"The dynamic partnership of Christo and Jeanne-Claude spans more than four decades, and their enormous outdoor art installations are known the world over ... from 1972 to 1976, Christo and Jeanne-Claude conceived, planned, and created the Running Fence, an eighteen-foot-high white nylon fence that stretched more than twenty-four miles across Marin and Sonoma counties in northern California. ... It was a landmark event in contemporary art. [book title] revisits the ephemeral splendor of this remarkable outdoor installation and celebrates the Smithsonian American Art Museum's recent acquisition of the complete documentation exhibition for Running Fence, Sonoma and Marin Counties, California, 1972-1976, an archive of more than 350 individual items, including fifty original preparatory works by Christo, a sixty-eight-foot-long scale model, more than 240 documentary photographs by Wolfgang Volz and Gianfranco Gorgoni, and fence materials from the original installation"--Inside cover
Irving Penn : beyond beauty by Irving Penn( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Famous for his fashion portraits and experimentation with still life images, Irving Penn (1917-2009) ranks as one of the foremost photographers of the 20th century. In an illustrious career that spanned nearly 70 years, Penn was a master of both black-and-white and color photography, and his revival of platinum printing in the 1960s and 1970s was a catalyst for significant change in the art world. Drawing from the extensive holdings of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, including a major gift from The Irving Penn Foundation, this magnificent catalogue compiles 161 of Penn's iconic images, including a number of unpublished works. Beautifully designed and illustrated, this book accompanies the first retrospective exhibition of Penn's work in nearly 20 years and features photographs from all stages of his career, including street scenes from the late 1930s, celebrity portraits, Parisian fashion photographs, and more private studio images. Merry A. Foresta's captivating essay introduces this photographer to a younger generation and delves into Penn's use of photography to respond to social and cultural change, speaking to the depths of human existence

The artistic journey of Yasuo Kuniyoshi by Tom Wolf( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Artistic Journey of Yasuo Kuniyoshi is a long-overdue study of this complex artist's career. Born in Japan, Yasuo Kuniyoshi (1889-1953) arrived in the United States as a teenager and studied art in New York. Although thoroughly integrated into American life, immigration laws prevented him from becoming an American citizen. The early success he achieved with his distinctive modern figural works developed into a compelling and powerful late style. This new survey, the first full retrospective of his works since the Whitney Show of 1948, features seventy of Kuniyoshi's best paintings and drawings, chosen from leading public and private collections in America and Japan. Tom Wolf is professor of art history, Bard College, New York, and the leading Kuniyoshi scholar."--

William Christenberry by William Christenberry( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"His documentation of vernacular architecture, country churches and graveyards, signage, and landscape captures moments of quiet beauty in a sometimes mythic terrain that, with its worn iconography and buildings turned ramshackle, evokes the form and power of the passage of time. Since relocating to Washington, D.C., in 1968, Christenberry has dutifully returned home to photograph and consider the same locations annually - the green barn, the palmist building, the Bar-B-Q Inn, among others - fulfilling a personal ritual and documenting the physical changes wrought by the passing of a year. More than half the work in this comprehensive publication is previously unpublished."--Jacket
Curious worlds : the art and imagination of David Beck( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Curious Worlds: The Art & Imagination of David Beck pulls back the curtain on the singular artist David Beck: a master sculptor, carver, and miniature architect who works in a fantastical genre all his own, creating intricate worlds that are alive with magical and brilliant observations. His intricate, kinetic sculptures resemble objects within a dream - fanciful buildings and hollow animals containing detailed scenes rendered on a tiny scale. ... This documentary captures the artist at work in his studio and reflecting on his art. It is an intimate insight into what it takes to create a masterwork: extraordinary ideas, an almost eerie ability to focus on the work, and patience. Beck submits to the camera invasive scrutiny with a wit and charm that is both inviting and ambivalent. Ultimately, he comes across as the smartest, most creative artist you e never heard of"--Website
