"Art and the 60s presents a comprehensive cultural history of the period, exploring a wide range of visual media, including fine art, architecture and photography, examining works in the context of such phenomena as Americanisation, the breakdown of the divide between 'high' and 'low' culture, pop music, the sexual revolution and the growth of the counter-culture." "Illustrated throughout and featuring contributions by leading writers on the period, Art and the 60s is both a history of the art of a generation and the portrait of an era."--BOOK JACKET
Barbara Hepworth centenary ( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Barbara Hepworth was one of the most significant sculptors of the twentieth century and one of the most successful women artists of her time." "Published to commemorate the centenary of her birth, this beautifully illustrated book accompanies exhibitions at Tate St. Ives and Yorkshire Sculpture Park, the first major showing of her work for nearly a decade." "Edited by Chris Stephens, Senior Curator at Tate Britain, the book includes a number of different perspectives on Hepworth's achievements: her deep interest in music, her feelings about landscape, the influence of relationships and motherhood, and the unflagging passion she had for her work. Contributions by Jeanette Winterson, Simon Armitage, David Lewis, Sophie Bowness, and Peter Murray give fresh insights into the work of this remarkable artist."--BOOK JACKET
Picasso & modern British art by Pablo Picasso ( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Accompanying a major touring exhibition, Picasso and Modern British Art is the first book to explore Pablo Picasso's lifelong connections with the United Kingdom. Picasso's enormous impact on British modernism is examined through seven artists in particular for whom he proved an important stimulus: Duncan Grant, Wyndham Lewis, Ben Nicholson, Henry Moore, Francis Bacon, Graham Sutherland and David Hockney. Their responses to Picasso's work are wide and varied: from Francis Bacon's extraordinary Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion (1944) that draws from Picasso's paintings of figures on the beach at Dinard, works that Bacon said first inspired him to take up painting, to David Hockney's pictorial 'homages' to Picasso after visiting the major Picasso retrospective exhibition at Tate eight times, the beginning of a life-long obsession with the artist. Such was Picasso's status that it extended beyond the artistic to the political sphere, with the tour of his anti-Fascist work Guernica at the end of the 1930s and his presence at the Sheffield Peace Conference in 1950 making headline news."--Publisher description

Ben Nicholson in England : a continuous line ( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ben Nicholson (1894-1982) was one of the most radical British artists of the twentieth century and the leader of the modern movement in Britain between the wars. Most famous for his abstract paintings and reliefs of the 1930s, Nicholson began as a figurative painter and had a deep and enduring relationship with the English landscape. Published to accompany a major touring exhibition, this book explores Nicholson's career from 1920 to when he left Britain to live in Switzerland in 1958. It concentrates on three periods and groups of work that have been neglected for many years: landscapes made in Cumberland and Cornwall in the late 1920S; landscapes, abstract paintings and reliefs made alongside each other in St. Ives during World War II; and the Cubist still-lifes made between 1945-58 that secured Nicholson's international reputation. Essays by leading critics and extensive illustrations cast both Nicholson and British art of the period in a new light."--BOOK JACKET

Trevor Bell by Chris Stephens ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This beautifully produced book presents the life and work of one of Britain's leading painters, and reflects the monumental scale and glorious color of his paintings. Trevor Bell's big, bold, beautiful paintings have been specially featured at Tate St Ives and he is a key figure in the development of painting in the last fifty years." "The book is illustrated with a lifetime's work on canvas and paper. Besides the landscapes closest to his heart - the Yorkshire moors in England, the steamy 'heatscape' of Florida and the wild Atlantic coast of Cornwall - Bell's sources have often sprung from his worldwide travels through India, the Himalayas, Burma, Mexico, Cuba and Peru."--BOOK JACKET
Peter Lanyon : at the edge of landscape by Chris Stephens ( Book )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Peter Lanyon was one of the most exciting and original landscape painters of the 20th Century. The only native-born Cornishman of the St Ives artists, Lanyon's representation of the land he grew up in was complex and passionate: for him it was part social history, part myth, part aesthetic. This book -- the first major assessment of Lanyon's work -- explores how the artist's words and paintings interrogate the very notion of how landscape is perceived and conceived. It tells of Lanyon's singular place within the 20th century's major art movements -- abstraction and the post-war British figurative tradition -- alongside his strong belief in employing landscape and place to explore questions of personal identity. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
