Product Description & Reviews

This brilliant blend of history, biography, and criticism explores the seminal figures of twentieth-century French art—Matisse, Picasso, Derain, Léger, Dufy, Braque, Giacometti, Balthus, and Hélion—and the vital art world in which they thrived.The ten interlocking essays in this important book include radical new evaluations of Derain, Léger, and Dufy, and penetrating studies of the final works of Picasso and Braque. Paris Without End, Jed Perl’s first book, is now celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary and is essential reading for anyone passionate about modern art.Roberta Smith called it “a quiet, cogent tour de force. . . . As one critic’s demonstration of what he considers the best in art and the best way to write about it, this book sets a high standard.”Hilton Kramer also noted, “Everyone who cares about the art of the twentieth century will find something to disagree with in this book—its many unorthodox judgments are bound to be controversial—but that, in my view, is a mark of the book’s importance.”

Arneson and the Object
By the Palmer Museum of Art
ean: 9780911209617, isbn: 0911209611,
“I have been working with polychrome low-fire ceramics making objects and sculpture, arts, and crafts but never tiles for my floor.” —Robert Arneson, 1970 This catalogue, which accompanied an exhibition of the same name at the Palmer Museum of Art, provides new insight into the significance of the sculpture of Robert Arneson (1930–1992), an internationally acclaimed artist and influential teacher. Through much of his career, Arneson concentrated on making ceramic sculptures either of

Walter Pater and the Language of Sculpture (British Art: Global Contexts)
By Routledge
ean: 9781138256781, isbn: 1138256781,
Walter Pater and the Language of Sculpture is the first monograph to discuss the Victorian critic Walter Pater's attitude to sculpture. It brings together Pater's aesthetic theories with his theories on language and writing, to demonstrate how his ideas of the visual and written language are closely interlinked. Going beyond Pater's views on sculpture as an art form, this study traces the notion of relief (rilievo) and hybrid form in Pater, and his view of the writer as sculptor, a carver in

Mark Grotjahn: PAINTED SCULPTURE
By DISTANZ
ean: 9783954761364, isbn: 395476136X,
In a radical act of transformation, Mark Grotjahn (b. Pasadena, 1968; lives and works in Los Angeles) turns an ordinary wobbly cardboard box into a precious and solid work of art: a bronze sculpture on a pedestal. With rough cutouts for mouths and eyes, cardboard rolls for noses, and corrugated surfaces, the assemblages recall primitive infantile masks. Grotjahn casts them in bronze and then paints them in a gestural expressive style with streaks of bright oil paint. Set on pinewood bases, the

Anne Currier: Sculptures
By Arnoldsche Verlagsanstalt
mpn: 131col, ean: 9783897902435, isbn: 3897902435,
Let Anne Currier tell you about her work: 'I make ceramic sculptures that are shaped by the interplay of masses and voids. Through the simplicity of clay cylinders, cones, planes and edges, I can indulge my curiosity for inside and outside spaces. Projection and recession, light and shadow, substance and impression are all subject matter. On some occasions, references to the human body are present. The shapes are the players, intersecting, extending, colliding or passing

Emergency Noises: Sound Art and Gender (German Visual Culture)
By Peter Lang AG, Internationaler Verlag der Wissenschaften
mpn: 9783034319874, ean: 9783034319874, isbn: 3034319878,
Art history traditionally concentrates on the visual. Sound has either been ignored or has been appreciated in a highly selective manner within a different discipline: music. This book is about recent attempts by artists trained in (West) Germany to provoke listening experiences to awaken the senses. Their work is revolutionary in artistic terms and in what it reveals about human relations, especially concerning issues of gender. The main focus of the book is to explore a gendered reading of

James Turrell: The Other Horizon
By Cantz
ean: 9783893229680, isbn: 389322968X,
Artwork by James Turrell. Edited by Peter Noever. Contributions by Georges Didi-Huberman. Text by Daniel Birnbaum, Paul Virilio. In November 1966, 23-year-old artist James Turrell moved into an old hotel in Ocean Park, California, and immediately set to work sealing off all of its windows and insulating all of the walls. There, in the newly dark and silent space that had once been filled with the constant bustling of travelers, Turrell created his first light projection, ''Afrum-Proto.''

By Oxford University Press
mpn: 48 halftones, ean: 9780199599714, isbn: 0199599718,
Statues are among the most familiar remnants of classical art. Yet their prominence in ancient society is often ignored. In the Roman world statues were ubiquitous. Whether they were displayed as public honours or memorials, collected as works of art, dedicated to deities, venerated as gods, or violated as symbols of a defeated political regime, they were recognized individually and collectively as objects of enormous significance.By analysing ancient texts and images, Statues in Roman Society
