Dada : Zurich, Berlin, Hannover, Cologne, New York, Paris by Leah Dickerman( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dada includes many of the key figures in the history of modernism, such as Hans Arp, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Hannah Hoch, John Heartfield, Francis Picabla, Kurt Schwitters, and Sophie Taeuber, and introduces artists who are less well known. This book explores the variety of art-making practices that emerged between 1916 and 1924 in the movement's primary centers: Zurich, Berlin, Hannover, Cologne, New York, and Paris. Six city essays by scholars of the movement; an illustrated chronology; more than forty artists' biographies; period photographs; and extensive plate sections document a provocative and influential artistic era." "This illustrated book accompanies Dada, the most comprehensive museum exhibition of Dada art ever mounted in the United States, on view in 2006 at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and The Museum of Modern Art, New York. The exhibition was on view at the Musee national d'art moderne-Centre Pompidou in Paris in 2005"--Jacket

Max Beckmann by Max Beckmann( Book )

13 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Max Beckmann (1884-1950) is widely acknowledged as one of Germany's leading painters of the twentieth century. His work has affinities with Expressionism and, in the 1920, with Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity)." "This collaboration, an association between the Pompidou Centre, Tate Modern and The Museum of Modern Art, marks the first occasion since the 1960s that Paris, London and New York have hosted comprehensive surveys dedicated to Beckmann's work. This book, shared between Tate Modern and The Museum of Modern Art, is the first comprehensive English-language catalogue on the artist published since Beckmann's centenary retrospective in 1984. It contains new research by German, American and British scholars, using documentary material published over the past decade. There are, too, several distinctive essays by practicing artists, for whom Beckmann's contribution to art has special significance."--Jacket
Formless : a user's guide by Yve-Alain Bois( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yve-Alain Bois and Rosalind E. Krauss convincingly introduce a new constellation of concepts to our understanding of avant-garde and modernist art practices. In Formless: A User's Guide, Bois and Krauss present a rich and compelling panorama of the formless. They chart its persistence within a history of modernism that has always repressed it in the interest of privileging formal mastery, and they assess its destiny within current artistic production
Brassaï : the monograph by Brassaï( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here are Brassai's iconic scenes of nocturnal Paris with its prostitutes and thugs, its night workers, cafes, dance halls, and theaters; here are the fog-shrouded streets, monuments, and bridges; and here is the literary and artistic elite of the Parisian avant-garde, whom Brassai counted among his friends. Alongside these images, and providing a deeper understanding of his working method, are many previously unpublished contact prints and variations of familiar shots taken from a different angle, differently framed, or as part of a sequence that constitutes a veritable short story on film. Beyond these, there are examples of Brassai's nude studies and magnifications of commonplace objects, the engraved photographic plates that he called "transmutations," his drawings and sculpted pebbles, the graffiti he found so fascinating - indeed, everything to which he turned his imaginative mind throughout a long, productive life." "With the close cooperation of Mme. Gilberte Brassai, the artist's widow, and with the support of Jean-Jacques Aillagon, president of the Centre Pomidou, and of Werner Spies, director of the Musee National d'Art Moderne in Paris, Alain Sayag and Annick Lionel-Marie have succeeded in producing the definitive summary of this important oeuvre. As an extra dimension, the book includes penetrating excerpts from the writings of Brassai himself and of his friends and admirers Henry Miller, Jacques Prevert, and Roger Grenier; an interview with Gilberte Brassai and a biography compiled by her; and an extensive bibliography and list of exhibitions."--Jacket
Joan Miró, 1917-1934 by Joan Miró( Book )

15 editions published in 2004 in French and English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the English-language edition of an exhibition only at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, March-June 2004. Memorable exhibitions at the Grand Palais in 1974 and in Barcelona and New York in 1993 sought to embrace the entirely of an oeuvre that developed across more than sixty years, but the intention here is to scrutinize and document the most important years of Miro's art, his self-questioning formation and his first and finest masterpieces."--Jacket
Kandinsky by Wassily Kandinsky( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and French and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents abstract Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944). It reproduces scores of recently rediscovered paintings that had languished for decades in Soviet museums and in private collections. The author provides new details on Kandinsky's life and art, discussing his little-known experimental stage plays which strove for a synthesis of all the arts, and his friendships with Paul Klee, Arnold Schonberg and composer Thomas von Hartmann, who introduced the artist to Sufism, the mystical offshoot of Islam. Most chapters include excerpts from Kandinsky's newspaper articles, essays and unpublished letters, creating the impression of a tolerant nonconformist who saw art as inseparably linked with the higher laws of the cosmos. The reproductions provide an exciting glimpse of Kandinsky's leap into abstraction after his early absorption of folk and religious art, fauvism and neo-impressionism
Man Ray : photographs by Man Ray( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Already in 1972, the National Museum of Modern Art had a major retrospective devoted to Man Ray. Like all exhibitions held in collaboration with the artist at that time, he extensively showed his creative activity and its fascinating diversity: paintings, collages, drawings, sculptures, assemblages, etc rayographs. In relation to the photographs, the other media were there in very small numbers. The current exhibition at the Centre Pompidou proposes therefore is the complementary part of the previous. The focus is on photography by bringing together hundreds of photographs, both masterpieces of unknown, or little known, aspects of his production: portraits of Dadaists and Surrealists friends, the celebrities of intellectual and artistic Paris, the Anglo-Saxon writers, creative photography Illustrative for surrealist magazines, nudes and rayographs but also views of Paris, the photo mode and commissioned portraits. Some of these blocks, unknown in original prints, have recently been drawn and will be shown for the first time. As for painting and objects, fifty highly selected pieces will give a renewed vision of success he has achieved in various moments of his life with fresh and inventive works

Picasso, the sculptures by Werner Spies( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and German and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For years Pablo Picasso's sculptural oeuvre was one of the best-kept secrets of 20th century art. It was only through retrospectives in Paris, London and New York during the 1960's that Picasso the sculptor became known to a larger public*who discovered a complexity and variety in his sculptures that easily rivals that of his paintings and drawings. Pablo Picasso: The Sculptures is catalogue raisonna of Picasso's sculptures, a seminal work informed by conversations between the author, Picasso specialist Werner Spies, and Picasso himself. The present edition has been thoroughly revised and now includes numerous color illustrations of important pieces. In all this volume features over 740 works by the artist, ranging from miniature paper figures to constructions from metal, wood, and found objects, from folding sculptures made from tin to massive, at times monumental works. A definitive statement on Picasso's sculptural oeuvre, this book provides a key to understanding and appreciating works that, in their ingenuity and their inventiveness, still provide an inexhaustible source of inspiration for today's artists
Henri Cartier-Bresson : here and now by Henri Cartier-Bresson( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henri Cartier-Bresson's work embraced art, politics, revolution, and war. But more powerful than any of these overarching themes was his evident concern for the human individual at every social level. This lavishly illustrated monograph - published to accompany France's first major retrospective since the photographer's death in 2004 - traces Cartier-Bresson's development as a photographer, activist, journalist, and artist. In addition to some of Cartier-Bresson's best-known photographs, included here are many seldom seen or unpublished images and some rarities in color as well as black-and-white. From his earliest photographs in Paris in the 1920s and Africa in the 1930s, Cartier-Bresson's capacity to conjure coherence and harmony out of a chaotic world appears effortless and innate - a deep-centered attitude rather than a merely learned technique. His observations of the effects of poverty and revolution around the world led directly to his pioneering photojournalism and to his co-founding of Magnum Photos. He became renowned for his penetrating portraits of the most prominent figures of his time, becoming, in the words of his biographer Pierre Assouline, 'the eye of the century."--Publisher
Gabriel Orozco by Ann Temkin( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Orozco deliberately blurs the boundary between the art object and the everyday environment, situating his work in a place that merges art and reality, whether through exquisite drawings made on airplane boarding passes or sculptures composed of recovered trash. This publication examines two decades of the artist's production year by year, from 1989 through 2009. Each section is richly illustrated and includes a short text, based on interviews with the artist, that combines biographical information with a brief and focused discussion of selected works

Simón del desierto( Visual )

3 editions published in 2008 in Spanish and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tells the story of an early Christian ascetic -- modeled on Saint Simon Stylites -- who has lived atop a pillar, surrounded by a barren landscape, for six years, six months, and six days to prove his devotion to God. But the Devil, in the figure of the beautiful Silvia Pinal, huddles below, trying to tempt him down. A skeptic's vision of religious conviction, Luis Buñuel's short and sweet satire is one of his most renowned works of surrealism"--Container
