J.W. Waterhouse : the modern Pre-Raphaelite by John William Waterhouse ( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This survey presents the work of John William Waterhouse (1849-1917), one of Britain's best-loved nineteenth-century painters. Although Waterhouse's compelling scenes are admired worldwide, the story of the man behind them is relatively little known. In these pages, he emerges as the 'modern Pre-Raphaelite', steeped in the colourful emotionalism of Rossetti, Millais and Holman Hunt, but also aware of exciting pictorial innovations that were taking place in France during the later nineteenth century." "Capturing the visual impact of the artist's richly coloured and seductive canvases, this book explores Waterhouse's particular vision of femininity. Especially significant to him were the intense passions celebrated by Homer and Ovid in their retellings of classical myths, by Shakespeare, and by Tennyson and Keats in Romantic verse. His engagement with these poets is revealed in such magnificent pictures as The Lady of Shalott, St Cecilia, Hylas and the Nymphs and A Mermaid." "Sumptuously illustrated and with contributions from leading authorities on Victorian art, this book places Waterhouse's renowned paintings in their proper context and demonstrates his distinctive role in the history of British art."--BOOK JACKET
New world order : contemporary installation art and photography from China ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"How contemporary Chinese art relates to this new reality in China full of contrasts and unremitting change is the rationale behind New World Order. How do Chinese artists react in their work to the explosive growth of the cities, the emerging consumer society and the new freedom of choice? How do they make use of famed Chinese craftsmanship and what role is played by cultural tradition and former Communist propaganda and symbolism?" "This richly illustrated publication presents installation art and staged photography by a number of artists. In addition, Carol Yingua Lu's essay shows how the Chinese themselves view the current developments that are causing turmoil in the Chinese art world."--BOOK JACKET
Writing on the wall : Chinese new realism and avant-garde in the eighties and nineties ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Writing on the Wall provides a fascinating overview of the work of the most important Chinese modern artists from the 1980s and the 1990s. Internationally renowned authors Thomas Berghuis, Francesca Dal Lago and Eduardo Welsh shed light on the effects of these different movements in this crucial period in the development of Chinese modern art."--BOOK JACKET

The impact of a genius : Rembrandt, his pupils and followers in the seventeenth century : paintings from museums and private collections by Albert Blankert ( Book )
2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hussein Chalayan by Hussein Chalayan ( Book )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
If mid-1990s British fashion conjurs up images of vicious or tricksy tailoring and sexually-charged power-dressing, Chalayan represents its more gentle, cerebral side. The Turkish-Cypriot-born designer's clothing is highly modern, delicately feminine and about as close to pure as it is possible for fashion to be. --The Independent, London While most fashion designers seem to focus mainly on glamour, Hussein Chalayan's work is conceptual, often political in nature, and inspired by subjects like science--DNA strands, archaeology, the impending extinction of wildlife--sculpture, technology, and architectural theories. (In one of his most famous collections, chairs and tables were transformed into garments on the runway.) Through his compelling originality, unusual approach to design, beautifully tailored clothing, and innovative use of fabrics, Chalayan has garnered a loyal following of celebrity fans like Madonna, Sofia Coppola, and Björk. Hussein Chalayan celebrates the designer's 10th anniversary, and is the first in-depth monograph of his work. If mid-1990s British fashion conjures up images of vicious or tricksy tailoring and sexually charged power-dressing, Chalayan represents its more gentle, cerebral side. The Turkish-Cypriot-born designer's clothing is highly modern, delicately feminine and about as close to pure as it is possible for fashion to be. --"Britains Top Fashionistas," The Independent, London, September 2004. "I wanted it to be like a document . . . for each garment to have a life of its own. I felt that the way to do that was to create a mini history with the garments. It was like an archaeological dig in a way, but of our own repertoire as well as references that are more obviously historical, like the Edwardian top of a 1960s dress. After layering it all up, we then cut it away which, in itself, I think, created some kind of life." --Hussein Chalayan on his Fall, 2003 line Paperback, 8.5 x 11 in./240 pgs / 150 color

Painting Canada : Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven by Tom Thomson ( Book )
3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Dutch and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In early twentieth-century Toronto, Canada, the first stirrings of a new movement of painting were being felt. A group of artists started to engage with the awesome Canadian wilderness, a landscape previously considered too wild and untamed to inspire true art. Leading the way was Tom Thomson. In little more than three years of electrifying creativity before his premature death in 1917 he formulated an artistic language that captured the unique qualities of the Canadian landscape. Three years later his friends--Lawren Harris, J.E.H. MacDonald, Arthur Lismer, Frederick Varley, Frank Johnston, Franklin Carmichael and A.Y. Jackson--formed the Group of Seven. They built on Thomson's legacy to produce a landscape style that to this day influences the way Canadians visualise their country, and their paintings are national icons in Canada. This book tells of the Group's collective quest to depict Canada in paint. It recounts their beginnings, the challenges they faced and the remarkable and often extreme journeys they undertook in search of new subject matter. Essays explore the artists' relationship with the Arctic north, and analyse Thomson's art through the prism of the prevalent scientific theories of the day. A fresh, European perspective on these Canadians is offered in essays exploring their links with Scandinavian art and European expressionism. Beautifully illustrated with over 120 colour reproductions of their work, and maps indicating the geographical range covered by this selection of paintings, this book offers an insight into the history of this important--yet little-known in Europe--artistic movement."--Publisher's website

Nordic art : the modern breakthrough 1860-1920 by David Jackson ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries marked a defining moment in Nordic art. From the cozy domestic landscapes of Carl Larsson to Edvard Munch's darkly beautiful The Scream, the diverse artwork of the period mirrored shifting literary and intellectual pursuits in their attempts to broaden the cultural conversation to incorporate the identities and traditions of the region. Through more than two hundred paintings, Nordic Art tells the story of this important period. In conversation with both Scandinavian culture and the contemporary art of the time, turn-of-the-century artists developed distinctly Nordic interpretations of realism, impressionism, and symbolism. The book focuses on the transitions between these forms of expression, as well as the impact of Nordic art on mainstream European art. Featuring works by well-known artists, including Carl Larsson, Edvard Munch, Akseli Gallen-Kallela, and Vilhelm Hammershøi, the book also introduces artists from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, and Finland whose contributions, though crucial, may be less familiar to international audiences. With Nordic Art, David Jackson offers the first comprehensive look at this critical period of cultural development in the Nordic countries and the extraordinary art that arose during this time."--Publisher's website

Ai Weiwei by Weiwei Ai ( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ai Weiwei's work is an audacious blend of old and new, Western and Eastern, serious and irreverent. He has translated the readymade into a new artistic language, fusing neolithic pottery, fourteenth-century doors and seventeenth-century temple beams into surprising, at times shocking sculptures. He has documented his disdain for authority by giving the finger to the Tiananmen in Beijing, the Reichstag in Berlin and the White House in Washington (Study of Perspective, 1993-2005). And he has captured the mundane urban sprawl of his home city in a 150-hour video (Beijing 2003, 2003) that even dwarfs Andy Warhol's notorious eight-hour Empire. Ai Weiwei grew up on the edge of the Gobi desert in China's Western provinces. In the late 1970s he moved to Beijing, banding together with other pro-democracy artists in a loose collective know as the Stars group. In 1981, following government retaliation against their exhibitions, he moved to New York, where he attended art school and lived for twelve years, eventually returning to China when his father fell ill in 1993. Settling in Beijing, Ai became a rallying figure in a burgeoning new art scene. Taking up his art in earnest, he also emerged as a surprising and celebrated architect. (In addition to his numerous commissions for buildings in Beijing and beyond, he provided Swiss architects Herzog & De Meuron with the inspiration for their celebrated Beijing National Stadium, home to the 2008 Olympics.) What marks Ai as a truly twenty-first-century artist is precisely this multiplicity of roles: not just artist, designer and architect, but also curator, publisher, Web blogger and compass for an entire generation of Beijing artists. His outsize public persona is an integral part of his art. Although his outspoken views have brought him unwanted attention from the State, they have also generated excitement far beyond China's borders. His work has been increasingly featured in the world's most significant exhibitions, including Ducumenta 12 (2007), the 5th Asia-Pacific Triennial (2007) and the 15 Biennale of Sydney (2006), in the process providing the world with a inside view into one of the most exciting new art scenes. Karen Smith's Survey traces the artist's remarkable career from his early days in Beijing to his discovery of the Western avant-garde in New York and his recent emergence as a celebrated sculptor and architect. In the Interview Hans Ulrich Obrist discusses with the artist his father's artistic training and subsequent exile and the effects they had on his own views on art and authority. Bernard Fibicher's Focus looks at the monumental light sculpture Descending Light (2007). Artist's Choice features a poem by Ai Qing, one of China's most important twentieth-century writers. Artist's Writings include entries from Ai's blog, seen by millions of visitors each year and celebrated for its thoughtful and candid remarks on the subjects of art, politics and culture
