James Rosenquist : pop art, politics, and history in the 1960s by Michael Lobel( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: James Rosenquist's paintings, with their billboard-sized images of commercial subjects, are utterly emblematic of 1960s Pop Art. Their provocative imagery also touches on some of the major political and historical events of that turbulent decade-from the Kennedy assassination to the war in Vietnam. In the first full-length scholarly examination of Rosenquist's art from that period, Michael Lobel weaves together close visual analysis, a wealth of archival research, and a consideration of the social and historical contexts in which these paintings were produced to offer bold new readings of a body of work that helped redefine art in the 1960s. Bringing together a range of approaches, James Rosenquist provides a compelling perspective on the artist and on the burgeoning consumer culture of postwar America
James Rosenquist : a retrospective by James Rosenquist( Book )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2003, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum mounted a major retrospective of James Rosenquist's works, which traveled to the Menil Collection, Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. Since the late 1950s, James Rosenquist has been creating an exceptional and consistently intriguing body of work. In the 1960s, following his early days as a billboard painter in the Midwest and New York City, he gained fame as one of the leaders of the American Pop art movement. Along with contemporaries Jim Dine, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, and Andy Warhol, Rosenquist drew on the iconography of advertising and mass media to conjure a sense of modern life. Rosenquist's paintings directly allude to the cultural and political tenor of the times in which they were created. From his renowned Pop canvases to his billboard-sized works and continuing with his recent use of abstract painting techniques, James Rosenquist: A Retrospective presents the artist's enduring interest in and mastery of texture, color, line, and shape that continues to dazzle audiences and influence younger generations of artists. The book features nearly 300 of the artist's most significant works--
James Rosenquist by Judith Goldman( Book )

10 editions published in 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the books cover: James Rosenquist's unlikely constellations of familiar, oversized images which took the art world by storm in the 1960s-when pop art had not yet found its name-remain today the primary icons of those years. Since that time, Rosenquist has proved that the flatness, the visual punning, the banality of pop can yield sensual, affecting, and profound images which wholly defy categorization. It has been twenty years since the oddly juxtaposed fragments of F-111 confounded critics, and in that time Rosenquist has distinguished himself for his versatility as he had initially for his vision; his endurance, along with his distinctive vocabulary, has made him seem to many the most American painter working today. In studying Rosenquist's work, Judith Goldman has had the advantage of many conversations with the artist. Coming as close as anyone has come to the source of the ubiquitous lipsticks and fingernails, tomatoes and gears, fragmented faces, razor blades, and fields of spaghetti, Goldman has followed Rosenquist from New York to Florida, to his native North Dakota, and back again. In James Rosenquist she paints a portrait of the hyperkinetic artist as he himself might have painted it. James Rosenquist's reputation has grown steadily over the years, and his influence can be seen on a generation of younger painters. In this elegantly written and lavishly illustrated book Judith Goldman marshals facts, feelings, aesthetics, wisdom, and humor to illuminate the nature of his achievement

Time dust, James Rosenquist : complete graphics, 1962-1992 by Constance W Glenn( Book )

8 editions published in 1993 in English and German and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Rosenquist is an internationally renowned artist who first achieved wide recognition as a result of his pioneering contributions to Pop Art in the 1960s and 1970s. Like many artists of his circle, particularly Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, Rosenquist has been fascinated with the visual language and ephemera of mass-reproduction. In Rosenquist's case, his interest was manifested in an art derived from popular imagery sources yet committed to the expression of his personal concerns as an artist and a printmaker. He has tested the limits of the medium in order to achieve, on the one hand, subtle nuances unique to particular techniques, and, on the other, the vast billboard scale that is his signature style." "This book traces Rosenquist's entire career, from his early work as a sign painter to the creation of what is thought to be the world's largest print, Time Dust, completed in 1992. An important historical text by Constance Glenn explores such contemporary issues as the role of the mass-media, the appropriation of its techniques and imagery, and the origin and demand for multiple images, as well as presenting in depth the artist's evolution as painter and printmaker. The 150 colorplates include - in addition to landmark paintings - numerous examples of previously unpublished sketches and prints, as well as many of Rosenquist's famous works, such as the great installation print F-111. The book includes a catalogue raisonne of the artist's 229 prints and an extensive bibliography."--BOOK JACKET
Who gets to call it art? : the legend of Henry Geldzahler, 1935-1994 by Peter Rosen( Visual )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Geldzahler (1935-94), star curator and cultural impresario, lived a life worth examining. The first curator of the Department of 20th-Century Art at the Metropolitan Museum, first director of visual arts for the National Endowment of the Arts, and the first full-time commissioner of cultural affairs for New York City, his landmark 1969 show at the Metropolitan is still remembered with awe. "New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970" filled 35 galleries with more than 400 groundbreaking works of contemporary art. This film is not a full biographical examination of this singular figure's life, but rather a portrait in profile, as many of 'his' artists talk about Geldzahler and what his friendship meant to them

James Rosenquist : his American life by Judith Goldman( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lipsticks, automobiles, dishwashers, men in business suits, spaghetti, rockets, airplanes, hairdryers, ice cream cones and pigtailed girls: James Rosenquist (1933-2017) has always known how to combine these seemingly disparate but always all-American elements into whirlwind, billboard-sized collages. With airbrushed surreal euphoria, he slammed 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 of the 1960s through 1980s, will give long-overdue attention to Rosenquist's singular achievement in American art during these three decades. 0 0Exhibition: Acquavella Galleries, New York, USA (25.10.-07.12.2018)
