Seeing Rothko by Mark Rothko( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume explores the profound and varied responses elicited by Russian-born American painter Mark Rothko's (1903-1970) most compelling creations. Rothko was classified as an abstract expressionist, although he himself rejected this label, and even resisted classification as an "abstract painter". Throughout his career, Rothko was concerned with what other people experienced when they looked at his canvases. As his work shifted from figurative imagery to luminous fields of color, his concern expanded to the setting in which his paintings were exhibited. In a series of analytic, personal, and even poetic essays by contemporary scholars, Rothko's works are analyzed. This volume also reproduces a "Scribble Book," in which Rothko jotted down his ideas on teaching art to children, and a sketchbook, both dating to the early years of the artist's career

Overdrive : L.A. constructs the future, 1940-1990( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1940 to 1990, Los Angeles rapidly evolved into one of the most populous and influential industrial, economic, and creative capitals in the world. During this era, the region was transformed into a laboratory for cutting-edge architecture. This book examines these experiments and their impact on modern design, reframes the perceptions of Los Angeles's dynamic built environment, and amplifies the exploration of the city's vibrant architectural legacy. The drawings, models, and images highlighted in the 'Overdrive' exhibition and catalogue reveal the complex and often underappreciated facets of Los Angeles and illustrate how the metropolis became an internationally recognized destination with a unique design vocabulary, canonical landmarks, and a coveted lifestyle. This investigation builds upon the groundbreaking work of generations of historians, theorists, curators, critics, and activists who have researched and expounded upon the development of Los Angeles. 0Exhibition: Getty Museum, Los Angeles, USA (9.4.-21.7.2013)
Nothing but the clouds unchanged : artists in World War I( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much of how World War I is understood today is rooted in the artistic depictions of the brutal violence and considerable destruction that marked the conflict. Nothing but the Clouds Unchanged examines how the physical and psychological devastation of the war altered the course of twentieth-century artistic modernism. Following the lives and works of fourteen artists before, during, and after the war, this book demonstrates how the conflict and the resulting trauma actively shaped artistic production. Featured artists include Georges Braque, Carlo Carrà, Otto Dix, Max Ernst, George Grosz, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Oskar Kokoschka, Käthe Kollwitz, Fernand Léger, Wyndham Lewis, André Masson, László Moholy-Nagy, Paul Nash, and Oskar Schlemmer. Materials from the Getty Research Institute's special collections - including letters, popular journals, posters, sketches, propaganda, books, and photographs - situate the works of the artists within the historical context, both personal and cultural, in which they were created.--Publisher
Printing the grand manner : Charles Le Brun and monumental prints in the age of Louis XIV by Louis Marchesano( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Style in the technical and tectonic arts, or, Practical aesthetics by Gottfried Semper( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The enduring influence of the architect Gottfried Semper (1803-79) derives less from his monumental buildings in Dresden, Zurich, and Vienna than from his Style in the Technical and Tectonic Arts (1860-63). Semper's landmark survey of the motives giving rise to the technical arts (textiles, ceramics, carpentry, masonry) explores the symbolic and material preconditions of style. An extended inquiry into the inner principles of artistic form, this work radically altered the intellectual field for aesthetics and art history and stands as a vital document in the consolidation of modern architectural theory."--Jacket
The fragment : an incomplete history( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The universe may well have begun with an immense act of fragmentation, "the big bang," that sent particles flying in all directions to perform spectacular acts of creation and destruction. The fragment, volatile and unpredictable, is not simply a static part of a once-whole thing but itself something in motion. Drawing upon art history, archaeology, literature, numismatics, philosophy, and film, this book explores the significance of the fragment and addresses the powerful drives that have impelled it into the cultural mainstream."--BOOK JACKET

Walls of Algiers : narratives of the city through text and image by Zeynep Çelik( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walls of Algiers examines the historical processes that transformed Ottoman Algiers, the "Bulwark of Islam," into "Alger la blanche," the colonial urban showpiece - and, after the outbreak of revolution in 1954 - counter-model of France's global empire. In this volume, the city of Algiers serves as a case study for the analysis of the proactive and reactive social, political, technical, and artistic forces that generate a city's form. Visual sources - prints, photographs, paintings, architectural drawings, urban designs, and film - are treated as primary evidence that complements and even challenges textual documents. -- Publisher description

Chatting with Henri Matisse : the lost 1941 interview by Henri Matisse( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1941 the Swiss art critic Pierre Courthion interviewed Henri Matisse while the artist was in bed recovering from a serious operation. After months of complicated discussions between them, and just weeks before the book was to come out - the artist even had approved the cover design - Matisse suddenly refused its publication. Taken from a typescript of the interview which resides at the Getty Research Institute, this rich conversation (conducted during the Nazi occupation of France) is published for the first time in this volume, where it appears both in English translation and in the original French version. Matisse unravels memories of his youth and his life as a bohemian student in Gustave Moreau's atelier. He recounts his experience with collectors, including Alfred Barnes. He discusses fame, writers, musicians, politicians, and, most fascinatingly, his travels. With a preface by Claude Duthuit, Matisse's grandson, Chatting with Henri Matisse contains a preface by and essays by Yve-Alain Bois and Laurence Bertrand Dorleac. The book also includes unpublished correspondence and other original documents related to Courthion's interview and abounds with details about avant-garde life, tactics, and artistic creativity in the first half of the twentieth century
