"Primitivism" in 20th century art : affinity of the tribal and the modern by N.Y.) Museum of Modern Art (New York( Book )

8 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 1,585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The crucial influence of the tribal arts--especially those of Africa and Oceania--on modern painters and sculptors has long been recognized. Yet surprisingly, this book is the first comprehensive scholarly treatment of the subject in half a century, and the first ever to illustrate and discuss tribal works collected by vanguard artists. In this visually stunning and intellectually provocative work, nineteen heavily illustrated essays by fifteen scholars confront complex aesthetic, art-historical, and sociological problems posed by this dramatic chapter in the history of modern art. The long introductory essay by William Rubin, while defining the parameters of modernist primitivism, sketches the history of western attitudes toward primitive peoples and, in particular, toward their art, raising fundamental questions and correcting widespread misconceptions. Succeeding background chapters by historians of primitive art trace the arrival and dissemination of African, Oceanic, American Indian, and Eskimo art in the West. In 1906 tribal sculpture was "discovered" by twentieth century artists; these objects had suddenly become relevant because of the changes in the nature of modern art itself. The main body of the book contains a series of essays on primitivism in the works of Gauguin, the Fauves, Picasso, Brancusi, the German Expressionists, Lipchitz, Modigliani, Klee, Giacometti, Moore, the Surrealists, Abstract Expressionists. It concludes with a discussion of primitivist contemporary artists, including those involved in earthworks, shamanism, and ritual -inspired performances. More than a thousand illustrations juxtapose on the pages of these volumes specific Primitive works with those of modernist masters, exploring their underlying affinities and illuminating intricate problems of influence and rapport. The tribal works illustrated include not only a variety of masterpieces pertinent to modernist interests, but other objects vital to the history of primitivism."--Publisher's description

Robert Smithson by Robert Smithson( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This fully illustrated 280-page book accompanies the first comprehensive American retrospective of Robert Smithson's (1938-1973) complex and highly influential body of work. Perhaps best known as the creator of Spiral Jetty, a fifteen-hundred-foot rock coil dramatically situated in Utah's Great Salt Lake, Smithson also broke new ground with his films, photographs, writings, drawings, sculptures, and collages. His oeuvre defied convention, utilizing nontraditional art materials such as mirrors, maps, concrete, earth, and asphalt - in addition to language, as both a written and visual medium. Smithson's revolutionary ideas moved art beyond the walls of the museum into the landscape itself."--Jacket

Thomas Struth, 1977-2002 by Thomas Struth( Book )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and German and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Photographer Thomas Struth (b. 1954), one of the most intriguing, challenging, and gifted artists to emerge from Europe in the past two decades, has created a beautiful and distinctive body of images depicting the world - its buildings, people, society, and culture - in its present moment of perpetual change. Unlike many of his contemporaries who have investigated photography's fictional potential, Struth has adhered to a straightforward yet formally refined approach that makes his viewers become aware of their world in often entirely new ways." "This catalogue is the first to encompass Struth's entire body of work, dating from the late 1970's to the early 2000's. His early black-and-white photographs of deserted city streets, his psychologically penetrating portraits of individuals and families, his renowned "museum pictures," and his large-format color landscapes of nature and industry from around the globe are all represented in this unsurpassed collection of images. Engaging essays by well known photography and art experts chronicle Thomas Struth's career: Charles Wylie examines the development of Struth's art and places him in the context of photographic history of the last century; Maria Morris Hambourg and Douglas Eklund review the artist's aesthetic and intellectual influences and maturation; and Ann Goldstein investigates the role portraiture has played in Struth's art. This survey attests to the unmistakable importance of his photographs and his valued place in the history of photography and contemporary art."--Jacket

Pandora : women in classical Greece by Ellen D Reeder( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spotlighting superb examples of classical Greek art in the context of recent findings in anthropology, social history, psychology, classics, and classical archaeology, Pandora offers a multifaceted look at women in myth, ritual, and daily life in classical Greece. Written to accompany an international traveling exhibition organized by the Walters Art Gallery, this volume examines the imagery of classical Greek marbles, bronzes, terracottas, and vases in order to understand how women were perceived and how they lived. Pandora offers a new emphasis on myths dealing with the unmarried maiden and the difficulty of the transition to marriage and motherhood - as exemplified in the stories of Danae, Thetis, Atalanta, and Amymone. Also explored are images of containers and untamed animals as metaphors for women; rituals involving women, such as the wedding and the cult of the Little Bears at Brauron; the character and cult of goddesses; and the close association of women with textiles
A Century of modern sculpture : the Patsy and Raymond Nasher collection by Elizabeth Frank( Book )

8 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The painted sketch : American impressions from nature, 1830-1880 by Eleanor Jones Harvey( Book )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1830 and 1880, oil sketches by American landscape painters gradually emerged from the privacy of the studio as desirable and marketable works of art in their own right. Landscape painting was of prime importance in America during the mid-nineteenth century, and artists such as Thomas Cole, Frederic Edwin Church, Albert Bierstadt, and Sanford Robinson Gifford traveled to distant, often inaccessible places in search of new images. The hazards accompanying such ventures added to the public's interest in the on-the-spot sketches, which also became marketing tools for the carefully composed paintings that would later be created in a studio setting
