The essential Joseph Beuys by Alain Borer( Book )

16 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in English and Portuguese and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joseph Beuys (1921-1986) was one of the most original and influential artists of the twentieth century. Challenging the traditional confines of art, he embraced a broader, philosophically and politically based practice formulated in the dictum "Everyone is an artist." His unique approach to the creative process transformed materials such as felt, fat, honey, blood, wax, copper, and sulfur into fluent and expressive artistic media. Called the most olfactory artist in history, he preferred the smells of the pungent and decaying, just as he favored the indecent, ugly, and disfigured over the polished, shiny, tasteful products of city slickers and social seekers
Women seeing women : a pictorial history of women's photography from Julia Margaret Cameron to Annie Leibovitz( Book )

19 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Women have been making photographs since the medium's invention, for scientific purposes, to earn a living through portraiture or journalistic activities, and for artistic expression. For almost that long, they have been turning their cameras on other women: at first taking the easiest models available to them-their mothers, sisters, daughters, friends, and servants-and later choosing feminist standpoints or investigating the conditions of femininity in their own cultures. This compendium of camera work by and of women embraces a chronological survey of the medium as well as an emotional journey through women's relationships caught on film. Photographers like Julia Margaret Cameron and Gertrude Kasebier share space with Dorothea Lange, Berenice Abbott, and Cindy Sherman. These well-known photographers in turn sit side by side with lesser known, sometimes virtually anonymous women who have left behind an invaluable record of the way they viewed the world

Marlon Brando : portraits and film stills 1946-1995 by Marlon Brando( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and German and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the November 9, 1957 issue of The New Yorker, Truman Capote published a controversial profile of Marlon Brando called "The Duke in His Domain." This revealing essay turned out to be one of the most intimate interviews ever granted by the reclusive actor. Capote, the consummate observer, dug into the psyche of the actor who had sky-rocketed to fame in the late 1940s and who, even today, remains an enigma to audiences around the world. This revealing interview is gloriously illuminated with 87 photographs in both duotone and color, spanning the entire career of Brando from A Streetcar Named Desire to Don Juan DeMarco. Here is Brando in the roles he claimed as his own in The Wild One, Viva Zapata, Julius Caesar, On the Waterfront, Sayonara, Mutiny on the Bounty, The Godfather, Last Tango in Paris and many others

Tarkovsky by Andreĭ Arsenʹevich Tarkovskiĭ( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tarkovsky’s films are characterized by metaphysical themes, extended takes, an absence of conventional dramatic structure and plot, and a dream-like, visionary style of cinematography. They achieve a spiritual intensity and transcendent beauty that many consider to be without parallel. He directed the first five of his seven films – Ivan’s Childhood, Andrei Rublev, Solaris, Mirror and Stalker – in the Soviet Union, but in 1982 defected to Italy, where he made Nostalgia. His final film, The Sacrifice, was produced in Sweden in 1985. This book presents extended sequences of stills from each of the films alongside synopses and cast and crew listings. It includes reflections on Tarkovsky’s work from fellow artists and writers including Jean-Paul Sartre and Ingmar Bergman, for whom Tarkovsky was ‘the greatest, the one who invented a new language.’ Extracts from Tarkovsky’s own writings and diaries offer a wealth of insights into his poetic and philosophical views on cinematography, which he described as ‘sculpting in time’. The book also reproduces many personal Polaroid photographs that confirm the extraordinary poetic vision of a great artist who died aged only 54, but who remains a potent influence on artists and filmmakers today"--provided by publisher
