Jasper Johns : an allegory of painting, 1955-1965 by Jeffrey S Weiss ( Book )
23 editions published in 2007 in English and German and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume was published to accompany an exhibition of the works of American contemporary artist who works primarily in painting and printmaking, Jasper Johns (b. 1930). In the late 1950's, Johns emerged as force in the American art scene. His richly worked paintings of maps, flags, and targets led the artistic community away from Abstract Expressionism toward a new emphasis on the concrete. Johns laid the groundwork for both Pop Art and Minimalism. The exhibition of works depicted in this book was held at the National Gallery in Washington, concentrating on the pivotal decade 1955-1965 when Johns produced his most famous works. Alongside the full color reproductions of Johns' works are analysis of various diverse aspects of these early years of his career that established him as one of the great figures in modern art and stimulated much in art created by others
The popular culture of modern art : Picasso, Duchamp, and avant-gardism by Jeffrey S Weiss ( Book )
10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Linking Picasso's innovations in cubist collage to the puns and topical jokes of the music-hall and theatrical revue, Weiss also links Duchamp's readymades and Large Glass to hoaxes in the daily papers. He shows that cubist and futurist styles were put to parodic use in caricature, advertising, stage design and other forms of popular visual culture, and were often interpreted in the press as examples of flagrant self-publicity. The cultural assimilation of avant-garde art, not often considered in histories of modernism, ultimately mirrors the role of the comic in Picasso and Duchamp
Picasso : the cubist portraits of Fernande Olivier by Jeffrey S Weiss ( Book )
14 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Between spring and winter 1909, Picasso executed more than sixty portraits of his companion, Fernande Olivier. In their tenacious pursuit of a single subject, these works reveal a level of experimentation that stands out in the history of portraiture. Even more significant, the Fernande series coincided with the invention of cubism. Published to accompany a major exhibition originating at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, this richly illustrated volume illuminates Picasso's radical reformulation of human physiognomy." "Containing eighty-two color illustrations and sixty-eight duo-tones, the catalogue explores the Fernande portraits and related works as a single oeuvre culminating in the magnificent Head of a Woman (Fernande) - one of Picasso's rare pre-1912 excursions into sculpture. By so doing, it allows us to examine Picasso's process in an unprecedented fashion. What emerges is a new picture of the artist developing a single portrait motif with obsessive repetition and struggling to resolve artistic problems during a time of crisis in his work. Also included are studio photographs that offer further insight into the conceptual nature of the artist's process. The next narrates the internal development of the Fernande portrait series, with particular emphasis on the sculpted Head, and relates it to other themes, including likeness, serial repetition, and the history of melancholy. The book also addresses the complex nature of Picasso's interest in the work of Paul Cezanne."--BOOK JACKET
Dan Flavin : new light ( Book )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Taking light as his primary medium, Dan Flavin (1933-1996) was one of the most innovative and significant artists of the minimalist movement. In Dan Flavin: New Light, six leading scholars of contemporary art consider the ambiguities and multiple resonances of Flavin's art. Each addresses the ontological complexity of the work - object-based, yet "situational," and painterly in its deployment of colored light - within the insistently sculptural world of minimalism. The book's contributors interpret this tension by exploring Flavin's early assemblages, the relationship of drawing to his installation practice, the operation of the lamp as medium in actual space, and the openly ambivalent place of Flavin's work within the history of late modernism."--BOOK JACKET
Robert Morris : object sculpture, 1960-1965 by Jeffrey S Weiss ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is a systematic catalogue of work by Robert Morris from the crucial early period of his career. It concerns some one-hundred "object sculptures" that dating between 1960 and 1965: plaques, containers, and assisted or simulated readymades of wood, Sculpmetal, and lead. These objects were produced concurrently with a series of large, blank constructed forms in gray-painted plywood - canonical works of Minimal art. Here, the smaller sculptures are addressed for the first time as an overall body of work. The present study departs from past literature, where scholarly attention is repeatedly paid to the same handful of selected objects. The catalogue and text seek to map the internal logic of the object sculptures: to acknowledge that they represent part of a complex, integral practice. Without displacing the foundational significance of certain sculptures to the emergence of Conceptualism, this treatment directs new attention to the material fabrication of the works. By extension, it examines the significance of "process" as it pertains both to the making of the sculptures themselves and, through iconography, to the body. The factor of process is one with which the artist specifically identified the significance of the object sculptures - which he referred to as "process type objects". Fabrication and medium thus join more established elements, such as language, systems of measurement, and time, as the work's chief concerns. The key significance to Morris of the work of Marcel Duchamp is also recast in this context. Produced with the cooperation of the artist, this catalogue contains much new information, and includes a substantial interview in which Morris reflects on the circumstances and significance of the work from the vantage of the present"--
