Marcel Proust by Edmund White ( Book )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and French and held by 1,406 libraries worldwide
"Considered the greatest - and most influential - writer of the twentieth century, Marcel Proust was also one of its most fascinating figures. In this portrait, Edmund White, author of an acclaimed biography of Jean Genet and the much admired novel A Boy's Own Story displays a rare understanding of this most complex man. A strange, reclusive genius who often lay in bed for days at a time in his cork-lined room, obsessively rewriting his masterpiece, Remembrance of Things Past, Proust was at other times a tireless socialite, attending the grandest parties and dazzling the guests - especially the most important ones - with his vivacity and wit. White also depicts the yearning, lonely boy, the ambitious grasper after honors, and the miserably closeted homosexual, an aspect of his life that this book explores frankly and perceptively."--BOOK JACKET.

David Hockney : portraits by David Hockney ( Book )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 776 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.
