Joseph Cornell : shadowplay eterniday by Joseph Cornell( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published to celebrate the centennial of Joseph Cornell's birth in 1903, this book provides a fresh, multidimensional perspective on the pioneering modern artist. Lavishly illustrated with over seventy-five boxes and collages, as well as images of the fascinating source material that the artist collected to create his exquisitely crafted worlds, the book communicates to the reader the sense of surprise and delight that one experiences upon viewing the actual boxes with their toys, stuffed birds, maps, clay pipes, marbles, shells, and other paraphernalia of daily life." "The book's essays bring together the expertise of Lynda Roscoe Hartigan, chief curator at the Peabody Essex Museum and former director of the Joseph Cornell Study Center; the compelling commentary of Walter Hopps, art dealer, museum curator, and the artist's personal friend; the wide-ranging scholarship of Richard Vine, author and managing editor of Art in America; and the sensitivity of Robert Lehrman, a leading Cornell collector whose firsthand experience lends this publication its distinctive intimacy. Among the topics explored are the role of dualities in the artistic process, the dominant themes of Cornell's oeuvre, and the importance of his Christian Science faith."--BOOK JACKET

Kienholz, a retrospective by Edward Kienholz( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tableaux, environments, and conceptual pieces of Edward Kienholz and Nancy Reddin Kienholz are direct, powerful, and uncompromising. The works span four decades, beginning with Edward's pieces from the 1950s and continuing with those produced jointly with Nancy Reddin Kienholz from 1972 until Edward's death in 1994. Emerging from the Beat aesthetic of the early 1950s, the Kienholz oeuvre embraces the honest spontaneity of jazz, the emotional intensity of Abstract Expressionism, and the homemade approach of do-it-yourself modernism. At the same time, it is also socially conscious realist sculpture by artists resolutely engaged in an ongoing critique of the world around them. The Kienholzes probed the dark edges of postwar society, confronting war, racism, institutional indifference, sexuality, and cruelty. Published on the occasion of an important retrospective exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, Kienholz: A Retrospective is the most fully illustrated book ever published on the Kienholz oeuvre. It reproduces in more than four hundred illustrations a selection of works ranging from intimate collages to life-size tableaux, created between 1954 and 1994. The eight texts in the catalogue - by art and social historians, artists, and friends - offer critical insights into the Kienholz work as well as personal reminiscences. Nancy Reddin Kienholz has also contributed an extended chronology, written especially for this publication

James Rosenquist : a retrospective by Walter Hopps( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and French and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Lipsticks, automobiles, dishwashers, men in business suits, spaghetti, rockets, airplanes, hairdryers, ice cream cones and pigtailed girls. James Rosenquist has always known how to combine these seemingly disparate but always all-American elements into whirlwind, billboard-sized collages of airbrushed surreal euphoria, slamming colors, patterns and objects into one another with the eye of an advertising man and the heart of a Pop artist. This momentous catalogue, published to accompany the first in-depth survey of the artist's work since 1972, will give long-overdue, in-depth attention to Rosenquist's singular achievement in American art. Extensive illustrations cover major works in diverse media, including work on paper that reveals the artist's process, as well as extensive new and archival photography. Essays focus on areas that have only been superficially addressed in the literature to date, bringing the level of Rosenquist scholarship up to that of his Pop Art contemporaries. Curator Walter Hopps provides an overview of the artist's career; Julia Blaut considers the artist's source collages in the context of 20th-century collage; Ruth E. Fine addresses Rosenquist's prints; art collector and former aeronautics researcher Eugene E. Epstein relates the artist's work to scientific phenomena. Also included are a definitive biography, exhibition history and illustrated chronology
