Dan Flavin : a retrospective by Michael Govan( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book - the first retrospective publication of Flavin's art since 1969 - features the artist's most significant light works, beginning with a pivotal series of constructed boxes with attached incandescent or fluorescent lights, called icons, made from 1961 to 1963. These icons demonstrate the influence of painters such as Barnett Newman as well as object makers such as Marcel Duchamp. Works spanning Flavin's career are discussed in depth, including examples that integrate light with the surrounding space and show the particular characteristics of blended fluorescent light, large-scale installations, and constructed corridors. The book also features reproductions of Flavin's drawings, which reveal his thought processes, working methods, and the wider range of his interests." "Three critical essays offer overviews and new interpretations of Flavin's work, while an extensive chronology, comprehensive bibliography, and exhibition history present scholarly data never before available. In addition, this book includes Flavin's seminal text "' ... in daylight or cool white.' an autobiographical sketch," originally published in Artforum in 1965, and two interviews with the artist - one from 1972 and the other from 1982." "With many new color reproductions, Dan Flavin: A Retrospective captures the artist's challenging contribution to twentieth-century art and will be the authoritative volume on Flavin for years to come."--Jacket
Philip Guston retrospective by Philip Guston( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, the most comprehensive survey of Guston's art to date, is published on the occasion of a major international exhibition. It brings together for the first time the different bodies of the artist's work, exposing the connective threads between each of his developmental stages. In-depth essays by a noted group of critics and art historians explore Guston's early influences and the emergence of symbols that resurfaced and played prominent roles in his late work. They provide insight into Guston's philosophy regarding abstraction, his role within its development, and the social and art historical context from which his so-called "Klan" paintings emerged. In addition, one of Guston's own essays on art and innovation is reprinted." "Also included are selections of drawings that act as both prelude and restatement at each stage of the artist's career; a number of works from Guston's Estate that have never been exhibited before and that shed new light on his development; an extensive illustrated chronology of the artist's life and career; and a comprehensive bibliography."--Jacket
Anselm Kiefer : heaven and earth by Anselm Kiefer( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A retrospective volume of Anselm Kiefer's work, this book addresses the artist's entire career through the lens of one compelling theme." "From his earliest sculptures to his recent highly textured paintings, Anselm Kiefer has woven themes of heaven and earth into his work, exploring the polarities of these ideas while struggling to define the transcendent quality that places art squarely in between. Destruction and rebirth, glory and shame, sin and redemption all figure largely in Kiefer's often controversial depictions of Germany's physical and cultural landscape. This book of more than fifty reproductions includes Kiefer's first work, The Heavens, as well as numerous other rare early works and recent works being presented for the first time. It features an interview with the artist, which is accompanied by rich black-and-white photographs of his ongoing monumental installations on his property in Barjac, France."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Howard Hodgkin paintings by Howard Hodgkin( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An up-to-date catalogue raisonne of Hodgkin's oil paintings, the first to appear in print, completes the volume.

Arshile Gorky : the breakthrough years by Dore Ashton( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michael Auping's valuable text provides an introduction to the life and art of Arshile Gorky as well as an insightful consideration of the grand psychological landscape The Liver is the Cock's Comb, 1944, a work pivotal to the development of Gorky's style. Dore Ashton writes a lucid account of this artist who tends to resist classification, contributing an art historical overview of Gorky's appreciation of such modern innovators of abstraction and Surrealism as Miro and Kandinsky. Matthew Spender provides biographical details of Gorky's early years, while a selection of Gorky's personal letters further sheds an intimate light on the artist and his achievements
Robert Bechtle: a retrospective by Robert Bechtle( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tracing the full arc of Robert Bechtle's career from the 1960s to the present day, this publication illuminates the artistic practice of one of the most significant painters associated with the photorealist movement." "Published to coincide with a major retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, this catalogue features nearly one hundred reproductions of Bechtle's most important paintings as well as intimate watercolors and drawings. These plates demonstrate the range of the San Francisco-based painter's iconic imagery of California - the rows of palm trees, the stucco houses, and the ubiquitous automobiles that spurred suburban expansion - in addition to his lesser-known but equally compelling family scenes and stark interiors."--Jacket
Lucian Freud portraits by Sarah Howgate( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and French and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Portraits were central to the work of Lucian Freud (1922-2011). Working only from life, the artists claimed, "I could never put anything into a picture that wasn't actually there in front of me." This major retrospective catalogue surveys Freud's portraits across the seven decades of his career. Featuring the finest portraits from public and private collections around the world, the book explores the stylistic development and remarkable technical virtuosity of an artist regarded as one of the most innovative figurative painters the medium has known. Freud's chosen subjects were often his intimates--family members, friends, and artistic colleagues such as Frank Auerbach, Francis Bacon, Leigh Bowery, and David Hockney. Freud was a private man who rarely gave interviews, and his thoughts on the complex relationship between artist and sitter and the challenges of painting nudes and self-portraits are published here for the first time, documented in a series of interviews with Michael Auping, conducted between May 2009 and January 2011. An illustrated chronology of the artist's life provides fascinating insights into Freud's background as a grandson of Sigmund Freud, and his unorthodox artistic education

"This volume features a complete catalogue of more than 750 of the artist's light works. The first publication to present all of Flavin's lights together and the only book to document the artist's entire career, The Complete Lights features hundreds of color images, many reproduced from new photography.

In this way, The Complete Lights enables the reader to gain insights into the development of the work, the artist's working methods, and the wider range of his interests and serves as a resource for students, scholars, dealers, and collectors." "New scholarship and interpretation of Flavin's work also appears in the form of three critical essays by experts and an extensive chronology, comprehensive bibliography, and exhibition history. In addition, this book includes Flavin's text, "' ... in daylight or cool white.' an autobiographical sketch," originally published in Artforum in 1965, and two interviews with the artist - one from 1972 and the other from 1982"--Jacket

From the Publisher: A retrospective volume of Susan Rothenberg's work, this book addresses the artist's entire career to date, focusing on her unique methods and themes. Full-color illustrations and foldouts of Rothenberg's best- known early works as well as exciting new paintings afford readers the chance to observe the evolution of Rothenberg's themes. From her earliest horse paintings through her spinning figures of the 1980s and early 1990s to her most recent series of paintings of dismembered puppets, this book highlights key compositional strategies in Rothenberg's work. Michael Auping contributes an essay addressing Rothenberg's painting process and the eclectic influences that have helped shape her figurative and spatial distortions. Barbara Buhler Lynes addresses Rothenberg's work in the context of Santa Fe and the tradition of twentieth-century women artists it has inspired, from Mable Dodge Luhan to Georgia O'Keeffe to Agnes Martin
Ed Ruscha : Road Tested by Michael Auping( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since his first road trip in 1956, driving from Oklahoma City to Los Angeles, Ed Ruscha has continued to muse on America as seen from the road: "I like being in the car, and seeing things from that vantage point," he has said. "Sometimes I give myself assignments to go out on the road and explore different ideas. My books are an example of that." Consisting of around 75 works spanning the artist's entire career, Ed Ruscha: Road Tested includes many of the famous aforementioned artist's books, including Twenty-Six Gasoline Stations, Real Estate Opportunities, Some Los Angeles Apartments, Thirty-Four Parking Lots and the groundbreaking artist's book Every Building on the Sunset Strip; some of Ruscha's most iconic paintings, such as the "Standard Stations" and the "Hollywood Signs," as well as paintings inspired by street names and road signs; and his exploration of the topography of greater Los Angeles in paintings that depict aerial grids of the city, as well as various southern California horizons and sunsets. Also examined here is the rarely seen Ruscha film Miracle (1975), which tells the story of a mechanic whose obsessive repair of the carburetor on a 1965 Mustang dooms his date with a beautiful woman. The first-ever treatment of a primary theme in the artist's career, Road Tested at last gives Ed Ruscha his own road show

Duane Hanson by Marco Livingstone( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and French and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Excellente introduction à l'art du sculpteur américain Duane Hanson, dont les oeuvres hyperréalistes étonnent par leur vérité. Ces sculptures de personnages décrivent des gens ordinaires, pour la plupart obèses et négligés, pris dans des situations familières. Ces êtres mélancoliques reflètent l'intérêt certain de Hanson pour les pauvres et les faibles, mais nous obligent aussi à "regarder" la réalité en face, à réfléchir sur notre société et ses valeurs
