Most widely held works by Michael Mazur
Good to Pull (Bon À Tirer) by Robert Gardner( Visual )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Making marks, or causing them to be made as in the case of filmmakers, is what artists do. They see, imagine, hallucinate some shape, color or tone and then pick up their tools to render it in steel, light, copper or almost anything else. Here are three examples of what can happen
Looking East : Brice Marden, Michael Mazur, Pat Steir by John R Stomberg( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Western artists have incorporated Asian styles and techniques into their work at different periods since the 1860s, says Stomberg, but the Looking East artists draw on that legacy in entirely new ways. All three painters, East Coast natives who were born at roughly the same time and studied with some of the same teachers, became fascinated with the art of China in the 1980s after pursuing very different paths. Marden made his reputation as a minimalist in the 1960s and 1970s, Mazur turned to realism, and Steir became a leader in the postmodernist movement

Genesis by Horst Seebass( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and Hebrew and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Genesis begins with the making of heaven and earth and all life, and ends with the image of a mummy--Joseph's--in a coffin. In between come many of the primal stories in Western culture: Adam and Eve's expulsion from the garden of Eden, Cain's murder of Abel, Noah and the Flood, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Abraham's binding of Isaac, the covenant of God and Abraham, Isaac's blessing of Jacob in place of Esau, the saga of Joseph and his brothers
Three art makers : the great sail, dancing with Miklos, good to pull( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great sail: Alexander Calder's La Grande Voile was erected on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus in 1966 with the artist directing the work. As the spectacular steel forms of this monumental stabile rise, it is filmed with time lapse and verite photography. One can see that the structure owes its spare elegance to the precision of its design and constaruction. Calder remains absorbed in quiet concentration as skeptical students and bemused bystanders observe the somewhat improbable event

"Michael Mazur is unique among contemporary artists, equally gifted as a painter and graphic artist. Steeped in the history of printmaking, he has balanced in his work graphic experimentation and innovation, technical virtuosity, and a wealth of unforgettable images. Mazur is a humanist, all his imagery rooted in the natural world. He has also played a leading role in the contemporary revival of the monotype, a major means of expression that occupies a central place in his own work." "This volume brings together essays by four leading authorities, covering various aspects of Mazur's life and career."--BOOK JACKET
