The widening circle : consequences of modernism in contemporary art by Barry Schwabsky( Book )
11 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 424 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

Dana Schutz by Dana Schutz( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 268 libraries worldwide
"New York-based Dana Schutz is widely considered one of the most talented painters of her generation. American art critic Jerry Saltz has praised Schutz for her "daredevil style and anarchic freedom." Viewed by both critics and her peers as the ultimate painter’s painter, her canvases are filled with a lush, boldly painted cast of characters that share the bravado and oddness of Paul Gauguin, Philip Guston, and the German Expressionists. These figures populate the artist’s distinctive post-apocalyptic narratives, which are at once playful and comic and dark and foreboding. Respected art writer and critic Barry Schwabsky considers the work of this young but prolific artist’s career in its entirety, delving deep into the rich themes that make Dana Schutz one of the most important artists of her generation."--Publisher description

Vitamin P : new perspectives in painting : Tomma Abts, Franz Ackermann, Nader Ahriman [and others] by Barry Schwabsky( Book )
26 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 146 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
Ricas y famosas by Daniela Rossell( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in Spanish and held by 130 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

Nicolas Krushenick : electric soup by Nicholas Krushenick( Book )
3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 87 libraries worldwide
Juxtaposing broad black lines with bold, flat Liquitex colors, Krushenick created hard-edged abstractions that fill his canvases from corner to corner. His energetic forms used experiments in cut paper collage as a springboard, creating an aesthetic all his own that earned him the title 'father of Pop abstraction.' This book offers a mix of archival writings and interviews with new perspectives on the artist who is largely considered a precursor to Pop Art. Preparatory drawings, early collages, and scenes of Krushenick in his studio offer insight into the artist's creative process, while newly commissioned essays take a fresh look at a remarkable oeuvre
