New Books–MoMA

Lucian Freud: The Painter’s Etchings (M Freud .F77 F53 2007)

“One of the foremost figurative artists working today, Lucian Freud has redefined portraiture and the nude through his unblinking scrutiny of the human form. Although he is best known as a painter, etching is integral to his practice. This volume accompanies a major Museum of Modern Art exhibition that will present the full scope of Freud’s etchings, along with a critical selection of related paintings and drawings. Written by exhibition curator Starr Figura, it includes more than 70 etchings-from the artist’s rare early experiments of the 1940s to the increasingly complex compositions he has created since rediscovering the medium in the early 1980s-juxtaposed with some 23 paintings and 7 drawings. Includes 120 color illustrations.”

Martin Puryear (M Purye .P84 A4 2007)

“Over the last 30 years, Martin Puryear has created a body of work that defies categorization, creating sculpture that examines identity, culture and history. This book accompanies a November 2007 exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art that follows Puryear’s development from his first solo show, in 1977, to new works that will be presented for the first time. In 2008 the exhibition will travel to the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Texas, The National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Includes 165 color illustrations.”
