Alice Neel : painted truths by Alice Neel ( Book )
6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume presents a survey of the works of American artist Alice Neel (1900-1984). Neel became known for her oil on canvas portraits of friends, family, lovers, poets, artists and strangers. Her paintings are notable for their expressionistic use of line and color, psychological acumen, and emotional intensity. She was unique for her time because she was a portrait painter at a time when this was traditionally the role of a male artist. Although the book focuses on her portraits, it also covers the artist's early social realist paintings and cityscapes, tracing the evolution of Neel's style and examining themes that she revisited throughout her career
Ben Nicholson by Ben Nicholson ( Book )
42 editions published between 1987 and 1997 in 5 languages and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Romantic, classical, baroque, naive, primitive, abstract, surrealist, mechanistic, modernist, English and international are adjectives which have, at various times, been applied to the art of Ben Nicholson. The variety of expression he achieved throughout a long career stemmed from a lively and daring mind, which gave rise to an art of intense human interest as well as great sensitivity and precision. In the 1930s Nicholson was a pivotal figure in the Parisian and London avant-garde, and in the 1950s he was hailed by international critics and curators as one the leading artists of his generation. Friend of Braque, Helion, Gabo, Arp, Calder, Giacometti and Mondrian, Nicholson was the primary force behind the emergence of geometric abstraction in England and its alliance with contemporary architecture. His sense of structure, his response to the environment and his treatment of light and colour all had a far-reaching impact on British art. Nicholson is one of the greatest English artists of this century. This catalogue, published to accompany the major exhibition of his work held at the Tate Gallery, sheds new light on his achievements and his life. All the works in the exhibition are described and analysed and there are ten essays on different aspects of Nicholson's art, each of which draws upon new material and brings a new understanding to his work. A detailed chronology charts the ups and downs of Nicholson's life and progress through two world wars and three marriages, while an extensive bibliography provides an invaluable tool for further research

Interpreting Pollock by Jeremy Lewison ( Book )
8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume examines the nature of American abstract expressionist artist Jackson Pollock's (1912-1956) paintings. The author discusses Pollock's rivalry with Picasso, the impact of Jung, the meanings embedded within Pollock's works, the context in which they were seen and the mythology which surrounds Pollock's persona. Pollock abandoned the tradition of easel painting and executed his paintings on the floor, some on a monumental scale. He developed a way of working in which he poured, dripped or splashed the paint onto the canvas, allowing the pull of gravity to play a full part in the execution of the work. Walking around the painting, at times standing on it, Pollock became immersed in the act of painting. The source of his art, he claimed, was the unconscious. Pollock's radical approach to abstract painting was underscored, however, by a residual interest in the figure which, until recently, has consistently been ignored in interpreting the celebrated dripped paintings

Henry Moore by Jeremy Lewison ( Book )
13 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume presents the works of English sculptor and artist Henry Moore (1898-1986). He was best known for his abstract monumental bronze sculptures which are located around the world as public works of art. Often depicting human or human-like forms -- especially female -- Moore's sculptures, with their abstract style, brought a distinctive brand of Modernism to fine art. His cast bronze and carved marble sculptures grace the gardens and galleries of the world's finest museums and have earned him a devoted following. Particularly beloved are his many mother-and-child compositions. The author has included a chronological summary of Moore's life and work, covering his cultural and historical importance, and with some 100 color illustrations with explanatory captions
