Alberto Giacometti by Christian Klemm ( Book )
8 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Today, one hundred years after his birth and a generation after his death, Alberto Giacometti is recognized as one of the small group of modern masters who dominated art during much of the twentieth century. This centennial volume both celebrates his achievement and reexamines his work, and thus contributes to a more focused concentration on the art itself" "The importance of reassessing Giacometti's work resides not only in each new generation finding a somewhat different artist than its forebears, but also in that each fresh look tends to impede the spread of myths and generalizations that shield us from the complexities of a great artist's oeuvre. This publication is meant to extend popular and critical understanding of Giacometti's achievement and to return the reader to the center of Giacometti's work, where new insights can only be revealed by the objects themselves."--BOOK JACKET
Making choices : 1929, 1939, 1948, 1955 by Peter Galassi ( Book )
10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The book is published to accompany the second of three cycles of exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art. The first cycle, ModernStarts, explored the period from 1880 to 1920; Making Choices considers the years between 1920 and 1960; the third cycle, Open Ends, will concentrate on art since 1960." "More than 300 works are reproduced in Making Choices, representing all of the Museum's curatorial departments: architecture and design, drawings, film and video, painting and sculpture, photography, and prints and illustrated books. By selecting four years from a span of four decades, the authors were able for each year to delve deeply into the Museum's rich collection, assembling many fascinating but unfamiliar works along with justly famous masterpieces. The resulting groupings and juxtapositions reflect the simultaneous convergence and divergence of a wide range of creative endeavors at any one moment. For example: Christina's World, an outstanding example of Andrew Wyeth's realist dissent from modernist innovation, and Number 1, 1948, Jackson Pollock's landmark experiment in abstraction, were both painted in 1948. In this lively book, they face each other on opposite pages, challenging the reader to grapple with the vital multiplicity of modern art."--BOOK JACKET
Joan Miró : painting and anti-painting 1927-1937 by Anne Umland ( Book )
9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Taking Joan Miro's notorious declaration of 1927--"I want to assassinate painting"--as its point of departure, this richly illustrated volume is the first to focus on Miro the "anti-painter," identifying the core practices and strategies the artist used to challenge painting between 1927 and 1937. Joan Miro: Painting and Anti-Painting 1927-1937 surveys the various material, iconographical and rhetorical forms of Miro's attacks on painting by presenting, in chronological sequence, 12 distinct series of works, beginning with a remarkable group of paintings on unprimed canvas and concluding with Miro's return to Realism in "Still Life with Old Shoe" (1937)

Magritte : the mystery of the ordinary, 1926-1938 by René Magritte ( Book )
10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Mystery of the Ordinary, 1926-1938 focuses on the breakthrough surrealist years of René Magritte, creator of some of the 20th century's most extraordinary images. Bringing together nearly 80 paintings, periodicals and early commercial work, it offers fresh insight into Magritte's identity as a revolutionary painter and surrealist artist. Beginning in 1926, when Magritte first aimed to create paintings that would, in his words, challenge the real world, and concluding in 1938 a historically and biographically significant moment just before the outbreak of World War II. The publication traces central strategies and themes from this seminal period, particularly those of displacement, transformation, metamorphosis, the misnaming of objects, and the representation of visions seen in half-waking states. The publication also presents new conservation research on Magritte's materials and techniques, and an illustrated chronology outlining significant moments in the artist's life during this significant period, including travel, connections with other surrealist artists and writers, contributions to journals, and important exhibitions and reviews
