Prints and the pursuit of knowledge in early modern Europe ( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An unusual collaboration among distinguished art historians and historians of science, this book demonstrates how printmakers of the Northern Renaissance, far from merely illustrating the ideas of others, contributed to scientific investigations of their time. Hans Holbein, for instance, worked with cosmographers and instrument makers on some of the earliest sundial manuals published; Albrecht Durer produced the first printed maps of the constellations, which astronomers copied for over a century; and, Hendrick Goltzius' depiction of the muscle-bound Hercules served as a study aid for students of anatomy. "Prints and the Pursuit of Knowledge in Early Modern Europe" features fascinating reproductions of woodcuts, engravings, and etchings; maps, globe gores, and globes; multilayered anatomical 'flap' prints; and, paper scientific instruments used for observation and measurement. Among the 'do-it-yourself' paper instruments were sundials and astrolabes, and the book incorporates a facsimile of globe gores for the reader to cut out and assemble. -- Publisher description
The last expression : art and Auschwitz ( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The catalog includes reproductions of some 300 artworks; each tells a piece of an incredible history. Each remnant of these personal journeys and individual travails contributes to our understanding of the victims of the Holocaust, their experiences, the nature and function of the camps, the strategies of the perpetrators, as well as the will and need to create art."--BOOK JACKET

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Casting a shadow : creating the Alfred Hitchcock film ( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Director Alfred Hitchcock carefully cultivated his reputation as the solitary genius behind his films. In reality Hitchcock was a deeply collaborative artist, working intensely with actors, producers, cinematographers, screenwriters, editors, and production designers to create what the public knew as "an Alfred Hitchcock picture." This illustrated book presents multiple perspectives on Hitchcock as artist and provides a rare view into the working documents - sketches, production and costume designs, drawings, storyboards, and camera-angle diagrams - that helped shape his cinematic style." "With an introduction by Will Schmenner and four original essays from leading film scholars, this volume offers insight into Hitchcock's work and working methods. Scott Curtis examines Hitchcock's cinematic skills through a detailed categorization of the drawings from his productions. Tom Gunning explores Hitchcock the artist by looking at his use of the frame and the art of painting within his movies. Bill Krohn's close reading of I Confess reveals some of the thematic and ideological concerns that occupied Hitchcock. Jan Olsson addresses the strategies Hitchcock used to control his publicity. A combination of images and text, Casting a Shadow reconsiders director Alfred Hitchcock as the shepherd of a collective vision that shaped 20th-century art with some of the most memorable movies of our time."--BOOK JACKET

The Polaroid years : instant photography and experimentation ( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Filled with images from a trove of artists from Ansel Adams to Andy Warhol, this is the first volume to explore the Polaroid camera's indelible influence on the history of photography. From its inception in 1947, the Polaroid system inspired artists to experiment--to dazzling effect--with the cameras' unique technologies. Edwin Land, the inventor of the first Polaroid instant camera, remarked on his discovery, "Photography will never be the same." And he was right. This fascinating journey through the Polaroid era documents the evolution of instant photography. Hundreds of color images celebrate the myriad ways Polaroid photographs have been used and ingeniously manipulated by Walker Evans, David Hockney, Barbara Kasten, Robert Mapplethorpe, Lucas Samaras, and others. The book features essays addressing the unique technology of instant photography and the marketing genius of the Polaroid Corporation. Artist statements from Ellen Carey, Chuck Close, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Bryan Graf, Miranda Lichtenstein, David Levinthal, Joy Neimanas, Lisa Oppenheim, Catherine Opie, John Reuter, William Wegman, and James Welling reveal how Polaroids affected and, in many instances, forever changed the way they captured the world around them."--Publisher's website
Wangechi Mutu : a fantastic journey by Wangechi Mutu ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This richly illustrated full-color catalog accompanies the first major solo museum exhibition and most comprehensive survey of the artist Wangechi Mutu's work, on view at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University from March 21, 2013, through July 21, 2013, before traveling to the Brooklyn Museum. Born in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1972, and now based in Brooklyn, Mutu renders the complex global sensibility of the early twenty-first century through a distinctly hybrid aesthetic. She combines found materials and magazine cutouts with sculpture and painted imagery, sampling from sources and phenomena as diverse as African traditions, international politics, the fashion industry, and science fiction. In her work, Mutu marries poetic symbolism with sociopolitical critique to explore issues of gender, race, war, colonialism, and, particularly, the exoticization of the black female body. The many images included in Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey highlight the most important and iconic works that Mutu has created since the mid-1990s, as well as portray new collages, drawings, videos, and site-specific installations. The catalog also offers an intimate look into her sketchbooks and includes an interview with the artist conducted by the exhibition's curator, Trevor Schoonmaker. Essays by Schoonmaker, the art historian Kristine Stiles, and the critic, musician, and producer Greg Tate are paired with an illustrated chronology of Mutu's work."--Publisher's website
