Cubism by David Cottington( Book )
30 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in 8 languages and held by 957 libraries worldwide
"Cubism, perhaps the seminal movement for the arts of the twentieth century, was also one of the most complex. Divided between the annual public exhibition and the emerging network of private galleries, between French and immigrant artists, it was also the product of the decade before the outbreak of war in 1914. Behind the cliched image of 'la belle epoque, ' France was torn by inter-class and international tensions, caught between excitement over the experience of modernity and anxiety about its consequences." "David Cottington describes how the artistic avant-garde, and Cubism within it, were formed by that turbulent and complex moment. Analysing paintings by Picasso, Braque, Robert and Sonia Delaunay and their associates, he traces their exploration of the conventions of pictorial representation in the interests both of reflection of the experience of modernity, and of critical resistance to its seductions."--Jacket
Cubism in the shadow of war : the avant-garde and politics in Paris 1905-1914 by David Cottington( Book )
12 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 714 libraries worldwide
This groundbreaking book provides a major reassessment of the history and significance of cubism. David Cottington examines the cubist movement and sets it within the complex political, economic and cultural forces of pre-World War I France. Cubism, as a part of the Parisian artistic avant-garde, played an integral role in the turbulent 'Belle Epoque'. The author focuses for the first time on cubism's relation to the particular discourses of nationalism, aestheticism, gender, the social purpose of art - that gave meanings to the experience of modernity in Paris in the decade before the war

The avant-garde : a very short introduction by David Cottington( Book )
9 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 374 libraries worldwide
For over a hundred years, the idea of the "avant-garde" has been perhaps the most important and influential force in modern culture, ruling the critical assessment of the significance of an artist or a work of art. If they have been judged to be "avant-garde," then they are worthy of consideration. But very little attempt has been made to explore why the idea of the "avant-garde" carries so much authority, or how it came to do so. What is more, the term remains a difficult one to define, and is often used in a variety of ways. In this Very Short Introduction, art historian David Cottington illuminates the concept of the avant-garde, exploring its wider context through the development of western modernity, capitalist culture, and the global impact of both. Cottington looks at the relation between "the avant-garde"--That is, the social entity (the "club")--and "avant-garde" qualities in a work of art (or design, or architecture, or any other cultural product), and he sheds light on the meaning of "avant-gardism." Perhaps most interesting, he considers whether--now that contemporary art seems to have broken all taboos and is at the center of a billion-dollar art market--is there still an "avant-garde" at all. And if so, what is the point of it and who are the artists concerned?
