especially during the 1920s when Freudian theories became a form of what today might be termed "pop psychology". The legacy she left behind is a unique vision that translates the complexity of nature into simple shapes for us to explore and make our own discoveries. She taught us there is poetry in nature and beauty in geometry. Georgia O'Keeffe's long lifetime of work shows us new ways to see the world, from her eyes to ours

American realism by Gerry Souter( )

25 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The unconventional movement of American Realism allowed artists to break free from the established traditions of art in America and enabled the birth of a true national artistic identity. Through detailed descriptions of both the strong personalities and the artistic exchanges marking this movement, Souter shows the reader how these artists radically altered the art of their time and forever impacted the history of art."--Publisher description

Malevich : journey to infinity by Gerry Souter( )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 943 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kazimir Malevich (1878 - 1935) was a painter and a great art theorist but first and foremost he was the founder of Suprematism (pure abstraction), a style based on geometrical forms. "Suprematism" he wrote, "has led me to discover something that had not been understood until then _ there is in human consciousness an imperious desire of space and the will to escape from Earth?" This new publication presents the brilliant works of Malevich, the original painter, who until the age of twentyseven had no professional background as a painter, and who learned to draw out of curiosity and out of his will to learn. Gerry Souter once more offers us the works of a brilliant artist as well as a new perspective on the artist's personality."--Pub. website

Alexander Calder by Gerry Souter( )

3 editions published in 2011 in 3 languages and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexander Calder was an American sculptor, born in Philadelphia in 1898 and died in 1976 of a heart attack in New York, where he had gone to open a retrospective of his work. Son of two artists, and himself a trained engineer, Calder mostly created mobiles, assembled from pieces that would move with the currents of the air, stabiles or stationary statues made from cut sheet metal, and paintings. His art is poetic, merry and popular, """"the sublimation of a tree in the wind"""" according to Marcel Duchamp. He went on to develop a fascination with the theme of the circus, which reached its zen

Diego Rivera : su arte y sus pasiones by Gerry Souter( )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2018 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ya conocia a Diego Rivera, el muralista mexicano, mucho antes de encontrarme con los otros "Diego Rivera" que circulaban por el mundo entre principios del siglo XX y finales de la decada de los 50, (...) Mientras que sus pintura de caballete constituyen un amplio corpus dentro de su obra temprana y tardia, sus murales unicos hacen estallar las paredes en una explosion de representaciones de gran virtuosismo cuya organizacion conmociona la mente dell espectador. En estas paredes se juntan el hombre, su leyenda y sus mitos, su talento tecnico, su intensa focalizacion sobre la narracion de la Historia y sus convicciones ideologicas propensas a la autoindulgencia." (Gerry Souter) Gerry Souter, autor del excelente libro Frida Kahlo, hace a un lado su gran admiracion por Diego Rivera para darle al artista una dimension humana, basada en sus opinioes politicas, sus amorios y su conviccion de que "en lo profundo de sus ser (...) estaba Mexico, el lenguaje de sus pensamientos, la sangre en sus venas, el cielo azul por encima de su lugar de reposo"--Amazon.com
Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera by Gerry Souter( )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Detrás de los retratos de Frida Kahlo se ocultan tanto la historia de su vida como la de su obra. Es precisamente esta combinación lo que cautiva al espectador. La obra de Frida es un testimonio de su vida. Pocas veces se puede aprender tanto acerca de un artista con solo contemplar lo que inscribe dentro del marco de sus cuadros. Frida Kahlo es sin lugar a dudas la ofrenda de México a la historia del arte. La historia y las pinturas que Frida nos dejó revelan el valiente relato de una mujer en constante búsqueda de sí misma. Al lado de Frida estuvo siempre el gran pintor y muralista mexicano Diego Rivera cuyos murales únicos hacen estallar las paredes en una explosión de represetaciones de gran virtuosismo y su organización conmociona la mente del espectador. En esas paredes se juntan el hombre, su leyenda y sus mitos, su talento técnico, su intensa focalización sobre la narración de la historia y sus convicciones ideológicas propensas a la auto-indulgencia."--Provided by Casa del Libro
