Modigliani (Great Modern Masters)
by Amedeo Modigliani, Alberto Curotto (Translator), Jose Maria Faerna (Editor)

The latest title in the Great Modern Masters series of monographs on leading 20th-century artists offers 71 full-color illustrations and a lucid introduction on Modigliani. The work of this Italian painter and sculptor has never been more popular than it is today. His sensuous nudes and intense, mannered portraits have become favorites of collectors and museum-goers alike. This affordably priced, colorful hardcover captures the intensity of his art with beautifully reproduced colorplates.

Amedeo Modigliani : Portraits and Nudes (Pegasus Library)
by Anette Kruszynski
Amadeo Modigliani led the dissipated, extravagent life of a bohemian in Paris at the beginning of the century. Yet this apparently glittering and restless life, which came to a sudden end when he was just 35, is not reflected in his work at all. Modigliani's paintings and sculptures are marked by cool detachment, with often archaically austere deictions of the human figure and acutely characterized portraits. The avant-garde movements of the time, such as Cubism, Fauvism, and Futurism, had little effect on his art. 

It is not theory, but the human being that lies at the center of Modigliani's work. He drew inspiration from the artists of the Renaissance and the Rococo periods for his distanced, dignified portraits. His preferred models were friends and his companion Jeanne Hebuterne, but he also depicted simple country people. 

The author provides a sympathetic interpretation of Modigliani's career. She charts the artist's development from the penetrating psychological studies of his early portraits, through images of a more decorative nature - the graceful figures with the famous almond-shaped eyes and swan-like necks - to his mature depictions of nudes, which remain valid icons of femininity.

Paul Klee (Masters of Art)
by Paul Klee, Will Grohmann 
This colorful monograph features and surveys the 150 best-known works of Paul Klee, an artist famous for the playful complexity of his multi-media images. Klee never ceased his quest for new subjects and sources of inspiration, and he experimented with geometry, materials, and color to represent fauna and flora, music, the diurnal, and the nocturnal.
 As a teacher at the famous Bauhaus School in Weimar, Klee played an important role in the evolution of applied arts. Author Jean-Louis Ferrier provides an insightful text that explains the complex, often misunderstood work of Klee. In addition, this monograph includes extracts from Klee's theatrical work, including the famous Pedagogical Sketchbook used by his students at the Bauhaus. Comprehensive and fresh, this new study of Paul Klee will delight students and enthusiasts of twentieth-century art.

Pablo Picasso 1881-1973 : Genius of the Century (Basic Series)
Ingo F. Walther
One name in the history of the 20th century art stands out over all others: Pablo Picasso (1881-1973). As painter, graphic artist and sculptor, he displayed an inventive enterprise and innovative bravado that always kept him one step ahead of his contemporaries. As one of them, the painter Max Ernst, ruefully put it: "No one can touch Picasso. He is genius incarnate." The works selected here cover Picasso's entire output, from the less familiar to key masterpieces such as "Guernica", from the Blue and Rose Periods early in his career through his cubist and classicist phases and the formal experiments of the Thirties to his later involvement with politics in art.

The Ultimate Picasso
by Brigitte Leal, et al
... hefty, elegant, and inclusive, The Ultimate Picasso ... offers more than 1,200 reproductions (nearly 800 in color) spanning the artist's entire career. Smoothly translated from the French, the book weaves biographical detail and discussions of the art into a concise narrative. ("Olga became pregnant in the summer of 1920, and in Picasso's work forms blossomed and flesh took on the massive quality of stone.") The three authors are all experts--Léal and Bernadac are (respectively) present and former curators of the Musée Picasso in Paris, and Piot coauthored the catalogue raisonné of Picasso's sculpture. They clearly explain visual sources, duly acknowledge leading art historians' interpretations, and choose good quotes from contemporaries. Yet the text can be surprisingly skimpy. The 16-page section on Guernica, for example, has barely two pages of discussion about the painting and its genesis. The authors keep an extremely tight focus on their subject, with only as much mention of Picasso's contemporaries or the outside world as is absolutely necessary.  --Cathy Curtis -

Picasso Erotique
by Pablo Picasso, et al 
The career of the greatest painter of the twentieth century was played out in the shadow of Eros -- and of Thanatos. At the age of eight, Picasso's first drawings already displayed a precocious interest in the female form, and in the days leading up to his death he was still working obsessively on sketches of the female sex.
