Frank Gehry, architect by Frank O Gehry( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and Spanish and held by 901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the 1997 completion of what many consider his greatest achievement - the stunning Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain - Frank O. Gehry has soared to the forefront of contemporary American architecture. Long recognized by his peers for his innovative designs, Gehry now enjoys a new level of prominence in the popular imagination. This book, the catalogue of the first large-scale retrospective of Gehry's work in 15 years, examines the architect's unique vision and provides the historical perspective with which to interpret the audacious accomplishments." "Essays by noted museum curators and architectural historians explore his iconoclastic spirit and trace his melding of unconventional materials and forms. Photographs, drawings, plans, and scale models communicate the breadth and complexity of Gehry's work and show how, in his view of architecture as sculptural space, Gehry has opened up a world of new possibilities for architecture."--Jacket

Cy Twombly : cycles and seasons by Cy Twombly( Book )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cy Twombly (b.1928) is one of the leading figures from the generation of American artists that also included Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol. Unlike them, he left America early in his career to live and work in Italy where he drew inspiration from European literature and classical culture. He swiftly built an international reputation with his uniquely expressive abstract paintings, works on paper and sculpture." "Accompanying a major, touring retrospective spanning over fifty years of Twombly's work, this book provides a long-needed critical overview of his career, focusing on his paintings, drawings and sculpture. There is also a rare and wide-ranging interview with the artist and a newly commissioned text by the artist Tacita Dean, as well as an illustrated chronology and extensive bibliography." "Combining the latest scholarship with numerous colour illustrations, this will be the most thorough examination of the life and work of this artist for years to come."--BOOK JACKET

James Rosenquist : a retrospective by Walter Hopps( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Lipsticks, automobiles, dishwashers, men in business suits, spaghetti, rockets, airplanes, hairdryers, ice cream cones and pigtailed girls. James Rosenquist has always known how to combine these seemingly disparate but always all-American elements into whirlwind, billboard-sized collages of airbrushed surreal euphoria, slamming colors, patterns and objects into one another with the eye of an advertising man and the heart of a Pop artist. This momentous catalogue, published to accompany the first in-depth survey of the artist's work since 1972, will give long-overdue, in-depth attention to Rosenquist's singular achievement in American art. Extensive illustrations cover major works in diverse media, including work on paper that reveals the artist's process, as well as extensive new and archival photography. Essays focus on areas that have only been superficially addressed in the literature to date, bringing the level of Rosenquist scholarship up to that of his Pop Art contemporaries. Curator Walter Hopps provides an overview of the artist's career; Julia Blaut considers the artist's source collages in the context of 20th-century collage; Ruth E. Fine addresses Rosenquist's prints; art collector and former aeronautics researcher Eugene E. Epstein relates the artist's work to scientific phenomena. Also included are a definitive biography, exhibition history and illustrated chronology
Claes Oldenburg : the Sixties by Claes Oldenburg( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This comprehensive monograph explores the conceptual complexity and diversity of Claes Oldenburg's early work to reveal this influential artist's extraordinary inventiveness.

It features works including the landmark installations The Street and The Store and their accompanying performances; the highly influential spectacular sculptures of everyday objects as well as drawings and preparatory collages for public projects from the 1960s. The book traces the development of Oldenburg's practice as it follows his work up to the Mouse Museum. Also included in the publication is an extensive chronology, alongside notes as well as a variety of installation views that showcase the careful consideration given to modes of presentation. In addition to imagery of his Pop icons, this richly illustrated book contains an extensive selection of drawings, collages, and magazine and newspaper clippings as well as a wealth of previously unpublished notebook pages, preparatory studies, and photographs taken by the artist. This volume probes diverse aspects of his work to offer fresh perspectives on Oldenburg's artistic development and unprecedented insights into the conceptual process of his artistic explorations"--

Sugimoto : portraits by Hiroshi Sugimoto( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto is renowned for his elegant photographic series of seascapes, theaters, museum dioramas, and Buddhist statuary. His new series presents life-size, black-and-white portraits of historical figures - Henry VIII and each of his wives, Voltaire, Benjamin Franklin, Oscar Wilde, and Emperor Hirohito, among others - photographed in wax museums, isolated against black backgrounds, and dramatically lit so as to create haunting Rembrandtesque images. The series, which also includes a 25-foot, five-panel photograph of a wax effigy of Leonardo's Last Supper, emulates the grand tradition of portraiture and recalls the wax figures' sources in famous paintings by Holbein, David, Van Dyck, and Vermeer."--Jacket

John Chamberlain : Choices by John Chamberlain( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Often identified as the artist who successfully translated Abstract Expressionism into three dimensions, John Chamberlain wound through Franz Schubert, the U.S. Navy, hairdressing, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Black Mountain College poets on his path to art. In Chicago, Chamberlain admired the work of Willem de Kooning and David Smith and learned to weld. Black Mountain instilled in him an intuitive collage sensibility and an approach to language that favored the visual appearance and sounds of words, dissociating them from their definitions. Chamberlain moved to New York in 1956 and within a few years hit upon the decision to utilize car metal as art material. His sculptures hewn from automobiles inevitably attracted the wrong interpretation; where Chamberlain employed creative re-use, others saw simply car crashes. He spent the rest of his life outrunning that association. His primary concern was and continued to be three-dimensional abstraction. More sensitive observers noted a kinship between his works and the dramatic modeling and contrapposto of Baroque art and sculptural drapery studies. With collage--the juxtaposition of heterogeneous elements--and abstraction--the elimination of figurative imagery--as guiding principles, Chamberlain articulated the maxim that permeates his entire oeuvre: 'it's all in the fit.' Throughout his career, modulations in scale and medium provide a vital rhythm to his development. The sculptures range from the size of a fist to the girth of a generous hug to the height of a young, and eventually not so young, tree. Swelling and shrinking, in coats of multicolor, monochrome, or black-and-white paint, the survey of Chamberlain's career displays the integrity of the artist's gesture in diverse manifestations. Despite his commitment to abstraction, identifying anthropomorphic and zoomorphic traits in the lyrical, twisting forms is irresistible. Their playful titles are planted like so many red herrings: Belvo-Violet (1962), Miss Lucy Pink (1962), Rooster Starfoot (1976), Lord Suckfist (1989), and SPHINXGRIN TWO (1986/2010). Chamberlain brazenly defied the taboo of color in sculpture, a holdover from the rhetoric of medium specificity surrounding Abstract Expressionism (materials should be true to themselves, therefore color is the business of painting), which was still influential in the 1960s and considered one of the foremost problems in sculpture at the time. He originally circumvented the controversy by pleading that his color was found straight off of the assembly lines and highways of America. Shortly thereafter, he began to apply new paint to the metal, intervening in ever more elaborate ways with the surfaces of his materials. There are examples of airbrushing from the 1960s, drips and pours from the 1970s, sandblasting from the 1980s, and freehand and stenciled patterns from the 1990s forward. Amassing a body of work that could not be ignored, Chamberlain has been clumsily shoehorned into a variety of ill-fitting categories. Perhaps the most fertile of these is the retroactive link with Abstract Expressionism. His choice of vernacular materials also tied him to Pop. These same materials understood as products of standardized manufacturing associated him with Minimalism, encouraged by the unwavering critical support of Donald Judd. His method of assembly drew him toward Neo-Dada. He remains the inveterate rebel without a tribe, while still being recognized as a standard-bearer of sculptural practice. Driven by the pursuit of what he does not already know, the desire for unprecedented information and knowledge, Chamberlain turned away from car metal to experiment with new materials for a period. In the summer of 1966, he began squeezing and tying urethane foam. A succession of sculptures in other mediums followed: he crushed galvanized steel boxes that he had fabricated at the enlarged dimensions of a cigarette pack, he treated paper bags with a technique he called 'articulate wadding, ' he melted and vacuum-mineral-coated Plexiglas boxes, and he crumpled aluminum. He also made films and videos, notably the cult art classic The Secret Life of Hernando Cortez (1968). By the mid-1970s he returned to automobile steel with renewed vigor. In recent years Chamberlain used vintage cars (formerly junk) of similar stock to the materials he started out with in the late 1950s. The sculptures grew in scale and possess a new-found gravity. He also embarked on the production of monumental aluminum sculptures, based on works that fit in the palm of the hand, which he had been making since the mid-1980s. His creations of the last five years stand as self-assured totems or sentinels at the culmination of nearly six decades of art making. This retrospective gathering of works celebrates the remarkable legacy of John Chamberlain, whose passing on December 21, 2011, we acknowledge with heartfelt remembrance."--Museum website
