Donald Sultan : the theater of the object by Carter Ratcliff( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American painter, sculptor, and print maker Donald Sultan rose to prominence in the electrified atmosphere of New York's downtown art renaissance in the late 1970S and 1980s. Before the use of graffiti and post-modern figuration appeared in the galleries and art magazines, Sultan's simple iconography and complex technique of gouged, spackled, and painted tar-encrusted grids of linoleum tiles attached to Masonite captured immediate and enthusiastic attention. The works were abstract, erotic, and powerful." "Donald Sultan: The Theater of the Object is the first comprehensive monograph of the artist's distinguished 30-year career. Through the years, Sultan has become a master printmaker as well as a painter and draftsman. This book provides important examples of each medium and is divided into his abiding preoccupations with the industrial, artificial, and natural worlds, and offers insightful comparisons of the marriage of method and image. In 1987 Sultan told art critic Barbara Rose that his mission as an artist was "to haul painting into the 21st century." Now, almost a decade into that century, it is a perfect moment to review his progress. Today, Sultan's work can be found in more than fifty museums worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Art Institute of Chicago, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and the Tate Modern in London. Influenced by artists from Sasetta to Manet, Weston to Warhol, Sultan uses architectonic painting structures as the vehicle for advancing his mission."--BOOK JACKET
Matisse, Picasso, and modern art in Paris : the T. Catesby Jones collections at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the University of Virginia Art Museum by John B Ravenal( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A New York lawyer with Virginia roots, T. Catesby Jones acquired an extraordinary collection of paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures by some sixty artists working in Paris during the early twentieth century. Jones's collection of almost three hundred works, divided between two Virginia institutions after his death, is reunited here in an illustrated catalogue with a full-color checklist accompanied by entries on twenty-four of the artists. Some are the best-known figures of this crucial era (Matisse, Picasso, Braque, Masson, Lipchitz); others are now less familiar (Lurcat, Bauchant, Marcoussis). Considered together, they provide a comprehensive view of modern art in Paris up to World War II and bring Jones's legacy to a wide audience for the first time."--B & N
Artificial light : new light-based sculpture and installation art : Jennifer Allora [and others] by John B Ravenal( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pour ces artistes, la lumière -naturelle et artificielle- est le moyen de poser les questions de la perception, la mémoire, l'énergie et le pouvoir. Influencés par les pionniers de la sculpture de lumière des années 60 et 70, comme Dan Flavin, James Turrell et Bruce Nauman, ces artistes d'une nouvelle génération ont étendu l'utilisation de la lumière comme forme sculpturale pour adresser un large éventail de préoccupations. Le titre de l'exposition se réfère au fait que la lumière électrique sert de matière principale, mais il se réfère aussi aux thèmes liés au concept d'artifice, comme la technologie, la nature, la beauté et le mystère
