The OCLC Research WorldCat Identities project is ending. The work provided valuable insight into how to mine bibliographic data for insight into the People and Organizations that create and serve as subjects library materials. The findings demonstrated the power of data mining over the world’s largest set of bibliographic metadata and highlighted the value of collaborative collective cataloging. The WorldCat Identities data has positively impacted OCLC’s work to build the WorldCat Entities application and the 150 million Person and Work descriptions accessible through it. This work will continue to build our entity ecosystem to support the future knowledge work of librarians.

The WorldCat Identities web application will be retired and shut down in the coming months and the data is no longer being updated. The most recent version of the data is from July of 2022. As OCLC continues to build out the WorldCat Entities ecosystem, please use it as a source for persistent Person identifiers.

Alice Neel : painted truths by Alice Neel( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents a survey of the works of American artist Alice Neel (1900-1984). Neel became known for her oil on canvas portraits of friends, family, lovers, poets, artists and strangers. Her paintings are notable for their expressionistic use of line and color, psychological acumen, and emotional intensity. She was unique for her time because she was a portrait painter at a time when this was traditionally the role of a male artist. Although the book focuses on her portraits, it also covers the artist's early social realist paintings and cityscapes, tracing the evolution of Neel's style and examining themes that she revisited throughout her career

David Smith, sculpture and drawings by David Smith( Book )

6 editions published in 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Smith is judged to be the most important pioneer of a separate American movement in sculpture. He was the first to introduce welded steel, an artistic medium discovered in Europe, into twentieth-century sculpture in the New World. In his work he consiously adopted elements of Surrealism, Cubism and Constructivism movements familiar to him from a stay in Europe in 1935. In the 1950s he in turn affected the development of European welded steel sculpture, influencing such artists as Paolozzi, Luginbuhl, Tinguely, Chillida, Caro and Kricke. Until he turned to sculpture in the 1930s Smith considered himself a painter, and his drawings are among the finest products of American draughtsmanship."--Jacket

Failure by Lisa Le Feuvre( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Amidst current global uncertainty failure has become a central subject of investigation in recent art. Artists have actively claimed the space of failure to propose a resistant view of the world. Here success is deemed overrated, doubt embraced, experimentation encouraged and risk considered a viable position. Between the poles of success and failure lies a productive space where paradox rules and dogma is refused. This anthology establishes failure as a core concern in contemporary cultural production. Failure is one of a series documenting major themes and ideas in contemporary art."

Gillian Wearing by Gillian Wearing( Book )

16 editions published in 2012 in German and English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"British conceptual artist Gillian Wearing won the Turner Prize in 1997 while still in her mid 30. This comprehensive, copiously illustrated exhibition catalog documents the first major retrospective of her video and photography based works. One of the young British artists, Wearing is represented in important collections ranging from the Tate Modern to the Guggenheim and the Hammer Museum. The key to unlocking the work of Gillian Wearing is found not in art history but in reality television, writes Ben Luke in the London Evening Standard. Not so much the tabloid fodder of the 21st century but the tough stuff from the Sixties and Seventies. Always at the grittier end of the Young British Artists spectrum, she is in essence a documentary film maker and photographer, her work weaving around the line that documentary treads between fact and fiction." --Publisher description
Adventures of the black square : abstract art and society 1915-2015 by Magnus af Petersens( Book )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring how the universal visual language of geometric abstraction was influenced by different societies, this volume also demonstrates how the movement's revolutionary aesthetic continues to impact culture around the globe. It traces a century of abstract art from 1915 to the present day, celebrating the accomplishments of both men and women and includes sculpture, film, photography and painting. Organised around four distinct themes - communication, architectonics, utopia and everyday life - the book presents a chronological survey from Russia to Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Central America, Africa, South America, and the US. Each of the 100 works is featured in double-page spreads with brief artist biographies. Essays by Tanya Barson, Briony Fer, Tom McDonough, and Joshua Jiang, contextualize the various geographic and aesthetic stages of the development of geometric abstraction. Published in association with Whitechapel Gallery, London
Hans Bellmer by Hans Bellmer( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and German and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Surrealists' fascination for dolls and machines resembling humans is especially evident in the work of Hans Bellmer (1902-1975). Rejecting the Nazis' Aryan ideals, the artist began creating disturbing dolls from wax, wood, flax, plaster and glue in 1933. This comprehensive monograph, containing new analytical essays by curators Agnes de la Beaumelle and Alain Sayag, and historian Weiland Schmied, as well as a detailed chronology of the artist's life, provides insight into the work of this master of Surrealism."--Jacket
Faces in the crowd : picturing modern life from Manet to today = volti nella folla : immagini dell vita moderna da Manet a oggi by Whitechapel Art Gallery( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The exhibition and its catalog trace a history of avant-garde figuration from a new perspective. Taking Manet's The Masked Ball at the Opera as its starting point, the book focuses on his contemporaries such as Degas and then moves through the twentieth century to artists of today. Some artworks represent a dramatic rupture with the past proposing radical and innovative modern forms and structures. Others picture modern life or its impact on our inner selves. Others consider art as an agent for further social change. All the works include critical and bibliographical entries, plus a selection of extracts from historical documents and artists writings from the 19th-century to today. Taken together this art fully illuminates its theme in which representations of the human figure are seen as expressions of modernity"--Global Books in Print
