Most widely held works by Ann Temkin
Alice Neel by Alice Neel( Book )

16 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,089 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume accompanies a landmark exhibition organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art to celebrate the centennial of the artist's birth. It reviews the full range of Neel's paintings, from her early watercolors to the late work for which she finally achieved renown. Three essays, by Ann Temkin, Susan Rosenberg, and Richard Flood, examine Neel's indirect presence in her paintings, the roots of her work in the culture of the 1930s, and her portrayal of the contemporary art world. The transcript from a roundtable discussion among Neel's sitters and a richly illustrated chronology provide much new information on the artist's life and work."--Jacket
Barnett Newman by Barnett Newman( Book )

23 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and Chinese and held by 930 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most enduringly influential Abstract Expressionists, Barnett Newman (1905-1970) took the genre to a startling new sphere. His tough, spare, emotive paintings were misunderstood and reviled by most critics when they first appeared in 1950 but came to command wide respect and even veneration by the end of the 1960s. Seemingly simple on first viewing, the paintings are in fact richly complicated and unexpectedly diverse. Newman aspired to breadth and nobility in his works, infusing them with deep meaning and producing a powerful physical presence through his mastery of expansive spatial effects and evocative color. While pursuing his personal quest, he managed to challenge, and profoundly change, the parameters of painting." "This book accompanies the first comprehensive exhibition of Barnett Newman's work in three decades. Two essays by prominent scholars survey Newman's career from his founding role in the New York School in the 1940s to his key influence on both Minimalism and conceptual art in the 1960s. Discussed at length are such Newman masterpieces as Onement I (1948), the series Stations of the Cross (1958-66), and the monumental sculpture Broken Obelisk (1967). Featuring 180 color illustrations of his paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures, the book also includes a comprehensive chronology of the artist's life based on new documentation, a selected exhibition history, and a selected bibliography."--Jacket
Constantin Brancusi, 1876-1957 by Friedrich Teja Bach( Book )

28 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In twentieth-century sculpture, one name towers above all others: Romanian-born Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957). This book accompanies a major retrospective exhibition of Brancusi's sculpture, drawings, and photographs, organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. Profusely illustrated throughout, with photographs by the artist and images culled from a wide range of archival sources, it is the most definitive work yet published on this influential artist. The authors provide a detailed reassessment of Brancusi's work, incorporating and extending the profound revisions in scholarship that have been taking place since the last major retrospective in 1969-70
Color chart : reinventing color, 1950 to today by Ann Temkin( Book )

17 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Color Chart addresses the impact of standardized mass-produced color on the art of the past sixty years. Taking the commercial color chart as its central metaphor, the book chronicles an important artistic shift that took place during the middle of the twentieth century: a frank acknowledgment of color as a matter-of-fact element rather than a vehicle of spiritual or emotional content. Collected here are forty-four artists who explore in their works two senses of the phrase "ready-made color": color bought off the shelf, rather than mixed on a palette, and color assigned by chance or arbitrary system, rather than composed with traditional chromatic harmonies in mind." "This volume traces the lineage of the questions provoked by artists' new relationship to color, and the variety of answers that were the result."--Jacket
Picasso Sculpture by Pablo Picasso( Book )

16 editions published in 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Picasso Sculpture presents approximately 150 sculptures--many of them captured in newly commissioned and sometimes multi-view photographs--alongside a selection of works on paper and photographs. Organized into chapters that correspond to distinct periods during which Picasso devoted himself to sculpture, the publication features an introduction by the exhibition curators as well as a richly illustrated documentary chronology focusing on the sculptures included in the exhibition. A comprehensive bibliography and list of historic exhibitions related to Picasso's work in sculpture closes the volume, advancing the understanding of Picasso's practice and lifelong commitment to constant reinvention. -- Provided by publisher

Gabriel Orozco : photogravity by Gabriel Orozco( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1993 Gabriel Orozco removed a lengthwise section of a Citroen DS and reconnected the two sides, making the car's fleet form look lighter yet. Orozco continues his experimentations with perceptions of gravity and weight in Photogravity, his latest installation at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Here, photographs of pre-Columbian sculptures from the museum's Louise and Walter Arensberg Collection, mounted and backed by stands, share gallery space with photographs of Orozco's own pieces. Orozco homogenizes and juxtaposes photography and sculpture - each endowed with properties of the other - and in doing so creates unexpected visual relationships and invites dialogue between the two mediums. Published on the occasion of the exhibition in Philadelphia, this book also presents the visually unexpected, creating a colorful combination of writings and collages from the artist's notebooks, his photographs and sculptures, and the Arensbergs' pre-Columbian works."--BOOK JACKET

Jasper Johns : regrets by Christophe Cherix( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In June 2012, Jasper Johns encountered a photograph of the painter Lucian Freud reproduced in a Christie's auction catalogue. Inspired not only by the image, but by the physical qualities of the photograph itself, Johns took this motif through a succession of cross-medium permutations. He also incorporated into his art the text of a rubber stamp he had had made several years earlier to allow him to efficiently decline the myriad requests and invitations that come his way: "Regrets/Jasper Johns." But the stamp's text also calls to mind the more familiar connotations of regret, such as loss, disappointment and remorse, evoking an enigmatic sense of melancholy. Published in conjunction with an exhibition of this series of paintings, drawings and prints created over the last year and a half through an intricate combination of techniques, this publication presents each of the new works in full color. An essay by Ann Temkin, Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture, and Christophe Cherix, Chief Curator of Drawings and Prints, The Museum of Modern Art, examines the importance of process and experimentation, the cycle of dead ends and fresh starts, and the incessant interplay of materials, meaning, and representation so characteristic of Johns' career over the last 60 years."--Publisher's description
Ellsworth Kelly : Chatham series by Ann Temkin( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In celebration of Ellsworth Kelly's ninetieth birthday in May 2013, The Museum of Modern Art will present the first exhibition in 40 years of all fourteen paintings that comprise the 'Chatham' series of works the artist produced after leaving New York City for Spencetown, in upstate New York, in 1970. The series has not been exhibited in its entirety since it was presented at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, in 1972. 'The Chatham Series', published in conjunction with the exhibition, is a richly illustrated exploration of this key moment in Kelly's career. The 14 large-scale paintings he produced there all rely on a single formal concept-each is made of two joined canvases of pure monochrome color - yet the works vary in color and proportion from one to the next. An essay by Ann Temkin traces the artist's explorations of shape, color and spatiality from the early 1950 to today."--Publisher's description, Exhibition: MoMA, New York, USA (22.5.-9.9.2013)
Ileana Sonnabend : ambassador for the new by Ann Temkin( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During a career spanning half a century, Ileana Sonnabend (1914-2007) helped shape the course of postwar art in Europe and America. Both a gallerist and a noted collector, Sonnabend championed some of the most significant art movements of her time. Artists as varied as Vito Acconci, John Baldessari, Mel Bochner, Jeff Koons, Mario Merz, Robert Morris, Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol worked with Sonnabend, whose support for difficult avant-garde work was legendary. Among the many important works that Sonnabend owned is Rauschenberg's painting, Canyon (1959), which the Sonnabend family generously donated to The Museum of Modern Art in 2012. In celebration of this extraordinary gift, Ileana Sonnabend: Ambassador for the new accompanies an exhibition exploring her legendary eye through approximately 30 works presented in her eponymous galleries in Paris and New York from the early 1960s through the late 1980s. A biographical essay by Leslie Camhi, artists' recollections and individual entries on the selected works provide further reflection on Sonnabend's taste and lasting influence.
