Hans Holbein the Younger : the Basel years, 1515-1532 by Hans Holbein( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in German and English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contains nearly the entire creative output of Hans Holbein the Younger's Basel period, i.e. the productive and innovative years between 1515 and 1532. In contrast to his later work in England, where he was active primarily as a portraitist and a designer at court, the Basel years were varied and multifaceted." "This publication also includes a series of essays by distinguished Holbein scholars. These cover Holbein's artistic development, analyze his graphic works, shed light on his religious panel paintings and focus on individual works and work complexes such as the woodcut series of the Images of Death. Holbein's artistic career, his patrons and his relationship to antique and contemporary art theory are also discussed."--Jacket

Kandinsky : the path to abstraction by Wassily Kandinsky( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in German and English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wassily Kandinsky (18661944) pioneered abstract art and is a key figure in the history of modernism. This groundbreaking, fully illustrated study of Kandinsky's formative years follows his move from figurative painting to abstraction. Inspired in his early years by folklore scenes from Russia and the heightened colors of the landscape of southern Germany, he want on to co-found the Expressionist "Blaue Reiter" (Blue Rider) group of painters with Gabriele M]nter, Alexej Jawlensky, and Franz Marc. Gradually he stripped away the descriptive detail in his painting, hiding visual imagery behind fields of bright color encompassed by strong lines. He felt that what he had discovered was a path to a new spiritual reality, more akin to music than the physical world

Jasper Johns : an allegory of painting, 1955-1965 by Jeffrey S Weiss( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume was published to accompany an exhibition of the works of American contemporary artist who works primarily in painting and printmaking, Jasper Johns (b. 1930). In the late 1950's, Johns emerged as force in the American art scene. His richly worked paintings of maps, flags, and targets led the artistic community away from Abstract Expressionism toward a new emphasis on the concrete. Johns laid the groundwork for both Pop Art and Minimalism. The exhibition of works depicted in this book was held at the National Gallery in Washington, concentrating on the pivotal decade 1955-1965 when Johns produced his most famous works. Alongside the full color reproductions of Johns' works are analysis of various diverse aspects of these early years of his career that established him as one of the great figures in modern art and stimulated much in art created by others

Andreas Gursky by Andreas Gursky( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in German and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Famed worldwide for his epically proportioned photographs, Andreas Gursky is one of very few contemporary artists able to represent cultures of excessive information--which he does through images of supermarket wares, crowds, trash, architecture and nature. The extreme detail of Gursky's final image--achieved by digital restructuring--produces a vertiginous effect on the viewer, as it oscillates between total representation and total abstraction. It could be said that Gursky updates the eighteenth-century sublime for our times. This publication surveys the artist's most recent creations, on display at the renowned Kunstmuseum Basel throughout the winter of 2007/2008. Two new groups of works in particular, one on Formula 1 races and the other on the famous Arirang Festival (a closely choreographed mass spectacle in North Korea's capital of Pyongyang), are gathered here."--Publisher description
Donald Judd by Donald Judd( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in German and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning as a critic and painter, Donald Judd moved into three dimensions in the early 1960s, with box-like structures arranged on the gallery floor or mounted on the wall. Initially constructed by hand, his sculptures were later industrially manufactured in such materials as galvanised iron, steel, Plexiglas and plywood. His use of brightly hued lacquers, vibrant colours and polished metals ran counter to the public's understanding of what 'minimalist' sculpture should look like." "The authors explore the conflicts between previous critical interpretations of Judd and his own philosophical, political and moral understanding of his work. They also examine the importance of colour and new man-made materials in Judd's work. The inclusion of a section on Judd's own permanent installations at the remote town of Marfa, Texas, a full chronology and a major essay by the artist on his own use of colour, completes a comprehensive survey of this compelling artist."--Jacket
