Frank Stella 1958 by Harry Cooper( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: For Frank Stella, 1958 was a crucial year. After graduating from Princeton University, he moved to Manhattan and painted a series of monumental, colorful canvases that culminated in the first of his famous "black paintings." This fascinating book focuses on the thirty works he painted that year. The paintings reflect his transformation from a student experimenting with abstract expressionism to a highly original artist whose works changed the course of postwar art. Presenting the entire series of paintings in color for the first time (except lost works known only through black-and-white photographs), this handsome book details the course of Stella's career in 1958. The authors situate his work in relation to that of Carl Andre, with whom Stella shared studio space that year, and Jasper Johns. Their analysis draws on concepts of originality, repetition, assemblage, and optimality. Drawing on new archival findings, firsthand observations of the paintings, and interviews with Stella and members of his circle, this volume enriches our understanding of a fascinating and critical stage in the artist's development
Harvard University Art Museums : a guide to the collections : Arthur M. Sackler Museum, William Hayes Fogg Art Museum, Busch-Reisinger Museum by Arthur M. Sackler Museum( Book )

From mind, heart, and hand : Persian, Turkish, and Indian drawings from the Stuart Cary Welch collection by Stuart Cary Welch( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A superb selection of drawings from the extraordinary collection of Stuart Cary Welch Stuart Cary Welch's collection of Persian, Turkish, and Indian art is renowned throughout the world for its quality and depth. In 1999, Welch made a generous gift of drawings to the Harvard University Art Museums, which form the basis of the present catalogue. Spanning five centuries and extending from Istanbul to Calcutta, these drawings represent the great empires of the Ottomans in Turkey, the Safavids in Iran, and the Mughals in India as well as numerous regional Hindu kingdoms. This beautifully illustrated book presents more than seventy exquisite drawings-some of which are counted among the greatest Indian, Persian, or Turkish drawings ever made-and explores the connections between the arts and artists of the three cultures. As with drawings from European traditions, the works display an immediacy that is often absent in paintings. The drawings deal with fascinating and diverse subjects ranging from court portraits, stories from fable and myth, and hunting scenes to animals, flowers, and people sketched from life. The contributors to the book shed light on various aspects of the drawings and the artists, and Welch offers an engaging account of his trials and triumphs while acquiring the works in his unparalleled collection. This book is the catalogue for an exhibition at the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco (September 17 to November 28, 2004) and at the Harvard University Art Museums (March 19 to June 12, 2005)

Medardo Rosso : second impressions by Harry Cooper( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Italian artist Medardo Rosso (1858-1928) is a key figure in the development of modern sculpture. His portraits and figure studies have long been considered sculptural equivalents to impressionism's concern with light at the expense of form. This book - the first comprehensive study of Rosso's art - presents an artist more deeply concerned with materials, process, and the reproduction of his works than previously imagined." "Rosso's fascination with technique is explored in detail from art historical, technical, and phenomenological perspectives. Drawing on a wealth of new archival material and close-up study of the sculptures, the authors show that Rosso's waxes - his best-known works - were not modeled by hand but cast with the help of gelatin molds. The authors compare wax, plaster, and bronze casts of the same subjects to show that the manipulation of materials for visual effect was at the heart of his work. The book also reproduces and analyzes Rosso's fascinating photographs of his own sculpture, which offer important clues to the charged relationship he sought to create between viewers and the mysterious busts and figures he made."--Jacket

Solomon collection, which includes a particularly rich selection of sixth-century pieces and is noteworthy for its focus on unglazed, cold-painted sculptures.
