Tate Modern : the handbook by Simon Wilson( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and German and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book celebrates the opening of Tate Modern, London, and introduces readers to the building, the collection, and the new approach to modern and contemporary art. The gallery presents the twentieth century through the reinterpretation of four classic themes: the nude, landscape, still-life, and history painting. Their re-emergence in modern art as the body, the environment, the everyday, and society, is discussed in four introductory texts and through selected writings. The second half of the book is an A to Z of one hundred key artists in the Tate's international modern collection that are introduced by a team of eleven art historians."--Page 4 de la couverture
Alex Katz by Alex Katz( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alex Katz is a towering figure in contemporary painting, a key New York-based artist since the early 1960s. Katz was an independent figure during the heyday of Abstract Expressionism and Pop when he first emerged--and remains a unique, though highly influential figure. Alex Katz is best known for his distinct portraits of sophisticated, irresistible women, masterfully painted using precise, broad areas of colour. Alongside these unmistakably 'Katzian' female portraits are portraits of men, group portraits, landscapes and interiors rendered in painting, drawing, collage and metal cut-outs. All attest to the artist's attention to detail, economy of means and consummate technique
Ilya Kabakov by Boris Groĭs( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After spending some thirty years as an 'unofficial' artist behind the Iron Curtain of the former Soviet Union, Ilya Kabakov first came to the attention of the West in the 1980s. Today Kabakov is recognized as the most important Russian artist to have emerged in the late 20th century, with installations that speak as much about conditions in post-Stalinist Russia as they do about the human condition universally. His installations are, in some instances, akin to theatrical mise-en-scenes, reproducing a cramped communal apartment or a flooded art museum as a site of Schadenfreude-like comedies on human frustration and doomed aspirations. Alternating between light-hearted irony and genuine tragedy, Kabakov evokes a shadowy world lit by a twenty-watt bulb in which fable-like miracles might occur: a homespun cosmonaut may fly into space, or the radio/television aerial may spell out a poem against the sky. Ilya Kabakov's work has featured in the world's most significant surveys of contemporary art, among them Documenta IX (Kassel, Germany, 1992), and the Whitney Biennial (New York, 1997). In 1993 Kabakov represented Russia at the 45th Venice Biennale."--BOOK JACKET

Las líneas simples y los colores audaces confieren a las esculturas de Fritsch la claridad de iconos o pictogramas; sus figuras y objetos evocan las imágenes de los cuentos de hadas, las fábulas y los mitos, creando una extraña tensión entre lo familiar y lo desconocido, confiriendo un sólido realismo a lo visionario y lo fantástico

Adventures of the black square : abstract art and society 1915-2015 by Iwona Blazwick( Book )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring how the universal visual language of geometric abstraction was influenced by different societies, this volume also demonstrates how the movement's revolutionary aesthetic continues to impact culture around the globe. It traces a century of abstract art from 1915 to the present day, celebrating the accomplishments of both men and women and includes sculpture, film, photography and painting. Organised around four distinct themes - communication, architectonics, utopia and everyday life - the book presents a chronological survey from Russia to Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Central America, Africa, South America, and the US. Each of the 100 works is featured in double-page spreads with brief artist biographies. Essays by Tanya Barson, Briony Fer, Tom McDonough, and Joshua Jiang, contextualize the various geographic and aesthetic stages of the development of geometric abstraction
