Women impressionists by Ingrid Pfeiffer( Book )

"This book is a comprehensive introduction to the works of four women Impressionists: Berthe Morisot, a key protagonist of the Impressionist movement; Mary Cassatt, who had her own special role to play in the movement and was held in high esteem by fellow painter Edgar Degas; Eva Gonzales, a gifted artist and Edouard Manet's only student; and Marie Bracquemond, who abandoned painting in the interests of marital harmony." "This superbly illustrated book also contains essays by a number of writers, who besides providing a knowledgeable introduction to these four women painters, also succeed in conveying to us the context in which they worked."--Jacket
Hans Hofmann by Helmut Friedel( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hans Hofmann (1880-1966) is one of the most important figures of postwar American art, for both his own abstract paintings and his influence as the legendary teacher of generations of artists in Germany, New York, and Provincetown. His presence in New York, a link to Wassily Kandinsky, the Cubists, and Fauves, catalyzed the movement ultimately known as Abstract Expressionism, whose influence still pervades the aesthetic categories and practices of art today
Peter Doig by Peter Doig( Book )

16 editions published in 2008 in 3 languages and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peter Doig's highly distinctive paintings have been exhibited in major museums and galleries worldwide to international acclaim. In each work, Doig seeks to create an atmosphere that will draw the viewer into an intense and beguiling perceptual experience. Derived from photographic sources or quasi-memories, to form grand and magical tableaux, his pictorial world has also been shaped by the different places he has lived in. Born in Scotland, he was raised in Canada and spent two decades in London, before moving to Trinidad, where he now lives and works." "Accompanying a major retrospective exhibition, this lavishly illustrated book provides a comprehensive account of Doig's practice over two decades of extraordinary achievement. With an essay by Richard Shiff, an introduction by Tate curator Judith Nesbitt and an illuminating conversation between Doig and his friend, the artist Chris Ofili, this is a thorough and up-to-date survey of one of the most influential painters at work today"--Jacket

Henri Matisse : drawing with scissors : masterpieces from the late years by Henri Matisse( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Julian Schnabel : Malerei = paintings 1978-2003 by Julian Schnabel( Book )

25 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Julian Schnabel, who was born in 1951 in Brooklyn, New York, was among the young artists who were celebrated enthusiastically in the eighties for having helped revive painting, a genre which had been declared dead. His highly expressive large-format paintings soon made him a star of Neo-Expressive painting. Schnabel often uses unusual supports for his paintings - such as used army tarpaulins, porcelain plates, Mexican pottery, or animal skins - and his experimentation with materials is reflected in his painting as well. His works, which unite oil painting and collage, fluctuate between abstract and figurative, and are sometimes dominated by letters or words. This book presents sixty-five works from the past twenty-five years in full-page or double-page color illustrations. Photographs by Schnabel himself provide a look at the painter's opulent surroundings in his house and studio. The publication is completed by a detailed biography and essays by prominent authors."--Jacket
Edvard Munch : the modern eye by Edvard Munch( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Norwegian painter Edvard Munch (1863-1944) is best known for his painting "The Scream", painted in 1893, which has become one of the most iconic images in the modern world. Munch was clear about his own mission in exploring the portrayal of extreme human emotion. "Just as Leonardo da Vinci studied anatomy and dissected corpses", he wrote, "so I try to dissect souls". Perhaps because of the subsequent notoriety of "The Scream" and other works from his intensely productive early period, Munch is often presented as a 19th century figure, an inspiration for and precursor of the modern artists who succeeded him. In contrast, this important new survey, accompanying a major, touring exhibition, shows him to have been fully engaged with modernity, particularly by tracing his involvement with its key methods of representation: photography, cinematography and the theatrical mise-en-scene. In addition to a large number of instantly recognisable masterpieces, this lavishly illustrated book reproduces many lesser-known works, as well as a wide selection of Munch's photographs and sketches. Munch's photographs in particular will be a revelation to many; his moody and atmospheric self-portraits and the studio shots of models that are placed alongside finished paintings reveal the way one medium fed into another..."--Publisher description

Kingdom of the soul : symbolist art in Germany, 1870-1920 by Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published to accompany an important exhibition, this richly illustrated volume outlines the link between the Pre-Raphaelite artists in Britain and the Expressionists on the Continent. It focuses on the crucial contribution made by artists in Germany to the European Symbolist movement, providing for the first time a much-needed comparison to developments in England and other countries worldwide. Symbolism was a European cultural movement that was at its peak in the last two decades of the 19th century, profoundly affecting the visual arts and inextricably bound up with music and literature. While many Symbolists reacted against the materialism of 19th-century science and its implications, others sought to reconcile modern science with spiritual traditions. Symbolism stressed feeling and evocation over definition and fact and emphasized the power of suggestion. In Germany, artists including Arnold Bocklin, Ferdinand Hodler, and Kathe Kollwitz worked within the Symbolist tradition. By focusing on this neglected German axis between 1870 and 1920, Symbolist Art makes an important contribution to our understanding and appreciation of this fascinating period in art history

Yves Klein by Yves Klein( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yves Klein (1928-1962) was a truly visionary artist. The spectacular works and actions of the French artist and judo master attracted worldwide attention, which was further magnified by his untimely death. The product of a career that spanned a mere seven years, his multifaceted oeuvre anticipated such phenomena as happening and performance as well as Land, Body, and Conceptual Art. Art had no boundaries for Yves Klein. He became involved in architecture - at the practical level as the designer of the music theater in Gelsenkirchen and as a theorist with his ideas for air architecture. He also explored both aspects of immateriality and zones of pictorial sensibility." "The volume featuring full-color illustrations of more then one hundred works covers all of Klein's creative phases, from the first Monochromes in different colors to his famous blue paintings (I.K.B. - International Klein Blue) to his sponge reliefs and sculptures, the controversial anthropometries in which Klein used female models as "living brushes," his gold-leaf Monogolds and his last experiments with fire and the elements of nature." "Articles by seven authors shed light on the artist and his work from different perspectives. Comments on the man and his art by friends and contemporaries as well as a detailed biography accompanied by numerous documentary photographs showing Yves Klein in his working and living environment round out this presentation."--Jacket

Gustave Caillebotte : an impressionist and photography by Karin Sagner( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in German and English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The paintings of Gustave Caillebotte depict striking Parisian street scenes, from Boulevard Haussmann and The Bridge of Europe looking out onto the Gare Saint-Lazare to Caillebotte's best-known work, Paris Street, Rainy Day, which hangs in Chicago's Art Institute today. Caillebotte has long been acknowledged as an important painter--and munificent patron--of the French impressionist movement. Yet his paintings, in their near-photographic precision, stand apart from the works of Renoir and Monet in important ways. Gustave Caillebotte: An Impressionist and Photography sets out to explore the development of the artist's distinctive style. Though there is no evidence that Caillebotte practiced photography, he took an early interest in the art form, influenced perhaps by his brother, the photographer Martial Caillebotte. As a result, Gustave Caillebotte's paintings show an emphasis on realism and often take on the composition and perspective of a photograph as well, with figures toward the center in sharp focus, while those in the foreground or background remain indistinct. Karin Sagner and Max Hollein have carefully chosen from among Caillebotte's works a selection of paintings that exemplify this characteristic of the artist's style. They are presented here alongside critical essays and works by photographers who were Caillebotte's contemporaries and shared an affinity for documenting the nineteenth-century French capital, including André Kertész, Wols and László Moholy-Nagy, Édouard Baldus, Charles Marville, and Eugène Atget. While there have been many studies of Caillebotte's work, this is the first book to publish his paintings side-by-side with a selection of early photographs taken between 1850 and 1930. Together, they establish Caillebotte as the pioneer of a radically modern photographic form that added a new dimension to French impressionism and exerted an important influence on later photography."
