Three artists (three women) : modernism and the art of Hesse, Krasner, and O'Keeffe by Anne Middleton Wagner( )

16 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 2,709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Art historian Wagner looks at the imagery and careers of three important figures in the history of twentieth-century art: Eva Hesse, Lee Krasner, and Georgia O'Keeffe, relating their work to three decisive moments in the history of American modernism: the avant-garde of the 1920s, the New York School of the 1940s and 1950s, and the modernist redefinition undertaken in the 1960s. Their artistic contributions were invaluable, Wagner demonstrates, as well as hard-won. She also shows that the fact that these artists were women--the main element linking the three--is as much the index of difference among their art and experience as it is a passkey to what they share.--From publisher description

"In this book Anne Middleton Wagner offers a new reading of the sculpture of Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, and Jacob Epstein. Looking again at key carvings by each, Wagner brings to light their shared avant-garde materialism, and insists we take seriously the common theme running through their work and so much other art of the period: the passionate bonding of mother and child."--Jacket

Revolution in the making : abstract sculpture by women, 1947-2016 by Emily Rothrum( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and Ewondo and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The catalogue accompanies the most comprehensive exhibition of postwar abstract sculpture by women artists. Revolution in the Making traces the ways in which women artists deftly transformed the language of sculpture. The volume seeks to identify the multiple strains of proto-feminist practices, characterized by abstraction and repetition, which rejected the singularity of the masterwork. Divided into four sections, the book will feature approximately thirty artists and nearly 100 works in total: the postwar era (the late 1950s) including such historically important predecessors as Ruth Asawa, Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, Claire Falkenstein, and Louise Nevelson; the 1960s and 1970s, highlighting a generation of post-minimalist artists who ignited a revolution in their use of process-oriented materials and methods; the 1980s and 1990s, the period that moved beyond singular, three-dimensional objects toward architectonic works characterized by repetition, structure, and design; and post-2000 works by artists who created installation-based environments, embracing domestic materials and craft as an embedded discourse."

Sarah Lucas, having emerged in the UK in the late 1980s alongside artists including Tracey Emin and Damien Hirst, gained notoriety for her bawdy and irreverent sculptures. Often using found objects, Lucas provokes viewers with works that challenge our notions of gender, sexuality, and identity. Featuring eight essays and an interview with the artist, this volume reveals the breadth and complexity of Lucas's work in sculpture, photography, and installation over the past three decades." --

Anthony McCall : 1970s works on paper( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the early 1970s Anthony McCall has been working with projected light. His "solid-light" installations occupy a space between line-drawing, cinema, and sculpture: fundamentally graphic, they are realized through the mediums of film or digital projection and the effect created is that of large-scale, three-dimensional sculptures composed of shifting membranes of light. Viewing becomes an active process of moving around and through the projected object, exploring it from different points of view. Along with working drawings for the 'Vertical Works' shown at Ambika P3, 'Works on Paper' includes a the drawings from the last 40 years of McCall's career, and showcases key works such as Landscape for Fire (1972) and Five- Minute Drawing (1974). This publication is the definitive monograph on this body of work by Anthony McCall--Supplied by publisher
