(H/B) MARK ROTHKO
FROM THE INSIDE OUT
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0662

"The journey to understand the painting is also the journey to understand Rothko, because the work is so thoroughly suffused with the man." Mark Rothko (1903-1970), world-renowned icon of Abstract Expressionism, is rediscovered in this wholly original examination of his art and life written by his son. Synthesizing rigorous critique with personal anecdotes, Christopher, the younger of the artist's two children, offers a unique perspective on this modern master. Christopher Rothko draws on an intimate knowledge of the artworks to present ...

Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0714

Revealing the power of color as physical medium, a key to interpretation, and a mediator of social and political change This expansive study of color illuminates the substance, context, and meaning of five centuries of European painting.

(H/B) NO MORE MASTERPIECES
MODERN ART AFTER ARTAUD
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0736

Proposing an original reassessment of art from the 1950s to the 1970s, No More Masterpieces reveals how artistic practice in postwar America was profoundly shaped by the work of the rebellious French poet and dramatist Antonin Artaud (1896?1948). A generation of artists mobilized Artaud’s countercultural ideas to imagine new forms of representation and to redefine the relationship between artist and audience. The book shows how Artaud’s radical writings inspired the experimental theatrical work of John Cage, Rachel Rosenthal, and Allan Kap...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0552

How did the city-state of Athens defeat the invaders from Persia, the first world empire, on the plain of Marathon in 490 BCE? Clever scholars skeptical of our earliest surviving source, Herodotus, have produced one ingenious theory after another. In this stimulating new book, bound to provoke controversy, Peter Krentz argues that Herodotus was right after all. Beginning his analysis with the Athenians' first formal contact with the Persians in 507 BCE, Krentz weaves together ancient evidence with travelers' descriptions, archaeological d...

The untold story about how the internet became social, and why this matters for its future. Fifteen years before the commercialization of the internet, millions of amateurs across North America created more than 100,000 small-scale computer networks.

From ham radio operators to HIV/AIDS activists, these modem enthusiasts developed novel forms of c...

(H/B) WHY PHOTOGRAPHY MATTERS AS ART AS NEVER BEFORE
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0464

From the late 1970s onward, serious art photography began to be made at large scale and for the wall. Michael Fried argues that this immediately compelled photographers to grapple with issues centering on the relationship between the photograph and the viewer standing before it that until then had been the province only of painting. Fried further demonstrates that certain philosophically deep problems - associated with notions of theatricality, literalness, and objecthood, and touching on the role of original intention in artistic producti...

(P/B) ARTS AND THE CREATION OF MIND
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0369

Although the arts are often thought to be closer to the rim of education than to its core, they are, surprisingly, critically important means for developing complex and subtle aspects of the mind, argues Elliot Eisner in this engrossing book. In it he describes how various forms of thinking are evoked, developed, and refined through the arts. These forms of thinking, Eisner argues, are more helpful in dealing with the ambiguities and uncertainties of daily life than are the formally structured curricula that are employed today in schools. ...
