Cy Twombly : cycles and seasons by Cy Twombly ( Book )
12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 595 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

Floh by Tacita Dean ( Book )
9 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The family snapshot is the most humble of photographic genres. It is also the most ubiquitous. But although the snapshot has been an enormous formal influence on contemporary art photography, and although we are familiar with its aesthetic and it is related to other vernacular photographs--to the studio portrait, to the postcard--and to social documentary photographs, it nevertheless remains one of the most enigmatic, uncertain and fugitive of documents. Its immediate meanings are closed and private, known only to the individuals involved and their immediate circle. For this reason, while there have been many photobooks constructed from vernacular photographs, there have been relatively few featuring snapshots. One of the most successful is Floh, by the British artist Tacita Dean and her collaborator Martyn Ridgewell. The images in Floh are photographs discovered by Dean in flea markets across Europe and the United States--family portraits, holiday snapshots, scenic views, rites of passage and everyday, banal occurrences. By itself, each image's narrative remains closed and silent, but inserted into the larger sequence of the book the collected pictures begin to resonate and beguile with tremendous poignancy."--The Photobook : A History Volume II / Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. London : Phaidon, 2004
