Anselm Kiefer by Daniel Arasse( Book )

22 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 973 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anselm Kiefer (b. 1945) is one of the most important and controversial artists of the twentieth century. This book, the first to analyze the essence of his work, begins with Kiefer's arrival on the international art scene at the 1980 Venice Biennale, when he sparked heated debate and controversy over the "Germanity" of his pieces. Since that time, through such diverse mediums as painting, gouache and watercolor, photography, artist's books, engravings, installations, and sculpture, Kiefer has created a body of work that is protean, theatrical, monumental, or intimate, depending on the period. He has interpreted the great political and cultural issues at the heart of the modern European sensibility: the connections among memory, history, and mythology; war; the Holocaust; and ethnic and national identity."--Jacket

Discussing these and other aspects of Vermeer's art, Arasse locates the painter's genius in the reflexive, meditative nature of his works, each of which seems to be a painting about painting. From these perspectives Arasse brings new insight in particular to two paintings that have long puzzled scholars: The Art of Painting and Allegory of Faith
Take a closer look by Daniel Arasse( Book )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What happens when we look at a painting? What do we think about? What do we imagine? How can we explain, even to ourselves, what we see or think we see? And how can art historians interpret with any seriousness what they observe? In six engaging, short narrative "fictions," each richly illustrated in color, Daniel Arasse, one of the most brilliant art historians of our time, cleverly and gracefully guides readers through a variety of adventures in seeing, from Velázquez to Titian, Bruegel to Tintoretto. By demonstrating that we don't really see what these paintings are trying to show us, Arasse makes it clear that we need to take a closer look. In chapters that each have a different form, including a letter, an interview, and an animated conversation with a colleague, the book explores how these pictures teach us about ways of seeing across the centuries. In the process, Arasse freshly lays bare the dazzling power of painting. Fast-paced and full of humor as well as insight, this is a book for anyone who cares about really looking at, seeing, and understanding paintings."--Publisher's description

9 editions published between 1975 and 2004 in French and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: One of Modern Library's 100 Best Nonfiction Books of the Twentieth Century. In this classic study of how people learned to retain vast stores of knowledge before the invention of the printed page, Frances A. Yates traces the art of memory from its treatment by Greek orators, through its Gothic transformations in the Middle Ages, to the occult forms it took in the Renaissance, and finally to its use in the seventeenth century. This book, the first to relate the art of memory to the history of culture as a whole, was revolutionary when it first appeared and continues to mesmerize readers with its lucid and revelatory insights

Anselm Kiefer by Anselm Kiefer( Book )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans cette monographie, l'unique consacrée à ce jour à Anselm Kiefer, Daniel Arasse s'applique à démontrer le processus de sédimentation, de réélaboration de thèmes qui circulent, s'entrecroisent et se superposent en un véritable "labyrinthe kieferien". La dimension historique et politique de l'oeuvre de Kiefer passionne Arasse et plus particulièrement son statut d'artiste allemand né avant l'achèvement de la guerre. 0Position à laquelle l'artiste consacra une rare énergie afin de démêler l'écheveau consistant à analyser les possibilités de l'acte de créer après l'holocauste. Car à l'instar d'autres artistes allemands mais avec davantage de conscience et d'obstination, Kiefer a questionné son héritage de peintre en révélant les éléments iconographiques et mythologiques de la culture allemande
De la représentation by Louis Marin( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in French and Undetermined and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'oeuvre de Louis Marin se compose de deux ensembles très différents dans leur style comme dans leur circulation. D'une part, une série de grands livres dont certains ont connu, fort tôt, une réputation internationale. De l'autre, quelque trois cents articles qui témoignent des cheminements de sa recherche et de son enseignement, de la diversité aussi des domaines dans lesquels son travail s'est déployé. Ils explorent en tous sens le " corpus " esthétique, théologique et politique de l'âge classique, à la lumière des débats épistémologiques et philosophiques nés dans les " années structuralistes ", puis reformulés en profondeur après elles. Voici donc une réflexion, entre lire et voir, sur la représentation. De la fable au récit, de la carte au tableau, l'analyse pointe les limites de la représentation, là où la voix s'énonce, là où le cadre découpe, là où la représentation s'institue de ces marges : c'est à l'arpentage de ces failles que ces textes nous invitent
