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

13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,084 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 )

21 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and Chinese and held by 924 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 )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 884 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 )

14 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 549 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

Robert Gober : the heart Is not a metaphor by Hilton Als( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Gober (born 1954) rose to prominence in the mid-1980s and was quickly acknowledged as one of the most significant artists of his generation. Initially, he made deceptively simple sculptures of everyday objects such as sinks, playpens, beds, and doors. In the 1990s, he began creating theatrical, room-sized environments. His formal intelligence is matched by a penetrating reading of his socio-political context and his objects and installations are among the most psychologically charged artworks of recent decades. Published in conjunction with the first large-scale surveyof Gober's career in the United States and prepared in close collaboration with the artist, this book traces the development of a remarkable oeuvre, highlighting themes and motifs that emerged in the early 1980s and continue to inform Gober's work today

Ellsworth Kelly : Chatham series by Ann Temkin( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 188 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)
Jasper Johns by Isabelle Loring Wallace( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 185 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
Claude Monet : Water lilies by Ann Temkin( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Claude Monet (1840-1926) devoted the last 25 years of his career to paintings of the Japanese-style pond and gardens of his house in Giverny, France. Two of these luminous panels - Water Lilies (1914-26), a mural-sized triptych, and Water Lilies (1914-26), a single canvas - are among the most beloved works in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. This lively volume recounts the history of Monet's Water Lilies at the Museum - including the destruction of two works in a fire in 1958 - and underscores the resonance of these paintings with the art and artists of the last half-century
