"Alfred Jensen's art is significant, not because it is a representative signpost of art historical progression, but because it is almost uncategorizable in its uniqueness." Preface by Michael Govan, with essays by Lynne Cooke, David Anfam, Michael Newman, and Maria Reidelbach.
Alice Neel (1900-1984) is widely considered one of the greatest portraitists of the twentieth century. Published on the occasion of a solo exhibition at David Zwirner, New York, this beautifully designed book presents a selection of portraits and still lifes from the last two decades of the artist's life.
Widely regarded as one of the most important American painters of the 20th century, Alice Neel is internationally recognized for her contributions to Abstract Expressionism, especially her perceptive portraiture.
The first of four volumes documenting Alighiero Boetti's contribution, an artist who has spent his whole life conducting complex research into a variety of themes. A master of construction and invention, whose work is distinguished by a refined sense of conceptual irony.
Published to accompany the first large-scale retrospective of Alighiero Boetti's work outside Italy in over a decade, this volume presents the most comprehensive overview of the artist's career to date. Covering all periods of Boetti's broad oeuvre--including early sculptural experiments associated with the Arte Povera movement, conceptual and ephemeral projects of the 1970s and the monumental embroideries and tapestries he fabricated up to his death--this richly illustrated catalogue is structured as a typology of the artist's body of work rather than a chronological progression.
This book offers a sophisticated portrait through previously unpublished works, treasures from private collections shown here for the first time; these works are a record of the artistic vision of a man who , first anf foremost, was a philosopher of depth, subtelty and irony.
Alighiero e Boetti (1940-1994) has emerged as one of the most significant figures of postwar European art whose practice is having an unfolding impact on younger artists. His powerful influence can be attributed to the material diversity of his work, its conceptual ingenuity, and his political sensibility.
'Alighiero e Boetti. Beyond Books' covers the intense activity of printer Alighiero Boetti, from his artists' books to posters and exhibition invitations, taking a look along the way at his long association with the newspaper 'Il Manifesto'.
