Fernand Khnopff : portrait of Jeanne Kéfer by Michel Draguet( Book )

15 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Belgian artist, illustrator, sculptor, and photographer Fernand Khnopff (1858-1921) became a popular society portraitist in the 1880s, using elements that had served him well as an avant-garde Symbolist painter: visual realism and a mood of silence, isolation, and reverie. As in the provocative, yet hauntingly beautiful, Portrait of Jeanne Kefer that is the focus of this book, he frequently posed his models leaning against a closed door, flattening the space and resulting in a meditative, hermetically sealed image. Jeanne Kefer was the daughter of a composer-friend of the artist, and Khnopff captures the child's vulnerability to the outside world in a small gesture of her tiny thumb catching the edge of her bow." "The book places this painting in the historical context of Khnopff's times and social milieu and traces the advent of Symbolism as a literary and artistic movement. An analysis of the portrait itself is supported by an array of related paintings, details, and technical photographs. Finally, the author uses Khnopff's portraits as a taking-off point for a broader discussion of Symbolist art."--Jacket

"An extremely rich Belgian collection of Art Nouveau articles is behind the adventure leading to the conceiving of this book. Michel Draguet, in eight reference-filled chapters, guides the reader through the period between the end of the last century and the beginning of the present one, the herald of deep changes inspiring an art which, stemming from the symbolist and decadent instances, unfolds like a page of literature."--Jacket

Andres Serrano : uncensored photographs by Andres Serrano( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andres Serrano (born 1950) has photographed the homeless, Ku Klux Klansmen, corpses and feces, but he is most famous--or infamous, in some circles--for his Piss Christ (1987), showing a crucifix submerged in the artist's urine. Serrano returns again and again to scandalous or uncomfortable themes like religion, death, sex and violence, and his work prompts debate or even violent reaction, making vandalism and censorship inexorably part of the story of Serrano's art as well.Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Belgium, Andres Serrano: Uncensored Photographs presents the many faces of Serrano and his work, tracing the trajectory of his career in more than 100 photographs

Taking an approach that is equal parts anthropological and art historical, this lavishly illustrated volume offers a rare look at the art, artifacts, and culture of the Naga people, an ethnic group spanning several tribes native to northeastern India and northwestern Myanmar.

The works featured include textiles, baskets, wood carving, pottery, metalwork, jewelry, and beadwork, and make use of a wide range of materials such as glass, stone, metal, wood, shell, seeds, bone, and hair. Archival photography is used to place clothing, accessories, and ornaments within the cultural practices of the Naga
