James Turrell : a retrospective by Michael Govan( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published in conjunction with a major retrospective, this comprehensive volume illuminates the origins and motivations of James Turrell's incredibly diverse and exciting body of work--from his Mendota studio days to his monumental work-in-progress Roden Crater. Whether he's projecting shapes on a flat wall or into the corner of a gallery space, James Turrell is perpetually asking us to "go inside and greet the light"--Evoking his Quaker upbringing. In fact, all of Turrell's work has been influenced by his life experiences with aviation, science, and psychology, and as a key player in Los Angeles's exploding art scene of the 1960s. Enhanced by thoughtful essays and an illuminating interview with the artist, this monograph explores every aspect of Turrell's career to date--from his early geometric light projections, prints, and drawings, through his installations exploring sensory deprivation and seemingly unmodulated fields of colored light, to recent two-dimensional experiments with holograms. It also features an in-depth look at Roden Crater, a site-specific intervention into the landscape near Flagstaff, Arizona, which will be presented through models, plans, photographs, and drawings. Fans of this highly influential artist will find much to savor in this wide-ranging and beautiful book, featuring specially commissioned new photography by Florian Holzherr"--
Monet & Japan by Claude Monet( Book )

18 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Japanese art accompanied Monet throughout his life as an artist. Without it he would not be the 'Monet" we know. It affected not only his style and subject matter, but also the way he saw nature and how he conceived his relationship to nature. Some of Monet's greatest paintings are discussed, as are the Japanese prints and paintings that were his inspiration."--Jacket

Jackson Pollock's Blue poles by Anthony R White( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The abstract paintings of the American artist Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) are among the highest achievements of 20th century art. One of Pollock's masterpieces, "Blue Poles," is an American painting which has become an Australian icon. A key part of the art history of Australia, its controversial purchase in 1973 by the National Gallery of Australia was a sign for some of Australia's economic and cultural dependence on the United States. For others it was a sign that Australia was entering a new world in which traditional ties could be broken, and cultural and economic allegiances were open to negotiation. This catalogue brings together a selection of Pollock's works that help to situate "Blue Poles" in the broader development of the artist's career. Ranging in date from 1933 to 1952 and covering painting, drawing, and printmaking, the works show the diversity of Pollock's interests, which included Mexican mural painting, French Surrealism, and Native American art. The essays look at "Blue Poles" from three different perspectives. The introduction examines the artist's life and work leading up to 1952, followed by a discussion of "Blue Poles" and its place in Pollock's oeuvre. Another essay discusses the first exhibition of the painting in new York in 1952 and identifies an important shift that was taking place in the artist's work. The last essay takes a personal look at the reception of "Blue Poles" in the United States and Australia from 1970s to the present
