A handsome, affordable introduction to the modernist polymath who charted the rhythms of color across textiles, illustration, painting and more.
Sonia Delaunay was a true pioneer of modernist abstraction; breaking with the figurative vocabulary that subordinated color to subject matter, she placed dynamic color interaction at the core of her vision, whether expressed through painting, book illustration or costume and textile design. Drawing inspiration from both traditional Russian crafts and the modern frenetic metropolis, Delaunay's work reflects the drastic changes ushered in by industrialization. Through her polyvalent practice, Delaunay helped construct the new modern woman that she herself embodied: equal parts avant-gardist, creative entrepreneur and businesswoman.
This richly illustrated catalog showcases the range of Delaunay's work as it unfolded over 60 years, from abstract paintings and works on paper to textile design, garments, fashion photography, books and carpets--even a brightly colored sports car.
Born in Odessa, Ukraine, Sonia Delaunay (1885-1979) migrated to Paris in 1906 and became a key figure in the city's avant-garde scene. During these early years, her paintings underwent a formal shift influenced by the vivid colors of Fauvism. She soon met her husband, fellow artist Robert Delaunay, and the couple pioneered a fusion of Cubism and Neo-Impressionism that they termed Simultanism, which denotes abstract painting that uses color in a manner comparable to the use of sound and rhythm in music. In 1964, Delaunay became the first living woman artist to have a retrospective at the Louvre.
Malgré une carrière prolifique sur plus de 5 décennies, la photographe Eveyn Hofer peu reconnue de son vivant et qualifiée par le critique d'art Hilton Kramer de "photographe inconnue la plus célèbre d'Amérique". Au cours des années 1960, elle a consacré une série de livres de photo aux villes européennes et américaines, dont Florence, Londres, New York, Washington et Dublin ainsi qu'un livre axé sur l'Espagne. Composé de plus de 100 photographies, Eyes on the City accompagne une grande rétrospective de l'artiste aux États-Unis et s'organise autour de ses livres photo. Entre paysages, vues architecturales et portraits, ces séries restituent le caractère de chacune des ces capitales pendant leurs transformations structurelles, sociales et économiques après la Seconde Guerre mondiale.
Previously unseen journals, letters, sketches and more from the vast personal archive of Leonard Cohen.
Leonard Cohen is renowned the world over for his meditations on beauty, death, loss and the human heart. The objects, papers and artifacts from Cohen's personal archive provide fresh insight into the artist's creative pursuits and the arc of his career over six decades. Aware from an early age that he was destined to make a mark on this world, Cohen preserved an expansive collection of letters, journals, manuscripts, sketches and records. Together, they provide a rich visual road map to his evolution as a poet and songwriter.
The first publication to present the holdings of the Leonard Cohen Family Trust, Everybody Knows: Inside His Archive immerses readers in the many facets of Cohen's creative life. Images of rare concert footage and archival materials, including musical instruments, notebooks, lyrics and letters, are featured alongside photographs, drawings and digital art created by Cohen across several decades.
Leonard Cohen (1934-2016) was a Canadian poet, singer-songwriter and novelist. Born and educated in Montreal, Cohen began his artistic career in 1956 with the publication of his first book of poetry, Let Us Compare Mythologies. Over his long and productive career, he published two novels, The Favourite Game (1963) and Beautiful Losers (1966), and numerous books of poetry, including Stranger Music: Selected Poems and Songs (1993). He recorded more than a dozen music albums, and numerous tribute albums have celebrated his songs in various languages. He died in Los Angeles in 2016 and was secretly buried in Montreal a few days later.
Classic and previously unseen photographs and archival materials by a genius of staged photography, with a new essay by Chris Kraus.
This elegant volume presents more than 40 vintage photographs by the pioneering American photographer Francesca Woodman (1958-81), many of which have never before been seen. These photographs span the creative arc of the artist's life, focusing on the varied thought processes, interests and influences that inspired her work.
Clustered thematically, Francesca Woodman: Alternate Stories highlights previously unexplored relational contexts, drawing deeply on Woodman's formative years in Providence, Rhode Island, and Italy, and featuring previously unpublished photographs and archival materials.
In the newly commissioned essay "Impure Alchemy," critic and novelist Chris Kraus explores Francesca Woodman's life via her work, drawing upon her journals and letters as primary source materials, and exploring the technical means and literary strategies that animate Woodman's works.
Francesca Woodman: Alternate Stories portrays the artist's lasting impact on generations of artists, and offers a compendium of images, which, as Kraus writes, still "inspire new mysteries and questions."

The landmark survey of Judd's iconic spaces, featuring new drawing details, archival materials and more.
This second expanded edition presents an unprecedented visual survey of the living and working spaces of the artist Donald Judd in New York and Texas. Filled with newly commissioned and archival photographs alongside five essays by the artist, this book provides an opportunity to explore Judd's personal spaces, which are a crucial part of this revered artist's oeuvre.
From a 19th-century cast-iron building in Manhattan to an extensive ranch in the mountains of western Texas, this book details the interiors, exteriors and land surrounding the buildings that comprise Judd's extant living and working spaces. Readers will discover how Judd developed the concept of permanent installation at Spring Street in New York City, with artworks, furniture and decorative objects striking a balance between the building's historical qualities and his own architectural innovations. His buildings in Marfa, Texas, demonstrate how Judd reiterated his concept of integrative living on a larger scale, extending to the reaches of the Chinati Mountains at Ayala de Chinati, his 33,000-acre ranch south of the town. Each of the spaces was thoroughly considered by Judd with resolute attention to function and design. From furniture to utilitarian structures that Judd designed himself, these residences reflect Judd's consistent aesthetic. His spaces underscore his deep interest in the preservation of buildings and his deliberate interventions within existing architecture.
Donald Judd (1928-94) was born in Excelsior Springs, Missouri. After serving in the United States Army, he attended the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia; the Art Students League of New York; and Columbia University in New York, where he completed a BS in philosophy in 1953. Judd was a prolific critic for magazines including Arts, Art International and Art News; he continued to write throughout his career, addressing the relationship of art practice to architecture, design, political action and lived experience in letters and published essays. As an artist, he started out as a painter before turning to three-dimensional work. His radical work and thinking helped shape the art of the late 20th century and continues to influence artists, architects and designers.

McQueen's iconic fashion juxtaposed with historic textiles and works of art, revealing the designer's dynamic approach to storytelling.
One of the most significant contributors to fashion between 1990 and 2010, British designer Lee Alexander McQueen was both a conceptual and a technical virtuoso. His critically acclaimed collections synthesized his unique training in Savile Row tailoring, theatrical design and haute couture with a remarkable breadth and depth of encyclopedic and autobiographical references spanning time, geography, mediums and technology. McQueen's singular viewpoint produced exquisitely constructed, thought-provoking, often subversive or allegorical fashion.
Taking a reflective look at McQueen's artful design process, this book documents the designer's diverse sources of inspiration by displaying McQueen's imaginative fashions alongside related artworks. McQueen's encyclopedic references range from ancient Greece and Rome to Tibetan silk brocade patterns, 17th-century Dutch painting, the prints of Goya and the films of Stanley Kubrick. In each of these cases and beyond, examples of McQueen's imaginative and extraordinary work are displayed alongside artworks from LACMA's permanent collection. Spanning art from a multitude of mediums, eras and cultures, this publication provides a new and innovative assessment of McQueen's work and highlights his mindful approach to storytelling and construction through fashion.
Lee Alexander McQueen (1969-2010) was one of the most important fashion designers at the turn of the 21st century. In 2011, following his death, the Costume Institute in New York organized an enormously successful retrospective of his work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Illustrés avec de très belles photographies, des plans, des dessins et des maquettes, éclairés d'essais et d'interviews, dix chapitres retracent la totalité de l'oeuvre de Turrell, dont le gigantesque Roden Crater, cratère de volcan en Arizona, sur lequel il travaille depuis vingt ans.

An ingenious and collectible book-as-poster documenting Prince's half-century of image appropriation.
For aficionados of Richard Prince (born 1949) and of the possibilities of the book form, this unique exhibition catalog is an exclusive three-in-one kind of publication. Designed in the dimensions of a 12 x 12-inch LP record and housed in a plastic sleeve, when unfolded it transforms into a two-sided (one English, one Danish) poster with a richly illustrated collage of works by Prince from across his career (including his famous "rephotographs"), plus two in-depth texts on Prince's oeuvre by the curators Nancy Spector and Anders Kold.

His visual world, encapsulated in this innovatively designed volume, offers a remarkably consistent portrait of late 20th-century America.
Midcentury modernism meets Japanese design in three revolutionary American buildings--the products of a unique, sustained, cross-cultural collaboration.
In 1953, Japanese architect Junzo Yoshimura designed a now-classic Japanese house and garden that he called Shofuso. It was built in Nagoya, Japan, and shipped to New York in 1954, where it was exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art and then relocated to Philadelphia's Fairmount Park. The curators of MoMA's House in the Garden exhibition highlighted its synthesis of historic Japanese architecture with modern architecture: the clarity of the house's post and beam structure, its flexibility of use and the close relationship of indoor and outdoor spaces.
This extensively illustrated volume centers on Yoshimura's design for Shofuso and two allied sites located in New Hope, Bucks County, Pennsylvania: Raymond Farm (1939-41), a live-work residence built by Antonin and Noémi Raymond within the fabric of an existing 18th-century Quaker farmhouse; and Nakashima Studios, a complex of structures designed by George Nakashima over three decades (1947-77) to serve his furniture-making business and as his family's home. Each site, in its own way, is the embodiment of the personal relationships and cross-cultural collaborations among this group of architects and designers.
The Raymonds, along with Yoshimura, Nakashima and others, came to understand Japan's changing environment through the act of building, through collaboration and travel. Together, they extended these lessons into the furniture and furnishings of modern living in both Japan and the United States.
This volume documents an exhibition of objects and ephemera mounted at Shofuso. New York-based architectural photographer Elizabeth Felicella captures each site in a portfolio of newly commissioned images. Essays by Ken Tadashi Oshima and William Whitaker, illustrated with historical photographs, family snapshots and architectural drawings, further elucidate this important chapter in the history of modern architecture and design.
Connu pour repousser les limites du bon goût, John Waters (né en 1946) a créé un style de films bien à lui, basé sur un humour qui divise, qui a fait de lui l'un des auteurs les plus révérés et subversifs dans le cinéma indépendant américain. Mettant en vedette des muses non conventionnelles, des hommages à sa ville natale de Baltimore et des thèmes du fétiche, de l'obsession et de la culture des célébrités, ses films irrévérencieux, dont Pink Flamingos (1972), Female Trouble (1974), Desperate Living (1977), Hairspray (1988), Serial Mom (1994) et A Dirty Shame (2004)... sont des comédies grotesques qui s'inspirent avec amour de William Castle, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Russ Meyer, Andy Warhol et Pier Paolo Pasolini. Ce livre accompagne une grande exposition à l'Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Le livre présente des costumes, des accessoires, des manuscrits, des dessins de travail, de la correspondance, des objets promotionnels, des photographies de tournage et d'autres documents originaux. Mettant en lumière plusieurs de ses collaborateurs de longue date, il présente également une nouvelle interview avec John Waters et des textes des commissaires Jenny He et Dara Jaffe, l'historienne du cinéma Jeanine Basinger, critique de cinéma et théoricienne culturelle B. Ruby Rich, et l'auteur-auteur-producteur David Simon.
Kehinde Wiley : An Archaeology of Silence présente un nouvel ensemble de peintures et de sculptures de l'artiste américain Kehinde Wiley confrontant l'héritage du colonialisme à travers le langage visuel de l'artiste.

This first ever book on the Bay Area Beat artist reveals a unique drawing style that dovetails Cocteau with Japanese and Renaissance printmaking.
"Rick Barton should have been a San Francisco legend," declared author and artist Etel Adnan in a 1998 essay. Working primarily in pen or brush and ink in a kaleidoscopic linear style, Barton (1928-92), who was born and raised in New York and settled in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1950s, ceaselessly recorded the world around him, whether the enclosed space of his room, the cafes in which he spent his days, his lovers and friends, or the ornate churches and botanical subjects that seem to have held particular fascination for him. Flourishing in San Francisco's gay and Beat subcultures of the 1950s and '60s, Barton accrued a group of disciples who were drawn to his singular style, which synthesized sources as disparate as Renaissance and Japanese woodblock prints and the delicate line drawings of Jean Cocteau.
Bringing together more than 60 drawings, two accordion-folded sketchbooks, and printed portfolios and books, Writing a Chrysanthemum: The Drawings of Rick Barton presents for the first time the work of this unique artist who was a significant, and until now unheralded, figure of the Beat era. Rachel Federman, the curator of the exhibition at the Morgan Library & Museum, has written a deeply researched essay on the artist and his work. An excerpt of Adnan's essay--the first published account of Barton--is reprinted in the catalog.
Accompanying the artist's first major US overview in 15 years, this volume celebrates over four decades of Wall's uncanny everyday dramas.
Vancouver-based artist Jeff Wall (born 1946) has been making arresting, conceptually and politically complex pictures for over four decades. Using large-format photography that embraces both the deliberateness of painting and the immediacy of the moving image, he is known for immersive, sharply detailed scenes featuring figures enacting everyday dramas. Departing from the convention of street photography and its aspirations of authenticity, Wall instead favors the artificial and the cinematic; he meticulously plans and constructs his pictures, scouting locations, casting actors as subjects and organizing the shoots with the rigor of a movie production.
Jeff Wall accompanies the artist's monographic exhibition at Glenstone, a survey of works made between 1978 and 2018. It is also his largest exhibition in the US since his widely acclaimed 2007 midcareer survey at the Museum of Modern Art. Comprising nearly 30 artworks, the catalog appraises the full range of the artist's pioneering oeuvre, from early pictures displayed in backlit lightboxes and black-and-white silver gelatin prints to more recent large-scale inkjet color prints. Jeff Wall also features an introduction by Glenstone cofounder and director Emily Wei Rales and an essay by art critic and poet Barry Schwabsky.
A concise and affordable overview of Dumas' existential portraiture, with previously unseen works.
An engrossing compendium of more than 100 works from 1984 to the present day by South African painter Marlene Dumas (born 1954), Open-End offers a selective overview of her career to date, and a first look at pieces created over the course of the last few years.
Of her work, Dumas says: "I am an artist who uses second-hand images and first-hand emotions." While in the early years of her career she was known for her collages and accompanying texts, today Dumas works chiefly in oil on canvas and ink on paper. The majority of her production is made up of portraits of people in states of suffering, ecstasy, fear and despair. A crucial moment in the development of Dumas' style came with her use of images from newspapers and magazines, stills from films and Polaroids.
Open-End brings together pieces from international museums and private collections to provide new insight into Dumas' work and methods.
How Picasso forged an expansive, experimental and personal approach to a traditional genre.
Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) was committed to depicting landscapes throughout his entire life. From his earliest days in art school until the year before his death, landscape remained the prime genre through which he mediated his perception of the world and which shaped his own creative evolution. Yet within Picasso's vast oeuvre, landscapes have received the least scholarly attention. Landscape would serve as a catalyst for his formal experimentation, including early Cubism; as a field in which to investigate urban modernity; as an interface between humanity and nature; as a ground for direct sculptural intervention; as a space of personal withdrawal; as an inviting terrain for elegiac scenes; and as a territory of resistance and flight.
Landscapes offer the clearest lens for understanding Picasso's attentiveness to his cultural milieu as well as to his ongoing engagement with art-historical traditions. Picasso Landscapes: Out of Bounds celebrates the depth of his exploration of landscape subjects along with his expansive approach to this traditional genre.

Ringgold's most formative and influential political works are gathered in this beautifully designed clothbound volume.
Alongside reproductions of key works made between 1967 and 1981, Faith Ringgold: Politics / Power provides an overview of Ringgold's seminal artistic and activist work, and its historical context during these years, including accounts by the artist herself.
During the 1960s and 1970s, Ringgold, a dedicated and impassioned civil rights advocate, established her voice as a feminist and within the Black Arts Movement. Her influential work expressed her in-depth knowledge of art history and contemporary art, as well as her activism. Spanning mediums such as painting, cut paper works, posters, collage and textile art, the works presented in this publication foreground the artist's explicitly political pieces, for which she deployed new material and formal processes, and developed a radical aesthetics and vocabulary.
Organized chronologically, the book allows readers to retrace the artist's foundational creative approaches to contemporaneous social, political and artistic questions. It includes illustrations of individual artworks together with previously unpublished work and archival materials.
Faith Ringgold (born 1930) is a painter, mixed-media sculptor, performance artist, teacher and writer best known for her narrative quilts. In 2020, the New York Times described her as an artist "who has confronted race relations in this country from every angle, led protests to diversify museums decades ago, and even went to jail for an exhibition she organized." Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Brooklyn Museum and the Baltimore Museum of Art, among others. Ringgold lives and works in Englewood, New Jersey.
