Modern masters, Manet to Matisse by William S Lieberman( Book )

14 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modern Masters: Manet to Matisse, originally selected for two showings in Australia, was made possible by the generous support of Alcoa Foundation. The exhibition was presented in Sydney and Melbourne under the auspices of The Museum of Modern Art's International Council and with the assistance of the Australia Council and a special indemnity for insurance voted by the Commonwealth of Australia. Last spring, during the two four-week showings in Sydney and Melbourne, the exhibition was seen by more than 400,000 visitors. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the continent's largest daily newspaper, Modern Masters "is quite simply, the most important exhibition ever to visit Australia.... Profound thanks." -- Excerpt from Press Release (see link)

Sidney Nolan by Sidney Nolan( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The speed at which Sidney Nolan worked, and the expansiveness of his production, has always presented something of a dilemma for the retrospective defining of his genius. John Olsen once described Nolan as having a wild eye, by which he was able to glimpse a motif with the instantaneousness of a lens shutter, spawning a bewildering plethora of images, from ephemeral sketches to large-scale compositions, many of which have become indelible icons of 20th century Australian art. This retrospective, consisting of approximately 116 paintings, will be presented in chronological order, underlining the evolution of Nolans vision from its genesis in St Kilda during the late 1930s to the United Kingdom half a century later

Andy Warhol, Ai Weiwei by Andy Warhol Museum( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andy Warhol (1928-1987) and Ai Weiwei (b. 1957) are two of the most internationally renowned artists of the past 100 years, famous not only for their artwork but also for influencing the culture of their time. This exciting book is the first to consider the work of these artists alongside one another, in dialogue and in correspondence, to explore the artists' meticulous observations of modern and contemporary art, life, and politics. Andy Warhol's investigation of consumer society, fame, and celebrity offers thought-provoking points of connection with Ai Weiwei's interrogation of the relationship between tradition and modernity, the role of the individual to the state, questions of human rights, and the value of freedom of expression. Parallels also exist between the ways in which each artist transformed the understanding of artistic value and studio production, and redefined the role of the artist-as impresario, cultural producer, activist, and brand. Alongside beautifully reproduced images by both artists-including works by Ai Weiwei published here for the first time-are illuminating essays by an international team of art experts, curators, and scholars that survey the scope of the artists' careers and interpret the significant impact of Andy Warhol and Ai Weiwei on modern art and contemporary life. This deluxe, collectible catalogue is available in three different, limited-edition colors."--Publisher's website

The mad square : modernity in German art 1910-37( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The mad square: modernity in German art 1910-37 explores three decades of German modernism, leading up to and following the turbulent Weimar Republic. From the 1910s until the late 1930s, Berlin and other German cities were vibrant centres of creativity and innovation from which avant-garde art movements blossomed: Expressionism, Dada, Constructivism, Bauhas and New Objectivity. The movements were linked by artists' shared interest in radical exprerimentation across all areas of the visual arts including painting, sculpture, graphic art, photography, film and the decorative arts. Over 200 works by leading artists of the period--including Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, John Heartfield, Hannah Hoch, Karl Hubbuch, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Kathe Kollwitz, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, August Sander, Christian Schad, Rudolf Schlichter and Kurt Schwitters--reveal the fascinating and complex ways in which artists responded to the forces of modernity and their passionate engagement with contemporary society, culture and politics."--Publisher description

Van Gogh and the seasons by Vincent van Gogh( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The changing seasons captivated Vincent van Gogh (1853-90), who saw in their unending cycle the majesty of nature and the existence of a higher force. Van Gogh and the Seasons is the first book to explore this central aspect of van Gogh's life and work. Van Gogh often linked the seasons to rural life and labor as men and women worked the land throughout the year. From his depictions of peasants and sowers to winter gardens, riverbanks, orchards, and harvests, he painted scenes that richly evoke the sensory pleasures and deprivations particular to each season. This stunning book brings to life the locales that defined his tumultuous career, from Arles, where he experienced his most crucial period of creativity, to Auvers-sur-Oise, where he committed suicide. It looks at van Gogh's interpretation of nature, the religious implications of the seasons in the era in which he lived, and how his art was perceived against the backdrop of various symbolist factions, antimaterialist debates, and esoteric beliefs in fin de siècle Paris. The book also features revealing extracts from the artist's correspondence and artworks from his own collection that provide essential context to the themes in his work."
Unexpected pleasures : the art and design of contemporary jewellery by Susan Cohn( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent decades, contemporary jewelry has transcended its role of adornment to challenge traditional meanings and become a signifier of new identities. Working in traditional mediums of gold and precious stones as well as with innovative materials, designers and artists are pushing the boundaries of the craft into the worlds of contemporary art, design, and fashion. This innovative book focuses on the historical precedents for art jewelry with works by artists such as Alexander Calder and Meret Oppenheim; traditional jewelry forms that have been transformed formally or materially to become contemporary works of art; jewelry as fashion accessories, with works designed for catwalk presentations by Martin Margiela and Alexander McQueen; and jewelry designs and their relationship with the body, including industrial designs such as the Sony Walkman and the iPod. Unexpected Pleasures explores how jewelry reflects changing technologies, methods, and material values and at the same time celebrates the individual wearer
