Fernand Léger by Fernand Léger ( Book )
8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Fernand Leger is the only major modern artist to choose modernity itself as his subject. From his early series "Contrastes de formes," of 1913-14 - the first fully abstract works to emerge from Cubism - through his paintings of construction workers from the late 1940s and early 1950s, his enduring subject was the pulse and dynamism of everyday life. Leger saw the twentieth-century environment as "a state of contrasts," a condition that he translated into art through forceful juxtapositions of shape, color, and line. His attempt to reconcile the formal concerns of artmaking with issues of social responsibility continues to be relevant to the art world of today." "This book is published to accompany a retrospective exhibition appearing at The Museum of Modern Art in the winter and spring of 1998 - New York's first in-depth survey of Leger's work in over forty years. The essays include Carolyn Lanchner's account of Leger's experience of and interest in America (he visited the United States several times, and lived there during World War II), and also of America's interest in him. Jodi Hauptman explores refractions of Leger's interests in the work of more recent artists, and Matthew Affron discusses Leger's ambition to make an art reflecting the "new visual state" of modern life. The plate section reproduces over eighty of Leger's paintings and drawings, and is accompanied by a series of short essays tracing formal and thematic developments in his art."--BOOK JACKET
Inventing Abstraction, 1910-1925 : how a radical idea changed modern art by Leah Dickerman ( Book )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 670 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
Fascist visions : art and ideology in France and Italy ( Book )
10 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bringing together studies by art historians, historians, and political scientists, Fascist Visions explores the themes and paradigms that pervaded protofascist and fascist aesthetic discourse, cultural policy, and artistic production in France and Italy. Whether traditionalist or innovative in idiom, art expressed fascism's ideological polarities: nihilism and idealism, modernism and antimodernism, revolution and reaction. This volume charts the unfolding of fascist aesthetics from its genesis in nationalist and antimaterialist ideologies before World War I to its full development during the interwar period and World War II. It also highlights the shared motivations of advocates of fascist aesthetics, including artists, art critics, political activists, and government officials, outside of Germany

Joseph Cornell et les surréalistes à New York by Joseph Cornell ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Le présent ouvrage accompagne l'exposition "Joseph Cornell et les surréalistes à New York" présentée au musée des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, du 18 octobre 2013 au 10 février 2014. Bien que reconnu comme un des acteurs majeurs de l'art américain de la première moitié du XXe siècle, Joseph Cornell a souvent été présenté comme un satellite dans les recherches artistiques de son temps et notamment dans la constellation surréaliste. Depuis l'exposition itinérante organisée par le Museum of Modern Art de New York présentée en 1981 au musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, aucune exposition monographique ne lui a été consacrée en France par un musée alors que plusieurs galeries à Paris se sont intéressées à lui : galerie 1900-2000 ; Baudouin Lebon ; Karsten Greve ; Virginia Zabriskie
