Florine Stettheimer : painting poetry by Florine Stettheimer( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new look at the art of one of the most charming and idiosyncratic personalities of early 20th-century New York Florine Stettheimer (1871-1944). Stettheimer was a New York original: a society lady who hosted an avant-garde salon in her Manhattan home, a bohemian and a flapper, a poet, a theater designer, and above all an influential painter with a sharp satirical wit. Stettheimer collaborated with Gertrude Stein and Virgil Thomson, befriended (and took French lessons from) Marcel Duchamp, and was a member of Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O'Keeffe's artistic and intellectual circle. Beautifully illustrated with 150 color images, including the majority of the artist's extant paintings, as well as drawings, theater designs, and ephemera, this volume also highlights Stettheimer's poetry and gives her a long overdue critical reassessment.

Broadly inspired by the history of painting - from Rubens and Veronese to the muscular expressionism of Willem de Kooning - Brown's personal vision transcends classical notions of genre and narrative, freeing subject matter from its original context and positioning it within a new aesthetic reality

"New York-based British painter Cecily Brown (born 1969) makes sumptuous oil paintings combining abstract and figurative elements, art-historical references and erotic, fragmented bodies in compositions so densely layered that one of Brown's paintings can look "like an enormous colored anthill, with thousands of insects following each other, climbing over each other, hiding and reappearing, leaving colorful traces of their movements," as Danilo Eccher writes in his catalogue essay. This substantial monograph is published to accompany Brown's survey exhibition at the Galleria Civica d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Turin, and features nearly 50 works, including paintings, works on paper, gouache and watercolors as well as seven monotypes, representing the range of Brown's work as well as its unifying concerns. Also included are newly commissioned essays by Danilo Eccher, Alessandro Rabottini and Anna Musini."--Amazon.com, viewed 7/6/2015

Cecily Brown : the sleep around and the lost and found by Cecily Brown( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cecily Brown's paintings are often described as works which move between figuration and abstraction; a distinction and categorisation, which interestingly does not arise for the artist herself, who instead wants the best of both worlds and not to describe, but rather invent. The brushstrokes on the linen are so fluidly and virtuosically placed, the viewer gets the feeling that something organic and alive has taken possession of the painting's surface. The works initially appear as a whole; it is at first almost impossible to decipher an anchor or point of repose - and thus demands extended viewing. Cecily Brown is inspired by the study of old and new masters. Hogarth and de Kooning play particularly significant roles in this preoccupation, as well as Bosch, Breughel, Degas and Goya, to name just a few. Compositionally however icons of pop-culture, such as record covers can equally play a god fatherly role for the beginnings of a painting, whose finial result the artist never imagines in advance

"Cecily Brown creates lush, visceral canvases based on a combination of figuration and abstraction. Her technical proficiency has earned her comparisons to Lucian Freud, Willem de Kooning, and Francis Bacon, yet it is her unique ability to convey the pleasurable and fleeting aspects of sensation that drive her work." "Cecily Brown rapidly rose to success in the late 1990's, and was credited with having contributed to the resurgence of painting at the turn of the millennium. With a visual repertoire indebted as much to the classical themes of the old masters as to porn magazines and Hollywood films, Brown's paintings challenge traditional interpretations and compel us to reconsider the act of painting from a decidedly feminine viewpoint."--Jacket

Cecily Brown & Jim Lewis. The English garden by Jim Lewis( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like nature, only better. Nature with all the awkward bits smoothed out. And then picturesque, like a landscape painting, states Jim Lewis' protagonist, defining an English garden in Cecily Brown's newest book of paintings. An imaginative pas de deux, The English Garden sees British painter Brown (born 1969) and American writer Lewis (born 1963) contribute acutely detailed and darkly sensuous allusions to the traditional 18th-century English landscape garden. Thirty-nine of Brown's paintings are interspersed throughout this compact hardcover publication as tipped-in images. The largely abstract works, with glimpses of figurative elements, are a dichotomy of warm and subdued strokes of color, each containing an expansive landscape unto itself. Novelist and critic Jim Lewis' story transports the reader to the English countryside and investigates the seductive pull of the natural world in tandem with Brown's paintings. Combining two major voices in contemporary literature and painting, this volume is a truly gorgeous production

Eight short films explore the fine line where art and pornography intersect. The films highlight controversial issues about the representation of sexuality in art; opening up debate of the question whether art can be disguised as pornography or whether pornography can be represented as art or something else altogether
