  • Arshile Gorky: The Breakthrough Years

    Arshile Gorky (1904-1948) is recognized as one of the most crucial and intriguing figures in the early shaping of Abstract Expressionism. Gorky pioneered a complex vocabulary of forms by fusing landscapes remembered from his childhood home in Armenia with surrealist imagery and abstract plumes of color. In so doing, he helped create a distinctly new vision for painting, leading American art into one of the most experimental periods in its history.Gorky's most important paintings and drawings were executed from 1940 through 1947, powerfully expansive years that many regard as his breakthrough period. His rich, mature work of these years is the focus of this illuminating volume, the most comprehensive book on the subject.Michael Auping's valuable text provides an introduction to the life and art of Arshile Gorky as well as an insightful consideration of the grand psychological landscape The Liver is the Cock's Comb, 1944, a work pivotal to the development of Gorky's style. Dore Ashton writes a lucid account of this artist who tends to resist classification, contributing an art historical overview of Gorky's appreciation of such modern innovators of abstraction and Surrealism as Miro and Kandinsky. Matthew Spender provides biographical details of Gorky's early years, while a selection of Gorky's personal letters further sheds an intimate light on the artist and his achievements.

    IN 1956, Ed Ruscha drove from Oklahoma City to Los Angeles in a 1950 Ford sedan. That approximately 1,350 mile journey, which roughly followed Route 66 through western Oklahoma, North Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and the California basin, was seminal in putting Ruscha's career in motion literally. He would move to L.A. to study art and become one of that city's most prominent artists. That trip was also a conceptual trigger. To imagine yourself experiencing the American West from the windshield of a car is to come closer to understanding Ruscha's peripatetic vision of the world. Many of the themes and motifs that Ruscha has explored over his five-decade career point back to his driving experiences and especially the roadside landscape that he encountered at that formative moment in his life. This catalogue features key works inspired by the artist's love of driving in Los Angeles and the Western United States. 59 illustrations. 28 in color. 128p.

    This major retrospective catalogue surveys Freud’s portraits across the seven decades of his career. Featuring the finest portraits from public and private collections around the world, the book explores the stylistic development and remarkable technical virtuosity of an artist regarded as one of the most innovative figurative painters the medium has known. Freud’s chosen subjects were often his intimates – family members, friends, and artistic colleagues, such as Frank Auerbach, Francis Bacon, Leigh Bowery, and David Hockney. Freud was a private man who rarely gave interviews, and his thoughts on the complex relationship between artist and sitter and the challenges of painting nudes and self-portraits are published here for the first time, documented in a series of interviews with Michael Auping, conducted between May 2009 and January 2011. An illustrated chronology provides fascinating insights into Freud’s background as a grandson of Sigmund Freud, and his unorthodox artistic education. Illus., 200 color. 256p.

    During the 1960s and 1970s, a loosely affiliated group of Los Angeles artists--including Larry Bell, Mary Corse, Robert Irwin, James Turrell, and Doug Wheeler--more intrigued by questions of perception than by the crafting of discrete objects, embraced light as their primary medium. Whether by directing the flow of natural light, embedding artificial light within objects or architecture, or playing with light through the use of reflective, translucent, or transparent materials, each of these artists created situations capable of stimulating heightened sensory awareness in the receptive viewer. Phenomenal: California Light, Space, Surface, companion book to the exhibition of the same name, explores and documents the unique traits of the phenomenologically engaged work produced in Southern California during those decades and traces its ongoing influence on current generations of international artists.Foreword by Hugh M.

  • Urban Theater: New York Art in the 1980s

    • Format: Oversize Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9780847844548
    • Publisher: Skira Rizzoli
    • Published: October 2014
    Set to accompany a groundbreaking exhibition, this volume is the first to focus exclusively on New York’s 1980s art scene, reuniting many of today’s internationally renowned artists in relation to the urban context that shaped and inspired them. Vibrant and vital, discordant and even obscene, the New York art scene of the 1980s gave rise to some of the contemporary art world’s most recognizable features. As the artists who emerged in that decade now set records at auction, the era is ripe to be reexamined. Representing in turns a cool irony, reflections on media culture, consumerism, cartoons, and street art, the work collected here re-creates the tense energy of a grittier New York. This volume is richly illustrated with works by the decade’s most critically acclaimed artists, including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Ross Bleckner, Francesco Clemente, Eric Fischl, Nan Goldin, Peter Halley, Keith Haring, Jenny Holzer, Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, Sherrie Levine, Robert Longo, Robert Mapplethorpe, Allan McCollum, Richard Prince, David Salle, Kenny Scharf, Julian Schnabel, Cindy Sherman, Donald Sultan, Philip Taaffe, Andy Warhol, and Christopher Wool.
