Sigmar Polke : works on paper 1963-1974 by Margit Rowell( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sigmar Polke's thirty-five-year career, during which he has produced a vast range of work in all mediums, has earned him a reputation as one of the most significant artists of his generation. Born in 1941, he began his creative output around 1963 in Dusseldorf during a time of enormous social, cultural, and artistic changes in Germany and elsewhere. Few of his works demonstrate more vividly his imagination, sardonic wit, and subversive approach than the drawings, watercolors, and gouaches produced during the 1960s and early 1970s. Embedded in these images are incisive and parodic commentaries on consumer society, the postwar political scene in Germany, and classic artistic conventions." "This book is published to accompany the first American museum exhibition of Polke's drawings from this period, shown at The Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1999. More than 300 works are illustrated, virtually all of them in color. They include small sketches in ballpoint and felt-tipped pen, larger sheets in watercolor and gouache, and still others stamped with a dot screen process."--Book Jacket
Sigmar Polke by Gloria Moure( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication was designed and conceived in collaboration with the artist and includes part of his personal documentation. It is also the only publication that includes a critical review of his production of Films. Also there is a very interesting crosscutting issue in the book: the relation of the artist with the Goya painting, Las viejas o el tiempo. The new cover shows Polke photographing this painting in The Beaux Arts Museum in Lille (France). Starting from the profane material of everyday culture, Polke interprets images of reality rather than reality itself, satirizes tendencies in contemporary painting, questions the role of the artist as author, breaks down the trivial visual worlds of media photography, and always, but always, takes off on the most magnificent fights of imagination. The 20_21 Collection focuses on the creative and intellectual approach of key contemporary artists and consists of a series of monographs that examine the interdisciplinary nature of the definition of art and its limits. The collection also provides a forum for the critical consideration of contemporary art practice as a whole. Based on rigorous research, these essays on the oeuvre of an individual artist also look at the context surrounding the work."--Publisher's description

I don't make photographs, I take photographs : Photographien 1957-2003 von Manfred Leve by Manfred Leve( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in German and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit seiner besonderen Wahrnehmungsweise dokumentiert Leve Ereignisse in den 50er Jahren, die zur Entstehung neuer Kunstformen beigetragen haben. So wurde er der Zeuge von flüchtigen Aktionen und Performances der frühen Fluxus- und Happening- Bewegung. Doch Leve ist weit mehr als ein dokumentierender Teilnehmer. Seine Fotografien heben das Tatsächliche in einen höheren Bildsinn auf. Später, als es für Fotografen zur Modeerscheinung wurde, Aktionen, Performances und Happenings abzulichten, wandte er sich neuen fotografischen Herausforderungen zu: seine Bildsequenzen, wie die über Blinky Palermo, Gerhard Richter und Sigmar Polke, gehören zu den Meisterwerken der modernen Porträtfotografie
