Painting on paper : Josef Albers in America by Josef Albers( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication presents a wealth of in part unknown colored works on paper by Josef Albers (1888-1976), documented for the first time. It was not until the German-born artist emigrated to the U.S. that he emerged as a prominent artist and influential teacher. Beginning in about 1940, Albers allowed himself to be inspired by Mexico's pre-Columbian architecture, sculpture and textile art, which led to a liberation of his aesthetic sensibilities and to unconventional, radiant pitches of color, the likes of which modern painting in Europe had never seen before. In ca. 1950, he discovered the square, in his eyes the ideal form for color. He was both a resolute painter as well as a color philosopher. Each of the works on paper presented here arouses a sensuous fascination for the phenomenality of color
Walker Evans : depth of field by Walker Evans( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This resplendent volume is the most comprehensive study of Walker Evans's work ever published, containing masterful images accompanied by authoritative commentary from leading photography historians. The name Walker Evans conjures images of the American everyman. Whether it's his iconic contributions to James Agee's depression-era classic book, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, his architectural explorations of antebellum plantations, or his subway series, taken with a camera hidden in his coat, Evans's accessible and eloquent photographs speak to us all. This comprehensive book traces the entire arc of Evans's remarkable career, from the 1930s to the 1970s. The illustrations in the book range from his earliest images taken with a vest pocket camera to his final photos using the then new SX-70 because his regular equipment had become too heavy to carry around. The book includes commentary from three of Evans's longtime friends, photographers John T. Hill and Jerry Thompson and professor emeritus (Yale University) Alan Trachtenberg. Their insight and first-hand experience give depth to their critical writings on Evans's work. In addition to offering a broad perspective on Evans's work, the book also clarifies the photographer's 'anti-art' philosophy. Eschewing aesthetic hyperbole, Evans wanted his pictures to resonate with a wide audience. At the same time, his natural curiosity made him one of the most inventive photographers of all time. What these photographs and writings attest to is a huge and timeless talent, which came not from a camera, but from Evans's uniquely hungry eye."

Labor anonymous by Walker Evans( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Walker Evans is one of the most important photographers of the 20th century and has influenced contemporary art beyond his medium until today. In 1938 the Museum of Modern Art in New York dedicated its first ever solo photography exhibition to Evans's work, and he has shaped America's image of itself particularly through his photographs of the Great Depression. The publication "Walker Evans: Labor Anonymous" is the first in-depth investigation into a series of the same name, which Evans published in Fortune magazine in 1946. On a Saturday afternoon in Detroit, Evans positioned himself with his Rolleiflex camera on the sidewalk and photographed pedestrians, mostly laborers, in his characteristically clear and unadorned way - an aesthetic he consciously described as the "documentary style". As in his earlier series, e.g. in the famous "Subway Portraits" from the New York underground, his subjects were often unaware they were being photographed, but some of the pedestrians also looked straight into the camera. Representing much more than a simple typology, this photographic series does not offer a fixed image of humankind or class."--Publisher's website

Natur der Menschen = Nature, man-made by Simone Nieweg( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in German and English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Simone Nieweg, geboren 1962 und Meisterschülerin von Bernd Becher an der Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie, photographiert seit ihren Anfängen Gärten und Landschaften an den Rändern von Siedlungen und Städten - unspektakuläre Motive, mit denen sie jedoch höchste ästhetische Wirkung erzielt. Ihr neues Buch, das zweite bei Schirmer/Mosel (Landschaften und Gartenstücke, 2002), versammelt nahezu alle Varianten kleinlandwirtschaftlichen Anbaus von Schrebergärten und privaten Gemüsebeeten bis hin zu Wiesen und Brachland, Waldrändern, Ackerflächen und Getreidefeldern. Nieweg photographiert ihre Sujets durchweg in Farbe und in einem sanften, fast schattenlosen Licht, das die Feinstruktur der Bilder durch nichts verunklärt. Darüber hinaus setzen ihre Langzeitbelichtungen absolute Windstille voraus, um Pflanzen und Landschaften in nie gesehener Schärfe und nie gesehenem Detailreichtum aufs Bild bannen zu können
