Bob Thompson by Thelma Golden ( Book )
10 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this fully illustrated volume, Thelma Golden, curator of the Whitney exhibition, and art historian Judith Wilson, the preeminent Thompson scholar who has been studying the artist's work for nearly two decades, examine the issues that surrounded Thompson's art in his own day and still resonate in ours. Golden discusses the formal aspects of the works, their influence on later black artists, and the vicissitudes of Thompson's career, while Wilson places Thompson within an art historical, cultural, and biographical context. Together, they offer a serious evaluation of his work, one that finally establishes Thompson's place among his contemporaries and in the larger history of American twentieth-century art

Kara Walker : pictures from another time by Kara Elizabeth Walker ( Book )
5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Kara Walker creates vivid and shocking evocations, rooted in stereotypes, of an antebellum world that comments on the system of slavery and its continuing legacy in the American consciousness. In her choice of black cut-paper silhouettes, Walker takes a medium that was extremely fashionable in the late 18th and early 19th centuries as part of the neoclassical revival, when the silhouetted images on ancient Greek and Roman vases were emulated on such goods as Wedgwood ware. The silhouette was a parlor art practiced by genteel ladies and gentlemen, who created portraits, landscapes, and decorative motifs. There were also traveling silhouettists who took their craft around the country. The 18th- and 19th-century silhouette was also associated with the pseudo-science of physiognomy, which held that one could analyze psychological and racial types by studying profiles. Adopting the antiquated medium of the silhouette, Walker has turned it into a powerful force to evoke the complexities of the system of slavery, exploring themes of exploitation, accommodation, and complicity on the part of both the powerful and the oppressed. Pictures From Another Time is the first major publication on the work of this extraordinary artist. It includes nearly 70 examples of her work, including her silhouettes, prints, drawings, projected installations, and watercolors. Texts include an interview with the artist by curator Thelma Golden, Deputy Director of Programs at The Studio Museum in Harlem; and essays by literary critic Robert Reid-Pharr, Professor of English at the City University of New York and Annette Dixon, Curator of Western Art at the University of Michigan Museum of Art

Chris Ofili by Chris Ofili ( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Chris Ofili's intricately constructed works, combining beadlike dots of paint, collaged images from popular media, and elephant dung, create a unique iconography that marries African artistic and ritual practices with Western art historical traditions and contemporary hip-hop culture. This beautifully designed book, made in close collaboration with the artist, is the first to examine Ofili's artistic development and surveys his work in watercolor, graphite drawing, and sculpture. Literary and historical parallels from a formidable list of contributors explore the ways through which the artist has grasped his times with a palpable sense of history."--BOOK JACKET
