The rise of the sixties : American and European art in the era of dissent by Thomas E Crow ( Book )
30 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 1,201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of Thomas Crow's most influential titles, The Rise of the Sixties, provides an overview of the major themes and figures in the 1960s art world. Presenting an international array of artists against the background of world culture, Crow portrays the ways in which the American art scene - including such key figures as Leo Castelli, Eva Hesse, Jasper Johns, Robert Morris, Robert Smithson, Cy Twombly, and Andy Warhol - fit into the corresponding European and international movements of the time, among them Situationalism, Conceptualism, Feminism, Environmentalism, and Op Art." "Generously illustrated, the book encompasses all the major players in the art world of the 1960s and examines how they influenced and inspired one another, while struggling to have an impact on a world preoccupied with social crisis."--BOOK JACKET
Nineteenth century art : a critical history by Stephen Eisenman ( Book )
6 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 1,093 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a radical reconsideration of the origins of modern painting and sculpture in Europe and North America. In art, as in nearly every other field, the nineteenth century was a time of questioning, experimentation, discovery and modernization. Artists divined and portrayed, as never before, the crucial connections between seeing and knowing, vision and society

Modern art in the common culture by Thomas E Crow ( Book )
23 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and Spanish and held by 986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Must avant-garde art hold itself apart from the values and beliefs widely held in the common culture? Must advanced artists always be the symbolic adversaries of the ordinary citizen? These questions have dominated, even paralyzed the modern art world, particularly in recent years when perceived elitism and imposed canons of taste have come under fire from all sides. In this stimulating book, a prominent art historian shows that the links between advanced art and modern mass culture have always been robust, indeed necessary to both. Thomas Crow focuses on the continual interdependence between the two phenomena, providing examples that range from Paris in the mid-nineteenth century to the latest revivals of Conceptual art in the 1990s
Robert Rauschenberg : combines by Robert Rauschenberg ( Book )
11 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With these mixed-media works of art, Rauschenberg reinvented collage, changing it from a medium that presses commonplace materials to serve illusion into something very different: a process that undermines both illusion and the idea that a work of art has a unitary meaning. Appearing as either wall-hung works or as freestanding objects, the combines are composed as syncopated grids that draw on materials from everyday life and the history of art. - Metropolitan Museum of Art. This book focuses on the works created roughly between 1954 and 1964, the most important decade in the artist's 50-year career, and constitutes the most complete survey of the Combines ever presented, as well as the most rigorous analysis of their political, social, autobiographical, and aesthetic significance. An introductory essay by exhibition curator Paul Schimmel titled "Reading Rauschenberg" offers an iconographic analysis of the earlier Combines, based on in-depth conversations with the artist. Other texts help to contextualize the Combines, such as Thomas Crow's essay that calls them the major artistic statement of their time. - Publisher
Robert Smithson by Robert Smithson ( Book )
8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This fully illustrated 280-page book accompanies the first comprehensive American retrospective of Robert Smithson's (1938-1973) complex and highly influential body of work. Perhaps best known as the creator of Spiral Jetty, a fifteen-hundred-foot rock coil dramatically situated in Utah's Great Salt Lake, Smithson also broke new ground with his films, photographs, writings, drawings, sculptures, and collages. His oeuvre defied convention, utilizing nontraditional art materials such as mirrors, maps, concrete, earth, and asphalt - in addition to language, as both a written and visual medium. Smithson's revolutionary ideas moved art beyond the walls of the museum into the landscape itself."--BOOK JACKET

9 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Jasper Johns to Jeff Koons: Four Decades of Art from the Broad Collections, organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), is the first large-scale exhibition of the Broads' achievement, presenting more than 100 works of art from these two significant collections. The show highlights American artists whose paintings, sculptures, and photographs the Broads have acquired in depth, among them Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Roy Lichtenstein, Cindy Sherman, and Cy Twombly, Johns, Koons, and the Los Angeles artists John Baldessari, Sharon Lockhart, Charles Ray, Ed Ruscha, and Robert Therrien. German artists such as George Baselitz and Anselm Kiefer are also represented. Together, these works form an invaluable record of the artistic achievements of the past forty years." "This catalogue, published in conjunction with the exhibition, illustrates the objects in the exhibition as well as several related works from the Broad collections. The accompanying texts include an interview with Eli and Edythe Broad by exhibition curators Stephanie Barron and Lynn Zelevansky, as well as essays by art historians Thomas Crow, Sabine Eckmann, Joanne Heyler, and Pepe Karmel, which place the works in critical and historical context."--Jacket
Nineteenth century art : a critical history by Stephen Eisenman ( Book )
6 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is a reconsideration of the origins of modern painting, sculpture and photography in Europe and North America. In the arenas of art and representation, the nineteenth century was a time of questioning, experimentation, discovery and modernization; artists challenged, as never before, prevailing definitions of art and the social order." "The revised and expanded edition of Nineteenth Century Art: A Critical History embraces many aspects of the so-called 'new' art history - attention to issues of class and gender, reception and spectatorship, racism and Eurocentrism - while at the same time recovering the remarkable vitality, salience and subversiveness of the era's best art. Indeed, the authors insist that there is a profound sympathy between these new perspectives and the art under examination. For it was nineteenth-century artists who first addressed the issues that preoccupy audiences and scholars today: the relation between popular and elite culture, the legacy of the Enlightenment, the question of the canon, and the representation of workers, women and non-whites."--BOOK JACKET

Seeing Rothko by Mark Rothko ( Book )
7 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume explores the profound and varied responses elicited by Russian-born American painter Mark Rothko's (1903-1970) most compelling creations. Rothko was classified as an abstract expressionist, although he himself rejected this label, and even resisted classification as an "abstract painter". Throughout his career, Rothko was concerned with what other people experienced when they looked at his canvases. As his work shifted from figurative imagery to luminous fields of color, his concern expanded to the setting in which his paintings were exhibited. In a series of analytic, personal, and even poetic essays by contemporary scholars, Rothko's works are analyzed. This volume also reproduces a "Scribble Book," in which Rothko jotted down his ideas on teaching art to children, and a sketchbook, both dating to the early years of the artist's career
Ross Bleckner by Ross Bleckner ( Book )
2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This monograph, the first devoted to the important New York-based painter Ross Bleckner, is published on the occasion of a mid-career retrospective organized by the Guggenheim Museum. In the 1980s, Bleckner emerged as a central figure in the revival of American painting, a position he has solidified in the 1990s. Through various subjects and motifs - optically dizzying stripes, nocturnal landscapes, funerary urns, memorial imagery, chandeliers, abstract domes, and constellations - Bleckner evokes memory, desire, and irony in order to examine the uncertainty of the human condition, while simultaneously celebrating the transcendent principles of nature and the cosmos." "Produced in collaboration with the artist, this book captures the beauty and presence of Bleckner's paintings through oversized, vividly realized reproductions. It also provides the first major scholarly appreciation of the artist's work."--Jacket
