Robert Rauschenbergs engagement with photography began in the late 1940s under the tutelage of Aaron Siskind and Hazel Larsen Archer at Black Mountain College in North Carolina. Their combined influence was so great that for a time Rauschenberg was unsure whether to pursue painting or photography as a career. Instead he chose both. This volume gathers and surveys Rauschenbergs numerous uses of photography for the first time. It includes portraits of friends, studio shots, photographs used in the Combines series, silkscreens, photographs of lost works and works in progress, allowing us to re-imagine almost the entirety of the artists work in light of his always inventive uses of photography, while also supplying previously unseen glimpses into his social nexus of the 1950s and 60s.

**A New York Times Editors Choice** "The most substantive biography of the artist to date...propulsive, positive and persuasive."—Holland Cotter, New York Times Book Review **PEN / Jacqueline Bograd Weld Award for Biography Finalist** **A Marfield Prize Finalist** Cy Twombly was a man obsessed with myth and history—including his own. Shuttling between stunning homes in Italy and the United States where he perfected his room-size canvases, he managed his public image carefully and rarely gave interviews. Upon first seeing Twombly’s remarkable paintings, writer Joshua Rivkin became obsessed himself with the mysterious artist, and began chasing every lead, big or small—anything that might illuminate those works, or who Twombly really was. Now, after unprecedented archival research and years of interviews, Rivkin has reconstructed Twombly’s life, from his time at the legendary Black Mountain College to his canonization in a 1994 MoMA retrospective; from his heady explorations of Rome in the 1950s with Robert Rauschenberg to the ongoing efforts to shape his legacy after his death. Including previously unpublished photographs, Chalk presents a more personal and searching type of biography than we’ve ever encountered, and brings to life a more complex Twombly than we’ve ever known.

Many of Cy Twombly’s paintings and drawings include handwritten words and phrases—naming or quoting poets ranging from Sappho, Homer, and Virgil to Mallarmé, Rilke, and Cavafy. Enigmatic and sometimes hard to decipher, these inscriptions are a distinctive feature of his work. Reading Cy Twombly poses both literary and art historical questions. How does poetic reference in largely abstract works affect their interpretation? Reading Cy Twombly is the first book to focus specifically on the artist’s use of poetry. Twombly’s library formed an extension of his studio and he sometimes painted with a book open in front of him. Drawing on original research in an archive that includes his paint-stained and annotated books, Mary Jacobus’s account—richly illustrated with more than 125 color and black-and-white images—unlocks an important aspect of Twombly’s practice. Jacobus shows that poetry was an indispensable source of reference throughout Twombly’s career; as he said, he “never really separated painting and literature.” Among much else, she explores the influence of Ezra Pound and Charles Olson; Twombly’s fondness for Greek pastoral poetry and Virgil’s Eclogues; the inspiration of the Iliad and Ovid’s Metamorphoses; and Twombly’s love of Keats and his collaboration with Octavio Paz. Twombly’s art reveals both his distinctive relationship to poetry and his use of quotation to solve formal problems. A modern painter, he belongs in a critical tradition that goes back, by way of Roland Barthes, to Baudelaire. Reading Cy Twombly opens up fascinating new readings of some of the most important paintings and drawings of the twentieth century.

Our homes contain us, but they are also within us. They can represent places to be ourselves, to recollect childhood memories, or to withdraw into adult spaces of intimacy; they can be sites for developing rituals, family relationships, and acting out cultural expectations. Like the personal, social, and cultural elements out of which they are constructed, homes can be not only comforting, but threatening too. The home is a rich theme running through post-war western art, and it continues to engage contemporary artists today - yet it has been the subject of relatively little critical writing. Art and the Home: Comfort, Alienation and the Everyday is the first single-authored, up-to-date book on the subject. Imogen Racz provides a theme-led discussion about how the physical experience of the dwelling space and the psychological complexities of the domestic are manifested in art, focusing mainly on sculpture, installation and object-based practice; discussing the work and ideas of artists as diverse as Louise Bourgeois, Gordon Matta-Clark, George Segal and Cornelia Parker within their artistic and cultural contexts.

La exposición refleja la historia del Black Mountain College (BMC), fundado en 1933 en Carolina del Norte y concebido como universidad experimental que situaba al arte en el centro de una educación liberal que pretendía educar mejor a los ciudadanos para participar en la sociedad democrática. La educación era interdisciplinaria y concedía gran importancia al debate, la investigación y la experimentación, dedicando la misma atención a las artes visuales –pintura, escultura, dibujo- que a las llamadas artes aplicadas –tejidos, cerámica, orfebrería, así como a la arquitectura, la poesía, la música y la danza.

In a career that has spanned nearly 50 years, Robert Rauschenberg has redefined the art of our time. Once branded the bad boy of American modernism, Rauschenberg has taken a revolutionary approach to traditional art forms and worked in an extraordinarily diverse range of mediums. This volume, which explores the entire scope of his achievement, accompanies the first retrospective exhibition of Rauschenberg's work held since 1976, opening at the Guggenheim Museum, New York, in September 1997 and traveling to Houston in early 1998 and then to Europe and Asia. Four essays by leading scholars and curators interpret and analyze Rauschenberg's art while emphasizing his unique contribution across disciplines. Two essays by former collaborators provide insight into his involvement with avant-garde performance and technology. And more than 500 illustrations reproduce Rauschenberg's challenging art, from his revolutionary all-white paintings and acclaimed Combines to prints, photographs, and the recent overseas projects that Rauschenberg has pursued in the belief that art and collaboration have the power to bring about social change. This comprehensive book, which includes an illustrated chronology of Rauschenberg's life and work and up-to-date exhibition and performance histories, will be the essential monograph on Robert Rauschenberg.

The first book to take a transnational view of destruction in abstract painting of the postwar period.
Author: Paul Schimmel
The first book to take a transnational view of destruction in abstract painting of the postwar period. Painting the Void: 1949–1962 focuses on one of the most significant consequences of the rise of gestural abstraction in twentieth-century painting: artists' literal assault on the picture plane. Responding to the social and political climate of the postwar period—especially the crisis of humanity resulting from the atomic bomb—international artists ripped, cut, burned, or affixed objects to the traditionally two-dimensional canvas. The exhibition and accompanying catalogue mark the first time that these strategies have been considered together as a coherent mode of artistic production, expanding the scholarship on this critical moment in history. Artists featured in the exhibition include very well-known figures as well as more obscure ones, though no less important, such as Robert Rauschenberg, Lee Bontecou, Yves Klein, Niki de Saint Phalle, Alberto Burri, Lucio Fontana, Salvatore Scarpitta, Antoni Tàpies, and Kazuo Shiraga, as well as Jean Fautrier, Raymond Hains, John Latham, Otto Müehl, Jacques Villeglé, and Shozo Shimamoto.

This 3-vol. work constitutes a vastly enlarged and expanded new edition of the Index to American Photographic Collections, 3rd enlarged edition, differing from the previous editions in two important respects. First is the inclusion of holdings from outside the United States, a natural evolution in our shrinking world. The second is the inclusion of exhibition histories, cross-referenced by photographer and sponsoring institution, providing a useful new context for evaluating less well-known photographers.
