Pandora's box; the changing aspects of a mythical symbol by Dora Mosse Panofsky( Book )

Pandore est la première femme, le beau mal ; elle ouvre une boîte défendue ; en sortent tous les maux dont héritera l'humanité ; seule demeure l'espérance." D'Hésiode à Paul Klee, soit sur la totalité de l'arche de temps de l'art occidental, le mythe de Pandore accomplit son chemin. C'est ce parcours, avec ses longs silences, ses reprises, ses transformations, que le livre de Dora et Erwin Panofsky retrace. 0Le long de cette enquête si riche en pièces à conviction, le lecteur se retrouve, pour sa joie la plus grande, dans la posture de celui qui avance au sein d'une fiction : ce qui s'échappe de la boîte de Pandore ouverte par Erwin et Dora Panofsky, c'est la matière fictionnelle même, dans une pureté quasi originelle. Un nouvel essai du grand historien de l'art Erwin Panofsky, qui s'ajoute aux trois succès dans la collection Bibliothèque Hazan : Dürer, Titien et Les primitifs flamands

The New York school; a cultural reckoning by Dore Ashton( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in French and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With the emergence of Abstract Expressionism after World War II, the attention of the international art world turned from Paris to New York. Dore Ashton captures the vitality of the cultural milieu in which the New York School artists worked and argued and critiqued each other's work from the 1930s to the 1950s. Working from unsifted archives, from contemporary newspapers and books, and from extensive conversations with the men and women who participated in the rise of the New York School, Ashton provides a rich cultural and intellectual history of this period. In examining the complex sources of this important movement--from the WPA program of the 1930s and the influx of European ideas to the recognition in the 1950s of American painting on an international scale--she conveys the concerns of an extraordinary group of artists including Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Ad Reinhardt, Philip Guston, Barnett Newman, Arshile Gorky, and many others. Rare documentary photographs illustrate Ashton's classic appraisal of the New York School scene
