strong text, inconsistent reproduction quality 7 août 2003
Par christopher wren - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Before Varnedoe and Karmel's Pollock monograph, which accompanied the MOMA / Tate retrospective a few yeas ago, this was the best available text-and-plates book about Pollock. In terms of its text, this book is still relevant and insightful. Like Elizabeth Frank, Landau does a lot of truly eye-opening comparison work throughout her book. She'll reprint a work by Picasso, say, or a Native American artifact, or a Pollock sketch, and then analyze the influence it exerted on one of Pollock's key canvases.
And unlike the Varnedoe/Karmel book, this volume reprints these several kinds of works in close proximity, often on the same or a facing page, a useful feature. Landau's remarks about Pollock's sources, outcomes, growth and directions are always at least provocative and often really instructive, particularly in her coverage of the late black paintings. Indeed, Landau's analysis is regularly listed and praised in other authors' bibliographies.
The drawbacks of the book are its numerous poor reproductions, and plates after all make the primary reason for buying an artist monograph. Many of the plates are excellent and crisp--"Lucifer," "Pasiphae," "Autumn Rhythm," the colorful, playful works following Pollock's marriage. But too many of the plates and fold-outs are muddy, and Pollock's use of silver or aluminum paint is simply beyond this book's ability--as with the gaudy and over-exposed looking gatefold that opens the book. "Blue Poles" and "Stenographic Figure" are among the book's other poor reprints. Until I saw the Varnedoe/Karmel reprint of "One: Number 31, 1950," and then again in "person" at the MOMA, I just flatly didn't understand how Pollock had approached it. It looks "ok" in Landau, but with a lessened resolution that just slightly confuses the webbing throughout.
Still, I value the book and particularly its text. As for the reproduction quality, I did buy a second copy to cannibalize it; I've posted many laminated pages throughout my classroom. But I got that copy at remaindered prices. At full cost, this is a 3 1/2 or 4 star book. At bargain prices, the book rates 4 or 4 1/2 stars. Varnedoe/Karmel is just visually superior.

A gorgeous retrospective of a brilliant body of work 19 mai 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This intelligent and lavishly illustrated volume, which first appeared in a 1989 hardcover edition, covers Pollock's entire career, his early influences, and the progression of the themes, techniques, and accomplishments of his life as an artist. Ellen Landau's text is enlightening, but the best part of this book is, inevitably, the illustrations themselves, which are an unparalleled feast for the eyes. For those who want to experience and understand Pollock's art (rather than dwell on his personal problems) this is an excellent choice.

If you're only going to buy one book on Pollock, this is it 20 septembre 2010
Par Charles S. Houser - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I strongly disagree with another Amazon reviewer who said the quality of the art reproductions in Landau's biography varied. As someone who has bought a lot of art books, I thought the color plates exceptionally vivid and a more than adequate basis for studying Pollock's work in light of Ellen Landau's insightful commentary. Every major work is presented as a full-page (or double page) image. They are simply labeled by the painting's title (and an alternate if a painting acquired one in the art world other than the one Pollock gave it himself) and the date; the usual caption clutter (medium, size, present owner) are provided in an appendix.

The narrative, divided into twelve chapters, is basically chronological. (Chapters are compact and can be read thoughtfully and leisurely in an hour or two.) Landau includes sufficient biographical information to help the reader appreciate the paintings. She doesn't ignore or minimize Pollock's alcoholism and character defects, neither does she dwell on them. The "evidence" and details concerning these matters are mostly confined to her extensive endnotes, along with expanded versions of key critics' comments on Pollock's work. Landau is cognizant of the influence of Thomas Hart Benton and gives it due attention(Readers who want to know more about the psychodynamics of the relationship between these two iconic American artists will want to read Henry Adams's Tom and Jack: The Intertwined Lives of Thomas Hart Benton and Jackson Pollock; see my Amazon review of that title). Readers with a lot of time on their hands who want a "womb to tomb" (to quote a favorite Pollock catch phrase) account of the artist's life are directed to Jackson Pollock: An American Saga.

Whatever biography you choose to read, you'll want Landau's book near at hand for the beautiful, detailed reproductions of Pollock's best-known paintings. The book's Selected Bibliography, unfortunately, includes only the works Landau consulted but did not cite in her notes. In other words, the reader will have to scour the notes to find other key works. (The bibliography in Adams's book is more recent, comprehensive, and reader-friendly).

Jackson Pollock by Ellen G. Landau 26 mai 2013
Par VICKIE M SIMMS - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I am a art history student and appreciate books with works of art that are well photographed and presented in the text in a fluid way. Jackson Pollock fits the bill. The text is easy to read while using art language. Landau describes Pollock's story with passion and clarity.

Many gorgeous plates, some spanning two pages up to 23 inches in width 25 août 2013
Par E. O'Connell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I never have enough time to read the accompanying text, so my reviews are based solely on the plates, as influenced by quantity, size, quality, and variety. This is a five-star collection encompassing Jackson Pollock's lifetime of art.

Many of the plates are vibrantly colored and the full size of one page (11.8 x 10.4 inches). There are more than a dozen pull-outs that are two full-sized pages (up to 23 inches wide). Accompanying the text are smaller-size plates, including Pollock's black and white sketches, the occasional works of his contemporaries and influences, and photographs of Pollock while painting.

Stand-outs include:
T.P.'s Boat in Menemsha Pond (c. 1934)
The Flame (c. 1934-38)
Untitled (Naked Man With Knife) (c. 1938-41)
Bird (1941)
The Magic Mirror (1941)
Male and Female (1942)
The Moon Woman (1942)
Pasiphae (1943)
Night Mist (1945) (extra large)
War (1947)
Reflection of the Big Dipper (1947)
Alchemy (1947)
Lucifer (1947) (extra large)
The Wooden Horse (1948)
Autumn Rhythm (1950) (extra large)
Blue Poles: Number 11, 1952 (1952) (extra large)
The Deep (1953)
Ocean Greyness (1953)
White Light (1954)
Search (1955)

And the forgoing list is merely a sampling of this large, well-organized collection.
