Van Gogh and Gauguin : the studio of the south by Douglas W Druick ( Book )
6 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The friendship of Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin - including an intense, two-month collaboration in Aries, in the south of France - is one of the most revealing and dynamic relationships in the history of modern art. When they first met in Paris in late 1887, they were two of a number of artists seeking a way to move beyond impressionism. They found common ground in the belief that progressive art should be created at a distance from urban decadence, a conviction that led Gauguin to Brittany and van Gogh to Aries in the early months of 1888." "Published on the occasion of a landmark exhibition organized by The Art Institute of Chicago and the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, the book is a provocative study of influence and innovation. With a wealth of illustrations, it offers a new perspective on some of the best-known masterpieces of modern art, as well as fresh insight into two of its central personalities."--BOOK JACKET

On the art of fixing a shadow : one hundred and fifty years of photography ( Book )
3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 1,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is a catalogue of an exhibition held at the National Gallery of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. At this sesquicentennial celebration, it has been our intention in both the exhibition and the catalogue to present and analyze those photographs that, regardless of why they were made, seem the most visually significant. Limiting ourselves, for the most part, to American and European photographers, we have attempted to chart the development of an understanding of photography as a pictorial device. - Introduction

Roy Lichtenstein : a retrospective by Janis Hendrickson ( Book )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 934 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The most iconic works of Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) are widely known, reproduced, copied, and even parodied. However, the true diversity and complexity of his oeuvre is little understood, and the full scope of his career is largely absent from the existing literature. Presenting over 130 paintings and sculptures, as well as over thirty seldom- or never-before-seen drawings and collages, this book examines all periods in Lichtenstein's career, going well beyond his brushstrokes and the classic Pop romance and war cartoon paintings that made him famous.Roy Lichtenstein: A Retrospective features exciting new scholarship by an international team of distinguished curators, critics, and art historians. Essays by Yve-Alain Bois, Chrissie Iles, and Stephen Little, among others, give special consideration to Lichtenstein's historical influences, from Picasso and Cubism through Surrealism, Futurism, and British Pop. Contributions by James Rondeau and Sheena Wagstaff evaluate the artist's abstract work and late nudes. Complemented by photographs of the artist and his seminal exhibitions, the essays examine the various styles and subjects featured in paintings created throughout his lifetime. The inclusion of a complete chronology of Lichtenstein's life and work--compiled by Clare Bell of the Lichtenstein Foundation--makes this retrospective the most authoritative publication on the artist since his death in 1997"--
