Amazons of the avant-garde : Alexandra Exter [and others]( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some of the most outstanding exhibitions organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum have been those that have presented the art of the Russian avant-garde. In Amazons of the Avant-Garde: Alexandra Exter, Natalia Goncharova, Liubov Popova, Olga Rozanova, Varvara Stepanova, and Nadezhda Udaltsova the work o six legendary Russian women artists is poignantly explored, offering a refreshing look at this important period of art. Celebrating the vital role that each artist played in the formation of the radical art of the Russian avant-garde, the book looks at the evolution of the Russian painting from the 1900's through the early 1920's. It brings together the brilliant masterpieces of the period, including many that have not been in the West since they were created. The work of these pioneering women artists is expressed as tremendously influential in the world of the Russian avant-garde and important in capturing the Modernist as a whole
Sugimoto : portraits by Hiroshi Sugimoto( Book )

18 editions published in 2000 in German and English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto is renowned for his elegant photographic series of seascapes, theaters, museum dioramas, and Buddhist statuary. His new series presents life-size, black-and-white portraits of historical figures - Henry VIII and each of his wives, Voltaire, Benjamin Franklin, Oscar Wilde, and Emperor Hirohito, among others - photographed in wax museums, isolated against black backgrounds, and dramatically lit so as to create haunting Rembrandtesque images. The series, which also includes a 25-foot, five-panel photograph of a wax effigy of Leonardo's Last Supper, emulates the grand tradition of portraiture and recalls the wax figures' sources in famous paintings by Holbein, David, Van Dyck, and Vermeer."--Jacket

Kazimir Malevich : suprematism by Kazimir Severinovich Malevich( Book )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1915, Kazimir Malevich (1878-1935) changed the future of Modern art when his experiments in painting led the Russian avant-garde into pure abstraction. He called his innovation Suprematism - an art of pure geometric form meant to be universally comprehensible regardless of cultural or ethnic origin. His Suprematist masterpieces, including Black Square (1915) and White Square on White (1920-27), continue to inspire artists throughout the world." "Accompanying the first exhibition to focus exclusively on this defining moment in Malevich's career, Kazimir Malevich Suprematism features nearly 120 paintings, drawings, and objects, among them several recently rediscovered masterworks. In addition, the book includes previously unpublished letters, texts, and diaries, along with essays by international scholars, who shed new light on this influential figure and his devotion to the spiritual in art."--Jacket
Robert Mapplethorpe and the classical tradition : photographs and Mannerist prints by Robert Mapplethorpe( Book )

18 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through scholarly essays and sumptuous reproductions, this catalogue examines the obsessive themes of beauty, love, and classical art. The photographer Robert Mapplethorpe's relationships to sculpture - namely, the study of the human body - and the elongated, elaborate forms of Mannerist art illuminates the underlying classicism evident in the clarity and sensual potency of all his subjects, as well as their explosive energy."--Publisher's description

Gerhard Richter : eight gray by Gerhard Richter( Book )

15 editions published in 2002 in English and German and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his investigations of the nature of the constructed image and the perception of truth versus fiction, Gerhard Richter, one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, has worked in numerous styles and playfully but astutely questioned our expectations of both photography and painting. Expanding on his study of the nature of looking, Richter has also experimented with windows, mirrors, and the frame throughout his career. This series of eight gray, mirrored panels, created on the occasion of a commission from the Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin, is part of the particular aspect of his oeuvre focused on in Eight Gray: the importance of the Mirror series, projects in glass, gray monochromes, and related works."--Publisher

Gabriel Orozco : asterisms by Gabriel Orozco( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gabriel Orozco's Asterisms is a two-part sculptural and photographic installation comprising thousands of items of detritus he gathered at two sites--a coastal wildlife reserve in Baja California, Mexico, and a playing field near his home in New York City. The first component of the installation, Sandstars, draws on the voluminous amounts of waste deposited on the shores of the wildlife reserve by Pacific currents. Orozco's monumental sculptural carpet of nearly 1,200 objects is accompanied by 12 large-scale gridded photographs of the individual objects in a studio setting, organized typologically by material, color and size. An additional grid documents the landscape from which the objects were retrieved, along with incidental compositions made in situ from the castaway items. The second component, Astroturf Constellation, also explores taxonomic classification, but on a completely different scale. It comprises a collection of miniscule bits of debris--again numbering around 1,200 items--left behind by athletes and spectators in the Astroturf of a playing field in New York City. As with Sandstars, the objects are displayed alongside 13 photographic grids
