Most widely held works by J. Paul Getty Museum
The great empires of the ancient world ( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 951 libraries worldwide
A team of internationally renowned scholars surveys the major imperial powers of the ancient world, from 1600 B.C. to A.D. 500, and ranging geographically from the ancient Mediterranean to East Asia. The authors investigate the nature of empires--including Egypt, Rome, Babylonia, Persia, India, and China--and their legacies in the modern age. Highlights include fascinating character profiles of great rulers such as the warrior pharaohs Thutmose and Rameses of Egypt, the self-obsessed First Emperor of China, who desperately tried to cheat death, and the brilliant Roman emperor Augustus, who created the most powerful empire the world had ever seen. "Witness to Empire" spreads bring these civilizations to life in the words of their leaders and inhabitants. Not only will this book appeal to scholars and students, but its accessible text and wealth of illustrations also will feed the popular interest in this subject matter reflected in the recent success of films, television series, and museum exhibitions showcasing ancient cultures
A history of old age by Pat Thane( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 877 libraries worldwide
"Here six authors examine how the best thinkers and artists of each historical epoch in the West have treated old age. They examine, too, the myths that have grown up around it - especially in our own time, when we firmly believe that never have people grown so old as they now do! - and the images, both visual and verbal, that have been created to encapsulate that thing which we shall all become. Opulently and ingeniously illustrated with reproductions drawn from an astonishingly wide range of eras and media, A History of Old Age provides a welcome and refreshing look at what the subject has meant to the Greeks and the Romans, the medievals, the Romantics, and the modern men and women of rootless urban societies."--Jacket

Engaged observers : documentary photography since the sixties by Brett Abbott( Book )
7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 838 libraries worldwide
Overview: In the decades following World War II, an independently minded, critically engaged form of photojournalism began to flourish. It was not destined for the morning papers or exclusively for newsmagazines, and it did not attempt to be neutral. This kind of photojournalism was self-assigned. It declared its independence from the mainstream media's editorial control, and it was disseminated to the public through books, exhibitions, articles, and, more recently, the Web. Engaged Observers focuses on nine photographers who have participated in the development of this documentary approach. Surveyed are Leonard Freed (Black in White America), Philip Jones Griffiths (Vietnam Inc.), W. Eugene Smith (Minamata), Susan Meiselas (Nicaragua: June 1978-July 1979), Mary Ellen Mark (Streetwise), Larry Towell (The Mennonites), Sebastiao Salgado (Migrations), Lauren Greenfield (Girl Culture), and James Nachtwey ("The Sacrifice"). Each section opens with an introductory essay that sets the work in its evolving historical context
The brilliant history of color in art by Victoria Finlay( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 807 libraries worldwide
Journey from the Ice Age to the Digital Age with a surprising cast of characters on this worldwide tour of color in art. Discover the strange, intriguing, and humorous stories of your favorite colors, the science behind them, and how they forever changed the courses of art and history. Were it not for Cleopatra, for instance, purple might not have become the royal color of the Western world. Without Napoleon, the black graphite pencil might never have found its way into the hands of Cézanne. Without mango-eating cows, the sunsets of Turner might have lost their shimmering glow. And were it not for the pigment cobalt blue, the halls of museums worldwide might still be filled with forged Vermeers. The Brilliant History of Color in Art is also a treasure trove of world art, from cave paintings to Roman treasures and Chinese dragon scrolls; to works by Titian and Michelangelo, Monet and Kandinsky, Rothko and Hockney; to contemporary sculpture and graffiti art. Many of the book's 166 spectacular images are from the collections of the J. Paul Getty Museum
Leonardo da Vinci and the art of sculpture by Gary M Radke( Book )
10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 794 libraries worldwide
"Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) is renowned as a painter, designer, draftsman, architect, engineer, scientist, and theorist. His work as a sculptor is not commonly acknowledged, and many have argued that Leonardo believed that sculpture was an inferior art form ("of lesser genius than painting"). Challenging and overturning these assumptions, Leonardo da Vinci and the Art of Sculpture looks at the sculptural projects that the artist undertook, as well as the late Renaissance sculptures that were indebted to him. Leonardo consistently drew inspiration from ancient sculpture, admired the work of such contemporary sculptural innovators as Donatello, and even trained under Andrea del Verrocchio, the preeminent bronze sculptor of late 15th-century Florence. Furthermore, Leonardo spent many years of his life working on two larger-than-life-sized horse sculptures - Sforza and Trivulzio - monuments to Francesco Sforza, the Duke of Milan, and to Gian Giacomo Trivulzio, his successor. Although neither was completed, the authors argue that these equestrian monuments show how Leonardo was intensely engaged with the design dilemmas of representing a horse rearing on its hind legs. Another highlight of the book is a group of new images of the John the Baptist Preaching to a Levite and a Pharisee, a recently restored large-scale work in the Florentine Baptistery that clearly demonstrates Leonardo's collaboration with Giovanni Francesco Rustici."--Jacket

Walker Evans : signs by Walker Evans( Book )
3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 660 libraries worldwide
"Walker Evans: Signs traces one particular theme - signs of all kinds - through the long career of this master photographer. The book brings together images from the era and place most closely associated with Evans, namely, the rural South of the 1930s. But also included are photographs that will be less familiar to many of Evans's admirers, such as his images of New York City street scenes and advertising or the photographs he took in Chicago and Havana."--BOOK JACKET. "Andrei Codrescu's essay brings a fresh perspective to this great photographer's passionate investigation of the signs he discovered in the urban North, the rural South, and beyond."--Jacket

Photographers of genius at the Getty by Weston J Naef( Book )
9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 652 libraries worldwide
"Celebrating twenty years of collecting photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Photographers of Genius at the Getty and the exhibition it accompanies spotlight the genius of thirty-eight influential photographers whose work is held in depth by the Museum. From Hyppolyte Bayard to Diane Arbus, the innovative pioneers presented here span more than a century of photography from the early years of the new art in the 1840s to the early 1960s. Each advanced the art of photography and, in the process, brought about a change in the history of art, as well." "Many well-known names are included here, such as Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Eugene Atget, Brassai, Julia Margaret Cameron, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Andre Kertesz, Dorothea Lange, Gustave Le Gray, Man Ray, August Sander, Alfred Stieglitz, and Edward Weston. Others will be new even to experts: early innovators Anna Atkins, Henry Bosse, Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey, the Langenheim brothers, and Camille Silvy have been rediscovered in recent years, bringing to light the importance of their particular contributions to the history of art and photography. Each artist is represented by three related images and interpretive remarks by the author."--Jacket

Devices of wonder : from the world in a box to images on a screen by Barbara Maria Stafford( Book )
14 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 631 libraries worldwide
"Modern media machines are the latest addition to a long line of captivating instruments for the augmentation of perception. In Devices of Wonder, Barbara Stafford weaves an array of such sense-extending inventions into a provocative analysis of the social and cultural intersections between old and new technologies. Complementing her wide-ranging investigation are Frances Terpak's thirty-one short essays tracking the complex and often surprising links among individual items. An unusual catalog for an unusual exhibition, Devices of Wonder reframes the history of the beautiful "eye machines" humans have created out of our desire to see more, better, farther, and in a different way."--Jacket

California video : artists and histories ( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 624 libraries worldwide
Since the late 1960s, California artists have been at the forefront of an international movement that has made video a central new medium in contemporary art. This illustrated volume--the first comprehensive survey of California video art--focuses on fifty-eight dynamic, provocative artists and collaboratives who have embraced video technology and expanded its possibilities. Whether designing complex sculptures and installations, devising lush projections, experimenting with electronic psychedelia, generating guerrilla video, or producing vanguard works that engage with feminism and other social issues, artists from Northern and Southern California have used video to express revolutionary ideas. Through dozens of interviews with pioneers and luminaries such as John Baldessari, Chris Burden, Mike Kelley, Martha Rosler, Diana Thater, Bill Viola, and William Wegman, California Video sheds new light on well-known artists and brings long-overdue recognition to others. The volume's commissioned essays, rare reprints, unpublished video transcripts, and hundreds of photographs reveal a distinctly West Coast aesthetic within the broader history of video art

Rubens & Brueghel : a working friendship by Anne T Woollett( Book )
12 editions published in 2006 in English and Dutch and held by 586 libraries worldwide
"Rubens and Brueghel: A Working Friendship is the first international loan exhibition devoted to the artists' collaborative works and an investigation of their working methods. Assembled here are some of the most important works of Brueghel and Rubens's partnership - from the early war themes, to mythological landscapes and allegories, to iconic paintings of the Madonna and Child surrounded by garlands of fruit and flowers - as well as a select group of works executed with other collaborators, including Hans Rottenhammer, Hendrick de Clerck, Hendrick van Balen, and Frans Snyders. Together, these paintings reveal the nature of collaboration as practiced in the Netherlands in this period. What also emerges is the unique character of Brueghel and Rubens's conceptual alliance - a rare partnership of equals, a complex and reciprocal relationship, that gave rise to works of unparalleled delight."--Jacket
