Book Description
The catalogue of the three major European exhibitions in 2001/2 of the great American painter, Brice Marden, with text by the curator Mario Codognato. The 70 works were selected by the famously reclusive artist himself, and therefore provide a unique insight into his collected oeuvre. A rare opportunity to view the great American artist Brice Marden’s works in Europe came last year to Rome and now moves to Turin and Munster. Until recently European connoisseurs of his paintings, etchings and prints have made pilgrimages across continents to be able to collate his work. Some key to this elusive artist is derived from his studio high above the cosmopolitan frenzy of The Bowery in New York. It is a sanctuary of discipline, equanimity, equilibrium and control far removed from the city’s anarchy below. Yet he...

Claes Oldenburg Drawings in the Whitney Museum of American Art

Book Description
Pop artist Claes Oldenburg has long been one of the most popular American artists, and museumgoers worldwide are familiar with his soft sculptures of everyday objects. For the past four years, the Whitney Museum of American Art has been quietly acquiring his drawings, as well as those made with his wife and artistic partner, Coosje van Bruggen. Most major art museums have no more than 10 Oldenburg drawings in their holdings: the Whitney now has approximately 90-the largest such collection in the world. This assemblage of Oldenburg drawings is evidence of the museum's commitment to collecting in depth the work of great living American draftsmen. Published to accompany the largest exhibition to date of Oldenburg's drawings, this beautifully produced volume covers nearly a 40-year period, from 1959 to 1998, and features...


Looking East

Book Description
This book focuses on three contemporary painters who have found profound inspiration in Chinese art. Brice Marden, Michael Mazur, and Pat Steir have engaged in passionate relationships with various art forms from China and responded quite differently in their paintings. The successful hybridization of East and West witnessed in the work of these three artists has considerably extended the life of modernism by reemphasizing its latent Asian component. The recent work of these three artists is examined in depth, as are other American artists with an interest in Asian art, among them James McNeill Whistler, Georgia OíKeeffe, Mark Tobey, and Agnes Martin.

Book Description
This volume provides a rare glimpse into the most intimate works of the internationally acclaimed artist Brice Marden. Twenty years ago, Marden produced a series of small and virtually unknown paintings on the Greek island of Hydra, which the artist first visited in 1971. Inspired by the island's ancient marble quarries, Marden created these private paintings in oil on marble fragments as tokens for friends and family. Between 1981 and 1987, the artist made a total of 32 paintings on marble, gathered together here for the first time in a single volume. The period coincided with changes in his publicly exhibited paintings. In 1987, the date of his last painting on marble, Marden presented the first public exhibition of his calligraphic paintings, as opposed to his earlier monochrome work. An essay by Lisa Liebmann here...

Paperback

Book Description
Drawings of Choice reflects the wide range of contemporary drawing -- from the casual sketch to the elaborate picture, presenting preparatory studies as well as accomplished, technically labored drawings. The book includes works by 46 artists from an extraordinary, privately held collection of contemporary American drawings from the 1960s to the present that emphasize the crucial role that drawings play in the development of the artistic process. Represented are works by prominent American artists, as well as younger, lesser-known artists. The collection is particularly strong in its group of minimal and conceptual art from the 1960s and 1970s, by artists such as Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Sol LeWitt, Agnes Martin, Richard Serra, and Lawrence Weiner. The very personal character of this collection and especially its...


Threshold: Byron Kim 1990-2004

Book Description
For the past decade, Byron Kim has maintained a steadfast commitment to exploring the potential for content in abstract painting. Kim's work reflects his attraction to the postwar tradition of monochromatic painting, exemplified by Ad Reinhardt's Black Paintings and Brice Marden's fields of color. While Kim incorporates the visual language of color and abstraction, he also addresses cultural and personal issues, positioning himself closely with many of his contemporaries, including Glenn Ligon and Felix Gonzalez-Torres. Like Ligon and Gonzalez-Torres, Kim has invested the formal strategies of the 1960s, such as seriality and grids, with private and political significance; the end result resonates with elegance and emotional complexity. Threshold provides an overview of Kim's career from several vantage points: a...
