Dada & surrealism by Matthew Gale ( Book )
14 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author "explores the work of a wide range of artists - from Marcel Duchamp and Raoul Hausmann to Max Ernst, René Magritte and Salvador Dalí - and uses paintings, collages, sculptures, assemblages, photographs, photomontages, film stills and graphics to illustrate the rich variety of Dada and Surrealist art."--Back cover
Joan Miró : the ladder of escape by Joan Miró ( Book )
16 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Miró's contemporary Picasso left Spain, promising never to return under a Fascist government. In contrast, Miró chose internal exile, removing himself to the island of Mallorca, a decision that has led to him being viewed as a less politically committed artist. This book challenges that impression by focusing on Miró's politically engaged works, from the rural, anarchist tradition and strong Catalan nationalism reflected in early paintings "The Farm" and "Head of Catalan peasant", through to the triptych "The hope of a condemned man", painted in 1974, by which he publicly declared his opposition to Franco. Exhibitions: Tate Modern, London 14 April - 11 September 2011; Fundació Miró, Barcelona 13 October 2011 - 25 march 2012; National Gallery of Art, Washington 6 May - 12 August 2012

"In eight essays the authors explore the importance of the Ariadne series in the context of the Paris art world before World War I and in later developments in de Chirico's career. An unpublished text by Max Ernst and an interview with Gerard Tempest, who was tutored by de Chirico in the late 1940s, shed new light on the artist and his working methods. Illustrated with some 180 paintings, drawings, sculptures, and documentary photographs, this book provides an unparalleled range of primary research materials and the best overall account of de Chirico's career."--BOOK JACKET

Paul Klee : making visible by Paul Klee ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Swiss-born artist Paul Klee (1879-1940) created some of the most innovative and best-loved works of the twentieth century. He combined the machine aesthetic of modernism with lyrical, organic elements, arriving at a visual language entirely his own. Although he moved freely between media and from figuration to abstraction, Klee's works remain instantly recognisable, often characterised by a playfulness and wit that can sharpen to biting satire on occasion. This book surveys Klee's entire career, particularly his role as recordkeeper of his work and the way this influenced the way his work was then exhibited. Featuring his best-known paintings reproduced in their full colourful complexity, the book focuses on Klee's major exhibitions during his lifetime. placing his output in the context of the period in which he lived, revealing an anxious artist who, despite his quirky lyricism, was troubled by the challenges of the modern world
