Red Grooms : the graphic work by Walter Knestrick( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Even a quick glance through the pages of Red Grooms: The Graphic Work makes one thing perfectly clear: Red Grooms is an original. And this comprehensive collection of his graphic work from 1956 to 1999 offers a dazzling display of Grooms's unique mastery of an array of printmaking techniques. From delicate, soft-ground etchings to an over six-foot tall woodblock print to spray-painted stencils, Red Grooms's artistry reflects his antic humor, imaginative vision, and often raucous view of an extensive range of subjects." "Walter Knestrick, a boyhood classmate of Grooms who has collected the artist's prints over the years, introduces the reader to Red Grooms and tells of his fifty-year friendship with the artist from their early artistic experiments in Nashville to their collaboration on this superb assembly of Red Grooms's graphic work."--Jacket

Janet Fish : paintings by Vincent Katz( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Artist Janet Fish is well known for her richly executed oil paintings and watercolors of glass, fruit, and flowers, through which she "captures the beauty of everyday objects." The true subject of her paintings, however, is the movement of light and color from one object to the other, and critics have continually praised her art, labeling it "beyond realism." The only previous monograph on her paintings, long out of print, is today a collector's item. Now, Abrams is proud to present this new and completely up-to-date survey of her work." "The introduction gives way to page after page of Janet Fish's beautiful and engaging paintings, filled with life and light, color and fascinating detail. In all, more than 100 works are reproduced in full color, including gorgeously outsize details and four gatefolds. An illustrated chronology as well as selected exhibition history and bibliography round out the book."--Jacket
Jim Dine, some drawings by Jim Dine( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book of 85 drawings by Jim Dine illustrates the range and mastery of the artist's draftsmanship over more than four decades. The variety and breadth of the selection shows the intense way Dine observes the world around him and the excitement with which he records it on paper. Dine has said that his ability to draw is both a privilege and the result of hard physical training, compelling him to move inexorably forward to capture the next idea or the next psychological insight in drawings that are extraordinarily human. The selection includes early tool pencil drawings and collages, as well as powerful portrait and figure studies in a variety of media. Also included are large painterly pastels executed with a bravura that places them somewhere between painting and drawing. Dine sees his paintings and drawings as essentially conceived and developed in the same way--requiring the same amount of time, emotion and physicality of medium. The only difference, in the end, is that the drawings are on paper

Alex Katz, this is now by Alex Katz( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the course of a seven-decade career, American artist Alex Katz (b. 1927) has conveyed his singular vision of the world through paintings that fuse realism and abstraction, allowing details to dissolve into bold swaths of color. Though perhaps best known for his portraits, Katz has consistently painted the natural world throughout his career, particularly over the past decade. This beautiful publication takes a fresh look at his landscape paintings through the themes of nature, perception, the passage of time, and contemporary notions of the sublime. These works reveal the American painter's virtuosic control of materials and the absolute clarity and power of his vision, made evident by stripping away unnecessary information to capture the essence of his subjects. Featuring works of art from the 1950s to today, this book is the most extensive look at Katz's treatment of landscape in nearly 20 years. The book includes essays by curator Michael Rooks and art critic Margaret Graham, and poems by John Godfrey and Vincent Katz, who is an art critic as well as the artist's son, providing a timely and important new assessment of the work of this renowned artist.

Maine sublime : Frederic Edwin Church's landscapes of Mount Desert and Mount Katahdin( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frederic Church, the acclaimed Hudson River School artist, first traveled to Maine in 1850. Over the next decades Church ventured repeatedly from his New York State home, Olana, to explore the Maine coast and its rocky islands. He also frequently trekked inland to visit Mount Katahdin. Maine provided sensational sunsets, robust waves crashing on rocky shores, and an abundance of wilderness well suited to Church's artistic vision. Maine Sublime brings together all of the artwork in the Olana collection resulting from and inspired by Church's travels, from finished oil sketches that Church selected to mount, frame, and display at his home to pencil sketches and cartoons that he stored in portfolios. The subjects include such specific locations as Sunset Bar Harbor (1854) and works like Sunset (ca. 1852-65) and Twilight a Sketch (1858), which were inspired by dramatic Maine skies and are evocative of the region as a whole. Throughout his life, Church would continue to visit Maine, sketching, fishing, and hiking. In 1878 he bought land on Lake Millinocket with a view of Katahdin and built a simple cabin. After Church's marriage in 1860, his wife Isabel often joined his excursions to Maine. In a witty cartoon included in this catalog, Frederic and Isabel Church on Mount Desert Island, Church captures his wife's admiration of the scenery."--Publisher's description

Charm by Sextus Propertius( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Propertius' great love was a woman he called Cynthia in his poems (although her real name may have been Hostia), and it is his first-person account of their tempestuous relationship that forms the first and second books of his poetry. Using a colloquial and, at times, jaunty everyday language, New York poet Vincent Katz captures the spirit of the original and breathes fresh air into Propertius' painfully obsessive lyrics

Pleasure palaces : the art & homes of Hunt Slonem by Vincent Katz( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Artist Hunt Slonem creates his magical paintings and sculptures of flora, fauna, saints, and other subjects with inspiration that he draws not only from his sense of spirituality, but also from his environment in a "self-created world" filled with myriad exotic forms, vivid colors, and mystical essences. While the public can imagine an artist at work or at home, rarely does an aficionado or a reader gain access to an artist's lair. That will change with the publication of Pleasure Palaces: The Art and Homes of Hunt Slonem, by Vincent Katz. Here, the reader is invited into not only the artist's studios (past and present) but also his homes in New York and Louisiana. From Slonem's first downtown studio in New York City "where it all began" in 1975 (shown on the book's cover) to his Victorian mansion on the Hudson River in Kingston, New York, as well as his two Louisiana plantations--one on the Bayou Teche in St. Mary Parish, about two hours' drive northwest of New Orleans, and the other in a remote location one hour north of Baton Rouge--the reader will get a unique perspective on how this Neo-Expressionist artist's environments are brought to life by his collections of antique neo-Gothic furniture, Blenko glass, and period frames, not to mention his astonishing collection of tropical birds, which are both his muses and his passion. Multi-talented poet/author/curator/documentarian/editor Vincent Katz, who has written about Slonem numerous times and has previously contributed poetry to Slonem's publications Hunt's Place and Exotica, has written an essay for Pleasure Palaces that not only provides a critical analysis of the artist's work, but also explores his spiritual life and how it influences his art and the extraordinary homes that are his havens. Katz's essay and an interview with the artist bookend lavishly illustrated color sections, with views of Slonem's estates (Albania Plantation, Lakeside Plantation, Cordt's Mansion) and New York City studios (including the private aviary in his West 10th Street studio) interspersed with his oil and watercolor paintings of flora and fauna. At the book's conclusion, an up-to-date chronology of Slonem's solo and group exhibitions (including forthcoming 2007 shows), a bibliography, a list of awards received, and a list of public collections that include his works complete this comprehensive document of Slonem's body of work."--Publisher's website
