With full bibliography and a chronology of his life and career, this is the most complete and wide-ranging volume on Edward Steichen ever published."--BOOK JACKET
Heart of Spain : Robert Capa's photographs of the Spanish Civil War : from the collection of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía by Robert Capa ( Book )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Heart of Spain is the first volume to be devoted entirely to the finest of Robert Capa's photographs from the Spanish Civil War (1936-39) and features many never-before-published images, including selections from Capa's long-lost contact sheets." "In addition to over one hundred duotone images by Capa, Heart of Spain also features rare photographs by Gerda Taro, and three compelling essays that place Robert Capa's photographs within their cultural and historical milieu. Juan P. Fusi Aizpurua draws our attention to the intellectual climate of an era when artists and writers still-dared to consider their labor revolutionary. Using Capa's photographs as a starting point, Catherine Coleman, curator of photographs at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, examines the radical social changes that took place in women's lives during the war. Richard Whelan, Capa's biographer, elaborates on the photographer's travels in Spain and on the creation of a body of work that would prove seminal in the development of Capa's photographic career."--Jacket

Julian Schnabel : Malerei = paintings 1978-2003 by Julian Schnabel ( Book )
6 editions published in 2004 in 3 languages and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Julian Schnabel, who was born in 1951 in Brooklyn, New York, was among the young artists who were celebrated enthusiastically in the eighties for having helped revive painting, a genre which had been declared dead. His highly expressive large-format paintings soon made him a star of Neo-Expressive painting. Schnabel often uses unusual supports for his paintings - such as used army tarpaulins, porcelain plates, Mexican pottery, or animal skins - and his experimentation with materials is reflected in his painting as well. His works, which unite oil painting and collage, fluctuate between abstract and figurative, and are sometimes dominated by letters or words. This book presents sixty-five works from the past twenty-five years in full-page or double-page color illustrations. Photographs by Schnabel himself provide a look at the painter's opulent surroundings in his house and studio. The publication is completed by a detailed biography and essays by prominent authors."--BOOK JACKET
Rodchenko & Popova : defining constructivism by Christina Kiaer ( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Aleksandr Rodchenko and Liubov Popovaq were leading figures in the Russian avant-garde during its most exciting period, from the 1917 Revolution to Popova's tragically early death in 1924 at the age of thirty-five. Together they believed that new forms of art could play a key role in transforming society and reorganizing everyday life. As leading lights in the Constructivist movement they were responsible for an array of iconic works, from painting to magazine covers and fabric designs. Featuring new scholarship, as well as archival photos and illustrating many previously unpublished works, this book demonstrates the extent of their influence on their circle of friends and collaborators and their wide impact on the course of twentieth-century art."--Jacket
Paul Thek : artist's artist by Paul Thek ( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hold still, keep going by Robert Frank ( Book )
11 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Robert Frank not only ranks among the most important of living photographers but is also widely recognized as a seminal figure in the development of experimental cinema. And yet, the continuity and consistency of his work in both photography and film has been barely explored. "Hold still-keep going" fills this obvious void by illustrating and analyzing the underlying aesthetics that have guided Frank's work in both media. From the very outset of his career, Frank distrusted the single photographic image and its claim to freeze moments of truth: time and again he gravitated to the moving image and serial photography, be it in book form or as a panel of photographs. Reproducing more than 100 collages, film stills and serial works, this volume will certainly become a new standard publication on Robert Frank, innovative photographer and experimental filmmaker. The book also contains an illustrated bibliography and biography featuring dozens of previously unpublished images of Robert Frank, his family and his friends. Published in conjunction with a major traveling exhibition, this is an essential addition to all photography and film collections."--Jacket
Mixed use, Manhattan : photography and related practices, 1970s to the present ( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When recession-plagued New York City abandoned its industrial base in the 1970s, performance artists, photographers, and filmmakers found their own mixed uses for the city's run-down lofts, abandoned piers, vacant lots, and deserted streets. Gordon Matta-Clark turned a sanitation pier into the celebrated work Day's End and Betsy Sussler filmed its making; the photographic team Shunk-Kender shot a vast series of images of Willoughby Sharp's Projects: Pier 18 (which included work by Vito Acconci, Mel Bochner, Dan Graham, Matta-Clark, and William Wegman, among others); and Cindy Sherman staged some of her Untitled Film Stills on the streets of Lower Manhattan. Mixed Use, Manhattan documents and illustrates these projects as well as more recent work by artists who continue to engage with the city's public, underground, and improvised spaces. The book (which accompanies a major exhibition) focuses on several important photographic series: Peter Hujar's 1976 nighttime photographs of Manhattan's West Side; Alvin Baltrop's Hudson River pier photographs from 1975-1985, most of which have never before been shown or published; David Wojnarowicz's Rimbaud in New York (1978-1979), the first of Wojnarowicz's works to be published; and several of Zoe Leonard's photographic projects from the late 1990s on. The book includes 70 color and 130 black-and-white images, a chronology of the policy decisions and developments that altered the face of New York City from 1950 to the present; an autobiographical story by David Wojnarowicz; and essays by Johanna Burton, Lytle Shaw, Juan Suarez, and the exhibition's curators, Lynne Cooke and Douglas Crimp."

Yayoi Kusama by Yayoi Kusama ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Yayoi Kusama is one of Japan's most famous living artists. Her originality, innovation and sheer drive to make art have propelled her through a career that has spanned six decades, encompassing painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, collage, film and video, performance, installation and even product design. From the late 1950s to the early 1970s Kusama lived in New York, and was at the forefront of many artistic innovations in the city, becoming close with artists such as Donald Judd, Andy Warhol, Joseph Cornell and Claes Oldenburg, and influencing many others along the way. It was in these years that Kusama was dubbed "the Polka Dot Princess," for her obsessive use of polka dots in installations and happenings. Returning to Japan in her forties, she rebuilt her career, waiting years for the international recognition that she has recently achieved. Now in her ninth decade, Kusama's imagination remains fertile and productive, as she continues to devise dazzling installations and relentlessly hand-paints her ongoing series of minutely detailed figurative fantasy paintings. Accompanying the first major retrospective exhibition of the artist's work in the U.S., this volume features a wealth of works from all periods in Kusama's career, as well as essays by various international curators and critics, discussing Kusama's years in New York, her career after her return to Japan, her installation works and the psychoanalytic import of her art. Yayoi Kusama was born in Matsumoto, Japan, in 1929. She left Japan for New York at the age of 28, following a correspondence with Georgia O'Keeffe, and was soon participating in the city's 1960s wave of happenings and avant-garde activities. In 1973, Kusama returned to Japan and began writing surrealistic novels and poetry. On November 12, 2008, Christies New York sold a work by her for $5.1 million, a record for a living female artist."--Publisher's website
