"One of the most versatile artists of the modern era, Isamu Noguchi explored many areas of art and design. Both Isamu Noguchi: Master Sculptor and the exhibition of the same name, which this book accompanies, focus on his sculpture as the nexus of his creativity. From the late 1920s through the mid-1980s, Noguchi changed direction frequently and delighted in exploring diametrically opposed ideas and styles."--Jacket
Picasso : the cubist portraits of Fernande Olivier by Jeffrey S Weiss( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between spring and winter 1909, Picasso executed more than sixty portraits of his companion, Fernande Olivier. In their tenacious pursuit of a single subject, these works reveal a level of experimentation that stands out in the history of portraiture. Even more significant, the Fernande series coincided with the invention of cubism. Published to accompany a major exhibition originating at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, this richly illustrated volume illuminates Picasso's radical reformulation of human physiognomy." "Containing eighty-two color illustrations and sixty-eight duo-tones, the catalogue explores the Fernande portraits and related works as a single oeuvre culminating in the magnificent Head of a Woman (Fernande) - one of Picasso's rare pre-1912 excursions into sculpture. By so doing, it allows us to examine Picasso's process in an unprecedented fashion. What emerges is a new picture of the artist developing a single portrait motif with obsessive repetition and struggling to resolve artistic problems during a time of crisis in his work. Also included are studio photographs that offer further insight into the conceptual nature of the artist's process. The next narrates the internal development of the Fernande portrait series, with particular emphasis on the sculpted Head, and relates it to other themes, including likeness, serial repetition, and the history of melancholy. The book also addresses the complex nature of Picasso's interest in the work of Paul Cezanne."--Jacket

Marvelous objects : surrealist sculpture from Paris to New York by Valerie J Fletcher( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book delineates a dialogue between the two dominant modes of sculpture that evolved in tandem within the surrealist movement - found-object assemblages and nature-inspired biomorphism. The book offers a continuous narrative of contributions by both European and American surrealist artists from the early 1920s through the late 1940s. Artists from France, Germany, Britain, Spain, Switzerland, and the United States established Surrealism as transnational from the outset. Key artists who incorporated found objects in their works include Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Salvador Dali, Hans Bellmer, and Joseph Cornell. The biomorphists encompass Jean Arp, Max Ernst, Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Isamu Noguchi. In addition, Alberto Giacometti, Alexander Calder and David Smith, are highlighted for their game-changing innovations that influenced the evolution of modern sculpture. Nearly two hundred illustrations and a selection of historical texts accompany the insightful essay and chronology by Valerie J. Fletcher. Fans of Surrealism and those new to the genre will appreciate this book's in-depth approach to its innovative and influential three-dimensional masterpieces.--From publisher

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Presenting both indoor and outdoor work, this volume examines the depth and breadth of George Rickey's sculptural oeuvre between 1950 and 2000 and its place in the history of American art. Trained originally as a painter, George Rickey turned to sculpture in 1949. In 1964 his kinetic piece Two Lines Temporal "established him internationally as a major figure in the history of kinetic sculpture," according to art historian Nan Rosenthal. In 1966 he gave up teaching to devote himself entirely to his creative work. The recipient of 10 honorary doctorate degrees and many awards and honors, George Rickey built a stellar career as an exhibiting artist, author, and professor of art in the U.S. and abroad."--Amazon
