Gendering Landscape Art, Adams, Steven, and Robins, Anna Gruetzner (Joint Editors)
1 Adams, Steven, and Robins, Anna Gruetzner (Joint Editors)
Gendering Landscape Art
New Brunswick, NJ Rutgers University Press; Issues in Art History Ser. 2001 0813529751 / 9780813529752 Paperback Fine 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
x, 230 pp., illus., biblio., index; 25 cm. Tight, clean copy. Essays exploring artists' use of gender to understand and interpret the landscape. "While gender has been the subject of extensive critical inquiry, the debate has focused primarily on the human, particularly the female, body. The spaces bodies occupy and the ways in which those spaces are depicted in landscape art has not, however, been subject to investigation. This book is the first sustained attempt to fill this gap in art history. Using approaches informed by cultural studies, feminism, and psychoanalysis, this collection of essays charts the ways in which artists from the late eighteenth century to the present have used notions of femininity and masculinity to understand and interpret the landscape and how it is represented. Contributors offer fresh insights into gender in the work of well-known artists such as Monet and Cézanne. They also focus on less familiar examples of landscape art over the past two centuries, from the public displays of monumental landscapes in late-eighteenth-century London to environmental art projects in present-day New York. / Steven Adams is principal lecturer in critical and cultural studies at the University of Hertfordshire. Anna Gruetzner Robins is lecturer in the history of art at the University of Reading." - Publisher.

Earthworks: Art and the Landscape of the Sixties, Boettger, Suzaan
7 Boettger, Suzaan
Earthworks: Art and the Landscape of the Sixties
Berkeley, CA University of California Press 2004 0520241169 / 9780520241169 Paperback Very Good 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
315 pp., illus., biblio., index; 26 cm. Near fine. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Remainder mark/foreedge. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. "Suzaan Boettger offers the first comprehensive history of the Earthworks movement in the United States, providing a fascinating and in-depth analysis of the monumental forms that initiated the broader genre of Land Art. Examining the art, the artists, their dealers and proponents, Boettger interprets Earthworks as a manifestation both of artists' personal stories and of the late 1960s social and political tumult. Boettger overturns many commonly held notions of Earthworks' origins and intentions. She argues that Robert Smithson's work on the Dallas-Fort Worth airport stimulated his thinking and that his writing about it catalyzed the movement. The visionary environments that followed, often sculpted in expansive and remote western terrains, were idealized by Americans and Europeans alike as displays of cowboy bravado. Boettger identifies earthworkers Michael Heizer, Dennis Oppenheim, Robert Morris, Walter de Maria, and Stephen Kaltenbach as former Californians whose treatment of the landscape reflects a western spirit. Her international purview integrates early work by the Europeans Barry Flanagan, Jan Dibbets, Richard Long, and Pino Pascali as precedents and parallels. Her examination of Earthworks' relationship to the ecology movement perceptively corrects a popular misconception about the artists' goals while acknowledging the social and cultural complexities of the period. Insightful discussions of Carl Andre, Sol LeWitt, and Claes Oldenburg--in addition to the artists mentioned above--are accompanied by many rare and new photographs of both the art and its creators. Witty, accessible, and scrupulously researched, Earthworks constructs day-to-day chronologies of the development of the artistic movement and its intersections with the larger public events of the time, including specific accounts of galleries, exhibitions, and criticism. Boettger's dynamic social history and psychological insights bring new meaning to this pivotal movement that both embodied and disrupted contemporary notions of art, nature, society, and their relationship to each other. / A prominent art critic in northern California in the 1980s, Suzaan Boettger (pronounced BET-ger) is now an art historian and active critic based in New York City. A popular speaker, she has lectured at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Queens Museum, and the Oakland Museum, and she regularly writes for Art in America." - Publisher.

Sculpture Since 1945
New York Oxford University Press; Oxford History of Art Ser. 1998 0192842056 / 9780192842053 Paperback Good 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
299 pp., illus. (some col.) ; 25 cm. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Creased front cover. Age toning. "Since 1945 the modern revolution in sculpture has gathered pace, and even the term sculpture has ceased to be the fixed category it once was. In Sculpture Since 1945, Andrew Causey provides a ground-breaking account of the development of post-War sculpture. In over 130 beautiful illustrations, Causey examines innovative and avant-garde works in relation to contemporary events, festivals, commissions, the marketplace, and the changing functions of museums. He also explores the use of everyday objects and the importance of sculptural context, discussing figurative and non-figurative works, Anti-form, Minimalism, experimental form, Earth art, landscape sculpture, installation, and performance art. A final chapter brings the discussion of sculpture right up to the present day by examining sculpture since 1980. The holistic picture of post-War sculpture which emerges in Sculpture Since 1945 establishes for the first time key events and themes around which future debate will center. / Andrew Causey is Professor and Head of the History of Art Department at Manchester University, and a Trustee of the Henry Moore Sculpture Trust and Henry Moore Foundation." - Publisher.

Christo and Jeanne-Claude: An Authorized Biography, Chernow, Burt; Volz, Wolfgang (Epilogue by)
11 Chernow, Burt; Volz, Wolfgang (Epilogue by)
Christo and Jeanne-Claude: An Authorized Biography
New York St. Martin's Griffin 2005 031234094X / 9780312340940 1st Paperback Very Good 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
390 pp., illus. (some col.), biblio., index; 24 cm. Near fine. Tight, clean copy. Stated "First St. Martin's Griffin Edition: January 2005." Remainder mark/tail edge. "For their sheer scale and breathtaking audacity, their works have made them among the most celebrated and controversial artists in the world. Valley Curtain stretched 1,250 feet across a valley in Rifle, Colorado. Wrapped Coast covered a mile and a half of Australian coastline with a million square feet of fabric. The Umbrellas deployed 3,100 umbrellas set in Japan and California, each nearly twenty feet tall. Surrounded Islands encircled eleven islands in Biscayne Bay, Florida with six and a half million square feet of bright pink fabric and Wrapped Reichstag enveloped the entire German parliament in shimmering silver fabric. For more than forty years, these and many other works by Christo and Jeanne-Claude have reconceived the art of the possible, turned natural and human monuments-streets, bridges, hills, trees, buildings, parks, and islands--into sculptures and paintings, and created dazzling new landscapes and startling new vistas. Often requiring years, even decades, of preparation and planning, these works-not merely feats of aesthetic daring but engineering and organizational marvels--exist for only a few weeks or less. Yet what makes these transient creations linger forever in the mind is their overwhelming and magisterial beauty. They are, in every sense, transformative, and, for the millions who have experienced them in person, unforgettable. Christo and Jeanne-Claude have been the frequent subjects of films, videos, catalogues, cartoons, monographs, exhibitions, and editorials. Until this biography by Burt Chernow, however, written with the full cooperation of the artists, nothing has connected the intimate details of their lives and the spectacular dimensions of their projects. Christo, the penniless Bulgarian refugee who made his way to Paris during the 1950s, and Jeanne-Claude, the socialite daughter of a prominent French general, seemed an unlikely couple, yet together they forged one of the most enduring partnerships in contemporary art. When they arrived in New York in 1964, Christo was already becoming well known in avant-garde circles for his wrappings of everyday objects Jeanne-Claude acted as manager, dealer, and accountant. Over time, as Chernow reveals, the fusion of their prodigious gifts-his drawings and her ability to draw things together-produced the works for which today they are known the world over. Chernow recounts their rise from relative obscurity to international renown, revealing both the sources of their art and the heights to which it has quite literally aspired. An epilogue by Wolfgang Volz, a longtime and close collaborator of the artists, as well as their exclusive photographer, provides a fascinating insider's view of what it is like to work, and dream, with them. Christo and Jeanne-Claude is an indelible portrait of the artists and their work, and a moving account of an extraordinary couple. / Burt Chernow lectured at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and was a professor of art history at Housatonic College in Bridgeport, Connecticut. He was also the founder and Director Emeritus of the Housatonic Museum of Art. The author of many books and essays, he died in 1997. Wolfgang Volz's photographs have appeared in Art, GEO, Paris Match, Der Spiegel, Life, and Time magazines. He has worked with Christo and Jeanne-Claude since 1972 and is the exclusive photographer of their work. He was also technical director of the project to wrap the Reichstag. He lives with his wife, Sylvie, in Dusseldorf, Germany." - Publisher.

"Saffron in the city: a colossal installation in New York's Central Park. February 2005 marked the ephemeral installation of a monumental work of art by Christo and Jeanne-Claude in New York City's Central Park. First conceived in 1979 and rejected by New York City government in 1981, the project was approved by Mayor Michael Bloomberg's administration in 2003. The work of art consisted of 7503 16-foot-high vinyl gates with saffron-colored fabric panels on twenty-three miles of the Park's walkways. Seen from the buildings surrounding the Park, The Gates looked like a saffron flowing river, while those walking through them experienced the ambience of a fluid golden ceiling. Financed entirely by Christo and Jeanne-Claude through their C.V.J. Corporation, The Gates were assembled and installed by thousands of paid workers. Completed on February 12, 2005, The Gates remained in place for sixteen days, after which they were removed and the materials recycled. The work of art was free for all visitors, who continued to use Central Park during the whole process. This historic event provided a memorable and joyous experience for New Yorkers and visitors. This book, which documents the entire project from its beginnings in 1979 to its completion in 2005, is the perfect souvenir for who want to remember this ephemeral work of art. / Christo and Jeanne-Claude, both born on June 13, 1935, have been working in collaboration since 1961. Previous large-scale projects include Wrapped Coast, Australia, 1968-69, Valley Curtain, Grand Hogback, Rifle, Colorado, 1970-72, Running Fence, Sonoma and Marin Counties, California, 1972-76, Surrounded Islands, Biscayne Bay, Greater Miami, Florida, 1980-83, The Pont Neuf Wrapped, Paris, 1975-85, The Umbrellas, Japan-USA, 1984-91, Wrapped Reichstag, Berlin, 1971-95, Wrapped Trees, Riehen, Switzerland, 1997-98." - Publisher.

Presenting an international array of artists against the background of world events in the 1960s, Crow portrays the ways in which the American art scene - including such key figures as Leo Castelli, Eva Hesse, Jasper Johns, Robert Morris, Robert Smithson, Cy Twombly, and Andy Warhol - fit into the corresponding European and international movements of the time, among them Situationalism, Conceptualism, Feminism, Environmentalism, and Op Art.

No priority/air, except by special arrangement. "Open Systems examines how international artists rethought the object of art in the last years of the 1960s and the early 1970s as they sought to connect with the increasingly urgent political developments of the time. Building on the structures of Minimalism and Conceptualism, the era saw the beginning of a radical departure from art's traditional focus to a new and wide-ranging experimentation with mediums that included dance, performance, and, most notably, film and video. Open Systems features the works of prominent artists working in Britain, Europe, South America, Japan, and the United States, and includes sculpture, sculptural installations, painting, film, video, photography, and printed matter. Among the artists examined are Alighiero Boetti, Marcel Broodthaers, Trisha Brown, Fluxus, Dan Graham, Ilya Kabakov, Richard Long, Gordon Matta-Clark, Paul McCarthy, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, On Kawara, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Gerhard Richter, Robert Smithson, Martha Rosler, and Franz West." - Publisher.
