Picasso and Braque : the Cubist experiment, 1910-1912 by Pablo Picasso( Book )

Picasso and Braque offers an intimate look at one of the most pivotal exchanges in the history of Western art: the culminating two years (1910-12) of Analytic Cubism. While the Cubist experiment has long been a requisite chapter in the history of modernism, this is the first publication to delve deeply into these two intense years of productivity, revealing the intriguing pictorial game being played out between these two great masters. Essays by prominent curators and historians offer sustained readings of paintings, drawings, and prints in terms of their engagement with issues of genre, format, medium, and artistic process. In addition, the new technology of spectral imaging provides reproductions of astounding color and textural fidelity, making this an essential publication for those seeking to understand better the complexity of Picasso's and Braque's mark-making, which typically evades conventional photography.--Publisher
The repeating image : multiples in French painting from David to Matisse by Eik Kahng( Book )
15 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Today, repetitive imagery dominates all forms of visual experience, from the realm of advertising to the spaces of contemporary art. In this innovative project, the authors show that the phenomenon of repetition - often considered merely incidental to the age of mechanical reproduction - was a pervasive attribute of early modern painting long before its embrace by twentieth-century high modernism." "In works by David, Ingres, Delaroche, Gerome, Corot, Millet, Monet, Cezanne, Degas, and Matisse, the reader can compare closely related versions of some of the most familiar imagery of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The authors demonstrate that by making multiples of closely related subject matter in their paintings and in other media, these artists challenged an aesthetic based on the notion of an inimitable, unique masterpiece." "Through beautiful illustrations and essays by leading scholars, this book shows how repetition in early modern painting took on a complex, multivalent significance and that the traditional medium of painting remained undiminished despite the nineteenth-century invention of photography and film."--Jacket

Delacroix and the matter of finish by Eik Kahng( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This groundbreaking publication centers on a previously unknown variation of Eugène Delacroix's (1798-1863) dramatic masterpiece The Last Words of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, published here for the first time. This book offers a compelling reassessment of the relationship of the artist, widely consider a primary exemplar of Romanticism, to Neoclassical themes, as demonstrated by his life-long fascination with the death of Marcus Aurelius. Through this investigation, the authors reinterpret Delacroix's lineage to such fellow artists as Jean-Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780-1867) and Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825). Playing on the various interpretations of the word "finish," the book also offers a fascinating account of Delacroix's famously troubled collaboration with his studio assistants, his conflicted feelings about pedagogy, and his preoccupation with the fate of civilizations"--
