2. Chaïm Soutine [2012]

Book

  • Soutine, qu'en penser? / Marie-Paule Vial -- Soutine et les débats de son époque / Sophie Krebs -- Soutine, ses marchands, ses mécènes / Colette Giraudon -- D'après nature: Soutine et ses thèmes / Esti Dunow et Maurice Tuchmen, traduit de l'anglais par Camille Fort -- Soutine et sa deuxième postérité / Claire Bernardi.
"En 1922, le marchand d'art et collectionneur parisien Paul Guillaume découvre Chaim Soutine. Les vingt-deux toiles réunies par ses soins et aujourd'hui conservées au musée de l'Orangerie constituent la plus grande collection européenne des oeuvres de l'artiste. Souvent présenté comme un peintre ombrageux, passionné, exigeant avec lui-même, parfois asocial, trop fréquemment considéré comme un artiste "maudit", Soutine, après avoir longtemps peiné à trouver sa place dans l'histoire de la peinture, demeure encore aujourd'hui assez peu ou mal connu. Pourtant, son travail a largement contribué à la naissance de l'Art moderne et son influence sur de nombreux artistes de la fin du xx' siècle fut particulièrement importante. À travers ses portraits, paysages, natures mortes et figures, cet ouvrage invite à redécouvrir Soutine, et à porter un nouveau regard sur ta puissance expressionniste de son oeuvre."--P. [4] of cover.

6. Giorgio Morandi [2008]

Book
73, [7] p. : ill. (some col.) ; 21 cm.
This book presents an evocative and insightful survey of the works of renowned Italian artist and engraver Giorgio Morandi (1890-1964). Drawn mainly from British and American collections, it focuses on his drawings, watercolours, and etchings. A very private and reserved artist, Morandi focused his extraordinary artistic sensitivity upon the same motifs again and again, yet each time depicting them anew. As well as being an incredibly talented and artist, he was a master engraver whose celebrated etchings reveal his unmatched ability to express lightness and depth.

8. Peter Doig [2008]

Book
160 p. : ill. (chiefly col.) ; 28 cm.
Peter Doig has developed a highly distinctive approach to figurative painting and print-making that has seen him exhibited at major museums and galleries world wide and won him international acclaim. Born in Edinburgh in 1959, raised in Canada, and based in London for two decades, he now lives in Trinidad. Though he has consistently engaged with a tradition of romantic realism, somewhat at odds with the prevailing mainstream, his work has, paradoxically had a deep influence on contemporary painting.Doig always paints from photographic sources: film stills, newspaper photos, postcards, album covers and a host of other randomly found images. He gives himself free rein to reinvent the image into grand and magical pictorial tableau. He has also taken inspiration from the changing environments and societies in which he has lived, from the ski-slopes and frozen lakes of his Canadian childhood, to the tropical landscapes of the Caribbean and the urban environment of London and Port of Spain.Published to accompany a major touring exhibition, this book will feature a contribution from leading art historian and critic Richard Shiff, as well as a revealing conversation between Doig and British artist Chris Ofili. Over 60 major paintings are reproduced, as well as a comprehensive collection of works on paper.

Josef Albers' "Interaction of Color" is a masterwork in twentieth-century art education. Conceived as a handbook and teaching aid for artists, instructors, and students, this timeless book presents Albers' unique ideas of colour experimentation in a way that is valuable to specialists as well as to a larger audience. Originally published by Yale University Press in 1963 as a limited silkscreen edition with 150 colour plates, "Interaction of Color" first appeared in paperback in 1971, featuring ten representative colour studies chosen by Albers. The paperback has remained in print ever since and remains one of the most influential resources on colour for countless readers. This new paperback edition presents a significantly expanded selection of more than thirty colour studies alongside Albers' original unabridged text, demonstrating such principles as colour relativity, intensity, and temperature; vibrating and vanishing boundaries; and the illusion of transparency and reversed grounds. In a larger format and with enhanced production values, this expanded edition celebrates the unique authority of Albers' contribution to colour theory and brings the artist's iconic study to an eager new generation of readers.

Emma Dexter's introductory text offers a critical account of the recent evolution and role of drawing in the art world, and introduces some of the trends, methods and artists included in the book. In the following and largest section of the book (over 300 pages and approximately 500 illustrations), the 100 or more artists are presented in an A to Z order. Some artists are presented on 2 pages, some on 4 pages. About 5 selections of work are reproduced for each artist, along a text written by an author who is a specialist on the artist's work. The 500-word texts are brief surveys of the artist's career to date, and aim at introducing the methods and subject matter at issue in their recent works. A selected list of exhibitions and bibliography also complements the reproductions and text on each artist.

Terry Winters's work of the past decade weaves disparate strains of idea, object, and physical operations into the primary logic of his art. His art contains an astonishing array of forms and demonstrates the equally surprising breadth of his artistic language. This retrospective volume continues where the mid-career survey (1992) at the Whitney Museum concluded, presenting the past decade of Winters's innovative work in paintings, prints, drawings, and artists' books. Terry Winters presents the ways in which the artist creates sets and subsets of distinctive works that interact with bodies of previous and current work. Also included are images by the artist that have not previously been exhibited or published. Winters's work is frequently included in conversations and studies relating to the interplay of art and science, and his recent paintings, drawings, and prints reflect his engagement with scientific and computational systems of thought and presentations of information. For Winters, abstract art has become a vehicle not for "reproducing and inventing form but for harnessing forces". By utilizing expressive means, "data becomes pictorial and spatial". This superbly illustrated volume displays the full range of Winters's newest works and the complex relationships that link them to one another. This book is the catalogue for an exhibition at the Addison Gallery of American Art, Andover, Massachusetts (September 18, 2004, to January 2, 2005); the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (January 23 to April 17, 2005); and the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (April 20 to July 10, 2005).

Willem de Kooning, one of the pioneers of Abstract Expressionism, experimented with the human form throughout his career. An artist deeply sceptical about Western ideals of beauty, he focused on anatomical fragmentation and spatial ambiguity to express the fleeting nature of the individual. This book, published in conjunction with an exhibition originating at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, explores de Kooning's drawings of the female form between 1940 and 1955. It reveals an artist who struggled to eliminate traditional barriers between drawing and painting as he explored ambiguities between the figure and its background. De Kooning relied on early-20th-century abstraction in his initial attempts to redefine the figure, drawing and re-drawing the same line until he resolved the image. Beginning in 1947-49, he synthesized abstraction and figuration, dismembering figures and rearranging them with seeming randomness. As his figural compositions developed, geometric configurations transformed into architectural elements (suggesting windows, doors, mirrors, paintings and furniture) to create ambiguous space. In 1951, de Kooning abruptly returned to depictions of women. Usi.
