Miró : from earth to sky by Joan Miró( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known for his spontaneous and imaginative interpretation of the world around him, Joan Miro is one of the most popular artists of the 20th century. His carefree, almost childlike works are at once universal and magical. This beautiful collection of works is arranged chronologically, allowing readers to appreciate the evolution of Miro's themes based on his observation of nature and its transformation in his symbolic language. Each chapter opens with an introductory text and features full-colour illustrations. From his earliest, more figurative works such as Vegetable Garden with Donkey and The Church and Village at Mont-Roig, to more abstract works such as Catalan Peasant with a Guitar and Woman, Bird, Stars, the full range of Miro's oeuvre is on display. Readers will understand how Miro incorporated images of moons, stars, comets, birds, and women into his art, while appreciating his poetic interpretation of these familiar objects. Essays by Miro scholars as well as a text by the artist himself round out this celebration of a painter, sculptor, and draughtsman whose unwavering delight in ordinary objects is both infectious and inspiring.

Works by other artists, done after the master's sketches, further illuminate the enormous influence of Michelangelo's art
Max Ernst Retrospektive ; [anlässlich der Ausstellung "Max Ernst - Retrospektive", Albertina, Wien, 23. Januar bis 5. Mai 2013 ; Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel, 26. Mai bis 8. September 2013] by Max Ernst( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Max Ernst (1891-1976) gehört zu den vielseitigsten Künstlern der Moderne. Nach seinen Anfängen als Dadaist in Köln wurde er bald zu einem der Pioniere des Surrealismus in Paris. Als fortwährender Entdecker neuer Figuren, Formen und Techniken hat sich Max Ernst auch später ständig weiterorientiert. Dabei hat er ein einzigartiges Werk geschaffen, dessen Entwicklung vom bewegten Leben und den wechselnden Aufenthaltsorten des Künstlers in Europa und Amerika mitgeprägt ist. Sein Erfindungsreichtum im Umgang mit Bild- und Inspirationsquellen, die Brüche zwischen Werkphasen und der Wechsel der Themen beeindrucken. Die Publikation zeigt das Œuvre des Künstlers in seinem gesamten Reichtum anhand einer exemplarischen Auswahl von rund 190 Gemälden, Zeichnungen, Collagen und Skulpturen, die den Werkprozess zwischen Rückgriffen auf Vergangenes, dem damaligen politischen Zeitgeschehen und einem visionären Blick in die Zukunft erlebbar machen
Michelangelo : the drawings of a genius by Achim Gnann( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Michelangelo's drawings endowed human physique with an expressive musculature that remains to be rivaled in its feeling for corporeal articulation. His drawings of male nudes in particular, fraught as they are with tempestuous longing, project both tension and pliancy, and a compelling sense of health in the exertions and torque of bodies; he was also readily able to bring contrary qualities of grace and swiftness to depictions of women and cherubim. With over 300 color plates and extensive contextualizing scholarship, Michelangelo: The Drawings of a Genius is the most complete treatment of this work ever published, and thus constitutes a publication of great importance. Masterpieces from the world's finest museums are gathered here, from the early studies for the "Battle of Cascina" and the studies for the Sistine Chapel frescoes, to the drawings for the tomb of Julius II, the Medici tombs, the drawings for Tommaso de' Cavalieri and the later crucifixion scenes; also addressed are those works whose authenticity has been subject to debate. Works by other artists, done after the master's sketches, further illuminate the enormous influence of Michelangelo's art. Painter, sculptor, poet, architect and engineer, Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (1475-1564) was both dauntingly prolific and relentlessly innovative in output. He sculpted two of his greatest works, the "Pieta" and "David," before he turned 30, and created two of the world's best-known paintings on the ceiling and walls of the Sistine Chapel in Rome--the creation scenes from "Genesis" and "The Last Judgment." Giorgio Vasari proposed that Michelangelo represented the pinnacle of all artistic achievement since the beginning of the Renaissance, a view that has survived to this day

Max Ernst retrospective by Max Ernst( Book )

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

"Max Ernst (1891-1976) is one of the most versatile artists of the modern era. Starting out as a Dadaist in Cologne, he soon became one of the pioneers of Surrealism in Paris. In his persistent discovery of new figures, forms, and techniques, Ernst continued to reorient himself throughout his life, creating a unique body of work whose development was influenced by his eventful life and changing domiciles in Europe and America. The ingenuity in his treatment of the sources of his paintings and inspiration, the different stages of his work, and the changing themes are stunning. The publication shows the wealth of the artist's oeuvre in an exemplary selection of around 170 paintings, drawings, collages, and sculptures, making it possible to experience his approach, which involved drawing on the past, the current political events of the day, and a prophetic, visionary view of the future."--Publisher's website
