Duchamp by Marcel Duchamp( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents a survey of French artist Marcel Duchamp's (1887-1968) career documents; it includes more than 60 reproductions of his work and informative text discussing his preeminent role in the history of twentieth-century art. One of the most controversial and enigmatic artists of the twentieth century, Duchamp fundamentally altered our way of looking at and understanding art. Associated in his early years with several avant-garde groups, notably the Cubists and Surrealists, Duchamp became most famous as the archetypal artist of the radical Dada movement. Duchamp's art illustrates his conviction that painting, as it had been previously understood, was mere representation; it was Duchamp's goal to turn painting into a purely intellectual tool, to make art that was, in his words, "aesthetically anaesthetized." Duchamp's attempts to transform people's ideas about art were not readily accepted, and often created huge scandals. At the exhibition of the New York Independents in 1917, he presented his now famous overturned urinal, which he signed and titled Fountain. Indifferent to ideas of "good" or "bad" taste, Duchamp continued to make his artworks (called "Readymades") from innocuous objects which he "assisted" and "adjusted" in order to activate hidden meanings
Modigliani by Amedeo Modigliani( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of Italian painter and sculptor Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) has never been more popular than it is today. The sensuous nudes and intense, mannered portraits that are his trademark have become favorites of collectors and museum-goers alike. Modigliani worked on the fringes of the Parisian avant-garde in the 1910s, maintaining an affinity for the artistic traditions of his native Italy as well as for the art of ancient Egypt and African civilizations. Modigliani's impassioned productivity was cut short by his untimely death, but this volume captures the intensity of his drawings, sculptures, and paintings in rich full-color illustrations
Brancusi by Constantin Brancusi( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four decades after his death, Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957) remains perhaps the most revered of 20th-century sculptors. In his mature work, Brancusi defined a modern sensibility: he created drastically simplified shapes, stripped of realistic detail. Although considered a pioneer of abstract art, Brancusi himself claimed, "I never seek to make what they call a pure or abstract form". Brancusi documents the life and work of this remarkably original and important modern artist with reproductions of his best-known works, a well-researched biographical outline, and a selection of the artist's own illuminating photographs of his work and studio

Rouault by Georges Rouault( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An introduction to the artist and his work. "Although trained in the French fine-arts academy, throughout his long career he never painted like anyone else. A deeply religious man, he saw his work as a means of exploring spiritual and human truths, and his raw, searing pictures of prostitutes, clowns, judges, criminals and the working poor shocked the critics of his time. But, like his paintings on Christian themes, they also convey an uplifting message of hope and redemption through suffering."--Amazon
Botero by Fernando Botero( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Best known for his voluptuous, other-worldly figures, Botero sees distortion of forms as the essence of art, and he often reworks familiar images by artists such as Leonardo, Cezanne, Valezquez and Manet in his own distinctive style. One section of the book is devoted entirely to these "paraphrases", while other chapters focus on self-portraits, nudes, still-lifes, figures and characters, and life in Colombia.--From publisher description
