Most widely held works by Armand Hammer Museum of Art and Cultural Center
Sexual politics : Judy Chicago's Dinner party in feminist art history by Amelia Jones( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume, which is published in conjunction with an exhibition organized by UCLA at the Armand Hammer Museum of Art and Cultural Center, provide a major reevaluation of The Dinner Party and the debates that it has prompted, placing it within the broader context of art history and theory. Presenting works dating from the early 1960s to the present by other feminist artists, the book explores important issues raised in feminist art history and practice over the last thirty-five years. The works included make clear that The Dinner Party was produced within, and takes its meanings from, a historical matrix in which explorations of female sexuality, ideals of beauty, domesticity, violence against women, the questioning of male authority, the diversity of female experience, and other concerns have served as means of addressing issues of identity, oppression, and personal and social power
Theatre in revolution : Russian avant-garde stage design, 1913-1935 by Nancy Van Norman Baer( Book )

3 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surrealist prints by Armand Hammer Museum of Art and Cultural Center( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two insightful essays provide fresh perspectives on the subject: Timothy Baum, a leading authority on surrealism, chronicles the history of surrealist printmaking, and Robert Rainwater, assistant director of art, prints, and photographs at the New York Public Library, examines the relationship between surrealist artists and poets of the era, since many outstanding surrealist prints were created as book illustrations
Scene of the crime by Ralph Rugoff( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scene of the Crime surveys thirty-five years of West Coast art, investigating aesthetic practices that address the art object as a kind of evidence, a clue to absent meanings and prior actions. From seminal works by Ed Ruscha, Bruce Nauman, Barry Le Va, and Vija Celmins to recent works by artists such as Paul McCarthy, James Luna, Anthony Hernandez, and Sharon Lockhart, this art declares that it is about more than meets the eye and raises the suspicion that a significant segment of contemporary art demands a forensic reading
The darker side of light : arts of privacy, 1850-1900 by Peter W Parshall( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For many today, the art of the late nineteenth century is equated with impressionism and post-impressionism. This book with its insightful essays and remarkable works of art presents us with an alternative account of the period." "For collectors the experience of prints, drawings, and small sculptures was often a private affair, like taking a book down from the shelf for quiet enjoyment. Prints and drawings were kept aside, compiled in albums and portfolios, while medals and bronzes were often placed in the seclusion of the library. In short, such works of art were not typically a part of one's day-to-day environment in the manner of a framed object hung on a wall. Rather, they were subject to purposeful study on chosen occasions. From the beginning this element of discreteness allowed for degrees of experiment, leading artists to some times recherche, sometimes enigmatic, and often melancholy subjects that indulged the solitary circumstances of their reception." "By explicating a range of highly engaging, often mysterious and beautiful objects, The Darker Side of Light evokes the shadowed interiors and private introspections that compose a far less familiar history of late nineteenth century art."--Jacket
Royal Persian paintings : the Qajar epoch, 1785-1925 by Layla S Diba( Book )

3 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Iranian art of the Qajar period (1779-1925) has long been neglected and is little understood. This beautifully illustrated book for the first time comprehensively examines the flowering of Persian painting and the visual arts of this period. It focuses on the growth of a remarkable tradition of life-size figural painting, virtually unseen in the Islamic world. Exquisite historic manuscripts, lacquer works, calligraphies and enamels further illuminate the subject. The Qajar Epoch carries essays by leading scholars exploring the historical and social context of the period. Detailed entries describing and interpreting a wide variety of painting and artifacts, many hitherto unseen masterpieces from museums such as the Hermitage and private collections are virtually all illustrated in color and accompanied by translations of inscriptions, technical appendices and extensive bibliographies. A unique reference work, The Qajar Epoch will appeal to both specialist of pre-modern Iran and all those interested in non-Western artistic and cultural traditions

Lee Bontecou : a retrospective by Lee Bontecou( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the leading figures in late twentieth-century art, Lee Bontecou (b. 1931) became widely known for her sculptures in welded steel and canvas, as well as epoxy and plastic, from the 1960s and 1970s. These powerful and original objects, which have been both critically acclaimed and actively collected, incorporate a variety of figurative, organic, and mechanistic references, suggesting states of transformation between the natural and the man-made, order and chaos, delicacy and ferocity." "This monograph presents reproductions of more than fifty sculptures and one hundred drawings, including her celebrated early works as well as later pieces that are little known and have never been publicly exhibited or published. Along with original essays by Elizabeth A.T. Smith, Robert Storr, Mona Hadler, and Donna De Salvo, this volume also includes a reprint of Donald Judd's influential 1965 Arts Magazine article on Bontecou."--Jacket
