Robert Rauschenberg : breaking boundaries by Robert Saltonstall Mattison( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Rauschenberg is one of the most prolific and best-known artists of the post-war period, whose work, ranging across a number of disciplines, has influenced avant-garde art since the 1950s. Rauschenberg has allowed Robert Mattison into his studio to observe the artist at work and this resulting book examines selected projects in depth so that the meaning of his art, his working procedures, and the reasons behind his various artistic choices may be better understood." "The book covers the influence of urbanism on Rauschenberg's Combine paintings of the 1950s and explores his involvement with the "space race" during the 1960s and 1970s, relating his works to popular culture and demonstrating the development of his ideas about the peaceful exploration of space. Mattison examines Rauschenberg's extensive involvement in the performing arts, tracing his connections to avant-garde dance in America, addressing his own performances, and focusing on his work with the well-known choreographer Trisha Brown. The final chapter examines Rauschenberg's most extensive artistic undertaking, the Rauschenberg Overseas Culture Interchange (ROCI). One venue of this seven-year and eleven-country project was Chile, which Rauschenberg visited while the country was under the rule of dictator Augusto Pinochet. The author shows how in dangerous political circumstances Rauschenberg was able to execute and exhibit works critical of the government." "Lavishly illustrated with Rauschenberg's works and photographs of the artist in performance and in the studio, the mixture of the visual arts, politics, technology, dance, and urban theory - among other issues - covered in this study recommends it to a wide audience and speaks to the multidisciplinary scholarship of our era."--Jacket

Arshile Gorky : a retrospective by Arshile Gorky( Book )

13 editions published in 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arshile Gorky was one of the central figures in American art's shift toward abstraction during the first half of the twentieth century. Accompanying the first major retrospective of his work in almost thirty years, this book traces the evolution of Gorky's arresting visual style. Nearly two hundred paintings, drawings, sculptures, and prints from all phases of his career--an number of them never before published or exhibited--are beautifully reproduced, including a large figurative painting from 1927 known previously only through its preparatory studies. Throughout the volume, some of Gorky's best-known and most powerful paintings are paired with related pieces and meticulous preliminary studies, shedding new light on his artistic process. Illustrated essays incorporating recently discovered biographical information and photographs examine his experience of the Armenian Genocide, his collaboration with the Works Progress Administration, and his explorations of abstraction and Surrealism, providing important reassessments of his life and career. Admired by many of his contemporaries and hugely influential for subsequent generations of artists, Gorky created a complex and deeply moving body of work that encompasses styles ranging from Impressionism to Cubism, Surrealism, and the beginnings of Abstract Expressionism
