Raven travelling : two centuries of Haida art ( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The core of this powerful assemblage is an exploration of the extraordinary achievement of Haida art, as art. Interwoven throughout the text and the finely reproduced images is a skillful intermingling of key themes: the defining myths of origins; the structures of ownership and privilege; the relationship of the people to the land; the influence of the early master-carvers; the monumental achievements of Charles Edenshaw, Bill Reid, Robert Davidson, and many others; the Haida and colonialism; and hybrid tendencies in contemporary Haida art. From oral histories and genealogies to the breakout aesthetics of contemporary Haida work in many media, this book celebrates a great art in a contemporary context."--Publisher's website

"Complementing the essays are more than 300 images printed in full colour or in halftones. Among them are artworks from the 1927 Exhibition of Canadian West Coast Art: Native and Modern and photographs, films, tourist brochures, and maps documenting the British Columbia of Carr's day. However, it is the art that dominates, with over 150 paintings, drawings, and caricatures, as well as rugs and pottery by Emily Carr in addition to works by contemporary colleagues."--BOOK JACKET

Andreas Gursky : Werke 80-08 = works 80-08 : Kunstmuseen Krefeld, Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Vancouver Art Gallery by Andreas Gursky ( Book )
6 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in German and English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Andreas Gursky (*1955 inLeipzig ) has ranked for many years among the world's leading photographic artists. Now, for the first time ever, an attempt is being made to unfurl the artist's oeuvre in all its encyclopedic glory. Gursky has selected over 150 images from his pool of photographs, reaching back in time to his student days at the Folkwang Hochschule Essen, followed by the period in which he was in the class taught by Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. Beginning with the earliest exposures, such as the Desk Attendants and other unpublished photographs, the publication describes an enormous trajectory that takes us to his most recent works, which were conceived especially for this monograph. Every single exposure in Gursky's encyclopedic morphology is a vital piece in the puzzle, which over some twenty-eight years has opened out into a sweeping view of the world
