Sugimoto Portraits by Tracey Bashkoff

Book Description

New Lower Price Hiroshi Sugimoto here turns to the wax figures he first explored in his "Dioramas" series. Combining poetic imagination and noble elegance, this body of work presents life-size black-and-white portraits of historical figures--Henry VIII, each of his six wives and Oscar Wilde, among others--photographed in wax museums and dramatically lit so as to create haunting images. Featuring an interview with the artist by Tracey Bashkoff and essays by Carol Armstrong, Norman Bryson, Thomas Kellein and Nancy Spector, this book offers fresh insights into the work of this important contemporary artist. "Portraits" was created specially for the Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin and was exhibited at the former Guggenheim Soho.

Art of Another Kind by Tracey Bashkoff Art of Another Kind, Hardback (July 2012)

Featuring nearly 100 works by Louise Bourgeois, Alberto Burri, Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Pierre Soulages, Antoni Tapies and Zao Wou-Ki, among others, this collection-based exhibition explores the affinities and differences between artists working continents apart in a period of great transition and rapid creative development.

Kandinsky and the Harmony of Silence by Tracey Bashkoff Kandinsky and the Harmony of Silence, Hardback (June 2011)

Russian artist and theoretician Vasily Kandinsky (1866-1944) was a significant figure in 20th-century abstraction. His masterwork "Painting with White Border" (1913, Solomon R Guggenheim Museum), inspired by his native Moscow, emerged during an intensely creative period in his artistic development. This book examines the painting.

Museum of Non-objective Painting by Tracey Bashkoff Museum of Non-objective Painting, Paperback (July 2009)

Considering the origins of the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum when it was first known as the Museum of Non-Objective Painting, this book reveals the museums complex and sometimes twisted architectural history and the ambitious exhibition programme organized by Hilla Rebay, the museums founding Director and Curator from 1939 to 1952.
