Jewish Artists in New York: The Holocaust Years, Baigell, Matthew
12 Baigell, Matthew
Jewish Artists in New York: The Holocaust Years
New Brunswick, NJ Rutgers University Press 2002 0813531241 / 9780813531243 1st Hardcover Fine Fine Collectible 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Cloth, gilt, xv, 186 pp., illus., bib. notes, index; 24 cm. Tight, clean copy. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. "Exploring the influence of the local cultural scene as well as events taking place in Europe, Matthew Baigell reexamines the work of Jewish artists inspired to respond to the murders of their fellow Jews during World War II. Because there were only a few authentic instances of visual documentation of events until the war's later stages, artists both used traditional imagery and invented new kinds of imagery to record their responses to the catastrophe taking place. Unfortunately, New York City's Jewish intelligentsia seemed to offer little support, and art critics such as Clement Greenberg largely avoided the issue. Jewish artists were left to cope with the events of the war in isolation, without a collective visual memory to deal with the traumas presented by news reports. Artists featured include Marc Chagall, Jacques Lipchitz, Barnett Newman, Abraham Rattner, Mark Rothko, and Max Weber. / Matthew Baigell is a professor of art history at Rutgers University, New Brunswick. He has written seventeen books. His latest work is Peeling Potatoes, Painting Pictures: Women Artists in Post-Soviet Russia, Estonia, and Latvia (coauthored with Renee Baigell). He is also the coeditor (with Milly Heyd) of Complex Identities: Jewish Consciousness and Modern Art (both titles from Rutgers University Press)." - Publisher.

Made in California: Art, Image, and Identity, 1900-2000, Barron, Stephanie, and Bernstein, Sheri, and Fort, Ilene Susan
17 Barron, Stephanie, and Bernstein, Sheri, and Fort, Ilene Susan
Made in California: Art, Image, and Identity, 1900-2000
Los Angeles and Berkeley Los Angeles County Museum of Art; University of California Press 2000 0520227654 / 9780520227651 Paperback Very Good Exhibition Catalogue 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
351 pp., illus. (some col.), biblio., index; 32 cm. Near fine. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Superficial dampstain at the end (slight ripple; pages don't stick). OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "This opulent and expansive volume, published in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's monumental exhibition Made in California: Art, Image, and Identity,1900-2000, charts the dynamic relationship between the arts and popular conceptions of California. Displaying a dazzling array of fine art and material culture, Made in California challenges us to reexamine the ways in which the state has been portrayed and imagined. Unusually inclusive, visually intriguing, and beautifully produced, this volume is a delight throughout--both in image and in text--and will appeal to anyone who has lived in, visited, or imagined California. Drawn from the exhibition, which gathers more than 1,200 artworks and pieces of ephemera from many public and private collections, Made in California is an image-driven look at the past century, featuring more than 400 works in a range of media, from painting, sculpture, prints, drawings, and photographs to furniture, fashion, and film. The book also includes more than 150 cultural artifacts such as tourist brochures, posters, labor union tracts, personal letters, and government reports that convey the richness and complexity of twentieth-century California. Arranged provocatively by theme, these objects take us on a visual tour of a state that was promoted as a bountiful paradise early in the century as a glamour capital by Hollywood in the 1920s and 1930s as a suburban utopia in the late '40s and '50s as a haven for counterculture in the '60s and '70s, and as a multicultural frontier in the '80s and '90s. The book's exploration of how these themes were reflected and contested in California's visual culture deepens our understanding of the state's artistic traditions as well as its fascinating history. The volume is divided into five twenty-year sections, each including a narrative essay discussing the history of that era and highlighting topics particularly relevant to its visual culture. Two overarching themes emerge that have been crucial for how we imagine and understand California: first, the landscape, including both the natural and built environment, and second, the multifaceted relationships California has had with Latin America and Asia. Geographer Michael Dear has contributed a sweeping overview of the social history of California that examines the vibrant and sometimes turbulent conditions out of which the culture emerged. Essayist Richard Rodriguez closes the volume with a uniquely personal meditation on the Golden State. / Stephanie Barron is Senior Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art and Vice President of Education and Public Programs at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Sheri Bernstein is Exhibition Associate. Ilene Susan Fort is Curator of American Art. Howard N. Fox is Curator of Contemporary Art. Michael Dear is Director of the University of Southern California's Southern California Studies Center and author most recently of The Postmodern Urban Condition (2000). Richard Rodriguez is author of Days of Obligation (1992) and Hunger of Memory (1982), and is a frequent contributor to Harper's,The New York Times, and The News Hour on PBS." - Publisher.
