Описание: This spectacular five-decade survey of paintings, drawings and prints by Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) features over 100 works drawn primarily from the outstanding collections of the Centre Pompidou and the Milwaukee Art Museum. The comprehensive catalogue traces the artist's development from his formative period in Munich and his co-founding of the Blue Rider group and pivotal turn towards abstraction, to his return to Russia during the war, to his prolific work at the Weimar Bauhaus and final years in Paris. New scholarship illuminates murals Kandinsky designed in 1922, contextualizing this project at the transition from his Russian period to his time at the Bauhaus, where he taught mural painting and plunged fully into abstraction. Close examination of the works of art, Kandinsky's rich body of theoretical texts, and their pedagogical significance provides the foundation for essays on the celebrated artist's promotion of abstraction and on the reception of his work in the 21st century; today his artistic and theoretical output continues to inspire students, scholars and artists. Short texts on key works of art and timelines generously enhanced by archival photographs augment the catalogue.

Описание: The story of Roman Polanski's career is checkered with sadness and scandal. Arguably the most controversial film director of our time, his strokes of genius on the screen enthral, move and entertain us--and despite the events of his personal life, his power as a filmmaker is indisputable. He is a man who fascinates and intrigues, and the epic of his life is the stuff of movies itself. He continues to produce some of the most powerful movies of our time, notably The Pianist (2002), for which he won the Oscar for Best Director. Roman Polanski: A Retrospective is the ultimate tribute to one of the world's most prolific and influential film directors. Acclaimed film critic James Greenberg takes readers chronologically through Polanski's extraordinarily rich and varied career, offering profound insights and analyses for each film. Greenberg offers unparalleled insight into every one of Polanski's movies, from the early days of Knife in the Water (1962) to his latest masterpiece, Carnage (2011). Specially commissioned commentaries are interwoven with Greenberg's overview, along with sections that cover Polanski's talent not only as a director, but as an actor and screenwriter as well. The book is richly illustrated with more than 250 photographs, including behind the scene photographs from Polanski's movies, and it illuminates the backstory of a man whose harrowing childhood and highly controversial life could be a film themselves.

Описание: This insightful catalogue examines anew the full range of Alice Neel s (1900-1984)celebrated paintings of people, still life, and cityscapes. Featuring around seventy paintings spanning the entire length of her career, this handsome book accompanies a major retrospective of her work, and reveals her underlying interest in the history of photography, German painting of the 1920s, and other artists, such as Van Gogh and Cezanne, all of which provided an important precedent for the veracity and raw emotional intensity of her figurative works.Neel is renowned for her visual acuity and psychological depth, and her portraits and nude paintings of friends, family, strangers, and prominent cultural figures alike convey an incredibly consistent intimacy regardless of the relationship to her subject. The accompanying essays trace the trajectory of Neel s artistic language as it evolved alongside contemporaneous trends in the New York City art world and examines the manner in which her own work figured into the social and cultural contexts of her time. Created over a sixty year period, Neel s oeuvre offers a remarkably expressive document of the specific milieus she navigated through and ultimately transcends the marker of time altogether."

Описание: A beautiful new retrospective volume to accompany the major European exhibition in 2010.The life and work of Frida Kahlo were inextricably intertwined. This beautiful monograph celebrates the artist while exploring the lesser-known aspects of her story. Reproductions of Kahlo's paintings are accompanied by a series of illuminating essays that explore the artist's private writings and the intense public interest in her life, the role of physical and mental suffering in the creative process, and the coded and double meanings hidden in so much of Kahlo's work. In addition, a photographic essay compiled by her grandniece, Cristina Kahlo, features images from the family's private collection. As an icon of female strength and suffering, Frida Kahlo has become something of an art world myth. This scholarly yet profoundly moving illustrated tribute to her life and work offers a measured perspective that rises above the noise of celebrity to discover the true artist and the truth of her art.
