Dada : Zurich, Berlin, Hannover, Cologne, New York, Paris by Leah Dickerman( Book )
17 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Dada includes many of the key figures in the history of modernism, such as Hans Arp, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Hannah Hoch, John Heartfield, Francis Picabla, Kurt Schwitters, and Sophie Taeuber, and introduces artists who are less well known. This book explores the variety of art-making practices that emerged between 1916 and 1924 in the movement's primary centers: Zurich, Berlin, Hannover, Cologne, New York, and Paris. Six city essays by scholars of the movement; an illustrated chronology; more than forty artists' biographies; period photographs; and extensive plate sections document a provocative and influential artistic era." "This illustrated book accompanies Dada, the most comprehensive museum exhibition of Dada art ever mounted in the United States, on view in 2006 at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and The Museum of Modern Art, New York. The exhibition was on view at the Musee national d'art moderne-Centre Pompidou in Paris in 2005."--BOOK JACKET
Inventing Abstraction, 1910-1925 : how a radical idea changed modern art by Leah Dickerman( Book )
19 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1912, in several European cities, a handful of artists--Vasily Kandinsky, Frantisek Kupka, Francis Picabia and Robert Delaunay--presented the first abstract pictures to the public. Inventing Abstraction, published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, celebrates the centennial of this bold new type of artwork. It traces the development of abstraction as it moved through a network of modern artists, from Marsden Hartley and Marcel Duchamp to Piet Mondrian and Kazimir Malevich, sweeping across nations and across media. This richly illustrated publication covers a wide range of artistic production--including paintings, drawings, books, sculptures, film, photography, sound poetry, atonal music and non-narrative dance--to draw a cross-media portrait of these watershed years. An introductory essay by Leah Dickerman, Curator in the Museum's Department of Painting and Sculpture, is followed by focused studies of key groups of works, events and critical issues in abstraction's early history by renowned scholars from a variety of fields
Bauhaus 1919-1933 : workshops for modernity by Barry Bergdoll( Book )
11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Bauhaus, the school of art and design founded in Germany in 1919 and shut down by the Nazis in 1933, brought together artists, architects and designers - among them Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Marcel Breuer, Lyonel Feininger, Walter Gropius, Johannes Itten, Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Lilly Reich, Oskar Schlemmer, Gunta Stolzl - in an extraordinary conversation on the nature of art in the industrial age. Aiming to rethink the form of modern life, the Bauhaus became the site of a dazzling array of experiments in the visual arts that have profoundly shaped the world today. Bauhaus 1919-1933: Workshops for Modernity, published to accompany a major multimedia exhibition, is The Museum of Modern Art's first comprehensive treatment of the subject since its famous Bauhaus exhibition of 1938, and offers a new generational perspective on the twentieth century's most influential experiment in artistic education." "Organized in collaboration with the three major Bauhaus collections in Germany (the Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin, the Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau and the Klassic Stiftung Weimar), Bauhaus 1919-1933 examines the extraordinarily broad spectrum of the school's products, including industrial design, furniture, architecture, graphics, photography, textiles, ceramics, theater and costume design, painting and sculpture. Many of the objects discussed and illustrated here have rarely if ever been seen or published outside Germany. Featuring approximately 400 color plates, richly complemented by documentary images, Bauhaus 1919-1933 includes two overarching essays by the exhibition's curators, Barry Bergdoll and Leah Dickerman, that present new perspectives on the Bauhaus. Shorter essays by more than 20 leading scholars apply contemporary viewpoints to 30 key Bauhaus objects, and an illustrated narrative chronology provides a dynamic glimpse of the Bauhaus' lived history."--BOOK JACKET
Aleksandr Rodchenko by Magdalena Dabrowski( Book )
15 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is published to accompany the first major American retrospective of Rodchenko's work, at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in the summer of 1998. The essays in Aleksandr Rodchenko explore both phases of his career, drawing out the formal ideas that he developed as well as the social and artistic context in which he moved. The book's plate section, reproducing over 300 works carefully selected from collections in Russia and throughout the West, for the first time presents a full and coherent overview of his diverse achievement. An illustrated chronology outlines the story of the artist's life."--Jacket

Building the collective : Soviet graphic design, 1917-1937 : selections from the Merrill C. Berman collection ( Book )
7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Covering the first decades of the Soviet Union, from the Civil War to the end of Stalin's Second Five-Year Plan in the 1930s, the graphic works in Building the Collective provide a remarkable overview of design during one of this century's most politically turbulent and artistically active periods. These designs, from the collection of Merrill C. Berman, challenge assumptions of a monolithic Soviet poster style, conveying the impressive range of graphic design as it responded to a rapidly evolving political situation
Rauschenberg : Canyon by Leah Dickerman( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and Polish and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"N the mid-1950s Robert Rauschenberg began making what he called "Combines"--Radically experimental works that mix paint and other art materials with things found in daily life. These hybrid creations offered a dramatic counterpoint to the gestural abstraction that prevailed in contemporary American painting. Canyon (1959), one of the artist's best-known Combines, is a large canvas bearing paint, a postcard, a man's shirt, photographs, newspaper clippings, wood, a flattened metal can and paint tube, a piece of glass, and, thrusting out from its surface, a stuffed bald eagle. Leah Dickerman's essay examines the genesis of this startling and enigmatic work and positions it within a key period in Rauschenberg's groundbreaking career."--Publisher's description
