Basquiat by Jean-Michel Basquiat( Book )

26 editions published in 2010 in 4 languages and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) quickly became one of art history's most luminescent personalities; his friendships with Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Madonna, as well as his tragic death at the age of twenty-seven, are the stuff of legend. This retrospective publication traces the artist's unique career and pinpoints his important position in art history. Basquiat's works are marked by the kind of intensity and energy that also determined the course of his brief life. In just eight years--comparable to the career of Egon Schiele--Basquiat not only managed to create an extensive oeuvre, but also to establish new figurative and expressive elements alongside Conceptual and Minimal Art. At the age of twenty-one, he became the youngest artist ever to be invited to the documenta, while his work also anticipated that of Germany's Junge Wilde movement and the art of the nineties."--Publisher's website
Edvard Munch : signs of modern art by Edvard Munch( Book )

17 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Though he is more often viewed as a semi-lunatic Symbolist or proto-Expressionist, the great Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944) was in fact a forerunner of much Modern art. His works concentrate on the human dramas of love and death, and on contemporary conditions of claustrophobia and alienation-or what he called "the modern life of the soul"--Frequently deploying contemporary effects to depict this condition. He worked in paint, printmaking and photography (though he once wrote that "the camera cannot compete with a brush and canvas, as long as it can't be used in heaven and hell"). Edvard Munch: Signs of Modern Art assesses the significance of Munch's oeuvre as a highly independent contribution to Modern art, drawing on more than 100 paintings, as well as 60 drawings and prints. In flouting the boundaries between the genres of painting and printmaking, in his work with photography and film, and through his emphasis on process-for example exposing his paintings to outdoor weather-Munch opened up a turn-of-the-century view of the future
Basquiat : the unknown notebooks by Jean-Michel Basquiat( Book )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Accompanying a major traveling exhibition, this first-ever survey of the rarely seen notebooks of Basquiat features the artist's handwritten notes, poems, and drawings, along with related works on paper and large-scale paintings. With no formal training, Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) succeeded in developing a new and expressive style to become one of the most influential artists in the postmodern revival of figurative during the 1980s. In a series of notebooks from the early to mid-1980s, never before exhibited, Basquiat combined text and images reflecting his engagement with the countercultures of graffiti and hip-hop in New York City, as well as pop culture and world events. Filled with handwritten texts, poems, pictograms, and drawings, many of them iconic images that recur throughout his artwork-teepees, crowns, skeleton-like silhouettes, and grimacing masks-and these notebooks reveal much about the artist's creative process and the importance of the written word in his aesthetic. With over 150 notebook pages and numerous drawings and paintings, this important book sheds new light on Basquiat's career and his critical place in contemporary art history."
Jean-Michel Basquiat : now's the time by Jean-Michel Basquiat( Book )

13 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean-Michel Basquiat took the New York City art world by storm in the early 1980s and gained international recognition by creating powerful and expressive works that confronted issues of racism, identity and social tension. Although his career was cut short by his untimely death at age 27, his groundbreaking drawings and paintings continue to challenge perceptions, provoke vital dialogues and empower us to think critically about the world around us. Jean-Michel Basquiat: Now's the Time marks the first major retrospective of the artist's work in Canada and will feature close to 85 large-scale paintings and drawings from private collections and public museums across Europe and North America
Basquiat : boom for real by Jean Michel Basquiat( Book )

12 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Basquiat first came to prominence when he collaborated with Al Diaz to spray-paint enigmatic statements under the pseudonym SAMO©. He went on to work on collages, Xerox art, postcards, performances, and music before establishing his reputation as one of the most important painters of his generation. Accompanying a major exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery, this book opens with introductory essays from the curators, which place his practice in a wider art historical context and look at his career through the lens of performance. This insightful new survey also features extended captions, rare archival material, and extensive photography, demonstrating how Basquiat's legacy remains more powerful and relevant than ever today
Words are all we have : paintings by Jean-Michel Basquiat by Jean-Michel Basquiat( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the New York of the eighties, Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960?1988) was the first African-American artist to receive international attention. The enormous scope of his oeuvre is inversely proportional to the short, productive period he was given. As the complexity and trailblazing innovative power of his paintings and drawings has been previously discussed at length-this book focuses on the creative aspect of language in Basquiat?s work. With its complex structures, spontaneous rhythms, and sampled, collage-like manifestations appealing to all of the senses, his work was vaulted into the orbit of the Beat Generation?s pop poets and the protagonists of the musical avant-garde. The multitalented Basquiat created a shimmering, syncopated fabric of images and text, which the American curator and critic Robert Storr aptly called 'eye rap'. It was this unpretentious, avant-garde and spontaneous way of working with which Jean-Michel Basquiat wrote art history. It was an artistic means for him to respond to the complexity of modern life in the big city
Street and studio : from Basquiat to Séripop by Dieter Buchhart( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in 3 languages and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publication focuses on the street as the place where art today is created, and as a source of inspiration to young artists whose lives and art are marked by an urban and mobile lifestyle. But the street also has its art history tradition: an important figure is the American neo-expressionist, Jean-Michel Basquiat, whose work had a significant influence on the changing forms of Street Culture and Urban Art. Important reference sources of the theoretical argument are Guy Debord's "Théorie de la Dérive" (1956) and Jean Baudrillard's "Kool Killer" oder "Der Aufstand der Zeichen" (1978). To accompany the exhibition in the Kunsthalle Wien, the catalog is dedicated to the "Künstleratelier Strasse" (the street as artist studio) and presents alternative ways of shaping and dealing with public space, traces the line of tradition and introduces a new generation of contemporary artists. Exhibition: Kunsthalle Wien, 25 June - 10 October 2010
Jean-Michel Basquiat by Jean-Michel Basquiat( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in French and English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published in conjunction with the exhibition at Fondation Louis Vuitton, this catalogue captures the dazzling career of Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988). Featuring reproductions of all 120 works shown, it provides a unique opportunity to re-examine the oeuvre of this seminal artist. Dieter Buchart, exhibition curator and catalogue editor, explores the existential character of Basquiat's line, among other key topics of investigation. Following a preface by Suzanne Pagé, texts by Okwui Enwezor, Olivier Michelon, Francisco Pellizzi, Jordana Moore Saggese, Paul Schimmel, and Franklin Sirmans expand on the approaches to the artist's work, contextualizing its creation, its importance within the history of twentieth-century art, and its relevance today. They address essential subjects running throughout Basquiat's oeuvre, while placing it within the critical and historical framework fundamental to its understanding."

Ménage à trois : Warhol, Basquiat, Clemente by Susanne Kleine( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The New York art scene of the 1980s is legendary - vital, creative and multimedia-based. It provided young talent with a playground full of opportunities. Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Francesco Clemente are three of the main protagonists of this era. Between 1983 and 1985, they produced a number of collaborative works, whose appeal was based on their contrary painterly gestures. The works reflect the era, the (pop) star role and the new way in which the artists saw themselves, their mutual fascination but also the dark side of fame. This catalogue provides a comprehensive look at the collaboration between the three artists in the context of their own work and shows the captivating references and differences, the multifaceted nature of the collaboration and its art-historical importance."--Publisher's description

Claude Monet : a floating world by Claude Monet( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Albertina is devoting a large monographic exhibition to Claude Monet's treatment of color, which has seen little examination to date, as well as to the painter's passionate fascination with the world of plants and water in the garden of his country home in Giverny. Three paintings from the museum's own holdings as well as important loan works from international museums and private collections illuminate Monet's development from realism to impressionism and onward to a mode of painting in which colors and light gradually separate from the subjects that reflect them, with the motif breaking free from mere observation of nature. Eventually, albeit only after Monet's death, these late works would pave the way for abstract expressionism in painting. On view from 21 September 2018 until 6 January 2019. This exhibition is realized with the generous support of the Musée Marmottan Monet, Paris. More than any other artist, Claude Monet represents Impressionist painting. This volume illustrates Monet's career from Realism via Impressionism to a form of painting in which the colours and light gradually become detached from the object. Focus is laid on his passionate exploration of the landscape along the Seine, the coasts of France and the motifs of his garden in Giverny

Basquiat by himself by Jean-Michel Basquiat( Book )

6 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An American artist of Haitian and Puerto Rican descent, Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-88) first made a name for himself as part of a graffiti duo who wrote enigmatic epigrams on the Manhattan's Lower East Side during the 1970s, a place and time that saw the coalescence of hip hop, punk, and street art cultures. By the 1980s, his neo-expressionist paintings were being exhibited in galleries and museums across the globe. Encompassing Basquiat's lifelong intensive study of the self, Basquiat: By Himself is dedicated to the expressive self-portraits he created. These portraits are regarded as being among the most important of his radical creative works, and the essays here examine some fifty specific portraits of himself, as well as the concealed reproductions of the artist that can be found in his series of likenesses of African American men. As this book reveals, these similarities were produced by a man who, himself affected by everyday racism, identified with the heroes, saints, and martyrs he portrayed. Within these key works, we can see Basquiat's focus on identity, discrimination, and prejudice to capitalism, the market, and oppression. ​Featuring 120 color images, Basquiat: By Himself is the first book to examine the central position Basquiat's self-portraits hold within his oeuvre and sheds new light on the works of this intriguing artist."--

Ed Ruscha : ribbon words by Edward Ruscha( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The is the first publication to focus on Ed Ruscha?s (born 1937) 'Ribbon Word' works, begun in 1966. It features reproductions of more than 50 masterpieces, along with three essays by the show?s curator Dieter Buchhart, as well as contributions by Glenn O?Brien and Alexandra Schwartz, highlighting the works? wide array of subtle color and nuanced drawing technique, and showing how Ruscha?s paper ribbons became three-dimensional, illusionistic objects. Ruscha developed this body of work from calligraphic lines and cursive handwriting in order to give his drawings the appearance of three-dimensional forms. His imaginary ribbon-word objects provoke multiple cultural meanings as they suggest sculptures modeled by light. Ruscha?s breathtaking work, using an inimitable trompe l?oeil technique with the application of gunpowder, constitutes a major contribution to 20th-century art
