Kiki Smith : a gathering, 1980-2005 by Siri Engberg( Book )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Widely considered to be one of the most engaging and fascinating artists of our time, Kiki Smith has, over the past 25 years, developed into a major figure in the world of 21st-century art. Her subject matter is as wide-ranging as the materials her work has encompassed. In the 1980s, with her earliest figural sculptures in plaster, glass, and wax, Smith developed an elaborate vocabulary around the forms and functions of the body and its metaphorical as well as physical relationship to society. By the early 1990s she began to engage with themes of a more religious and mythological nature. Her re-imaginings of biblical women as inhabitants of physical bodies--rather than as abstract bearers of doctrine--led her to make a series of sculptural works related to the figure of the Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene, Lilith, and others. The artist has more recently considered fairy tales and folk narratives as well as nurturing a growing menagerie of work concerned with animals and the natural world. Smith has now earned a considerable reputation as a virtuoso printmaker and draftsperson, and as a re-inventor of the startling sculptural possibitilies present in materials ranging from paper and resin to bronze and porcelain. Organized by the Walker Art Center with the full collaboration of the artist, the exhibition Kiki Smith represents the artist¹s first full-scale touring museum retrospective in the United States. This accompanying exhibition catalogue is a comprensive volume that includes critical essays, an interview, a generous four-color plate section, a complete exhibition history and bibliography, and the first-ever comprehensive illustrated chronology of Smith¹s life and work
The body in pieces : the fragment as a metaphor of modernity by Linda Nochlin( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the end of the eighteenth century a sense of anxiety and crisis began to preoccupy European writers and artists in their relationship to the heroic past, from antiquity on. The grandness of that intellectual tradition could no longer fit into the framework of the present, and artists felt overwhelmed by the magnitude of past heroic accomplishment. Beginning with artists such as Fuseli, this was soon reflected in artistic representation. The partial image, the "crop," fragmentation, ruin and mutilation - all expressed nostalgia and grief for the loss of a vanished totality, a utopian wholeness. Often, such feelings were expressed in deliberate destructiveness and this became the new way of seeing: the notion of the modern. The "crop" constituted a distinctively modern view of the world, the essence of modernity itself. The French Revolution was not only an historical event that instituted and canonized deliberate fragmentation, but also in some cases the reverse: Jacques-Louis David and other Neo-classical artists tried, at least allegorically and metaphorically, to repair the broken link with the perceived wholeness of the past. In The Body in Pieces, Linda Nochlin traces these developments as they have been expressed in representations of the human figure - fragmented, mutilated and fetishistic - by looking at work produced by artists from Neo-classicism and Romanticism to the Impressionists, the Post-Impressionists, the Surrealists and beyond
Woman as sex object; studies in erotic art, 1730-1970 by Thomas B Hess( Book )

15 editions published between 1972 and 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Erotic art-- its subject Woman-- has always been made by and for men. In this volume, a dozen distinguished art historians reassess female imagery-- seen through the eyes of male artists-- and its range from sensual bliss through domesticity to threat and even terror."--Dust jacket
Bathers, bodies, beauty : the visceral eye by Linda Nochlin( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What meets the eye in Renoir's paintings of nude bathers? To some viewers, they are the very picture of female sensuality and beauty. To others, they embody a whole tradition of masculine mastery and feminine display. Yet others find in these naked women a fantasy of bodily liberation. The points of view are many, various, and occasionally startling. Linda Nochlin's aim in looking at works of art is not to construct a unitary response but to pull things apart, to leave the reader unsettled, confronting the contradictions - about the body, beauty, and ways of viewing - in the work of impressionists, modern masters, contemporary realists, and postmodernists."--Jacket
Mary Frank : encounters by Linda Nochlin( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume by Linda Nochlin explores Frank's paintings of the past decade, particularly her large-scale triptychs, which in form are reminiscent of the classic Christian altarpiece. Among the more than forty full-color illustrations of her work are foldouts revealing both interior and exterior views of these monumental works, which incorporate the unifying themes and imagery that have dominated Frank's work for thirty years: lyrical and mythical figures, manifestations of the natural world, and ambiguous spaces. In her hands, this personal vocabulary is subject to unlimited reconfiguration, establishing Mary Frank as a visual poet and a major figure in the art of this country." "In addition to Nochlin's descriptive interpretation of Frank's most recent work, the book includes a chronology of Frank's life, from her birth in London and move to the United States as a child, to her early training in art and dance, to her publication, collection and exhibition history, and the awards and honors she has received."--Jacket
