Christo by Lawrence Alloway


Christo and Jeanne-Claude were born on the same date in 1935; Jeanne-Claude died on 2009. Their works were credited to just "Christo" until 1994 when the outdoor works and large indoor installations were retroactively credited to "Christo and Jeanne-Claude". The purpose of their art, they contend, is simply to create works of art or joy and beauty and to create new ways of seeing familiar landscapes. This concise and fairly well-illustrated study includes a short biographical chronology and a bibliography and list of exhibitions of Christo's early works from 1961 through 1969. The writer Lawrence Alloway (1926 - 1990) was an English art critic and curator who worked in the USA where he met Christo in the 60s.

George Segal by William C. Seitz


In 1961, the American artist George Segal (1924-2000) discovered a technique usable for life-size sculptures involving plaster and medical bandages used to set fractures. To create his sculptures Segal would wrap his subjects in the medical bandages dipped in plaster, allow the plaster to dry, and then cut off the hardened cast. He used himself as the model for his first life-size plaster sculpture, Man Sitting at a Table, but would used neighbors, family, friends and volunteers (never professionals), as his models thereafter. His sculptures where pure-white, frozen, lacking detail and Segal placed these blank canvases in realistic environments using props from the modern world. Later he improved his sculpting technique by pouring the plaster into casts, using them as molds in order to obtain greater detail. Segal would then paint the sculpture a single, bright hue.

William Seitz, who wrote this great monograph on the work of George Segal also wrote the earliest major text on Abstract Expressionism during his tenure as a curator at MoMA in the 1960s.

Fernando Botero by Klaus Gallwitz


The paintings of the renowned Columbian artist Fernando Botero introduce inflated forms, puffing up to an exaggerated size human figures, natural features, and objects of all kinds, celebrating the life within them while mocking their role in the world. The symbols of power and authority: presidents, soldiers and churchmen are Botero's targets. , or the wish - maybe inconsistent - not to be trapped by conventional religious subjects". The German art historian and curator Klaus Gallwitz, the former director of the Stadel Art Institute in Frankfurt, has prepared a beautiful art album with tens of plates, most of them in color.

Saul Steinberg - The Inspector


Saul Steinberg (1914 - 1999) did not represent what he saw; rather, he depicted people, places, and even numbers or words in styles borrowed from other art, high and low, past and present - this was the fundamental principle of his work: his art is about the ways artists make art. The Inspector art album represents Steinberg's view of "many of the worst & best aspects of the modern universe" including parades, time & space, music-writing, rubber-stamp architecture & society, the professional avant-garde, words & letters and cowboys. In his pictorial imagination, the very artifice of style, of images already processed through art, became the means to explore social and political systems, human foibles, geography, architecture, language and, of course, art itself.

 

Saul Steinberg - The Inspector

Saul Steinberg - The Inspector


Saul Steinberg is regarded as the best cartoonist America ever had. Publishing mainly in The New Yorker, Steinberg has erected standards of precision and graphic intelligence that had not existed in American illustration before him - his playfulness and elegance are of a sublime order. The following quote was taken from the Time Magazine issue of April 17, 1978 which dedicated its front cover story to "The Fantastic World of Steinberg".

Steinberg is a loner, a cosmopolitan Jewish exile, a refugee, a man of masks, languages and doctored identities, through whom the world's multiplicity is refracted as by a prism. In America, he is both outsider and insider: only he could have dreamed up the poster that summarizes the Manhattanite's provincial view of America: Ninth and Tenth avenues wide in the foreground, a strip of Hudson River, a smaller strip of New Jersey, and in the background a few scattered cities - Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago - with Japan and China in the distance.

 

סול סטיינברג Saul Steinberg, המהגר היהודי יליד רומניה, הגיע לארצות הברית מאירופה בשנת 1940, נטמע בתרבות האמריקנית, הפך חלק ממנה והיא חלק ממנו. לפני שהגיע לארצות הברית למד באיטליה ארכיטקטורה. בראיון לשבועון "טיים" הוא סיפר:

לימוד ארכיטקטורה הוא אימון נהדר לכל דבר חוץ מארכיטקטורה. אתה לומד שם כמה דברים בסיסיים, למשל, לחדד עפרונות. המחשבה המפחידה שמה שתיכננת על הנייר עלול להפוך לבניין ממשי, ממתנת את קוויך. לחלק גדול מן התלמידים היו לימודים אלה אליבי למשהו אחר או מלכודת. למדנו שם את כל הנוסחאות של התקופה. תקופתי אז היתה שלהי התנועה האמנותית הקוביסטית דרך בית-הספר של הבאוהאוז. בתעודת הגמר שלי צויין ,שאול סטיינברג, בן הגזע היהודי. התעודה נחתמה בחותם המלך עמנואל השלישי. זו היתה איטליה של שנת 1940, עמנואל השלישי חתם כמלך איטליה, כמלך אלבניה וכקיסר אתיופיה. היופי בעניין הוא זה, שהדיפלומה הוענקה על-ידי מלך שאינו עוד מלך איטליה, שאינו עוד מלך אלבניה, ושאינו אפילו קיסר אתיופיה. ושאני לא ארכיטקט. הדבר היחיד שנשאר בתוקף הוא הגזע היהודי

סטיינברג הוא "האמן המציץ" הרואה אנשים כחתולים מודאגים, את האמן כמוצר של עצמו, ואת חיי האדם היוצר כמודרכים ע"י השיעמום. ההומור ללא הפואנטה שלו עיצב את חשיבתם של אמני איור ורישום רבים ברחבי העולם המערבי.
