Barbara Hepworth : a retrospective by Penelope Curtis( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barbara Hepworth's career spanned five decades, from 1925 to 1975. Her style moved from figuration, through geometric and organic abstraction, to the internationally acclaimed grandeur of her large-scale, post-war work. Her best known sculpture is associated with the landscape around St. Ives in Cornwall: 'I used colour and strings in many of the carvings ... The colour plunged me into the depths of water, caves or shadows deeper than the carved concavities themselves. The strings were the tension I felt between myself and the sea, the wind or the hills.'. This publication focuses on Hepworth's unique carvings. It reassesses her reputation in the light of attention recently paid to her contemporaries, Ben Nicholson and Henry Moore and offers the opportunity to look afresh at a major British artist
Afro modern : journeys through the Black Atlantic by Tate Liverpool( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text addresses a key area of post-colonial studies coined by Paul Gilroy in 1993 - the notion of 'The Black Atlantic'- and its relation to visual art from 1900. The concept of the Black Atlantic demonstrates how black artists and intellectuals have been central to the formation of modernity
Nam June Paik by Nam June Paik( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and German and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nam June Paik (1932-2006) was one of the most innovative artists of the 20th century. His influence is still felt in music, the visual arts, film, and video. Extensively illustrated, with extracts from interviews and reminiscences from many who were close to Paik during his lifetime, this is the most thorough and illuminating exploration of Paik's legacy yet published. Born in South Korea, Paik began his career as a composer in Japan and in Germany, where he met John Cage and collaborated with Joseph Beuys. Moving to New York in 1964, he formed relationships with a number of artists associated with the Fluxus group, particularly the cellist Charlotte Moorman, who became one of his closest collaborators. He continued to experiment in performance and video art, famously using manipulated televisions as elements in sculptural works, creating robot sculptures and installations. An international range of contributors trace the course of Paik's life and career, exploring his connections with key figures in the 20th-century avant-garde, his theoretical writings, and his lasting influence."--Publisher description

Gustav Klimt : painting, design and modern life by Gustav Klimt( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) remains one of the most popular artists of the early 20th century. Published to accompany a major exhibition at Tate Liverpool, a highlight of that city's 2008 Capital of Culture celebrations and the first such show in the UK, Gustav Klimt explores the life and work of an intriguing figure at the heart of the cultural transformation of Vienna around 1900." "Central to the book is the first thorough examination of the relationship between Klimt's paintings and the work of his close friend the architect and designer Josef Hoffmann. Reaching beyond the two-dimensional arts, it hails the advent of an all-inclusive design culture that embraced interiors, furniture, clothing and jewellery. Essays by leading scholars and curators consider key works, events and developments: the founding of the Viennese Secession, the inaugural display of the Beethoven Frieze, and a series of collaborative ventures in the creation of total domestic environments for the pursuit of 'modern life', among them the Villa Waerndorfer in Vienna and the Villa Primavesi in rural northern Moravia. In addition, Klimt is assessed as both an accomplished erotic draughtsman and a seductive landscape painter."--Jacket

Minimalism by Tate Gallery Liverpool( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jackson Pollock : blind spots( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jackson Pollock (1912-56) was one of the most radical, influential and provocative American artists of the twentieth century. In 1947 he developed a unique method of dripping trails of paint onto a canvas laid flat on the floor, pioneering the completely abstract 'all-over' style known as abstract expressionism. This lavishly illustrated publication accompanies the first exhibition in over three decades of the next crucial phase of his work, referred to as the black pourings. Produced between 1951 and 1953, these paintings signalled a deliberate move away from the iconic drip technique and, most surprisingly, sometimes even featured figurative elements. Fifty years after the appearance of his groundbreaking essay, Michael Fried has now produced a thorough reappraisal of the works especially for this publication. Essays by Jo Applin, Gavin Delahunty and Stephanie Straine further explore the paintings and their related drawings, regarded as Pollock's most important as a draughtsman, as well as rarely seen sculptures that further illuminate Pollock's experimentations with space, density and figuration"--Publisher's description

Critical perspectives on contemporary painting : hybridity, hegemony, historicism( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays examines and assesses the current status of painting within global contemporary art. The meaning and value of 'painting' as both a category and a set of practices is analysed ... also included are perceptive contributions from several contemporary artists. Concerned with the internationalisation of contemporary art as a feature of globalisation, Critical Perspectives on Contemporary Painting sheds new light on fine art understood as a facet of a global culture and society dominated by northern and European-US power and history. What kinds of resistance to this hegemony might be possible for artists located in the 'third world' yet inescapably implicated in the big business of the 'art world'?"--Cover
