Paul Strand : master of modern photography by Paul Strand( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through his amazing variety of innovative images, photographer Paul Strand (1890-1976) played a crucial role in establishing the medium's significance as a modern art form. Celebrating the recent acquisition of the core print collection of the Paul Strand Archive by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this stunning book comprehensively reassesses the artist's career in light of current scholarship and critical debates about his work. Featuring more than 250 plates, the catalogue includes many of Strand's iconic early photos such as 'Wall Street' and 'Blind Woman' alongside lesser-known master prints from all phases of his career. Discussing the artist's prolific career, from his emergence in Alfred Stieglitz's circle in New York in the early part of the century to his years spent working abroad in Mexico, France, Italy and Africa, Peter Barberie positions Strand as a remarkably independent modernist whose priorities shifted at several points and were often counter to prevailing trends. Amanda N. Bock focuses on the years 1930-50, when Strand thoroughly explored the role of politics in modern art and relentlessly sought to identify the greater purposes of photography and filmmaking. The edited transcript from a roundtable discussion among key scholars touches upon many aspects of Strand's various projects from the 1930s to the 1960s
Cy Twombly Gallery : the Menil Collection, Houston by Cy Twombly( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American artist Cy Twombly (1928-2011) created paintings and sculptures that defied conventional classification. In his works, Twombly incorporated a wide variety of elements, from scrawls and calligraphic marks to text from poetry and mythology. Opening in 1995, the Cy Twombly Gallery at the Menil Collection was designed by Renzo Piano and has become a pilgrimage destination for the artist's avid admirers. The product of close collaboration between the Menil, Twombly, and the Dia Center for the Arts, the Gallery is one of the most extraordinary representations of any single 20th-century artist. Twombly chose the art that would be featured and worked closely with the builders to create the most appropriate venue for its presentation. This sumptuous volume showcases thirty-three paintings and eleven sculptures, including an immense 13 x 52-foot painting. Featuring large-scale, close-up details of many of the works, the book looks at paint, plaster, paintings, sculptures, and the "cues" that Twombly gave in his art about this special collection."--Publisher's description

Carrie Mae Weems : Kitchen table series by Carrie Mae Weems( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Kitchen Table Series' is the first publication dedicated solely to this early and important body of work by the American artist Carrie Mae Weems. The 20 photographs and 14 text panels that make up the artwork tell a story of one woman's life, as conducted in the intimate setting of her kitchen. The kitchen, one of the primary spaces of domesticity and the traditional domain of women, frames her story, revealing to us her relationships--with lovers, children, friends--and her own sense of self, in her varying projections of strength, vulnerability, aloofness, tenderness, and solitude. 'Kitchen Table Series' seeks to reposition and reimagine the possibility of women and the possibility of people of color, and has to do with, in the artist's words "unrequited love."" -- Publisher's website

Hiroshi Sugimoto : Dioramas by Hiroshi Sugimoto( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Hiroshi Sugimoto: Still Life' includes 'Polar Bear' (1976), his first photograph from the Diorama series, exhibited along with later works from the 1980s, 1990s, and, most recently 2012. Where many of the earlier silver gelatin prints present animals, a number of the 2012 photographs including Mixed Deciduous Forest and Olympic Rain Forest focus on natural landscapes. He has likened the record created by photography to a process of fossilization - the evidence of a moment suspended in time
Hiroshi Sugimoto : seascapes by Hiroshi Sugimoto( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Water and air. These primordial substances, which make possible all life on earth, are the subject of Hiroshi Sugimoto's 'Seascapes' series. For over thirty years, Sugimoto has traveled the world photographing its seas, producing a body of work that is an extended meditation on the passage of time and the natural history of the earth. Sugimoto has called photography the "fossilization of time," and the Seascapes photographs simultaneously capture a discrete moment in time but also evoke a feeling of timelessness. This volume, the second in a series of books on Sugimoto's art, presents the complete series of over 200 Seascapes, some of which have never before been reproduced. All are identical in format, with the horizon line precisely bifurcating each image, though at times the sea and sky almost merge into one seamless unit. Each photograph captures a moment when the sea is placid, almost flat. Within this strict format, however, he has created a limitless array of portraits of his subjects. An essay by Munesuke Mita, Professor of Sociology at the University of Tokyo, examines contemporary art through a sociological lens, comparing the recent history of art with mathematical predictions of population growth. He connects Sugimoto's body of work to this unique analysis of the art world

Hiroshi Sugimoto : theaters by Hiroshi Sugimoto( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For almost four decades, Sugimoto has been photographing the interiors of theaters using a large-format camera and no lighting other than the projection of the running movie. He opens the aperture when a film begins and closes it when it ends. In the resulting images, the screen becomes a luminous white box, its ambient light subtly bringing forward the rich architectural details of these spaces."--Publisher's description

Warren Rohrer by Warren Rohrer( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Warren Rohrer' (1927-95) emerged from the experimental Philadelphia art scene in the early 1970s and became known for his luminous, color-saturated abstractions. This monograph, authored by philosopher and art critic David Carrier, is the first to trace Rohrer's trajectory over 40 years and describes the highly unorthodox arc of his life, from Mennonite stock in rural Pennsylvania to prominence as an exceptional abstract painter of the late 20th century. Carrier's account gives a rich understanding of Rohrer's quest to unite paint with atmosphere, land and light, and his enduring connection to Lancaster County, where he grew up. An essay by Elaine Mehalakes looks at the enigmatic late work of the artist, his Field Language series. The book includes 120 beautifully reproduced paintings, drawings and sketchbooks, and an illustrated chronology, representing the most comprehensive presentation of Rohrer's life and work to date

François Catroux by David Netto( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first volume on François Catroux is a comprehensive consideration of the work and life of an international master of interior design. François Catroux is an innovator and explorer in interior design, who has always been a master of contemporary style. From his early days as a design prodigy, creating space-age boutiques for a house of couture and apartments that drew from Art Deco and modern design, to chic, mirror-studded interiors rich with glamour and elegant refinement in residences in Hong Kong, New York, and London, Catroux is at home in the vast world of design. His spaces may surprise with the introduction of irregular elements--a chandelier of elk horn or pink fluorescent lighting in a hallway--but Catroux's hallmark sensibility combines the majesty and grandeur of high ceilings, elegant moldings, and gossamer draperies with elements that suggest comfort and tasteful, restrained opulence. Go-to accoutrements include sumptuous sofas, rich carpeting, gentle lighting, rooms lined with books, and ship staterooms in warm wood paneling with brass lamps, all measured according to a modern eye. This book looks at Catroux's career chronologically, featuring his first projects in 1968 through his latest, completed only this year, and includes the interiors of houses and apartments around the globe, from Paris to New York, Hong Kong to Los Angeles. Luxuriously photographed, this volume is more than just a design monograph on one of the great, and so far relatively untold, careers in the history of design--it is also a lively and intimate read about a life lived in great style
The long never by Hiroshi Sugimoto( Book )

"The Long Never" is a unique special edition book containing sixty-five artworks by Hiroshi Sugimoto. Composed of photographs from five series: 'Meteorites', 'Dioramas', 'Pre Photographic Time Recording Devices', 'Lightning Fields', and 'Seascapes'; the sequence of images in this book conjures a natural history of the planet, perhaps even one untouched by humans.
