HOLY TERROR

By: BOB COLACELLO

Price: $9.00

Publisher: COOPER SQUARE PRESS:

Seller ID: IM501576

ISBN: 0815410085

Condition: GOOD CONDITION


Written by a former editor of Warhol's celebrity-celebrating Interview magazine and packed with names, this hard-hitting memoir presents an insider's look at the "Pope of Pop Art," Andy Warhol (1928-1987), whose eclectic oeuvre is comparable to Picasso's or Pollock's in its impact on modern art and culture. While examining Warhol's personality, struggles, and achievements, this book presents its subject with a clarity that is both unsparing and compassionate, disillusioned and inspired. Holy Terror invites readers to revisit the sex, drugs, parties, discos, and New York art scene that dominate... View more info

MEMOIRS OF THE LIFE OF JOHN CONSTABLE

By: C.R. LESLIE

Price: $6.00

Publisher: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS:

Seller ID: IM262548

ISBN: 0801491908

Condition: GOOD CONDITION


C.R. Leslie's memoir of his friend John Constable was first published in 1843 (with an expanded second edition in 1845) and has remained the standard biography of Constable ever since. The book is chiefly compiled from Constable's own correspondence and conversation; indeed its great authority arises from the fact that the story is told almost throughout in the subject's own words. Constable wrote as he painted, with an acute and serious eye on the subject, and with a spontaneous presentation of imagery; he also showed over and over again a robust wit and a taste for gossip. Leslie's memoir is... View more info

Condition: GOOD CONDITION


The vivid story of a tightly knit group of travelers--connoisseurs, collectors, scientists--who dedicated themselves to exploring and preserving what they referred to as "Old Japan" and Old Japan's lasting influence on the culture of Gilded Age America. After the Civil War, the United States--as cultural historian and critic Christopher Benfey argues--lost its philosophical moorings and looked eastward, to "Old" Japan and its seemingly untouched indigenous culture, for balance and perspective. Japan, meanwhile, was trying to reinvent itself as a more cosmopolitan, modern state, transforming in... View more info

Fourteen years ago, the artist Dorothea Tanning published Birthday, a collection of reminiscences.

At its center is the relationship, tenderly rendered, between Tanning and her famed husband, the enigmatic surrealist Max Ernst. Wh... View more info
