Chihuly : form from fire by Dale Chihuly( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chihuly's originality lies in his refusal to believe that there are fixed rules that must be adhered to," wrote the late Henry Geldzahler, former curator of contemporary art of New York's Metropolitan Museum, in his essay for this work. Accompanying the artist's traveling retrospective, the book documents 10 of Chihuly's rule breaking series from the Baskets, begun in the late 1970s, through the Pilchuck Stumps of 1992. Painter and art critic Walter Darby Bannard introduces the volume, which is more inclusive than a typical exhibition catalog, with a personal response to Chihuly and his glass. Seventy-five full-color reproductions and commentary on the individual series by the artist and noted authorities provide a visual and verbal overview of the artist's career. With listings of selected museum and public collections and permanent installations as well as an extensive bibliography, this book offers a definitive look at "Chihuly As of 1993," as Geldzahler titled his provocative essay in which he asserts that Chihuly "does go over the top at times."
Painters painting : a candid history of the New York art scene, 1940-1970 by Emile De Antonio( Visual )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A vibrant collective portrait of the legendary figures who powered the tumultuous post-war New York art scene ... De Antonio shows artists (and their critics and patrons) gossiping, drinking, and talking about life and art, and in the process illuminates the genesis of Abstract Expressionism. Footage of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's landmark exhibition New York Painting and Sculpture 1940-1970 supplement the film."--Container

A bigger splash by Jack Hazan( Visual )

11 editions published between 1974 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"1971: the artist David Hockney is well on his way to art world super-stardom. Filmmaker Jack Hazan, camera rolling, follows Hockney from London to New York to Los Angeles--capturing the artist as he struggles to create what would prove to be some of his most enduring works: those featuring Hockney's model and lover, Peter Schlesinger. Straddling the boundary between documentary and fiction, A bigger splash tells the story of Hockney's breakup with Schlesinger and its effect on Hockney, his work, and his close circle of friends"--Container
