13 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nulle star du violon n'est une île - bien que certains virtuoses semblent vouloir affirmer le contraire -, et pourtant l'esprit de collaboration de David Oïstrakh était certainement unique. Il est donc tout à fait approprié de le voir ici savourer la compagnie d'autres grands musiciens. Plusieurs paradoxes sont en jeu ici, tenant avant tout à cet esprit affable et généreux, tout simplement grand de naissance. D'une part, il était comme le dit un de ses collègues, "un virtuose qui se moquait de la virtuosité" ; de l'autre, même s'il disait à son fils Igor qu'il n'existait pas de violoniste "numéro un", mais plusieurs "numéros un", ses pairs étaient prompts à le placer sur un piédestal, en tant qu'homme et en tant que musicien. Une saine constance caractérise les trois interprétations réunies ici, qui s'étendent sur sept années ; mais l'intensité personnelle avec laquelle il répond à chacun des ses trois collègues varie subtilement."--Brochure

Edward Hopper and the blank canvas( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary examines American realist painter Edward Hopper's life, including testimonies from people who knew him, and by those inspired by his work, like German filmmaker Wim Wenders. From Mad Men to Blade Runner and The Simpsons, Hopper's scenes of modern American life, most notably Nighthawks, have been recreated in myriad films and TV shows, while his style has influenced the likes of Alfred Hitchcock and Terrence Malick. Obsessed with the everyday, Hopper depicted all-night diners, cinemas, gas stations, hotel lobbies, and a theater, filling them with seemingly isolated and alienated figures because he believed loneliness was an inherent feature of city life. This documentary reveals the social and cultural context surrounding Hopper's work, while also exploring his independence as a painter, the many references to his work in film, and the widespread reproduction of his works
