Agnes Martin by Agnes Martin( Book )

22 editions published in 2015 in English and German and held by 627 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
Henri Rousseau : jungles in Paris by Henri Rousseau( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henri Rousseau (1844-1910) was a self-taught artist with a unique style, exemplified in his visionary jungle scenes. These dream-like tableaux, for which he drew heavily on visits to Paris' Botanical Gardens, captivate with the lushness of their plant and animal life, while unsettling the viewer with their heady combination of exoticism and romanticism. This sumptuously illustrated book provides not only a comprehensive overview of Rousseau's career, but also penetrating insights into his inspiration. With large, color reproductions of his paintings, many previously unpublished illustrations of his sources and influences, and a wealth of new research on his life and work (including the only interview conducted with the artist), "Henri Rousseau: Jungles in Paris is poised to become the definitive volume on this remarkable painter."--Jacket

Zero to infinity : arte povera, 1962-1972 by Richard Flood( Book )

16 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 498 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

Yayoi Kusama by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

15 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 410 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

Giacometti by Alberto Giacometti( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alberto Giacometti is one of the few artists of the last century whose work is almost more recognisable than his name. His distinctive elongated figures are inescapably associated with the post-war climate of existentialist despair. However, the story of Giacometti's evolution, from his first professional works of art through his surrealist compositions, to the emergence of his mature style has rarely been explored fully and in depth. This comprehensive overview of Giacometti's career focuses on the art, the people and the events that influenced him, and on the original and experimental way in which he approached and developed his work. An illustrated glossary of texts on his life and work is accompanied by a plate section of strikingly beautiful illustrations of his sculptures, paintings and drawings as well as sketchbooks, decorative works and photographs from the Foundation Alberto et Annette Giacometti archive some of which have never been published before

Louise Bourgeois : stitches in time by Frances Morris( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Louise Bourgeois has played a vital role in contemporary art for over half a century. Her 1982 exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York was the gallery's first ever retrospective for a woman. Later, in 2000, Bourgeois' vast installation of steel towers in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern formed the inaugural exhibition at London's new gallery. In between these peaks of an illustrious career, Bourgeois has produced a beguiling body of work using spiders, cages, textiles and a range of found and sculpted objects." "In this book, Frances Morris presents a selection of the artist's recent work with a major focus on fabric sculptures and prints. Tough and sometimes very moving, Bourgeois' most recent projects mark out a practitioner who, although in her 90s, remains at the height of her powers."--BOOK JACKET

Phyllida Barlow. Sculpture 1963-2015 by Frances Morris( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seit über 50 Jahren entwickelt die britische Künstlerin Phyllida Barlow (*1944 in Newcastle upon Tyne) großflächige Installationen und Skulpturen, die immerzu eine Überraschung bereithalten. Aus einfachen Materialien – wie etwa Sperrholzplatten, Pappe, Textilien, Gips, Farbe und Kunststoff – hergestellt, hinterfragen Barlows beeindruckende Skulpturen die wechselseitige Beziehung zwischen Objekt und betrachtendem Subjekt. Mit den Registern von Form und Bedeutung spielend, werden ihre Skulpturen, während der Betrachter sie nachzuvollziehen sucht, zu prozessualen Gegenständen – Dingen, die man gesehen hat, und Dingen, die einem in Zukunft begegnen können. Diese umfassende Monografie präsentiert mehr als hundert ihrer Werke, von denen einige hier erstmals zu sehen sind. Sie ist eine unverzichtbare Quelle zur Erforschung der Arbeitsweise dieser Bildhauerin, deren Werk große Beachtung bei Künstlern und Kritikern findet. 0Exhibition: The Fruitmarket Gallery , Edinburgh, UK (27.06.–18.10.2015)
