Adrian Searle Peter Doig Contemporary Artists Phaidon Press, 2007. softcover,160pag illustr. ISBN: 9780714845043 Raised in Canada and now living in Trinidad, during the two decades he spent in London Peter Doig (b. 1959) emerged as one of Britain's most influential painters. Bringing together disparate visual references in an otherworldly visual space, Doig's artworks never the less belong to a landscape painting tradition that dates back to the nineteenth century. His visionary canvases, with their hallucinogenic colours and heavily textured surfaces, have helped spark contemporary art's resurgent interest in idiosyncratic figurative painting. Peter Doig is represented by Victoria Miro, London; Contemporary Fine Arts, Berlin; Michael Werner, New York; and Gavin Brown, New York. Boeknummer: 62343 | Prijs: EUR 55.00 In winkelwagen

Armin Zweite, Peter Bürger, Martin Harrison, Daria Kolacka Francis Bacon : The Violence of the Real Thames & Hudson, 2006. 1. Hardcover, 256 pages, ENG, 305 x 230 mm, in Good condition, dustjacket, illustrated in colour / b/w. ISBN: 9780500093351 Dramatic depictions of human forms ? writhing painfully, dissolving, wrestling or engulfing one another, seated or in motion ? are ubiquitous in the work of Francis Bacon (1909-1992), one of the most eminent painters of the 20th century. Bacon portrayed the ordeal of the vulnerable, defencelessly exposed body like no other artist of his generation. His individuals are usually alone, isolated from their surroundings, trapped in empty, windowless rooms or behind the bars of cages. Bacon?s figures act on stage-like platforms, doubled over in torment, sliding into formlessness. By wiping, scratching and erasures, Bacon converted the picture surface into a field of perpetual activity ? and in the process, created images of great forcefulness, sensibility and beauty. Bacon found his models not only in the history of art, but also in photographs of athletes, soccer players, or boxers in combat. He also betrayed a strong interest in the photographic sequences through which Eadweard Muybridge, in the later 19th century, registered the phases of a path of animal movement. Such instinctively performed motions disclosed to Bacon actions of an original sensuality which he strove to capture in his pictures. Boeknummer: 62054 | Prijs: EUR 39.95 In winkelwagen

Cy Twombly, Laszlo Glozer Cy Twombly : Photographs 1951-2007 Schirmer Mosel, 2008. 1. Hardcover, 261 pages , ENG / GER, 330 x 255 x 35 mm, dustjacket, as New / wie Neu, illustrated in colours / illustrationen in Farbe. ISBN: 9783829603683 Ever since his student days, Cy Twombly has concerned himself with photography, but only in recent years has he turned it into a unique artistic concept- and an aesthetic sensation. Twombly's photographic pieces are documents of a fascinatingly enigmatic and personal poetry. His studios in Lexington and Gaeta, details of his own sculptures and collected sculptural items, landscape motifs, fruits and flowers appear in a mysteriously transformed manner on these delicate sheets. Printed in matte colors on matte paper using a dry-print process that imbues them with velvet and an almost grainy hue, the images are vaguely reminiscent of the pictorialist tradition in fin de siecle photography. In their minimalist way, however, generating aesthetic visions by the simplest of means, they are utterly contemporary. 'Photographs 1951-2007' presents Twombly's photographic works of over fifty years- full of surprises and breathtaking beauty. Boeknummer: 61693 | Prijs: EUR 75.00 In winkelwagen

Hubertus Gassner ; Francisco Jarauta, Armin Zwelte, Bernd Kluser Sean Scully : Paintings, Pastels, Watercolors, Photographs 1990 to 2000 Richter Verlag, 2001. 2 ed.. Hardcover, 272 pages, ENG, 300 x 240 x 30 mm, dustjacket, As New, illustrated in colour / b/w. ISBN: 9783933807359 The Irish-born artist Sean Scully has created a painterly oeuvre that, in this volume, reveals itself as vitally important in the ongoing dialogue about painting. Horizontal and vertical stripes are the sole motif in his work. He alternately groups strips of paint together and lays multiple stripes of color over one another, which produce visually irritating clashes. It is a working method that is revealed in the works themselves, in the places where these dueling lines meet; edges tell the story of process. The seemingly endless number of neutral stripes leave these paintings open to a variety of interpretations; they allow the viewers freedom to imprint their own visions on them. Usually in a large format, they recall landscapes, facades, buildings, and ornaments. Along with 254 color reproductions, this book includes a complete biography, several critical essays, and an illuminating interview with the artist. Sean Scully was born in Dublin, Ireland, in 1945. Since moving to the United States in the mid-1970s, Scully has taught at major institutions including Princeton University, received a Guggenheim Fellowship, and been the subject of a major touring exhibition organized by the High Museum in Atlanta in 1996. He is represented in virtually every major public collection of 20th-century art. Boeknummer: 61747 | Prijs: EUR 110.00 In winkelwagen

Judith Nesbitt Peter Doig Thames & Hudson, 2008. softcover, 160pages, Illustrated. ENG. ISBN: 9781854377821 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. Boeknummer: 62344 | Prijs: EUR 55.00 In winkelwagen

Kelly Grovier ; Faye Fleming Inner : The Collected Writings and Selected Interviews of Sean Scully Hatje Cantz, 2016. 1. Hardcover, 336 pages, ENG, 265 x 195 x 33 mm, New, illustrated in colour / b/w. ISBN: 9783775741644 Sean Scully (born 1945) is among the greatest abstract painters of our age. He is also one of the most outspoken. Since the late 1960s, Scully's visual expressiveness has been matched by a verbal dynamism that is no less arresting than his art. Varying widely in form from brief reflections to essay-length meditations on artists such as Van Gogh, Morandi and Rothko, Scully's writings are distinguished by a brutal lyricism and an effortlessly aphoristic turn of phrase. The nearly 200 texts that comprise this collection provide a unique perspective on one of the most engaging artistic imaginations of the past half-century. Here, readers will discover the effusions of a mind tirelessly wrestling with the profoundest issues of art, cultural history and what it means to be a creator in the contemporary world. The texts are illustrated by images including facsimile reproductions of handwritten pages which also feature drawings. Boeknummer: 61746 | Prijs: EUR 50.00 In winkelwagen

Nicola Del Roscio CY TWOMBLY DRAWINGS : CATALOGUE RAISONNE VOLUME 2 (1956-1960) SCHIRMER MOSEL, 2012. 1. Hardcover, 308 pages, ENG, 350 x 260 x 40 mm, dustjacket, NEW condition !!, illustrated in colours. ISBN: 9783829604864 Volume 2 of "Cy Twombly Catalogue Raisonné of Drawings" covers the very fruitful years between 1956 and 1960. Still a resident of New York in 1956, Twombly moves to Italy in early 1957 where he will stay, with intervals, until the end of his life. His first shows in Galleria La Tartaruga in Rome, Galleria del Cavallino, Venice, and Galleria del Naviglio, Milan, make him well-known in European avant-garde circles. In the summer of 1959 he rents an apartment in the village of Sperlonga at the Tyrrhenian Sea between Rome and Naples. Here he creates his sequence "Poems to the Sea" influenced by Mallarmé's poetry. The year 1959 is also marked by the artist's marriage and the birth of his son Alessandro in December. His work is increasingly dealing with color, yielding most beautiful colored drawings. The influence of street graffiti, too, is evident in his work incorporating explicit sexual allusions and jokes. At the end of 1960 Cy Twombly has his first solo exhibition at the Leo Castelli Gallery in New York. Boeknummer: 61695 | Prijs: EUR 150.00 In winkelwagen

Richard Shone ; Molly Sisley ; Jane Shone Sisley Phaidon, 2004. 1. Softcover, 240 pages, Texte en Francais, Tres belle exemplaire, 290 x 250 x 22 mm, illustrations en couleur / n/b. ISBN: 9780714894119 Alfred Sisley (1839-1899) fut l'un des plus grands peintres de paysages du XIXe siècle et l'un des chefs de file du mouvement impressionniste. Cette monographie détaillée fournit des informations inédites sur sa vie et son oeuvre. Accompagné de nombreuses reproductions de ses peintures, le texte révèle l'?uvre d'un artiste original à la puissance indéniable. Sisley a consacré toute sa production aux paysages. Ses célèbres peintures des villes de la banlieue parisienne sous la neige, des inondations de la Seine à Port-Marly ou des régates sur la Tamise sont remarquables par l'équilibre des tons et l'atmosphère poétique qui s'en dégage, en même temps que par la description précise des sujets représentés. Le critique Kenneth Clark considère d'ailleurs la série des peintures de la Tamise comme l'un des " moments parfaits de l'impressionnisme ". Pourtant, comme le dit de lui son ami Arsène Alexandre : " Sisley a vécu fier et est mort pauvre. " L'?uvre de Sisley n'a été pleinement reconnue qu'après sa mort prématurée et reste encore de nos jours injustement méconnue. Dans cette monographie, Richard Shone, s'appuyant sur sa connaissance de l'Ile-de-France, apporte un nouveau regard et analyse les différentes phases du travail de Sisley. Ses recherches ont mis à jour certains aspects de la vie de l'artiste : sa nationalité anglaise, le début de sa carrière, son combat pour gagner sa vie, l'isolement des dernières années. La vie privée de Sisley apporte en effet un éclairage particulier sur son évolution artistique. Richement illustré, cet ouvrage présente notamment d'importantes séries de peintures jamais publiées auparavant ensemble en aussi grand nombre-les inondations, les paysages sous la neige, l'église de Moret-sur-Loing et la côte galloise. Cet ouvrage propose l'image d'un peintre qui s'est constamment renouvelé, s'est ouvert aux influences et a offert une vision personnelle de la campagne française, aussi forte et séduisante que celle des autres impressionnistes. Le livre de Richard Shone confirme la justesse du jugement de Pissarro pour qui Sisley était " un grand et magnifique artiste ". Boeknummer: 60395 | Prijs: EUR 42.00 In winkelwagen

Sebastian Schütze, Maria Antonietta Terzoli ; translation : Antonia Reiner, William Blake the Drawings for Dante's Divine Comedy Taschen, 2014. 1. Hardcover, 324 pages, ENG, 405 x 300 x 50 mm, NEW, Full Page illustrations in colour / b/w, including a sturdy cardboard box with imprint, for protection!. ISBN: 9783836555128 Celebrated around the world as a literary monument, The Divine Comedy, completed in 1321 and written by Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) is widely considered the greatest work ever composed in the Italian language. The epic poem describes Dante's journey through Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven, representing, on a deeper level, the soul's path towards salvation. In the last few years of his life, Romantic poet and artist William Blake (1757-1827) produced 102 illustrations for Dante's masterwork, from pencil sketches to finished watercolors. Like Dante's sweeping poem, Blake's drawings range from scenes of infernal suffering to celestial light, from horrifying human disfigurement to the perfection of physical form. While faithful to the text, Blake also brought his own perspective to some of Dante's central themes. Today, Blake's illustrations, left in various stages of completion at the time of his death, are dispersed among seven different institutions. This TASCHEN edition brings these works together again, alongside key excerpts from Dante's masterpiece. Two introductory essays consider Dante and Blake, as well as other major artists who have been inspired by The Divine Comedy, including Sandro Botticelli, Michelangelo, Eugène Delacroix, Gustave Doré and Auguste Rodin. With a close reading of Blake's illustrations, and 14 fold-out spreads to allow the most delicate of details to dazzle, this is a breathtaking encounter with two of the finest artistic talents in history, as well as with such universal themes as love, guilt, punishment, revenge, and redemption.

Simpson, Marc, Corn, Wanda M., Hartley, Cody, Lewis, Michael J., Like Breath on Glass : Whistler, Inness, and the Art of Painting Softly Mass. Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, 2008. 1.

It should be like breath on the the surface of a pane of glass."*****. ISBN: 9780300134063 Released in conjunction with a 2008 exhibition. The title paraphrases American artist James McNeill Whistler, who said, "Paint should not be applied thick. It should be like breath on the the surface of a pane of glass." Catalog is accompanied by these articles: Painting Softly, An Introduction / Marc Simpson -- Whistler, Modernism, and the Creative Afflatus / Marc Simpson -- George Inness, Softness, and the Vapor Barrier / Leo G. Mazow -- True Illusions in Soft Paintings / Cody Hartley -- Materials for Immateriality / Joyce Hill Stoner -- The "Inaction Painters" and Their Moment / Michael J. Lewis -- Reflections on "The Color of Mood" / Wanda M. Corn. Simply stated, an exquisite book, and one that is worthy of any coffee table or personal library. Through an innovative manner of handling paint, a group of American artists around 1900 created deceptively simple canvases that convey images of shimmering transience, visions suggested rather than delineated. Focusing on this singular aesthetic characteristic, this catalogue explores this painterly phenomenon. This copy was once owned by interior and garden designer Henriette Suhr and carries her bookplate at front. Boeknummer: 61745 | Prijs: EUR 480.00 In winkelwagen

Susan Tallman KERRY JAMES MARSHALL : The Graphic Work Ludion, 2023. 1. HB, 305 x 240 mm, 256 pages, ENG edition, NEW, dustjacket, illustrated in colours / b/w. ISBN: 9789493039759 Best known as a painter, Kerry James Marshall has also produced a vast graphic oeuvre that has been seldom seen and rarely documented. This catalog raisonné offers the first public account of his graphic work and is also the first in-depth study of the role of printed images and print processes in Marshall's work as a whole. One of the most important American contemporary artists, Kerry James Marshall is known for artworks that address the 'crisis of under-representation' of the black figure in the pictorial traditions of the Western world, from museums to comic books. His work has been widely celebrated in major museum retrospectives such as Kerry James Marshall: Painting and Other Stuff (Antwerp, Copenhagen, Barcelona, Madrid) in 2014 and Mastry (Chicago, New York, Los Angeles) in 2017, and through numerous awards, including a MacArthur Fellowship in 1997. An assiduous worker, he spent his youth acquiring time-honored skills of art - drawing and painting, but also wood engraving and printing. By his mid-twenties, he recalls, 'I could paint in egg tempera... I was good at printmaking. I could do woodcuts, etchings, aquatints. I knew all of those techniques.' Most of his prints have been produced not in professional print workshops, but by the artist, working alone in his studio. They range from images the size of postcards to his 50-foot-long, 12 panel woodcut Untitled (1998-99), to iterations of his ongoing magnum opus, Rythm Mastr. And while some have entered prominent museum collections, many exist only in private collections or the artist's archive and are unknown to the public. This catalog raisonné offers the first public account of these important works and the first in-depth study of the role of printed images and print processes in Marshall's work as a whole.
