Basquiat by Jean-Michel Basquiat( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and French and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Brooklyn in 1960, Jean-Michel Basquiat lived to the age of only twenty-seven. His meteoric career as an artist had lasted no more than eight years. The one-time teenage runaway and high-school dropout was first included in a group exhibition in 1980, and almost immediately knew considerable success, enjoying his first solo exhibition just two years later. Basquiat quickly became a notable figure on the international art scene, mixing with dealers and artists. Among these was Andy Warhol, with whom he established a close working relationship." "Borrowing from graffiti and street imagery, cartoons, mythology and religious symbolism, Basquiat's drawings and paintings explore issues of race and identity, providing social commentary that is both shrewdly observed and biting. Characterized by their intensely personal nature and the raw, almost aggressive handling of paint, these works have an enduring power to move and to confound." "Viewing the heady world of the 1980s art scene from the beginning of a new century, we are able to look at Basquiat's achievements with increasing objectivity. Rather than explore his persona, this book aims to demonstrate the lasting quality of Basquiat's work itself, as well as its uniqueness within modern art. It strives not only to reevaluate his principal works, but also to explain Basquiat's continuing interest as a major painter."--BOOK JACKET

Monet and the Mediterranean by Joachim Pissarro( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First invited by Pierre-Auguste Renoir to the Italian Riviera in 1883, Monet over the next decades crafted several magnificent series of works, remarkably different from the paintings that had established his reputation in the North. Here, assembled for the first time in its entirety, is the audaciously colorful group of works that he executed on the Italian and French Rivieras in 1884 and 1888, and in Venice in 1908. Arresting in their stunning color, dazzling light effects, and the sheer beauty of the land and the sea they depict, these paintings address in a new language the artist's ability to stretch his own pictorial boundaries. Now available in paperback, this new look at Monet accompanied the highly successful exhibition at the Kimbell Art Museum and the Brooklyn Museum in 1997

6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vital forms : American art and design in the atomic age, 1940-1960 by Brooke Kamin Rapaport( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the TWA Terminal to Cadillac tail fins to paintings by Willem de Kooning and Mark Rothko, 1940 to 1960 was a groundbreaking period for the arts in America. World War II ushered in an era of unprecedented destruction and the frightening promise of atomic power, and artists and designers responded with creations that emphasized the human body and living forms - reconfiguring what was now imperiled." "This illustrated volume, published on the occasion of a major exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, presents the work of artists, architects, and designers alongside historical photographs and period advertisements. The essays in Vital Forms: American Art and Design in the Atomic Age, 1940-1960 examine fine art and commercial design of the 1940s and 1950s from an interdisciplinary perspective."--Jacket
Eastman Johnson : painting America by Teresa A Carbone( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most important painters of the 19th century, Eastman Johnson (1824-1906) produced a number of canvases that now stand as icons of American art. Works like his Negro Life at the South (1859), Fiddling His Way (1866). Not at Home (ca. 1873), and The Cranberry Harvest, Island of Nantucket (1880) are remarkable both for their artistic originality and for what they suggest about American culture of the period." "This comprehensive volume accompanies the first major museum retrospective devoted to Johnson in more than twenty-five years. Eastman Johnson: Painting America reproduces in color 104 works by Johnson along with 108 black-and-white comparative illustrations, making it the most complete source of reproductions of the artist's work."

"Bierstadt was the great recorder of the American western landscape.

This magnificent volume provides a full appreciation of his talent as an artist."--Amazon
The dinner party : from creation to preservation by Judy Chicago( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Judy Chicago's internationally acclaimed installation The Dinner Party is a monumental work of art conceived as a symbolic history of women in Western civilization. Strategically countering the traditional erasure of women's achievements, this epic work honors 1038 iconic, mythical, archetypal, and historical women. This, the most definitive book to be published on Chicago's masterwork, reveals the visual and intellectual scope of the installation more fully than ever before, supported by new photography, documentary images, and the artist's expanded research into the history of the women represented."--BOOK JACKET
