L'oeil de verre = Wie mit einem Glausage by Frédéric Compain( Visual )
4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bill Utermohlen (1933-2007), an American painter living in London, had the misfortune to come of age as a figurative artist in an era when conceptual and abstract art ruled the day. But in 1995, Utermohlen was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The diagnosis would change his life - and transform his art. Almost immediately, he began a series of paintings called "The Conversation Pieces." The brightly colored works, reminiscent of Matisse, are set at home, featuring his wife, friends and colleagues in conversation. Notably absent - or present, but distant from the other figures - is Utermohlen himself, already isolated by his art. That distance would become more pronounced in Utermohlen's last and greatest body of work: a series of increasingly dark and grim self-portraits
Alain Robbe-Grillet by Frédéric Compain( Visual )
9 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in French and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
En relatant son propre parcours de l'œuvre de Robbe-Grillet, Frédéric Compain offre un portrait complice de celui qui, surnommé Raspoutine à l'école, s'est toujours délecté à l'idée d'être exaspérant et "doit sa carrière à la haine". La lecture par l'écrivain de certaines de ses œuvres, des extraits de ses films, la visite de sa propriété en Normandie et un voyage à Ouessant (où il cherche un végétal ami d'enfance) complètent ce jeu tacite. (Christine Rheys)

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nationen malen keine Bilder. Doch können Bilder die Geschichte einer Nation erzählen? Wie spiegelt die Malerei in Deutschland über ein Jahrhundert hinweg die Sehnsucht nach Einheit und einem Kaiserreich wider, das Streben nach Modernität und Macht, die Kriege und Wunden, das Abdriften in Nationalismus und totalitären Wahnsinn in diesem Land in der Mitte Europas? Von Caspar David Friedrich über Anton von Werner und Arnold Böcklin bis hin zu John Heartfield, Otto Dix und Georg Grosz: Die Künstler wirkten, auf je ihre Weise, an der Entstehung einer gemeinsamen Nation und der Entwicklung einer deutschen Identität mit. Rund 200 Werke wurden für die Ausstellung "De l'Allemagne" im Pariser Louvre zusammengestellt. Sie sind ein Schlüssel zum Verständnis der kulturellen, sozialen und politischen Entwicklung Deutschlands im 19. und zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts in Europa
