Brand-new & terrific : Alex Katz in the 1950s by Alex Katz( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Coming of age as an artist in the 1950s, Alex Katz set out to reinvent representational painting by applying lessons learned from postwar abstraction. Initially, he struggled to find an audience, destroying hundreds of canvases. This book is the first survey of the artwork from this momentous decade, one in which Katz began to paint outdoors, innovated with collages, invented the cutout, and met Ada del Moro, his wife and muse. The authors consider how he and his peers borrowed from one another, leaning on photography and mining both nineteenth-century portraiture and other creative arts, and examine his conceptual investment in serial imagery. The result is a fascinating study of a young artist laying the groundwork for an astonishingly successful career, and a fresh look at the aesthetic exchanges among painters in and around the New York School
Experimental geography by Nato Thompson( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The manifestations of 'experimental geography' (a term coined by geographer Trevor Paglen in 2002) run the gamut of contemporary art practice today: sewn cloth cities that spill out of suitcases, bus tours through water treatment centers, performers climbing up the sides of buildings, and sound works capturing the buzz of electric waves on the power grid. In the hands of contemporary artists, the study of humanity's engagement with the earth's surface becomes a riddle best solved in experimental fashion. The exhibition presents a panoptic view of this new practice, through a wide range of mediums including sound and video installations, photography, sculpture, and experimental cartography. The approaches used by the artists featured in Experimental Geography range from the poetic to the empirical. The more pragmatic techniques include those used by the Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) in projects made with students and other non-art groups that aim to strengthen peoples' roles as agents of change in their own environments. See, for example, their map intended to help longshoremen and truckers identify chokepoints in the cargo trade network. In their similarly empirical projects, the Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI), a research organization, examines the nature and extent of human interaction with the earth's surface. CLUI embraces a multidisciplinary approach that forces a reading of the American landscape (such as the disfiguring effects of culling natural resources from the picturesque banks of the Hudson River), thereby refamiliarizing viewers with the overlooked details of their everyday experience."--Publisher's description
Alex Katz collages by David Cohen( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collages is the catalogue raisonne of Katzís early collages, spanning the period from 1954 to 1960. It presents 85 color plates with complete catalogue entries and an essay by Katz scholar David Cohen, critic for the New York Sun, publisher and editor of artcritical.com and curator at the New York Studio School. Cohenís essay argues that the collages are critical to an understanding of Katzís mature work and occupy a significant place within a history of Modernism. In these seminal works, Katz was already developing his unique artistic voice--a vocabulary of elemental forms, aesthetic efficiency and flat color

Marsden Hartley's Maine by Donna Cassidy( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marsden Hartley (1877-1943) was a well-traveled American modernist painter, poet, and essayist, but it is his life-long artistic engagement with his home state of Maine that defines his career. Maine served as a creative springboard, a locus of memory and longing, a refuge, and a means of communion with other artists, such as Winslow Homer, who painted there. This is the first book to look at the artist's complex relationship with the Pine Tree State, providing a nuanced understanding of Hartley's impressive range in over 80 works, from the early Post-Impressionist interpretations of seasonal change to the late depictions of Mount Katahdin, the most dramatic and enduring series in his oeuvre.

He has worked in nearly every mode of printmaking, including etching, screen-printing, lithography, and wood engraving. Frequently organized in serial groupings, Winters' prints display free floating cellular structures or clusters of spirals, knots, grids, and networks. His forcefully made works are rich in ambiguity and allusion. This book features fifty beautiful reproductions, accompanied by insightful texts and comparative paintings and drawings. The complete catalog of Winters' prints made between 1999 and 2014 is also included here, along with an essay by novelist and critic Francine Prose"--
