"R. B. Kitaj is recognized as a modern master whose powerful, controversial and highly personal paintings, pastels and drawings reflect his unfashionable commitment to the human figure as a subject, and his complex involvement with the art of the past, with political and social issues, and with his own Jewish identity." "Marco Livingstone's monograph on Kitaj is based on a series of interviews and letters between the artist and the author, and provides full and up-to-date documentation of Kitaj's life and work. The artist himself has participated actively in the design of the book, and has written for it a series of articulate and revealing 'prefaces' to his own paintings." "For this expanded third edition, the author has written a new chapter surveying Kitaj's work in the 1990s, a tragic period dominated by his now famous confrontation with the critics of his 1994 retrospective exhibition, the subsequent death of his wife the artist Sandra Fisher, and his eventual return to the United States. This text is complemented by a new plate section illustrating 22 recent works, and three additional 'prefaces' written by the artist."--BOOK JACKET

American-born artist R.B. Kitaj (1932-2007) was one of the most controversial artists of the second half of the twentieth century. His distinctive, highly personal and often challenging works drew on many influences ranging from literature to politics and film. The British museum holds a near complete set of the artist's proofs, the best representation of the artist's graphic works in the UK. Kitaj worked in England for almost forty years. It was in London that he had developed his early style and influenced many of his friends, including David Hockney, Lucian Freud and Frank Auerbach. This led Kitaj to coin the term 'school of London', later associated with this group of purely figurative artists

Three colours Cézanne by Janice Sutherland ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Paul Cézanne is considered the father of modern painting. In the South of France, his obstinacy as man and artist made him a pioneer of a new way of seeing. Returning always to the same subjects, the Mont Sainte-Victoire, bathing figures, or still lives, he abandoned central perspective, distorted body-shapes, and broke all the traditional rules of landscape painting. Now, a wide range of historians and commentators examine many of Cézanne's works in detail
