Ruth Duckworth : Modernist sculptor by Jo Lauria( Book )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 276 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."--Jacket

Archibald Motley : jazz age modernist by Archibald John Motley( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 261 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--
Procession : the art of Norman Lewis by Norman Lewis( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Procession: The Art of Norman Lewis (1909-1979), is the first comprehensive museum overview of this influential artist, who explored multiple styles and whose extraordinary work spanned several decades of the 20th century. Norman Lewis was a pivotal figure in American art, a participant in the Harlem art community, an innovative contributor to Abstract Expressionism, and a politically-conscious activist. Bringing together works from major international public and private collections, the exhibition is organized with the full support of Lewis' family. It includes approximately 90 paintings and works on paper dating from the early 1930s through the late 1970s, as well as archival materials from the artist's estate. The exhibition highlights the diverse visual apparatus Lewis explored in parallel groups of works over the course of his career.The "procession" in the exhibition's title evokes Lewis' intriguing painterly process and highlights a prominent thread that runs through his oeuvre: the procession ritual. Processions were both celebratory and terrifying for Lewis, equally carrying allusions to carnevale and Ku Klux Klan marches. Such duality was at the heart of his artistic practice, which consistently employed modes of representation and abstraction; geometric and organic form; and emotional content ranging from joy to rage.Procession considers the complexity of Lewis' art in its entirety: It examines the role of figuration within Abstract Expressionism, considers how Lewis integrated social issues with abstraction, and highlights the surprising and expressive palette the artist championed throughout his career. -- Text from PAFA's website (see link)
Material difference : soft sculpture and wall works by Polly Ullrich( Book )

"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."--Jacket
