The San Francisco school of abstract expressionism by Susan Landauer( Book )

12 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elmer Bischoff : the ethics of paint by Susan Landauer( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elmer Bischoff (1916-1991) is generally regarded as one of the leaders among the artists in the San Francisco Bay Area who, after contributing to the local emergence of Abstract Expressionism during the 1940s and 50s, shifted the terms of their spectacularly sensual brushwork to recognizable imagery. Bill Berkson writes that if "David Park was the classicist of the founding triad of the Bay Area Figurative painters, and Richard Diebenkorn the modernist, Bischoff was the romantic." Designed to accompany a major retrospective of Bischoff's work, this volume is illustrated with duotones and color plates that faithfully capture the subtle variations in shade that characterize the painter's oeuvre. Berkson and Susan Landauer, both of whom knew Bischoff, provide the definitive view of the life, art, and teaching career of this important artist."--Jacket

The not-so-still life : a century of California painting and sculpture by Susan Landauer( Book )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In illustrated essays, as entertaining as they are informative, The Not-So-Still Life traces the great variety of media and forms these artists have engaged as they have moved the still life not just off the table, but off the wall and into three dimensions. Susan Landauer, William H. Gerdts, and Patricia Trenton investigate a range of forces and influences - whether historical, sociological, economic, psychological, or biographical - that have played into this evolution, from the plein-air Impressionism of the early twentieth century to the Synchromist bouquets of Stanton Macdonald-Wright, the revolving table settings of Charles Ray, and the electronic sculptures of Alan Rath. In doing so they deepen our understanding of American art over the last century." "Presenting, interpreting, and celebrating the world-renowned and the lesser-known California artists who have uniquely defined and redefined the still life, this volume offers an exploration of the sensual pleasures, the aesthetic challenges, and the intellectual and perceptual associations of a century of art through the prism of a single genre."--Jacket

Art of engagement : visual politics in California and beyond by Peter Selz( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Art of Engagement takes the first comprehensive look at the key role of California's art and artists in politics and culture since 1945. Tracing the remarkably fertile confluence of political agitation and passionately engaged art, Peter Selz leads readers on a journey that begins with the Nazi death camps and moves through the Bay Area's Free Speech Movement of 1964, the birth of Beat and hippie countercultures, the Chicano labor movement in the San Joaquin Valley, the beginning of the Black Panther Party in Oakland, and some of the most radical manifestations of the women's movement, gay lib
Obata's Yosemite : the art and letters of Chiura Obata from his trip to the High Sierra in 1927 by Chiura Obata( Book )

Hassel Smith : paintings 1937-1997( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book on the Abstract Expressionist painter Hassel Smith illustrates all periods of the artist's many-faceted career. Considered by critics as a "West Coast underground legend," Hassel Smith was an influential member of the experimental school of artists that emerged from post-World War II California. Together with Clyfford Still, Mark Rothko, and Richard Diebenkorn, Smith made his name at the California School of Fine Arts (now the San Francisco Art Institute) and from 1950 until the mid-1960s with successful exhibitions in Europe and on both coasts of the US. While his breakthrough paintings are characterized by their wildly vibrant brushstrokes and explosions of color, Smith was equally adept in a more restrained style, producing in later years the magisterial sequence of "measured" abstractions. As an initial burst of fame subsided, Smith continued to paint with unwavering energy. The result is a robust and dynamic body of work that reflects Smith's persistent curiosity and the breadth of his inquiry into the possibilities of painting. Long awaited by followers of the innovative art of the American Far West, this volume presents a full appreciation of Smith's achievement"--Publisher's description

Grillo : abstract expressionism : the formative years 1946-1948 by John Grillo( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1946 to 1947, Grillo played a seminal role in the San Francisco branch of a movement that would revolutionize American art. Today, Grillo is acknowledged as perhaps the first and the purest "Action Painter" on the west coast, and one of the most influential painters of San Francisco's school of abstract expressionism. What is not know is that Grillo's efforts paralleled and in some cases anticipated developments in the East [coast of the United States]. -- Publishers' description
