Most widely held works by Irène Smets
Anri Sala by Anri Sala( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anri Sala's work is often about obscurity - obscurity of images but also of language and experience - which can render it both vexingly subtle and uncomfortably immediate. Working in a range of media - including video, photography and installation - and having been raised in Tirana, educated in Paris and now settled in Berlin, Anri Sala represents a truly contemporary international vision. They impact of his work - featured at the world's top venues and exhibitions - endorses Sala's conviction that art can transcend cultural references without losing any of its specificity nor, indeed, its power."--Jacket

Gerhard Richter is widely seen as one of the most important painters at work in the world today. Born in Dresden, Germany, in 1932, he left for the West in 1961, settling in Dusseldorf, where he held his first exhibition in 1963. He has exhibited internationally for the last five decades, including retrospectives in New York, Paris and Dusseldorf. He lives and works in Cologne. As the artist draws near to his eightieth birthday in 2012, Tate Modern in collaboration with the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin, and the Centre Pompidou, Paris, is staging a major retrospective exhibition.

Masterpieces in detail : early Netherlandish art from van Eyck to Bosch by Till Borchert( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Forty works by early Netherlandish masters from van Eyck to Bosch--reproduced in exquisite detail--are the subject of this breathtaking book that leads readers deep into the paintings to reveal each artist's astonishing technique and brilliant application of color. The longer we gaze at the paintings of the old masters, the more we appreciate the subtlety and artistry of the painters who created them. This beautiful book offers readers an opportunity to learn and study the art of Jan van Eyck, Rogier van der Weyden, Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, and many other masters of this period and region. It also explores their influence on later artists from the Baroque period. Each of the works is briefly presented along with its historical and contextual background and importance. Then in a series of full-page illustrations, specific details are enlarged to guide the reader carefully and thoughtfully through the piece's nuances and often overlooked features. The result is the next best thing to a private viewing at a museum--a truly sensuous and emotional experience that will engage both the novice and the expert. Till-Holger Borchert's texts are informative and engaging as he shares his singular passion for these great works in a magnificent book that will inspire viewers to form their own opinions and exercise their own powers of observation within the context of this important period in art history." -- Publisher's description
