Futurism by Centre Georges Pompidou( Book )

22 editions published in 2009 in English and French and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume traces the Futurist movement from its origins in Italy to the international creative forum. The Futurists's aim was to express the energetic, dynamic, and violent quality of contemporary life, especially as embodied in the motion and force of modern machinery. Futurism embodied the same reality that it tried to capture: a dynamism that reflected the changing structure of the visible world. This work is illustrated with some 130 works by luminaries such as Boccioni, Balla, Picasso, Braque, Leger, Sonia and Robert Delaunay, Duchamp, and Malevich, the book explores different modes of expression within shared themes -- the lighting of modern cities, dance, crowd movement, and the speed of new mechanical means of transport. It includes essays by the world's leading authorities on Futurism and the avant-garde
Hopper by Edward Hopper( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents a definitive Hopper monograph. Published for a massive retrospective at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, and the Grand Palais in Paris, it approaches Hopper's relatively small oeuvre in two sections. The first covers the artist's formative years from approximately 1900 to 1924, examining a selection of sketches, paintings, drawings, illustrations, prints and watercolors, which are considered alongside works by painters that influenced Hopper, such as Winslow Homer, Robert Henri, John Sloan, Edgar Degas and Walter Sickert. The second section considers the years from 1925 onwards, addressing his mature output through chronological but thematic groupings."--Jacket flap
David Hockney by Marco Livingstone( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and French and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A full career retrospective of one of the greatest and most popular living artists, lavishly illustrated with works from across the artist's six-decade career David Hockney has been delighting and challenging audiences for almost sixty years. Working in an extraordinarily wide range of media with equal measures of wit and intelligence, his art has examined, probed and questioned how the perceived world of movement, space and time can be captured in two dimensions. This lavishly illustrated publication reasserts Hockney as a serious thinker and a highly innovative artist constantly challenging the conventions of artistic expression, without losing the characteristic verve, humour and colour of the work. Hockney?s book describes more than 200 works including painting, drawings, photographs, watercolours, iPad drawings, and his most recent multi-screen works.

Edward Hopper and the blank canvas( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary examines American realist painter Edward Hopper's life, including testimonies from people who knew him, and by those inspired by his work, like German filmmaker Wim Wenders. From Mad Men to Blade Runner and The Simpsons, Hopper's scenes of modern American life, most notably Nighthawks, have been recreated in myriad films and TV shows, while his style has influenced the likes of Alfred Hitchcock and Terrence Malick. Obsessed with the everyday, Hopper depicted all-night diners, cinemas, gas stations, hotel lobbies, and a theater, filling them with seemingly isolated and alienated figures because he believed loneliness was an inherent feature of city life. This documentary reveals the social and cultural context surrounding Hopper's work, while also exploring his independence as a painter, the many references to his work in film, and the widespread reproduction of his works

Magritte : the treachery of images by René Magritte( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this beautiful monograph, a collection of revelatory essays focuses on five common images in René Magritte's work-fire, shadows, curtains, words, and the fragmented body. Featuring vibrant reproductions of more than 100 works, this book helps readers understand how the artist employed these images in ways both deceptive and realistic. The book explores how he distorted accepted interpretations of classic symbols; why he so often used words as elements of his paintings; and how he applied aspects of the theater in his works. As Magritte's paintings have become subsumed by the very commercialism they sought to ridicule, this volume takes a fresh look at an artist whose familiarity masks an incredible gift for deception and rapier-like intellect"--

Dictionnaire de l'objet surréaliste by Didier Ottinger( Book )

14 editions published in 2013 in French and Italian and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce dictionnaire-catalogue qui accompagne l'exposition "Le surréalisme et l'objet", présentée au Centre Pompidou à Paris du 30 octobre 2013 au 3 mars 2014, retrace les étapes d'un questionnement, d'une création, qui provoque l'avènement de l'objet, fait proliférer la figure du mannequin et conduit à la mise en scène des expositions.00Comment concilier l'appel au rêve et le souci du réel, la psychanalyse et le matérialisme dialectique? La question se pose au surréalisme à la fin des années vingt, lorsque le mouvement, fondé par André Breton, se met "au service de la révolution". Cette allégeance suppose une remise en cause du rôle social de l'artiste, de la fétichisation marchande de ses oeuvres, à quoi répond l'invention de l'objet surréaliste

Walker Evans by Walker Evans( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walker Evans was one of the most important American photographers of the 20th century. His focus on everyday life in America, in both urban and rural settings, makes him also one of the most relatable. This retrospective volume traces Evans' career through more than 300 images-from his first photographs of the late 1920s to his Polaroids of the 1970s. Organized thematically, the book examines topics such as Evans' relationship with the impresario Lincoln Kirstein, his work in postcards and magazines, and his lifelong exploration of the American vernacular. In addition, this volume features items from the photographer's own collection, including personal writings, signage, postcards, and other ephemera. Through these ancillary objects and a thorough overview of Evans' career, readers will come away with a better understanding of a photographer whose iconic photographs remain timeless
Magritte : la trahison des images by René Magritte( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in French and English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"L'exposition "Magritte. La trahison des images" propose une approche à ce jour inédite de l'œuvre de l'artiste belge René Magritte. Rassemblant les œuvres emblématiques, comme d'autres peu connues de l'artiste, provenant des plus importantes collections publiques et privées, l'exposition offre une lecture renouvelée de l'une des figures magistrales de l'art moderne. Une centaine de tableaux, de dessins, et des documents d'archives, sont réunis pour offrir au public cette approche qui s'inscrit dans la ligne des monographies que le Centre Pompidou a consacré aux figures majeures de l'art du 20e siècle : " Edward Munch. L'œil moderne ", " Matisse. Paires et séries " et " Marcel Duchamp. La peinture, même ". L'exposition Magritte. La trahison des images explore un intérêt du peintre pour la philosophie, qui culmine, en 1973, avec Ceci n'est pas une pipe que publie Michel Foucault, fruit de ses échanges avec l'artiste."

Dreamlands : des parcs d'attractions aux cités du futur by Quentin Bajac( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in French and English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catalogue publié à l'occasion de l'exposition présentée au Centre Pompidou à Paris du 5 mai au 9 août 2010. L'exposition Dreamlands développe un propos inédit : montrer comment les modèles de foires internationales, d'expositions universelles et de parcs de loisirs ont influencé la conception de la ville et de ses usages. Démultipliant la réalité par la pratique de la copie, jouant d'une esthétique de l'accumulation et du collage souvent proche du kitsch, ces mondes clos et parallèles ont en effet inspiré les démarches artistiques, architecturales et urbanistiques au XXe siècle, au point de s'ériger en possible norme de certaines constructions contemporaines. La catalogue de l'exposition pluridisciplinaire rassemble des oeuvres, mêlant art moderne et contemporain, architecture, films et documents issus de nombreuses collections publiques et privées

Picasso-mania : [exposition], Paris, Grand Palais, Galeries nationales, 7 octobre 2015-29 février 2016 by Pablo Picasso( Book )

13 editions published in 2015 in French and English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Picasso et l'art contemporain? Picasso contemporain? Le passage du temps apporte à ces questions des réponses nouvelles. Pour nombre d'observateurs des années 1960 aux années 1980, l'art de Marcel Duchamp contribue à reléguer celui de Picasso aux marges de l'histoire. Alors que les médias de masse, de Paris Match à L'Humanité, font de Picasso un héros populaire, les revues spécialisées s'intéressent quant à elles à son oeuvre, mais seulement pour débattre du moment de son obsolescence. Le centième anniversaire de la naissance du peintre, en 1981, marque un retournement auquel succède une forme de " Picasso mania" au début des années 1980. Armé d'un appareil Polaroïd, David Hockney entreprend une relecture du cubisme. Pinceau en main Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Antonio Saura, Malcolm Morley ... s'emparent de Picasso, dont on redécouvre les peintures tardives. Avec plus de trois cents oeuvres, incluant films (Kusturica, Godard..), vidéo (Rineke Dijkstra), photographies (Agbodjelou, Hockney ...), peintures et sculptures, l'exposition " Picasso.mania " démontre que l'héritage plastique et poétique de Pablo Picasso est assurément toujours vivant."--Page 4 of cover
