Ruth Duckworth : Modernist sculptor by Jo Lauria( Book )
2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In a career spanning more than six decades, Ruth Duckworth has created an immense and important body of work. Her ambition, intensity, and defiance of convention have governed her personal journey - fleeing from Nazi Germany to England at the outset of World War II, and settling in the United States in the mid-1960s - as well as her prodigious artistic output. Although Duckworth started out sculpting in stone, and has created both intimate and large-scale artworks in bronze and other materials, she has since the early 1960s predominantly worked in clay. It is for her work in this medium that she is recognized as one of the twentieth century's most innovative and significant sculptors. A true alchemist of abstraction, Duckworth has consistently produced barrier-bending art that is elegant yet at the same time buoyant, visionary works of seductive refinement, austere power, and radiant immediacy that masterfully continue the aesthetics of modernism into the twenty-first-century." "This volume, which accompanies a major touring exhibition provides a long-overdue assessment of Duckworth's significance. It reveals the conceptual and iconographic foundations that Duckworth's work shares with other important modernist sculptors."--BOOK JACKET
Material difference : soft sculpture and wall works by Polly Ullrich( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Illustrated in these pages are abstract sculptures as well as representations of the human form constructed of materials both usual and unusual, from threads and beads to sticks and cantaloupe skins. The artists represented have mined (and modified) traditional techniques from many fields outside conventional painting and sculpture, especially the textile arts. Critic and curator Polly Ullrich cites the historical precedents and reveals the meanings of these works, all produced since the mid-20th century by 116 distinguished international creators."--BOOK JACKET
Archibald Motley : jazz age modernist by Archibald John Motley( Book )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Featuring more than 140 colour illustrations, this catalogue accompanies the first full-scale survey in 20 years of the work of Archibald John Motley, Jr. (1891-1981), a master colourist and radical interpreter of urban culture. Motley's brilliant yet idiosyncratic paintings - simultaneously expressionist and social realist - have captured worldwide attention with their rainbow-hued, syncopated compositions. The catalogue includes the artist's depictions of African American life in early-twentieth-century Chicago, as well as his portraits and archetypes, portrayals of African American life in Jazz Age Paris, and renderings of 1950s Mexico
