Man with a Blue Scarf: On Sitting for a Portrait by Lucian Freud, Gayford, Martin
7 Gayford, Martin Man with a Blue Scarf: On Sitting for a Portrait by Lucian Freud
Thames & Hudson 2013 0500289719 / 9780500289716 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. "An extraordinary record of a great artist in his studio, it also describes what it feels like to be transformed into a work of art." -ARTnews Lucian Freud (1922-2011), widely regarded as the greatest figurative painter of ou r time, spent seven months painting a portrait of the art critic Martin Gay ford. The daily narrative of their encounters takes the reader into that mo st private place, the artist's studio, and to the heart of the working meth ods of this modern master-both technical and subtly psychological. From thi s emerges an understanding of what a portrait is, but something else is als o created: a portrait, in words, of Freud himself. This is not a biography, but a series of close-ups: the artist at work and in conversation at resta urants, in taxis, and in his studio. It takes one into the company of the p ainter for whom Picasso, Giacometti, and Francis Bacon were friends and con temporaries, as were writers such as George Orwell and W. H. Auden. The book is illustrated with many of Lucian Freud's other works, telling ph otographs taken by David Dawson of Freud in his studio, and images by such great artists of the past as van Gogh and Titian who are discussed by Freud and Gayford. Full of wry observations, the book reveals the inside story of how it feels to pose for a remarkable artist and become a work of art. 63 illustrations, 57 in color

8 Growe, Bernd Degas
Taschen America, LLC 1996 3822806633 / 9783822806630 Paperback Near Fine 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. "No art could be less spontaneous than mine. Inspiration, spontaneity, temp erament are unknown to me. One has to do the same subject ten times, even a hundred times over. In art, nothing should look like chance, not even move ment." Edgar Degas In terms of both theme and technique, the key to understanding the early wo rk of Edgar Degas (1834-1917) is classical painting. Although he was eventu ally associated with the Impressionists and even participated in their join t exhibitions, Degas never adopted a purely Impressionist approach. Degas's work, reflecting an extremely personal and psychological perspective, emphasizes the scenic or concentrates on the detail. Thus, Degas's painting is often discussed with reference to the rise of short-exposure photography. Thematically, nature proved less interesting to the artist than the life and inhabitants of the modern metropolis. Degas primarily sought his motifs in ballet salons, at the race track or circus, or in bedrooms - but dancers always remained his favorite theme.

Ai Weiwei Speaks, Obrist, Hans Ulrich
17 Obrist, Hans Ulrich Ai Weiwei Speaks
Penguin Publishing Group 2011 0241957540 / 9780241957547 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. If artists betray the social conscience and the basic principles of being h uman, where does art stand then? Ai Weiwei--artist, architect, curator, publisher, poet and urbanist--extended the notion of art and is one of the world's most significant creative and cultural figures. In this series of interviews, conducted over several years with the curator Hans Ulrich Obrist, he discusses the many dimensions of his artistic life, ranging over subjects including ceramics, blogging, nature, philosophy and the myriad influences that have fed into his work. He also talks candidly about his father, his childhood spent in exile and his criticism of the Chinese state. Together, these extraordinary discussions are an essential reminder of the need for personal, political and artistic freedom.

Flying Colours: The Toni Onley Story, Onley, Toni
18 Onley, Toni Flying Colours: The Toni Onley Story
Harbour 2002 1550172980 / 9781550172980 Hardcover Near Fine/Very Good 
A clean hardcover, no markings throughout, NOT an ex-library book:(inscribe d by author) If you're strolling a beach or ferry deck as sunset casts its glow on Briti sh Columbia's Coast Mountains, there's a good chance someone within earshot will say, "It looks just like a Toni Onley." That's how closely Onley is i dentified with the landscape of Canada's West Coast. Don't be fooled. The serenity of those watercolours reflects only one facet of Onley's work--and very little of his tumultuous life. Flying Colours gi ves you the whole canvas, from a rustic riverbank on the Isle of Man to a p lane wreck on a mountain glacier. With sly humour, disarming candour and an artist's eye for detail, Onley recalls a life of professional triumphs and personal tragedies. For a painter known for landscapes and collages, Onley proves a dab hand at word portraits, from haughty maharajahs and quirky Ma nxmen to the alcoholic--and even homicidal--habitués of an artists' colony in Mexico. None is more colourful than Onley himself. From the cocky schoolboy paintin g an extra petal on a daffodil to the Rolls-Royce rebel facing down Revenue Canada--and winning--Onley's passion for art and zest for life leap from e very page. Art lovers will cherish his lucid, unaffected insights into the creative process, not to mention the lavish illustrations, representing eve ry stage of Onley's career. An Officer of the Order of Canada, Toni Onley was born in 1928 on the Isle of Man, where he received his early training and was influenced by the work of the great British watercolourists. He came to Canada in 1948. Onley's work is featured in galleries around the w
