Matisse Picasso ( Book )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and French and held by 1,177 libraries worldwide
Annotation. Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso have long been seen as the twin giants of modern art, as polar opposites but also as complementary figures. Between them they are the originators of many of the most significant innovations of 20th-century painting and sculpture, but their relationship has rarely been explored in all of its closeness and complexity. In spite of their initial rivalry, the two masters eventually acknowledged one another as equals, becoming, in their old age, increasingly important to one another both artistically and personally. From the time of their initial encounters in 1906 in Gertrude and Leo Stein's Paris studio until 1917, they individually produced some of the greatest art of the 20th century and maintained an openly competitive relationship brimming with intense innovation. Matisse Picasso presents the artists' oeuvres in groupings that reveal the affinities but also the extreme contrasts of their artistic visions. Published to accompany the landmark exhibition (a joint effort of The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Tate Modern, London; the Reunion des musees nationaux/Musee Picasso, and the Musee national d'art moderne/Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris), Matisse Picasso is the first major examination of the fascinating relationships between their art, their careers, and their lives. Thirty-four essays, each by a member of the exhibition's curatorial team, focus on a particular moment in the artists' evolving relationship. These texts are accompanied by an introductory history, commentary on the public perception of important artistic relationships, and an extensive chronology.

Arshile Gorky : a retrospective by Arshile Gorky ( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 718 libraries worldwide
Arshile Gorky was one of the central figures in American art's shift toward abstraction during the first half of the twentieth century. Accompanying the first major retrospective of his work in almost thirty years, this book traces the evolution of Gorky's arresting visual style. Nearly two hundred paintings, drawings, sculptures, and prints from all phases of his career--an number of them never before published or exhibited--are beautifully reproduced, including a large figurative painting from 1927 known previously only through its preparatory studies. Throughout the volume, some of Gorky's best-known and most powerful paintings are paired with related pieces and meticulous preliminary studies, shedding new light on his artistic process. Illustrated essays incorporating recently discovered biographical information and photographs examine his experience of the Armenian Genocide, his collaboration with the Works Progress Administration, and his explorations of abstraction and Surrealism, providing important reassessments of his life and career. Admired by many of his contemporaries and hugely influential for subsequent generations of artists, Gorky created a complex and deeply moving body of work that encompasses styles ranging from Impressionism to Cubism, Surrealism, and the beginnings of Abstract Expressionism.

Albers and Moholy-Nagy : from the Bauhaus to the new world ( Book )
10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 669 libraries worldwide
This beautifully illustrated book highlights the contrasts and correspondences in the lives and work of two of Modernism's greatest innovators, Josef Albers (1888-1976) and László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1947). Beginning in the 1930s, Albers and Moholy-Nagy each developed a rigorously abstract language that condensed art to its visual fundamentals: line, color, texture, light, and form. This language experienced a creative explosion during their Bauhaus years, when both artists moved freely between media and disciplines. Essays by leading scholars follow the artists' separate paths through to their emigration to the United States, where each continued to push tirelessly the conventions of artistic practice--Albers at Black Mountain College in North Carolina and then at Yale University, and Moholy-Nagy in Chicago at the New Bauhaus School and the Institute of Design. As highly influential teachers, Albers and Moholy-Nagy became important catalysts for the transmission of Modernist ideas from Europe to America.

6 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 545 libraries worldwide
"I never painted my dreams, I painted my own reality." -Frida Kahlo Frida Kahlo is one of the most significant artists of the 20th century. Her tragic and dramatic personal life has been the subject of numerous biographies and a major film starring Salma Hayek. In recent years, public interest in Kahlo's life has threatened to eclipse serious consideration of her artistic achievement. This beautifully produced book, which accompanies a major exhibition, presents an enlightening retrospective of her work, refocusing attention on the artistic qualities that have made her paintings some of the most iconic images of the last 100 years. Presenting major works alongside the lesser-known, and incorporating paintings, drawings, and photographs, the volume offers a thoroughly researched, accessible overview of Kahlo's career, with essays by leading critics and an extensive illustrated glossary that explores key recurring elements in her paintings.
Joseph Beuys : actions, vitrines, environments by Mark Rosenthal ( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 545 libraries worldwide
"Joseph Beuys (1921-86) - the German sculptor and performance artist - became one of the most influential figures in modern and contemporary art. His charismatic presence, extraordinary life, and unconventional artistic style (incorporating ritualized movement and sound, and materials such as fat, felt, earth, honey, blood, and even dead animals) gained him international fame and notoriety from the 1960s through the 1980s. Beuys's innovative influence is particularly felt in the field of sculpture, whose definition he expanded to encompass performance art, vitrine cases, and site-specific environments." "With a comprehensive chronology of Beuys's activities as an artist and activist, this book is essential for those interested in the life, work, and legacy of one of the art world's most intriguing figures."--BOOK JACKET.
Cy Twombly : cycles and seasons by Cy Twombly ( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 535 libraries worldwide
"Cy Twombly (b.1928) is one of the leading figures from the generation of American artists that also included Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol. Unlike them, he left America early in his career to live and work in Italy where he drew inspiration from European literature and classical culture. He swiftly built an international reputation with his uniquely expressive abstract paintings, works on paper and sculpture." "Accompanying a major, touring retrospective spanning over fifty years of Twombly's work, this book provides a long-needed critical overview of his career, focusing on his paintings, drawings and sculpture. There is also a rare and wide-ranging interview with the artist and a newly commissioned text by the artist Tacita Dean, as well as an illustrated chronology and extensive bibliography." "Combining the latest scholarship with numerous colour illustrations, this will be the most thorough examination of the life and work of this artist for years to come."--BOOK JACKET.

Kandinsky : the path to abstraction ( Book )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and German and held by 368 libraries worldwide
Wassily Kandinsky (18661944) pioneered abstract art and is a key figure in the history of modernism. This groundbreaking, fully illustrated study of Kandinsky's formative years follows his move from figurative painting to abstraction. Inspired in his early years by folklore scenes from Russia and the heightened colors of the landscape of southern Germany, he want on to co-found the Expressionist "Blaue Reiter" (Blue Rider) group of painters with Gabriele M]nter, Alexej Jawlensky, and Franz Marc. Gradually he stripped away the descriptive detail in his painting, hiding visual imagery behind fields of bright color encompassed by strong lines. He felt that what he had discovered was a path to a new spiritual reality, more akin to music than the physical world.
