Vitamin P₂ : new perspectives in painting ( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 719 libraries worldwide
The first volume of Vitamin P, published in 2002, inaugurated a vibrant period for painting. Since its publication, a whole new generation of painters has emerged, some inspired by the artists who appeared in that book, others taking cues from new sources. Vitamin P2: New Perspectives in Painting introduces this new wave of painters to the world. The vast medium of painting continues to be a central pillar of artistic practice, and Vitamin P2 presents the outstanding artists who are currently engaging with and pushing the boundaries of the medium. Over 80 international critics, artists and curators have nominated the 115 artists who have made a fresh, unique or innovative contribution to recent painting. All of the artists in Vitamin P2 have recently emerged onto the international scene, and none appeared in the first Vitamin P. An introduction by Barry Schwabsky, who also wrote the introduction for Vitamin P, provides a broad overview of recent developments in the medium while also looking towards its future.--Publisher description

The widening circle : consequences of modernism in contemporary art by Barry Schwabsky( Book )
8 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 421 libraries worldwide
In this collection of critical essays, Barry Schwabsky reexamines the art produced since the 1960s, demonstrating how the achievements of "high modernism" remain consequential to it, through tensions between representation, abstraction, and language. Offering close readings of works produced by several generations of European and American artists, he begins with an analysis of the late period of two Abstract Expressionists, Philip Guston and Mark Rothko, who saw their own success as a failure of reception and who came to question radically their own work. With the core of the book focused on Michelangelo Pistoletto and Mel Bochner, major figures of Arte Povera and Conceptual Art whose works in a variety of media demonstrate a deepening critical engagement with modernism, Schwabsky also studies the work of emerging artists, such as L.C. Amrstrong and Rainer Ganahl, who continue to examine modernism's legacies

Ricas y famosas by Daniela Rossell( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in Spanish and held by 131 libraries worldwide
"Barry Schwabsky's brief afterword succinctly states the aims of Daniela Rossella in her startling book Ricas y famosas (Rich and Famous): 'She focuses her ethnographic gaze not on the daily lives of the humble and their immemorial customs and traditions, but rather on her own class, the oligarchs whose economic and political power keeps the humble in place.' ... Unless one knows the world, and it is clearly a private one to which Rossell had privileged access, one cannot tell whether these supreme examples of the excessively rich are any more representative of their class than a billionaire with a penchant for several Minimalisms, but Rossell gives us what we hope and expect. ... If a photobook could start a proletarian revolution this might be it, and it has proved somewhat controversial in Mexico."--The Photobook : A History Volume II / Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. London : Phaidon, 2004

Alex Katz : portraits by Alex Katz( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 82 libraries worldwide
Alex Katz (b.1927) is one of the most prominent artists of his generation. Often described as a 'painter's painter', his influence is widely felt with many of today's most successful painters from Peter Doig to Elizabeth Peyton acknowledging their debt to his work. Setting his work in the context of the National Portrait Gallery, London creates a new opportunity to consider Katz's work alongside other portrait painters of the 20th and 21st centuries. Katz's distinctive portraits are informed by his interest in billboards and his familiarity with the process of physical enlargement. His minimal aesthetic, with pristine flat surfaces and economy of line, was developed in the 1950s and was at the time both an anticipation of Pop Art and a reaction to the prevalence of Abstract Expressionism, though he chose to work independently of both movements
Vitamin P : new perspectives in painting : Tomma Abts, Franz Ackermann, Nader Ahriman ... ( Book )
14 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 80 libraries worldwide
In the wake of new media such as installation, video, performance and digital art, the traditional medium of painting has enjoyed a renaissance among a recent generation of artists. Alongside the ever-growing reputation of significant living painters such as Gerhard Richter, Agnes Martin and Peter Halley, many younger artists have chosen painting over any other medium, and are exploring new means to broaden the traditional field of oil on canvas . It is this younger generation (who emerged in the 1990s) that Vitamin P aims to represent in an A-Z survey of 114 of its leading, new, international practitioners, with each artist illustrated by numerous examples of his or her works, accompanied by a short explanatory text."--pub. desc
