George Tooker by Robert Cozzolino( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and German and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Tooker first came to prominence for imaginative visions that expressed the uncertainity of the Cold War era. Over the past sixty years, using his own particular blend of figuration and abstraction, he has continued to create radiantly illuminated yet disquieting images. Imbued with moral, spiritual, and sensual power, they quietly demonstrate his passion for issues of social equality, and have garnered admiration from critics and peers alike for their acuity and virtuoso technique." "This book, the first representative overview of Tooker's work for thirty years, provides a much-deserved and comprehensive examination of the scope of his art. In essays comprising new research and offering fresh insights, it explores his passion for composition, his spirituality and his exploration of identity. Featuring superb reproductions of more than eighty of the artist's timeless images, the book also enables readers to see the unexpected ways in which Tooker's work echoes what has been considered avant garde in American art and to appreciate the depth of his resonant, prescient imagery. A major new study of one of America's most influential modern painters, George Tooker celebrates the lifetime achievement of an artist whose work subtly challenges conventinal prejudices and captures the essential mystery at the heart of the human experience."--Jacket
Anders Zorn : Sweden's master painter by Johan Cederlund( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The art of Anders Zorn (1860-1920) reaches into diverse worlds with lavish depictions of Belle Epoque salons and elegant sitters, swirling ballrooms and country dances, bathers in sun-dappled waters, and more. This richly illustrated catalogue explores the life and work of a masterful painter who was born in a small Swedish village and rose to international acclaim. As a young art student Zorn developed a virtuosic command of watercolor, later expanding his repertoire to include oil painting and etching as well. His subject matter ranged widely from fashionable portraits of high society to realistic depictions of modern urban life, aspects of Swedish folk culture, and scenes drawn from his many travels. During his lifetime Zorn became one of the world's preeminent painters, though his name is not as well known today. Accompanying the first major retrospective of Zorn's oeuvre held in the United States in over a century, this volume introduces readers to his bravura brushwork, sensual iconography, and vibrant artistic personality. Featuring more than ninety watercolors, oil paintings, etchings, drawings, photographs, and sculptures, Anders Zorn: Swedens Master Painter reveals the artist's diverse themes, meticulous techniques, and peripatetic career, with works set in such locales as Madrid, Algiers, Constantinople, London, Paris, Venice, New York, Chicago, and his hometown of Mora, Sweden. Four authors present detailed portraits of Zorn's life and work, his career in the United States, his oeuve in the context of Nordic art, and his printmaking activity. Also featuring a comprehensive chronology and historical photographs, this catalogue reveals a painter tradition yet modern; cosmopolitan yet indelibly connected to his Swedish homeland
