Contemporary art in print : the publications of Charles Booth-Clibborn and his imprint the Paragon Press, 1995-2000 by Patrick Elliott( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since The Paragon Press was founded in 1986, it has established a reputation as one of the major print publishers of our time. Based in London, Paragon specialises in producing original print series by leading contemporary British artists, including Damien Hirst, Gary Hume, Anish Kapoor and Rachel Whiteread. This book illustrates and documents all twenty-five projects produced between 1995 and 2000, a period which has witnessed an extraordinary growth in interest in contemporary British art. Most of the series contain around 10 prints each, while some are much larger: the Chapmans' Disasters of War set comprises 83 separate etchings. Working in series, the artists have created narratives, or through repetition and emphasis have built a larger, grander statement than would be possible with single prints. In this way each project counts as an exhibition in itself, and most have taken months, if not years, to complete. The print techniques include screenprint, etching, linocut, woodcut and pigment prints." "The book contains a foreword by Charles Booth-Clibborn, founder of The Paragon Press, an introduction by Patrick Elliott, Assistant Keeper at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh, and an essay by Jeremy Lewison, Keeper of Collections at the Tate, London. The print projects are illustrated in colour in chronological order and are followed by detailed narratives, mainly based on in-depth interviews, by Patrick Elliott. There are biographies and bibliographies of each artist. The book offers a thorough and indispensible survey of the many different trends in Contemporary British Art."--Jacket
Tracey Emin : 20 years by Tracey Emin( Book )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tracey Emin is one of the most famous artists working in Britain today. Born in London in 1963, she grew up in Margate and experienced a difficult childhood. Her teenage years provided the inspiration for much of her later work, which is autobiographical and often shockingly frank. This book accompanies her first retrospective exhibition in the UK, at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh and covers the full range of her work over the past twenty years, including embroidered blankets, paintings, sculptures, films, neons, and drawings. It features a biographical introduction by Patrick Elliott, Chief Curator at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, and a text by the artist Julian Schnabel."--Jacket
Tony Cragg sculptures and drawings by Patrick Elliott( Book )

14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in 1949, Tony Cragg is one of today's most celebrated and popular sculptors. Before studying art he worked as a laboratory technician, which has had an enormous influence on his practice. His work fuses art and science in a rich and arresting way, and he works in an astonishing variety of styles and materials, including bronze, glass, plaster, wood, fibreglass, and plastics. In 1988 he won the Turner Prize. This beautiful book, celebrating the work of one of the world's most successful and respected artists, concentrates on works made in the last ten years, but it includes also examples of earlier work, and has been produced in close consultation with Cragg

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art's collection of Dada and Surrealism is regarded as one of the best and most complete in the world: it features masterpieces by artists such as Max Ernst, René Magritte, Joan Miró, Paul Delvaux, Yves Tanguy, Alberto Giacometti and Marcel Duchamp.

The amazing world of M.C. Escher by M. C Escher( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dutch artist M.C. Escher (1898-1972) created some of the most celebrated and extraordinary images in twentieth-century art, yet he remains an elusive figure. In the 1960s, when his reputation sky-rocketed, he was championed on the one hand by leading mathematicians who admired his grasp of geometry, and on the other by hippies who claimed him as the godfather of psychedelic art. Rock stars and teenagers were equally amazed by Escher's ingenuity and imagination, yet the art world looked upon him - and still looks upon him - with reserved judgement; in short, his work is ripe for rediscovery and reappraisal. This catalogue accompanies a major exhibition - the largest ever held in the UK - of nearly 100 of Escher's greatest drawings and prints. Based on the world-renowned M.C. Escher collection at the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, the Netherlands, it has been organised by the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh, and tours to the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London. -- Provided by publisher
True to life : British realist painting in the 1920s & 1930s by Patrick Elliott( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

British realist art of the 1920s and 1930s is visually stunning - strong, seductive and demonstrating extraordinary technical skill. Despite this, it is often overshadowed by abstract art. This book presents the very first overview of British realist painting of the period, showcasing outstanding works from private and public collections across the UK. Of the forty artists featured in the show, many were major figures in the 1920s and 1930s but later passed out of fashion as abstraction and Pop Art became the dominant trends in the post-war years. In the last decade their work has re-emerged and interest in them has grown. Interwar realist art embraces a number of different styles, but is characterised by fine drawing, meticulous craftsmanship, a tendency towards classicism and an aversion to impressionism and visible brushwork. Artists such as Gerald Leslie Brockhurst, Meredith Frampton, James Cowie and Winifred Knights combine fastidious Old Master detail with 1920s modernity. Stanley Spencer spans various camps while Lucian Freud's early work can be seen as a realist coda which continued into the 1940s and beyond00Exhibition: Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, Scotland (01.07. - 29.10.2017)
The two Roberts : Robert Colquhoun & Robert MacBryde by Patrick Elliott( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'two Roberts': Robert Colquhoun (1914-1962) and Robert MacBryde (1913-1966)', were two of the most important and celebrated Scottish artists of the twentieth century. Colquhoun studied at Glasgow School of Art where he met Robert MacBryde. The two became lovers. They were part of a celebrated Soho group that included Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud. Their post-cubist work - much influenced by Picasso - became enormously successful. In the 1950s they established worldwide reputations. Colquhoun's drinking and temperament caught up with him and he died almost penniless in 1962. MacBryde was killed in a car accident four years later. This catalogue with over 90 illustrations accompanies the only show to ever exhibit both artists together. The authors refer to previously unpublished letters and explore the 'Two Roberts' individual art practice as well as works the two executed together. 0Exhibition: Scottish National Galery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, U.K. (22.11.2014-24.05.2015)

Joan Eardley : a sense of place by Patrick Elliott( Book )

2 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joan Eardley (1921-1963) is one of Scotland's most admired artists. During a career that lasted barely fifteen years, she concentrated on two very distinct themes: children in the Townhead area of central Glasgow, and the fishing village of Catterline, just south of Aberdeen, with its leaden skies and wild sea. The contrast between this urban and rural subject matter is self-evident, but the two are not, at heart, so very different. Townhead and Catterline were home to tight-knit communities, living under extreme pressure: Townhead suffered from overcrowding and poverty, and Catterline from depopulation brought about by the declining fishing industry. Eardley was inspired by the humanity she found in both places. These two intertwining strands are the focus of this book, which looks in detail at Eardley's working processes.
