5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Insightful and opinionated, erudite and amusing, this collection by the author of A Life of Picasso is a marvelously eclectic mix of essays on artists and writers, tastemakers and tycoons. These pieces, each illustrated with a photograph or artwork, were selected by the author because they are about people he has known or would like to have known - or simply because their subjects' genius or quirkiness particularly intrigued him."--BOOK JACKET
Lucian Freud portraits by Sarah Howgate ( Book )
5 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Portraits were central to the work of Lucian Freud (1922-2011). Working only from life, the artists claimed, "I could never put anything into a picture that wasn't actually there in front of me." This major retrospective catalogue surveys Freud's portraits across the seven decades of his career. Featuring the finest portraits from public and private collections around the world, the book explores the stylistic development and remarkable technical virtuosity of an artist regarded as one of the most innovative figurative painters the medium has known. Freud's chosen subjects were often his intimates--family members, friends, and artistic colleagues such as Frank Auerbach, Francis Bacon, Leigh Bowery, and David Hockney. Freud was a private man who rarely gave interviews, and his thoughts on the complex relationship between artist and sitter and the challenges of painting nudes and self-portraits are published here for the first time, documented in a series of interviews with Michael Auping, conducted between May 2009 and January 2011. An illustrated chronology of the artist's life provides fascinating insights into Freud's background as a grandson of Sigmund Freud, and his unorthodox artistic education

Georges Braque : a life by Alex Danchev ( Book )
11 editions published between 1959 and 1961 in English and Undetermined and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A pioneer of modern art and founder of Cubism, Georges Braque was one of the most important artists of the twentieth century. Yet, until now, the full story of his life has remained untold." "In this first full-length biography, Alex Danchev draws on a wealth of new sources to reveal a man who ushered in one of the greatest revolutions in art since the Renaissance." "Braque devoted his life to pushing the boundaries of the possible. Art critic Louis Vauxcelles coined the term Cubism while appraising Braque's landmark 1908 painting, Houses at L'Estaque, which Matisse later christened "really the first picture constituting the origin of Cubism." A few years later, in 1912, Braque pioneered the collage as fine art with the groundbreaking Fruit Dish and Glass. An internationally renowned painter, he was also a highly accomplished poet and philosopher - praised by Sartre and Heidegger. Braque also fought bravely in World War I. At the Battle of Somme, he sustained a serious skull fracture and nearly died." "But it was Braque's partnership with Picasso that bore the richest fruit and has become the stuff of legend. Lifelong friends and rivals, the two men assessed each other's work at every step, forging an artistic association that was intimate, intense, and profoundly influential. Together they struck down linear perspective, infusing art with a new freedom and excitement." "In this biography, Danchev explores Braque's creativity, examines his personal and professional relationships - with Beckett, Cezanne, Giacometti, Matisse, and Miro, among others - and enriches our understanding of an extraordinary fertile period in art history. Braque emerges as a bold innovator, a revolutionary genius, and a towering figure of modern art."--BOOK JACKET
