Hamptons bohemia : two centuries of artists and writers on the beach by Helen A Harrison( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than two centuries, the Hamptons, a beach resort on the southeastern end of New York's Long Island, have been home to a vibrant community of artists and writers. It was here that Winslow Homer painted bathers and strollers on the ocean beach and Walt Whitman began writing Letters From a Traveling Bachelor. Lee Krasner created her Earth Series in a cramped studio shared with her husband, Jackson Pollock, while down the street Willem de Kooning painted some of his greatest masterpieces. James Fenimore Cooper, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Herman Melville, Frank O'Hara, Patsy Southgate, Peter Matthiessen, Jane Freilicher, Betty Friedan, Robert Motherwell, and Robert Wilson are just a few of the gifted figures to draw inspiration from this famous and fashionable retreat. Illustrated with archival photos and reproductions of the artists' work, and filled with personal ancecdotes and detailed information about the legendary people, places, and events, Hamptons Bohemia chronicles the evolution of a community of the colorful characters who have inhabited it."--BOOK JACKET
Such desperate joy : imagining Jackson Pollock by Helen A Harrison( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No modern artist is more controversial than Jackson Pollock, whose life is the subject of a new feature film starring Ed Harris. With an intense, troubled personality that many see reflected in his radical "drip" paintings, Pollock was the first American painter to be hailed internationally as an innovator. Even before his death in a drunken car crash in 1956, he was mythologized as Abstract Expressionism's quintessential bad boy. But he was also respected for his sincerity, loved for his sweet nature, and envied for his brilliance. Today Pollock's legend looms larger than ever, inspiring poets, playwrights, composers, and choreographers, as well as visual artists. The film Pollock starring Ed Harris as Jackson Pollock, Marcia Gay Harden, Val Kilmer, and Jennifer Connelly is set to be released late Fall 2000. His art, never popular in the conventional sense, has a growing cadre of dedicated enthusiasts. Why is Pollock such an enduring touchstone of American culture? This collection of writings, interviews, creative responses, and personal revelations - many never before published or long out of print - examines the multiple dimensions of his impact and influence, and proves that the real Pollock is even more fascinating than the myth. The book includes never before published art, photos, letters and interviews from the Pollock-Krasner House archives, new contributions by actor/director Ed Harris and musician Patti Smith, and interviews with Patsy Southgate and Willem de Kooning, as well as Clement Greenberg, Peggy Guggenheim, Hans Namuth, Frank O'Hara, Jeffrey Potter, Norman Rockwell, and Barney Rossett
