Matisse : in search of true painting by Dorthe Aagesen( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout his long career, Henri Matisse (1869-1954) continually expanded the boundaries of his art. By repeating images in pairs, trios, and series, he conducted an ongoing dialogue with his earlier works in order to, as he put it, "push further and deeper into true painting." In this fresh approach to a much-studied artist, prominent scholars from the United States and Europe examine more than sixty works in concise chapters that focus on this aspect of Matisse's working process. From early pairs such as Young Sailor I and II (1906) and Le Lexe I and II (1907-8) through a series of late studio scenes from Vence (1946-48), Matisse is shown revisiting a given theme with the aim of devising innovative, often radical, solutions to such problems as how to portray light, handle paint, select colors, and manipulate perspective. New technical studies of the early paired works and photographs documenting the evolution of his later paintings help to elucidate Matisse's complex evolution. In numerous excerpts from letters and interviews, he is revealed as an artist who regularly questioned himself and his methods, a man of powerful intellect who regarded each new painting as an adventure. A significant addition to art historical literature, Matisse: In Search of True Painting is a revelatory study of a seminal figure in 20th-century modernism."--Page 4 of cover
Hammershøi and Europe by Kasper Monrad( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A comprehensive study of the great Danish painter, this monograph places Hammershøi within the context of his European contemporaries. This generously illustrated volume examines Hammershøi's work as a whole and in relation to the artists of his generation. Hammershøi's enigmatic paintings, with their rich and muted palettes, have always enjoyed enormous popularity in Scandinavia, and recently his work has received renewed attention across the globe. Thematically arranged, this volume includes beautiful reproductions and essays that focus on Hammershøi's isolated private life and travels; his time in London and Germany; and comparisons between him and such notable painters as Seurat, Gauguin, and Whistler. Fans of this remarkable painter, and anyone interested in modern art, will enjoy this celebration of Hammershøi as a part of the pantheon of great European painters."--Publisher's website
A mirror of nature : Nordic landscape painting 1840-1910 by Torsten Gunnarsson( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Asger Jorn : restless rebel by Asger Jorn( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of the internationally acclaimed artist Asger Jorn (1914-1973) has been exhibited throughout the world. Jorn was one of the originators of the international artists' association Cobra, which rebelled against conventional art and fought for a free expression of creativity. He was central to the European development of abstract painting and politically active throughout his life. This lavishly illustrated volume addresses the contradictions in Jorn's oeuvre as part of a deliberate artistic strategy; it presents the heterogeneity of his artistic project
Danh Vo : take my breath away by Danh Vo( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Danh Vo's conceptual, installation-based practice dissects the cultural forces and private desires that shape our experience of the world. He often employs found objects, images and texts to animate personal narratives that refract global political histories. Published to accompany the most comprehensive museum survey to date of the Danish artist's work, this catalog presents for the first time an illuminating overview of Vo's work from the past 15 years. Organized around nearly 30 major projects and installations, the volume ranges from Vo's early performative works such as Vo Rosasco Rasmussen (2003), in which he married and divorced acquaintances in order to add their surnames to his own, to his recent sculptural hybrids of classical and Christian statuary. A lead essay by Katherine Brinson probes the artist's roving, research-based process in which historical study, fortuitous encounters and personal relationships are woven into psychologically potent tableaux. Significant recurring subjects include the legacy of colonialism and the fraught status of the refugee, as well as the image of the United States in its own collective imagination and in that of the world

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japanomania in the Nordic countries, 1875-1918( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This extensive publication, complete with hundreds of illustrations by such renowned artists as Carl Larsson, Edvard Munch, Vilhelm Hammershoi, Pekka Halonen, Akseli Gallen-Kallela, Christopher Dresser, Pietro Krohn, Alf Wallander, and Frida Hansen, among others, offers an unprecedented study of Japanese influence on the visual arts in the Nordic countries. This unlikely diffusion of Japanese culture, known collectively as Japonisme, became increasingly apparent in England, France, and elsewhere in Europe during the 19th century, although nowhere was the influence seemingly as pervasive as it was throughout the Nordic countries. The book reveals how the widespread interest in Japanese aesthetics helped to establish notions of a fundamental unity between the arts and transformed the region's visual vocabulary. The adoption of Japanese motifs and styles in Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark provided a necessary cohesion to their existing artistic language, forming a vital balance within and among all of the applied arts"--Publisher

On the trail of Bosch and Bruegel : four paintings united under cross-examination( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is part of a pan-European research project investigating four Netherlandish paintings from the 16th century, all depicting Christ Driving the Traders from the Temple, and presently in the collections of the Kadriorg Art Museum, Tallinn; National Gallery of Denmark, Copenhagen; Glasgow Museums, and in a private collection. This publication presents the first results of the technical investigation, multispectral analysis and art historical research. The four paintings examined are alike yet different with echoes of Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegel the Elder. The research project addresses an under-investigated part of 16th- and 17th-century Netherlandish art production that reuses popular imagery from the time of Hieronymus Bosch. The paintings represent four versions of Christ Driving the Traders from the Temple that follow religious and cultural traditions and were made with different purposes, answering to the demands of a booming 16th-century Antwerp art market
Bob Dylan, the Brazil series by Bob Dylan( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in Danish and English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bob Dylan has been a prolific graphic artist since the 1960s, and his graphic art is marked by the same constant drive for renewal that characterises his music. Never content to remain static in a single form of expression that he has already cultivated, he is constantly experimenting and testing new artistic techniques and expressions. This book of the exhibition at the National Gallery of Denmark encompasses some 100 works, including completely new works to be seen in public for the first time. Bob Dylan has recently delved into painting in acrylic, and the exhibition is the first to document this new direction in the artist's work, showing larger format paintings alongside drawings. Dylan's works are often created during his exhaustive touring, and his motifs bear corresponding imprints of the environments and people that he crosses in his life. As a graphic artist he functions as a phenomenal observer who depicts the immediately banal and everyday facets of life in such a way that they appear fresh and new for the viewer
