The sound of painting by Karin von Maur( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carefully selected images and quotations from composers and artists are blended into a study useful to scholars of art history and music, and fascinating to the general reader

Philip Guston : prints : catalogue raisonné by Philip Guston( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Philip Guston turned to the medium of lithography in the early sixties, he was regarded as one of the leading figures of Abstract Expressionism in the United States. At that time, his art was already showing signs of the change that would lead to the later representational works that dominated the last decade of his career. The impressive series of black-and-white lithographs that Guston made shortly before his death in 1980 incorporates, as a sort of visual autobiography, the complete repertoire of objects that marked his return to powerful pictorial representation: simple everyday items, clocks, shoes, books, cigarettes, ashtrays, and occasionally his beloved sandwiches and cherries. All of these things, taken from the world of the private and intimate, are given a unique vitality by Guston's ironic eye and deliberate hand in the soft cadences of the lithographic crayon. This superb-quality illustrated book is the first publication to present Guston's complete printed oeuvre. Fifty-nine exquisite reproductions showcase a printmaker who--along with Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning--was one of the leading American artists of the twentieth century"--Provided by publisher

Lindbergh, Winogrand : women by Garry Winogrand( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in German and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The catalogue presents more then 60 works of two world famous photographers. For the first time this catalogue leads along photographs by Peter Lindbergh and Garry Winogrand, who are setting apart with 'women' and 'street photography'. Next to works from the world famous series 'Women are Beautiful' by Winogrand, the catalogue presents partially unpublished works by Lindbergh, which he has shot on street during some fashion shootings. The same time the photographs perform a substantive discourse on truthfulness of street photography, centered around the major themes 'directing', 'authenticity' and 'reality'. A further highlight is the publication of a few and very rare color photographs by Winogrand he shot between 1958-1964.0Exhibition: Kulturzentrum NRW-Forum Düsseldorf, Germany (03.02.-30.04.2017)
Futurism by Sylvia Martin( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inspired by the development of Cubism, the Futurist movement was founded in 1909 by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, along with painters Giacomo Balla. Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carra, and Gino Severini. The school, which celebrated technology and the mechanical era, was comprised of painters, sculptors, designers, architects, and writers. Motion and machines were two main themes of this movement, which attacked the bastions of establishment and sparked controversy by its glorification of war and support of Fascism. Experimenting with movement, and speed, and abstract light and color, the Futurists developed approaches and techniques that were revolutionary at the time, and in retrospect one can see that the Futurists influenced other avant-garde art movements, most notably Russian Constructivism. Artists featured: Giacomo Balla, Umberto Boccioni, Anton Giulio Bragaglia, Carlo Carra, Tullio Crali, Fortunato Depero, Gerardo Dottori, Leonardo Dudreville, Virgilio Marchi, F.T. Marinetti, Enrico Prampolini, Luigi Russolo, Antonio Sant'Elia, Gino Severini. Mario Sironi, Ardengo Soffici."--

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner 1880-1938 : on the edge of the abyss of time by Norbert Wolf( Book )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1880--1938) is regarded as one of the key figures in 20th-century European art. A Modernist to his bones, he sent seismic waves through the art world with his hard-edged, intensely colored paintings and disseminated his ideas through Die Brücke art movement and the MUIM-Institut school of modernist painting, both of which he cofounded. Kirchner's work reconciled past and present through an Expressionist prism, reflecting the latest avant-garde ideas in art, while exploring traditional academic approaches and subjects. His works tackled social, moral, and emotional questions with a fierce intensity. Distorted perspectives, rough lines, and unusual colors were mainstays of his practice, as well as a recurring interest in capturing the human form, whether in frenetic city vistas such as Berlin Street Scene (1913) or in his famously decadent studio. In this introductory book, we explore the stretch of Kirchner's career through Germany and Switzerland, including his founding of Die Brücke, and his inclusion in the Nazis' infamous "degenerate art" exhibition in 1937. Along the way, we'll encounter vivid landscapes, stark nudes, intense urban settings, and, above all, a persistent emphasis on the emotional experience of painter and viewer." --Publisher

Lucio Fontana, 1899-1968 : a new fact in sculpture by Barbara Hess( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Italian artist Lucio Fontana literally tore the art establishment apart. Trained as a sculptor, he combined form and color in radical spatial gestures, most famously his slashed canvases of the 1950s and '60s. Regarded as the father of midcentury Spatialism, his provocative practice channeled postwar innovation in a pioneering synthesis of art, technology, and science."--Publisher's description
Spirits speak : a celebration of African masks by Peter Stepan( Book )

"Spirits Speak presents a selection of the most important African masks found in major museums and renowned private collections around the globe: an overview such as has never been compiled in this way before. Artistic mastery, charisma, age and authenticity were paramount selection criteria with only the very best examples representing each well-known mask type. An introductory essay elucidates the conceptual intricacies and varying functions of the masks and sweeps away deep-rooted misunderstandings. Enlightening commentaries offer background information about the function and origins of each mask's use within the ethnic groups from which they originate, and a foldout map places them in their original geographical context."--Jacket
