"Artists continued to discover and explore the artistic and practical applications of photography at the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth centuries.

Angels, demons and savages : Pollock, Ossorio, Dubuffet by Klaus Ottmann( Book )
9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 383 libraries worldwide
"The artistic relationships among Jackson Pollock (1912-1956), Alfonso Ossorio (1916-1990), and Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985) strongly influenced the development of postwar art. Ossorio, the central figure in the trio, was an early champion of Pollock and the close friend of Dubuffet, whose radically anticultural Art Brut collection was prominently displayed at Ossorio's Hamptons estate. Dubuffet's admiration for Ossorio is evident in his 1951 essay on the artist, published here for the first time in English. Angels, Demons, and Savages reveals previously unrecognized technical and thematic affinities in the artists' work, from Dubuffet's "raw," unconventional style to Ossorio's use of Christian iconography and grotesque elements to Pollock's emphasis on medium and gestural force. Complete with two original essays and a conservation study, this groundbreaking catalogue shows how the three artists shaped the aesthetic on both sides of the Atlantic through their exchange of ideas and techniques."--Publisher's website
Van Gogh's sheaves of wheat by Dorothy M Kosinski( Book )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 379 libraries worldwide
"Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) viewed wheat as a central metaphor of the cycle of life and the creative process. As such, it was a theme that he consistently explored throughout his career. This book examines the artist's personal and visual fascination with wheat, analyzing the significance that the motif - and by extension, the peasant at work in nature - played within the social and cultural framework of 19th-century France and in the works of other artists of the time." "Focusing on his powerful Sheaves of Wheat from the Wendy and Emery Reves Collection at the Dallas Museum of Art - one of thirteen canvases completed in the last month of his life - this book features illustrations of Van Gogh's works as well as personal correspondence and letters. Related images by such prominent contemporary artists as Emile Bernard, Jules Breton, Charles-Francois Daubigny, Paul Gauguin, Jean-Francois Millet, Claude Monet, and Camille Pissarro are also included. Together these works reveal the larger social and political trends of 19th-century France."--Jacket

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 145 libraries worldwide
This is a unique chance to see works from two remarkable private Swiss collections. It pays tribute to two pioneering supporters of modernism, Rudolf Staechelin (1881-1946) and Karl Im Obersteg (1883-1969), industrialists and businessmen, close friends, and enthusiastic champions of impressionist, post-impressionist, and school of Paris artists."Gauguin to Picasso," "Masterworks from Switzerland "features over sixty celebrated paintings from their collections, created during the mid-nineteenth and early twentieth century by twenty-two world-famous artists. Masterpieces include Paul Gauguin's "Nafea faa ipoipo "("When will you Marry?") (1892), the most expensive work of art ever sold, Vincent van Gogh's "Daubigny's Garden "(1890), Pablo Picasso's double-sided canvas "Femme dans la loge / Buveuse d'absinthe "(1901), and Marc Chagall's three monumental Rabbi portraits. There are extraordinary paintings by artists of international stature including Swiss master Ferdinand Hodler, Russian expressionist painter Alexej Jawlensky, works by Edouard Manet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cezanne, Claude Monet, Amedeo Modigliani, Georges Rouault, and Wassily Kandinsky. The volume also studies how Staechlin and Im Obersteg developed friendships with and influenced the work of artists, and how they came to create two of the most significant collections of modern art in Europe
From Manet to Gauguin : masterpieces from Swiss private collections by Dorothy M Kosinski( Book )
7 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 83 libraries worldwide
Markus Lüpertz : Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, The Phillips Collection, Washington, DC, 2017 ( Book )
1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 78 libraries worldwide
The Hirshhorn celebrated the pioneering early works of Markus Lüpertz (b. Liberec, Czech Republic, 1941), one of the most influential contemporary German artists, with an in-depth exploration of his groundbreaking paintings from the 1960s and 1970s. Lüpertz is internationally recognized as one of the German artists who initiated a return to figurative painting during the late 1970s and 1980s. The exhibition: Markus Lüpertz: Threads of History focuses on the early years of the artist's mature practice, reflecting his unique reconsideration of painting through the lenses of Abstract Expressionism, Pop art, and, more broadly, German postwar culture. Lüpertz, like many artists who came of age in the shadow of World War II, grappled with how he should engage with this recent past and, in particular, what he should paint. The artworks from this seminal period reveal how Lüpertz deftly challenged the limits of painting as he struggled to reconcile the weight of history with his desire to be what he has described as "a painter without responsibilities."

Markus Lüpertz by Markus Lüpertz( Book )
2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 19 libraries worldwide
In den mehr als 60 Jahren seines Schaffens hat Markus Lüpertz durch die suggestive Kraft und archaische Monumentalität seiner Malweise international höchste Anerkennung gefunden. Heute zählt der Malerfürst zu den herausragenden deutschen Künstlern der Gegenwart. In den Sechzigerjahren setzt er sich bereits als junger Maler den Tendenzen des Abstrakten Expressionismus und der Pop Art mit einfachen gegenständlichen Motiven entgegen. In dieser Zeit erfindet er die 'dithyrambische Malerei', bei der gegenständliche Inhalte in expressiver Manier miteinander verschmolzen werden. Neben dieser intensiven Auseinandersetzung mit dem Spannungsgefüge von Figuration und Abstraktion spielt auch die deutsche Geschichte eine zentrale Rolle in Lüpertz? frühem Werk. Mit symbolträchtigen 'deutschen Motiven' wie etwa Stahlhelme findet er zu einer ganz eigenen Ikonografie. Es folgen Phasen der 'Stil-Malerei', die sich von dinghaften Inhalten befreit, der 'mythologischen Malerei' und der 'Landschaftsmalerei'. Anlässlich der ersten umfassenden Werkschau zu Markus Lüpertz in den USA entstand ein reich bebilderter Band, der einen weiten Bogen von den visionären Anfängen bis zu den jüngsten Arbeiten dieses einzigartigen Künstlers spannt
