Interpreting Pollock by Jeremy Lewison( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 377 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

21 editions published in 2011 in 3 languages and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This ambitious exhibition brings together works by J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851), Claude Monet (1840-1926) and Cy Twombly (1928-2011), three of the most prolific and well-known artists of all time. Turner Monet Twombly: Later Paintings explores the similarities between these artists in style, subject and artistic motivation during the last 20-30 years of their lives. Turner Monet Twombly: Later Paintings will feature iconic works such as Monet's fabulous Water Lilies and Turner's much loved Romantic landscapes. The exhibition will also include a major work from Twombly's vibrant and well-received series, Blooming: A Scattering of Blossoms and Other Things, shown in the UK for the first time. Alongside Turner's compelling, atmospheric works and the beautiful and emotive art of Monet, Twombly's original contemporary style adds a fresh and exciting dimension to the exhibition. For those already familiar with the artists' work, this exhibition is a revelation; for new audiences, it is a fascinating introduction. Not to be missed.

Ben Nicholson by Norbert Lynton( Book )

22 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 319 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
Contemporary art in print : the publications of Charles Booth-Clibborn and his imprint the Paragon Press, 1995-2000 by Patrick Elliott( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since The Paragon Press was founded in 1986, it has established a reputation as one of the major print publishers of our time. Based in London, Paragon specialises in producing original print series by leading contemporary British artists, including Damien Hirst, Gary Hume, Anish Kapoor and Rachel Whiteread. This book illustrates and documents all twenty-five projects produced between 1995 and 2000, a period which has witnessed an extraordinary growth in interest in contemporary British art. Most of the series contain around 10 prints each, while some are much larger: the Chapmans' Disasters of War set comprises 83 separate etchings. Working in series, the artists have created narratives, or through repetition and emphasis have built a larger, grander statement than would be possible with single prints. In this way each project counts as an exhibition in itself, and most have taken months, if not years, to complete. The print techniques include screenprint, etching, linocut, woodcut and pigment prints." "The book contains a foreword by Charles Booth-Clibborn, founder of The Paragon Press, an introduction by Patrick Elliott, Assistant Keeper at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh, and an essay by Jeremy Lewison, Keeper of Collections at the Tate, London. The print projects are illustrated in colour in chronological order and are followed by detailed narratives, mainly based on in-depth interviews, by Patrick Elliott. There are biographies and bibliographies of each artist. The book offers a thorough and indispensible survey of the many different trends in Contemporary British Art."--Jacket
Henry Moore by Jeremy Lewison( Book )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in 7 languages and held by 291 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

Alice Neel : drawings and watercolors 1927-1978 by Alice Neel( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in Philadelphia in 1900, Alice Neel trained at the Philadelphia School of Design for Women and carved out a career as an artist in New York, often in difficult circumstances. Neel's dedication to the unfashionable art of portrait painting and social realism and this during the decades of abstract expressionism, pop art and minimalism ensured that her work remained permanently out of kilter with avant-garde artistic developments. Neel's posthumous success is intimately connected to her profound social conscience and idiosyncratic choice of sitters. After her death in 1984, critical interest in Neel's work further intensified and led to a series of landmark exhibitions in Europe. Drawn from the artists estate, the exhibition and catalogue include paintings from all periods of Neel's career, together with a selection of drawings
