James Rosenquist : a retrospective by James Rosenquist( Book )

16 editions published in 2003 in English and French and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2003, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum mounted a major retrospective of James Rosenquist's works, which traveled to the Menil Collection, Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. Since the late 1950s, James Rosenquist has been creating an exceptional and consistently intriguing body of work. In the 1960s, following his early days as a billboard painter in the Midwest and New York City, he gained fame as one of the leaders of the American Pop art movement. Along with contemporaries Jim Dine, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, and Andy Warhol, Rosenquist drew on the iconography of advertising and mass media to conjure a sense of modern life. Rosenquist's paintings directly allude to the cultural and political tenor of the times in which they were created. From his renowned Pop canvases to his billboard-sized works and continuing with his recent use of abstract painting techniques, James Rosenquist: A Retrospective presents the artist's enduring interest in and mastery of texture, color, line, and shape that continues to dazzle audiences and influence younger generations of artists. The book features nearly 300 of the artist's most significant works--

Richard Diebenkorn by Richard Diebenkorn( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Diebenkorn (1922-1993) is celebrated as an American master in his native United States, particularly on the West Coast, where he lived and worked for much of his career. Highly sensitive to his environment, Diebenkorn used a palette and color composition influenced by the light and location of the environments in which he worked. Whether abstract or figurative, his paintings powerfully evoke the varied locations of his studios, including the desert of New Mexico and the California coast from San Francisco to Los Angeles. This volume explores his ever-changing, always-compelling output across four decades, as well as his shifts in style and subject matter in both painting and drawing. It covers the three distinct periods of his artistic life, which started when he gained recognition for his abstract works in the early 1950s. He then turned his attention to figurative painting, and finally, in 1967, he embarked on a long and highly successful period of abstract paintings and drawings, titled the Ocean Park series"--Jacket

Two schools of cool by Sarah C Bancroft( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Representing contemporary artists from the last half century, this unique exhibition catalog captures the spirit of a daring experiment to pair California icons with their new millennium comrades. In the 1960s and 1970s a group of aesthetic adventurers transformed L.A. from cultural desert to artistic oasis. These West Coast artists, poets, dancers, filmmakers, and photographers fomented a creative outburst that rivaled New York City's. Nearly four decades later, Southern California remains a fertile ground for some of the most exciting and daring art being made today. This book accompanying an exhibition of the same name explores the two Schools of Cool in collaborative, intergenerational pairings between John Baldessari and Shana Lutker; Llyn Foulkes and Stanya Kahn; George Herms and Sarah Cain; Ed Moses and Robert Williams; and Allen Ruppersberg and Amanda Ross-Ho. These pairs have worked together on new, collaborative installations that reveal and transcend the shifts that have taken place in the art world in the past half century-including the increasing prominence of female artists, distinct methodologies and artistic practices, and the use of new technologies. This catalog features the five installations, including paintings and works on paper, sculptures and assemblages, audio-video and interactive installations, that are the result of these collaborations, as well as insightful interviews with the curator and with the artists in which the artists offer thoughts on their own work, their collaborative process, and their projects for the exhibition

Raised in the Midwest, James Rosenquist (born 1933) worked as a billboard painter before rising to fame in the 1960s as a leading figure of the Pop art movement alongside contemporaries Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Claes Oldenburg. Drawing on his experience as a billboard painter, Rosenquist's work plays on the iconography and style of advertising and mass media to create distinctive compositions that explore the culture of capitalism. James Rosenquist: Four Decades, published to accompany an exhibition at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, offers a selective survey of the artist's work since the 1970s, touching on themes as multifaceted as aesthetics, geopolitics, technology, ecology, outer space and time travel.
