George Condo : painting reconfigured by Simon Baker( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and German and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With his arresting, unsettling style, George Condo emerged out of the dynamism of the New York art scene in the early 1980s, and he has been restlessly painting, drawing and sculpting--bringing forms into the world in one way or another--ever since. Reliably inconsistent, Condos references and inspirations, in both style and content, ricochet deliriously around the canon of western art history. Somewhere between his fake Tiepolos, reconfigured Manets, impossibly intricate paintings that seem to be abstract until you get up close, his perpetually screaming cubist hags, and the orgiastic misdemeanors of Rodrigo, Condo has invented, mastered, and expanded not just one painterly language but the whole lexicon. Working closely with the artist, writer and art historian Simon Baker has combined biographical, chronological, and thematic approaches to survey George Condo's work and career to date. An introductory essay on Condo's contradictory nature and a chapter exploring his early career are followed by three thematic chapters that look at the years from 1984 to the present, tracing Condo's different systematic approaches to the language of painting, exploring his relationship to the concept of abstraction, and probing the darker side of his psychological iconography

Ghost of chance by William S Burroughs( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ghost of Chance is an adventure story set in the jungle of Madagascar and filled with the obsessions that mark the work of the man who Norman Mailer once called, "the only American writer possessed by genius." While tripping through the author's trademark concerns - drugs, paranoia, and lemurs, this short novel tells an important story about environmental devastation in a way that only Burroughs can tell it
George Condo : one hundred women by George Condo( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in German and English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American painter George Condo, who was born in New Hampshire in 1957, has occupied a prominent position in the Western art scene from Cologne to New York for more than twenty years. He regularly succeeds in surprising viewers with his grotesque, often tradition-conscious, and almost classically Surrealistic paintings. Condo's own models and partners in dialogue range from Goya and Velazqaez to Picasso and Warhol, in whose Factory he earned this living for a brief period in the early eighties. Along with Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and Julian Schnabel, he was instrumental in the international revival of painting after 1982. This retrospective publication focuses on Condo's favorite subject: women. Featuring some fifty paintings, forty drawings, and five sculptures, the book presents a motif that appears in various forms in his art - in nudes, portraits, and art-historical collages. Apart from Picasso and Mattise, no other twentieth-century artist has dealt with this theme as intensely and imaginatively as George Condo."--BOOK JACKET

Book of sketches, 1952-57 by Jack Kerouac( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1952 and 1953 as he wandered around America, Jack Kerouac jotted down spontaneous prose poems, or "sketches" as he called them, on small notebooks that he kept in his shirt pockets. The poems recount his travels'New York, North Carolina, Lowell (Massachusetts, Kerouac's birthplace), San Francisco, Denver, Kansas, Mexico'observations, and meditations on art and life. The poems are often strung together so that over the course of several of them, a little story'or travelogue'appears, complete in itself. Published for the first time, Book of Sketches offers a luminous, intimate, and transcendental glimpse of one of the most original voices of the twentieth century at a key time in his literary and spiritual development
