Matisse Picasso by Réunion des musées nationaux (France)( Book )

14 editions published in 2002 in English and French and held by 1,289 WorldCat member 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
Surrealism : desire unbound by Jennifer Mundy( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in 3 languages and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The surrealist leader André Breton described desire as the "only master that man must recognize." One of the surrealism's defining themes, desire was expressed variously in Salvador Dalí's charged landscapes, Joan Miró's lyric abstractions, and Hans Bellmer's unsettling nudes. Influenced by Sigmund Freud, the surrealists saw sexual desire as a path to self-knowledge - "a theatre of provocations and prohibitions in which life's profound urges confront one another." Published to accompany a major transatlantic exhibition of international surrealism, this lavishly illustrated catalogue explores desire in surrealist art in both words and images. Key works by such artists as Marcel Duchamp, René Magritte, Max Ernst, Dalí, Giogio de Chirico, Alberto Giacometti, Bellmer, Meret Oppenheim and Claude Cahun are illustrated and discussed, as are surrealist films and photographs by Man Ray, Brassaï, and others. The volume also features some of the rare and beautiful books produced by the surrealists in their celebration of love, as well as a selection of fascinating manuscripts, letters, and documentary photographs that reveal the personal contexts of the group's exploration of desire. Essays by leading scholars show how the theme of desire was implicated in almost all aspects of surrealist activity - not only its art and writings, but also its political struggles and its ethical stances on issues involving individual liberty and the social control of sexuality. This attractive and provocative volume illustrates a vision of desire that embraces both sublime exaltation and dark carnality. It shows the unprecendented intensity with which the surrealists extolled love and the extent to which they depicted desire as implicated in every thought, action, event, and encounter. A major contribution to surrealist studies, this volume is edited by Jennifer Mundy and has contributions from Dawn Ades, Katherine Conley, Neil Cox, Carolyn J. Dean, Hal Foster, Vincent Gille, Jean-Michel Goutier, David Hopkins, Radovan Ivsic, Julia Kelly, Annie Le Brun, David Lomas, and Alyce Mahon. -- from dust jacket
Henri Matisse : the cut-outs by Henri Matisse( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reconsiders the cut-outs, including the materials and methods, the artist's environmental ambitions for them, tensions between art and decoration and between drawing and color
Arshile Gorky : a retrospective by Arshile Gorky( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 779 WorldCat member 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 by Josef Albers( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member 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
Joseph Beuys : actions, vitrines, environments by Mark Rosenthal( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 675 WorldCat member 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."--Jacket
Soul of a nation : art in the age of Black power by Tate Modern (Londres)( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the period of radical change that was 1963-83, young black artists at the beginning of their careers in the USA confronted key questions and pressures. How could they make art that would stand as innovative, original, formally and materially complex, while also making work that reflected their concerns and experience as black Americans? This significant new publication, accompanying an exhibition at Tate Modern, surveys this crucial period in American art history, bringing to light previously neglected histories of twentieth-century black artists, including Sam Gilliam, Melvin Edwards, Jack Whitten, William T. Williams and Frank Bowling. This book features substantial essays from co-curators Mark Godfrey and Zoe Whitley, writing on abstraction and figuration respectively. It will also explore the art historical and social contexts with subjects including black feminism; AfriCOBRA and other artist-run groups; the role of museums in the debates of the period; and where visual art sat in relation to the Black Arts Movement

Donald Judd by Donald Judd( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in 3 languages and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning as a critic and painter, Donald Judd moved into three dimensions in the early 1960s, with box-like structures arranged on the gallery floor or mounted on the wall. Initially constructed by hand, his sculptures were later industrially manufactured in such materials as galvanised iron, steel, Plexiglas and plywood. His use of brightly hued lacquers, vibrant colours and polished metals ran counter to the public's understanding of what 'minimalist' sculpture should look like." "The authors explore the conflicts between previous critical interpretations of Judd and his own philosophical, political and moral understanding of his work. They also examine the importance of colour and new man-made materials in Judd's work. The inclusion of a section on Judd's own permanent installations at the remote town of Marfa, Texas, a full chronology and a major essay by the artist on his own use of colour, completes a comprehensive survey of this compelling artist."--Publisher's description
Frida Kahlo by Frida Kahlo( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member 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
Gerhard Richter : panorama by Gerhard Richter( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gerhard Richter is widely seen as one of the most important painters at work in the world today.

Agnes Martin by Agnes Martin( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in German and English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Canadian-born Agnes Martin was one of the pre-eminent painters of the second half of the 20th century, whose work has had a significant influence both on artists of her own time and for subsequent generations. A contemporary of the abstract expressionists though often identified with minimalism, Martin was of the few woman artists who came to prominence in the predominately masculine art world of the late 1950s and 1960s, and became a particularly important role model for younger women and artists. This survey provides and overview of Martin's career, from lesser-known early experimental works through her striped and grided grey paintings and use of colour in various formats, to a group of her final works that reintroduce bold forms. A selection of drawings and watercolours is also included
Robert Rauschenberg by Robert Rauschenberg( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The early 1950s, when Robert Rauschenberg launched his career, was the heyday of the heroic gestural painting of Abstract Expressionism. Rauschenberg challenged this tradition, inventing new intermedia forms of art making that shaped the decades to come. Published in conjunction with the inaugural 21st-century retrospective of this defining figure, this book offers fresh perspectives on Rauschenberg's widely celebrated Combines (1954--64) and silkscreen paintings (1962--64). It also illuminates lesser-known periods within Rauschenberg's career, including his work of the early 1950s and that from the late 1960s onward, now compelling and prescient to contemporary eyes. Sixteen short essays by eminent scholars and emerging new writers focus on specific moments within Rauschenberg's career, examining his creative production across an extraordinary range of media. Integrating new scholarship, documentary imagery and archival materials, Robert Rauschenberg is the first comprehensive catalogue of the artist's career in 20 years, an important contribution to American cultural and intellectual history across disciplines and a necessary volume for anyone interested in art of the present day. Over the span of six decades, Robert Rauschenberg (1925--2008) worked in an astonishing range of mediums including painting, sculpture, prints, photography and performance, and became one of the most transformative figures in postwar American culture. Working alone and in collaboration with artists, dancers, musicians and writers, Rauschenberg produced a vast body of work that continues to resonate today."--
Joan Miró : the ladder of escape by Joan Miró( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joan Miró's paintings are among the most widely recognized of any modern artist, reproduced everywhere from books to T-shirts to posters. While he is most often seen as a surrealist or a postwar abstract painter, terms he rejected, this book brings new insights into Miró's work by framing it in the context of the turbulent times in which he lived. Miró's contemporary, Picasso, left Spain, promising never to return under a Fascist government. In contrast, Miró chose internal exile, removing himself to the island of Mallorca, a decision that has led to his being viewed as a less political artist. This book challenges that impression by focusing on Miró's politically engaged works, from the rural, anarchist tradition and strong Catalan nationalism reflected in early paintings like The Farm and Head of a Catalan Peasant to the triptych The Hope of a Condemned Man (1974) through which he publicly declared his opposition to Franco. Drawing on new scholarship from an international group of experts, the book accompanies the first exhibition in nearly half a century to show work from throughout Miró's career. It sheds new light on the life and achievements of one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century--Publisher
Exposed : voyeurism, surveillance, and the camera since 1870( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the rise of the photographic medium in the late 19th century, people have been fascinated by the camera’s ability to record striking moments both public and private. From Mathew Brady’s haunting images of the Civil War to the present day paparazzi’s brand of voyeurism-for-hire, photography has long served to capture not only the posed portrait but also the personal, the intimate, the unexpected, and the taboo. This fascinating book examines the ways in which acts of voyeurism and surveillance have inspired, challenged, and expanded the medium of photography throughout its evolution.Featuring photography by Sophie Calle, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Harun Farocki, Nan Goldin, Robert Mapplethorpe, Helmut Newton, Andy Warhol, and Weegee, among others, Exposed chronicles the artistic, political, and even moral dilemmas that underlie some of these artists’ best known works. Through insightful essays and commentary by Sandra Phillips, one of the foremost authorities on the history of 20th-century photography, Exposed examines some of the most invasive and unsettling aspects of photography, including the use of the hidden camera, the production of erotic pictures and pornography, and the intersection of photography with both celebrity and violence
Zero to infinity : arte povera, 1962-1972 by Tate Modern (Gallery)( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Italy and art are synonymous. When either is mentioned, images of Etruscan sculptures and Renaissance frescoes come to mind, along with extraordinary architectural treasures that bridge the centuries. Even today, these powerful reminders of a distant past continue to influence contemporary Italian art and design. With Zero to Infinity: Arte Povera 1962-1972, the Walker Art Center and the Tate Modern have undertaken an ambitious project - to represent an important yet seldom seen period in Italian modern art. As the U. S. tour sponsor of Zero to Infinity: Arte Povera 1962-1972, the Italian Trade Commission is proud to share the Walker Art Center's enthusiasm in illustrating the evolution of artistic expression in Italy as reflected in all aspects of Italian life. The Zero to Infinity: Arte Povera 1962-1972 tour sponsorship is part of a new campaign planned by the Italian Trade Commission and several manufacturers' associations, and created under the auspices of the Italian Ministry of Industry and Foreign Trade. This new campaign, "Life in 'I' Style," focuses on the successful combination of Italian creativity, traditional craftsmanship, and industrial production."--BOOK JACKET
Georgia O'Keeffe by Georgia O'Keeffe( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) was one of the foundational figures of American modernism. O'Keeffe rose to prominence as a painter in the early twentieth century at the heart of the New York avant-garde circle that centred around Alfred Stieglitz, who would become her husband. Whilst many contemporary texts on O'Keeffe have focused on her relationship with Stieglitz or re-hashed familiar clichés, particularly about her paintings of flowers, this book brilliantly reassesses the artist's place in the canon of twentieth-century art. Featuring essays from a new generation of scholars, O'Keeffe is revealed as a multi- faceted artist who constantly experimented at the boundary between figuration and abstraction. Lavishly illustrated, and including rarely reproduced works and a full illustrated chronology, this is the definitive book on one of the most significant and popular artists of modern times."
The EY exhibition : Paul Klee : making visible by Matthew Gale( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Swiss-born artist Paul Klee (1879-1940) created some of the most innovative and best-loved works of the twentieth century. He combined the machine aesthetic of modernism with lyrical, organic elements, arriving at a visual language entirely his own. Although he moved freely between media and from figuration to abstraction, Klee's works remain instantly recognisable, often characterised by a playfulness and wit that can sharpen to biting satire on occasion. This book surveys Klee's entire career, particularly his role as recordkeeper of his work and the way this influenced the way his work was then exhibited. Featuring his best-known paintings reproduced in their full colourful complexity, the book focuses on Klee's major exhibitions during his lifetime. placing his output in the context of the period in which he lived, revealing an anxious artist who, despite his quirky lyricism, was troubled by the challenges of the modern world
Anni Albers by Anni Albers( Book )

9 editions published in 2018 in English and German and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anni Albers (1899-1994) was a textile designer, weaver, writer and printmaker, who was among the leading pioneers of twentieth-century modernism. Throughout her fruitful career she inspired a reconsideration of fabrics, both in their functional roles and as wall hangings, truly establishing thread and weaving as a valid medium for art. In her later years, Albers took up print-making, translating many of her persistent themes and ideas into two-dimensional form. But while Albers has been extremely influential for younger generations of artists and designers, her contribution to modernist art history has, until now, been rather overlooked. In 2018, a groundbreaking exhibition, together with this accompanying publication will present Albers's most important works to fully explore and redefine her contribution to twentieth-century art and design, and highlight Albers's significance as an artist in her own right, rather than alongside her husband Josef . Contextualising Albers's early career at the Bauhaus, and her teaching years at Black Mountain College, this beautifully illustrated book will showcase major commissioned works, wall hangings, designs for commercial use, drawings and studies, jewellery designed and made by Albers and a selection of her prints
Yayoi Kusama by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yayoi Kusama is one of Japan's most famous living artists. Her originality, innovation and sheer drive to make art have propelled her through a career that has spanned six decades, encompassing painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, collage, film and video, performance, installation and even product design. From the late 1950s to the early 1970s Kusama lived in New York, and was at the forefront of many artistic innovations in the city, becoming close with artists such as Donald Judd, Andy Warhol, Joseph Cornell and Claes Oldenburg, and influencing many others along the way. It was in these years that Kusama was dubbed "the Polka Dot Princess," for her obsessive use of polka dots in installations and happenings. Returning to Japan in her forties, she rebuilt her career, waiting years for the international recognition that she has recently achieved. Now in her ninth decade, Kusama's imagination remains fertile and productive, as she continues to devise dazzling installations and relentlessly hand-paints her ongoing series of minutely detailed figurative fantasy paintings. Accompanying the first major retrospective exhibition of the artist's work in the U.S., this volume features a wealth of works from all periods in Kusama's career, as well as essays by various international curators and critics, discussing Kusama's years in New York, her career after her return to Japan, her installation works and the psychoanalytic import of her art. Yayoi Kusama was born in Matsumoto, Japan, in 1929. She left Japan for New York at the age of 28, following a correspondence with Georgia O'Keeffe, and was soon participating in the city's 1960s wave of happenings and avant-garde activities. In 1973, Kusama returned to Japan and began writing surrealistic novels and poetry. On November 12, 2008, Christies New York sold a work by her for $5.1 million, a record for a living female artist."--Publisher's website
