Women impressionists( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a comprehensive introduction to the works of four women Impressionists: Berthe Morisot, a key protagonist of the Impressionist movement; Mary Cassatt, who had her own special role to play in the movement and was held in high esteem by fellow painter Edgar Degas; Eva Gonzales, a gifted artist and Edouard Manet's only student; and Marie Bracquemond, who abandoned painting in the interests of marital harmony." "This superbly illustrated book also contains essays by a number of writers, who besides providing a knowledgeable introduction to these four women painters, also succeed in conveying to us the context in which they worked."--Jacket

Julian Schnabel : Malerei = paintings 1978-2003 by Julian Schnabel( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in German and English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Julian Schnabel, who was born in 1951 in Brooklyn, New York, was among the young artists who were celebrated enthusiastically in the eighties for having helped revive painting, a genre which had been declared dead. His highly expressive large-format paintings soon made him a star of Neo-Expressive painting. Schnabel often uses unusual supports for his paintings - such as used army tarpaulins, porcelain plates, Mexican pottery, or animal skins - and his experimentation with materials is reflected in his painting as well. His works, which unite oil painting and collage, fluctuate between abstract and figurative, and are sometimes dominated by letters or words. This book presents sixty-five works from the past twenty-five years in full-page or double-page color illustrations. Photographs by Schnabel himself provide a look at the painter's opulent surroundings in his house and studio. The publication is completed by a detailed biography and essays by prominent authors."--Jacket

Gustave Caillebotte : an impressionist and photography by Karin Sagner( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The paintings of Gustave Caillebotte depict striking Parisian street scenes, from Boulevard Haussmann and The Bridge of Europe looking out onto the Gare Saint-Lazare to Caillebotte's best-known work, Paris Street, Rainy Day, which hangs in Chicago's Art Institute today. Caillebotte has long been acknowledged as an important painter--and munificent patron--of the French impressionist movement. Yet his paintings, in their near-photographic precision, stand apart from the works of Renoir and Monet in important ways. Gustave Caillebotte: An Impressionist and Photography sets out to explore the development of the artist's distinctive style. Though there is no evidence that Caillebotte practiced photography, he took an early interest in the art form, influenced perhaps by his brother, the photographer Martial Caillebotte. As a result, Gustave Caillebotte's paintings show an emphasis on realism and often take on the composition and perspective of a photograph as well, with figures toward the center in sharp focus, while those in the foreground or background remain indistinct. Karin Sagner and Max Hollein have carefully chosen from among Caillebotte's works a selection of paintings that exemplify this characteristic of the artist's style. They are presented here alongside critical essays and works by photographers who were Caillebotte's contemporaries and shared an affinity for documenting the nineteenth-century French capital, including André Kertész, Wols and László Moholy-Nagy, Édouard Baldus, Charles Marville, and Eugène Atget. While there have been many studies of Caillebotte's work, this is the first book to publish his paintings side-by-side with a selection of early photographs taken between 1850 and 1930. Together, they establish Caillebotte as the pioneer of a radically modern photographic form that added a new dimension to French impressionism and exerted an important influence on later photography."
László Moholy-Nagy retrospective by László Moholy-Nagy( Book )

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

Throughout his career Moholy-Nagy produced brilliant works in painting, film, photography, sculpture, set design and typography.

This companion volume to a retrospective features 170 works from all phases of Moholy-Nagy's career. Essays on his involvement with the Bauhaus School; his late paintings; his photographs, photograms, and photosculptures; and his accomplishments in the field of graphic art are complemented by numerous colour illustrations. The book also documents the reconstruction of a never completed work, The Room of Today, which incorporates the most important themes Moholy-Nagy brought to his art. Readers viewing his work for the first time, along with those already possessing a deep appreciation for his art, will celebrate this long-overdue volume
James Ensor by James Ensor( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Belgian painter James Ensor (1860-1949) created a body of work that is comical, ironic and profound, which can be interpreted in many ways.' To a large degree his work is self-referential, both foreshadowing and reflecting back upon itself and containing many simultaneous strands of development and parallel phenomena." "Ensor's unusual motifs, which became distinctive symbols for the absurdity of life, have fascinated and influenced other artists from all other periods since then in view of new tendencies in contemporary art such as the manifestation of the grotesque and comic, Ensor's work is yet again current. Featuring almost 80 masterpieces on canvas and over no works on paper-both drawings and prints - this monograph presents key works from all periods of his career. Special focus is given to the artist's later works, which have long been neglected by art historians."--Jacket

Op Art : Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt by Martina Weinhart( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in German and Multiple languages and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thus art is not an object, but an experience." This volume collects the work of a generation of international "op artists" who were fascinated by the physical laws of light and optics, visual phenomena and the principles of perception. Op art, also known as optical art, is a style of visual art that makes use of optical illusions. "Optical art is a method of painting concerning the interaction between illusion and picture plane, between understanding and seeing." Op art works are abstract, with many of the better known pieces made in only black and white. When the viewer looks at them, the impression is given of movement, hidden images, flashing and vibration, patterns, or alternatively, of swelling or warping

Courbet : a dream of modern art by Gustave Courbet( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The intertwined stories of Realism and modernism begin with the great innovations of Gustave Courbet (1819-1877). Realism sought to record the messiness, poverty and brute facts of everyday life in urban and rural France, against the restrictions of religion and class and the high-flown emotion of the Romantic painters. Courbet's "Burial at Ornans" is a classic instance of Courbet's stance: it depicts a funeral in rural Ornans, and uses the occasion's actual participants, instead of models, portraying them entirely without sentiment, and on a scale usually reserved for royal subjects. But in his portraits, landscapes, drawings and still lifes, Courbet frequently suggested a more meditative, inward-looking realm, somewhat removed from his declarations of social realities, and revealed in such works his virtuoso touch and formal brilliance. Gustave Courbet: A Dream of Modern Art introduces this "other" Courbet, the painter whose vision of nature and formal preoccupations were later inherited by Cezanne and Picasso, and further built on by the Symbolists and Surrealists. With over 200 color reproductions of the French Realist's work, as well as essays by Sylvain Amic and Bettina Erche, this volume acts as a welcome counterweight to the Courbet we thought we already knew, further complicating and enriching our understanding of one of the most influential European painters any century has produced

Rodin Beuys by Auguste Rodin( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in German and English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Next to Wilhelm Lehmbruck, Auguste Rodin was among the sculptors that Joseph Beuys, up to his death in 1986, most highly prized. Beuys became aware of the great sculptor as early as 1950 when he read the monograph by Rainer Maria Rilke on Rodin's work, which provided him with crucial aesthetic impulses. Beuys' early drawings show thematic and conceptual connections to Rodin's watercolors and drawings. For instance, both artists refer back to ancient mythology, e.g., in their female figures, which they paint on paper in coats of glaze. But also the lines of tradition that Auguste Rodin passed on by way of Wilhelm Lehmbruck were taken up by Beuys, such as his interest in the artistic possibilities of the torso." "The complex relation to the work of Auguste Rodin can be followed in the book's comprehensive section showing works by Rodin, Lehmbruck and Beuys."--Jacket
