Magritte and photography by Patrick Roegiers ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Rene Magritte, the great Surrealist painter, begin experimenting with photography at an early age. While still a young student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels, he posed in a three piece suit, standing before his easel with brush and palette in hand - already projecting the carefully constructed image of the artist he wanted to become. His finely calibrated, bourgeois persona eventually entered into his own paintings, becoming a uniform image of the dark, dark-suited man with umbrella and hat. But it was in photographs that Magritte first incarnated the figure of himself as a great painter, instantly recognizable and before long, universally celebrated." "Magritte and Photography is an illuminating and enjoyable study of the ways in which the photographic medium played a constant role in Magritte's social and artistic life. Beginning with turn-of-the-century pictures of his parents and siblings, running through surrealist scenarios involving friends Louis Scutenaire and Paul Nouge, and ending with haunting portraits taken by Duane Michals, this volume explores both Magritte's life and his construction of it - though the camera lens."--BOOK JACKET

Views on Europe : Europe and German painting in the nineteenth century ( Book )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In a superb selection of over a hundred and fifty masterpieces, ranging from Neoclassicism and Romanticism to Realism, academic experts from three great institutions impressively show how the thread of Europe was woven into German art. They outline the wide variety of themes painters picked up from the European literature and political or intellectual debate of the time, the aspects and events they recorded as observers and chroniclers, and how the painters criss-crossed Europe in every direction - from the Nordic countries to Spain, and from Greece to Russia - absorbing artistic influences and making their own contribution abroad at the same time. German nineteenth-century art was European in the best sense. Over three hundred and eighty coloured illustrations in this volume illustrate the masterpieces of this multi-faceted period."--BOOK JACKET
The Great Workshop : pathways of art in Europe, 5th to 18th centuries ( Book )
3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Long before its emergence as a political entity, Europe was distinguished by its intense traffic in goods and people. Artist, art-lovers, and rich patrons made arduous journeys not only by road but also by river to far-flung locales as they sought to satisfy their appetite for beauty. This is the world of The Great Workshop, in which the editors develop a number of themes analyzing the circulation of art and the artistic community over a substantial geographic area ranging from Dublin to Palermo, from Cordoba to Stockholm, Rouen to Sofia. Short, focused essays treating the peregrinations of those conducting the business of art are crucial to our understanding of the migration of themes and formal motifs." "With its remarkable and often spectacular selections, The Great Workshop illustrates the complex web of European artistic exchange and production. The book contains 350 full-color examples from well over one hundred European collections and essays from distinguished art historians who elucidate a long stretch of art history from the fall of the Roman Empire to the birth of the first great museums of Europe."--BOOK JACKET

5 editions published in 1981 in German and English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Paul Klee : theater everywhere by Paul Klee ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The work of Paul Klee [1879-1940) was deeply influenced by his passion for the theater. Throughout his life the artist fervently attended theatrical performances, from the opera to puppet shows. Characters from plays or operas - Hamlet, Falstaff, and Don Giovanni, for example - populate his cryptic visual world. Various types of characters and theatrical elements, such as clowns and masks, were firmly established themes in his visual repertoire. Primarily, though, Klee created connections between the theater and life, taking up the topos of the world as a stage: people became actors or marionettes; theatrical events touched upon scenes from everyday life." "This publication sheds light on all of these aspects of Klee's fascination for the theater. A chronology gives a panoramic outline of his many experiences with the theater. Selected works by contemporary artists make it clear that Klee was not the only one fascinated with the sharp-eyed perception of theatrical situationsthe topic is one that continues to engage artists today."--BOOK JACKET

Jeff Wall : the crooked path by Jeff Wall ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The photography of Jeff Wall (born 1946) is consciously and profoundly saturated in the social: in the Vancouver art community from which he first emerged, fully formed, in the late 1970s; in the racial and gender politics of our times, which he analyses with marvelous clarity in his huge photographic light boxes that declare an equal status with painting through their scale and their carefully plotted depth and grandeur; in the art history pantheon that informs his staged compositions, from Hokusai to Velásquez and Manet; and in his influence on at least two generations of photographers, most notably the Düsseldorf school (Andreas Gursky once cited Wall as "a great model for me"). Jeff Wall: The Crooked Path examines the cultural context for Wall's tremendous achievement in photography. Wall himself has chosen 25 of his own photographs, taken between the late 1970s and the present, and has constellated them among the visionary company his work keeps, alongside reproductions of works by Marcel Duchamp, Diane Arbus, Eugene Atget, Wols, Andreas Gursky, David Claerbout, Thomas Struth, Frank Stella, Robert Smithson, Rodney Graham, Ian Wallace, Lawrence Wiener and R.W. Fassbinder. The Crooked Path orients Wall's photography across ten themed chapters, each of which is prefaced with an interview with Wall by Hans De Wolf. Also included are testimonies and essays by fellow artists and art historians, such as Luc Tuymans, Lawrence Weiner, Michael Fried and David Campany."--Amazon website

Sense of place : European landscape photography = Europäische Landschaftsfotografie ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This thought-provoking collection of superb photographic landscapes explores the connection between land and national identity. Is Europe a union in name only? How does the land we live on contribute to our culture? How does it divide or unite a collection of cultures? These important questions are at the root of this pictorial examination of Europe's heterogeneous landscape. This book brings together images from 27 European Union nations and from prominent artists such as Olafur Eliasson (Denmark), Andreas Gursky (Germany), Carl De Keyzer (Belgium), Massimo Vitali (Italy), and Celine Clanet (France). The book shows how landscape photography in particular offers critical insights into the characteristics of a place, inviting viewers, through a subjective lens, to form their own feelings toward that place. Organized into three broad geographic zones, it offers exquisite depictions of Europe's wonderfully varied geography -- shorelines and fjords, mountains and plains, farmland and urban centers -- as it seeks to understand the source of the continent's diversity and unity."--Publisher's website
