Most widely held works by Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts
Alberto Giacometti in postwar Paris by Michael Peppiatt( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alberto Giacometti, one of the foremost artists of the twentieth century, created sculptures and paintings of stark and haunting beauty. Now, in the one hundredth anniversary of his birth, this book celebrates his genius, tracing his development from the tiny sculptures he made during World War II to the characteristically emaciated figures of his mature style." "Michael Peppiatt gives an account of the crucial moment when Giacometti returned from his wartime exile in Geneva to his beloved Paris, a city traumatized by the war but receptive to new movements and ideas. He describes how Giacometti's way of seeing life - and his way of working - underwent several dramatic transformations during this period." "This book is the catalogue for an exhibition to be held at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts in Norwich, England, and at the Fondation de l'Hermitage in Lausanne, Switzerland."--Jacket

Pacific encounters : art & divinity in Polynesia, 1760-1860 by Steven Hooper( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pacific Encounters brings together for the first time many stunning Polynesian objects collected by voyagers and missionaries during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries." "Illustrated are over 270 items gathered from the major regions of Polynesia. Many are from the British Museum, which houses fine and rare material from the expeditions of Captain Cook, Captain Vancouver and members of the London Missionary Society. Ranging from massive images of gods to small fish hooks, they are discussed in the contexts of their local use and meanings, and their journeys to museums all over the world. These pieces have remarkable stories to tell of encounters between humans and their gods, between Polynesians and Europeans, their respective chiefs and priests, beliefs and technologies."--BOOK JACKET
