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

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 )

18 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 414 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
The paintings of Moholy-Nagy : the shape of things to come by Joyce Tsai( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Laszlo Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946) became notorious for the declarations he made about the end of painting, encouraging artists to exchange brush, pigment, and canvas for camera, film, and searchlight. Even as he made these radical claims, he painted throughout his career. The practice of painting enabled Moholy-Nagy to imagine generative relationships between art and technology, and to describe the shape that future possibilities might take. Joyce Tsai illuminates the evolution of painting's role for Moholy-Nagy through key periods in his career: at the German Bauhaus in the 1920s, in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom in the early 1930s, and as director of the New Bauhaus in Chicago in the last decade of his life. The book also includes an introduction to the history, qualities, and significance of plastic materials that Moholy-Nagy used over the course of his career, and an essay on how his project of shaping habitable space in his art and writing resonated with artists and industrial designers in the 1960s and 1970s."--

Delacroix and the matter of finish by Eik Kahng( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 7 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"--
David Wiesner and the art of wordless storytelling by Katherine Roeder( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first publication to show the creative process of David Wiesner, one of the world's most acclaimed children's book illustrators A master of storytelling through pictures and three-time winner of the Caldecott Medal, David Wiesner (b. 1956) is one of the most highly acclaimed book illustrators in the world. This handsome volume is the first to examine his creative process and his many sources of inspiration. The book features dozens of lavish color plates, from early work to the exquisitely wrought watercolors that are the basis of his best-known books, along with pages excerpted from his forthcoming first graphic novel, Fish Girl. Also included are works by some of the artists most influential to Wiesner, including Marvel comic book legends, Surrealist and avant-garde masters, and mid-20th-century graphic artists. While illustration has often been marginalized in the world of fine art, the vibrant interplay among paintings, prints, comic books, graphic novels, iconic 20th-century films, and cartoons in Wiesner's art gives evidence to the complexity of the American tradition of picture book illustration.00Exhibition: Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Santa Barbara, USA (05.02-14.05.2017); The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, USA 918.06-05.11.2017)

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Artists continued to discover and explore the artistic and practical applications of photography at the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth centuries.
