2. Wayne Thiebaud [2014]

Book
358 pages : illlustrations (some color), portraits ; 31 cm
The most comprehensive and deluxe monograph on Wayne Thiebaud, a celebrated and active American artist, spanning the length of hiscareer, from the mid-1950s to the present. Wayne Thiebaud is one of the world s most popular and respected painters. Born in 1920, he has lived for most of his life in Sacramento, with much of his youth spent in Long Beach; Southern California, in particular Laguna Beach, remains an area of great sentimentality. For this book he has selected the works himself, an act of autobiography in a sense. At age 94, he looked back over his life and his work, rich with breakthroughs in painting and masterful individuality.This deluxe volume, with more than 200 illustrations, covers Thiebaud s career as a painter and draftsman from 1959 to 2014. It features many of the still lifes of pies, cakes, desserts, candies, and other objects lusciously painted, brightly colored, perfectly composed, and gently comic for which he is best known. Such works brought national recognition in 1962 with a seminal exhibition at the Allan Stone Gallery in New York, attracting rave reviews and, to the discomfort of the artist himself, leading critics to see him as part of the Pop Art movement. The other artistic genres that he cultivated most avidly since then are landscape and cityscape, with special interests in the Sacramento River valley and San Francisco. New essays by a wide range of writers give a fresh perspective on his life and work.".

Josef Albers's Interaction of Color is a masterwork in art education. Conceived as a handbook and teaching aid for artists, instructors, and students, this influential book presents Albers's singular explanation of complex color theory principles. Originally published by Yale University Press in 1963 as a limited silkscreen edition with 150 color plates, Interaction of Color first appeared in paperback in 1971, featuring ten color studies chosen by Albers, and has remained in print ever since. With over a quarter of a million copies sold in its various editions since 1963, Interaction of Color remains an essential resource on color, as pioneering today as when Albers first created it. Fifty years after Interaction's initial publication, this new edition presents a significantly expanded selection of close to sixty color studies alongside Albers's original text, demonstrating such principles as color relativity, intensity, and temperature; vibrating and vanishing boundaries; and the illusion of transparency and reversed grounds. A celebration of the longevity and unique authority of Albers's contribution, this landmark edition will find new audiences in studios and classrooms around the world.

Tom Thomson developed an artistic language that captured the unique qualities of the Canadian landscape - dazzling in colour and in tune with the subtle changing of the seasons. After his untimely death, Thomson's friends organised a memorial exhibition, and followed this up by forming probably the most famous artistic force in Canadian art history: the Group of Seven. Lawren Harris, J.E.H. MacDonald, Arthur Lismer, Frederick Varley, Frank Johnston, Franklin Carmichael and A.Y. Jackson created - along with Thomson - a landscape style that to this day influences the way Canadians visualise their own country. Highly revered in Canada, these great artists are virtually unknown outside. This spectacularly illustrated book, arranged according to the geographical areas depicted, with scholarly essays investigating different aspects of the painters' craft, aims to redress that imbalance. With contributions by Anna Hudson, Katerina Atanassova, Nils Ohlsen and MariA"tta Jansen.

8. Monet [2010]

Book
416 p. : ill. (some col.) ; 34 cm.
"Claude Monet (1840-1926) a laissé une oeuvre picturale scandée par une longue carrière qui, commencée au XIXe siècle, se poursuit au XXe siècle, sans se limiter au mouvement impressionniste auquel son nom est associé. Depuis les débuts du jeune caricaturiste amateur au Havre jusqu'au grand peintre des Nymphéas, en passant par la contribution de l'artiste aux expositions des impressionnistes, ainsi que par ses différents envois au Salon et aux expositions de galeries, cette monographie embrasse l'itinéraire artistique complet du peintre. La notion de plein air est notamment pleinement reconsidérée. Paysagiste avant tout de la Normandie à la côte méditerranéenne en passant par les bords de Seine, Argenteuil mais aussi Belle-Ile et la Creuse, il élabore au fil des années des méthodes de peindre sans précédent. La problématique de la série, dans sa relation aux sites et à la temporalité, est tout particulièrement soulevée à propos de la Normandie Les Meules et La Cathédrale de Rouen, et de Giverny où Monet s'est installé en 1883, devenant un "peintre-jardinier". Une poétique des éléments naturels sans précédent s'y exprime et s'épanouit dans les paysages d'eau, si chers à Georges Clemenceau. Un croisement de sources permet de documenter judicieusement les tableaux analysés qui sont examinés attentivement dans leur facture. La correspondance, y compris les lettres reçues par Monet récemment dispersées sur le marché, et les textes critiques sont cités, d'Octave Mirbeau à Marcel Proust. Dans une étude de la genèse des oeuvres et du style de Monet, l'ouvrage aborde aussi les sources de l'artiste, notamment l'influence des arts graphiques, depuis les keepsakes romantiques jusqu'aux estampes japonaises ou aux gravures de Whistler. Ses carnets de croquis et ses pastels, rarement reproduits, sont ici avantageusement représentés. Enfin, la stratégie d'exposition de Monet et les relations avec les marchands et les collectionneurs, ainsi que la diffusion de son art en Angleterre et aux États-Unis, mais aussi au Japon, sont révélatrices, au delà de sa reconnaissance en France autour du don à l'État des Nymphéas et de leur présentation à l'Orangerie des Tuileries, de son "aura" internationale."P.

As seen in O: The Oprah Magazine, the New York Times Book Review, USA Today, Cool Hunting, and countless other media outlets, The Map as Art is available now in a paperback edition. This volume by Katharine Harmon, author of our best-selling book You Are Here, extends that book's celebration of mapmaking to the world of artists' maps.It is little surprise that in an era of globalized politics, culture, and ecology contemporary artists are drawn to mapsto express their visions. Using paint, salt, souvenir tea towels, or their own bodies, map artists explore a world free ofgeographical constraints. In The Map as Art, Harmon collects 360 colorful, map-related artistic visions by well-known artists--such as Ed Ruscha, Julian Schnabel, Olafur Eliasson, William Kentridge, and Vik Muniz--and many more less-familiar artists for whom maps are the inspiration for creating art. Essays by Gayle Clemans bring an in-depth look into the artists' maps of Joyce Kozloff, Landon Mackenzie, Ingrid Calame, Guillermo Kuitca, and Maya Lin. Together, the beautiful reproductions and telling commentary make this an essential volume for anyone open to exploring new paths.

Maps can be simple tools, comfortable in their familiar form. Or they can lead to different destinations: places turned upside down or inside out, territories riddled with marks understood only by their maker, realms connected more to the interior mind than to the exterior world. These are the places of artists' maps, that happy combination of information and illusion that flourishes in basement studios and downtown galleries alike. It is little surprise that, in an era of globalized politics, culture, and ecology, contemporary artists are drawn to maps to express their visions. Using paint, salt, souvenir tea towels, or their own bodies, map artists explore a world free of geographical constraints. Katharine Harmon knows this territory. As the author of our best-selling book You Are Here, she has inspired legions of new devotees of imaginative maps. In The Map as Art, Harmon collects 360 colorful, map-related artistic visions by well-known artistssuch as Ed Ruscha, Julian Schnabel, Olafur Eliasson, Maira Kalman, William Kentridge, and Vik Munizand many more less-familiar artists for whom maps are the inspiration for creating art. Essays by Gayle Clemans bring an in-depth look into the artists' maps of Joyce Kozloff, Landon Mackenzie, Ingrid Calame, Guillermo Kuitca, and Maya Lin. Together, the beautiful reproductions and telling commentary make this an essential volume for anyone open to exploring new paths.

Marlene Dumas is celebrated around the world for her highly charged depictions of the human form. In her oil paintings, drawings and watercolours she captures the body in all its states, from pain to pleasure, eroticism to pathos, birth to death. These works often focus on the body as a contested site with regard to issues such as race, pornography and illegal immigration, but they also address such timeless themes as mortality, sexuality and childhood. Above all, they express a boundless faith in the power of painting to communicate complex psychological realities with eloquence and humour. Born in Cape Town, South Africa, in 1953, Dumas has lived in Amsterdam since 1976. Her work has been the subject of major solo exhibitions at museums such as the Tate Gallery in London (1996), the Centre Pompidou in Paris (2001) and the Museum of Modern Art in New York (2008). It has also been featured around the world in major group exhibitions such as Documenta (1982, 1992) and biennials in Sydney (1984, 2000), Sao Paulo (1985), Johannesburg (1995), Venice (1995, 2003, 2005) and Shanghai (2000). This revised and expanded edition of her landmark "Phaidon" monograph has been completely redesigned and updated with new essays and full-colour reproductions of recent works. In the Survey chapter, Dutch art critic Dominic van den Boogerd examines Dumas' work in relation to a range of conceptual legacies in depictions of the human figure. For the Interview New York artist Barbara Bloom discusses with Dumas issues ranging from intellectual process to the representation of the self in art. Journalist and former Editor of "Vogue Italia Mariuccia Casadio" looks at the painting Josephine (1997) in the Focus, reflecting on the iconic legacy of its subject, Josephine Baker. For her Artist's Choice Dumas has selected two authors: Oscar Wilde, whose story "The Fisherman and His Soul" inspired the artist's early series of works on the theme of mermaids; and Jean Genet, whose autobiography "Le Journal du Voleur" (1949, translation "Thief's Journal", 1964) finds transgressive beauty in the criminal underworld. Marlene Dumas has often acted as a spokesperson for her work, and Artist's Writings features many seminal texts on her own art as well as meditations on love, religion and politics. Ilaria Bonacossa's "Update" essay provides a complete overview of Dumas' recent paintings and drawings, charting themes in each successive body of work from 1999 to the present. An extensive Chonology, illustrated with snapshots, sketches and ephemera - some never before published - provides a complete overview of Dumas' career to date.

Drawing is a language, a necessary skill for anyone who wants to express ideas or feelings in written images. Like all languages, it can be mastered with practice and instruction. Author Keith Micklewright distills a lifetime of hard thinking about drawing, presenting techniques-along with exercises-that help us become fluent at visual communication. The advantage of his approach is that drawing is seen as a flexible form of expression rather than a set of mechanical skills. There is no right way to draw creatively, anymore than there is one style of writing creatively. To drive this point home, Micklewright illustrates the book with marvelous drawings by great artists, from Old Masters to the present, that range from precise portraiture to ecstatic nature studies. There is no other book on the subject that combines such a deep, lucid text with such a generous collection of inspirational art.
