The Cabaret, Appignanesi, Lisa
1 Appignanesi, Lisa
The Cabaret
New Haven, CT Yale University Press 2004 0300105800 / 9780300105803 Revised and Expanded Edition Hardcover Fine Fine Collectible 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
Cloth, gilt, ix, 265 pp., illus. (some col.), ports., biblio., index; 25 cm. AS NEW. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. "This captivating book presents a uniquely comprehensive cultural history of cabaret, where the most radical of artists, poets, writers, musicians, and theater directors have gathered since 1881. Lisa Appignanesi takes us to the original cabaret - the smoke-filled rooms of the Chat Noir in Paris that served as a meeting place for the avant-garde and a laboratory of subversion against the establishment. She then follows the journey of the cabaret across Europe and to the United States, tracing each development in cabaret history to the present day. This much revised and updated edition of Appignanesi's classic work is enriched with materials that have become more accessible in the post-Soviet era. It also features a variety of new illustrations from both East and West. The book provides a lively look at all aspects of cabaret, where art and entertainment join to mock and provoke, and where radical artistic, literary, and political ideas have found expression for more than 120 years. / Lisa Appignanesi is a writer and broadcaster. She is the author of many books, widely translated, including the acclaimed Freud's Women (with John Forrester), a portrait of Simone de Beauvoir, the highly praised memoir Losing the Dead, and the novel The Memory Man, as well as such best-selling thrillers as Sanctuary and The Dead of Winter. She has made and presented a variety of programs for radio and television in Great Britain and France. She is a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres." - Publisher.

Debating American Modernism: Stieglitz, Duchamp, and the New York Avant-Garde, Balken, Debra Bricker; Bochner, Jay (Essay by)
5 Balken, Debra Bricker; Bochner, Jay (Essay by)
Debating American Modernism: Stieglitz, Duchamp, and the New York Avant-Garde
New York American Federation of Arts 2003 1891024493 / 9781891024498 1st Hardcover Very Good Fine Exhibition Catalogue 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
Pictorial boards, 189 pp., illus. (chiefly col.), biblio., index; 23 cm. Exhibition itinerary: Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, Santa Fe, New Mexico, January 24-April 20, 2003; Des Moines Art Center, Des Moines, Iowa, May 9-August 1, 2003; Terra Museum of American Art, Chicago, Illinois, August 29 -November 30, 2003. Near fine. Tight, clean copy. One corner lightly bumped, else fine. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. "When Duchamp moved from Paris to New York in 1915, he was disappointed by the predominantly nature-based abstraction he observed, publicly proclaiming that American artists were too dependent on outmoded European traditions and had overlooked their greatest subjects--the skyscraper and the machine. Meanwhile, the artists associated with Alfred Stieglitz and his '291' gallery remained loyal to their belief in nature as a source of ongoing renewal for visual culture, and emphasized the crucial role that intuition and spirituality played in their creation of art. The crossfire between Duchamp and Stieglitz and their respective circles defined a critical moment in early twentieth-century American art. Debating Modernism includes reproductions of work by artists from both camps, from Charles Demuth, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Paul Strand to Man Ray, Francis Picabia, and Marsden Hartley. An essay by curator Debra Bricker Balken traces the threads of the debate through the 1910s and 20s, and also addresses the appearance of sexualized imagery in nearly all of these artists' works, a phenomenon that ironically unifies the two seemingly opposed camps. Jay Bochner's essay focuses on the artists' respective violations of American expectations about art." - Publisher.

John Covert Rediscovered
University Park, PA Palmer Museum of Art, Pennsylvania State University 2003 0911209581 / 9780911209587 1st Paperback Very Good Exhibition Catalogue 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
80 pp., illus. (some col.), biblio.; 27 cm. Catalogue of an exhibition held at Palmer Museum of Art, Pennsylvania State University, Feb. 11-Apr. 20, 2003, the Demuth Foundation, Lancaster, Pa., August 1 to September 21, 2003, and Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gallery, Lebanon Valley College, August 28 to October 12, 2003. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Light shelfwear to wraps, age toning. "Although little known today, John R. Covert (1882-1960) played a pivotal role in the development of American modernism. He was a founder of the Society of Independent Artists, an active participant in the Societe Anonyme, and produced innovative paintings and collage-constructions that reflect his experiences of the renowned art collection of his cousin, Walter Arensberg. Yet, in 1923, Covert broke off his association with key modernists like Marcel Duchamp and Charles Demuth, closed his New York studio, and went to work as a salesman for the Vesuvius Crucible Company of Pittsburgh. Generally, the artist's story is thought to end there, but John Covert Rediscovered, published in conjunction with an exhibition of the same name organized by the Palmer Museum of Art, shows that Covert never abandoned his artistic endeavors even if he did spend the last decades of his life at the periphery of the art world. Drawing on Covert's daybooks (recently conserved at the Philadelphia Museum of Art) and art in the collection of the late Charles Covert Arensberg, John Covert Rediscovered not only establishes that Covert continued his artistic explorations long after his supposed retirement in 1923 but also introduces several hitherto lost works. No less surprising and significant is its revelation that Covert became a filmmaker and prolific photographer, working both within and against modernist ideas of the image. In his introduction, Leo G. Mazow presents a new view of Covert's multifaceted activities, including his exercises in secret writing and cryptography. John Covert Rediscovered also contains an essay by Michael R. Taylor that breaks new ground by tracing Covert's 'conversion' to modernism back to his life in Munich and Paris during the turbulent years leading up to World War I. All the art in the exhibition is reproduced in this publication, the value of which is further augmented by Leo Mazow's informative commentaries on each art work. / Leo G. Mazow is Curator of American Art and Affiliate Assistant Professor of Art History at The Pennsylvania State University." - Publisher.
