James Rosenquist: A Retrospective
Walter Hopps
0892072679
August 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Lipsticks, automobiles, dishwashers, men in business suits, spaghetti, rockets, airplanes, hairdryers, ice cream cones and pigtailed girls. James Rosenquist has always known how to combine these seemingly disparate but always all-American elements into whirlwind, billboard-sized collages of airbrushed surreal euphoria, slamming colors, patterns and objects into one another with the eye of an advertising man and the heart of a Pop artist. This momentous catalogue, published to accompany the first in-depth survey of the artist's work since 1972, will give long-overdue, in-depth attention to Rosenquist's singular achievement in American art. Extensive illustrations cover major works in diverse media, including work on paper that reveals the artist's process, as well as extensive new and archival photography. Essays focus...

Defying Gravity: Contemporary Art and Flight
Huston Paschal
379132926X
November 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Inspired by the centenary of the Wright Brothers’ historic feat at Kitty Hawk, this catalog of the North Carolina Museum of Art’s kaleidoscopic exhibition shows how the human obsession with flight provided fertile ground for contemporary artists in every imaginable medium. One of the earliest and most sustained dreams human beings have nurtured has been the wish to fly. And although flight and aircraft have figured prominently in contemporary art, until now this intersection has not received much critical attention. The NCMA exhibition and this sumptuously illustrated catalog will undoubtedly rectify that omission. Defying Gravity features approximately ninety major works of art in varying styles and themes by forty-seven individual artists and four pairs of collaborators, including such internationally...


Pop Art

Paperback

Book Description
Mass culture, popular taste, and kitsch-previously considered outside the limits of fine art-were the inspiration for and provocative themes of Pop Art, a movement that enjoyed great prominence in the late 1950s and 1960s. Rejecting the idea that art and life should be separated, artists in both the United States and Britain-among them Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, Andy Warhol, Peter Blake, and Richard Hamilton-used mass-produced objects and photographic images to make a blatant connection between art and the postwar world of consumerism. This study follows the development of Pop, from its roots in the irreverence of Dada and Surrealism, to its rise in popularity as an art form that celebrated the glamour and hedonism of the newly commercialized Western world, while acknowledging its superficiality and...


Pop Art: A Critical History
Steven Henry Madoff (Editor)

October 1997
Paperback

From Library Journal
This not-to-be-missed anthology collects stimulating articles, interviews, and other texts defining "the phenomenon of Pop." Art critic Madoff contributes a fine introductory overview and then presents 94 critical articles, negative and positive, on this brash, vulgar, successful style. Most are culled from contemporary American art magazines and newspapers during the Pop era of the 1960s. Students and specialists alike will find overlooked or forgotten material here and will especially note that many early discussions still ring true today. The book's five sections are precursors, reviews dating from 1962 to 1970, major artists (Lichtenstein, Oldenburg, Rosenquist, and Warhol), 11 artists on the periphery, and a few articles from the 1970s to the 1990s. Discussions of single artists are most interesting, with the...
