Graphic design in the mechanical age : selections from the Merrill C. Berman collection by Deborah Menaker Rothschild( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 668 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."--Jacket
Kara Walker : narratives of a negress by Kara Elizabeth Walker( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 640 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."--Jacket
Refigured painting : the German image, 1960-88 by Thomas Krens( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Making it new : the art and style of Sara and Gerald Murphy( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 448 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."--Jacket
Carrie Mae Weems : the Hampton Project by Vivian Patterson( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One Hundred Years of Difference brings together photographs from Frances B. Johnston's stunning Hampton Album of 1900 with a related series of new images by renowned contemporary artist Carrie Mae Weems. Johnston's portrayal of the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute, founded in 1868 in Virginia for the education of "selected Negro youths" and displaced Native Americans, is a thought-provoking historical album. Weems, known for her savvy and ironic view of race struggle in America, illustrates the "one hundred years of difference" with a new series of photographic banners, shaped in direct response to Johnston's images and to life at Hampton University today. This remarkable book examines the work of two women, distanced by time and race yet joined by their shared interest in a unique educational experience. One Hundred Years of Difference includes an interview with Weems, as well as essays by Deborah Willis (curator for the Center for African-American History and Culture at the Smithsonian Institution) and Jeanne Zeidler (director of the Museum of Art at Hampton University), among others. An accompanying exhibition opened at the Williams College Museum of Art in March 2000 and will travel to venues throughout the United States
Moving pictures : American art and early film, 1880-1910 by Nancy Mowll Mathews( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 298 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."--Jacket
