ManRay : photography and its double by Man Ray( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and French and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Man Ray (1890-1976), was one of the co-founders of New York Dada. When he arrived in Paris in the 1920s he was already friends with Duchamp and many Parisian Surrealists, who welcomed him with great enthusiasm. He is unquestionably recognized as the most original photographer of our century. With his photographs, Rayographs, solarizations, and various experimentation with Surrealist doctrines in the darkroom, his photographic contribution to art and especially surrealism is matchless. Thanks to his famous portraits of contemporaries - artists, writers and celebrities - he also became the most notable chronicler of the inter-national Avant-garde movement of the 1920s and 1930s. This remarkable monograph published to coincide with the historic exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, is entirely dedicated to Man Ray's photographic oeuvre. The Centre Pompidou is the recipient of the Man Ray archives - some 13,000 negatives and 5,000 prints - which reveal for the very first time never before published photographs (a great amount consisting of erotic compositions). One-third of these photographs have never been seen. Not only the finished photos, but also the process - crops, background manipulation and other methods. The book with its new images presents for the very first time a true picture of the artist, and a vital addition to the many publications about Man Ray that appeared throughout this century, many of which are long out of print. This monograph is a must for Man Ray experts, for those interested in photography, and a wonderful introduction to students and others not yet sufficiently familiar with Man Ray's work
Brassaï : the monograph by Brassaï( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here are Brassai's iconic scenes of nocturnal Paris with its prostitutes and thugs, its night workers, cafes, dance halls, and theaters; here are the fog-shrouded streets, monuments, and bridges; and here is the literary and artistic elite of the Parisian avant-garde, whom Brassai counted among his friends. Alongside these images, and providing a deeper understanding of his working method, are many previously unpublished contact prints and variations of familiar shots taken from a different angle, differently framed, or as part of a sequence that constitutes a veritable short story on film. Beyond these, there are examples of Brassai's nude studies and magnifications of commonplace objects, the engraved photographic plates that he called "transmutations," his drawings and sculpted pebbles, the graffiti he found so fascinating - indeed, everything to which he turned his imaginative mind throughout a long, productive life." "With the close cooperation of Mme. Gilberte Brassai, the artist's widow, and with the support of Jean-Jacques Aillagon, president of the Centre Pomidou, and of Werner Spies, director of the Musee National d'Art Moderne in Paris, Alain Sayag and Annick Lionel-Marie have succeeded in producing the definitive summary of this important oeuvre. As an extra dimension, the book includes penetrating excerpts from the writings of Brassai himself and of his friends and admirers Henry Miller, Jacques Prevert, and Roger Grenier; an interview with Gilberte Brassai and a biography compiled by her; and an extensive bibliography and list of exhibitions."--Jacket

Pierre Paulin : life and work by Nadine Descendre( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Playfully rejecting the orderly restraint of midcentury design, the French avant-garde designer and architect Pierre Paulin (1927 2009) imagined sleek departure lounges for the jet set, perfume bottles for Courreges, and unforgettable Pop-era pieces like the Orange Slice chair, the shell-shaped Oyster chair, and the Tongue, a wavy, low-slung chaise. Paulin s signature innovation was to wrap his pieces in colorful stretch jersey, softening them and concealing their inner steel and wood. In their casual, kinetic sprawl, his chairs not only offered an invitation to relax and lounge; they also took the temperature of Paris in the late 1960s. Fascinated by the possibilities of new materials, Paulin was both a modernist and a traditionalist, a designer who took equal care designing ordinary objects such as fans, razors, and fondue pots as he did outfitting the private quarters of French presidents Pompidou and Mitterand. This vibrantly illustrated book draws from previously unpublished archives a wealth of vivid drawings, models, and photographs to reveal the restless energy of this midcentury icon, whose works are finding new popularity today

6 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet ouvrage est publié à l'occasion des expositions "Le Festin de l'art" et "Manger des yeux" présentée à Dinard au Palais des arts et à la Villa Les Roches Brunes, du 7 juin au 7 septembre 2014.00La relation intime entre l'art et la nourriture est historiquement enracinée. Les artistes n'ont cessé de s'intéresser aux aliments et à leurs représentations, ainsi qu'à l'évocation de leur consommation - individuelle ou collective. Le Festin de l'art, première des deux expositions présentées à Dinard, souligne l'intérêt persistant, parfois fidèle à des traditions antérieures, souvent innovant, de la création contemporaine pour les aliments, les mets, la table et la cuisine. La seconde, Manger des yeux, explore la question de la mise en scène de la nourriture à des fins de présentation, parfois de promotion, par les chefs cuisiniers qui l'ont confectionnée et par les photographes culinaires qui se sont spécialisés dans la représentation de leurs créations

Trônes en majesté : l'autorité et son symbole by Jacques Charles-Gaffiot( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Entre sobriété et majesté, mesure et démesure, le trône puise toujours à la même symbolique : celle de l'autorité assise . Pour la première fois, dans le décor somptueux du château de Versailles, lieu par excellence de l'exercice et de la représentation de la souveraineté, une exposition réunit des trônes venus du monde entier. Ce livre permet d'en mieux comprendre le modèle symbolique, dans ses dimensions politique, universitaire, économique et religieuse. Au point de départ de ce parcours historique et artistique, une évidence : la souveraineté fait toujours intervenir deux notions distinctes, l'autorité et la puissance. Tandis que la puissance, éphémère et difficilement acquise, reste un attribut fragile et sans cesse menacé, l'autorité assure à son titulaire la pérennité de son pouvoir et une estime universelle : elle l' assied, inspirant une obéissance qui vaut reconnaissance de légitimité. Muni de ses attributs essentiels gradin, dais et marchepied, le trône se pare aussi d'un bestiaire fantastique et imaginaire, peuplé de lions ailés, de chimères et de fabuleux dragons. Sur le siège ainsi décoré apparaît la majestueuse autorité qui toujours se révèle sous les traits d'un personnage assis. À la découverte de ces trônes, stables ou mobiles, simples ou fastueux, objets de déférence ou de dérision, un enseignement finira par sourdre de ces lignes, à destination des maîtres de ce monde, souverains ou chefs d'État, édiles ou magistrats : conserver le pouvoir ne peut s'opérer qu'à l'aune de la leçon que nous dispense l'étude de ces fascinants emblèmes."
