The De Stijl environment by Nancy J Troy( Book )
11 editions published between 1983 and 1986 in English and held by 808 libraries worldwide
"The Dutch magazine De Stijl, published from 1917 to 1931, was the focus of a remarkable group of advanced artists and architects who sought to combine their individual talents in collaborative projects that reflected their social and aesthetic ideals. The De Stijl Environment explores the group's approach to exterior and interior spaces and to furniture. It treats such themes as color, abstraction, and the corner, and describes the various collaborative efforts within the movement, in particular, the one that produced the De Stijl environment. Troy traces its evolution from an architecturally defined space to one determined by coloristic design. Among the painters discussed are Piet Mondrian, Theo van Doesburg, Vilmos Huszar, and Bart van der Liek; the architects include Gerrit Rietveld, Rob van't Hoff, Jan Wils, J.J.P Oud, and Cornelius van Eesteren."--Page 4 of cover

Couture culture : a study in modern art and fashion by Nancy J Troy( Book )
15 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 611 libraries worldwide
She shows how Poiret and other designers patronized the arts and presented themselves as artists not only to sell their individual dresses to wealthy clients but also to promote the mass production of their designs. The contradictions she uncovers suggest surprising parallels with the readymades and fashion-related work of Marcel Duchamp, who explored the questions of originality and authenticity raised by couture culture during the 1910s and 1920s." "In contrast to dominant accounts of early twentieth-century art that have dismissed fashion as superficial, fleeting, and feminized, Troy's more nuanced approach reveals conceptual structures and marketing strategies shared by modern art and fashion in these years."--Jacket

The afterlife of Piet Mondrian by Nancy J Troy( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 389 libraries worldwide
"Dutch painter Piet Mondrian died in New York City in 1944, but his work and legacy have been far from static since then. From market pressures to personal relationships and scholarly agendas, posthumous factors have repeatedly transformed our understanding of his oeuvre. InThe Afterlife of Piet Mondrian, Nancy J. Troy explores the controversial circumstances under which our conception of the artist's work has been shaped since his death, an account that describes money-driven interventions and personal and professional rivalries in forthright detail. Troy reveals how collectors, curators, scholars, dealers and the painter's heirs all played roles in fashioning Mondrian's legacy, each with a different reason for seeing the artist through a particular lens. She shows that our appreciation of his work is influenced by how it has been conserved, copied, displayed, and publicized, and she looks at the popular appeal of Mondrian's instantly recognizable style in fashion, graphic design, and a vast array of consumer commodities. Ultimately, Troy argues that we miss the evolving significance of Mondrian's work if we examine it without regard for the interplay of canonical art and popular culture. A fascinating investigation into Mondrian's afterlife, this book casts new light on how every artist's legacy is constructed as it circulates through the art world and becomes assimilated into the larger realm of visual experience." -- Publisher's description
Mondrian and neo-plasticism in America by Nancy J Troy( Book )
11 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 265 libraries worldwide
Mondrian and his studios : colour in space by Piet Mondrian( Book )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 139 libraries worldwide
"Mondrian had a pioneering role in the definition and conceptualisation of abstraction, but was also interested in the complex relationship between his artworks, the space around them and the belief that they were conceived to inspire. His studios in Amsterdam, Paris and New York reflect different stages of the painter's way of thinking and of his intentions. Each was designed to allow the artist to perform a clearly defined intellectual and social role. As well as focusing on his studios, this book also explores Mondrian's broader relationship with architecture and urbanism. Many of Mondrian's best-known Neo-Plastic works will be included in full colour, along with a plethora of images of the artist in his studio."

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Nancy Troy traceert in de tweede Hofstede de Groot-lezing de geschiedenis van het meubilair dat na het overlijden van Piet Mondriaan (1872-1944) achterbleef in zijn atelier te New York. De werktafel, het krukje en het keukentrapje zijn vanaf de jaren vijftig regelmatig geëxposeerd, waarbij ze vanaf de jaren zeventig als sculptuur werden gepresenteerd.0Waren deze meubelstukken voor Mondriaan echter wel onderdeel van zijn oeuvre? Of zijn er andere omstandigheden die ervoor zorgen dat deze stukken nu als sculptuur worden gezien? Nancy Troy schetst in haar lezing de geschiedenis van de opwaardering van deze functionele meubels tot kostbare kunstvoorwerpen
