Kahlo by Gerry Souter( )

31 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Behind Frida Kahlo's 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
Edward Hopper : light and dark by Gerry Souter( )

26 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 1,758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents a series of reproductions (etchings, watercolors, and oil on canvas paintings) from American realist painter and printmaker Edward Hopper (1882-1967). In both his urban and rural scenes, his sparse and finely calculated renderings reflected his personal vision of modern American life. 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 colors and inhabited by anonymous characters, Hoppers paintings also symbolically reflect the Great Depression. Despite his numerous trips to Europe, he remained impervious to the major trends revolutionizing painting at the time, such as cubism or surrealism. Dedicated to a very personal approach to his subjects, he modeled himself on classical painters, such as Rembrandt, Degas, or Daumier. His paintings of gas stations, motels, and scenes from everyday life represent an aesthetic testimony to individualism, wide open spaces, and the fundamental values of the American nation
American realism by Gerry Souter( )

22 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and French and held by 970 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 811 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 506 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

Georgia O'Keeffe by Gerry Souter( )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 442 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

O'Keeffe by Gerry Souter( )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in 1887, Georgia O'Keeffe is one of the great figures in the history of the emancipation of modern art from its American essence. At a time when women were primarily wives and mothers, O'Keefe defied convention when she became first the companion, then the wife, of the famous photographer and father of American modern art, Alfred Stieglitz. Georgia O'Keeffe is known above all for her complex visual descriptions of nature: the delicacy of an autumn leaf, the subtle nuances of a flower petal, or the symmetry of an animal's head. Today, we associate her name with bright colours and the auste
