[African American Art] Dickerman, Leah and Elsa Smithgall.
Jacob Lawrence: The Migration Series.
A Fine tight copy with a previous owner name in a Fine dust jacket. In 1941, Jacob Lawrence completed a series of 60 small tempera paintings with text captions about the Great Migration, the mass movement of black Americans from the rural South to the urban North that began in 1915–16. Within months of its making, the Migration Series was divided between The Museum of Modern Art (even-numbered panels) and the Phillips Memorial Gallery (odd-numbered panels). The work has since become a landmark in the history of African American art, a monument in the collections of both institutions and a crucial example of the way in which history painting was radically reimagined in the modern era. This catalogue grounds Lawrence's Migration Series in the cultural and political debates that shaped the young artist's work and highlights its continued resonance for artists and writers today.

[Art Biography] Arnold, Bruce.
Jack Yeats.
A Fine unread copy in a Fine dust jacket. Jack Yeats (1871-1957) stands as a giant figure in Irish twentieth-century art. An isolated artist throughout his life, Yeats dominated solely through the talent, magic, and inventiveness of his painting. His vision and his standing, as well as many critical judgments during the forty years since his death, have provoked controversies which Bruce Arnold confronts in this major biography. The author tells the full story of the artist’s life and analyzes his prodigious output. This included not only some one thousand oil paintings and vast numbers of illustrations, comic cartoons, drawings, and watercolors but also seven novels and nine plays. An innately original man, Yeats eschewed all movements, took no pupils, taught only by example. Yet he exerted a fundamental and fascinating influence on Irish culture during his long and diverse life. Based on extensive research in primary sources, this generously illustrated book describes the life of Jack Yeats, son of the portrait painter John Butler Yeats and younger brother of the poet William Butler Yeats.

[Art Monograph] .
Jean Dubuffet: Towards an Alternative Reality. Essay by Mildred Glimcher. Writings by Jean Dubuffet.
A Fine tight copy with a previous owner name in a Fine dust jacket. Passionately believing that 'everyone could be a painter, Dubuffet looked to non-traditional sources - art by prisoners, psychics, and the insane - and to unusual materials - tar, sand, butterfly wings - to liberate his own creativity. The extraordinarily imaginative and varied results are viewed in this survey of his career. Insatiably curious about new ideas, fiercely skeptical about conventional ones, Dubuffet probed unexplored territory through his prose as well as his art - many appearing here for the first time. Dubuffet made several false starts as an artist before committing himself to painting full time in 1943. This book proceeds from the heavily impastoed portraits of the forties, through the well-known Hourloupe Cycle of the sixties, and onto the last works of Dubuffet the Non-lieux (No-ground). Dubuffet also experimented with lithographs, gouaches, assemblages and large scale public sculpture. As artist, writer, collector of more than 5000 examples of Art Brut, Dubuffet had a formidable impact on international postwar art. Refusing to conform to any one style, he dazzled with an inexhaustible inventiveness that continued nearly to his death at age eighty-three. This book captures the unique spirit of this remarkable artist.

[Art Monograph] Baumer, Angelica.
Gustav Klimt. Women.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine dust jacket. Gustav Klimt images have unprecedented force and originality. His dreamlike, delicately detailed compositions seem full of light, a symphony of dazzling golds, fiery reds and oranges, flashing purples and blues, and antique coppery greens. And, most beautiful are his pictures of women, among the most tender and aesthetically pleasing works in all art history. An essay provides invaluable background on Klimt's training, influences, and contemporary reception--and the striking, shimmering cover is in pure gold.
