The Düsseldorf School of photography by Stefan Gronert( Book )

23 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The German photographic movement commonly known as the Dusseldorf School of Photography has become synonymous with artistic excellence and innovation. It began in the mid-1970s at the Kunstakademie Dusseldorf, under the instruction of the photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher, known for their comparative grids of mundane industrial buildings captured with an objective and clinical eye. This school has not only birthed some of today's most important and successful photographers, but has also had a fundamental and lasting influence on the history of the medium. The Dusseldorf School of Photography presents over 160 images in a spectacular overview of the breadth of the Dusseldorf School from the early 1970s to today. This impeccable survey is filled with superb reproductions of the best-known photographs by three generations of key Dusseldorf artists: Bernd and Hilla Becher, Laurenz Berges, Elger Esser, Andreas Gursky, Candida Hofer, Axel Hutte, Simone Nieweg, Thomas Ruff, Jorg Sasse, Thomas Struth and Petra Wunderlich. With a scholarly text, extensive artist bios and a plate section dedicated to each of these artists, The Dusseldorf School of Photography offers the first comprehensive assessment of this important photographic movement-one that dominates the salesrooms and museums of our times."--Publisher description
Gerhard Richter, editions 1965-2004 : catalogue raisonné by Gerhard Richter( Book )

15 editions published in 2004 in English and German and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gerard Richter, who was born in Dresden in 1932, is undoubtedly one of the most outstanding and best-known German artists alive today. Yet, although his paintings are widely exhibited, his editions have attracted relatively little public attention." "This catalogue raisonne, compiled through intensive research over a period of many years by art historian Hubertus Butin, Richter's former assistant, documents the full range of graphic and photographic editions as well as the artist's books, multiples, and editions in oil realized by the artist between 1965 and 2004. All works are presented in four-color illustrations for the first time, and three essays shed new light on the significance of Richter's editions within his oeuvre." "In the editions, Richter has developed an almost encyclopedic system of pictorial practice, subjecting artistic media, genres, and historical paradigms to wide-ranging analytical reflection. In this process, he channels his deliberations on the changing cultural meanings of image and representation into a critical examination of the complex conditions and possibilities of artistic production in this age."--Jacket
Gerhard Richter : portraits by Stefan Gronert( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and German and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Already icons of the modern era, paintings such as Herr Heyde, 48 Portraits, Ema (Nude on a Staircase), Family at the Sea, Small Bathers, Reader, Moritz, and Betty prove the great importance of the portrait in Gerhard Richter's oeuvre. In an informative essay, Stefan Gronert follows the development of this genre in the artist's work, starting with the blurred black-and-white pictures of the 1960s and moving on to the more recent colorful panels. This book demonstrates how Richter pursues the theme of the portrait in his various types of work, as well as in all of the visual genres in which he works: painting, prints, drawing, photography, and film." "During research, previously unknown portraits came to light and are published in this monograph for the first time. Some of them are presented in an essay by Hubertus Butin, who devotes himself to Richter's portrait photography of the 1960s."--Jacket

Gerhard Richter : editions 1965-2013 by Gerhard Richter( Book )

After his paintings, Gerhard Richter's editions are now also attracting increasing interest from around the world.

Informative essays and numerous illustrations make it clear that the editions are an independent, major part of Richter's oeuvre. They offer the artist a chance to reach a larger audience while at the same time he can explore creative possibilities in especially diverse and experimental ways

Sigmar Polke : Girlfriends by Stefan Gronert( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Freundinnen (Girlfriends, 1965/66), Sigmar Polke took found imagery of two women and offered a compelling statement about the use, production and social function of pictures. Adopting the raster dots found in mass-media reproductions, Polke's Girlfriends foregrounds a prolific body of work crossing a broad range of media -- photography, painting, print-making, sculpture and film -- and styles varying from Abstract Expressionism to Pop. In this book, Stefan Gronert approaches Girlfriends through its technical detail and historical context, analysing Polke's relationship to his tutors, peers and friends -- especially Gerhard Richter. Considering such topics as the use of photographed material, the raster technique and the feminist discourse of Polke's work, including some material that has not previously been translated into English
Jeff Wall : specific pictures by Stefan Gronert( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in German and English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die photographischen Arbeiten des kanadischen Künstlers Jeff Wall (geb. 1946) inszenierte, scheinbar alltägliche Szenarien, die er in grossformatigen Leuchtkästen präsentiert haben Kunsthistoriker und Kritiker immer wieder beschäftigt. Stefan Gronert, Kurator für Gegenwartskunst am Kunstmuseum Bonn, geht in diesem Band den vielschichtigen Bezügen zur Geschichte der Malerei nach, die Jeff Wall, selbst Kunsthistoriker, in sein Werk integriert. 'The Thinker' (1986) etwa verweist schon im Titel auf Rodin; Wall versetzt die Figur in der typischen Pose des Denkers jedoch in eine grossstädtische Gegenwart und führt mit dem Dolch im Rücken des Protagonisten ein groteskes Element ein, das wiederum auf Dürer zurückgeht. Anhand von 17 ausgewählten Beispielen aus den späten 1970er Jahren bis heute verfolgt Gronert die komplexen Strategien der Aneignung und Neuinterpretation berühmter Vorbilder aus der Kunstgeschichte, die Jeff Walls Werke so zeitlos zeitgenössisch erscheinen lassen

Larry Sultan by Larry Sultan( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of Californian photographer Larry Sultan (1946-2009) has become known as one of the central oeuvres of post-conceptual photography. Since 1972, he and Los Angeles-based photographer Mike Mandel have collaborated on numerous projects, including the controversial photo-essay Evidence. This series consists of revealing images plucked from government and corporate archives, such as police and fire departments, aerospace and engineering firms. Later on, in 2004, Sultan published his provocative series The Valley, an exposé of the adult film industry, in which the artist focused on the suburban neighborhoods and middle-class family homes that serve as pornographic sets. Including images from these series and more, this publication gives a comprehensive overview of Sultan's career

Daniel Roth : Car Gwyllt by Daniel Roth( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in German and English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bound as a leatherette notebook, Car Gwyllt introduces an important German artist. Roth's installations attempt a destabilization of rational order through a range of media - drawings, objects, photographs, texts and both documentary and fictional elements - that combine to spin strange narratives between objects, confounding routine taxonomy."--BOOK JACKET

Franz Ackermann : Kunstmuseum Bonn by Franz Ackermann( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The predominantly double-paged photographs in this landscape format catalogue admirably reproduce both the explosive exuberance of colour, as well as the intelligent interplay of the wall paintings, which have been combined with filigree drawings and brightly painted objects in five alternating exhibition rooms. In these wall paintings, Franz Ackermann carries to extremes - and in virtuoso manner - the methodological sampling of his individual images and raster garnered on his travels. This exhibition has already been celebrated as the pinnacle of an illustrious career, to which this recent book most impressively attests. Exhibition: Kunstmuseum Bonn, 17 December 2009 - 21 February 2010
