Philip Guston Retrospective by Michael Auping, 1st Ed Exhibition Catalog

About the Item

Philip Guston Retrospective by Michael Auping. Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth in Association with Thames & Hudson, 2003. 1st Ed softcover exhibition catalog. MET October 28, 2003—January 4, 2004. The single best introduction to a tremendous force in American painting.--Chicago Tribune Philip Guston (1913-1980) had been a successful abstract painter for almost two decades when he boldly returned to figurative work in the late 1960s. His uncompromising late paintings, which broke taboos, baffled his admirers, and shocked the art establishment, ultimately inspired succeeding generations of artists, invigorating painting with a new sense of mission. This book, the most comprehensive survey of Guston's art to date, was originally published on the occasion of a major international exhibition. It brings together for the first time the different bodies of the artist's work, exposing the connective threads between each of his developmental stages. In-depth essays by a noted group of critics and art historians explore Guston's early influences and the emergence of symbols that resurfaced and played prominent roles in his late work. They provide insight into Guston's philosophy regarding abstraction, his role within its development, and the social and art historical context from which his so-called Klan paintings emerged. 197 illustrations, 158 in color. NPT Books, a division of Trent Antiques, has a large collection of used and out of print books on art, architecture, decoration and antiques with a focus on 1st editions, signed and limited editions.

  • Van Gogh a Retrospective 1986 1st Edition
    By Vincent van Gogh
    Located in North Hollywood, CA
    Van Gogh a Retrospective 1986 1st edition. Large beautiful heavy hardcover coffee table book. New York: Hugh Lauter Levin Associates, 1986. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. Very Good in a Very Good dust jacket. Dimensions:13.50 X 10.5 X 1.50 inches. * Publisher ‏ : ‎ Hugh Lauter Levin Associates; First edition. (January 1, 1986) * Language ‏ : ‎ English * Hardcover ‏ : ‎ 385 pages Synopsis: This is a very useful book. If you are interested only in the reproductions (good drawings as well as paintings), you will enjoy their high quality--and the breadth of Vincent's work that they cover. If you are interested in primary resources about van Gogh's life--newspaper articles; letters and reminiscences from friends, fellow artists, relatives--this volume is a real treasure. Between the excellent reproductions and the extraordinarily fine collection of biographical materials, this must be the best one-volume source on van Gogh. By the time he died in 1890 at the age of thirty-seven Vincent van Gogh had painted hundreds of pictures, yet sold only a few. Today his paintings sell for millions of dollars each, and his life as an artist is legendary. He is the quintessential modern artist, operating on the edge of his sensibilities, where life and art are inextricably bound together. Van Gogh : a retrospective tells the story of the great Dutch artist as a single volume has never told it before, illuminating his work with a fascination selection of primary texts, including some of Van Gogh's letters. In 125 superb color reproductions and 103 black-and-white illustrations, the struggles and triumphs of Van Gogh's art are surveyed from the early dark landscapes and paintings of Dutch and Belgian laborers to the bright, intense visions of Paris, Arles, Saint Remy, and Auvers, where he took his life. Complementing the works are pertinent photographs from the period and portraits of the artist by Toulouse-Lautrec, Emile Bernard, Paul Gauguin, and others. Vincent Willem van Gogh was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter who posthumously became one of the most famous and influential figures in Western art history. In a decade, he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, most of which date from the last two years of his life. From Publishers Weekly "He did not paint his pictures; it was like he exhaled them in a gasping, boiling breath," one German critic aptly wrote of Van Gogh. Reminiscences of the artist by friends and passing acquaintances, letters from his brother Theo and appreciations by critics and artists make up the text of this handsomely packaged potpourri. For Margritte, the blind force of Van Gogh's obsessions made the tortured artist an unfree man. To Kokoschka, the tension in the painter's famous sunflowers and undulating cypresses speak of the fragility of an easygoing lifestyle in a mechanized age. Each artist seems to confront his or her own concerns when analyzing Van Gogh. Jean Renoir, Francoise Gilot, Gauguin and Klee are among the commentators. One hundred twenty-five superior color reproductions and 103 halftones remind us that Van Gogh could do a very formal Still Life with Coffeepot, a street scene ablaze with fauve-like color or the solemn, biblical Raising of Lazarus...
