Max Ernst : a retrospective by Max Ernst( Book )
13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 893 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: Max Ernst (1891-1976) was a pivotal figure in the history of twentieth-century art. A leader of the Dada movement in Germany, he later joined the circle of writers and artists gathered in Paris around Andre Breton, the unofficial founder of the Surrealist movement. At the outset of World War II, Ernst fled Germany for the United States, first going to New York and eventually settling in Sedona, Arizona. Ernst returned to Europe in 1950 and continued to explore Surrealist imagery and methods throughout his life. This important book accompanies the first retrospective exhibition of Ernst's work held in the United States in thirty years. It examines his pioneering accomplishments in painting, collage, and sculpture and considers his use of the techniques of frottage, grattage, and decalcomania. Also featured are Ernst's unique collage novels-narratives comprising disparate images culled from nineteenth-century engravings and combined in surreal, unsettling compositions. Leading scholars write on various aspects of Ernst's life and art: Werner Spies on Ernst in America; Ludger Derenthal on Ernst and politics; Pepe Karmel on Ernst and contemporary art; Thomas Gaehtgens on Ernst and the old masters; and Robert Storr on the collage novels

Balthus : cats and girls by Sabine Rewald( Book )
14 editions published in 2013 in 4 languages and held by 400 libraries worldwide
"Balthus's lifelong curiosity with the ambiguities and dark side of childhood resulted in his best-known and most iconic works. In these pictures, Balthus (1908-2001) mingles intuition into his young sitters' psyches with overt erotic desire and forbidding austerity, making them among the most powerful depictions of childhood and adolescence ever committed to canvas. Often included in these scenes are enigmatic cats, possible stand-ins for the artist himself. Balthus: Cats and Girls is the first book devoted to this subject, focusing on the early decades of the artist's career from the mid-1930s to the 1950s. Drawing on extensive knowledge of the artist's life and work, as well as on interviews with Balthus and the models themselves, Sabine Rewald explores the origins and permutations of Balthus's obsessions with adolescents and felines. She addresses the crucial influence of such key figures as poet Rainer Maria Rilke, his mother's lover, who acted as Balthus's surrogate father, but also includes the previously unknown voices of the girl models: their recollections and comments provide a unique perspective on some of the best known and most controversial paintings of the 20th century."--Publisher's description
Rooms with a view : the open window in the 19th century by Sabine Rewald( Book )
23 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 396 libraries worldwide
During the first half of the 19th century, the open window emerged as a consistent motif in German, Danish, French, and Russian painting and drawing. "Rooms with a View" is the first book to explore this intriguing theme in European art, with its Romantic intimations of unfulfilled longing and its associated qualities of poetry, luminosity, and interiority. Artists depicted this intangible mood with images of contemplative figures in hushed, sparsely furnished rooms; painters diligently at work in their studios; simple, serene displays of light entering a chamber; and windows as the focal point of views in their own right. "Rooms with a View" features forty oils and thirty works on paper by both well-known and largely undiscovered artists, including Caspar David Friedrich, Carl Gustav Carus, Georg Friedrich Kersting, Adolph Menzel, Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg, Martinus Rorbye, Jean Alaux, Leon Cogniet, and Fyodor Petrovich Tolstoy

The American Matisse : the dealer, his artists, his collection : the Pierre and Maria-Gaetana Matisse collection by N.Y.) Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York( Book )
12 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 259 libraries worldwide
"In a career spanning over six decades, the New York art dealer Pierre Matisse (1900-1989) contributed substantially to the advancement of modern art. At his eponymous gallery on East Fifty-seventh Street, he showed several now legendary artists for the first time outside Europe. The collection--paintings, sculpture, and drawings by Balthus, Bonnard, Chagall, Derain, Dubuffet, Giacometti, Magritte, and the dealer's own father, Henri Matisse, among others--was donated to The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2004 by the foundation established by his widow. These extraordinary artworks are presented with informative entries addressing the circumstances of each work's creation and the dealer's relationship to the artist. In the introduction, the story of Pierre Matisse's early struggles in New York is told for the first time and illustrated with previously unpublished archival photographs."--Provided by publisher
Balthus, time suspended : paintings and drawings 1932-1960 by Sabine Rewald( Book )
9 editions published in 2007 in English and German and held by 186 libraries worldwide
"Balthus's most important works were created between 1932 and 1960, when he lived in Paris and in Chateau de Chassy; a dilapidated manor in Burgundy. This period started with a scandal: the large-format pictures shown at his first solo exhibition in the Paris Galerie Pierre in 1934 have seemingly familiar motifs - young women standing at windows, receiving music instruction or grooming themselves. But they are charged with an aggressive eroticism that shocked the viewers - and were meant to do so. In the following decades Balthus painted portraits of contemporaries, street scenes and landscapes, and time and again his favorite motif: young girls on the threshold of puberty, that erotic state of uncertainty between childhood and womanhood. Many of these works undisputedly belong to the catalogue of twentieth-century masterpieces." "This volume appears on the occasion of the very first Balthus exhibition in Germany organized by the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, presenting 76 paintings and drawings from Balthus's most creative years."--Jacket

The Pierre and Maria-Gaetana Matisse Foundation's gift represents one of the largest additions to the Metropolitan's collection of modern art.

Works by Henri Matisse are the central feature of the collection, though paintings, sculpture, prints, and drawings by members of the School of Paris and others are also represented, including the works of Balthus, Butler, Carrington, Chagall, Delvaux, Derain, Dubuffet, Giacometti, Lam, MacIver, Magritte, Mason, Miró, and Tanguy. The selections illustrated in this publication are arranged in three sections: works done between 1911 and 1942; works by Henri Matisse; and paintings and sculpture after 1943. -- The Metropolitan Museum of Art website
