Cézanne's watercolors : between drawing and painting by Matthew Thomas Simms( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cezanne's watercolours exhibit not only kaleidoscopic arrays of translucence but also very light graphite pencil lines that contrast strikingly with the soft watery touches of colour. These drawn lines have been largely overlooked in previous studies of Cezanne's work in this medium. In this ravishing book, Matthew Simms argues that it was the dialogue between drawing and painting - the movement between pencil and paintbrush - that attracted Cezanne to watercolour. The technique allowed Cezanne to express what he termed his "sensations" in two distinct modes that become a record of his shifting and spontaneous responses to his subject. Combining close visual analysis and examination of historical context, Simms focuses on the counterpoint of drawing and colour in Cezanne's work over the course of his career and as viewed in relation to his oil paintings. More than a tool for sketching or preparing for oil paintings, Simms contends, watercolour was a unique means of expression in its own right that allowed Cezanne to combine in one place the two otherwise opposed mediums of drawing and painting

Robert Irwin : all the rules will change by Robert Irwin( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Irwin, one of the most influential postwar American artists and a pioneering figure of California Light and Space Art, is the subject of this book that traces his development and remarkable accomplishments in the 1960s. The first publication to focus exclusively on Irwin's extraordinary trajectory during the 1960s, this book explores how the artist moved from creating small-scale abstract paintings to temporary installations that responded to the specific circumstances of a given site. During this relatively brief interval, Irwin methodically interrogated the most essential premises of art and, in the process, ultimately redefined what a work of art could be, proposing that art not be limited to objects but be considered a way of seeing. Through its discussion of Irwin's paintings, sculptures, and his new site--conditioned scrim installation created in response to the Hirshhorn's distinctive round architecture, this publication immerses the reader in the artist's groundbreaking investigations into the nature of color, light, and perception. The essays offer fresh insights into Irwin's art while highlighting his pivotal role in the broader aesthetic developments in the 1960s."--Publisher's website
Robert Irwin : a conditional art by Matthew Thomas Simms( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive study of one of the most significant and prolific American postwar artists. Frequently associated with California Light and Space Art, Robert Irwin (b. 1928) began as an abstract painter in the 1950s. Since that time, he has worked in architectural and outdoor interventions, developing and expanding what he terms a "conditional" art practice. He employs a wide range of media, such as scrim veils, chain link fencing, Cor-ten walls, flowering plants, palm trees, fluorescent light bulbs, and more. Ultimately, Irwin's medium is none of these specific materials, but rather perception itself--its forms, limits, and possibilities for expansion and change. In the artist's own words, the aim of his work is to change "the whole visual structure of how you look at the world." This handsome, richly illustrated volume is the first book devoted to an in-depth investigation of the entirety of Irwin's career, tracing the development of Irwin's ambitions from his earliest canvases to his most recent light installations. Drawing on a wealth of primary sources, including the artist's library and his published and unpublished writings, Matthew Simms surveys the full scope of Irwin's creative output, the reception of his work, and its multiple aesthetic and historical contexts. In the resulting thorough yet accessible account, essential for scholars of post-war American art, conditional art emerges as a continual source of renewed aesthetic perception
Robert Irwin : site determined by Robert Irwin( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores four decades of Robert Irwin's outdoor environment projects through his drawings and architectural models. Over the course of a storied career, Robert Irwin has come to regard art as site determined, or something that works in and responds to its surroundings. This book opens with his projects on college campuses between 1975 and 1982. These are followed by Irwin's major, yet never realized, commission for the Miami International Airport, where he proposed to transform the structure, parking lots, and roadways into a sequence of aesthetic and practical spaces that engaged directly with the South Florida environment. It then turns to one of Irwin's most celebrated works, the Central Garden at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. Finally, the book takes readers to the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas, and one of Irwin's most ambitious works to date-a monumental artwork that brilliantly connects viewers to the land and sky. Throughout this collection of drawings, models, and photographs of magnificent, groundbreaking projects, readers will come to see Irwin as a visionary artist and a brilliant draftsman"--

Tobias Pils - Untitled [room] & MARFA paintings by Tobias Raphael Pils( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in German and English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit einem Vokabular einfacher, flächiger Formen gelingt Tobias Pils ein eigener malerischer Ton, der unmittelbar erkennbar ist. Seine Bildsprache greift rudimentäre Elemente einer Körperlichkeit von Menschen und Dingen auf, die sich zu spannungsvollen Verbindungen fügen. Der Katalog konzentriert sich auf zwei kürzlich entstandene Werkgruppen. Es handelt sich zunächst um einen Raum mit 19 Bildtafeln, der für die Art Basel konzipiert wurde. Bein zweiten Bildkomplex handelt sich um Gemälde auf Leinwand und Papier, die im vergangenen Winter in Marfa, Texas entstanden sind. Verknappung, Vereinfachung der Elemente und Flächigkeit der Bildkonzeption sind die Merkmale von Pils Ästhetik.00Exhibition: Josef Albers Museum, Bottrop, Germany (31.05.-03.09.2017)

The hidden Cézanne : from sketchbook to canvas by Anita Haldemann( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the founding artists of modern art, Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) is now widely acclaimed as the preeminent painter of the late nineteenth century. Less well known is his groundbreaking work as a draftsman; relatively little scholarship has been devoted to this aspect of his oeuvre, which is rarely presented in exhibitions. The Kunstmuseum Basel's Kupferstichkabinett (Department of Prints and Drawings) contains 154 sheets by Cézanne, making it the most comprehensive and significant collection of the artist's drawings in the world. The collection dates back to the 1930s, attesting to the museum's farsighted collection policy. Two thirds of these drawings come from dissolved sketchbooks, which were reconstructed in view of this presentation. The starting point and nucleus of Cézanne's creative thinking, they allow us to observe Cézanne's everyday practice as a draftsman up close. Early scenes of violence appear side by side with portrait sketches; copies after Delacroix or ancient sculptures alternate with landscapes and bathers. Repetition and slight variation of the angle from which he studied a motif enabled the artist to understand how perceptions formed and to develop entirely new pictorial registers. In his watercolors, Cézanne explored the dynamic interplay between line and color, casting off the constraints of the tradition. In his paintings, too, the line is vital. He often produced a preparatory drawing on the canvas and reworked it with the brush before executing the picture in paint. This book offers fascinating insights into this outstanding painter's creative process. Exhibition: Kunstmuseum Basel - Neubau, Switzerland (10.06.-24.09.2017)
