Bonnard by Sarah Whitfield( Book )

37 editions published in 1998 in 3 languages and held by 1,063 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947) is among the most enigmatic of the great masters of twentieth-century painting. In this book, Sarah Whitfield and John Elderfield bring a new understanding to his deeply serious, complex paintings." "Published to accompany a major retrospective exhibition at the Tate Gallery, London, and at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Bonnard features two important essays based on much fresh research. Sarah Whitfield, curator of the exhibition, discusses the legacy of the Symbolism of Bonnard's early years and the way in which his acceptance of nature's surrender to time finds expression in the grand elegiac paintings of the later period. John Elderfield, curator of the exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, writes about Bonnard's awareness of the complexities of visual perception, and how crucial an understanding of this is to fully comprehending his stature as a painter."--Jacket
Fauvism by Sarah Whitfield( Book )

24 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume recounts the formation and dissolution of the Fauve art movement; the movement as such lasted only a few years, 1904-1908. Fauvism is the style of les Fauves (French for "the wild beasts"), a short-lived and loose group of early twentieth-century artists whose works emphasized painterly qualities and strong color over the representational or realistic values retained by Impressionism. The leaders of the movement were Henri Matisse and André Derain. The author also includes information on its relation to other movements of the time, such as post-Impressionism and Cubism and its place in the artistic development of each of its practitioner

Lucio Fontana by Sarah Whitfield( Book )

22 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lucio Fontana was one of the most influential and innovative figures of post-war Italian art. From his earliest ceramic sculptures produced in the 1930s to his famous punctured and slashed canvases of the 1950s and 60s, Fontana's raw, vigorous and often intensely beautiful works broke with convention and challenged existing ideas about the work of art and the role of the artist in an age of rapid technological development." "This fully-illustrated catalogue coincides with the Hayward Gallery's retrospective exhibition on the artist and offers the chance to discover one of the most radical artists of this century. It contains over 100 reproductions of Fontana's most significant sculptures and canvases, extracts of the artist's writings and interviews, a critical essay by Sarah Whitfield, as well as an illustrated chronology of the artist's life and career, an exhibition history and annotated bibliography."--BOOK JACKET

Lawrence Gowing : selected writings on art by Lawrence Gowing( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As one of the leading critical voices on art of the post-war years, Lawrence Gowing (1918-91) combined a passion for close visual involvement with formidable literary skills. Having begun his career as a painter, Gowing's monograph on Vermeer (1952) brought him early recognition as a writer who combined this experience with a meticulous historical perspective. His foremost commitment was to the pioneering painters of the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, notably Paul Cézanne and Henri Matisse. The exhibitions Gowing curated at Tate, London, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York famously helped to mould and reshape public perceptions. Characterised by a desire to instruct and encourage, his writing reflects a highly successful career as a curator and teacher. Introduced by the editor Sarah Whitfield, four decades of writing are brought together for the first time in this volume.--Publisher

Celebrated for exploring the space between abstraction and figuration, William Scott is best known for his painting of still-lifes, landscapes and the female nude. On the occasion of the centenary of his birth, Karsten Schubert will hold an exhibition of Scott's nude drawings from the 1950s. A magnificent series of nearly abstract drawings, this group represents a period of exploration and refiguring for Scott. They also exemplify the artist's interest in 'the modern magic of space, primitive sex forms, the sensual and erotic, disconcerting contours, the things of life.' In this catalogue, twelve drawings are accompanied by a text by Sarah Whitfield and an essay on drawing by Scott himself
