The art of Alice Neel (1900–1984) distinguished itself from that of her American contemporaries by the special intimacy of its style, in which her drawing practice was a decisive factor. Though somewhat less known than her paintings, Neel’s drawings and watercolors articulate an array of influences--German Expressionist and Neue Sachlichkeit painting, the Ashcan School, an early sojourn in Cuba--that accompanied her through her tentative beginnings in the mid-1920s through to the maturity of her art after the Second World War, when she found room to accommodate abstraction and Pop art. This volume, published for the first European exhibition of Neel’s works on paper, spans the years 1926 to 1982, and gathers color and ink-only portraits and street scenes, as well as her illustrations for an edition of Dostoyevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov.

Michelangelo Pistoletto (born 1933) is one of Arte Povera's most significant protagonists. It is with the Mirror Paintings that Pistoletto's name is mostly closely identified, an ongoing series begun in 1962 that has earned him rapid and enduring international recognition. These works are made from sheets of mirror-finished stainless steel, fitted with a full-length portrait photograph that has been meticulously traced and painted onto its surface (after 1971 the image was silkscreened on). The inclusion in the work of the viewer, his or her surroundings and his or her interaction with the photographed person in the mirror is the key to the boggling reflexivity that drives this work. This book evaluates the Mirror Paintings of the past four years. It includes an interview with the artist and a fully illustrated chronology of Mirror Paintings from 1962 to the present.

Anish Kapoor is best known for his curvy, enigmatic sculptures in fiberglass, stone and stainless steel. These drawings represent a more private and personal side of his practice. This first book about the drawings ranges from the mid 1990s to the present with color saturated voids and eclipses that clearly feed and complement his sculpture. Jeremy Lewison, former Director of Collections at the Tate, who has known and worked with Kapoor for many years, places this recent work in context of early, overtly symbolic drawings, and of Modernist abstraction, in which Kapoor, like his colleagues, seeks to move beyond the decorative to the sublime. Drawings offers a host of new insights and images, and will be the standard reference on its subject.

It was a sensation, indeed, when the young British artists took over the art scene in the 1990s. But what came before them? With works from more than 100 artists, Blast to Freeze traces the epoch-making art movements of an entire British century, from the outbreak of World War I to the collapse of the Soviet Union, beginning and ending with a decided break from the traditional. In 1914 a group of young British artists, the Vorticists, in their avant-garde journal Blast!, propagated a style that blended influences from French cubism and Italian futurism into an independent British modernism. In turn, mavericks such as Henry Moore and Francis Bacon are unthinkable without the British primitivists and surrealists of the 20s and 30s. The specifically British brand of pop art began with the legendary exhibitions of the Independent Group in the 50s, and in the 80s, new British sculpture emerged, represented by important proponents such as Tony Cragg and Antony Gormley. The YBAs, presented to the world in the exhibition Freeze, jointly organized by Damien Hirst and friends in the London Docklands in 1988, brings the survey to a close.

Presenting nine critical essays by leading scholars--among them T.J. Clark, Robert Storr, James Coddington, Rosalind Krauss, and Kirk Varnedoe--this collection offers dramatically different ways of understanding Jackson Pollock's art and influence. Revealing not just the richness of Pollock's work, but also the vitality and diversity of contemporary criticisms, these texts discuss the crisis of easel painting, Pollock's relationship with his wife, artist Helen Frankenthaler, the Americanization of Europe, and the place of chaos in Pollock's work. Based on a symposium held in 1999 during The Museum of Modern Art, New York's retrospective exhibition of Pollock's oeuvre, this volume is a companion to Jackson Pollock: Key Interviews, Articles, and Reviews, a collection of older texts by or about the artist.
