Frank Auerbach : paintings and drawings, 1954-2001 by Catherine Lampert ( Book )
9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of Britain's pre-eminent postwar painters and among the most internationally collected of living artists, Frank Auerbach has spent all of his adult life in London and delights in the city's colours and forms. Both his oil paintings and his drawings reveal the intense observation and furious mark-making that he employs to arrive at the essence of his subjects." "This book is published to accompany a major retrospective held at the Royal Academy of Arts to mark Auerbach's seventieth year. Norman Rosenthal considers Auerbach's paintings in the contexts of London and of Western art. Catherine Lampert, curator of the exhibition, contributes an essay on the painter and his sitters, and Isabel Carlisle introduces each of the four sections of catalogue plates. The book illustrates in full colour many works in private collections, providing the most comprehensive survey in print of Auerbach's unique and compelling work."--BOOK JACKET
Bridget Riley by Bridget Riley ( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Bridget Riley is one of Britain's most celebrated artists, and her career has been distinguished by a series of remarkable innovations. She first attracted critical attention with the dazzling black-and-white paintings she began to make in 1961. Her participation in the seminal exhibition The Responsive Eye at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1965 and her triumph at the Venice Biennale in 1968 - when she became the first living British painter to win the International Prize for painting - established her as an artist of the first rank." "Bridget Riley surveys the artist's entire career and includes key examples of all phases of her work. It offers the opportunity both to review many early, celebrated paintings and to see these afresh in the context of recent works in which light, colour, movement and space are drawn into fresh and unexpected relationships. Numerous preparatory working studies are reproduced to illuminate the artist's complex and fascinating working processes." "Essays from Paul Moorhouse, Richard Shiff and Robert Kudielka provide an overview of her art and career, along with new insights into the relation of Riley's work to theories of aesthetics and perception."--BOOK JACKET
