Seeing Rothko by Mark Rothko( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 463 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
China on paper : European and Chinese works from the late sixteenth to the early nineteenth century by Getty Research Institute( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The striking illustrated books, maps, and prints featured in China on Paper are some of the most notable among the printed works produced at the dawn of the era of global trade to present China to Europe and bring Western science, religion, and art to China. From a Chinese translation of the rosary to French editions of Confucian classics, from a monumental map of the world to magnificent engravings of the European pavilions built by Jesuits at the behest of the Qianlong emperorthese works on paper reveal a compelling and largely hidden history of mutual curiosity and fruitful collaboration at a time when few people traveled far from home

Overdrive : L.A. constructs the future, 1940-1990 by Wim de Wit( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 364 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)
Dilettanti : the antic and the antique in eighteenth-century England by Bruce Redford( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bruce Redford re-creates the vibrant culture of connoisseurship in Enlightenment England by investigating the multifaceted activities and achievements of the Society of Dilettanti. Elegantly and wittily he dissects the British connoisseurs whose expeditions, collections, and publications laid the groundwork for the Neoclassical revival and for the scholarly study of Graeco-Roman antiquity"--Back cover
The life & the work : art and biography by Getty Research Institute( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is often assumed that reading about the lives of artists enhances our understanding of their work--and that their work reveals something about them--but the relationship between biography and art is rarely straightforward. In The Life and the Work, art historians Thomas Crow, Charles Harrison, Rosalind Krauss, Debora Silverman, Paul Smith, and Robert Williams address this fundamental if convoluted relationship. Looking to such figures as Andy Warhol, Bob Dylan, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cézanne, Leonardo da Vinci, and the artists associated with the name Art & Language, the volume's authors have written a set of provocative essays that explore how an artist's life and art are intertwined
Introduction to metadata : pathways to digital information by Murtha Baca( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Metadata, literally "data about data," provides a means of indexing, accessing, preserving, and discovering digital resources. The volume of digital information available over electronic networks has created a pressing need for standards that assist in locating, retrieving, and managing this vast and complex universe of information." "This revised edition of Introduction to Metadata, first published in 1998 and updated in an online version in 2000, provides an overview of metadata: its types, roles, and characteristics; a discussion of metadata as it relates to resources on the Web; a description of methods, tools, standards, and protocols that can be used to publish and disseminate digital collections; and a handy glossary." "Newly added to this edition are an essay on the importance of standards-based rights metadata to the activities of cultural institutions; a section entitled "Practical Principles for Metadata Creation and Maintenance"; and the latest information on metadata harvesting and the role of Google and other commercial search engines in the rapidly evolving field of digital libraries."--Jacket
Robert Mapplethorpe : the archive by Frances Terpak( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication will provide an overview of the most extensive collection of primary material existing on Robert Mapplethorpe's entire practice, including the work he produced before turning to photography. This volume will focus on examples of etchings, drawings, collages, paintings, sculpture, commercial work, personal collections, as well as intimate dialogues among friends, colleagues, and business associates. In addition, the book will provide insight into Mapplethorpe's identity as a gay man and the ways his art pushed against the limits of censorship and conformity. This publication is intended to be a 'signal contribution to our understanding of one of the key figures in late-twentieth-century photography and cultural politics.'"--Publisher's description
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 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reproductive printmaking was not a second-rate exercise; engravers were highly trained and imaginative artists who developed their own style. Le Brun eagerly controlled the dissemination of engravings produced using his original concepts and knew exactly to whom he would commit his ideas, frequently preferring the mixed etching and engraving technique of Gerard Audran, for example, to the linear rigor of Gerard Edelinck. Printing the Grand Manner--a beautifully designed, large format book filled with detailed illustrations of the prints allows readers to closely examine the "handwriting" of each engraver, leading to a rich understanding of their unique artistic gifts
Man Ray : writings on art by Man Ray( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Man Ray (1890-1976) was a pioneer of the Dada movement in the United States and France and a central protagonist of Surrealism. Today he is one of the best-known American artists of the twentieth century, celebrated above all for his innovative and often seductively glamorous photography. Surprisingly, given Man Ray's key role in the history of early-twentieth-century Modernism, a comprehensive collection of his writings on art has not been published in English until now. Man Ray: Writings on Art fills a conspicuous gap in scholarship on the artist and his period. It brings together his most significant writings, many of them published here for the first time. These occasionally quixotic texts, which include artist books, essays, interviews, letters, and visual poems, reveal the incredible scale of the artist's output and the remarkable continuity of his aesthetic and political beliefs. This volume offers a long overdue vision of Man Ray as someone who used words both as a creative medium and as a means of articulating ideas about the nature and value of art. With richly reproduced illustrations, it provides powerful insight not only to scholars of art history and academics, but also to working artists and those who count themselves as Man Ray fans."--ECIP data view
The fragment : an incomplete history( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 269 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."--Jacket
Style in the technical and tectonic arts, or, Practical aesthetics by Gottfried Semper( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 268 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
Harry Smith : the avant-garde in the American vernacular( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the spring of 2001, the Getty Research Institute conducted a two-day symposium on the work and legacy of Harry Smith. The symposium featured academic papers, multimedia presentations, as well as a showing of Harry Smith's films and a musical performance inspired by the Anthology of American Folk Music. Organizers include Thomas Crow, Karen Stokes, Andrew Perchuk and Rani Singh
A kingdom of images : French prints in the age of Louis XIV, 1660-1715 by Peter Fuhring( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book includes a rich and fascinating consideration of the golden age of French printmaking. Once considered the golden age of French printmaking, Louis XIV's reign saw Paris become a powerhouse of print production. During this time, the king aimed to make fine and decorative arts into signs of French taste and skill and, by extension, into markers of his imperialist glory. Prints were ideal for achieving these goals; reproducible and transportable, they fueled the sophisticated propaganda machine circulating images of Louis as both a man of war and a man of culture. This richly illustrated catalogue features more than one hundred prints from the Getty Research Institute and the Bibliotheque nationale de France in Paris, whose print collection Louis XIV established in 1667. An esteemed international group of contributors investigates the ways that cultural policies affected printmaking; explains what constitutes a print; describes how one became a printmaker; studies how prints were collected; and considers their reception in the ensuing centuries. 0Exhibition: Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles, USA (18.06-06.09.2015) / Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, France (02.11.2015-31.01.2016)

Making a prince's museum : drawings for the late-eighteenth-century redecoration of the Villa Borghese by Carole Paul( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The architect Antonio Asprucci integrated richly ornamented surfaces, ancient sculpture, and elaborate ceiling paintings across the rooms of the Villa Borghese's Casino to create a unified celebration of the Borghese family, from its legendary ancestors to the newly born heir. Making a Prince's Museum documents the Getty Research Institute's group of drawings for this inventive decorative program and explains the renovated Casino's pivotal role in the historic transition from the semiprivate princely collection to the modern public museum."--Jacket
Display & art history : the Düsseldorf gallery and its catalogue by Thomas W Gaehtgens( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This richly illustrated book examines the making of one of the earliest modern catalogues -- La galerie électorale de Dusseldorff. Published in 1778, the revolutionary two-volume publication showcases one of the most important European painting collections of the eighteenth century, reflecting a pivotal moment in the history of art as well as the history of the art museum. In two essays, the authors analyze the process by which the catalogue was produced and shed light on the historical and cultural context that gave rise to an innovative and didactic way of displaying paintings -- and, by extension, to art history as a discipline. The volume accompanies an exhibition of the same name to be held at the Getty Research Institute from May 31 to August 21, 2011"--Publisher's description
