Jasper Johns : a retrospective by Kirk Varnedoe( Book )

21 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 1,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accompanying the major exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1996-97, Jasper Johns: A Retrospective contains 264 color plates illustrating Johns's work in all its facets - paintings, drawings, sculptures, and prints. An introductory essay by Kirk Varnedoe, the exhibition's curator, looks back through the layers of memory in Johns's recent work to review the essential themes that have engaged the artist since his epoch-making Flag and Target paintings of the mid-1950s. In the book's second essay, Roberta Bernstein analyzes a crucial tactic in Johns's art: his many methods of referring to predecessor artists ranging from Leonardo and Grunewald to Cezanne, Duchamp, and Picasso. The illustrations for Bernstein's essay include a fourteen-page section reproducing the images she discusses - a striking visual demonstration of the variety of the art that Johns's work gathers together and transforms. Varnedoe then takes the opposite approach to Bernstein's, exploring how Johns's art has been interpreted by the artists of his and our own time: from the Pop, Minimal and Conceptual movements of the 1960s through to the new art of today, his work has proved rich enough to have a fundamentally influential impact on an extraordinarily diverse array of artists. The plates in Jasper Johns: A Retrospective are arranged in sections according to the stages of Johns's career, allowing comparison of paintings, drawings, sculptures, and prints from each period of his art as it has developed and changed. This comprehensive selection of reproductions is interwoven with an illustrated chronology tracing Johns's life and work with unprecedented accuracy and thoroughness
Cézanne and beyond by Joseph J Rishel( Book )

14 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The famous proclamation that Cezanne "is the father of us all" has been attributed to both Matisse and Picasso, and his influence has extended to a great diversity of artists thereafter. In this monumental book, a team of distinguished scholars offers the most comprehensive view to date on Cezanne's vital role in shaping European and American art throughout the 20th century and into the 21st. More than forty paintings and ten works on paper by Cezanne-many of his best-known and most admired-are juxtaposed throughout the catalogue with approximately 120 works by a range of modern and contemporary artists who found in Cezanne a central inspiration. They include Max Beckmann, Georges Braque, Charles Demuth, Alberto Giacometti, Arshile Gorky, Marsden Hartley, Fernand Leger, Brice Marden, Piet Mondrian, Giorgio Morandi, Liubov Popova, and Jeff Wall, as well as Picasso, Matisse, Johns, and Kelly. The essays offer insights into the "conversation" between Cezanne and each of these other artists, who stand on a par with his greatness. Among its many features, this book contains conceptual overviews by Richard Shiff and Robert Storr as well as an illustrated chronology."--Publisher description

Jasper Johns : seeing with the mind's eye by Jasper Johns( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than sixty years, Jasper Johns has found new ways to explore how art creates meaning in the mind's eye. His most celebrated paintings from the 1950s and 1960s, with their bold colors, popular imagery, and sculptural elements, had an enormous impact on the development of pop, minimalism, and conceptual art. Johns is undoubtedly one of the most significant artists of the 20th century, and his work has inspired some of the field's most incisive critical thinking and writing. At eighty-two, Johns is still active, as are his critics and observers. Jasper Johns: Seeing with the Mind's Eye brings together established and younger scholars with the aim of exposing a new generation to the variety of critical approaches to this contemporary master. Contributions range from historical to critical and poetic and, unlike most large surveys, take a close, in-depth look at specific works of art and series, including paintings, drawings, graphics, sculptural pieces, and illustrated books from all periods of Johns's career."--Publisher's website
Ellsworth Kelly : a retrospective by Ellsworth Kelly( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive monograph - published on the occasion of the first complete retrospective of Kelly's work since 1973, organized at the Guggenheim Museum by Diane Waldman, the museum's Deputy Director and Senior Curator - is a definitive investigation of Kelly's career, from his earliest works to the present. Waldman, author of numerous monographs on Modern and contemporary art, has brought together more than 399 of Kelly's most important paintings, sculptures, and works on paper (including several that have never been published): early abstract paintings and reliefs; figurative drawings; collages; photographs; paintings featuring a synthesis of biomorphic and geometric form; single-panel and multipanel paintings; shaped panels; and many of his sculptures, including the first two (from 1959) through the most recent (from 1996). her essay - an overview of Kelly's entire career - and four additional essays on various aspects of his oeuvre by Roberta Bernstein, Carter Ratcliff, Mark Rosenthal, and Clare Bell (plus a Chronology, Exhibition History, and Bibliography) explain the important relationships among his works in various mediums, and reveal why and how Kelly has produced some of the most distinctive art of our time
