Basquiat by Jean-Michel Basquiat( Book )
20 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and French and held by 1,046 libraries worldwide
"Born in Brooklyn in 1960, Jean-Michel Basquiat lived to the age of only twenty-seven. His meteoric career as an artist had lasted no more than eight years. The one-time teenage runaway and high-school dropout was first included in a group exhibition in 1980, and almost immediately knew considerable success, enjoying his first solo exhibition just two years later. Basquiat quickly became a notable figure on the international art scene, mixing with dealers and artists. Among these was Andy Warhol, with whom he established a close working relationship." "Borrowing from graffiti and street imagery, cartoons, mythology and religious symbolism, Basquiat's drawings and paintings explore issues of race and identity, providing social commentary that is both shrewdly observed and biting. Characterized by their intensely personal nature and the raw, almost aggressive handling of paint, these works have an enduring power to move and to confound." "Viewing the heady world of the 1980s art scene from the beginning of a new century, we are able to look at Basquiat's achievements with increasing objectivity. Rather than explore his persona, this book aims to demonstrate the lasting quality of Basquiat's work itself, as well as its uniqueness within modern art. It strives not only to reevaluate his principal works, but also to explain Basquiat's continuing interest as a major painter."--Jacket
America & Lewis Hine : photographs 1904-1940 : [exhibition] by Lewis Wickes Hine( Book )
4 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 985 libraries worldwide
How bitterly ironic that this artist and social reformer, after devoting his life to working people, should end up as so many of his subjects did-- on a welfare line. Decades earlier, he had written: "For many years I have followed the procession of child workers winding through a thousand industrial communities from the canneries of Maine to the fields of Texas. I have heard their tragic stories, watched their cramped lives, and seen their fruitless struggles in the industrial game where the odds are all against them."Like Walt Whitman before him, Lewis Hine viewed his work and art as grounded in the fluid movements of everyday lives, of history, the present and the future, expressing with vividness and responsiveness the hope for America revived in a sense of great community, and democracy as a life of free and enriching communion

French nineteenth-century drawings and watercolors at the Brooklyn Museum by Brooklyn Museum( Book )
3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
"In 1900 the more than five hundred gouaches and ink drawings made by James Jacques Joseph Tissot for his Life of Christ were purchased by public subscription by The Brooklyn Museum, and in 1992 a sketchbook by Tissot, related to this series, was also purchased for the collection. Over the intervening years nearly one hundred other works on paper by nineteenth-century French artists entered the collection. Many of them are by artists now considered to be the major masters of their time; but there are also works by other artists, both academic and avant-garde, less familiar to the American public today, who deserve recognition. This collection - which spans a century of creativity and a subsequent century of collecting, thus preserving a portion of our cultural and artistic heritage - is one of the significant holdings of works on paper at this great museum." "This volume is part of an ongoing series devoted to the Museum's outstanding and encyclopedic collection of works on paper. It presents ninety-three drawings, watercolors, and pastels by some fifty artists, ranging from Fragonard through Corot, Millet, Daumier, and Rodin; the Impressionists Degas, Manet, Morisot, and Pissarro; the Post-Impressionists Cezanne, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec, and van Gogh; and the modernist pioneers Picasso and Gris." "Through an examination of these works and the fascinating texts that accompany them, we can gain an understanding not only of the aesthetic attitudes of each artist and his society, but also of the history, politics, and social mores of the time and place in which each work was created. These works on paper, thanks to their intimacy and directness not found in the more formal media of oil painting and sculpture, help us to understand better the art and the artist's thoughts at the moment of creation."--Jacket

Tipi : heritage of the Great Plains by Brooklyn Museum( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
"The tipi is an iconic symbol of Native North American culture, recognized throughout the world. Tipi: Heritage of the Great Plains reveals the history and significance of this remarkable architectural form from the 1830s to the present. Ideally suited to a nomadic lifestyle on the Plains, the tipi was the heart of Plains social, religious, and creative traditions. Trade and innovation brought new materials and ways of living to Plains people. As the nomadic way of life gave way to more permanent settlements, the tipi evolved in form but remained central to Plains culture and identity. The book examines the history and continuing tradition of the tipi by focusing on tribes from three geographical regions: the Blackfeet, Crow, Shoshone, and Northern Cheyenne in the north; the Arapaho and many Sioux groups, including Dakota, Yankton, Yanktonai, Lakota, Húnkpapa, and Oglala, in the Central Plains; and the Pawnee, Osage, Kiowa, Southern Cheyenne, Comanche, and Plains Apache in the south. Included are first-person narratives by Native people-elders, artists, military veterans, and an architect-that tell of the lasting cultural significance of the tipi within an ongoing process of cultural and artistic interpretation. The volume is richly illustrated with historic and contemporary photographs and artwork. Art made by women, who were the tipi makers and owners, include furnishings, clothing, and accessories. Associated with tipi-centered family life, these objects feature intricate beadwork, quill embroidery, and painting. Other artwork relate to the male warrior tradition: tipi liners, traditionally painted by men with their war exploits, as well as other objects associated with warfare and warrior societies. Children's life in the tipi is illustrated by cradles, garments, toys, and games. Works by contemporary Native artists represent modern interpretations of traditional forms. Dispelling stereotypes of the tipi as a picturesque vestige of the past, Tipi: Heritage of the Great Plains demonstrates how the tipi remains a part of a living culture deeply rooted in tradition."--Publisher description
