Hopper by Edward Hopper( Book )

24 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents a definitive Hopper monograph. Published for a massive retrospective at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, and the Grand Palais in Paris, it approaches Hopper's relatively small oeuvre in two sections. The first covers the artist's formative years from approximately 1900 to 1924, examining a selection of sketches, paintings, drawings, illustrations, prints and watercolors, which are considered alongside works by painters that influenced Hopper, such as Winslow Homer, Robert Henri, John Sloan, Edgar Degas and Walter Sickert. The second section considers the years from 1925 onwards, addressing his mature output through chronological but thematic groupings."--Jacket flap
Vermeer by Stefano Zuffi( Book )

27 editions published in 1999 in 4 languages and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virtually unknown until the 19th century, Jan Vermeer is now considered one of the great Dutch artists, celebrated for his radiant, naturalistic light. The book presents Vermeer's life and works within the cultural, social, and political context of their time
Gauguin and the origins of symbolism by Paul Gauguin( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the mid-1880s until his departure for Tahiti in 1891, Gauguin moved beyond Impressionism to become the leading figure of the Symbolist movement in painting. This departure from Impressionism led him to question the entire 'naturalist' tradition of European art from the Renaissance onwards. He sacrificed all of painting's descriptive devices in favour of line and flat colour. His path towards Symbolism can also be characterised as a 'primitive' quest, developed both in iconography and style. On the iconographic level, this tendency starts from the use of a number of pastoral themes representing scenes of rural life. This spiritual return was accompanied by a stylistic regression, a leap from naturalism towards archaic modes of representation. The volume follows this process through a series of encounters between Gauguin and his masters, his contemporaries and his pupils."--Jacket
The spectacular art of Jean-Léon Gérôme : 1824-1904 by Jean Léon Gérôme( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gérôme was one of the most famous artists of his day, yet throughout his career he was the object of polemical debate and harsh criticism. Long stigmatized as the embodiment of sterile academicism, he is now considered to be one of the greatest painters of the nineteenth century. Gérôme's interest in Antiquity, his theatrical approach to history painting, and his complex relationships with the Orient and with the new medium of photography all contributed to his highly inventive imagery. Acquired by American collectors at an early date, Gérôme's oeuvre fired the new world's historical imagination and even inspired its favorite medium, the movies. This catalogue traces Gérôme's unique career and features his major works--from history paintings to polychrome sculptures--thereby casting the nineteenth century in a new light."--Page 4 of cover
Wyeth : Andrew & Jamie in the studio by Timothy J Standring( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For decades, Andrew and Jamie Wyeth have provided a continuous backdrop against which the twists and turns of American art can be compared, contrasted, and benchmarked. By approaching the Wyeths and their art with a specificity that transcends content and biography, Wyeth: Andrew and Jamie in the Studio provides readers with the opportunity to move beyond a visceral reaction and toward an understanding of the artists' work, media, mindset, and studio practice. Readers will be able to assess their predilection for the images in a more nuanced way, underpinning their reaction to an emotionally charged image with knowledge and practical understanding"
Chagall : Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Fundación Caja Madrid : 14/2-20/5/2012 by Marc Chagall( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marc Chagall is justly famed as one of modernism's greatest colorists, and its most articulate painter of dispossession, exile and human joy. Chagall also uniquely reconciled the motifs and concerns of Jewish culture with his strange amalgam of Symbolism, Fauvism and Cubism. His lifespan encompassed two world wars, the October Revolution of 1917 and continual uprooting, with lengthy spells in Paris, Moscow and New York; although he painted the ravages of these wars and the sufferings of the Jewish people, and although his art is steeped in the melancholia of exile, it never ceased to affirm life and to praise it. This beautifully produced volume, with its abundance of color plates and first-rate scholarship, celebrates Chagall in all his diversity, reproducing paintings, book illustrations to the Bible and works by Gogol and La Fontaine, stained glass, stage sets, ceramics, tapestries and prints. These works are contextualized in essays by Chagall scholars Meret Meyer, Jean-Louis Prat, Ekaterina Selezneva, Angela Lampe and Ángeles Caso, and in an extensive chronology of the artist's life, amply illustrated with photographs from his personal album
Richard Estes by Richard Estes( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La exposición recorrerá la trayectoria pictórica de Estes desde los años sesenta hasta hoy, con la intención de documentar su desarrollo como principal fundador y uno de los grandes del fotorrealismo americano. Mediante la utilización de la fotografía como fuente visual directa, el artista se especializó en representaciones de paisajes reales. Sin embargo, a diferencia de otros fotorrealistas que traspasan directamente la foto al lienzo, él la utiliza sólo como punto de partida, tomando varias vistas del lugar escogido y jugando con ellas, hasta llegar a la imagen definitiva, que convierte en una suerte de ilusión óptica

Antonio López-García : paintings and sculpture by Antonio López-García( Book )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Spanish painter, draughtsman and sculptor Antonio Lopez Garcia is so widely celebrated for the staggering exactitude of his painterly realism that it's sometimes easy to neglect the magical, delicate atmospheres he conjures through his technical abilities. His paintings of what in anyone else's hands would seem the blandest subject matter imaginable--a blank wall, a coat hook, a kitchen sink, the interior of a refrigerator--teem with an infused, loving scrutiny that betrays the months and years of labor the artist devotes to each work

Photorealism : 50 years of hyperrealistic painting( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"They devote themselves to the veneer of modern everyday life, the mirrored world of surfaces. Reflective shop windows, limousines with shiny chrome, garishly colored plastic kitsch, and urban scenes have been the favorite subjects of the Photorealists for fifty years. In a complicated work process, the artists employ technical aids to create painted illusions: they photograph their source materials, transfer them with the aid of slide projectors or scans, and then capture them precisely with the brush or spray gun on canvas. This publication presents the impressive works of art by leading figures in this movement, starting with sixties artists such as Richard Estes, Chuck Close, and Don Eddy and moving through three generations of artists to the hyper-realistic visual experiences of contemporary digital artists such as Yigal Ozeri, Raphaella Spence, and Robert Neffson."--Publisher's website
Zurbarán : a new perspective : June 9-September 13, 2015 by Francisco de Zurbarán( Book )

13 editions published in 2015 in 3 languages and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers the most comprehensive overview in print--and the first substantial English-language monograph in decades--on the great 17th-century Spanish painter Zurbarán. It spans his entire career, from his earliest commissions to key works from his mature period, plus works recently rediscovered over the past few years. 0A contemporary of Velázquez, Zurbarán developed an austere vision that combined exacting realism with a palpable mysticism. Though he was sometimes known as "the Spanish Caravaggio" for his harsh use of chiaroscuro, Zurbarán's particular achievement was his creation of a more austere quietism, and a less foreboding if more melancholy atmosphere--qualities which lent themselves ideally to such genres as still lifes and his portraits of monks and martyrs, and which also ensured his importance for early modernism (especially Cubism).0Examining this beloved painter's oeuvre across six themed sections, Zurbarán: A New Perspective includes work by a selection of his most talented pupils, and by his son Juan de Zurbarán, also a superb still-life painter. 0Exhibition: Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid, Spain (30.06-12.10.2015)
Pissarro by Camille Pissarro( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Humble and colossal," as his friend Cézanne described him, Camille Pissarro is at once the most important and the least familiar of the leading Impressionist painters. As a mentor to that group, which he helped to convene, Pissarro was responsible for drafting the statutes of the artists' cooperative that launched the famous Impressionist exhibitions, which were the first to take art outside the academic confines of Paris' salon exhibitions; he was also the only painter to participate in all eight of those landmark shows, from 1874 to 1886, and was the first painter to develop and sustain the plein air practice for which the Impressionists are famed. This volume presents Pissarro as one of the great pioneers of modern art, appraising his career through five thematic and chronological chapters that offer a tour of his preferred landscapes and cities: "On the Road to Impressionism," "Louveciennes-London-Louveciennes 1869-72," "Pontoise Revisited 1872-82," "Eragny Landscapes 1884-1903" and "City Views." It includes essays by some of the most renowned Pissarro scholars: Richard R. Brettell, who writes on the artist's involvement with anarchism; Joachim Pissarro (one of the authors of the Pissarro catalogue raisonné) on Monet and Pissarro's relationship in the 1890s; and Guillermo Solana on the motif of the road in Pissarro. 00Exhibition: Obra Social 'La Caixa', CaixaForum, Barcelona, Spain (15.10.2013-26.01.2014)

POP : pop art myths by Paloma Alarcó( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza is presenting Pop Art Myths, the first exhibition on this subject in Madrid since Pop Art at the Museo Reina Sofía in 1992. More than twenty years later, the exhibition’s curator Paloma Alarcó, Head of Modern Painting at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, will offer a reassessment of this artistic trend from a 21st century viewpoint. Featuring more than 100 works ranging from pioneering British Pop Art to the classic American version and its expansion into Europe, the exhibition aims to trace the shared sources of international Pop Art and to undertake a revision of the myths that have traditionally defined the movement. It will reveal how the legendary images created by artists of the stature of Warhol, Rauschenberg, Wesselmann, Lichtenstein, Hockney, Hamilton and Equipo Crónica, among many others, conceal an ironic and innovative code of perception of reality and one that still prevails in contemporary art today. The exhibition is sponsored by Japan Tobacco International (JTI) and will include works from more than fifty museums and private collections around the world, with important loans from the National Gallery of Washington, the Tate, London, the IVAM, Valencia, and the prestigious Mugrabi Collection in New York, to name but a few.00Exhibition: Museo de arte Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid, Spain (10.6.-14.9.2014)
