Kara Walker : narratives of a negress by Kara Elizabeth Walker ( Book )
3 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Kara Walker: Narratives of a Negress presents a comprehensive overview of Walker's work, beginning with her first cut-paper wall installation, Gone, An Historical Romance of a Civil War as it Occurred between the Dusky Thighs of One Young Negress and Her Heart, 1994, through new multimedia installations that feature layers of colored projections. The 1996 series of twenty-four watercolors, Brown Follies, is reproduced in full, as are many views of Walker's past exhibitions. Throughout the book is a selection of Walker's writings printed as they appear typed on index cards. These writings reveal a rarely seen side of the artist, whose words are as provocative as her installations and drawings. Also included are four essays that discuss Walker's place in art history, formal and narrative dimensions of her work, her relation to culture at large, and issues of race, sexuality, and representation addressed in her art."--BOOK JACKET

Graphic design in the mechanical age : selections from the Merrill C. Berman collection by Deborah Menaker Rothschild ( Book )
5 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Drawing from Merrill C. Berman's private collection of twentieth-century posters, ads, photomontages, and graphic ephemera, this book showcases more than two hundred examples of progressive graphic design from the 1920s and 1930s. European, Soviet, and American avant-garde designers and artists of the time, using new technologies of mass production and mass distribution, marketed everything from salad oil and cigarettes to communism, utopian socialism, and the avant-garde itself." "These selections from the Berman Collection, most never before shown or reproduced in the United States, include works by well-known artists (Lissitzky, Rodchenko, Man Ray, and others) and by lesser-known masters. The book begins by detailing Berman's pivotal role in shaping the history of graphic design as he amassed his collection."--BOOK JACKET

Making it new : the art and style of Sara and Gerald Murphy ( Book )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Paris in the 1920s - art, literature, the Lost Generation. The glitterati who inhabited this legendary world - F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, Cole Porter, Man Ray, Dorothy Parker, and a host of others - were members of an intimate circle centered around Sara and Gerald Murphy. The Murphys, who endeavored to make art of their own lives, embodied a predominant theme of the 1920s: life as one would like it to be versus life as it is." "Making It New: The Art and Style of Sara and Gerald Murphy is a collection of essays examining through images and text the Murphys' influence on a remarkable constellation of artists. It accompanies an exhibition organized by the Williams College Museum of Art and examines, from multiple points of view, the Murphys' artistically adventurous way of life and their ability to confer distinction on everything, from the inconsequential to the grand. The book also explains how this period of enchantment ended and explores Gerald Murphy's abbreviated career as a painter, his artistic legacy, and the complex nature of his motivation and vision."--BOOK JACKET

Moving pictures : American art and early film, 1880-1910 by Nancy Mowll Mathews ( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This publication explores the complex relationship between American art and early film. From the photographs of Muybridge, Marey, and Eakins of the 1880s, to the first films of the 1890s which drew from established conventions of American art, to the New York films and art of the first decades of the twentieth century, the struggle between art and film both polarized and inspired the artists of its era."--BOOK JACKET
