Elmer Bischoff : the ethics of paint by Susan Landauer( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elmer Bischoff (1916-1991) is generally regarded as one of the leaders among the artists in the San Francisco Bay Area who, after contributing to the local emergence of Abstract Expressionism during the 1940s and 50s, shifted the terms of their spectacularly sensual brushwork to recognizable imagery. Bill Berkson writes that if "David Park was the classicist of the founding triad of the Bay Area Figurative painters, and Richard Diebenkorn the modernist, Bischoff was the romantic." Designed to accompany a major retrospective of Bischoff's work, this volume is illustrated with duotones and color plates that faithfully capture the subtle variations in shade that characterize the painter's oeuvre. Berkson and Susan Landauer, both of whom knew Bischoff, provide the definitive view of the life, art, and teaching career of this important artist."--Jacket
Milton Avery : the late paintings by Robert Carleton Hobbs( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The painter Milton Avery is the among the most beloved of American artists. A cool modernist, he is known chiefly for his vividly colored landscapes and intimate scenes of family life. Long overshadowed by Abstract Expressionism, his art has recently begun to be reassessed and its place in the history of modernism restored." "Robert Hobbs explores the development of Avery's painting in this crucial phase and draws insightful connections between it and Wallace Stevens's innovative poetry, written during the same period. This comparison will intrigue devotees of American poetry and American art." "A 1958 essay on Avery by the renowned critic Clement Greenberg, reprinted here, places the artist in the vanguard of an art that unites abstraction and representation, American ingenuity and an international sensibility. Altogether, this book takes a many-faceted approach to the presentation of an exquisite group of artworks."--Jacket
Monks and merchants : Silk Road treasures from Northwest China Gansu and Ningxia 4th-7th century by Annette L Juliano( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stunning works in precious metals, glass, and stone--many recently excavated and virtually unknown outside China--shed new light on a pivotal epoch in Chinese history. From the 4th through 7th century, monks and merchants freely traveled along the fabled Silk Road, linking China with the west, propagating Buddhism, and purveying exotic goods and artifacts that fundamentally transformed Chinese culture and society. This sumptuous volume, the first to explore the magnificent treasures and sites of China's northwest section of the Silk Road, accompanies an exhibition at the Asia Society in New York. The text by an international team of scholars illuminates the importance of the region in this period of fertile cross-cultural exchanges between Eastern and Western Asia

Georgia O'Keeffe : circling around abstraction by Georgia O'Keeffe( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: One of America's most innovative and popular artists, Georgia O'Keeffe is rightfully celebrated as a pioneer who worked in her own style and on her own terms. Perhaps O'Keeffe's most significant contribution to art history was her unique approach to abstraction. From her groundbreaking charcoal drawings of 1915 to her final paintings from the 1970s over the course of a career spanning more than seven decades Georgia O'Keeffe consistently incorporated swirling circular forms into her compositions. Her innovative use of this motif as a means of abstraction stands in contrast to the strategies adopted by many of her peers, which tended to be Cubist-based, using straight lines and angles rather than curves and circles. Using the circle and its kin-the ellipse, the oval, the spiral, and the arcing line-O'Keeffe explored the shifting terrain between abstraction and representation, sometimes calling upon them forms to represent a mood, a reaction to a sensation, or the spiritual essence of a subject

Candida Höfer : architecture of absence by Constance W Glenn( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last thirty years, Candida Hofer has created meticulously composed images of the interiors of public and institutional spaces - spaces marked with the richness of human activity, yet largely devoid of human presence. Whether it be a photograph of a national library or a hotel lobby, Hofer's images ask us to conduct a distanced, disengaged examination through the window she has created. Seen as a collection, her rhythmically patterned images present a universe of interiors wholly constructed by human intention, unearthing patterns of order, logic, and disruption imposed on these spaces by their now absent creators and inhabitants." "Architecture of Absence examines Hofer's unique oeuvre and the relationship of her architecture work to that of the Becher circle - noted students of the Dusseldorf Art Academy's renowned professor Bernd Becher, including Thomas Ruff, Thomas Struth, Andreas Gursky, and Axel Hutte."--Jacket
Tiny : Streetwise revisited by Mary Ellen Mark( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1988, Mary Ellen Mark published a poignant document of a fiercely independent group of homeless and troubled youth living in Seattle as pimps, prostitutes, panhandlers and small-time drug dealers. Critically acclaimed, Streetwise introduced us to individuals who were not easily forgotten, including "Tiny" (Erin Blackwell)--a 13-year-old prostitute with dreams of a horse farm, diamonds and furs, and a baby of her own. Since meeting Tiny 30 years ago, Mark has continued to photograph her, creating what has become one of Mark's most significant and long-term projects. Now 43, Tiny has ten children and her life has unfolded in unexpected ways, which together speak to issues of poverty, class, race and addiction. This significantly expanded iteration of the classic monograph presents the iconic work of the first edition along with Mark's moving and intimate body of work on Tiny, most of which is previously unpublished. Texts and captions are drawn from conversations between Tiny and Mary Ellen Mark as well as Mark's husband, the filmmaker Martin Bell, who made the landmark film, Streetwise. Tiny, Streetwise Revisited provides a powerful education about one of the more complex sides of American life, as well as insight into the unique relationship sustained between artist and subject for over 30 years"--Amazon

An American in Europe : the photography collection of Baroness Jeane von Oppenheim from the Norton Museum of Art( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Can one tell the history of photography in yet another new way? If you let yourself be guided by the selection of works from the very personal collection of the Cologne-based collector Baroness Jeane von Oppenheim presented in this book, you experience the development of photography in the 20th century, not in a chronological fashion but according to the transition of portraits, landscapes, architecture, still life, fashion and film. Oppenheim gave her outstanding collection of about 700 photographs to the Norton Museum of Art in Palm Beach, Florida, in 1998. This book is focussed on unusual, atypical examples from the oeuvres of 125 seminal artists such as Berenice Abbot, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Albert Renger-Patzsch, Alexander Rodchenko and August Sander. 132 illustrations in duplex and color illustrate the aesthetic difference existing between various types of imagery, exemplifying positions from different continents, cultures, and periods. This extraordinary combination offers viewers a fresh new look into the world of photography."--Jacket

Sylvia Plimack Mangold : landscape and trees by Sylvia Plimack Mangold( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a quiet but rigorous beauty in the paintings and prints of the trees that Sylvia Plimack Mangold (born 1938) has observed in the landscape surrounding her home and studio over the last three decades. Although better known for her conceptual compositions of illusionary paintings of wooden floors and mirrors and, later, tapes and measures, Plimack Mangold acknowledges that there is no other subject that she has spent more time with than nature, which eventually led her to focus on individual trees, the subject of this publication and the exhibition it accompanies. This exceptional and varied body of work was brought together for the first time in 2012, and comprises more than 50 oil paintings, watercolors and prints from private and public collections. Landscape and Trees presents a rich survey of the artist's 30-year engagement with the landscape.0Exhibition: Norton Museum of Art, West Palm Beach, USA (9.12.2012-3.3.2013)
