Most widely held works by Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Frank Gehry, architect by Frank O Gehry( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and Spanish and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the 1997 completion of what many consider his greatest achievement - the stunning Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain - Frank O. Gehry has soared to the forefront of contemporary American architecture. Long recognized by his peers for his innovative designs, Gehry now enjoys a new level of prominence in the popular imagination. This book, the catalogue of the first large-scale retrospective of Gehry's work in 15 years, examines the architect's unique vision and provides the historical perspective with which to interpret the audacious accomplishments." "Essays by noted museum curators and architectural historians explore his iconoclastic spirit and trace his melding of unconventional materials and forms. Photographs, drawings, plans, and scale models communicate the breadth and complexity of Gehry's work and show how, in his view of architecture as sculptural space, Gehry has opened up a world of new possibilities for architecture."--Jacket
Jean Dubuffet: a retrospective by Jean Dubuffet( Book )

6 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The emergent decade; Latin American painters and painting in the 1960's by Thomas M Messer( Book )

5 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalogue accompanied the first American museum retrospective of the English artist Francis Bacon. In his essay, Senior Curator Lawrence Alloway explores the essence of Bacon's painting beyond the usual associations with the grotesque. Instead, he offers a different argument: Bacon was a realist painter of his time, closely tied into the Grand Manner and painters such as Manet, Van Gogh, Velasquez, and Titian. Bacon continued and evolved the central tradition of European figure painting at a time when abstraction was dominating the art world. Also included are an exhibition checklist, 64 color and black-and-white reproductions, and a bibliography

Picasso and the war years, 1937-1945 by Pablo Picasso( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book draws upon new research and works that, in some cases, were held out of public view in Picasso's own collection to explore the critically important - but still under-studiedperiod of his life from the time of the Spanish Civil War through World War II and the Nazi occupation of France. This span of years is marked by some of the most intensely personal and expressive work of his long and diverse career." "This book is published in conjunction with a major exhibition organized by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. It traces Picasso's responses to the cataclysm of war as manifested in a lengthy series of figure paintings, still lifes, portraits, and cityscapes, amplified by prints, drawings, and photographs, drawn from collections all around the world."--Jacket

The worlds of Nam June Paik by John G Hanhardt( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and Korean and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No artist has had a greater influence in imagining and realizing the artistic potential of video and television than Nam June Paik. Through a vast array of installations, videotapes, global television productions, films and performances, Paik has reshaped our perceptions of the temporal image in contemporary art. The Worlds of Nam June Paik is a celebration of the moving image and an appreciation of Paik's impact on the art of the late twentieth century. The full range of Paik's singular achievement is represented--from his early 1960s performance pieces through his videotapes, installations, megatrons and celebrated robot portraits--including his recent, spectacular laser-projection installations in the rotunda of Frank Lloyd Wright's Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. In an informative and personal essay, John G. Hanhardt, a longtime supporter of Paik's work, provides an overview of the artist's career while focusing on his important place in the history of the moving image. Also included are a selected exhibition and performance history as well as a selected bibliography [Publisher description]

Kandinsky by Wassily Kandinsky( Book )

12 editions published in 2009 in French and English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents abstract Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944). It reproduces scores of recently rediscovered paintings that had languished for decades in Soviet museums and in private collections. The author provides new details on Kandinsky's life and art, discussing his little-known experimental stage plays which strove for a synthesis of all the arts, and his friendships with Paul Klee, Arnold Schonberg and composer Thomas von Hartmann, who introduced the artist to Sufism, the mystical offshoot of Islam. Most chapters include excerpts from Kandinsky's newspaper articles, essays and unpublished letters, creating the impression of a tolerant nonconformist who saw art as inseparably linked with the higher laws of the cosmos. The reproductions provide an exciting glimpse of Kandinsky's leap into abstraction after his early absorption of folk and religious art, fauvism and neo-impressionism

Peggy Guggenheim : a celebration by Karole P. B Vail( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born into a wealthy New York family, Peggy - whose Uncle Solomon would establish the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation - participated in the cultural ferment of life in London and Paris during the 192Os and 193Os. Her friends included many of the most significant avant-garde figures of the era, such as Samuel Beckett and Marcel Duchamp. In London, she ran Guggenheim Jeune, her cutting-edge gallery devoted to contemporary art. During the months surrounding the outbreak of World War II, Peggy accelerated her purchases of abstract and Surrealist art until she was buying virtually one work every day, eventually amassing one of the most important collections of Modern art in private hands. After escaping to New York in the company of Max Ernst, she established the gallery Art of This Century, which from 1942 to 1947 featured her collection as well as the first or early solo exhibitions for such artists as Robert Motherwell, Jackson Pollock, and Mark Rothko." "In 1948, Peggy settled permanently in Venice, where her home, the eighteenth-century Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, would become the Peggy Guggenheim Collection after her death in 1979. The collection is now one of the most celebrated for visitors to Venice. Vail's essay provides important new information on the Venice years, during which Peggy kept guest books that record the visits of an astonishing array of international personalities. Pages from these guest books - published here for the first time - include unique drawings by such artists as Marc Chagall, Jean Cocteau, and Saul Weinberg."--Jacket
