Most widely held works by Barnaby Wright
Gabriele Münter : the search for expression 1906-1917 by Gabriele Münter( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gabriele Munter (1877-1962) was one of the most important German Expressionist artists of the early twentieth century. Her radical and experimental approach to painting revitalised the genres of portraiture, landscape and still life. She achieved a distinct voice within the cross-currents of European modernism. Today, however, Munter's work is largely unknown outside Germany, her reputation eclipsed by male contemporaries such as her partner Wassily Kandinsky." "Gabriele Munter: The Search for Expression 1906-1917 focuses on the most intensively creative period of her career, when she took what she later described as 'a great leap' - away from Impressionism into a bold and brightly coloured Expressionism. Here more than fifty key works are reproduced, with essays by leading experts, Annegret Hoberg providing an outline introduction and Shulamith Behr discussing her role as 'more than a Muse' in German Expressionism."--Jacket
The London paintings by André Derain( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first publication dedicated to the extraordinary series of paintings of London that Andre Derain produced at the height of his avant-garde notoriety, having been newly branded a Fauve or 'wild beast' in Paris for his uncompromising use of pure colour. Building on his rising artistic fame, Derain's dealer Ambroise Vollard sent him to London in 1906 to produce works that would rival Claude Monet's recently exhibited views of the city. The result was a series of canvases that confronted the traditions of Impressionism and constructed a new artistic language to express an unprecedented vision of the capital, seen not as fog-shrouded and gloomy but bathed in piercingly bright sunshine and radiating wild colours." "New research and the recent discovery of Derain's two London sketchbooks has completely revised our understanding of these paintings. It allows us to appreciate fully the impact of the young artist's three visits to the city between 1906 and 1907, considering especially the importance of his studies in the ethnographic galleries of the British Museum and his encounters with the foreign customs of London itself. Andre Derain: The London Paintings presents this new work and reproduces all 29 canvases in full colour together with pages from the sketchbooks for the first time."--Jacket
Cezanne's card players by Paul Cézanne( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Cezanne's famous paintings of peasant card players and pipe smokers have long been considered to be among his most iconic and powerful works. They were described by one of Cezanne's early biographers as being "equal to the most beautiful works of art in the world". This is the first publication dedicated to Cezanne's Card Players and their exquisite preparatory drawings and oil studies. In these powerful works the artist conveys the gravitas and stocism of his peasant sitters, for whom he felt great admiration. As he told one visitor to his studio, "I love above all else the appearance of people who have grown old without breaking with old customs."
Renoir at the theatre : looking at La loge by Courtauld Institute Galleries( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents the story of Pierre-Auguste Renoir's painting dubbed La Loge (The Theatre Box), created in 1874. This work is one of the masterpieces of Impressionism. Its depiction of an elegant couple on display in a box at the theater epitomizes the Impressionists' interest in the spectacle of modern life. At the heart of the painting is the complex play of gazes enacted by these two figures. In turning away from the performance, Renoir focused instead upon the theater as a social stage where status and relationships were on public display. This book unites La Loge with Renoir's other treatments of the subject and with loge paintings by contemporaries, including Mary Cassatt and Edgar Degas. Concentrating on the early years of Impressionism during the 1870s, the book explores how these artists used the loge to capture the excitement and changing nature of fashionable Parisian society
Becoming Picasso : Paris 1901 by Courtauld Institute Galleries( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1901 was a momentous and turbulent year for the nineteen-year-old Picasso. His first visit to Paris, at the end of 1900, had fuelled his ambitions and led to the prospect of an exhibition with one of the city's most important modern art dealers, Ambroise Vollard. As he prepared work for the show he received news that his closest friend, Carles Casagemas, had committed suicide. The tragedy would have a profound impact upon his art as the year unfolded. Picasso left for Paris in May with around 20 paintings and little over a month to produce enough work to fill his Vollard exhibition. Once there, he painted unstintingly, sometimes finishing three canvases in a single day. This great outpouring of creative energy resulted in more than 60 paintings for the exhibition. The canvases express Picasso's desire to take on and reinvent the styles and motifs of his artist heroes, such as Van Gogh, Degas and Toulouse-Lautrec

Frank Auerbach : London building sites 1952-1962 by Frank Auerbach( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walter Sickert : the Camden Town nudes by Walter Sickert( Book )

13 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This catalogue accompanies the first exhibition devoted to the group of female nudes painted by Walter Sickert (1860-1942) in and around Camden Town between 1905 and 1912. The uncompromising realism of Sickert's nudes, set in the murky interiors of cheap lodging houses, broke artistic conventions and shocked critics. Today they are recognised as being among his most important contributions to the development of twentieth-century art." "This publication looks in detail at Sickert's reinvention of the nude as a subject of modern painting. It explores the ways in which he attempted to overturn outmoded traditions of the genre and pursue instead a stridently realist approach. These ambitions achieved their most profound expression in his so-called Camden Town Murder paintings which are brought together in this exhibition for the first time. Walter Sickert: The Camden Town Nudes offers an account of this important body of work by one of the most significant British artists of the twentieth century."--Jacket
Mondrian/Nicholson : in parallel by Piet Mondrian( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book accompanies an exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery, London, that will be the first to offer a comprehensive account of the parallel artistic paths charted by Mondrian and Nicholson during this remarkable decade.

Exhibition: Courtauld Gallery, London (02.-05.2012)
Soutine's portraits : cooks, waiters & bellboys by Chaim Soutine( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chaim Soutine (1893-1943) produced some of the most powerful and expressive portraits of modern times. His ability to capture in paint the character, humanity and emotion of his sitters is the hallmark of Soutine's greatest work. The major exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery, London, focuses upon one of his most important series of portraits; his paintings of cooks, waiters and bellboys who sat for him in Paris and the South of France during the 1920s. These works helped to establish Soutine's reputation as a major avant-garde painter, seen by many as the twentieth centuryheir to van Gogh. This will be the first time that this outstanding group of masterpieces has ever been brought together and it will be the first exhibition of Soutine's work in London for over thirty year. Exhibition: The Courtauld Gallery, London, United Kingdom (19.10.2017 - 21.01.2018)
Bridget Riley : learning from Seurat by Bridget Riley( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1959, Riley's copy of Seurat's The Bridge at Courbevoie (1886-87) offered the artist a new understanding of colour and tone, which led her to produce her first major works of pure abstraction during the early 1960s. This volume presents Riley's paintings with this key work by Seurat in the museum's collection. Brought together for the first time, it demonstrates a shared preoccupation with perception; at pivotal points throughout three decades of Riley's career. Alongside full-colour illustrations, it includes an introductory text by Karen Serres and Barnaby Wright, an interview with the artist by Éric de Chassey, as well as two essays written by Riley that offer her insights on Seurat's importance to her own practice. Exhibition: The Courtauld Gallery, London (17.09.2015-17.01.2016)
The Courtauld collection : a vision for impressionism by Courtauld Institute of Art( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Courtauld Collection: A Vision for Impressionism' accompanies a landmark exhibition at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris exploring Samuel Courtauld's role as one of the great collectors of the twentieth century. The catalogue and exhibition showcase Courtauld's extraordinary collection, which will be on display in Paris for the first time in over sixty years. One of the finest collections of Impressionism anywhere in the world was assembled by the English industrialist and philanthropist Samuel Courtauld (1876-1947). During the 1920s, Courtauld acquired seminal works by all of the major Impressionists, from Renoir's early masterpiece La Loge to Manet's last great work, A Bar at the Folies-Bergere. His collection grew to include such iconic works as Gauguin's great Tahitian nude Nevermore and one of Van Gogh's most famous paintings, Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear. Courtauld was particularly devoted to Cezanne and put together the largest collection of his work in the United Kingdom, including the epic Montagne Sainte-Victoire with Large Pine and one of the celebrated Card Players. After a decade of collecting, Courtauld gave the majority of these remarkable works to establish The Courtauld Institute of Art and Gallery in London

Soaring flight : Peter Lanyon's gliding paintings by Toby Treves( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accompanying a major exhibition at The Courtauld Gallery, this catalogue explores a remarkable and unprecedented series of paintings by Peter Lanyon (1918-1964), one of Britain's most important and original post-War artists. Lanyon sought to create a new vision of landscape painting for the modern era. He considered himself to be extending the landscape traditions of earlier artists, in particular Turner, whom he admired greatly. Lanyon strove to find a language of painting that expressed his direct experience of the landscape which might also probe questions about the nature of our existence within the world. During the 1950s, he produced radical, near-abstract paintings of the tough coastal landscape of his native West Cornwall. He was fuelled by a desire to experience that landscape as completely as possible. In the summer of 1956, Lanyon was walking across a high cliff top when he looked up, saw three gliders soaring overhead and realised that this was the experience he desired. He began gliding seriously in 1959 and went solo for the first time in 1960, clocking up many flying hours over the next few years. Freed from a land-bound perspective, Lanyon poured his new gliding experiences into his art, producing paintings that offer a thrilling sense of his encounters with the land, sea and air, collapsing the multiple perspectives of his flights into each new composition. The paintings are also profoundly shaped by Lanyon's new-found glider pilot's knowledge of the character of the air - its different movements, textures and forces, as well as the dangers and life-lines that it presents as one navigates through the thermals and up-draughts that are the invisible map essential for the glider's survival in the sky. Lanyon's gliding paintings stand as a unique achievement of twentieth century art, reinventing and furthering the tradition of landscape painting
Georgiana Houghton : spirit drawings by Georgiana Houghton( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Georgiana Houghton was a spiritualist medium who, in the 1860s and 1870s, produced a remarkable series of largely abstract watercolours. Detailed explanations on the back of the works declare that her hand was guided by various spirits, including several Renaissance artists and higher angelic beings. In 1871 Houghton rented a gallery in Old Bond Street and presented her 'spirit drawings' to a startled London audience. One critic pronounced it to be "the most astonishing exhibition in London at the present moment". The visual power of the works and their pioneering use of abstract forms make them remarkable products of Victorian culture and fascinating precursors to later concerns of modern art. However, they are almost completely unknown today. This publication, which accompanies an exhibition at The Courtauld Gallery, is the first devoted to Houghton's spirit drawings and brings them to light after 150 years in obscurity--Back cover
William Henry Hunt : country people by William Henry Hunt( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Henry Hunt’s finely crafted figure studies open a window on to a vanished world of poachers and gamekeepers, millers and maltsters, estate gardeners and labourers. This delightful book accompanies the first exhibition to investigate the depiction of rural figures by this most admired 19th-century British watercolourist. Taking its lead from William Henry Hunt’s watercolour The Head Gardener, c. 1825, that is part of The Courtauld Gallery’s permanent collection, this focused display is the first to investigate Hunt’s depiction of rural figures in his work of the 1820s and 1830s. Consisting of twenty drawings borrowed from collections across the United Kingdom, William Henry Hunt: Country People brings together watercolours depicting country people in their working or living environments, from farmer and gamekeeper to stonebreaker and gleaner. The representation of these country men, women and children, closely observed, raises questions about their status and way of life at a time of rapid agricultural and social change -- Publisher's website
Richard Serra : drawings for the Courtauld by Richard Serra( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Serra is one of the most important and revered artists working today. Rising to prominence on the New York art scene more than forty years ago, Serra (born 1939) is now celebrated internationally for his unprecedented monumental steel sculptures and for his radical approach to drawing. Richard Serra: Drawings for the Courtauld accompanies the first museum exhibition of Serra's most recent drawings, which mark an exciting new departure for the artist. The display will unveil 12 of Serra's new works, created especially for this installation at The Courtauld. Made using thick black pigment applied to both sides of a clear plastic sheet, these drawings, which he calls 'transparencies', are extraordinary objects that challenge preconceptions of what constitutes a drawing. For Serra, drawing has always been an essential way of exploring new creative impulses, materials and working methods. Exhibition: The Courtauld Gallery, London, UK (19.9.2013-12.1.2014)
Modern drawings : the Karshan gift by Courtauld Institute Galleries( Book )

4 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This stunning catalogue presents for the first time an outstanding group of modern drawings by European and American masters, assembled by the late Howard Karshan and his wife, Linda, who recently presented the works to The Courtauld. Accompanying their exhibition at The Courtauld Gallery, the catalogue features drawings by renowned artists including Paul Cezanne, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Willem de Kooning, Philip Guston, Sam Francis, Cy Twombly, Gerhard Richter and Georg Baselitz.0The Karshan gift is a significant addition to The Courtauld's collection. The works demonstrate Howard and Linda Karshan's sensibility for the expressive power and rich variety of drawing as an art form. The drawings are characterised by innovative mark-making and distinctive use of line. Examples range from radical watercolours by Cezanne and highly expressive finger drawings in ink by Louis Soutter, to abstract compositions made by Henri Michaux whilst experimenting with Mescalin to explore the subconscious, and on to works by Twombly that further broadened the possibilities of draughtsmanship. The 25 drawings of the Karshan gift will be shown at The Courtauld Gallery when it reopens in late 2021, following a major transformation project. This catalogue will include an interview with Linda Karshan, two essays and a fully illustrated catalogue with detailed entries on each work.00Exhibition: The Courtauld Gallery, London, UK (11.2021-01.2022).0
