David Hockney by Marco Livingstone ( Book )
36 editions published between 1981 and 2003 in 6 languages and held by 1,462 libraries worldwide
The relationship between art and life has been of overriding importance in the work of David Hockney, who has perhaps enjoyed greater popularity than any other British artist this century. Here Marco Livingstone traces those connections from the beginning of the artist's career in the early 1960s through to the more recent works that have contributed to Hockney's international reputation. These include his photocollages and highly acclaimed stage designs for the opera, not to mention his embrace of technology - namely the fax drawings and color laser prints - which show the continuing preoccupation with invention and artifice that has made the artist's work at once popular and enduring.
David Hockney : portraits by David Hockney ( Book )
22 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in 6 languages and held by 855 libraries worldwide
"David Hockney (b. 1937) is one of the most significant artists exploring and pushing the boundaries of figurative art today. Hockney has been engaged with portraiture since his teenage years, when he painted Portrait of my Father (1955), and his self-portraits and depictions of family, lovers, and friends represent an intimate visual diary of the artist's life." "This illustrated book examines Hockney's portraits in all media - painting, drawing, photographs, and prints - and has been produced in close collaboration with the artist. Featured subjects include members of Hockney's family and private circle, as well as portraits of such artists and cultural figures as Lucian Freud, Francesco Clemente, R. B. Kitaj, Helmut Newton, Lawrence Weschler, and W. H. Auden. The authors reveal how Hockney's creative development and concerns about representation can be traced through his portrait work: from his battle with naturalism to his experimentation with and later rejection of photography, and from his recent camera lucida drawings to his return to painting from life in oil." "Featuring more than 250 works from the past fifty years, David Hockney Portraits illustrates not only the fascinating range of Hockney's creative practice but also the unique and cyclical nature of his artistic concerns."--BOOK JACKET.

Jim Dine flowers and plants by Marco Livingstone ( Book )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 606 libraries worldwide
Jim Dine, renowned for his wit and creativity as a Pop and Happenings artist, has a restless, searching intellect that leads him to challenge himself constantly. In the 1970s he began to focus on flowers and plants, sometimes from his own garden. Always a superb draftsman, Dine revealed a hitherto untapped precision and depth of expression in his botanical drawings and paintings, which are collected here for the first time. Many of these works have never before been published; the impetus for them came from this projected book. In this extraordinary and intense series, he extends traditional botanical illustration and flower painting to encompass a new subjectivity, deriving from artistic and personal sources. Familiar garden and house plants yield unsuspected qualities in Dine's work. Gardeners as well as art lovers will find his wide knowledge of plants and flowers delightful and rewarding.

The essential Duane Michals by Duane Michals ( Book )
3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 536 libraries worldwide
"Since taking his first pictures four decades ago, Duane Michals has established himself as an artist who has reinvented the medium of photography from an instrument for recording the visible world to an agent of thought and emotion. Michals has made use of all the tricks of the camera and darkroom - including double-exposure, blurred movement and photomontage - in order to construct images that provide his visions with the veracity of a witnessed event. From the 1960s he began to supplement photographs with texts and to create narrative sequences of images. Highly influential among photographers, these innovations have led to other inventive strategies: texts without photographs, or photographs paired with drawings or obscured in paint. But formal and technical considerations have never become an end in themselves; rather they have served Michals's need to communicate themes of growing subtlety and to express his ideas on such matters as the spirit, mortality, desire, human relationships, politics, time and memory. The works brought together in this book - whether commissioned or made for himself, and whether previously unpublished or already familiar to his admirers - demonstrate the rare ability of an artist to be freed of all restraints and preconceptions while remaining always true to himself."--BOOK JACKET.

Allen Jones : prints by Allen Jones ( Book )
3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 226 libraries worldwide
Prints form an integral part of Allen Jones's creative processes and are as important to him as painting and sculpture. It is therefore scarcely surprising that, ever since his student days, he has produced a steady stream of graphic works, mainly lithographs, but also screenprints and some etchings. Centring on the human figure, Jones's images exude a guilt-free eroticism and an unrestrained joie de vivre rare in British art. Sometimes misinterpreted as sexist, this imagery, like that of Derek Boshier, David Hockney, R. B. Kitaj and Peter Phillips, Jones's contemporaries at the Royal College of Art, London, in the early 1960s, is both a eulogy and a critique of consumerism.
