Deep storage : collecting, storing, and archiving in art by Ingrid Schaffner( Book )
16 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 452 libraries worldwide
"This publication documents the importance of collecting and packaging, storing, and archiving as a contemporary artistic strategy. It lends surprising insight into the process of creating art, which itself is a result of collecting experiences and materials, by using the work of forty internationally celebrated artists as examples." "In Deep Storage, these archives of materials become works of art themselves. The documentation and exhibition of these extreme departures from conventional forms of collection and recollection is a stunning project in the avant-garde tradition." "In accordance with its subject matter, this book is organized like a storage file of information, in which the broad spectrum of artistic contributions and essays and texts by twenty-five authors is presented alphabetically."

Salvador Dalí's Dream of Venus : the surrealist funhouse from the 1939 World's Fair by Ingrid Schaffner( Book )
7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 368 libraries worldwide
"Life magazine wrote that one funhouse at the 1939 New York World's Fair stood out among the others: Salvador Dali's Dream of Venus." "The building's modern expressionist exterior, with an entrance framed by a woman's legs, and shocking interior, including the bare-breasted "living liquid ladies" who swam inside the tanks, was a controversial sensation. The funhouse was so successful that it reopened for a second season after the fair closed. But once torn down it faded from memory, and its outlandishness became the stuff of urban myth. Now, more than sixty years later, a collection of Dream of Venus images by noted photographer Eric Schaal has been discovered and presented here in its depth and beauty. In stunning black-and-white and early Kodachrome, the photographs show both the construction and the completion of the funhouse - from Dali painting a melting clock to showgirls parading for their audience. Salvador Dali's Dream of Venus reveals not only a mind-boggling work of architecture, but also a unique creation by one of the most fertile imaginations of the twentieth century."--Jacket
Julien Levy : portrait of an art gallery ( Book )
9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 339 libraries worldwide
Julien Levy (1906-1981) was one of the most influential art dealers of the twentieth century. His gallery, the Julien Levy gallery which opened in Manhattan in 1931 and closed in 1949, played an essential role in the shift of the cultural avant-garde from Paris to New York. This book accompanies an exhibition on the Julien Levy gallery and offers accounts of Levy and his gallery from several perspectives. Amongst others attention is given to Levy's enterprise as it evolved from combination curiosity shop, curated exhibition space, and crucible of fashion

The essential Andy Warhol by Ingrid Schaffner( Book )
6 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and French and held by 212 libraries worldwide
"The Prince of Pop, Andy Warhol created the most sensational art of the 1960s. He took snapshots of Marilyn Monroe, Coca Cola bottles, and dollar bills, and transformed them into radical works of art through the simple act of reproduction, silkscreening his paintings by the yard! Yet despite his fame, Warhol remains an enigmatic figure: Was he a glamorous decadent, exploiting the sex and drug subcultures? Or was he the most brilliant social commentator of his day? Book jacket."--Jacket

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 173 libraries worldwide
Joseph Cornell, the American assemblage artist, was a quirky (but passionate) collector of bric-a-brac who used trinkets, scraps of paper, paint, and lots of glue to arrange imaginative worlds inside of glass-fronted wooden boxes and frames. Did you know that: Cornell's infatuation with movie stars inspired some of his most famous works, which he created as tributes to the women he adored from afar: Lauren Bacall, Greta Garbo, and Marilyn Monroe; Cornell's genius lay in his transformation of everyday objects into enchanting realms; Cornell's loyalty to family led to his lifetime support of his mother and invalid brother, with whom he shared a modest house on Utopia Parkway in Queens, New York. 72 illustrations, including 47 plates in full color
