Art Book Jack Goldstein and the CalArts Mafia
RM 36.50 RM 45.50
Kobo

Jack Goldstein and the CalArts Mafia is the compelling story of artist Jack Goldstein and some of his classmates at CalArts, who in the early 1970s went to New York and led the transition from conceptualism to Pictures art, utilizing images from television and movies with which they had grown up. At the same time, they discovered an artworld increasingly consumed by the desire for fame, fortune and the perks of success. The book is anchored by Jack's narratives of the early days of CalArts and the last days of Chouinard; the New York art world of the 70s and 80s; the trials and tribulations of finding and maintaining success; his inter-personal relationships; and his disappearance from the art scene. Goldsteins's own recollections are complemented by the first person narratives of his friends, including John Baldessari, Troy Brauntuch, Rosetta Brooks, Jean Fisher, Robert Longo, Matt Mullican and James Welling. There are provocative portraits of many well known artworld personalities of the 80s, including Mary Boone, David Salle, and Helene Winer, all working in a time when "the competitive spirit was strong and often brutal, caring little about anything but oneself and making lots of money." :: "a biting, controversial, contradictory, hilarious, and riveting read.", Mariah Corrigan, caa. reviews: : "a first-rate contribution to the history of contemporary art", David Carrier, artUS

Art Book Nostalgia's Thread: Ten Poems on Norman Rockwell Paintings
RM 36.50 RM 45.50
Kobo

Accessible and engaging, the poems in Randall R. Freisinger's Nostalgia's Thread are provocative reconsiderations of the American experience as depicted in ten of Norman Rockwell's best known paintings. These poems remind us that visual art is never static, the beholder's eye never innocent. They bear witness to the fact that each cultural era must inevitably reinterpret its rich artistic inheritance within the context of its current collective experience. With unflinching honesty and deep compassion, these poems present a personal and collective past which is both comforting and disturbing, both "nostalgia's thread" and "the barbed wire / of memory."

Art Book Madonna of the Future
RM 9.10
Kobo

A city of myth and masterpieces, Florence, Italy, has been drawing travelers to its streets for hundreds of years. Its there we find Theobald, a passionate and ready speaker with the poor-bohemian aura of a great artist. Theobald was known to all of expatriate Florence, but more for his great soliloquies than his great works. Like many before him and many after, Theobald had come to Italy from America to be an artist, and he dreamed obsessively of creating his own great masterpiece, a Madonna. But, the city proves as likely to consume him as to inspire him as, surrounded by the great works of Cellini, Raphael, and Michelangelo, Theobalds resolve, his talent, and even his very self, seem to dissolve. Henry James wrote dozens of works-fiction and nonfiction-on art and artists. This early story remains one of his most endearing and is a great introduction both to Jamess work, and to the late-nineteenth century art world and art fiction. This electronic edition of Jamess classic text has been newly set, carefully edited, and fully optimized for e-book reading. As a bonus, it includes a mini, illustrated and annotated tour map of the Florence Henry James knew and loved.

Art Book Documents of the 1913 Armory Show: The Electrifying Moment of Modern Art's American Debut
RM 36.50 RM 45.50
Kobo

Collected here are the original publications from one of the most important exhibitions in the history of American art - the 1913 Armory Show. Opening on February 17, 1913, in New York and traveling to Chicago and Boston, the Armory Show was meant to be a simple exhibition of the new abstract and cubist art coming out of Europe. What it ultimately became was a sprawling showcase of some of the most ground-breaking (and many said subversive) art America had ever seen. Sensational to crowds, controversial among critics, and inspirational for artists, the Armory Show radically changed the face of art in America. Here you'll find excerpts from Paul Gauguin's provocative Tahitian journal, Élie Faure's enthralling essay on Cézanne, a range of impassioned views both for and against the new art, and president Theodore Roosevelt's famous essay, "A Layman's Views of an Art Exhibition". Long out of print, these writings (which were first published in pamphlets and sold at the exhibition itself) reintroduce readers to artists and ideas as powerful today as they were nearly a century ago.

Art Book Letters on Landscape Photography
RM 9.10
Kobo

Working at the end of the nineteenth century, photographer Henry Peach Robinson was best known for his zealous, and highly adept, use of combination printing - creating a single image from multiple negatives. He was also an accomplished writer and this short book from 1888 remains one of his most endearing. In practical instruction and personal anecdote, it extols his unyielding belief that capturing the natural beauty of the landscape required the helping hand of props, costumed models, and a spare negative or two. Popular upon its original publication, in today's era of easy, continuous and nearly limitless digital manipulation, this century-old text resonates again. "Henry Peach Robinson was perhaps the most influential voice in nineteenth century photography. [his] writings stand as the first complete photographic art theory in the English language" (Robert A. Sobieszek, photography curator and scholar). This expanded, classic edition has been newly set, carefully edited, and fully optimized for e-book reading. Along with the main text, it includes a complete listing of Henry Peach Robinson's published books; art and museum suggestions to see Robinson's work; and an extended essay on the author.

Art Book Thoughts on Landscape: Collected Writings and Interviews
RM 36.50 RM 45.50
Kobo

Frank Gohlke has been a leading figure in American landscape photography for over thirty years. He has photographed grain silos in Minnesota, the aftermath of a tornado in Texas, the destruction and rebirth of the land after the Mount St. Helens eruption in Washington, and a river's quiet course in Massachusetts. His is a career of deep, unbroken contemplation of the enduring landscape and of our place within it. And for nearly as long as Gohlke has been photographing the landscape, he has been writing about it. In the spirit of Henri Cartier-Bresson's seminal book, "The Mind's Eye", and Robert Adams's "Beauty in Photography", Gohlke's writings on photography span from the philosophical to the personal. In interviews, essays, artist statements, and lectures, Gohlke focuses both on his own work and life, and on the works and lives of the photographers around him. Woven throughout is his affection for and loyalty to the landscape around him, and his uncanny ability to convey the richness of his experience to readers-in words just as in images.

Art Book Beauty is Convulsive: The Passion of Frida Kahlo
RM 36.50 RM 45.50
Kobo

Beauty is Convulsive is a biographical meditation on one of the twentieth century's most compelling and famous artists, Frida Kahlo (1907-1954). At the age of nineteen, Kahlo's life was transformed when the bus in which she was riding was hit by a trolley car. Pierced by a steel handrail and broken in many places, she entered a long period of convalescence during which she began to paint self-portraits. In 1928, at twenty-one, she joined the Communist Party and came to know Diego Rivera. The forty-one-year-old Rivera, Mexico's most famous painter, was impressed by the force of Kahlo's personality and by the authenticity of her art, and the two soon married. Though they were devoted to each other, intermittent affairs on both sides, Frida's grief over her inability to bear a child, and her frequent illnesses made the marriage tumultuous. This prose poem is typical Maso-vigorous, daring, always original. She brings together parts of Kahlo's biography, her letters, medical documents, and her diaries with language that is often as erotic and colorful as Kahlo's paintings. :: "Maso's precise and poetic prose. brims with emotion, imagination, intelligence, and beauty," Review of Contemporary Fiction: : ". a supple, discerning, and haunting prose poem, a biographical meditation that elegantly charts Kahlos epic resiliency, artistic daring, unrelenting suffering, soul-saving 'sense of the ridiculous,' and glorious defiance. Masos spare yet lyric tribute, a genuine communion, is a welcome antidote to the mawkishness and sensationalism that is starting to blur our appreciation for Kahlos pioneering art and incandescent spirit," Booklist

Art Book Cashing in on Culture: Betraying the Trust at the Rose Art Museum
RM 36.50 RM 45.50
Kobo

Facing a lengthening recession and massive budget shortfalls, what does a university do with its 350 million art museum? - "Cashing in on Culture", by Francine Koslow Miller, is a firsthand account of Brandeis Universitys attempt to close down its famed Rose Art Museum and sell off major pieces from the museums collection to close budget gaps in other areas of the university. The ill-considered plan caused an uproar in the art community and on campus when it was first proposed in January 2009. The controversy continued for two and a half years, until ongoing protests and a lawsuit by a number of the Roses overseers brought a stop to the universitys plan-at least for the time being-and reaffirmed the Rose as one of the nations top university art museums. Miller is an alumnus of Brandeis and a respected Boston-area art critic and journalist. Tracking this story was a labor of love and the resulting book tells a very local story with very national implications.

Art Book Venus
RM 20.50 RM 22.80
Kobo

Venus is the renowned sculptor, Auguste Rodin's brief, uniquely passionate ode to one of his medium's great masterpieces, the Venus de Milo, now in the Louvre Museum in Paris. As poet Ranier Maria Rilke spoke of Rodin's vision: "The galleries of the Louvre revealed to the young artist radiant visions of the antique world; visions of southern skies, and of the sea, and far beyond rose heavy stone monuments, reaching over from immemorial civilizations into times not yet existent." First published in 1912, this edition of Venus features the work's original English translation by Dorothy Dudley, and for the first time, Tina Kover's new translation of Rodin's lesser-known text, The Dance of Shiva. Written in 1913, The Dance of Shiva considers a bronze statue of the Hindu god through a carefully-crafted set of written impressions. Though looser in form than Venus, this short work lacks none of the unique passion and melodrama of Rodin's written voice: "What endowment; what pride of body! Today it is perpetual beauty in bronze. The imperceptible movement of the light. One can sense the immobile muscles, bathed in luminescence, ready to erupt into action."

Art Book Corot
RM 9.10
Kobo

A charming picture of a famous artist. This short biographical sketch on nineteenth-century French landscape painter Camille Corot was written by Elbert Hubbard as part of his endearing series, Little Journeys to the Homes of Eminent Artists (1902). And a wonderful 'little journey' it is. Only a few brief pages, but brimming with entertaining anecdote, thoughtful contemplation and rewarding insight. Perhaps most notable is the inclusion of a passionate, personality-filled letter Corot wrote to his friend Graham. An excerpt: "And if it should, I would be sorry, for nothing ever did stand still, except a bad picture. A good picture is full of motion. Clouds that stand still are not clouds-motion, activity, life, yes, life is what we want-life! Bam! A peasant comes out of the cottage and is coming to the meadow. Ding, ding, ding! There comes a flock of sheep led by a bell wether. Wait there a minute, please, sheepy-sheepy, and a great man will paint you. All right then, dont wait. I didnt want to paint you anyway." - A perfect introduction to those new to the artist and his work, and a pleasant diversion for those already more familiar, this expanded, classic edition has been newly set, carefully edited, and fully optimized for e-book reading. Along with the main text, it includes select images of Corot's paintings from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Art Book Picasso's War
RM 36.50 RM 45.50
Kobo

The destruction of a town, and the creation of a masterpiece-On April 26, 1937, in the late afternoon of a busy market day in the Basque town of Gernika in northern Spain, the German Luftwaffe began the relentless bombing and machine-gunning of buildings and villagers at the request of General Francisco Franco and his rebel forces. Three-and-a-half hours later, the village lay in ruins, its population decimated. This act of terror and unspeakable cruelty-the first intentional, large-scale attack against a nonmilitary target in modern warfare-outraged the world and one man in particular, Pablo Picasso. The renowned artist, an expatriate living in Paris, reacted immediately to the devastation in his homeland by creating the canvas that would become widely considered one of the greatest artworks of the twentieth century-Guernica. Weaving themes of conflict and redemption, of the horrors of war and of the power of art to transfigure tragedy, Russell Martin follows this monumental work from its fevered creation through its journey across decades and continents-from Europe to America and, finally and triumphantly, to democratic Spain. Full of historical sweep and deeply moving drama, Picassos War delivers an unforgettable portrait of a painting, the dramatic events that led to its creation, and its ongoing power today.

Art Book Museum Legs

If you've ever considered going to an art museum and then thought, errr, I'll do something else. If you've ever arrived at one and left a little glazed and confused. If you've ever thought, I might read an eight-page article about art museums but not a whole book. Then this is your story. Museum Legs - taken from a term for art fatigue - starts with a question: Why do people get bored and tired in art museums and why does that matter? "Amy Whitaker's sparkling meditations on the museum are both delightful and pressing" (Jonathan Zittrain, professor and author), and in this incisive collection of essays, she shows that museums matter for reasons that have less to do with art as we know it and more to do with business, politics, and the age-old question of how to live. Maybe the great age of museums will yet be a great age of creativity and hopeful possibility in everyday life. - "It is so extraordinary to ask these simple questions and to have the courage to look for answers. Museums would be a better place to visit if they questioned themselves as Whitaker does." (Alfredo Jaar, artist)

Upon Whistler's death some twenty years later, Menpes reemerged to put to print this first-hand portrait of his former master; capturing Whistler's working methods, his daily routines, his interests, and his eccentricities. As the International Studio worte on the book's original publication: "In reading this remarkable book, with its exaggerations and distortions of fact, its cutting satire, but withal its under-current of real affection for and appreciation of, its subject, it is impossible to help wondering what the effect of it would have been upon Whistler himself had it been published during his lifetime."

Working at a pivotal time in art history, artist Marsden Hartley was in the center of it all.

From Impressionism and American Art, to the birth of Modernism and the spread of photography, Hartley offers us a familiarity with and an understanding of twentieth century art from its very foundations. :: The papers in this book are not intended in any way to be professional treatises. They must be viewed in the light of entertaining conversations. Their possible value lies in their directness of impulse, and not in weight of argument. I could not wish to go into the qualities of art more deeply. A reaction, to be pleasant, must be simple. This is the apology I have to offer: Reactions, then, through direct impulse, and not essays by means of stiffened analysis. Marsden Hartley

The company grew and became known as America’s premier source for books on art, photography, design and visual culture. For the past two decades, D.A.P. has been the exclusive distributor for some of the most stunning seminal publications. Other than being a distributor, D.A.P. also has a small in-house publishing program as well as partners with other publishers for amazing art books.
