Albers and Moholy-Nagy : from the Bauhaus to the new world by Josef Albers( Book )

30 editions published in 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 812 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
Robert Rauschenberg by Robert Rauschenberg( Book )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 601 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."--

Malevich by Kazimir Severinovich Malevich( Book )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Russian-born Kazimir Malevich (1879-1935) was Russia's most influential avant-garde artist, a key figure in a succession of art movements in the early twentieth century. His style of severe geometric abstraction, which he called suprematism, was a precursor to the development of constructivism. In the 1930s his work was banned in the Soviet Union after the Stalinist regime labelled abstract art as 'bourgeois'. He then developed a new kind of figuration, still with the aim of communicating his theories about the nature of art. This publication accompanies a unique retrospective of one of the founders of abstract art. The exhibition is unprecedented in its scope, and sheds new light on Malevich's career as a painter, printmaker and teacher. Accessible essays by leading art historians discuss all aspects of his diverse output, offering an overview of his groundbreaking work as well as a more detailed exploration of a number of his drawings, teaching activities and revolutionary ideas. Not only do these texts trace the stylistic evolution of Malevich's oeuvre from his postimpressionist period to suprematism, with0'Black Square' as its most radical outcome. 0Exhibition: Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, the Netherlands (1.11.2013-2.2.2014) / Tate Modern, London, UK (16.7.-19.10.2014)
Rothko : the late series by Mark Rothko( Book )

17 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A leading figure in the Abstract Expressionist movement, Mark Rothko (1903-1970) is widely seen as one of the greatest painters of the 20th century. His paintings are famous for the intense, emotional responses they elicit from viewers. Shortly before his death, Rothko donated nine large-scale works to Tate on the condition that they would always hang together in their own space, separate from the work of other artists. This is how the Rothko Room, one of the highlights of Tate's collection, was born. These paintings form part of a larger series known as The Seagram Murals, which were originally intended for the Four Seasons restaurant in New York, a commission from which Rothko famously withdrew. Now, in this landmark reassessment, The Seagram Murals are reunited and cast in a new light by leading international critics including Briony Fer, David Anfam, and Morgan Thomas. With revealing new research, this groundbreaking book challenges the mythology surrounding Rothko and his work

Picasso 1932 - love, fame, tragedy by Pablo Picasso( Book )

11 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1932 was an extraordinary year for Picasso, even by his own standards. His paintings reached a new level of sensuality and he cemented his status as the most influential artist of the time. Over the course of this year he created some of his best-loved works, from colour-saturated portraits to surrealist drawings, developing ideas from the voluptuous sculptures he had made at his newly acquired country estate. In his personal life, throughout 1932, Picasso kept a delicate balance between tending to his wife Olga Khokhlova and their son Paulo, and his passionate love affair with Marie-Therese Walter, twenty-eight years his junior. This publication will bring these complex artistic and personal dynamics to life. Exhibition: Tate Modern, London, UK (08.03.-09.09.2018)
