American epics : Thomas Hart Benton and Hollywood by Austen Barron Bailly( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This generously illustrated book explores the connections between Thomas Hart Benton's art and Hollywood movies from groundbreaking perspectives. Thomas Hart Benton was a thoroughly American artist. His regionally focused paintings and murals depicted everyday American life as well as the country's history. This volume focuses on one of the most American of Benton's associations: Hollywood. Not only did Benton create commissioned murals and portraits of film stars and movies, but he also developed a style that was highly theatrical and narrative. This volume is the first to collect all the works conceived by Benton for the film industry. It includes related ephemera, photographs, and documents of Benton at work, along with a series of thought-provoking essays that explore a diverse array of topics--from Benton's engagement with American identity from the 1920s to the 1960s, to parallels between Benton's use of Old Master methods and film production techniques. Fans of Thomas Hart Benton will find surprising insights into his career, while those fascinated by Hollywood history will discover how one of America's most revered artists shaped and was in turn influenced by the film industry

Archibald Motley : jazz age modernist by Archibald John Motley( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Featuring more than 140 colour illustrations, this catalogue accompanies the first full-scale survey in 20 years of the work of Archibald John Motley, Jr. (1891-1981), a master colourist and radical interpreter of urban culture. Motley's brilliant yet idiosyncratic paintings - simultaneously expressionist and social realist - have captured worldwide attention with their rainbow-hued, syncopated compositions. The catalogue includes the artist's depictions of African American life in early-twentieth-century Chicago, as well as his portraits and archetypes, portrayals of African American life in Jazz Age Paris, and renderings of 1950s Mexico--
Procession : the art of Norman Lewis by Norman Lewis( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Procession: The Art of Norman Lewis (1909-1979), is the first comprehensive museum overview of this influential artist, who explored multiple styles and whose extraordinary work spanned several decades of the 20th century. Norman Lewis was a pivotal figure in American art, a participant in the Harlem art community, an innovative contributor to Abstract Expressionism, and a politically-conscious activist. Bringing together works from major international public and private collections, the exhibition is organized with the full support of Lewis' family. It includes approximately 90 paintings and works on paper dating from the early 1930s through the late 1970s, as well as archival materials from the artist's estate. The exhibition highlights the diverse visual apparatus Lewis explored in parallel groups of works over the course of his career.The "procession" in the exhibition's title evokes Lewis' intriguing painterly process and highlights a prominent thread that runs through his oeuvre: the procession ritual. Processions were both celebratory and terrifying for Lewis, equally carrying allusions to carnevale and Ku Klux Klan marches. Such duality was at the heart of his artistic practice, which consistently employed modes of representation and abstraction; geometric and organic form; and emotional content ranging from joy to rage.Procession considers the complexity of Lewis' art in its entirety: It examines the role of figuration within Abstract Expressionism, considers how Lewis integrated social issues with abstraction, and highlights the surprising and expressive palette the artist championed throughout his career. -- Text from PAFA's website (see link)
Navigating the West : George Caleb Bingham and the river by Nenette Luarca-Shoaf( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Caleb Bingham (1811-1879) moved to Missouri as a child and began painting the scenes of Missouri life, for which he is now famous, in the 1840s. This book explores how Bingham's iconic river paintings reveal the cultural and economic significance of the massive Mississippi and Missouri waterways to mid-19th-century society. Focusing on the artist's working methods and preparatory drawings, the book also explores Bingham's representations of people and places and situates these images in a dialogue with other contemporary depictions of the region. Of particular note are two landmark essays investigating Bingham's creative process through comparisons of infrared images of 17 of his paintings with both his preparatory drawings and the completed works, casting new light on his previously understudied process. Technical analysis of the artist's lauded masterpiece, Fur Traders Descending the Missouri, reveals Bingham's considerable revisions to the painting. In the concluding essay, the 20th-century revival of the artist's work is discussed within the context of American Regionalism and in light of a shifting sequence of narratives about the nation's past and future.

Hotel Texas : an art exhibition for the President and Mrs. John F. Kennedy by Olivier Meslay( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The events associated with John F. Kennedy's death are etched into our nation's memory. This fascinating book tells a less familiar part of the story, about a special art exhibition organized by a group of Fort Worth citizens. On November 21, 1963, the Kennedys arrived in Fort Worth around midnight, making their way to Suite 850 of the Hotel Texas. There, installed in their honor, was an intimate exhibition that included works by Monet, Van Gogh, Marin, Eakins, Feininger, and Picasso. Due to the late hour, it was not until the following morning that the couple viewed the exhibition and phoned one of the principal organizers, Ruth Carter Johnson, to offer thanks. Mrs. Kennedy indicated that she wished she could stay longer to admire the beautiful works. The couple was due to depart for Dallas, and the rest is history.This volume reunites the works in this exhibition for the first time and features some previously unpublished images of the hotel room. Essays examine this exhibition from several angles: anecdotal, analytical, cultural, and historical, and include discussions of what the local citizens wished to convey to their distinguished viewers"

A new American sculpture, 1914-1945 : Lachaise, Laurent, Nadelman, and Zorach( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first publication to situate the individual contributions of Gaston Lachaise, Robert Laurent, Elie Nadelman, and William Zorach into a compelling constellation of artists with shared aesthetic and social concerns. Although each European-born, American artist cultivated his own distinct style, their creative priorities were all deeply rooted in quiet composition, synthetic approaches to anatomy, and architectural unity of curves and volume. At a time when abstract forms were popular, Lachaise, Laurent, Nadelman, and Zorach were all ultimately in favor of maintaining the integrity of the human body to explore modernist styles. This handsome book underscores their unrelenting search for a novel American visual tradition at the intersection of modernism, historic visual culture, and contemporary popular imagery.

Border cantos by Richard Misrach( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[Richard Misrach] saw the border, [Guillermo Galindo] heard it, and by coming together across that line of artistic practice, they've now created these 'border cantos.' Misrach has been using the canto literary structure, borrowed from Dante and Ezra Pound, as a way of organizing his long-term photographic project, Desert cantos (1979 to present). But here the canto also moves off the page and into sound, opening up into Galindo's practice. In Italian, canto means 'song'; in Spanish, 'singing' and 'chant.' In this sense, all cantos are part eye and part ear, able to bee seen and heard at once."--Page 10
The Polaroid project : at the intersection of art and technology by William A Ewing( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Polaroid instant photography revolutionized the taking and making of pictures, and the story of its beginnings is a simple one. In 1943, after being asked by his daughter why she couldn't immediately see the photograph he had just taken, American inventor and scientist Edwin H. Land conceived of the technology required to make this seemingly impossible demand a reality--within an hour. Land's creation was a groundbreaking scientific accomplishment that also heralded an exciting new chapter of artistic expression. Through the efforts of thousands of photographers the world over, as well as the corporation's own artist support program, which provided many with materials, Polaroid would help shape the artistic landscape of the late twentieth century. Published to accompany a major traveling exhibition, The Polaroid Project is a creative exploration of the relationship between Polaroid's many technological innovations and the art that was created with their help. Richly designed with over 300 illustrations, this beautiful volume showcases not only the myriad and often idiosyncratic approaches taken by such photographers as Ansel Adams, Robert Mapplethorpe, Ellen Carey, and Chuck Close, but also a fascinating selection of the technical objects and artfacts that speak of the sheer ingenuity that lay behind the art. With essays by the exhibition's curators and leading photographic writers and historians, The Polaroid Project provides a unique perspective on the Polaroid phenomenon--a technology, an art form, a convergence of both--and its enduring cultural legacy"--Provided by publisher
