Elmer Bischoff : the ethics of paint by Susan Landauer ( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Elmer Bischoff (1916-1991) is generally regarded as one of the leaders among the artists in the San Francisco Bay Area who, after contributing to the local emergence of Abstract Expressionism during the 1940s and 50s, shifted the terms of their spectacularly sensual brushwork to recognizable imagery. Bill Berkson writes that if "David Park was the classicist of the founding triad of the Bay Area Figurative painters, and Richard Diebenkorn the modernist, Bischoff was the romantic." Designed to accompany a major retrospective of Bischoff's work, this volume is illustrated with duotones and color plates that faithfully capture the subtle variations in shade that characterize the painter's oeuvre. Berkson and Susan Landauer, both of whom knew Bischoff, provide the definitive view of the life, art, and teaching career of this important artist."--BOOK JACKET
Milton Avery : the late paintings by Robert Carleton Hobbs ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The painter Milton Avery is the among the most beloved of American artists. A cool modernist, he is known chiefly for his vividly colored landscapes and intimate scenes of family life. Long overshadowed by Abstract Expressionism, his art has recently begun to be reassessed and its place in the history of modernism restored." "Robert Hobbs explores the development of Avery's painting in this crucial phase and draws insightful connections between it and Wallace Stevens's innovative poetry, written during the same period. This comparison will intrigue devotees of American poetry and American art." "A 1958 essay on Avery by the renowned critic Clement Greenberg, reprinted here, places the artist in the vanguard of an art that unites abstraction and representation, American ingenuity and an international sensibility. Altogether, this book takes a many-faceted approach to the presentation of an exquisite group of artworks."--Jacket

Georgia O'Keeffe : circling around abstraction by Georgia O'Keeffe ( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: One of America's most innovative and popular artists, Georgia O'Keeffe is rightfully celebrated as a pioneer who worked in her own style and on her own terms. Perhaps O'Keeffe's most significant contribution to art history was her unique approach to abstraction. From her groundbreaking charcoal drawings of 1915 to her final paintings from the 1970s over the course of a career spanning more than seven decades Georgia O'Keeffe consistently incorporated swirling circular forms into her compositions. Her innovative use of this motif as a means of abstraction stands in contrast to the strategies adopted by many of her peers, which tended to be Cubist-based, using straight lines and angles rather than curves and circles. Using the circle and its kin-the ellipse, the oval, the spiral, and the arcing line-O'Keeffe explored the shifting terrain between abstraction and representation, sometimes calling upon them forms to represent a mood, a reaction to a sensation, or the spiritual essence of a subject

An American in Europe : the photography collection of Baroness Jeane von Oppenheim from the Norton Museum of Art ( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Can one tell the history of photography in yet another new way? If you let yourself be guided by the selection of works from the very personal collection of the Cologne-based collector Baroness Jeane von Oppenheim presented in this book, you experience the development of photography in the 20th century, not in a chronological fashion but according to the transition of portraits, landscapes, architecture, still life, fashion and film. Oppenheim gave her outstanding collection of about 700 photographs to the Norton Museum of Art in Palm Beach, Florida, in 1998. This book is focussed on unusual, atypical examples from the oeuvres of 125 seminal artists such as Berenice Abbot, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Albert Renger-Patzsch, Alexander Rodchenko and August Sander. 132 illustrations in duplex and color illustrate the aesthetic difference existing between various types of imagery, exemplifying positions from different continents, cultures, and periods. This extraordinary combination offers viewers a fresh new look into the world of photography."--BOOK JACKET
