Jeff Koons by Francesco Bonami ( Book )
13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1975, a young art student moved to Chicago, where he studied at The School of the Art Institute and worked as a studio assistant to his hero, painter Ed Paschke, for $1 an hour. This books takes a fresh look at the career of Jeff Koons, now one of the world's most famous artists."

Maurizio Cattelan by Maurizio Cattelan ( Book )
18 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Maurizio Cattelan is undoubtedly the best known and most controversial contemporary Italian artist. His works include the sculpture of John Paul II being struck by a meteorite, “Hanged Children,” which was removed from a square in Milan due to public outcry, and his most recent “Finger,” which was displayed in front of the Italian Stock Exchange headquarters, all of which have aroused heated debate in the art world and the general public. Some people believe Cattelan is one of the brightest geniuses of contemporary art, while others consider him only a vulgar—yet clever—provocateur. But who exactly is Maurizio Cattelan? Why does everything he creates cause a scandal? Francesco Bonami, the curator of numerous exhibitions and who has collaborated with Cattelan on many projects tells the true story, from the beginning to resounding success. In this officially unofficial biography, Maurizio Cattelan plays along and tells his story to the public through Bonami, offering, as one of his most provocative works, his point of view on art and society, views that, as always, will have people talking

Rudolf Stingel by Rudolf Stingel ( Book )
10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Celebrated for his explorations of the process of painting and the "idea" of painting, Rudolf Stingel (b. 1956) combines minimalist, conceptual, and performative practices to create unexpected spaces. This highly anticipated book is the premier critical survey of Stingel's career to date." "Employing a wide range of materials, Stingel reflects upon fundamental questions facing painting today: authenticity, meaning, hierarchy, and context. By transforming the materiality, process, and perception of paintings, Stingel's work alters the viewer's perception of and physical encounter with the artwork and invites the viewer to participate or collaborate in a new and deeper understanding and appreciation of art." "His full range of work, including his recent portraits and self-portraits, is represented in this handsome volume. With important contributions by Whitney curator Chrissie Iles and Reiner Zettl, Rudolf Stingel is the first book to examine the broader implications of the artist's creative practice in contemporary society."--BOOK JACKET

With an essay by Francesco Bonami, an interview with the artist by Nicholas Serota, director of the Tate Britain, and essays by the Qatari writer Sophia Al Maria and the Pakistani writer Mohsin Hamid, the volume offers an original point of view on Hirst's oeuvre, whose works have become collective icons of our civilization", viewed December 12, 2013
